Parliamentary Constituencies (Amendment) Bill: Committee Stage (19 Jun 2018)

Susan Elan Jones: Has my hon. Friend observed that there has been absolutely no word from the Government that they intend to cut the number of Ministers? What they are actually doing is proportionately increasing the size of the Executive as well.

Medicinal Cannabis (18 Jun 2018)

Susan Elan Jones: It seems to some of us that the biggest problem with the legalisation of this drug is the fact that it is called “cannabis”. Some of us share the Government’s view that cannabis should not be legalised for recreational use, but this is a totally different situation. While there is delay, children and adults are in serious suffering and, in some cases, may die. Given that...

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: North Wales Growth Deal (13 Jun 2018)

Susan Elan Jones: What recent discussions he has had with the north Wales economic ambition board on the progress of the north Wales growth deal.

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: North Wales Growth Deal (13 Jun 2018)

Susan Elan Jones: North Wales has a thriving voluntary sector and some excellent social enterprises. What engagement are Ministers in the Wales Office having with them?

Rural Crime and Public Services (6 Jun 2018)

Susan Elan Jones: It is a great pleasure to follow the very thoughtful speech of the hon. Member for Sleaford and North Hykeham (Dr Johnson) and the other very thoughtful speeches in this debate. I very much welcome the fact that our Opposition Front-Bench team has chosen to hold this debate on rural crime and public services. Those of us who represent rural constituencies welcome the fact that many people...

Rural Crime and Public Services (6 Jun 2018)

Susan Elan Jones: Yes, I agree wholeheartedly with the hon. Gentleman; it is animal abuse, it is cruelty and it needs to be stamped out. The punishment needs to fit the crime in those areas. A couple of years ago I held an Adjournment debate in this House on rural crime, in which I highlighted the work of a local initiative—a rural crime mapping scheme—in the wards of Esclusham and Ponciau in my...

Rural Crime and Public Services (6 Jun 2018)

Susan Elan Jones: I agree with every word my hon. Friend said. Let me give a couple of examples. In north Wales, a biker was recently clocked doing 138 mph on the single-lane carriageway A5. For that he got fines, plus a grand total of a 90-day ban. Chillingly, a newspaper report spoke of photographs of the defendant riding towards a triangular sign warning of a pedestrian crossing 250 yards ahead of him. That...

Rural Crime and Public Services (6 Jun 2018)

Susan Elan Jones: Does the Minister accept that speeding on rural roads is an horrific problem? Is there anything in the strategy on that, because it really is devastating at the moment?

Rural Crime and Public Services (6 Jun 2018)

Susan Elan Jones: I am delighted that my hon. Friend is making a really, really powerful speech that will resonate in many of our rural communities. I know that she will want to pay tribute to the great work of organisations such as Farm Watch. Those of us in rural areas are not scared of voluntary action working alongside statutory services, but where we do get angry is when there is not enough neighbourhood...

Fur Trade — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (4 Jun 2018)

Susan Elan Jones: My hon. Friend is being very generous in the time he is giving people. Does he agree that, 20 years or so ago when the ban was brought in, absolutely nobody would have thought there would be such a market for the import of animal fur, and it is vital we toughen the legislation on that?

Plastic Bottles and Coffee Cups (17 May 2018)

Susan Elan Jones: It is a great pleasure to take part in this debate and to follow the hon. Member for Mid Derbyshire (Mrs Latham) and other colleagues. It was an email from a constituent that I received in either the latter part of 2010 or the early part of 2011 that first made me think about this issue. It came just in advance of the Welsh Government’s introduction of a 5p levy on plastic bags. For...

Plastic Bottles and Coffee Cups (17 May 2018)

Susan Elan Jones: Glasses and glass carafes are very environmentally friendly, but my hon. Friend’s comments are of course very interesting, as ever. I wish to make a serious plea. The hon. Member for Windsor (Adam Afriyie) referred to the glass bottle scheme of the 1970s and 1980s, and how we all enjoyed collecting extra pennies by returning glass bottles. Around that time, probably in the 1970s, it...

Gaming Machines (17 May 2018)

Susan Elan Jones: I am pleased to add my congratulations to the Minister, my hon. Friend the Member for Swansea East (Carolyn Harris) and the other campaigners. The Minister mentioned the devolved Administrations. Can she assure me that there have been conversations with the Welsh Government? It would be truly awful if this measure did not apply at the same time and in the same way in Wales, through the Wales...

Oral Answers to Questions — Cabinet Office: Public Life: Intimidation (16 May 2018)

Susan Elan Jones: People who intimidate those in public life are thugs, wherever they are on the political spectrum. Can the Minister tell us what he proposes to do about the Daily Mail calling several of his colleagues “traitors” when they spoke up with their views on Brexit?

Sainsbury and Asda Merger (30 Apr 2018)

Susan Elan Jones: Does the Minister think that this is a good deal or a bad deal for British farming?

Petition - Park Rangers in Wrexham County Borough Council (18 Apr 2018)

Susan Elan Jones: I rise to present the petition of residents in Cefn Mawr in Clwyd South. First, let me say a special thank you to the tireless campaigners of Cefn branch Labour party, who have collected many signatures to save our wonderful park rangers service and protect the beautiful Ty Mawr country park. The petition of residents of Cefn Mawr in Clwyd South, Declares that nature parks are an important...

Leaving the Eu: Scotland and Wales Continuity Bills (18 Apr 2018)

Susan Elan Jones: The Minister says he is hopeful. The Minister says he is heartened. Why can the Minister not actually be helpful and recognise that in Wales we now have a reserved powers model? We know perfectly well that agriculture, for instance, is to be decided in Wales. Why on earth can he not recognise that and why are the Government seeking to pick a fight with the Welsh people? Why do they not just...

Military Action Overseas: Parliamentary Approval: Anti-Semitism (17 Apr 2018)

Susan Elan Jones: Will the Secretary of State give way?

Military Action Overseas: Parliamentary Approval: Anti-Semitism (17 Apr 2018)

Susan Elan Jones: In 15 or 16 countries across continental Europe, holocaust denial is a crime. In Germany, I believe, sentences can go up to 5 years. Does the Secretary of State think there is a case for reviewing the law in this country?

Syria: Syria (16 Apr 2018)

Susan Elan Jones: Does my hon. Friend agree that it is not just in the large urban areas that people care about suffering and that the same welcome would be there in our smaller communities, our rural communities and our small towns? There is a welcome there, too. I believe that the people in this country are deeply, deeply compassionate. That may not always be the case in the abstract, in terms of concepts...
