Northern Ireland Assembly: Assembly Business (14 Jun 2021)

Edwin Poots: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. The resignation of the First Minister has taken place today, and the appointment of a new First Minister is critical to the Assembly.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Matter of the Day: Undermining the Public Health Message (14 Jun 2021)

Edwin Poots: I want to make it absolutely clear that what happened in the Europa Hotel was wrong. The Member of Parliament who was caught up in it was wrong in what he did. I welcome the fact that he apologised very quickly for what happened and is, therefore, seeking to put things right. I sincerely wish that Sinn Féin had apologised for its actions at the Bobby Storey funeral, where a far greater...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Assembly Business: Personal Statement from the First Minister Arlene Foster (14 Jun 2021)

Edwin Poots: I thank our outgoing First Minister, the Rt Hon Arlene Foster MLA, for her very considered and, indeed, powerful speech this afternoon. Arlene and I have worked together since 2003, and we have had much common ground over those years. Arlene is a unionist, and she is also a devolutionist. I believe that has, largely, been built on the fact that she and her family came through troubled times....

I met Diane Dodds, the Northern Ireland Economy Minister yesterday, and I am meeting Edwin Poots, the Northern Ireland Agriculture Minister, later today, so we are doing extensive outreach within Northern Ireland.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs: Mullaghglass Landfill Site (25 May 2021)

Edwin Poots: Yes, I have plans to visit the site in the near future. I recognise that there have been a substantial number of complaints from the residents in that area.

The greater part of that investment, some £43 million for the Loughry campus in Cookstown, is in food processing. We are absolutely committed to ensuring that rural communities do not...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs: Tackling Rural Poverty and Social Isolation (25 May 2021)

That is a demonstration of our commitment to the rural community, which goes beyond the agriculture sector, and of our ability to assist rural communities in a tangible way in conjunction with other key bodies. For example, the farm families health checks will be carried out in conjunction with trusts. Much of the work that we will do...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs: Applications to Area-based Schemes (25 May 2021)

Edwin Poots: Last November, I stated my belief that the decision of the independent panel in review-of-decision cases should be final.

Those targets will be discussed at the forthcoming international meeting known as COP15, the fifteen meeting of the Conference of Parties to the...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs: Climate Change (25 May 2021)

Edwin Poots: With your permission, Mr Speaker, I will answer questions 1 and 5 together. I want to ensure that Northern Ireland plays its part in minimising greenhouse gas emissions and tackling climate change head-on. I am committed to Northern Ireland having its own climate change legislation to achieve that. We do not need just any Bill; we need the right, evidenced-based climate change Bill that sets...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Ministerial Statement: North/South Ministerial Council: Transport (25 May 2021)

Jim Allister: If Mr Edwin Poots is as good as his word, that will have been one of the last North/South meetings until the Union-dismantling protocol is, itself, dismantled. As an enthusiast for the Belfast Agreement, the Minister must know that it is said to be built on the equilibrium of sustaining east-west relations and North/South relations. With the key east-west economic relations having been...
