Northern Ireland Assembly: Adjournment: Flooding in East Belfast (29 Sep 2009)

Naomi Long: I thank Lord Browne for raising this issue again, although I regret the fact that we are having to have this debate. I thank the Minister for meeting me on a number of occasions to discuss the ongoing and serious problem of flooding in East Belfast, including flooding that occurred during the past week. I apologise to him that, as a result of that, some of what he will hear now he has heard...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Adjournment: Flooding in East Belfast (29 Sep 2009)

Naomi Long: I thank the Minister for giving way on that particular point. There is an ongoing issue, which I think was raised by Sir Reg Empey and others, of cars being parked over gullies when the cleaning cycle is ongoing. In other countries, residents are notified in advance of the day on which their gullies will be cleaned, and vehicles that are blocking those gullies on those days can be towed away....

Northern Ireland Assembly: environment: High Hedges Legislation (5 Oct 2009)

Naomi Long: What preparatory work will the Minister do with local government, so that when that much-welcomed legislation is passed, councils are ready to act on it? Many people have waited for a long time for that legislation. They are grateful that it will be introduced.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members’ Business: Migrant Workers (5 Oct 2009)

Naomi Long: I thank all Members who participated in the debate. Traditionally, Ireland has been a country of emigration rather than of immigration. For that reason, people here have found it difficult to come to terms with the notion of inward migration. We are much more used to waving people off from these shores than to welcoming them to our part of the world. From that perspective, how we deal with...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members’ Business: Migrant Workers (5 Oct 2009)

Naomi Long: Normally I would, but I cannot because my time is almost up. I wish to tie up those last few points in relation to the CSI strategy. A number of Members talked about the good work that is going on. Jim Shannon talked about the issue of language integration and about how important it is that people can speak the language so that they are able to access services and protect their rights. A...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Matters of the Day: Car Bomb in East Belfast (19 Oct 2009)

Naomi Long: It is with a heavy heart that I rise to speak about the issue today, because I do not think it is the kind of incident that any of us would wish to have to discuss when we come to the Assembly on a Monday morning. I send my best wishes to the lady who was injured; I am glad that she is recovering quickly. I also think of her family and friends at this time, because, although her physical...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Regional Development: Regional Development Strategy (19 Oct 2009)

Naomi Long: What discussions have there been between DRD and DOE about the planning reform process, particularly in ensuring coherence between the local development plans and the overriding, Northern Ireland-wide regional development strategy?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Office Of The First Minister And Deputy First Minister: Shared Future (21 Jan 2008)

Naomi Long: 1. asked the Office of the First Minister and deputy First Minister what its assessment is of the Executive’s plans to promote a shared future in light of the draft Programme for Government.     (AQO 1444/08)

Northern Ireland Assembly: Office Of The First Minister And Deputy First Minister: Shared Future (21 Jan 2008)

Naomi Long: Will the deputy First Minister give any indication of the timescale for the publication of that programme? In the draft Programme for Government, it was referred to as a programme to promote societal relations. Previous answers indicated that there would be some detail in the new year. Can a more definite timescale be provided?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Environment: Review of Public Administration (21 Jan 2008)

Naomi Long: 5. asked the Minister of the Environment to provide an update on proposed powers for district councils under the review of public administration.        (AQO 1459/08)

Northern Ireland Assembly: Environment: Review of Public Administration (21 Jan 2008)

Naomi Long: One of the key powers that most local government organisations would like to see devolved to them is community planning. However, for that power to be effective, other powers would have to be devolved that would allow local government bodies to produce, not simply a wish list for their borough, but also a to-do list. Does the Minister agree that other significant powers will have to be...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Ministerial Statement: The Appointment of Commissioners Designate for Victims and Survivors (28 Jan 2008)

Naomi Long: I welcome the additional resources that have been set aside for those who suffered during the conflict in Northern Ireland. The people who suffered most were least considered as we tried to resolve that conflict, so this is an important step in trying to address that. Announcing the change in policy from a commissioner to a commission at the same time as placing the names of those who were...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Programme for Government  and Investment Strategy (28 Jan 2008)

Naomi Long: I beg to move amendment No 1: Leave out all after “Assembly” and insert: “calls on the First Minister and deputy First Minister to lay a revised Programme for Government before the Assembly, as the Programme for Government currently before the Assembly does not properly address the deep divisions in this society and the need to build a shared future, does not make meaningful changes to...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Regional Development: Flooding: Emergency Plans (28 Jan 2008)

Naomi Long: The Minister, in his response to Dr McDonnell’s original question, rightly said that the division of responsibility regarding flooding and drainage is complicated. In light of that, what measures are he and his Department taking to protect areas that have been subjected to significant and repeated flooding from further intensification and development? In areas where flooding has not been...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Ministerial Statement: The Re-establishment of the Ministerial Subcommittee on Children and Young People (4 Feb 2008)

Naomi Long: I thank the junior Ministers for bringing their news to the Chamber. During last week’s meeting of the Committee for the Office of the First Minister and deputy First Minister, the end of special funding was discussed. I want to explore that issue further. Most people accept that mainstreamed and continuous funding is preferable to special funding. However, if money is not ring-fenced for...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Office of the First Minister and Deputy First Minister: Eames/Bradley Consultative  Group on the Past (4 Feb 2008)

Naomi Long: Does the First Minister agree that when, in his last answer, he confused the Eames-Bradley Consultative Group on the Past with the recently appointed victims’ commission, he simply added to the public confusion about the issue? It is important that victims be given consideration in the context of the past. However, does he agree that if the thorny issues that will be raised are to be...
