David Ford: ...when they show some grace, but that is not always forthcoming. As for the amendment, it is for Members to choose how they view the two candidates. It is certainly not my position to criticise Edwin Poots. However, I was slightly surprised when I read the amendment, specifically because Mr Poots was described as "Chairman of the Committee of the Centre". I accept that that Committee has a...

Edwin Poots: .... I do not underestimate our ask of the surgeons in Dublin. I am asking a lot of them, so it is not unreasonable that they do not immediately jump up and say, "We want to facilitate Minister Poots and his request". We need to recognise that, if they agree to assist us, they will be taking on a major challenge and will need our respect. We will continue the negotiations, which are at...
Edwin Poots: ...the highest judicial figures in the land. I just did not feel confident that I would succeed, nor did my skilled QCs." Those QCs were David Schofield and Nick Hanna. Those are not the words of Edwin Poots; they are the words of His Honour Judge Marrinan.
Christopher Stalford: ..., Sir Jeffrey Donaldson and Oliver McMullan, who have both experienced close family bereavements this week. The Speaker has also given me leave to say a few words about the passing of Mr Charlie Poots.

Edwin Poots: I welcome the Commission’s intention to promote equality of opportunity and fair treatment in all recruitment practices, and its commitment to advertise publicly all vacancies. What is the religious breakdown of the current staff, and is it in line with the population of Northern Ireland?
Edwin Poots: Bearing in mind that some Members have convictions for membership of the IRA, perhaps it would be in order for those Members to declare when they left the IRA or whether they are still members of it.
Edwin Poots: Given the Member’s comments on the 30-year-old papers, would it not now be appropriate to call for a public inquiry into the SDLP-inspired gun-running by the Irish Government?
Edwin Poots: Given the problems indicated in the finances of the Housing Executive, and the fact that over the past few years we have seen rent increases above the inflation rate, can the Minister assure the House that rent increases will be kept as close to inflation as possible?
Edwin Poots: asked the Minister of Finance and Personnel if he has any plans to derate Orange, Black, Apprentice Boys and Ancient Order of Hibernians halls. 4. (AQO 106/99)
Edwin Poots: — to be seen to be more Republican than necessary, but she should not let that affect her dealings with the workforce. She should employ everybody on an equal basis.
