Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Adjournment: Hospitality and Tourism: East Antrim (11 Meh 2024)

Conor Murphy: Go raibh maith agat, a Leas-Cheann Comhairle. [Translation: Thank you, Mr Deputy Speaker.] I thank the Member for securing the Adjournment debate, and I thank all those who contributed, particularly the representatives from the constituency. They spoke with passion about East Antrim and the tourism offering there. I have, on several occasions, stayed in Cushendun and Cushendall, so I can...

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Private Members' Business: Energy Market (11 Meh 2024)

Conor Murphy: Go raibh maith agat, a Phríomh-Leas-Cheann Comhairle. [Translation: Thank you, Madam Principal Deputy Speaker.] I thank the Members for bringing the motion to the Floor. It is an important issue, and I very much welcome the opportunity to speak on it. I am moving quickly to deliver on the economic plans that I set up when I took office. The plans have our energy ambitions at their core,...

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Oral Answers to Questions — Economy: Green Energy Skills Industry Reference Group ( 3 Meh 2024)

Conor Murphy: We have had several reports from different groups, and we have had a lot of engagement on the matter. Our big challenge is trying to find the resource from the Department to match the ambition that exists, but there have been examples of good practice. For instance, the manufacturing sector in the mid-Ulster cluster engages with the colleges and schools to ensure that their focus is there. We...

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Oral Answers to Questions — Economy: Subregional Economic Action Plan ( 3 Meh 2024)

Conor Murphy: The intention behind the subregional action plan is to ensure that we get all the actors in each area to come together to identify the needs of that area. Some of that may be Invest NI work, some of it may be for the Department for the Economy and some of it may be for other Departments. We want to ensure that local areas get some resource, get the necessary structures in place and find their...

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Oral Answers to Questions — Economy: NEETs: Newry and Armagh ( 3 Meh 2024)

Conor Murphy: I recognise that one of the greatest challenges that we have is getting people who have fallen through the cracks in the system back into training and education. Previously, support for those programmes — I am sure that the Member is aware, as I am, of many groups that work effectively on that in our constituency — came through European funding. That funding ended with Brexit and was not...

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Oral Answers to Questions — Economy: NEETs: Newry and Armagh ( 3 Meh 2024)

Conor Murphy: Yes, they are. Many of us who have been here for many years, as the Member and I have been, pride ourselves on having a world-class education system. It is world-class for those it works for, but, unfortunately, there are far too many people it does not work for. In the situation that we are in, with almost full employment but a high level of economic inactivity, that is clearly an area that,...

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Oral Answers to Questions — Economy: Further and Higher Education: Part-time Learners ( 3 Meh 2024)

Conor Murphy: There is a range of support packages in those areas. We have to take our lead from the colleges and universities on the numbers. As with all such anticipatory programmes, it is hard to see what the needs will be over the course of the year. We generally manage to supplement the funding for them. A month or two ago, we were able to announce additional money for student hardship support schemes...

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Oral Answers to Questions — Economy: Further and Higher Education: Part-time Learners ( 3 Meh 2024)

Conor Murphy: I am happy to work with the colleges and universities to ensure that they do all that they can to allow people to come into education. They design some of their facilities around the courses that they operate, but they have to be conscious that the people who are furthest from our education system and employment are people who suffer from illnesses or disabilities. They are often the people...

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Oral Answers to Questions — Economy: RHI Scheme: Closure ( 3 Meh 2024)

Conor Murphy: I have been attempting to secure Executive agreement on the future of the RHI scheme since 4 April. However, to date, it has not been allowed on to the Executive agenda. That is delaying participants' receipt of an uplift in their tariff. It also puts at risk the orderly closure of the scheme, as Ofgem has provided a final termination notice. Ofgem will continue to administer delivery of the...

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Oral Answers to Questions — Economy: RHI Scheme: Closure ( 3 Meh 2024)

Conor Murphy: That is the plan. From the court rulings, there was a sense that the court wanted to ensure that people were treated fairly. Many people entered the scheme on the basis of a genuine attempt to avail themselves of a support that was there for them. We have to ensure that people are treated fairly, but we first have to get to a stage at which the Executive agree on what we are going to do about...

