Northern Ireland Assembly: Assembly Business: Exclusion of Minister from Office under Section 30 of the Northern Ireland Act 1998 (19 Dec 2016)

Lord Maurice Morrow: Mr Allen, here are some facts for you: had you been in the House earlier today —

Northern Ireland Assembly: Assembly Business: Exclusion of Minister from Office under Section 30 of the Northern Ireland Act 1998 (19 Dec 2016)

Lord Maurice Morrow: I forgot. I say to Mr Allen that the facts are these: the First Minister stood at the Dispatch Box this morning and explained and outlined in graphic detail how she was dealing with the issue, but Mr Allen was bound — [Interruption.] You were not here to hear it. [Interruption.] You ran away.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Assembly Business: Exclusion of Minister from Office under Section 30 of the Northern Ireland Act 1998 (19 Dec 2016)

Lord Maurice Morrow: I understand what you say, but I hope that Members will give me the courtesy of being heard. I suspect that they do not like what they are hearing. Do you know something? You are going to hear it anyway. Let us turn to Mr Nesbitt —

Northern Ireland Assembly: Assembly Business: Exclusion of Minister from Office under Section 30 of the Northern Ireland Act 1998 (19 Dec 2016)

Lord Maurice Morrow: Yes, of course. Mr Nesbitt now has the unenviable job of getting the monkey off his back, and the monkey is this: he was the great white hope for the Ulster Unionist Party. The Ulster Unionist Party had dominated the political scene for so long, and it wheeled in this TV kid and said, "This is the boy who will save us". What happened? He led his party to the lowest vote in its history....

Northern Ireland Assembly: Assembly Business: Exclusion of Minister from Office under Section 30 of the Northern Ireland Act 1998 (19 Dec 2016)

Lord Maurice Morrow: Then, we turn to the SDLP. They, too, had a catastrophic election result under their young leader, the young pretender who tells his party that they will lead, but they are sinking desperately. They sink so low that they will now even name children's play parks after terrorists so that they can court support from Sinn Féin supporters, and it does not work. They all sit with blushed faces...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Assembly Business: Exclusion of Minister from Office under Section 30 of the Northern Ireland Act 1998 (19 Dec 2016)

Lord Maurice Morrow: — and tell us that they would not do this. We know the fiasco that Mr Ford made of the policing depot in Cookstown. Where is our policing depot today? He spent and squandered millions of pounds, and we heard nothing from him.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Ministerial Statement: Renewable Heat Incentive Scheme (19 Dec 2016)

Lord Maurice Morrow: I, too, thank the First Minister for her very comprehensive statement. It is most regrettable that those who have barked and shouted the most about the issue, when there was an opportunity for them to learn some facts around it, said, "We are not interested in the facts", and just walked out. They ran away. The First Minister is to be congratulated on her comprehensive report. There has...

Digital Economy Bill - Second Reading (13 Dec 2016)

Lord Morrow: My Lords, I welcome Part 3 of the Bill. Government data reveal that in May 2015 there were 1.4 million unique visitors under the age of 18 to pornographic sites from desktop computers. These visits equate to 20% of all under-18s and 13% of children aged between six and 14. This is deeply disturbing, especially as, according to the latest Ofcom research, most children and young people access...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Schools: Maintenance Budget (6 Dec 2016)

Lord Maurice Morrow: My question is not dissimilar from the one that Mrs Dobson asked. Does the Minister accept that there is merit in considering delegating funding to schools for their maintenance projects? Surely there is some merit in that. Would he be prepared to consider that in future?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs: Lough Foyle/Carlingford Lough (5 Dec 2016)

Lord Maurice Morrow: 7. Lord Morrow asked the Minister of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs to outline the current ownership of both Lough Foyle and Carlingford lough. (AQO 822/16-21)

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs: Lough Foyle/Carlingford Lough (5 Dec 2016)

Lord Maurice Morrow: I thank the Minister for her answer. I listened to what she said, and she related that the situation is causing difficulties with aquaculture licensing. To what extent is she or her Department being kept abreast of what is happening? Surely the hiatus is causing problems for the sensible running of her Department in relation to what we are speaking about.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Question for Urgent Oral Answer: Schools: Proposed Industrial Action by the NASUWT (22 Nov 2016)

Lord Maurice Morrow: Has the Minister had any feedback from principals and chairs of boards of governors re the impact of the industrial action that has been ongoing since 2011 on children and educational attainment?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Educational Programmes: EU Funding (22 Nov 2016)

Lord Maurice Morrow: Brexit is now blamed for every negative in society, so I suspect that the next thing that it will be blamed for is the weather. What will the impact of Brexit be on education in Northern Ireland?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Ministerial Statements: Rating Policy (22 Nov 2016)

Lord Maurice Morrow: In the early part of his statement, the Minister said: "Today, I propose a groundbreaking package of measures aimed at modernising the domestic and commercial elements of the rating system". He then proceeded to outline a list of fairly punitive measures against those who pay their rates: has he anything new to say about those who do not?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Opposition Business: Rural Schools: Draft Strategic Area Plan (21 Nov 2016)

Lord Maurice Morrow: I beg to move amendment No 1: Leave out all after "Assembly" and insert "notes the publication of the Education Authority’s 'Providing Pathways Draft Strategic Area Plan for School Provision 2017-2020'; acknowledges the concerns that there will be over the proposals, particularly in rural areas; believes that every pupil, regardless of whether they live in a rural or an urban area, should...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Opposition Business: Rural Schools: Draft Strategic Area Plan (21 Nov 2016)

Lord Maurice Morrow: Unfortunately, inconsistencies are not a new phenomenon in the House. I understand clearly what the Member has said, and I thank him for it. I am encouraged that Minister Weir has visited many of our schools since he took up his post and will have witnessed at first hand the superb job that principals, teachers and others do. All of them take pride in their schools and give of their best to...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Economy: Broadband: Fermanagh and South Tyrone (21 Nov 2016)

Lord Maurice Morrow: Have the black spots and gaps in broadband provision in Fermanagh and South Tyrone been identified? Will the Minister give his reaction to the proposed changes by the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA)?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Assembly Business (15 Nov 2016)

Lord Maurice Morrow: Further to that point of order, Mr Deputy Speaker, is it in order for a Member to rise on a point of information?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Area Planning: Fermanagh and South Tyrone (15 Nov 2016)

Lord Maurice Morrow: I thank the Minister for his answers so far. Could he tell the House what will happen to the area plan at the end of the consultation period?
