Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Domestic Violence: Court Listings (20 Sep 2016)

Lord Maurice Morrow: I have been asking questions on the issue as far back as June 2011, when I asked the then Minister two questions. In 2015, I asked him a similar question to the previous ones. I am tempted to ask the Minister the same question again, because the then Minister said then that he noted: "a positive evaluation of these arrangements has recently been completed which recommends that these...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Domestic Violence: Court Listings (20 Sep 2016)

Lord Maurice Morrow: Yes. I thought that you would say that. How long will an evaluation of this take? We are now at nearly six years. Do we have to wait another six?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Japanese Knotweed (20 Sep 2016)

Lord Maurice Morrow: At the outset, I thank everyone who took part in the debate. It has come across very clearly that there is an issue that needs to be tackled; that has been acknowledged right around the House today. I also want to thank the Minister for coming here today, taking part in the debate, listening to the comments of all the Members and, of course, speaking on the issue. This is not the first time...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: 'A Vision for Northern Ireland outside the EU' (19 Sep 2016)

Lord Maurice Morrow: I think that the Member is slightly confused: I said no such thing. What I said, in addressing an issue that the Ulster Unionists were putting forward, was that the majority of unionists who were voting — 85% — voted to leave the EU. I have a high regard for the Member, but she is now treading very close to what we have come to expect from those who voted "Remain". They want to talk...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: 'A Vision for Northern Ireland outside the EU' (19 Sep 2016)

Lord Maurice Morrow: I thank the Member for giving way. I am sure that, in acknowledging all those who advocate what he advocates, he will be quick to mention that 85% of unionists voted against staying in the European Union. No doubt you will come to that.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: 'A Vision for Northern Ireland outside the EU' (19 Sep 2016)

Lord Maurice Morrow: I thank the Member for giving way. He is at great pains to point out what Scotland did, what Northern Ireland did, what Wales did and what England did in the referendum, but the referendum was not about that. This referendum was about the United Kingdom, of which Northern Ireland is an integral part. If Brexit brings one thing, it will surely bring this: it will remove the heavy hand —...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Finance: Brexit: Minister of Finance’s Position (13 Sep 2016)

Lord Maurice Morrow: T5. Lord Morrow asked the Minister of Finance whether, based on previous statements that he has made, not only in the House but on other occasions, it would be representing him correctly to say that, as of yet, he remains unconvinced of the merits of Brexit; and whether he accepts that he would be much better able to lead his Department from where we are than from where he would like us to...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Economy: Farm Safety: HSE Media Campaigns (12 Sep 2016)

Lord Maurice Morrow: I thank the Minister for his very comprehensive reply. He has touched on my next question. Can he tell us the number of fatalities on farms over the past five years? I accept that he may not have the figures at his fingertips, but it would be useful to have them.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Education: SEN Review (12 Sep 2016)

Lord Maurice Morrow: In this age of equality, how will the Minister ensure that decision-making in his Department provides for all sectors in education?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Economy: Farm Safety: HSE Media Campaigns (12 Sep 2016)

Lord Maurice Morrow: T5. Lord Morrow asked the Minister for the Economy to join with him in expressing sincere and deep sympathy to a family in Dungannon as they grapple with the dreadful situation in which a young man lost his life yesterday evening following an accident on a farm; in praising the Health and Safety Executive for its high-profile media campaigns; and to give an assurance that those campaigns,...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: United Kingdom Withdrawal from the European Union (27 Jun 2016)

Lord Maurice Morrow: We can, and will, thrive outside the European Union. What we do not need right now is the sort of hysterical response that we are getting from that quarter over there. [Interruption.] Yes, it is the case that the UK will face significant challenges in the months and years ahead. Political leaders in Northern Ireland will need to think carefully about issues such as the status of the border...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: United Kingdom Withdrawal from the European Union (27 Jun 2016)

Lord Maurice Morrow: — and those who voted "Leave" in considering how we go forward. This country has the intelligence and capability —

Lord Maurice Morrow: — to thrive regardless of whether we are in —

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: United Kingdom Withdrawal from the European Union (27 Jun 2016)

Lord Maurice Morrow: We have heard a lot today, and we have heard a lot over the weekend since this poll took place. People do not like it when the little people speak, and, when people are given their democratic right, there is something infinitely wrong with that, particularly from those opposite. It will soon get to the stage, I suppose, where there will be sections of our community and our great nation who...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: United Kingdom Withdrawal from the European Union (27 Jun 2016)

Lord Maurice Morrow: I will let you in later. I have heard you long enough. The EU referendum was a momentous democratic moment for the United Kingdom. The decision to leave is, without question, one of the biggest political moments that any of us have experienced. For me, the decision to leave is the right one for the United Kingdom. For me, the decision to leave could not have been better. I believe that...
