Northern Ireland Assembly: Assembly Business: Mr Francie Brolly (10 Feb 2020)

Paul Givan: I did not have the opportunity to be in the Assembly when Francie Brolly was an MLA. He left at the start of 2010 and I joined later that year, but I did get to know Francie in a different sphere. Francie Brolly, yes, was a committed republican, but he was a committed republican who held, most importantly to him, the words of the 1916 proclamation of independence: "cherishing all the children...

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Billy McNeill MBE (20 May 2019)

David Linden: ...when, unfortunately, Celtic defeated the Diamonds 3-1 at Hampden Park. Following the match, Billy announced his retirement from playing football. It was his 822nd and last appearance for Celtic. Remarkably, in a career spanning so many years, he was never substituted, which is a tremendous achievement for any player. I cannot recall any other player who made that many appearances without...

Jeremy Lefroy: ...to deal with this threat. If this happens again at Heathrow or other major airports, we will see considerable disruption to people’s lives and losses to the economy.

Member for Blackpool South are clearly a cause for...

Business of the House (14 Jun 2018)

Valerie Vaz: ...of carers to stay with people with dementia. Nicci Gerrard’s father, Dr John Gerrard, had dementia; his family faced restricted visiting hours and he deteriorated. Together with Julia Jones and Francis Wheen, they presented the chief nursing officer for England with a book of pledges by NHS acute trusts that allowed unrestricted visiting hours. It reminds me of the words of Margaret...

Jeffrey M. Donaldson: ..., a similar view to the DUP. This includes both Unionists and nationalists in Northern Ireland, and people of all faiths and none.

Some of the best proponents of the pro-life position in Northern Ireland have come from the republican tradition,...

Sharon Hodgson: ...had huge ambitions, but he never would have imagined all those years ago the successes we have had in medicine because of the development of the NHS. I will talk about a few of them now. In 1952, Francis Crick, a British scientist, and James Watson, an American student, made one of the most important scientific breakthroughs of the 20th century, when they discovered the molecular structure...

Scottish Parliament: Historical Sexual Offences (Pardons and Disregards) (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (18 Apr 2018)

Christina McKelvie: ...history books some time ago. However, we know that that is not true. Indeed, it is worth reminding ourselves of just how recently such laws still existed. The 19th century American inventor Joseph Francis, who designed the forerunner of the modern lifeboat, once remarked: “As long as society is anti-gay, then it will seem like being gay is anti-social.” Such progressive views were rare...

Bills Presented: Vote 100 and International Women’s Day (8 Mar 2018)

Diana R. Johnson: .... Many claim the strike was led by a more establishment figure, Annie Besant, who I think people would describe as the Polly Toynbee of her day.

Baroness Ludford: ...1, because you cannot do things like that just on your own. The Norway/Iceland agreement with the EU is often cited as a prototype, but that took years to negotiate and is still not in force. Sir Francis Jacobs, former advocate-general of the court, told the committee that that was less than satisfactory and may be difficult to attain. The EFTA Court has been mentioned but, notably, its...

Scottish Parliament: Single-use Plastics (7 Feb 2018)

Alex Rowley: ...the recent World Economic Forum in Davos stated—incredibly—that, by 2050, the amount of plastic in the ocean will outweigh fish. It is just incredible that the human race would do that. As Pope Francis said: “What kind of world do we want to leave to those who come after us”? He went on to say: “May the relationship between man and nature not be driven by greed, to manipulate and...

It marked the beginning of a massive investment by the federal Government in research, and saw the creation of DARPA, the NIH and other government research bodies. You need look no further than the...

Scottish Parliament: Time for Reflection (7 Nov 2017)

...of the Scottish Parliament: thank you for allowing to me to be with you this afternoon.
