Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Oral Answers to Questions — Economy: Higher-level Apprenticeships: North Down (24 Meh 2024)

Conor Murphy: Public-sector apprenticeships are important, and I will encourage all Departments to step up to the plate in that regard. It is a challenge to manage all of that as well as budgets, but they are important routes for younger people and those who are already in employment to upskill. As I said in my initial answer, HLAs are proving to be more and more popular as the years go on. They have been...

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Oral Answers to Questions — Economy: Higher-level Apprenticeships: North Down (24 Meh 2024)

Conor Murphy: If I can get the answer quickly. The annual Northern Ireland apprenticeship week showcases how apprenticeships can transform the future for apprentices and businesses by helping them to release their potential. In addition, a twice-yearly apprenticeship advertising campaign reinforces the benefits of apprenticeship for the individual and employer.

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Oral Answers to Questions — Economy: SEN Provision (24 Meh 2024)

Conor Murphy: My Department has a range of provision for young people with special educational needs that is delivered through further education colleges, universities and across our vocational training provision. There are significant gaps in provision, however, and they have been worsened by the loss of the European social fund. That is not acceptable. Everyone should be able to access opportunities and...

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Oral Answers to Questions — Economy: SEN Provision (24 Meh 2024)

Conor Murphy: I had the pleasure of meeting Alma White last week in my office here. Yes, it will be a question of collaborating with other Departments. With that post-19 cohort, there is a significant responsibility for the Department for the Economy, but that will require us to have a joined-up approach with the Department of Education. We are already working on the disability strategy, which is led by...

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Oral Answers to Questions — Economy: SEN Provision (24 Meh 2024)

Conor Murphy: I agree with you that there is a dearth of provision. That has not happened recently but has been going on for many years. It is an inequality, and, if we are to do anything in our job in this institution and the job of those of us who hold ministerial positions, it should be to try to tackle inequalities and injustices wherever they are. I gave a commitment to try to do that. I have worked...

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Oral Answers to Questions — Economy: Workers' Rights: NDNA Commitments (24 Meh 2024)

Conor Murphy: I plan to consult on proposals to bring forward an employment rights Bill to protect and enhance workers' rights. As well as supporting the commitments in 'New Decade, New Approach', the new legislation will help deliver on the good jobs objective in my economic plan. Payment of the real living wage is a key element of a good job. While minimum wage setting powers have not been devolved at...

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Oral Answers to Questions — Economy: Workers' Rights: NDNA Commitments (24 Meh 2024)

Conor Murphy: Yes. As I say, I hope, next week, to announce a consultation on the full range of issues that will be in the good jobs Bill. My intention is to come to the Chamber to do that next week. That will include a range of matters. The consultation document will go out. Of course, people can respond and, if they think that it should cover other areas that are not in it, they can feel free to make...

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Oral Answers to Questions — Economy: Workers' Rights: NDNA Commitments (24 Meh 2024)

Conor Murphy: I have already said on a number of occasions that it will and should include such a ban. Exploitative situations for all workers should be tackled wherever we can do that. As I said in response to a previous question, if there is one thing that we can do here, it is to tackle inequalities and injustices, and we should set our minds to that. It is my intention to do that. Obviously, I will put...

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Oral Answers to Questions — Economy: Employee Ownership (24 Meh 2024)

Conor Murphy: Employee ownership has the potential to increase productivity and create fairer workplaces. However, currently, the North has only a limited number of employee-ownership businesses, and I would like to see that increase. I have directed my Department to undertake research on employee ownership. That will include an examination of the advantages or disadvantages of employee ownership as a...

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Oral Answers to Questions — Economy: Employee Ownership (24 Meh 2024)

Conor Murphy: It is, if you like, an approach to business succession that is not well illuminated here. It is not well known. It is growing. A week or two ago, I attended a conference, which was the third in a series of conferences over three days — in Newry, Cookstown, I think, and then Belfast — at which there was significant interest in that model. The benefits are subject to qualifying conditions....

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Oral Answers to Questions — Economy: Non-domestic Renewable Heat Incentive: Closure (24 Meh 2024)

Conor Murphy: It is frustrating that the future of RHI is still undecided. It is a problem that I inherited and one that should have been dealt with long ago. A permanent solution, as raised in last year's Court of Appeal judgment, is necessary for all legitimate participants in the scheme and for the taxpayer. Delay risks further litigation. The urgent need to close the scheme is underlined by Ofgem...

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Oral Answers to Questions — Economy: Non-domestic Renewable Heat Incentive: Closure (24 Meh 2024)

Conor Murphy: Yes, the delay in taking a decision delays everything. It also acts to frustrate the view of the Court of Appeal, which was that this thing should move on at pace, that people should get certainty in relation to tariffs and that the Executive should give some certainty in relation to the future of the scheme. It is extremely frustrating not to be able to have the issue discussed in the...

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Oral Answers to Questions — Economy: Non-domestic Renewable Heat Incentive: Closure (24 Meh 2024)

Conor Murphy: Getting to the point at which that can be calculated involves entering a discussion on what might be an acceptable outcome regarding tariffs and the funding that might be available to us from Treasury. We have to get to the first base, which is that the Executive have to take a decision and signal an intent. That is what I have been bringing to the Executive for a number of weeks, but I have...

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Oral Answers to Questions — Economy: Stendhal Festival, Limavady (24 Meh 2024)

Conor Murphy: Tourism NI has provided significant financial support to the Stendhal Festival in recent years, amounting to £58,000 for the past five years in which the festival has taken place. Data in relation to the performance of events supported under the national tourism event sponsorship scheme is provided by event organisers as part of their post-event evaluation. Data on the performance of the...

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Oral Answers to Questions — Economy: Stendhal Festival, Limavady (24 Meh 2024)

Conor Murphy: One would like to be in a position to support all events, but the big challenge with supporting any event is the finance available. That means that, when you get down to decision-making, you need evidence to support it and you need money available to spend on the event. That means that events such as that festival and other events end up competing with each other for limited funds. That can...

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Oral Answers to Questions — Economy: Stendhal Festival, Limavady (24 Meh 2024)

Conor Murphy: I am a bit like you, a Phríomh-LeasCheann Comhairle: I am getting too old for these musical events.

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Oral Answers to Questions — Economy: Stendhal Festival, Limavady (24 Meh 2024)

Conor Murphy: There are too many people at them. I agree: it is unfortunate that, when budgets become tightly squeezed, often the first thing to suffer is the arts. Not only are the arts necessary for the enrichment of our lives, but the events are an economic generator in a lot of areas. It is a challenge. The funding is, obviously, not my area, but, with the new Government coming in, hopefully, the...

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Private Members' Business: Retaining and Inspiring Young Talent (24 Meh 2024)

Conor Murphy: It might be better to come back.

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Opposition Business: All-Ireland Tourism (18 Meh 2024)

Conor Murphy: Go raibh maith agat, a Phríomh-Leas-Cheann Comhairle. [Translation: Thank you, Madam Principal Deputy Speaker.] I welcome the opportunity to speak in the debate and thank Members for their contributions. Tourism provides employment for 70,000 people here, 70% of whom work outside Belfast. That highlights the importance and the potential of tourism to the local economy, with places to see and...

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Opposition Business: All-Ireland Tourism (18 Meh 2024)

Conor Murphy: I beg your pardon; I was in full flow.
