Northern Ireland Assembly: Committee Business: Amend Standing Order 64 (19 Jan 2009)

Lord Maurice Morrow: I beg to move In Standing Order 64, delete “all” and insert — “64. MATTERS OF JOINT CONCERN: OPTIONS AVAILABLE TO COMMITTEES Where a matter may be of concern to two or more committees (“the relevant committees”) it may be dealt with by – (a) one of the relevant committees disposing of it, in accordance with Standing Order 64A; (b) the relevant committees sitting concurrently, in...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Committee Business: Amend Standing Order 64 (19 Jan 2009)

Lord Maurice Morrow: I do not wish to add to what has been said. I thank Members for their support. I believe that this will be a very useful amendment to our Standing Orders, and I commend it to the House. I also wish to record my appreciation, as Chairperson, to the Committee Clerk and to those who have assisted the Committee.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members’ Business: Shared Future (27 Jan 2009)

Lord Maurice Morrow: I thank the Member for giving way. I was interested to hear her refer to the rights of every Irish citizen and say that debates must happen on our streets. Does the Member accept that there are those who do not consider themselves to be Irish citizens? Furthermore, the history books tell us that when partition occurred in Ireland, 12% of the population in what is now the Irish Republic were...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members’ Business: Shared Future (27 Jan 2009)

Lord Maurice Morrow: On a point of order, Mr Deputy Speaker. Is it not convention that when the House divides, Members are supposed to go through the Lobbies? Are you satisfied that every Member who voted on the motion did so?

Northern Ireland Assembly: private members’ business: Consultative Group on the Past (2 Feb 2009)

Lord Maurice Morrow: It has been said that this is the era when right is made to look wrong and wrong is made to look right. A cursory glance at the report of the Consultative Group on the Past comes close to confirming that view. It has opened up many wounds again, in particular for those victims and survivors who had stoically tried to carry on with life as best they could, and whose dignity and forbearance has...

Northern Ireland: Consultative Group on the Past — Question (5 Feb 2009)

Lord Morrow: My Lords, does the Minister accept that one of the many failings of this report is its inability to differentiate the guilty and the innocent?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Assembly Business (9 Feb 2009)

Lord Maurice Morrow: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. It may be useful for the House, and its Members, if some directive were to be provided. I listened carefully to you saying that you have written to Mr Adams. Did Mr McCausland receive the same facility? Was a letter sent to him?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Assembly Business (9 Feb 2009)

Lord Maurice Morrow: On a point of order, Mr Speaker.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Assembly Business (9 Feb 2009)

Lord Maurice Morrow: It is a separate point of order.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Assembly Business (9 Feb 2009)

Lord Maurice Morrow: As Chief Whip of the DUP, I want to state that we do feel that we are being victimised.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members’ Business: North/South Ministerial Council (9 Feb 2009)

Lord Maurice Morrow: On a point of order, Mr Deputy Speaker. Will the Member establish whether it was Sinn Féin or the SDLP that submitted the petition of concern?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members’ Business: North/South Ministerial Council (9 Feb 2009)

Lord Maurice Morrow: On a point of order, Mr Deputy Speaker. In relation to Mrs Kelly’s remark, you were good enough to clarify that the petition of concern does not cover the proposed amendment. Does it cover the motion as amended?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members’ Business: North/South Ministerial Council (9 Feb 2009)

Lord Maurice Morrow: I support the motion and the amendment. Much has been said in the debate, but little of it was relevant. I take issue with John O’Dowd, who said that the debate was a waste of time. I regard it as anything but that; it has been a good and a useful debate that has put down markers for the future. Alex Atwood, to his credit, has caught on to the fact that there will be changes in the future....

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members’ Business: North/South Ministerial Council (9 Feb 2009)

Lord Maurice Morrow: Yes; and I would say to Mr Attwood: just watch this space. I know that you have told Sinn Féin that it must get up very early in the morning to be ahead of the DUP. Therefore, rise early in the morning and you will see what will happen in the not-too-distant future. As a matter of fact —

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members’ Business: North/South Ministerial Council (9 Feb 2009)

Lord Maurice Morrow: I shall in a minute. As a matter of fact, during a previous debate, I said that Sinn Féin should sleep with one eye open because the DUP will be bringing forward proposals.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members’ Business: North/South Ministerial Council (9 Feb 2009)

Lord Maurice Morrow: Yes, I have the Good Friday Agree­ment, which was well spotted by Barry McElduff. He noticed someone bringing it into the Chamber, which was extraordinary work by him. Despite its name being printed all over it, he deducted that I had the Belfast Agreement in my hand. So, well done. The DUP’s hand is not in the Belfast Agreement; that is not our work. Therefore, we have a responsibility to...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members’ Business: North/South Ministerial Council (9 Feb 2009)

Lord Maurice Morrow: Mr McFarland misses the point. The point is that Mr Elliott said that we were setting up a Civic Forum, but the Ulster Unionist Party had already made that provision in its Belfast Agreement. The authors of that great piece of work — [Interruption.] Mr McFarland is now trying to mix it a bit. The provision was made in his party’s Belfast Agreement and had nothing to do with the DUP. He...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members’ Business: North/South Ministerial Council (9 Feb 2009)

Lord Maurice Morrow: Dolores Kelly said that it was unfortunate that Ireland was ever divided.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members’ Business: Western Health and Social Care Trust (10 Feb 2009)

Lord Maurice Morrow: I shall also begin by asking the Minister questions, and I hope that he will answer them in his response to the debate. Did the other trusts have any debt? What happened when the changeover occurred? The Western Trust has inherited a debt of £3·3 million, but I understand that other trusts had debts but were given a clean sheet. I hope that the Minister will answer my next question: if...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members’ Business: Western Health and Social Care Trust (10 Feb 2009)

Lord Maurice Morrow: Yes; I will give way in a moment or two. In fairness to Ms Anderson’s party colleague, Mrs McGill, she realised that fact and she tried to address the issues raised by the motion.
