Northern Ireland Assembly: Assembly Business: Election of Speaker and Deputy Speakers (30 May 2022)

Conor Murphy: ...challenges that they face with the cost of living and in trying to provide support for their families and others. The big issue is something that Mr Kingston got entirely wrong, and I will come to him in a minute. I am not sure who provides the script for the DUP, but its Members all try to spoof about this part of the issue in a kind of Trump-like fashion, which is that, if you tell a lie...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Committee Business: Comptroller and Auditor General: Salary (22 Mar 2022)

Jim Allister: ...my best wishes to Mr Donnelly. He has been in charge for a long time, and he performed his functions with great professionalism and diligence. He certainly will be a hard act to follow. We all wish him well.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Coronavirus Act 2020 (Extension of Powers to Act for the Protection of Public Health) Order (Northern Ireland) 2022 (21 Mar 2022)

Robin Swann: ...a post over the past two years, be that in Northern Ireland or across the jurisdictions, would have reacted. Mr Frew talked about the "Government's approach" and "what the Executive did". I remind him that his party has — had — the most Ministers in that Executive. Many, if not the majority, of the decisions that were taken were therefore made with the full support of his party's...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Finance: Ministerial Cars (21 Mar 2022)

Jim Allister: Does the Minister accept that the ministerial car is a departmental asset? If so, what gives him the right to use it for private business, such as he has done? Does he apologise for such use, given that he heads the Department that has oversight of how civil servants conduct themselves in respect of the rules?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Abortion Services (Safe Access Zones) Bill: Further Consideration Stage (14 Mar 2022)

Clare Bailey: ...to a protected person ... attending protected premises". Nevertheless, I do not see any issue with including it to give additional reassurance on the operation of the clause. Therefore I support Mr Allister's amendment to ensure that there is not a strict liability offence. I thank him for his assistance and willingness to work with me to get agreement on how to bring that forward. I have...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Abortion Services (Safe Access Zones) Bill: Consideration Stage (2 Mar 2022)

Clare Bailey: ...the rationale behind some of the amendments. It is fair to say, however, that no amendments to the Bill would be acceptable to the DUP, because it does not want the Bill to pass, just like Mr Allister, who is upfront about that. Concerns have been raised about the automatic setting of zones and the publication of such zones. It is unfortunate that the Minister is unable to attend today,...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Defamation Bill: Consideration Stage (2 Mar 2022)

Mike Nesbitt: ...control costs of resolving disputes." On that basis, I did not bring forward that amendment. I will go out of sequence and cover another issue raised by the Justice Minister. It is the one that Mr Allister referred to regarding civil actions in the County Court. Mr Allister's argument is, I believe, that it is a deterrent for a potential plaintiff to go to a County Court if their redress...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Ministerial Statements: Project Stratum (1 Mar 2022)

Gordon Lyons: ...in North Antrim who will benefit from this. That is real delivery for the Member, and I am happy to have done that through the money that was secured by my party. I have even better news for him: right now, as a result of my party's intervention, 2,982 households have broadband in Mr Allister's constituency as of today. I hope that that is a cause of great rejoicing in North Antrim and,...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Integrated Education Bill: Further Consideration Stage (24 Feb 2022)

Kellie Armstrong: I thank Mr Allister for that. I point out to him that it says: "In exercising any functions relating to integrated education the Department of Education may consult with—". So it is up to the Department. What I am saying is that, if the Department chooses to consult, it will consult with: "(a) any body appearing to the Department of Education to have as an objective the encouragement or...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Supply Resolution for the Northern Ireland Spring Supplementary Estimates 2021-22 and Supply Resolution for the Northern Ireland Estimates: Vote On Account 2022-23 (22 Feb 2022)

Conor Murphy: ...system, in my view, prevents us from achieving a lot of that, and the Member's party is wedded to the idea of academic selection, which is a negative contribution to that. That is something for him to examine, perhaps, in the time ahead. Pam Cameron, of course, came in to bat for the party. In fairness to her, she did a valiant job. On the basis of the January monitoring discussions, I had...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Assembly Business: Christopher Stalford MLA (21 Feb 2022)

