Business of the House: English Votes on English Laws (2 July 2015)

Susan Elan Jones: It is something of an irony that this announcement is made today when the first item of business was the Transport for London Bill. Under the new proposals, who would vote on that? Would my hon. Friend the Member for Llanelli (Nia Griffith)be precluded from doing so while the hon. Member for Morecambe and Lunesdale (David Morris),whose constituency is rather further away, could vote on it?...

[Mr David Crausby in the Chair] — English Votes for English Laws and North Wales (1 July 2015)

Susan Elan Jones: This is an important subject. Does my hon. Friend agree that there are many types of devolution? He talks about English devolution. Once upon a time, I served as a borough councillor in London and I think the emphasis there would be on London-wide devolution, with virtually no interest in English devolution. Does he also agree with his predecessor, the late, great Cledwyn Hughes, who spoke of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Business, Innovation and Skills: Topical Questions (30 June 2015)

Susan Elan Jones: The Secretary of State will be aware of the great concern about the Government’s failure to meet export targets.

BBC Investment (East and West Midlands) (23 June 2015)

Susan Elan Jones: It is a great pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Ms Dorries. I thank the hon. Member for Sherwood (Mark Spencer) for securing what has been a passionate and committed debate.

I thank my hon. Friends...

BBC Investment (East and West Midlands) (23 June 2015)

Susan Elan Jones: There are major issues to be looked at, and we believe that that needs to happen in this debate on the BBC charter. It is not a little opt-out alone; the debate is much too important for that. The BBC has recognised that there is a disparity. When Tony Hall become director-general in 2013, he visited the Mailbox and announced additional investment. In particular, the focus on training and...

BBC Investment (East and West Midlands) (23 June 2015)

Susan Elan Jones: I do not think that there is time, unfortunately. I would love to, though. A year and a half is not long for an important debate. In recognition of that, the Culture Secretary’s report even floated the option of extending the existing charter for a year. We think that this time the Government should hand their homework in on time. They should not leave it all to the last minute and then...

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Welsh Government Funding (17 June 2015)

Susan Elan Jones: The Secretary of State may be aware that my constituency had the terrible news yesterday that Dobson & Crowther in Llangollen had gone into administration. Will he assure me that he will work with the Welsh Government on that? Does he agree that the 50 million of in-year cuts to the Welsh Government’s budget that the Chancellor has brought in are a very bad thing and that we...

Oral Answers to Questions — Culture, Media and Sport: Welsh Language and Culture (4 June 2015)

Susan Elan Jones: Diolch yn fawr, Llywydd. The Government’s handling of the finance and governance of S4C during the previous Parliament was an unmitigated disaster. They failed to listen to any elected representatives in Wales, failed to listen to Wales’s excellent Welsh language campaigning organisations, and even failed to listen to the channel S4C itself. It could not possibly be any worse, so...

Fifa: Britain in the World (1 June 2015)

Susan Elan Jones: It is a great privilege to be elected again to serve the constituency of Clwyd South in this Chamber. It has been a delight to listen to so many maiden speeches, including those of my hon. Friend the Member for St Helens North (Conor McGinn) and of the hon. Member for Berwick-upon-Tweed (Mrs Trevelyan), who may indeed represent the most beautiful constituency in England. There were many,...

Amendment of the Law (19 March 2015)

Susan Elan Jones: It is a great privilege to speak in this Budget debate and to follow all the previous speakers, who have passionately expressed their views. I want to pay particular tribute to my right hon. Friends the shadow Chancellor and the Leader of the Opposition, who spoke thoughtfully and in great depth, sharing their vision of how our country can and should be better, and describing how this...

Amendment of the Law (19 March 2015)

Susan Elan Jones: I agree with my hon. Friend that that is a hugely important issue. In my area there are many businesses waiting to be born that will never even reach gestation, simply because we do not give enough practical help to would-be entrepreneurs. The more than 5 million working people in our country who are self-employed face huge problems. Two thirds have no pension, and one in five cannot get a...

Energy and Climate Change: Fiscal Responsibility and Fairness (19 March 2015)

Susan Elan Jones: The Chief Secretary to the Treasury may be aware of a popular television programme in this country called “Pointless”—it would be unkind of me to use the same description about him, so I will not. Can he say in one short sentence what exactly was the point of what he has said today, apart from pacifying some of his colleagues?
