Petition - Ruabon Station (5 Dec 2017)

Susan Elan Jones: My petition concerns the urgent need for greater accessibility of Ruabon station. The petition states: The petition of residents of the village of Ruabon in the constituency of Clwyd South, Declares that Ruabon railway station is currently inaccessible to a number of potential users as the only method of using platform 2 is by crossing a footbridge which is difficult for passengers with...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: “Creation of UK-wide frameworks (4 Dec 2017)

Susan Elan Jones: Would the hon. Gentleman like to explain to the House why he was opposed to Wales having full law-making powers in 2011?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: “Creation of UK-wide frameworks (4 Dec 2017)

Susan Elan Jones: Does my hon. Friend agree that in Wales devolution actually came in two tranches—in 1997, but also in 2011, when Wales voted overwhelmingly for full law-making powers—and that any rolling back of those powers would be simply unacceptable and anti-Welsh in the extreme?

Backbench Business: Rural Economy of Wales (28 Nov 2017)

Susan Elan Jones: It is a great pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Hollobone. Congratulations are very much in order for the hon. Member for Ceredigion (Ben Lake), the Member for the Welsh midlands—I like the sound of that. I am not sure what the comparative term would be for Members from north Wales; I think we will stick to north Wales. [Interruption.] My right hon. Friend the Member for...

Backbench Business: Rural Economy of Wales (28 Nov 2017)

Susan Elan Jones: That is a wonderful idea. I would also like to mention the Welsh Government’s rural development programme. It has been innovative, with support for food, timber and other businesses, as well as farm business grants and even a micro small business fund. Many companies in my constituency, and other areas, have benefited, and I welcome the diversity of projects it provides.

Backbench Business: Rural Economy of Wales (28 Nov 2017)

Susan Elan Jones: The hon. Gentleman always puts it so well in his own way, does he not? The points my good colleague Baroness Morgan made referred to the need for development programmes in specific areas. In the same way as we speak of the north Wales deal, I think she was thinking of something dedicated specifically to certain parts of west Wales. I think that the hon. Gentleman is being a bit mischievous in...

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (23 Nov 2017)

Susan Elan Jones: It is a great pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Stafford (Jeremy Lefroy). I want to agree with the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government on one thing. In his great peroration, he said how proud he was to have been born British. I, too, am very proud to have been born British. In fact, I am doubly blessed, of course, because I was born Welsh as well as British.

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (23 Nov 2017)

Susan Elan Jones: Yes, from north Wales—even better. [Laughter.] In all seriousness, one of the reasons why I feel so proud to have been born in this country is that I know the quality of our public servants across this country—the people who teach in our schools, the people who work in our hospitals, our firefighters and our police—who go above and beyond to serve us every day and right...

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (23 Nov 2017)

Susan Elan Jones: The right hon. Gentleman speaks about action. Why are the Government not taking action on developers who sit on land? The Chancellor spoke yesterday about a consultation, but we all know what needs to happen, so why do they not just do it?

Opposition Day - [4TH Allotted Day]: Armed Forces Pay (1 Nov 2017)

Susan Elan Jones: It is a great pleasure to take part in this debate today—and of course a great pleasure to speak after the hon. Member for Aldershot (Leo Docherty), not least because it means that his speech has come to an end. On a more serious note, as the hon. Gentleman would say, in 11 days’ time all of us will be standing around our local cenotaphs. One thing that moves me greatly is...

Proportional Representation — [James Gray in the Chair] (30 Oct 2017)

Susan Elan Jones: It is a great pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Sir Roger. As an abstract principle, tactical voting is nonsense, but there is one exception to that great rule, which is when people happen to vote in Clwyd South as they did in this year’s general election. It was quite magnificent, because as well as talking to those who were unsure how to vote, much of my time was spent...

Proportional Representation — [James Gray in the Chair] (30 Oct 2017)

Susan Elan Jones: If preferential voting is such a rubbish system, why does the Conservative party elect its leaders in that way?

Backbench Business Committee: International Freedom of Religion or Belief Day — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (26 Oct 2017)

Susan Elan Jones: It is a great pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Gray. I pay great tribute to the hon. Member for Strangford (Jim Shannon), who is a doughty and tireless campaigner on this issue. He deserves great credit for all his work and campaigning on it and the way in which he raises it constantly in Parliament and beyond. Religious freedom is the right to believe in something or nothing....

Backbench Business Committee: International Freedom of Religion or Belief Day — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (26 Oct 2017)

Susan Elan Jones: I am most grateful to the Minister for his reassurance. Finally, I wish you, Mr Gray, and every Member here a very happy International Freedom of Religion or Belief Day tomorrow. I fear it will not be quite so happy for the many people who face persecution around the world, but it is our job to continue to take up this cause.

Social Care: Supported Housing (25 Oct 2017)

Susan Elan Jones: Optimism and positivity: I really hope that is what we get from the Government next week. I really hope they commit to dealing with the funding gap and the details of this proposal. I welcome the metaphorical rabbit that was pulled out of the Prime Minister’s metaphorical hat this morning, but I have to say it is a great shame that it took almost two years for it to happen. There has...

Social Care: Supported Housing (25 Oct 2017)

Susan Elan Jones: Very much so. I am grateful to the hon. Gentleman for that intervention. I recommend the Salvation Army report and I believe the Government should answer fully all the points made in it. Many Members will remember eight years ago a gentleman by the name of David Cameron—he subsequently became Prime Minister—giving the Hugo Young memorial lecture. In his speech, he committed to...

Assaults on Emergency Workers (Offences) Bill (20 Oct 2017)

Susan Elan Jones: It is a great privilege to speak in this important debate. I want to place on record my thanks to my hon. Friend the Member for Halifax (Holly Lynch) for all her campaigning and the detail in which she spoke this morning on issues such as spitting and why this change in the law is important for those issues. I also thank my Welsh hon. Friend the Member for Rhondda (Chris Bryant) for his...

Royal Mail Delivery Office Closures — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (11 Oct 2017)

Susan Elan Jones: I congratulate my hon. Friend on securing the debate. She speaks of distance. Does she agree that there will be a massive problem across rural Britain if this goes ahead? Royal Mail is supposed to be here to serve us, but on this it is not doing so.

Petition - Bangor-on-Dee Post Office (13 Sep 2017)

Susan Elan Jones: I rise to present this petition about Bangor-on-Dee Post Office. I really hope that the Government and the Post Office will take note of what is happening here and in other rural communities right around the country. The petition states: The Petition of residents of Clwyd South, Declares that Bangor-on-Dee Post Office is a central part of the community and that the services it offers are...
