Ukraine and Georgia (15 May 2024)

Public Procurement (13 May 2024)

Nia Griffith: Labour Members will not be opposing the regulations, which provide the detail needed for the Procurement Act to come into effect later this year.

For those...

That gives...

National Grid: Pylons — [Mrs Pauline Latham in the Chair] ( 2 May 2024)

Nia Griffith: I congratulate the hon. Member for Boston and Skegness (Matt Warman) on securing this debate.

National Grid: Pylons — [Mrs Pauline Latham in the Chair] ( 2 May 2024)

Nia Griffith: On that point, the hon. Gentleman may want to note that the Welsh Labour Government have opened a review and are instructing an independent advisory body to look into the potential of underground cabling. I gently point out to the hon. Gentleman that we have a far more comprehensive view of issues on this side and he might like to acknowledge that.

Port Talbot Steelworks (30 Apr 2024)

Nia Griffith: With the closure of the coke ovens making the viable lifespan of the blast furnaces all the more precarious, and the electric arc furnace still being a long way off, we will rapidly reach a situation where Port Talbot can no longer supply the Trostre works in Llanelli in my constituency, so what talks has the Secretary of State had with Tata bosses about securing high-quality interim supplies...

I also thank our fantastic ally, our hon. Friend the Member for Brent Central (Dawn Butler), for all that she does—for the pertinent points she makes about supporting the whole LGBT community and for all the work she has...

Lesbian Visibility Week (25 Apr 2024)

Nia Griffith: As my hon. Friend the Member for Brent Central has said, there is real need to approach these things in a calm and appropriate way, and to respect everybody’s different ways of manifesting their humanity. What for me is very telling is the fact that I came out when my relationship broke up. It is almost impossible to hide grief. It is ironic that, having spent a considerable period not...
