Menai Suspension Bridge: Impact of Closure (1 Nov 2022)

Jonathan Edwards: I congratulate the hon. Lady on securing this debate; this is a vital issue, and it is right and proper that it is addressed and discussed in this House. Does she support the words of Anglesey or Ynys Môn council, which is asking drivers travelling to the mainland not to go off the A55 at Gaerwen and take the shortcut, because it is creating more problems at a pinch point nearer the bridge...

UK Infrastructure Bank Bill [Lords] (1 Nov 2022)

Jonathan Edwards: It is a pleasure to contribute to the debate, and to make a very short speech about the sort of projects that I hope the UK Infrastructure Bank will support. Given that we are talking about more than £20 billion, I am surprised that a great many Members of Parliament are not making specific bids. However, I will make the best of the time available to me. This bank was created to replace the...

Avian Influenza (1 Nov 2022)

Jonathan Edwards: The Minister said in his reply to the shadow Minister that there was close co-ordination with the devolved Administration, and he has made that point repeatedly during the debate. However, the Rural Affairs Minister said in the Senedd last week when answering questions that she had had no contact with the previous Secretary of State and had written only to the new one. Perhaps that is not...

Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill (25 Oct 2022)

Jonathan Edwards: As usual, my hon. and learned Friend is making a forensic speech. She will be interested to learn that more than 10,000 people marched for independence in Cardiff recently. I never thought that that would happen in my lifetime, but it is happening because of Bills like this. The people of Wales are seeing the British Government supplanting the devolution settlement, and are concluding that...

Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill (25 Oct 2022)

Jonathan Edwards: I am sure the hon. Member will realise that some of us are less happy than she is about this approach. Would it not be better for the British Government to bring forward alternative proposals on a sector-by-sector basis, as the shadow Secretary of State, the hon. Member for Stalybridge and Hyde (Jonathan Reynolds), said in his remarks, and then the whole House can discuss and scrutinise...

Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill (25 Oct 2022)

Jonathan Edwards: Is the hon. Gentleman aware of the Institute for Government’s view that the time between now and the date of the sunset clause is completely insufficient, so Parliaments and the Government will be consumed with trying to replicate those laws by 2023?

Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill (25 Oct 2022)

Jonathan Edwards: The right hon. Gentleman will of course accept that the Welsh Government have similar concerns to those of the Scottish Government. The Welsh Government are run by the Labour party, which is a Unionist party. Indeed, the Counsel General of the Welsh Government, Mick Antoniw, has said: “As currently drafted, this legislation could see UK Government Ministers given unfettered authority to...

Wales: Cost of Living Rise (19 Oct 2022)

Jonathan Edwards: What discussions he has had with the Chancellor of the Exchequer on helping people in Wales with the rising cost of living.

Wales: Cost of Living Rise (19 Oct 2022)

Jonathan Edwards: People in Carmarthenshire who are off the gas grid have seen huge increases in heating costs—for oil, LPG and solid fuels. The alternative fuel payment of £100 does not seem to be equivalent to the cap for gas. Will the Minister write to Welsh MPs outlining the methodology used by the British Government to calculate the AFP rate?

Written Answers — Ministry of Justice: Victims' Commissioner: Resignations (18 Oct 2022)

Jonathan Edwards: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, what assessment he has made of the potential effect on justice of the resignation of the Victims Commissioner for England and Wales; and if he will make a statement.

Jonathan Edwards: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, when he will publish proposals to replace the EU Green Taxonomy Framework.

Energy Prices Bill: Domestic energy price reduction schemes for Great Britain (17 Oct 2022)

Jonathan Edwards: What advice would the Minister give to manufacturing companies in my constituency that have order books that extend past the six-month period, which the Bill supports, on pricing their products, given that they will have no idea what the cost of production will be following the increase in energy prices?

Energy Prices Bill (17 Oct 2022)

Jonathan Edwards: The Secretary of State will be aware that, in constituencies such as mine, a large number of homes are off the gas grid. The Government have come up with an alternative fuel payment of about £100 for those homes, but oil prices have nearly doubled. I know that changes to the whole policy have been announced by the Chancellor today, but will he commit to equivalent support for those off the...

Trade Deals: Parliamentary Scrutiny (12 Oct 2022)

Jonathan Edwards: Diolch, Ms Elliott. I believe I was about to make the point that the International Trade Committee should have a stronger role during negotiations. On another visit to Washington with an all-party group to investigate the transatlantic trade and investment partnership between the US and the EU, I recall a meeting with representatives of the US food industry. At the time, there was some...

Trade Deals: Parliamentary Scrutiny (12 Oct 2022)

Jonathan Edwards: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Ms Elliott, I believe for the first time. I congratulate the hon. Member for Totnes (Anthony Mangnall) on securing this debate. Much of the political energy of this generation of politicians has been consumed by the fallout from the Brexit referendum in 2016. I remember visiting Washington with a cross-party delegation prior to the...

Written Answers — Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Question (12 Oct 2022)

Jonathan Edwards: To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, with reference to the Government's announcement on plans to help cut energy bills for businesses on 21 September, for what reasons he decided (a) to provide an additional payment of £100 to households across the UK who are not able to receive support for their heating costs through the Energy Price Guarantee and (b)...
