Trade (Australia and New Zealand) Bill (6 Sep 2022)

Jonathan Edwards: I am glad there has been some progress. My understanding is that the Welsh Government were calling for concurrent-plus powers; have those been conceded by the UK Government?

Energy Update (5 Sep 2022)

Jonathan Edwards: Rising energy prices will disproportionately hit those on the lowest incomes, while tax cuts will disproportion- ately favour the highest earners. Considering the scale of the financial problems about to hit families, with some experts indicating that energy bills could hit £7,000 per annum by next year unless there is some firm Government action, social cohesion should be the cornerstone...

NHS Pensions and Staffing (13 Jul 2022)

Jonathan Edwards: I thank the hon. Gentleman for giving way. I congratulate him on securing the debate and on making that key point on the retention of staff. When a similar problem happened with the judiciary, the Government brought in a tax unregistered scheme which, critically, breaks the link between working more hours and the additional tax bill, as well as ensuring that the right amount of tax is paid....

Department for Work and Pensions: Support for the Welsh Economy and Funding for the Devolved Institutions (5 Jul 2022)

Jonathan Edwards: I am grateful to the hon. Gentleman for taking an intervention and inviting me to respond to him. Does he not accept that the fiscal deficit is a damning indictment of failed Unionism? That is what it is: it is because of the failure of the Westminster system.

Department for Work and Pensions: Support for the Welsh Economy and Funding for the Devolved Institutions (5 Jul 2022)

Jonathan Edwards: It is a pleasure to speak in this debate on the Welsh estimates. Let me start by congratulating the right hon. Member for Preseli Pembrokeshire (Stephen Crabb) on securing this debate and on making a fine speech, which seemed to be a damning indictment of the failures of Westminster economic policy as it applies to Wales—I hope he will be sending a copy of his speech to YesCymru. When we...

Department for Work and Pensions: Support for the Welsh Economy and Funding for the Devolved Institutions (5 Jul 2022)

Jonathan Edwards: I will get to the point about government structures later, but there is a definitely a debate to be had about the constitutional question. In my view, the constitutional question in Wales is very much an economic one, which is why I ultimately support independence for my country. Finally, the post-reunification German constitution is underpinned by a coherent political structure based on...

Social Security (Additional Payments) Bill (22 Jun 2022)

Jonathan Edwards: Does the shadow Secretary of State agree that missing from the Bill is any support for unpaid carers, and does he share my hope that the Government will bring forward proposals in the near future to help that group?

Social Security (Additional Payments) Bill (22 Jun 2022)

Jonathan Edwards: There is an issue with people who live in park homes—I have a few sites in my constituency—because the energy rebate does not make it through to them. Are the Government looking at innovative ways of addressing the issues faced by those individuals and households?

Jonathan Edwards: Will the Secretary of State give way?

Social Security (Additional Payments) Bill (22 Jun 2022)

Jonathan Edwards: Will the Secretary of State give way?

EU Retained Law (22 Jun 2022)

Jonathan Edwards: The Minister mentioned in his statement that he hopes that today’s proposals will reduce the cost of living, but is it not the case that the British Government’s post-Brexit policy is leading to reduced investor confidence and weakening the currency, which further fuels inflation? Would not a responsible Government, given the serious problems faced by households across the UK, stop...

Access to GP Services and NHS Dentistry (21 Jun 2022)

Jonathan Edwards: One of the major problems we face in Wales and across the UK is the need to replace retiring GPs and dentists. There has been a welcome increase in the number of international medical graduates training in Wales, but the British Medical Association informs me that very few GP practices and dental practices in Wales are registered as skilled worker visa sponsors. Will the Secretary of State...

Access to GP Services and NHS Dentistry (21 Jun 2022)

Jonathan Edwards: I regret to inform the hon. Gentleman that the situation in Wales is not much better, but I do not want to make a party political point. Will he commend the potential role that pharmacists can play in alleviating pressure on GPs? I have an excellent pharmacist in my home village of Pen-y-Groes, which provides an invaluable service for the communities in my area.

High Speed Rail (Crewe - Manchester) Bill (20 Jun 2022)

Jonathan Edwards: Will the Minister give way?

High Speed Rail (Crewe - Manchester) Bill (20 Jun 2022)

Jonathan Edwards: Further to the point raised by my right hon. Friend the Member for Dwyfor Meirionnydd (Liz Saville Roberts), is it not the case under the current constitutional arrangements that every political party in Wales has concerns about HS2’s funding? Nearly every single politician in Wales, including Ministers in the Wales Office, have concerns about this issue, yet the British Government can...
