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?

Energy and Climate Change: Household Energy Bills (19 March 2015)

Susan Elan Jones: What steps he is taking to help households with their energy bills.

Energy and Climate Change: Household Energy Bills (19 March 2015)

Susan Elan Jones: The Ministers words will ring very hollow indeed in many of our rural communities, where people are off-grid and rely on domestic oil for heating. I ask the Minister not to quote what the price happens to be this week, because we know that, like gravity, domestic oil prices go up and down. Will she tell us why the Government have not listened to MPs from across the parties who have asked for...

Business of the House (12 March 2015)

Susan Elan Jones: The Leader of the House may be aware that Boris Johnson in his own inimitable way once said that he fought Clwyd South and that Clwyd South fought back, and he was helped in so doing by the Leader of the House. My constituents in Clwyd South are rather concerned because this time the Conservatives have selected a councillor, David Nicholls, who is a commercial lawyer of the royal borough of...

Business of the House (5 March 2015)

Susan Elan Jones: Some villages in Coedpoeth and Brymbo in my constituency face very large bills through no fault of their own because they have to fund remedial work resulting from historic lead contamination. This is an anomalous situation, as our law generally follows the principle that the polluter pays, but here there is no traceable polluter. Last year in Blanefield in Scotland, the UK Government reached...

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: EU Membership (4 March 2015)

Susan Elan Jones: I am intrigued. The Minister said earlier that businesses had told him various anti-EU things. Can he name a single business across the length and breadth of Wales—north, south, east or west—that has told him it would like Wales to leave the EU?

Opposition Day — [18th Allotted Day]: Members’ Paid Directorships and Consultancies (25 February 2015)

Susan Elan Jones: rose—

Opposition Day — [18th Allotted Day]: Members’ Paid Directorships and Consultancies (25 February 2015)

Susan Elan Jones: I am most grateful to the right hon. Gentleman for having finally given way. Sixty-seven thousand quid is roughly what a deputy head or a head teacher earns. Is he honestly saying that if they wanted to add to their great experience by holding directorships and did not turn up to teach the children very often, that would be okay?

Opposition Day — [18th Allotted Day]: Bankers’ Bonuses and the Banking Industry (25 February 2015)

Susan Elan Jones: My hon. Friend is being incredibly generous in giving way to Conservative Members, and I would like to quote another Conservative, albeit not a Member of this House. Kay Swinburne, an MEP for Wales, had this to say on the subject of the court case in Europe that the Government decided to contest with our money: “I can tell you there is not a single constituent I have met that actually...

Written Answers — Department for Energy and Climate Change: Biofuels (10 February 2015)

Susan Elan Jones: To ask the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change, with reference to his Department's report Life Cycle Impacts of Biomass Electricity in 2020, what assessment he has made of the implications for his policies of that report's conclusion that biomass requires significantly more energy input than other energy sources; and if he will make a statement.

Written Answers — Department for Energy and Climate Change: Biofuels (10 February 2015)

Susan Elan Jones: To ask the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change, with reference to his Department's report Life Cycle Impacts of Biomass Electricity in 2020, what assessment he has made of the implications of that report for the future of biomass energy in the UK; and if he will make a statement.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (4 February 2015)

Susan Elan Jones: They were elected by fewer than 15% of the public and their first elections cost 80 million: why will the Prime Minister not scrap these ridiculous police and crime commissioners and instead put the money into front-line policing that would keep our communities safe?

[Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] — Employment in Wales (27 January 2015)

Susan Elan Jones: It is interesting that the hon. Gentleman is posing as Mr Egalitarian between the public and private sectors. Is he not part of a Government party that spent millions of pounds of our money contesting a court case so that bankers in this country could get extra bonuses? Where does that put him? We are not talking about the difference between the public and private sectors when it comes to...
