Charities (Protection and Social Investment) Bill [Lords]: New Clause 1 — Appeals and applications to the Tribunal (26 Jan 2016)

Susan Elan Jones: It is a great pleasure to speak in today’s debate. We often have wonderful debates in this place about what Britishness is about and what our culture is about. I actually think that the voluntary sector in this country represents the best of British—that is, the best of English, Welsh, Scottish and Northern Irish. As politicians, we do not always say thank you, but our starting...

Charities (Protection and Social Investment) Bill [Lords]: New Clause 1 — Appeals and applications to the Tribunal (26 Jan 2016)

Susan Elan Jones: Surely the big problem that people had was that they did not like the idea of dodgy lobbyists giving money to dodgy politicians. It was not about victimising groups such as the Salvation Army. The hon. Member for Newark (Robert Jenrick) says that it was just the Badger Trust that was affected. If he had heard what the Countryside Alliance said at the all-party parliamentary group on civil...

Charities (Protection and Social Investment) Bill [Lords]: New Clause 1 — Appeals and applications to the Tribunal (26 Jan 2016)

Susan Elan Jones: I am slightly mystified by some of the comments about so-called political activity. We are talking about basic advocacy. We only have to go back to the end of the first world war to see the Royal British Legion campaigning for jobs for veterans and so on. We are not talking about party political campaigning. That is what the voluntary sector objected to in the 2014 Act.

Written Answers — Department for Culture, Media and Sport: Welsh Language (19 Jan 2016)

Susan Elan Jones: To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport, what steps he is taking to improve access to Welsh subtitling for learners and people with accessibility needs.

Written Answers — Wales Office: Welsh Language: Hearing Impairment (18 Jan 2016)

Susan Elan Jones: To ask the Secretary of State for Wales, if he will meet the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport to discuss access to Welsh subtitling for learners and people with accessibility needs.

Business of the House (14 Jan 2016)

Susan Elan Jones: The Leader of the House will be aware that the Welsh Grand Committee meets from time to time. Indeed, I think he appeared in front of it in Wrexham once. He will therefore be aware that any time the Committee meets in Wales, its members may make representations and speak in either English or Welsh. However, when the Committee meets in a Committee Room in this place, its members are permitted...

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: S4C: Funding (13 Jan 2016)

Susan Elan Jones: What complete waffle from the Minister! The Tory party manifesto said only last spring that that party was committed in government to safeguarding “the funding and editorial independence of S4C”, yet now we are talking of a cut from the DCMS budget of a quarter of its funding. [Interruption.] The Secretary of State is asking for my question. It is simply this: why will the...

Petitions: Park and Ride Scheme on Bathampton Meadows (6 Jan 2016)

Susan Elan Jones: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. A couple of hours ago I was informed by email that HSBC was proposing to close branches in Ruabon and in Chirk, which is in my constituency. We have, of course, seen many such bank closures, especially since the Government changed their policy of working with banks to keep the last branch in every community open. Can you tell me, Mr Speaker, whether any...

Future Funding for S4C (5 Jan 2016)

Susan Elan Jones: Will the Minister give way?

Future Funding for S4C (5 Jan 2016)

Susan Elan Jones: We really have not come here for a bedtime story with examples of what S4C does. Will the Minister please tell us why he is not listening to his colleagues and other Members? Why will he not sort out the real issue, which is the funding?

Saudi Arabia (5 Jan 2016)

Susan Elan Jones: I think that most of us would agree that last week’s dreadful executions in Saudi Arabia reinforced the case for a global abolition of the death penalty. Does the Minister agree that it is vital that our democratic allies in the west also adhere to that? Will he strongly make the case to Americans in the southern states of the US, many of whom have a deep concern for religious freedom,...

Access to Justice: Wales (15 Dec 2015)

Susan Elan Jones: There might be some validity in that, but how does the Minister square it with the rise of litigants in person? We may well see the well-heeled being able to get the best legal advice in the world, while those on the other side of the dock have to represent themselves in person. Surely that is not fair.

Access to Justice: Wales (15 Dec 2015)

Susan Elan Jones: It is a great pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mrs Moon. I am conscious of something that George Bernard Shaw once said. He apologised for writing a long note because he had not had time to write a short note. I fear I have written rather a long note, but I know you will keep me to delivering a short speech. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Swansea East (Carolyn Harris)...

Access to Justice: Wales (15 Dec 2015)

Susan Elan Jones: But I am sure the Minister will speak of the grave omissions in his Government’s policy.

Spending Review and Autumn Statement: Wales (15 Dec 2015)

Susan Elan Jones: The Minister seems to have forgotten a line from his party’s general election manifesto, which said that if elected, his party would safeguard the funding and editorial independence of S4C. How does he square that commitment with what happened in the comprehensive spending review?

Spending Review and Autumn Statement: Wales (15 Dec 2015)

Susan Elan Jones: Does the Minister think that Jobs Growth Wales is a pet project of the Welsh Government?

Pavement Parking (Protection of Vulnerable Pedestrians) Bill (4 Dec 2015)

Susan Elan Jones: Mine will be but a short contribution to the debate. I would like to put on record the thanks of very many Members to the hon. Member for North Dorset (Simon Hoare) for bringing forward this Bill and raising an incredibly important issue that affects the day-to-day lives of so many people, especially those who are blind or have visual disabilities. I have received representations from a...

Charities (Protection and Social Investment) Bill [Lords] (3 Dec 2015)

Susan Elan Jones: rose—

Charities (Protection and Social Investment) Bill [Lords] (3 Dec 2015)

Susan Elan Jones: It is a great pleasure to take part in the debate on this Bill. I want to make a few points. I think many people welcome the fact that the Government are taking action to prevent individuals who are unfit to become charity trustees from doing so and are tackling abuse and mismanagement of charities more effectively. However, I have a few questions over some details. There is widespread...

Charities (Protection and Social Investment) Bill [Lords] (3 Dec 2015)

Susan Elan Jones: May I make a quick point? Not many people will be aware—I myself was not until about six months ago—that every charity in Scotland is registered with the regulatory body, whereas in England and Wales many of the smaller charities are not. I think that that is of relevance to the wider debate, and I wonder whether the hon. Gentleman has a view on the matter.
