Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Oral Answers to Questions — Social Development: Rent Arrears and Antisocial Tenants ( 8 Mai 2001)

Jim Shannon: The six months are just up. Can the Minister indicate the numbers of tenants with rent arrears in the period 1 November 2000 until 6 May 2001? The timescale might prevent the Minister from answering. Furthermore, can he indicate whether there has been a downward trend in the numbers of antisocial tenants? Does the Minister agree with all the Members that the antisocial behaviour of some...

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Oral Answers to Questions — Higher and Further Education, Training and Employment: Further Education Colleges ( 8 Mai 2001)

Jim Shannon: 3. asked the Minister of Higher and Further Education, Training and Employment to give his assessment of the consistency, within the 17 colleges of further education, in their delivery of an educational programme to prepare young people for work. (AQO 1395/00)

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Oral Answers to Questions — Higher and Further Education, Training and Employment: Further Education Colleges ( 8 Mai 2001)

Jim Shannon: The Minister will be aware that colleges of further education have a degree of autonomy on their boards of governors. Is the Minister satisfied that effective liaison arrangements involving all 17 colleges across the Province are in place and that they are in a position to deliver a cohesive joined-up skills programme to meet the demands of the labour market? For example, if someone...

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Oral Answers to Questions — Enterprise, Trade and Investment: Foot-and-Mouth Disease (Impact on Business) ( 8 Mai 2001)

Jim Shannon: 7. asked the Minister of Enterprise, Trade and Investment to give his assessment of the impact that foot-and-mouth disease has had on businesses involved in country sports and leisure activities. (AQO 1397/00)

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Oral Answers to Questions — Enterprise, Trade and Investment: Foot-and-Mouth Disease (Impact on Business) ( 8 Mai 2001)

Jim Shannon: I am concerned about some country sports. Examples from my area illustrate what is happening in the Province. Trade has decreased by 50% in a number of country sport shops in the Strangford borough, and seven or eight put-and-take lakes have been closed for four months.

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Oral Answers to Questions — Enterprise, Trade and Investment: Foot-and-Mouth Disease (Impact on Business) ( 8 Mai 2001)

Jim Shannon: The Ark Rare Breeds Open Farm, a tourist attraction in Newtownards, has been closed for four months. It has no income but must still pay rates and other bills. What can we do to help these people in the short and long term?

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Fireworks ( 8 Mai 2001)

Jim Shannon: Does the Member agree that rather than being a source of pleasure and fun, fireworks have been turned into weapons and used against senior citizens, animal owners and families? Does she agree that the working group needs to achieve a balance between the legitimate use of fireworks and ensuring that people do not live in fear of them?

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Second Report of the Committee for Enterprise, Trade and Investment ( 1 Mai 2001)

Jim Shannon: It is disappointing that we have had three major motions crammed into one day. That does not do justice to any of the issues. Each of them could have done with a full day’s debate. Many more Members would have been able to contribute. The councils, including Ards Borough Council, made a significant contribution to ‘Strategy 2010’. It is important that Members reiterate some of the...

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Relief for Businesses Affected by Foot-and-Mouth Disease ( 1 Mai 2001)

Jim Shannon: I support the motion. I want to talk more the tourism aspect. According to the figures we received, the cost of the crisis to the economy is approximately £200 million. When this cost is looked at in the context of the whole Province, it gives us an idea of how much everyone has to lose. PriceWaterhouseCoopers carried out an extensive study into the impact of the crisis on the agriculture...

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture and Rural Development: Decommissioning Scheme for Fishermen (30 Ebr 2001)

Jim Shannon: The second part of the question was about grants. I understand that those who qualify for decommissioning have to pay back part of the grant that they received for their boats over the years. I am quite concerned about that, and I would like some clarification on the matter. Does the Department of Agriculture and Rural Development intend to ask for all that money, or part of it, to be paid...

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture and Rural Development: Decommissioning Scheme for Fishermen (30 Ebr 2001)

Jim Shannon: Can the Minister give any indication of the number of fishermen who wish to take up the decommissioning scheme? Will the Minister pursue the repayment of grants given for boats in the past from those who are decommissioning? Will the Minister agree that it is very important that only a certain element of decommissioning should take place so that the core part of the industry and its business...

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Oral Answers to Questions — Culture, Arts and Leisure: Safe Spectator Facilities (30 Ebr 2001)

Jim Shannon: Can the Minister tell us what funding will be available to promote safer spectator facilities at sporting venues such as first division football clubs to bring them up to an acceptable standard? Will the Minister join me in congratulating Ards Football Club on winning the first division championship and getting into the premier league? Does he recognise that the club will need some funding...

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Adoption (Intercountry Aspects) Bill: Consideration Stage (30 Ebr 2001)

Jim Shannon: I would like some clarification on clause 9. Some of my constituents have indicated that it can take up to four years to bring a child through the intercountry adoption agency. Paragraph 32 of the explanatory and financial memorandum on the Adoption (Intercountry Aspects) Bill states that "the child is required to have had his home with the prospective adopters for a period of at least six...

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Adoption (Intercountry Aspects) Bill: Consideration Stage (30 Ebr 2001)

Jim Shannon: My constituents have told me that it can take four years to adopt. I cannot understand clause 9. The explanatory memorandum states that "the child is required to have had his home with the prospective adopters for a period of at least six months before an adoption order may be made." I am trying to clarify how six months is the issue when people have told me that it takes four years.

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Adoption (Intercountry Aspects) Bill: Consideration Stage (30 Ebr 2001)

Jim Shannon: If it states in the legislation that a child must be in the adopter’s house for six months, how can we equate that with someone who wants to adopt a child? For example, two suitable adopters in Northern Ireland have told me that it takes four years to adopt a baby from the Crimea. How can they get around this process? How can they fit into the six-months category?

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Private Streets (Construction) (Amendment) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2001 (24 Ebr 2001)

Jim Shannon: I will certainly not be asking any questions about the Balmoral Show or anything else. I will be specific to the issue. I am glad that the street lighting legislation will bring us into line with the UK mainland, and I welcome the Minister’s statement. However, at the same time it is important that the responsibility falls upon the shoulders of the developers. We all hope to see that, and...

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Tourism: North/South Ministerial Council (24 Ebr 2001)

Jim Shannon: The Minister has rightly recognised the effects of the foot-and-mouth disease on the tourist industry. It has been confirmed in today’s papers that the Balmoral Show will be cancelled this year, resulting in the loss of some £6 million of income and revenue to the area. What steps will be taken to compensate people who have lost bed spaces as a result of the cancellation of the show? What...

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Tourism: North/South Ministerial Council (24 Ebr 2001)

Jim Shannon: I read the Minister’s statement prior to entering the Chamber, so I am aware of its contents.

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Tourism: North/South Ministerial Council (24 Ebr 2001)

Jim Shannon: I will ask two other questions. The first relates to consequential loss. Can the Minister look at how that is going to affect the country’s sports and leisure activities in relation to the North/South body and the relationship that the Tourist Board has with local councils? In my own area, the local council has been very active in promoting tourism across Northern Ireland and further afield...

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Assembly Standing Orders (23 Ebr 2001)

Jim Shannon: It was a good point, and it was very eloquent.
