Oral Answers to Questions — Innovation, Universities and Skills: Careers Advice (Adults) (26 Jul 2007)

Nia Griffith: Given that 30 years on from equal pay legislation, many young women, particularly those from vulnerable backgrounds, still gravitate towards training and job opportunities that tend to limit their future potential earning capacity—particularly when compared with their male counterparts—what steps will my right hon. Friend take, along with right hon. and hon. Friends from other...

Public Bill Committee: Child Maintenance and Other Payments Bill (17 Jul 2007)

Nia Griffith: I should like to ask two questions. First, if a significant reduction in numbers is required, how do you propose to handle that? Secondly, to what time scale are we working for both the transfer of staff and the training programmes?

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Neighbourhood Policing (4 Jul 2007)

Nia Griffith: What recent discussions he has had with the Home Secretary on neighbourhood policing levels in Wales; and if he will make a statement.

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Neighbourhood Policing (4 Jul 2007)

Nia Griffith: Will the Minister join me in congratulating the neighbourhood policing teams in my constituency and across Wales? They are not only making our streets safer through high-profile policing, but are working together with agencies such as the county council and Communities First to tackle the causes of crime and are developing things such as the multiball centres in Llwynhendy and the Morfa. Will...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: European Affairs (20 Jun 2007)

Nia Griffith: At this point of the debate, hon. Members have already made many valid points. I welcomed the opening remarks of my right hon. Friend the Foreign Secretary, in which she outlined the areas that should remain the concern of individual nations. She also mentioned areas on which there is already EU co-operation. I do not wish to repeat the excellent clarification of the situation given by my...

Nia Griffith: What discussions he has had with Cabinet colleagues on Government support for a reappraisal of the options for generating electricity from the tidal flow in the Severn estuary.

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Severn Estuary (Electricity) (6 Jun 2007)

Nia Griffith: Will my right hon. Friend seek commitments from UK Cabinet and Assembly colleagues to ensure that Welsh universities have the support to enable them to develop sustainable technologies—such as those harnessing wave, tidal or river current energy—in order to generate electricity and to help bring research and development jobs and manufacturing jobs to Wales?

[John Bercow in the Chair] — Human Trafficking (24 May 2007)

Nia Griffith: How do I follow my hon. Friend the Member for Hendon (Mr. Dismore), with his inimitable ability to say an enormous amount in a very short space of time, and the hon. Member for Totnes (Mr. Steen), who made a valuable contribution as well? I shall try not to repeat too much of what has been said. This is a wonderful opportunity to debate a very important report, and I welcome the fact that...

[John Bercow in the Chair] — Human Trafficking (24 May 2007)

Nia Griffith: Indeed, I shall come to that when I talk about the action plan. We need to raise awareness. It is very important that as many people in society as possible are aware, because information can be disseminated that way. As the hon. Gentleman pointed out, it is not necessarily that easy for the victims to know immediately to whom they should turn. We need to broaden our approach through teachers...

[John Bercow in the Chair] — Human Trafficking (24 May 2007)

Nia Griffith: Does the hon. Gentleman agree that only six countries have ratified the convention? I think that the Minister for Women and Equality was referring to the fact that we are one of the 28 countries that have signed up to it.

Public Bill Committee: Sustainable Communities Bill: Schedule (23 May 2007)

Nia Griffith: I will speak about the comparisons between new clauses 7 and 5. Importantly, we are all trying to pull in the same direction and we should focus on what is comparable between the two and how much   overlap there is. I am extremely lucky in coming from Wales, where we have a closer relationship with the Assembly Government than is possible for a wider community such as England. I have...

Public Bill Committee: Sustainable Communities Bill: Schedule (23 May 2007)

Nia Griffith: How is it that in the wording of new clause 7, we have the term “consult all principal councils”, but clearly in new clause 5 we have the idea that the principal councils make the proposals? As I understand it, new clause 5 is much stronger in giving a bottom-up approach than new clause 7. Why does the hon. Gentleman think that new clause 7 removes the fuzz, and the bad reputation...

Public Bill Committee: Sustainable Communities Bill: Clause 13 (23 May 2007)

Nia Griffith: Does the right hon. Gentleman not agree that a considerable amount of time and effort has been put in on this and the work by the Department shows a tremendous commitment?It would be most inappropriate to suggest that that commitment does not exist. Would he not like to respond to that by giving some sort of trust in return?

Points of Order: Housing (16 May 2007)

Nia Griffith: It makes tremendous sense for the provision of information to be the responsibility of the seller. We all know of cases where houses remain on the market for ages while prospective buyer after prospective buyer pays for the same information, discovering features that make the property undesirable or unrealistically priced. The onus on the seller to provide a home information pack and an...

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Royal Naval Armaments Depot Llangennech (21 Mar 2007)

Nia Griffith: MOD Llangennech—locally known as the RN—has been an integral part of the community for several generations. What assurance can my right hon. Friend give that if the MOD leaves Llangennech and the site is disposed of, full consideration will be given to making part of it a community facility, as well as providing the maximum possible support for those who may lose their jobs after...

[Mr. Mike Weir in the Chair] — Coroners' System and Death Certification (8 Mar 2007)

Nia Griffith: It gives me great pleasure to speak in the debate. I very much welcome the draft Bill and the draft charter for bereaved people who come into contact with the coroner service. Those who lose a family member or close friend are in a state of shock, but in addition to coping with the trauma of that loss, they must often also deal for the first time with procedures of which they have no personal...
