Delegated Legislation: Exiting the European Union (Plant Health) (8 Oct 2019)

Susan Elan Jones: I have a quick question for the Minister. Many of us are very concerned about regulated plant material coming in from third countries via the EU. What will happen with the checking? Many of us are very concerned about what this could mean in terms of pests and diseases?

Thomas Cook (25 Sep 2019)

Susan Elan Jones: My constituents and many, many other constituents across the country have been affected by this awful situation. What I do not understand is the fact that this Government and the Opposition, and pretty much everyone, have recognised that we need new legislation. Why the heck do we have to wait for a new Queen’s Speech? Why can we not have emergency legislation next week?

Written Answers — Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Water Power (4 Sep 2019)

Susan Elan Jones: To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, whether his Department plans to develop deep-water turbines as a means of producing clean energy in the UK.

Election of Select Committee Chairs (Notice of Election): Sheep Farming: No-deal EU Exit (3 Sep 2019)

Susan Elan Jones: Does my hon. Friend agree that this is yet another example of privileged, idle old Etonians who could not care less about the lives and livelihoods of our working hill farmers in Wales and across the UK?

Summer Adjournment (25 Jul 2019)

Susan Elan Jones: It is a pleasure to follow all colleagues who have spoken in this debate. This year marks the 75th anniversary of the D-day landings in Normandy, and although many Members of the House—and, indeed, outside it—are far more qualified to speak on that issue than me, I wish to use my role as co-chair of the all-party group on charities and volunteering to thank those voluntary organisations...

Persecution of Christians Overseas (18 Jul 2019)

Susan Elan Jones: It is a great pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Croydon South (Chris Philp), who made a very thoughtful speech. Mention has been made of the hon. Members for Strangford (Jim Shannon), for Congleton (Fiona Bruce) and for Glasgow East (David Linden), and I want to thank them for requesting this debate and for their tireless campaigning work in this area. Above all, I think we would all...

20 Years of Devolution (11 Jul 2019)

Susan Elan Jones: It is a great pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Aberconwy (Guto Bebb), my hon. Friend the Member for Edinburgh South (Ian Murray) and other right hon. and hon. Members. This is the 20th anniversary of devolution, but it is a bit more than that really, because I refuse to believe that devolution started 20 years ago. There is a real history to it, and one thing I praise Plaid Cymru...

20 Years of Devolution (11 Jul 2019)

Susan Elan Jones: It is an intelligent contribution to the debate that we consider good policies, wherever they come from, on both sides of the border, in Scotland and, indeed, elsewhere in the world. We must not become insular. Thirdly, and this is especially true for those of us who fall in the social democratic or democratic socialist traditions, structural and constitutional devices are never an end in...

Universal Credit Fraud (10 Jul 2019)

Susan Elan Jones: This whole situation is immensely concerning. Can the Minister tell us the average and maximum amounts that victims of these scams have lost?

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Armed Forces Personnel (8 Jul 2019)

Susan Elan Jones: What recent assessment she has made of trends in the number of armed forces personnel.

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Armed Forces Personnel (8 Jul 2019)

Susan Elan Jones: In 2010, there were 30,000 more fully trained armed forces personnel than there are today. Does that concern the Minister and does it concern the Government, and if it does not, why not?

Sale of New Petrol and Diesel Cars and Vans: Assisted Dying (4 Jul 2019)

Susan Elan Jones: I am conscious that the late Lord Walton of Detchant spoke passionately on this subject. He was a great neuroscientist, but he was also president of the Muscular Dystrophy Campaign, one of the great disability organisations. He spoke and wrote at length on the issue of vulnerability: it is a massively difficult ethical issue, but it has to be considered.

Sale of New Petrol and Diesel Cars and Vans: Assisted Dying (4 Jul 2019)

Susan Elan Jones: I am most grateful to the hon. Gentleman for giving way during what is a heartfelt speech, but will he please answer the question of why he feels that the vast majority of disability organisations in this country remain opposed to assisted dying?

Business of the House (20 Jun 2019)

Susan Elan Jones: It is 10 years since the Pontcysyllte aqueduct and canal became a UNESCO world heritage site, thereby joining sites such as the Taj Mahal, the Great Barrier Reef and the Great Wall of China—although Pontcysyllte is of course superior to all of them. It was built in 13 years by those great civil engineers Thomas Telford and William Jessop, and has a height of 126 feet. One can go on it on a...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Seasonal Agricultural Workers Pilot Scheme (20 Jun 2019)

Susan Elan Jones: If he will hold discussions with the Home Secretary on increasing the limit on workers in the seasonal agricultural workers pilot scheme.

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Seasonal Agricultural Workers Pilot Scheme (20 Jun 2019)

Susan Elan Jones: Government Members seem to be obsessed with 31 October. That is a pity, because harvest is coming rather sooner, and I wish they would show a similar interest in that. The NFU has made it absolutely clear that we need a permanent, fully functioning system and that at least 10,000 new workers are required in this area. Why will the Government not act, and why will the Home Office not take...

Mineworkers’ Pension Scheme (10 Jun 2019)

Susan Elan Jones: My hon. Friend mentioned some of the disasters that mining communities have faced. I cannot but mention the Gresford disaster in north Wales in which my paternal grandfather lost his life. Clearly, there is a moral case for why the Government need to act on this, but there is also a really good financial case, because we are not talking about that much money. It really is imperative that they act.

Whitsun Adjournment: Excessive Speeding and Driving Bans (23 May 2019)

Susan Elan Jones: The Minister mentions the award from Brake, the road safety charity, and I pay tribute to the community of Overton in my constituency. There was a terrible road traffic incident, after which the community came together to campaign on this issue. I feel that this very important award belongs as much to my constituents as it does to me.

Whitsun Adjournment: Excessive Speeding and Driving Bans (23 May 2019)

Susan Elan Jones: The motion lapsed at an extremely convenient time, Madam Deputy Speaker, as I am now moving on to the second part of my speech. I turn to technology, and specifically what technology now makes possible. I believe that we can and should do a lot more to effectively utilise technological developments so that we reduce the number of driving offences and the causalities that result from them. I...

Whitsun Adjournment: Excessive Speeding and Driving Bans (23 May 2019)

Susan Elan Jones: The subject of my Adjournment debate—excessive speeding and driving bans—is very serious. I do not like reading out speeches, but this is a pretty technical issue and there are many factual points that I want to raise, so I apologise in advance that I will be doing a little more reading than I would like. I emphasise that this is an immensely serious issue of great concern around the...
