Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Nurture Provision (15 Nov 2016)

Lord Maurice Morrow: I beg to move That this Assembly welcomes the report by the Centre for Evidence and Social Innovation at Queen’s University Belfast, entitled 'The Impact and Cost Effectiveness of Nurture Groups in Primary Schools in Northern Ireland'; welcomes the commitment of the Minister of Education to continuing to fund the 32 nurture units across Northern Ireland; and calls on the Minister of...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Middletown Centre for Autism (15 Nov 2016)

Lord Maurice Morrow: Thank you, Mr Speaker, but I did not realise that I was down to speak on this, but, having been called on, I will take the opportunity to say something. I was going to make an intervention when Mr McElduff was speaking, but I thought better of it. Now that you have called me, I have the opportunity to put the question to the Minister directly. The Middletown centre is delivering and,...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Middletown Centre for Autism (15 Nov 2016)

Lord Maurice Morrow: Thank you. The fact that it was on the border was the problem for some of us. We believe that the provision is basically for the people of Northern Ireland. I understand that there are those from the other side of the border who use it, but that raises another question: who is financing it? If it is as you say, is it financed both by the Irish Republic and Northern Ireland? No doubt the...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Middletown Centre for Autism (15 Nov 2016)

Lord Maurice Morrow: Yes, I thought I said that. We will not be voting for the motion because we believe that too many things have been left out of it and it does attack the Minister to some degree, although he is well used to that and it would be like water off a duck's back. That would not annoy him — not the bit that annoys us. We believe that the motion misses the mark. I will stop there, Mr Speaker.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Justice: Hydebank Wood Secure College (14 Nov 2016)

Lord Maurice Morrow: Minister, it has been said numerous times in the House that mental health problems are very prevalent within prisons. If that is the case, can you give any indication to the House how prevalent it is and what you are doing to tackle that particular issue in the future? Do you believe that there are many prisoners in prison who should not be there?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Ending All Forms of Paramilitarism (8 Nov 2016)

Lord Maurice Morrow: Will the Member give way?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Ending All Forms of Paramilitarism (8 Nov 2016)

Lord Maurice Morrow: I thank the Member for giving way. This is a point that I tried to make earlier, but no one was in the mood to give way. When, for instance, the SDLP and Sinn Féin weld to demand that children's play parks be named after terrorists, does that help the situation? What sort of message does that send out to the law-abiding community?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Addressing the Past (7 Nov 2016)

Lord Maurice Morrow: I think that the Member comes very close to the real issue here. There are too many — and I suspect that there are more on the other side of the House than on this side — who seem to think that everybody who lost their life was a victim. Some were victims of their own despicable behaviour. I challenge the SDLP to tell us today whether it is saying to us that everybody who died in the...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Education Services: Partnership Working (25 Oct 2016)

Lord Maurice Morrow: I do not think there is anyone in the House today who will oppose the motion, although we will wait and see. It seems to be a day of unity, with us all singing and dancing from the same hymn sheet. I think this follows on in that mode. I do not think anyone would oppose any steps or procedures that help our children and young people achieve their full potential, so we will certainly not...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Education Services: Partnership Working (25 Oct 2016)

Lord Maurice Morrow: I heard what you said, Principal Deputy Speaker, and I suspect that you are asking me to stop. There is much more I would like to and could say, but we will support the motion in principle.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Communities: Market Square, Dungannon (24 Oct 2016)

Lord Maurice Morrow: 3. Lord Morrow asked the Minister for Communities for his assessment of the public realm scheme in Dungannon's Market Square. (AQO 532/16-21)

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Communities: Market Square, Dungannon (24 Oct 2016)

Lord Maurice Morrow: I thank the Minister for that very comprehensive reply. He might have answered my supplementary in it. We will have a go anyway. The scheme that is being done in Market Square has many attributes. There are one or two deficiencies, however, not least the traffic-flow problems and pedestrian safety. Minister, as you intimated, the council now proposes to do further enhancement of the...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Domestic Abuse, Rape and Sexual Crime (17 Oct 2016)

Lord Maurice Morrow: I must say that I have listened to some very interesting comments from right around the House today. I was particularly struck by Doug Beattie, not so much by what he said as by the man who said it. Doug Beattie was a professional soldier, so he has come through a hard school and been in a war zone. It takes a lot of courage to do that. I listened very intently to him today, and he proved...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Domestic Abuse, Rape and Sexual Crime (17 Oct 2016)

Lord Maurice Morrow: I heard recently about a case in which a female stabbed her husband or partner, and he broke her jaw in return. What happens when that goes to court? I suspect that that is a 50:50 and will not travel anywhere. I do not believe that domestic violence always comes from one side, the male. It also comes from females, no disrespect to them, but maybe the prevalent side is the male side. I...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Ministerial Statement: Sustainable Schools Policy and Area Planning (17 Oct 2016)

Lord Maurice Morrow: I am sure that the Minister will agree that parental choice is very important. How do you propose to safeguard that going forward?
