Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: The Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) (No. 2) (Amendment No. 5) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2020 (19 Oct 2020)

Jim Allister: ...his party endorsed, is quite inappropriate. Maybe a little embarrassing. Maybe that is why, today, we have had but one token speech from the DUP Benches on that issue. Where are the defenders of Edwin Poots? We are told in press briefings that, apparently, it was not a solo run. I suspect that that is probably right. If it was not a solo run, he is looking very solo tonight in this debate....

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Supply Resolution for the Northern Ireland Main Estimates 2020-21 and Supply Resolution for the Northern Ireland Estimates 2016-17 Statement of Excesses (19 Oct 2020)

Pat Sheehan: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. I draw the Speaker's attention to the remarks made by the AERA Minister, Edwin Poots, on Friday, when he accused the nationalist/Catholic community of having spread this virus. He also called into question the collective decision-making of the Executive. Those comments were unbecoming of any Executive Minister, and I ask the Speaker to investigate the remarks...

Fisheries Bill [Lords]: New Clause 8 - Agency arrangements between sea fish licensing authorities (13 Oct 2020)

Carla Lockhart: ...temptation to begin this new era by prescribing draconian solutions across the board, as represented by remote electronic monitoring. On 29 September, the Fisheries Minister in Northern Ireland, Edwin Poots MLA, told the Assembly that “it is important that we have that devolved flexibility to choose from the range of management tools and measures, and pick those that are best suited to...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs: Traffic Blockages: Post-Brexit Ports (12 Oct 2020)

Edwin Poots: I have made it clear, certainly for the Northern Ireland ports, that we are not to have any blockages. That is something that we have fought for. Provided that the European Union does not behave in a difficult way, most people in Northern Ireland will not notice any checks that are happening because it will, perhaps, be one lorry per boat that is checked. That check should last for about an...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs: Rural Communities: Funding Programmes (12 Oct 2020)

Edwin Poots: My officials have reviewed some of the processes around the current programme and have started to revise certain procedures to reduce red tape and make the application process more efficient, within the context of 'Managing Public Money' and the audit responsibilities that come with that. It is something that I continue to drive home to them. There is a necessity to make things as practical...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs: Landfill (12 Oct 2020)

Edwin Poots: My Department has a long history of working with local councils to help them make sure that as many of our resources as possible are diverted from landfill. By following the principles of the waste hierarchy, DAERA has undertaken a number of initiatives involving local councils to prevent waste from being generated in the first instance, as part of the waste prevention programme. Reuse...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs: EU Funding Replacement (12 Oct 2020)

Edwin Poots: Considerable work has been going on. The UK Government will be providing replacement funding. It has been indicated throughout — through the Conservative Party manifesto — that they will supply the same funding as is currently supplied. It is for us to hold them to that and ensure that that is the case. That has been the case. COVID-19, however, is inflicting huge damage on the Treasury....

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs: Keep Northern Ireland Beautiful (12 Oct 2020)

Edwin Poots: I remember, when I was on the council — Mr Butler would have been young at the time, and I suppose that I was relatively young at that stage — helping to secure funding for the Castle Gardens project. It is a fantastic project. The Lisburn and Castlereagh parks team have been exemplary over the years. Some of their floral tributes have been recognised at a national and, indeed, an...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs: Supertrawlers (12 Oct 2020)

Edwin Poots: Well, they should not be entering our waters. In most instances, it is our fishing boats and, indeed, Irish fishing boats that are out there. Supertrawlers tend not to come into the Irish Box so much because of the nature of the fishing. There are more nephrops there, and it does not lend itself to the supertrawlers that exist on the west of Ireland, for example, or in the North Sea. I should...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs: Glenelly Valley: Landslides (12 Oct 2020)

Edwin Poots: I recognise the desperately difficult circumstances that the people in Glenelly found themselves in as a consequence of the flooding that took place, resulting in landslides and damage to their land. The debris had to be cleared with diggers, and fences were taken out. I have spoken to my officials on the matter. As I have indicated before, I will have to take a ministerial direction on the...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs: Waste Disposal: Non-recyclable Goods (12 Oct 2020)

Edwin Poots: First, I must state that the best way to deal with our waste is to prevent it being created in the first place. Following the principles of the waste hierarchy, where waste cannot be prevented, resources should be reused; and, where resources cannot be reused, we seek to produce a high quality recyclate, which, where possible, is put back into Northern Ireland’s economy. After all that, it...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs: Supply Chains: Post-Brexit (12 Oct 2020)

Edwin Poots: In common with the UK Government, I am clear that the Northern Ireland protocol needs to be implemented in a way that minimises any frictions on the flow of agri-food trade and does not increase costs for our businesses and people living in Northern Ireland. I am working on the assumption that, if the EU and United Kingdom Government are committed to minimising friction on trade, it is...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs: Irish Sea Border Infrastructure: Proposals (12 Oct 2020)

Edwin Poots: As the Member will be aware, an application for a proposed certificate of lawful use or development (CLUD) was submitted to Mid and East Antrim Borough Council on 15 September 2020. The application was submitted to confirm that the proposed development for the Northern Ireland point of entry at Larne port falls within permitted development rights, as set out in the Planning (General Permitted...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs: Food Safety Standards: US Trade Deal (12 Oct 2020)

Edwin Poots: I have been very clear that all trade agreements, including one with the United States of America, must uphold the current high standards for food safety in the UK and that all imported products must meet those standards. I have, therefore, written to the DEFRA Secretary of State on the matter and will continue to make representations as the negotiations progress. I have received a response...

Leaving the EU — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (5 Oct 2020)

Allan Dorans: ...their accounts will be closed on 31 December unless there is agreement. Border control posts at Northern Ireland ports will almost certainly not be ready in time, according to Stormont Minister Edwin Poots. Make UK estimates that UK firms will have to complete 275 million customer forms, up from 55 million, at a cost that HMRC has estimated at £15 billion a year. I strongly believe that...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Fisheries Bill: Legislative Consent Motion (29 Sep 2020)

Edwin Poots: — yes, I will in a moment — that the Irish fishing fleet can continue to fish in our waters and that our people can still go down to Dundalk Bay. Mr Coveney cannot do anything on that because he does not have the power to do that. He has given that power to the European Union and we are getting that power back.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Fisheries Bill: Legislative Consent Motion (29 Sep 2020)

Edwin Poots: I beg to move That this Assembly endorses the principle of the extension to Northern Ireland of the Fisheries Bill, as introduced in the House of Lords on 29 January 2020, and consents to the Fisheries Bill being taken forward by the Westminster Parliament.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs: Puppy Sales: Coronavirus Pandemic (22 Sep 2020)

Edwin Poots: A range of Departments and, indeed, local government have a significant role to play in the registration of dogs, licensing and all of that. It is critical that each of the Departments that have a role plays that role to ensure that we identify and address any issues. We have issues with people who produce pups in less than desirable conditions. Where that is brought to our attention in the...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs: Ammonia Emissions (22 Sep 2020)

Edwin Poots: I am happy to work with the farming community and other parties on how we bring this forward. Doing nothing is not an option. We need to reduce the amount of ammonia that is currently going into the environment in Northern Ireland. We also want to encourage people to be able to have a business that will support their families. I believe that both are achievable. I will work with the...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs: SPS Checks: Points of Entry (22 Sep 2020)

Edwin Poots: A good question is whether everybody is prepared to do that, because, at this stage, one of the issues outstanding relates to IT. There seems to be an issue with an IT system that has been used in the UK for many years and the EU's non-acceptance of it, which will almost certainly ensure that we are not operationally ready. There is quite a number of issues where that is a live problem.
