Petition - Fairer Funding Formula for School Pupils in Macclesfield Constituency and the Cheshire East Local Authority Area: Contaminated Blood (25 Ebr 2017)

Mark Durkan: The House should not forget that there was a tribunal of inquiry in Ireland. The Lindsay inquiry found that the state knew of the risks and continued nevertheless, because that is what other states such as the UK were doing. So is it credible that an inquiry in Ireland could find that the risks were known but carried on anyway, and that a further investigation through a panel such as that...

Northern Ireland (Ministerial Appointments and Regional Rates) Bill (24 Ebr 2017)

Mark Durkan: I remind my hon. Friend that when it came to the Stormont House talks, it was the SDLP who submitted the papers on a whole community approach to tackling paramilitarism, it was the SDLP who put in a whole enforcement approach to tackling paramilitarism, and, in fact, it was the SDLP who wanted paramilitarism and criminality on the agenda of those all-party talks. It was the DUP who helped to...

Northern Ireland (Ministerial Appointments and Regional Rates) Bill (24 Ebr 2017)

Mark Durkan: In following the hon. Member for East Antrim (Sammy Wilson), I should say that I was struck by the number of times he condemned Sinn Féin for using a veto—that from the DUP, the most veto-holic of all the parties, not least in relation to the abuse of the petition of concern, which other hon. Members referred to earlier. Let me join others in referring to the grave attack at the...

Northern Ireland (Ministerial Appointments and Regional Rates) Bill (24 Ebr 2017)

Mark Durkan: No. The biggest abuse of the petition of concern comes whenever it is used to prevent motions in the Assembly—even non-binding motions and valid and credible motions of censure—from having any standing whatever. If people are going to use the petition of concern in relation to motions of censure in one way, they should recognise that others are going to say, “If you are going to veto...

Northern Ireland (Ministerial Appointments and Regional Rates) Bill (24 Ebr 2017)

Mark Durkan: I am entirely happy with operating the Good Friday agreement as the people voted for it—people of Ireland north and south. A petition of concern would mean that a mechanism could be checked and proofed. If there were not concerns in relation to rights and equality, it could proceed in the normal way through the Assembly; if there were, it would require cross-community support. I make no...

Northern Ireland (Ministerial Appointments and Regional Rates) Bill (24 Ebr 2017)

Mark Durkan: We have to use the timeline that is created here and now. We also have to use such good will as any of us were able to detect in the talks in Stormont Castle over the past number of weeks. I personally would not come to the conclusion that one party is determined to prevent the formation of a Government altogether. I wish I had more evidence that I could point to so as to support my hunch...

Northern Ireland (Ministerial Appointments and Regional Rates) Bill (24 Ebr 2017)

Mark Durkan: I accept that those bodies have given that indication, but they have not said how it will be done. The Prime Minister has been careful to say that she wants the border to be as frictionless and seamless as possible and that there would be “no return to the hard borders of the past”, but there has been no full commitment that there will be no possible borders of the future. Sector after...

Northern Ireland (Ministerial Appointments and Regional Rates) Bill (24 Ebr 2017)

Mark Durkan: I agree with the hon. Gentleman that the Government here should have acted more quickly as the RHI scandal emerged, but he is painting a complete fiction by trying to say that the DUP wanted a public inquiry—it entirely opposed a public inquiry. It was on the same page as Sinn Féin in opposing a public inquiry. It said that an inquiry by the Public Accounts Committee in the Assembly would...

Northern Ireland (Ministerial Appointments and Regional Rates) Bill (24 Ebr 2017)

Mark Durkan: Will the Secretary of State clarify whether, in his mind, such legislation in that context would amount to direct rule in the sense that we have always know it, or would it be some form of downloadable legislative cover for administrative governance when it comes to further budget setting?

Early Parliamentary General Election (19 Ebr 2017)

Mark Durkan: As someone who believes that the Prime Minister has presented the case for this election on an entirely false premise, I, too, will be voting against the motion. I was not asking for an election last week or the week before; I was arguing that any move to an election in the near future would not help the negotiations in Northern Ireland. My mind has not changed, so why should I pretend that...

Early Parliamentary General Election (19 Ebr 2017)

Mark Durkan: I appreciate the hon. Gentleman’s intervention. While we are making comparisons with the election of 1974, an unforeseen casualty of that election was the Sunningdale agreement. The power-sharing Executive formed in Northern Ireland out of the 1973 Assembly ended up falling as a consequence of the 1974 general election because of what was seen to be the balance of forces. Of course, this...

Business of the House (18 Ebr 2017)

Mark Durkan: Will the Leader of the House tells us whether the Prime Minister took soundings from the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland as to the impact of this announcement on the ongoing inter-party talks, and does the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland still intend to bring legislation through this House and the House of Lords in the wash-up in respect of rates and topping up the mandate for...

Legislating for Uk Withdrawal from the EU (30 Maw 2017)

Mark Durkan: The great “download and save until delete” Bill will actually lead to a carnival of reaction, when, alongside the so-called bonfire of red tape, we will see Ministers competing in a demolition derby to reduce various rights and environmental protections. It is also a charter for dilution before devolution. Does the Secretary of State recognise that for some of us to trust Tory Ministers...

Business of the House (30 Maw 2017)

Mark Durkan: If the cross-party talks in Northern Ireland are to inform the legislation that the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland introduces in late April, will the Leader of the House assure us that business constraints in this House will not be used as an excuse for saying that that legislation and those talks should not address serious issues such as how the First and Deputy First Ministers are...

Written Answers — Department for International Development: South Sudan: Work Permits (30 Maw 2017)

Mark Durkan: To ask the Secretary of State for International Development, what assessment her Department has made of the implications of the increase in the cost of work permits for foreign workers in South Sudan for the amount of aid delivered in that country.

Article 50 (29 Maw 2017)

Mark Durkan: The Prime Minister’s letter refers to doing nothing to jeopardise the peace process, and to the need to uphold the Belfast agreement. Does she recognise that the Belfast agreement exists in several strands, including strand two, which provides a framework for all-island co-operation and north-south joint implementation in key areas? It was presumed that all that was going to happen in the...

Northern Ireland: Political Developments (28 Maw 2017)

Mark Durkan: Notwithstanding your stress on the constraints of brevity, Mr Speaker, I want to take this opportunity, as MP for Foyle, to pay proper tribute to the late Martin McGuinness, with whom and against whom I worked for well over three decades in all sorts of contexts and roles. As his predecessor as Deputy First Minister, as a former colleague in the Government and as a counterpart in the...

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: South Sudan: Work Permits (20 Maw 2017)

Mark Durkan: To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, whether he has raised the increase in the cost of work permits for foreign workers in South Sudan with the South Sudanese Government.

Attorney General: Great Repeal Bill (16 Maw 2017)

Mark Durkan: Does the Attorney General envisage that there will be consent motions under EVEL provisions in respect of any of the potential clauses in the great repeal Bill?
