Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Oral Answers to Questions — Economy: Intertrade UK (29 Ebr 2024)

Conor Murphy: Did you say "progressive"? [Laughter.] OK. Anyway, as I said in answer to Mr Beattie, it is an idea that was developed as a consequence of the Command Paper. It is not fully developed. In that paper, it was agreed by the British Government that it would be housed in Whitehall and would be the responsibility of the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities. We do not have a function...

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Oral Answers to Questions — Economy: Community Wealth Building (29 Ebr 2024)

Conor Murphy: Community wealth building is an important piece in the delivery of my overall economic strategy and one that I am committed to strengthening. Community wealth building cuts across several areas of government and, in particular, connects with the work of the Department for Communities. I intend to work closely with DFC to address agreed recommendations outlined in its recent report by an...

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Oral Answers to Questions — Economy: Community Wealth Building (29 Ebr 2024)

Conor Murphy: A pilot scheme is already up and running on community wealth building between Larne and Derry. It is for the north-west generally but is focused on Derry. We recognise that, when we talk about regional balance and addressing inequality, imbalance does not exist just outside Belfast and that there are areas in Belfast that suffer from inequalities that need to be addressed. Of course, when we...

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Oral Answers to Questions — Economy: Community Wealth Building (29 Ebr 2024)

Conor Murphy: There are many good social economy projects in rural areas. As I said, we have resourced a three-year strategy for the social economy that, I expect, will not be confined to urban areas. The community wealth building pilot project to which I referred will bring us much good information on how that can be done. At the moment, the one linkage is between Larne and Derry, which is a good project,...

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Oral Answers to Questions — Economy: UEFA European Football Championship 2028 (29 Ebr 2024)

Conor Murphy: Following a historic and successful joint bid, the five football associations across these islands are set to host the UEFA European Championships in 2028. In February, officials from my Department and the Department for Communities, alongside the Irish FA and the GAA, met a UEFA delegation in Belfast. Since then, there has been further engagement. Significant progress has been made,...

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Oral Answers to Questions — Economy: UEFA European Football Championship 2028 (29 Ebr 2024)

Conor Murphy: I acknowledge what the Member says. At its initiation, Casement Park was a project to provide for Gaelic games in Ulster and further afield and to provide economic regeneration in that part of west Belfast and, I have no doubt, the whole of Belfast through the provision of a fantastic venue. The work is progressing well. The Ulster GAA council has commenced site clearance work, which is a...

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Oral Answers to Questions — Economy: UEFA European Football Championship 2028 (29 Ebr 2024)

Conor Murphy: The matter does not rest with the Executive Office; it rests with the Department for Communities. I would like to see the tendering documents being released. That would give us more certainty about what the cost of the project will be. I recently met the IFA and the GAA. There is a concern that any delays with this will potentially dent UEFA's confidence in the project, and it is UEFA's...

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Oral Answers to Questions — Economy: Grid Connection Charges (29 Ebr 2024)

Conor Murphy: I plan to introduce socialisation of grid connection charges. Socialisation of connection charges is an important step in removing the current high cost barrier to the mass adoption of heat pumps and electric vehicles. It will create opportunities for businesses to decarbonise and is a key enabler in meeting our net zero targets. Precise details of how that will work will need to be worked...

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Oral Answers to Questions — Economy: Grid Connection Charges (29 Ebr 2024)

Conor Murphy: Last summer, when the parties who were going to make up the Executive met, we talked about planning reform, not in the sense of planning policy but in the sense of improving planning systems and getting decisions to be taken quickly. There was broad agreement across all the parties. I have not had an opportunity for direct engagement on that, but I have no doubt that, when we produce the...

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Oral Answers to Questions — Economy: Grid Connection Charges (29 Ebr 2024)

Conor Murphy: Yes, it will. The Member will know, as I do, from representing rural areas that connection charges can be prohibitive because of the isolated topography. The opportunity to socialise charges will assist people to get support for building their own homes or establishing small businesses or businesses in rural areas. It is an important factor in ensuring that we have more regional balance and...

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Oral Answers to Questions — Economy: Agri-food Sector: Investment (29 Ebr 2024)

Conor Murphy: I recognise the importance of the agri-food processing sector to our economy and the contribution that it will make to delivering my economic strategy. My Department, through Invest NI, provides a wide range of support to the sector in areas including innovation, skills, sustainability and export development. However, the sector faces challenges including a productivity gap compared with...

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Oral Answers to Questions — Economy: Agri-food Sector: Investment (29 Ebr 2024)

Conor Murphy: A project for that is under discussion. It has been through various processes, including in my Department, and is now going through a business case process in the Department of Finance. I expect that we will be in a position this year to announce support for the sector.

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Oral Answers to Questions — Economy: Agri-food Sector: Investment (29 Ebr 2024)

Conor Murphy: As, I am sure, the Member will understand, it will lie primarily in the remit of the Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs to assist people to get land and farms into that area. We will be able to contribute to that, even through some of the areas that were referred to in the previous questions on connectivity and making grid connections more accessible for people. The move...

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Oral Answers to Questions — Economy: Ministry of Defence Contracts (29 Ebr 2024)

Conor Murphy: The aerospace sector has over 100 companies, employs 8,000 workers and contributes an estimated £1·9 billion to the local economy. Invest NI, supported by the Department, engages with the MoD across several forums. In 2022-23, MoD spend per head was £100 here, compared with £380 in Scotland and England and £250 in Wales. Invest NI works closely with the ADS trade association to lobby for...

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Oral Answers to Questions — Economy: Ministry of Defence Contracts (29 Ebr 2024)

Conor Murphy: Invest NI is already working in that space, with both the MoD and the ADS trade association, to lobby for additional spend and facilitate companies that want to get into that area of work. That work will continue.

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Oral Answers to Questions — Economy: Careers Advice (29 Ebr 2024)

Conor Murphy: Ensuring that we have a high-quality careers system is key to connecting our people with the full range of opportunities that exist across our economy. While the Department's Careers Service works with clients of all ages and in a range of settings, it is critical that our young people in schools have timely access to high-quality, professional careers advice and guidance. I recently met the...

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Oral Answers to Questions — Economy: Careers Advice (29 Ebr 2024)

Conor Murphy: We discussed it on a couple of occasions, and then we brought officials with us when we met. We want to ensure that the Careers Service, and all the information that goes into it, is accessible to all young people. That is perhaps not currently the case in every set of circumstances. In the first instance, we want to make sure that the full range of advice is available to people. The Careers...

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Oral Answers to Questions — Economy: Careers Advice (29 Ebr 2024)

Conor Murphy: We want to ensure that the full range of advice is available to all kids, regardless of their background or school setting, and that there is an opportunity for all young people and their parents to get proper, professional advice on the range of options that are available. Of course, the more options we have, the more young people can access skills and training and get opportunities for...

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Oral Answers to Questions — Economy: Careers Advice (29 Ebr 2024)

Conor Murphy: As I said, the meeting that I had with Minister Givan was to discuss, in the first instance, careers advice. We both agreed that the two Departments, because we share responsibility for education, need to work together closely and seamlessly to make sure that all young people experience maximum advantage as they go through school. That will include work experience, because that is very much...

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Oral Answers to Questions — Economy: Hospitality Sector: Challenges (29 Ebr 2024)

Conor Murphy: I understand the importance of the hospitality sector for both the tourism industry and the high street economy, with approximately 57,000 jobs in the accommodation and food service sector. Addressing the challenges of rising costs cuts across several areas of government, including the Department for Communities and local councils. My Department is taking steps to support businesses through...