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Oral Answers to Questions — Economy: Invest NI: Aerospace, Defence and Space ( 3 Meh 2024)

Conor Murphy: It is incumbent on Invest and the Department to identify areas of priority, particularly clusters. The Member is quite right: there is a growing cluster with some big players, but a lot of small and medium enterprises are involved in advancing the sector. Aerospace touches on the areas of good jobs and productivity, in that there is a lot of innovation and growth in the sector, and it is in...

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Oral Answers to Questions — Economy: Invest NI: Aerospace, Defence and Space ( 3 Meh 2024)

Conor Murphy: I am invited to a lot of events, as the Member will be aware. It is a question of juggling the diary to make sure that I can go to as many as I possibly can while retaining a focus on the work that I need to do in the Department. I am always content to consider any invitations that come to me to make sure that I do my best to support all our businesses across the North.

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Oral Answers to Questions — Economy: Social Enterprise Co-design Group ( 3 Meh 2024)

Conor Murphy: The first meeting of the social enterprise co-design group was on 31 May. I was able to attend the meeting briefly, which I was pleased to do. The group is highly motivated to see strategic support for the sector and used the first meeting as an opportunity to share its experience and wealth of knowledge. There was an understanding that the focus should be on trading, scaling and supply chain...

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Oral Answers to Questions — Economy: Social Enterprise Co-design Group ( 3 Meh 2024)

Conor Murphy: A meeting of that group took place a few weeks ago when my colleague Deirdre Hargey was at the helm of the Department for the Economy. It was important to come together to see the opportunities that the credit union has to support our economic plans to support regional balance, create good jobs, increase productivity and tackle issues around net zero. The Irish League of Credit Unions has a...

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Oral Answers to Questions — Economy: Green Energy Skills Industry Reference Group ( 3 Meh 2024)

Conor Murphy: As we have said many times here, the issue of skills is huge. The big attraction, particularly for foreign investors, is our people and their skills. The biggest challenge that we currently have is how to do that. There is a range of engagement across a lot of sectors by, for example, the Skills Council and the reference group, and there is a report from Matrix on the current and future...

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Oral Answers to Questions — Economy: Third-level Qualifications ( 3 Meh 2024)

Conor Murphy: There may be a perception that universities are moving into that space at the expense of colleges. I think that work has been done to establish that that is not necessarily the case. We need to make sure, in a system in which we have very little money to spend — that is why the work between ourselves and the Department of Education across all these matters is important — that we use the...

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Oral Answers to Questions — Economy: Third-level Qualifications ( 3 Meh 2024)

Conor Murphy: The first priority when I came into office was to get the lecturers' pay issues resolved. I am glad that we were able to get that done. I have had a meeting with the principals of the colleges, and we will continue to bring that reform work forward. We want to make sure that we have a system that recognises the unique product of each college, their autonomy and the communities that they serve...

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Oral Answers to Questions — Economy: Third-level Qualifications ( 3 Meh 2024)

Conor Murphy: At the joint meeting that I had with them, we did not get down to individual campuses, but I have had discussions. I met the Member's party leader in relation to the Castlereagh campus. I have had correspondence and issues raised with me by other elected representatives. I had the pleasure of visiting the college in the Member's constituency and chatting to the principal and senior staff...

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Oral Answers to Questions — Economy: Third-level Qualifications ( 3 Meh 2024)

Conor Murphy: Across nearly all Departments, when Ministers came into office, our primary focus was to ensure that we resolved public-sector pay issues. With the exception of the Department of Education — I understand, however, that there will be, hopefully, some progress with the schools this week — those issues, by and large, have been resolved. I met representatives from the colleges and talked to...

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Oral Answers to Questions — Economy: Tuition Fees ( 3 Meh 2024)

Conor Murphy: I have no intention of increasing tuition fees, given that our students already face considerable cost-of-living pressures and that many take on significant debt to access higher education. I am committed to working with the higher education sector to embed sustainable funding arrangements that enable the sector to thrive and create more opportunities for our students.
