Northern Ireland Assembly: Fuel Costs (18 Sep 2000)

Edwin Poots: This is a very timely debate and I thank the Members who brought it forward. We have to understand how we arrived at this situation. The policy of this Government and the previous Government was to introduce a fuel escalator. The escalator was allegedly to encourage less people to use private transport and more people to use public transport. Mr McGrady indicated that it was the Conservative...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Washington Visit of First Minister and Deputy First Minister (25 Sep 2000)

Edwin Poots: The statement by the First Minister and the Deputy First Minister suggests that our views on police reform were put to the President. Was that view a concerted one, or, as the press has reported it, were two disparate points of view put forward in something that was more like a schoolyard squabble than the dialogue of statesmen? I want the First and the Deputy First Ministers to apologise to...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Civic Forum (25 Sep 2000)

Edwin Poots: Did the Orange Order make nominations to the Civic Forum? Were any of its nominations taken up? It seems strange to me that, in spite of the fact that there was to be equality in the Civic Forum and a cross-community element, one of the largest — probably the largest — organisation in the Protestant community has been snubbed.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Finance and Personnel: Extra Exchequer Funding (25 Sep 2000)

Edwin Poots: On a point of order, Deputy Speaker. Is it reasonable to exclude Mr Close’s question, given that the Minister of Education was to answer questions first? Mr Close was, therefore, not entirely at fault for not being in the Chamber.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Retail Outlets (2 Oct 2000)

Edwin Poots: I am in an unusual situation today in that I have some sympathy with what Mr Dallat had to say. The motion, as it stands, is not acceptable, but the general idea behind it was good enough, and I certainly have a lot of sympathy with it. I go to towns in my own area, like Dunmurry or Dromore, which were once vibrant shopping towns. Once many people would have been seen during the day going in...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Agriculture And Rural Development: Beef Exports Ban (2 Oct 2000)

Edwin Poots: 7. asked the Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development when a decision for the removal of the ban on beef exports will be made. (AQO 91/00)

Northern Ireland Assembly: Culture, Arts And Leisure: Maze Prison Site (2 Oct 2000)

Edwin Poots: 9. asked the Minister of Culture, Arts and Leisure if he has any plans to consider the viability of utilising the Maze Prison site as a centre for sporting excellence. (AQO 90/00)

Northern Ireland Assembly: North/South Ministerial Council: Second Plenary Meeting (2 Oct 2000)

Edwin Poots: In the absence of the Regional Development Minister, the Deputy First Minister could seek advice from the well-known West Belfast MLA who is an expert on motability. Are the Irish Government satisfied that 13 sectoral meetings have taken place? Are they satisfied with the level of participation by Unionist Ministers?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Programme for Government (24 Oct 2000)

Edwin Poots: The Programme for Government has a lot of meaningless statements in it, and once one removes a lot of the verbiage and refines the details, one finds that the First Minister’s scriptwriters have failed to cover up the all-Ireland nature of the current process. I see one North/South body after another, whether it be language, health, road safety, tourism, trade, co-operation, strategic...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Civic Forum (24 Oct 2000)

Edwin Poots: If evidence were required to show that the Orange Order should have been appointed to the Civic Forum, perhaps it is in today’s debate; particularly after comments from those representing the Nationalist community in this Assembly. Ms Carmel Hanna, who I deem to be a very reasonable Nationalist, clearly does not understand the Orange Order, its workings, or what it is about. Obviously,...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Commonwealth Parliamentary Association (24 Oct 2000)

Edwin Poots: They are racists.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Zero Waste Strategy (24 Oct 2000)

Edwin Poots: I am mystified by this motion’s being put down in the first place. We have in this Assembly a structure of Departments and Committees. The Environment Committee deals with this, and both proposers of the motion sit on that Committee. That Committee looked at and gave its unanimous support to a waste management strategy proposed by the Department. That policy was proposed on 20 March 2000...

Northern Ireland Assembly: The Environment British-Irish Council Sectoral Meeting (6 Nov 2000)

Edwin Poots: Why did the Minister omit the names of the representatives of the Scottish Executive, the National Assembly for Wales, the Isle of Man Government and the states of Jersey and Guernsey? That is not very inclusive. I would be as interested to know about their representatives as about those of the Irish Government. Regarding the OSPAR regional quality status report on the Celtic seas, did the...

Northern Ireland Assembly: The Environment British-Irish Council Sectoral Meeting: Food Standards Agency (6 Nov 2000)

Edwin Poots: Will the Food Safety Promotion Board — the all-Ireland executive body — adopt the best working practice, as set out in the Food Standards Agency’s statement? If so, will the board raise the issue of the dumping of BSE carcasses close to rivers in the Irish Republic, where there is official support for such dumping? We know that JCBs have been used in BSE dumping for quite a while in the...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Office of First minister and deputy first minister: British-Irish Council (6 Nov 2000)

Edwin Poots: Can the Office of the First Minister and the Deputy First Minister confirm that the British-Irish Council will continue in its present format and that the Office of the First Minister and the Deputy First Minister will not stop IRA/Sinn Féin Ministers from attending?