Jim Allister: ...I think that it was his first job after university — in my Belfast office for two to three years when I was an MEP. It was evident to me that he had the ability and the talent that would make him the politician that he was. Although our political perspectives diverged, I am pleased to say that we retained a friendship and a respect that lasted down all those years. I think back to...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Justice (Sexual Offences and Trafficking Victims) Bill: Consideration Stage (15 Feb 2022)

Jim Allister: ...of course, are a signatory to the European Convention on Human Rights. What does it have to say? It says: "In the determination of his civil rights and obligations or of any criminal charge against him, everyone is entitled to a fair and public hearing". It does not say, "everyone except those charged with a heinous sex crime". It says: "everyone is entitled to a fair and public hearing...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Committee Business: Ad Hoc Committee on a Bill of Rights: Report (14 Feb 2022)

John O'Dowd: ...Amnesty International to issue a call for Professor Harvey to be protected in the face of a sustained campaign of hostility that has, in the words of Amnesty International: "sought to intimidate him and undermine his academic standing". Those behind the slurs and the discrimination against Professor Harvey cannot wash their hands of that. As my colleague Carál said, we will return to...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Adoption and Children Bill: Consideration Stage (14 Feb 2022)

Robin Swann: ...and the booster doses. I thank Members for their contributions to the debate on the first group of amendments, which has focused mostly on the technical and consequential issues. In response to Mr Allister's earlier point of order — I am not sure whether he is in the Chamber — I can assure him that I would rather be in the Chamber in person. If any Member needs clarity on any point...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Adoption and Children Bill: Consideration Stage (14 Feb 2022)

Jim Allister: ...of order, Mr Deputy Speaker. I seek clarification that is more likely to be relevant when the Minister comes to sum up. The Minister is addressing us remotely: is there a facility to intervene on him?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: The draft Single Use Carrier Bags Charge (Amendment and Revocation) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2022 (7 Feb 2022)

Edwin Poots: ...tax. It would be good news if that were the case. Mrs Barton thought that more money might come in. The truth is that we do not know. I anticipate that fewer bags will be acquired, albeit, as Mr Allister points out, the bags will be five times as expensive. If that leads to an 80% reduction, we will bring in a similar amount of money. If it leads to a greater reduction, we will bring in...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Integrated Education Bill: Consideration Stage (18 Jan 2022)

Robin Newton: ...'s amendment No 33 and the Minister's proposed new clause 7A in amendment No 29. I have not agreed with very much that the Chair of the Committee has said over the past 24 hours, but I agree with him that a huge amount of concern about clauses 7 and 8 was expressed in Committee at meetings in both closed and open session. Initially, when the Bill was presented, every new school was...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Integrated Education Bill: Consideration Stage (18 Jan 2022)

Kellie Armstrong: I thank the Member for giving way. As part of the work that I have done over the years on the Bill, I have considered how it works, especially from primary to post-primary schools. To assure him, when I spoke to many parents, two sectoral bodies and two different parts of the education landscape, it was confirmed that parents put down their preferences on their transfer papers. If someone has...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Integrated Education Bill: Consideration Stage (17 Jan 2022)

Kellie Armstrong: I do not know, Mr Allister. I would say that special educational needs would be one area where children need to be provided with places. I would say that the fact that children need to be educated in Northern Ireland means that they are provided with a school place. I am asking that, for integrated education, there will be an assessment of need, that that demand will be considered through a...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Members' Statements: Brexit: Loss of EU Funding (17 Jan 2022)

Matthew O'Toole: ...university fees and reducing the number of university places, because it does not have the money to fund the higher education system because of Brexit [Interruption.] I hear chuntering from Mr Allister to my left; he should not say a word, given the failures for young people. This is a failure by the Brexiteers but, specifically, the Democratic Unionist Party, which runs that Department...
