Identity and Language (Northern Ireland) Bill [Lords]: Clause 12 - Short title (26 Hyd 2022)

Colum Eastwood: This Bill is a very welcome development. It is not the Irish language Act that we would have liked to see, but it is an important step on the way to recognising that the Irish language is a key part of the identity of many people in our community, and that has to be recognised in law. I am also sorrowful that this was not done in the place where it should have been done. People should be...

Identity and Language (Northern Ireland) Bill [Lords]: Clause 1 - National and cultural identity (26 Hyd 2022)

Colum Eastwood: I understand that, but I think that it is important to put this point on the record. We have heard talk about Sinn Féin this and Sinn Féin that, so will the Minister maybe take the opportunity to put it on the record that people who love the Irish language do not necessarily vote for Sinn Féin? It is a language that has been embraced by people from right across our community; it is not a...

Identity and Language (Northern Ireland) Bill [Lords]: Clause 1 - National and cultural identity (26 Hyd 2022)

Colum Eastwood: I am grateful to the right hon. Member for giving way, but will he bring a little clarity to some of his remarks? He said that DUP Members would return to the issue. He is entitled to his opinion and position on any issue, but we already have no Government in Northern Ireland because of the DUP’s stance on the protocol—we will not debate that today. What exactly is the right hon. Member...

Identity and Language (Northern Ireland) Bill [Lords]: Clause 1 - National and cultural identity (26 Hyd 2022)

Colum Eastwood: I thank the hon. Member for giving me a useful opportunity to make this point. The hon. Member for North Antrim (Ian Paisley) talked about embracing diversity. That is wonderful language. In Derry, since we got rid of the old Derry Corporation, we got proper democracy into local government after the civil rights movement, and we have been embracing diversity in Derry. We have all the old...

Identity and Language (Northern Ireland) Bill [Lords]: Clause 1 - National and cultural identity (26 Hyd 2022)

Colum Eastwood: I congratulate the hon. Member on being called to speak early in the debate. Does he accept that it is not just Sinn Féin that cares about the Irish language or the protection of minority languages and cultures?

Identity and Language (Northern Ireland) Bill [Lords] (12 Hyd 2022)

Colum Eastwood: Will the hon. Lady give way?

Identity and Language (Northern Ireland) Bill [Lords] (12 Hyd 2022)

Colum Eastwood: I am glad to see the Secretary of State implementing these key parts of New Decade, New Approach. Of course, other commitments within that agreement could not be delivered even when we had an Executive. There was a key commitment for 10,000 students at Magee University in Derry. The right hon. Member for Skipton and Ripon (Julian Smith) agreed that we could have a medical school at Magee,...

Written Answers — Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Fuel Oil: Northern Ireland (10 Hyd 2022)

Colum Eastwood: To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, whether his Department held discussions with representatives of the heating oil sector in Northern Ireland when devising energy bills schemes to help tackle the cost of living crisis.

Written Answers — Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Fuel Oil: Northern Ireland (28 Med 2022)

Colum Eastwood: To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, what assessment his Department has made of the impact of price increases for home heating oil on consumers in Northern Ireland.

Tributes to Her Late Majesty The Queen ( 9 Med 2022)

Colum Eastwood: The warm tributes that have already been paid to Queen Elizabeth II by hon. and right hon. Members tell their own story about the great respect and deep affection that so many from such diverse and different backgrounds had for her—an affection and respect that transcend mere political difference and speak to her position as a leader and an example of public service. As others have said,...

Prime Minister: Engagements ( 7 Med 2022)

Colum Eastwood: The Prime Minister should know by now that many people in the north of Ireland are starving and freezing in their homes. We need a tailored solution for Northern Ireland, but that is much harder to achieve because the Democratic Unionist party is refusing to form a Government at Stormont. The new Prime Minister has a choice to make: she can either be on the side of the DUP or on the side of...

Northern Ireland Protocol Bill: New Clause 12 - Adjudications of matters pertaining to international law (20 Gor 2022)

Colum Eastwood: I promise to be brief, because we have heard a lot over the last number of days and we have heard a lot repeated as well. The Bill clearly and blatantly breaks international law. It breaks an agreement that the Government made with the European Union and that was trumpeted to the electorate as a fantastic deal. I think the Bill will end up going the same way as the Prime Minister.

Northern Ireland Protocol Bill: New Clause 12 - Adjudications of matters pertaining to international law (20 Gor 2022)

Colum Eastwood: I will not. Sit down! This Bill is a sop to the DUP and a campaigning tool for the Foreign Secretary in the Conservative party leadership election. If it is driven through, the only likely outcome is a trade dispute with the European Union. Well, good luck to the next Prime Minister if they want to go into the general election with prices going even higher than they already are. I have heard...

Northern Ireland Protocol Bill: Clause 13 - Implementation, application, supervision and enforcement of the Protocol (20 Gor 2022)

Colum Eastwood: Can the Minister point out the line, paragraph and page of the Good Friday agreement that he is quoting? This does not make any sense.

Northern Ireland Protocol Bill: Clause 13 - Implementation, application, supervision and enforcement of the Protocol (20 Gor 2022)

Colum Eastwood: Despite what the right hon. Member has been saying, I am very grateful to him for giving way. I know that he is a new convert to supporting the Good Friday agreement; in fact, he left the talks before they were concluded and then opposed the Good Friday agreement from the outset. That is fine—that is his right—but I wonder whether he can explain what version of Brexit can get this...
