Northern Ireland Assembly: Matter of the Day: Condemnation of Threats to Workers at Border Control Posts (2 Feb 2021)

John Blair: Before I say anything about the Matter of the Day, I add my support to that expressed for Edwin Poots and send him every good wish for a full recovery. I echo the words of others who have said that all threats to staff are serious. That includes threats to Members of this House and their staff. I want to make it clear that I stand with Kellie Armstrong, Stephen Farry and their staff in that...

Friend the Member for Old Bexley and Sidcup (James Brokenshire), the former Secretary of State for Northern Ireland, and to Minister Edwin Poots from the Northern Ireland Executive for a full and speedy recovery for both of them. I would also like to send best wishes to President-elect Joe Biden on the inauguration later...

Northern Ireland: Payment Scheme for Victims of the Troubles (20 Jan 2021)

Louise Haigh: May I join the Secretary of State in sending the best wishes of the whole House to the former Secretary of State and to the Minister, Edwin Poots? Victims of the troubles have been badly treated in the last year in particular and are fast losing confidence in whether we will all deliver on the promises we made to them in this House. The troubles pension was legislated for in Westminster, it...

Northern Ireland: “New Decade, New Approach” Deal (20 Jan 2021)

Jeffrey M. Donaldson: I echo the Secretary of State’s comments in relation to the former Secretary of State, the right hon. Member for Old Bexley and Sidcup (James Brokenshire), and my constituency colleague, Edwin Poots. Our thoughts and prayers are with them both. Paragraph 11 of annex A of the “New Decade, New Approach” document commits the UK Government to negotiating flexible arrangements for trade...

Northern Ireland: Northern Ireland Protocol (20 Jan 2021)

Claire Hanna: I thank the Secretary of State for his words about Edwin Poots. Everybody here is rooting for the Minister in his battle. Has the Secretary of State given any thought to structures he can use to engage with the Irish Government on the protocol and other relevant issues now that they are not meeting within EU frameworks? Specifically, does he think the British-Irish Council or the...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Ministerial Statement: North/South Ministerial Council: Agriculture (19 Jan 2021)

Edwin Poots: The Member referred to animal waste moving across the border, and that is an entirely legitimate act. I would refer to it as animal nutrients, because it can provide nutrients for the soil. If we have an excess of nutrients, and the Republic of Ireland does not have enough, it is entirely reasonable to export those nutrients to the Republic of Ireland. Ultimately, as we move forward, I would...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs: Ports: DAERA Support — Ammonia Action Plan: Update (18 Jan 2021)

Edwin Poots: We have done considerable work in looking at the ammonia action plan. We are hopeful that we can make a real difference in dealing with the issue of ammonia. It is high in Northern Ireland, given the fact that we have high livestock numbers for the square miles that exist in Northern Ireland. That is not a bad thing, because it creates employment for around 100,000 people and brings £5...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs: Ports: DAERA Support — Pet Passports (18 Jan 2021)

Edwin Poots: I thank the Member for his question. Pet travel is a vexed issue. This just should not be happening. I consider it cruel to put pets through the administering of unnecessary medication. Forcing pet owners to get a rabies or tapeworm vaccination when neither disease exists in the British Isles should not be happening. We have a common travel area for the people of the British Isles, and, in my...

Edwin Poots: Pesticides are governed by the European Union, and we will still be under those regulations.

In Northern Ireland, we will seek to comply with the regulations that come from that.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs: Ports: DAERA Support — Importing Goods: Problems (18 Jan 2021)

Edwin Poots: The problems for supermarkets have not yet taken full effect because they kick in on 1 April. The supermarkets have indicated to us that it is critical that they do not face a cliff edge on 31 March. We had a cliff edge on 31 December, but it will be much more significant on 31 March if there is no change to the current proposals. Last week, I outlined to some extent the consequences of our...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs: Ports: DAERA Support — Blue Algae (18 Jan 2021)

Edwin Poots: That is a tricky one, and I am not sure what measures we can take to overcome it. I do not have it in these notes, but I had a previous note about the blue algae in Castlewellan lake, and it is a challenging issue. Officials are looking at it and have been working with people who have considerable knowledge about such matters to tackle the issue.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs: Ports: DAERA Support — UK-EU Trade and Cooperation Agreement (18 Jan 2021)

Edwin Poots: From 2.00 pm to 2.30 pm, I had a meeting with Minister Prentis and her team from the United Kingdom Government, and we discussed those very issues. We expressed our disappointment, which she agreed with, with the actual outcome, and we raised the issue of the £100 million. We also raised the issue of the number of fish that we catch outside of the Irish Sea. A considerable amount of the...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs: Ports: DAERA Support — Levelling Up Fund (18 Jan 2021)

Edwin Poots: The question is more appropriate for the Minister of Finance. However, I am aware that, as part of the spending review announced on 25 November 2020, the UK Government launched a new levelling up fund worth £4 billion for England. It will also attract up to £0·8 billion for Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. Funding to the Northern Ireland Executive will be in line with the Barnett...

Edwin Poots: With your permission, Mr Deputy Speaker, I will take questions 1 and 13 together. My Department has made every effort to prepare traders and haulage businesses for implementing the new processes that are required to move goods from Great Britain to Northern Ireland. In November and December, the Department held a series of trader information seminars, during which presentations were made to a...

Northern Ireland Protocol: Disruption to Trade (13 Jan 2021)

Michael Gove: ...previous career, when he served with such distinction. The infrastructure and the individuals are in place to ensure the smooth operation of the protocol as far as possible. In particular I thank Edwin Poots, the Minister of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs in the Northern Ireland Executive who, notwithstanding his own understandable personal reservations about the protocol, has...
