Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs: Climate Change Bill: Consultation (13 Apr 2021)

Edwin Poots: The Climate Change Committee is the expert independent panel set up by the UK Government. They have appointed independent experts to give that advice. Our Department works closely with all the bodies and NGOs involved in environmental issues. We provide them with significant financial support, and we listen to what they have to say and engage with them on the issues. I suggest that the...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs: Pet Vaccinations (13 Apr 2021)

Edwin Poots: I thank the Member for her question. I welcome the fact that the mitigation was introduced in January and gave us those six months. I was not looking for six months to allow us time to prepare, although some people were; I was looking for six months to negotiate away the nonsense of pets having to be treated for conditions that do not exist in the United Kingdom or the Republic of Ireland....

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs: Climate Change Bill: Consultation (13 Apr 2021)

Edwin Poots: As I indicated to Ms Dolan, we have been taking advice from the Climate Change Committee, which is a panel of independent experts. I recently received a letter from the chair of that committee. It indicated that the committee's "analysis has not produced a scenario for the UK net zero in 2050 that sees Northern Ireland reach net zero in the same year. We are not therefore able precisely to...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs: Carbon Sequestration (13 Apr 2021)

Edwin Poots: I want to engage closely with the Assembly on that work. We have significant opportunities for carbon storage in our peatlands, but that will involve wetting those peatlands. As a consequence, the farms that are closest will most likely lose the ability to graze their lands, certainly for as long as they are currently able to. Therefore, those farms need to be adequately compensated. The...

Edwin Poots: My officials have confirmed that there is no further update at this time, following the information provided pursuant to AQW 10099/17-22 and the Member's freedom of information request, DAERA/20-334, which was received on 12 December. My officials have again confirmed that the project, which relates to the reinstatement of the hydroelectric scheme at Roe Valley Country Park, cannot be...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs: Islandmagee Gas Storage Project (13 Apr 2021)

Edwin Poots: I have received a portfolio of documents on the Islandmagee gas storage proposals. My Department is the competent authority on the marine licence, and I am also considering review documentation for the other two DAERA licences that were issued back in 2014 — a water discharge consent and a water abstraction licence. The documentation is comprehensive and will therefore take some time to be...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs: Veterinary Education Facility (13 Apr 2021)

Edwin Poots: There is an increasing acceptance that the Northern Ireland agri-food industry requires a more assured supply of veterinarians than is available from the existing sources. However, there are a number of possible options for meeting that need. In my absence in early March, Minister Gordon Lyons met the vice chancellors of Ulster University and Queen's University Belfast. He proposed an...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs: Fishing Vessels: Customs Declaration (13 Apr 2021)

Edwin Poots: As you may be aware, customs formalities are not a devolved issue, although my Department has been liaising with HMRC to seek clarity on those issues. The HMRC advice states that for fish caught in UK territorial waters, the EU's view is that there is the need for customs and regulatory requirements, including the submission of safety and security declarations by the fishers on each landing....

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs: Agricultural Policy (13 Apr 2021)

Edwin Poots: In 2018, DAERA undertook an engagement exercise, gathering a broad range of stakeholders' views on future agricultural policy. Those views and further stakeholder engagement have been central to developing my vision for future agriculture in Northern Ireland. My Department is now at an advanced stage in the development of a draft policy framework portfolio, which I hope to publish in the...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Assembly Business: Tributes to His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh (12 Apr 2021)

Thomas Buchanan: ...to country and Commonwealth with great humour, humility and, indeed, humanity. There is no doubt that he has left us all with a great example to follow. I remember the day, which my colleague Edwin Poots referred to, when the Queen and Prince Philip came to open the new South West Acute Hospital in Enniskillen, and I remember the humour that Prince Philip presented that day. As I was...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Ministerial Breaches of the Executive's COVID-19 Messaging (1 Apr 2021)

Jonathan Buckley: .... I cannot but be moved by their accounts of what they have had to deal with. I listened to Mr Nesbitt's account. How could you not be moved? I listened to the accounts of Kellie Armstrong and Edwin Poots. How many other stories do we have where people feel a sense of regret that, because they followed the regulations and the law, they were not able to bury their loved ones in a manner...

I wish him well on that journey, and I pay tribute to Minister Lyons for his work...

We took three months during the summer to re-engage lots of vital services. Mr Poots commented on that. Those many dedicated individuals want to get back to what they do best, which are their specialities, in order to support their patient cohort and so that we can...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: The Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) (No. 2) (Amendment No. 2) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2021 (23 Feb 2021)

Edwin Poots: I thank the Member for giving way. In absolute fairness to Minister Swann and, indeed, the First Minister, they have constantly raised the issue of people travelling through Dublin Airport to access Northern Ireland. They are doing it to access not only Northern Ireland but Great Britain. Many of those people can come from areas where mutations are happening. People can fly from South Africa...

Emma Sheerin: ...a result of Brexit and who have been failed by your Department, Minister, are the Lough Neagh fishing community.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs: Deposit Return Scheme (8 Feb 2021)

Mark Durkan: I thank the Minister and wish him well in his new role. It is certainly no reflection on him when I say that I hope that he is not in post for long. I sincerely wish Edwin Poots a full and swift recovery. As Health Minster, Edwin Poots recognised the value of cross-border, North/South collaboration. Is the Minister aware of any discussions that have taken place with the Irish Government on...
