Wales: Transition Period: Business (16 Dec 2020)

Gerald Jones: The Government’s failure to get the Brexit deal that they promised means we still have no clue about the terms on which businesses will be trading from January, and we face the very real prospect of a no-deal exit, risking chaos at our ports and shortages of critical goods. As the CBI and others have said all year, businesses cannot be expected to prepare for a no deal Brexit in the middle...

Gambling and Lotteries (8 Dec 2020)

Gerald Jones: I welcome this review, and there is clearly a need for robust action. The Minister will be aware that there have been claims from the online gambling industry that regulation should be moderated or it risks driving gamblers to the black market. Does the Minister agree with the Gambling Commission that there is absolutely no evidence for this? Does he also agree that if we want to prevent the...

Arcadia and Debenhams: Business Support and Job Retention (2 Dec 2020)

Gerald Jones: This is an awful situation for every high street and retail park across the country, and even more so for the 25,000 people at Arcadia and Debenhams who are at risk of losing their jobs just before Christmas. In outlining what action the Government are taking to support the people affected, will the Minister specifically highlight any discussions that the Government are having with the Welsh...

Work and Pensions: Statutory Sick Pay: Covid-19 (30 Nov 2020)

Gerald Jones: What assessment she has made of the effectiveness of statutory sick pay during the covid-19 outbreak.

Work and Pensions: Statutory Sick Pay: Covid-19 (30 Nov 2020)

Gerald Jones: For testing and tracing to work effectively, people need the reassurance that they will be able to feed their families. Statutory sick pay is not adequate to support people who need to self-isolate, so will the Minister give us hope that the Government will provide the necessary support to allow people not to have to choose between their health and their livelihoods?

Driving Offences (Amendment) (25 Nov 2020)

Gerald Jones: I beg to move, That leave be given to bring in a Bill to amend the Road Traffic Act 1988 to provide that dangerous and careless, or inconsiderate, driving offences may be committed in places other than roads and other public places; and for connected purposes. In August 2017, a 22-month-old girl, Pearl Melody Black from my constituency of Merthyr Tydfil and Rhymney, was tragically killed...

Spending Review 2020 and OBR Forecast (25 Nov 2020)

Gerald Jones: On 26 February, I asked the Prime Minister to offer additional support to Wales over and above the devolved settlement in the face of unprecedented flooding caused by Storm Dennis. The Prime Minister gave an assurance that funding would be “passported” to Wales. Nine months later, with winter approaching, that funding still has not been delivered. What discussions has the Chancellor had...

Wales: Covid-19 Restrictions (18 Nov 2020)

Gerald Jones: Following the Welsh Labour Government’s decision to introduce a firebreak lockdown in Wales, coronavirus cases have begun to fall across the board. At the time, the leader of the Welsh Conservatives described the 17-day lockdown as “unnecessary” and “disproportionate”, yet just days later, the Minister and his Welsh Conservative colleagues voted for a lockdown in England that is at...

Written Answers — Ministry of Justice: Courts: Wales (17 Nov 2020)

Gerald Jones: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, which parts of the HM Courts and Tribunals Service estate in each constituency of Wales have been sold since 2010; what the date was of each such sale; and how much was paid for each part of the estate sold.

Written Answers — Ministry of Justice: Courts: Wales (17 Nov 2020)

Gerald Jones: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, how much has been spent on additional court space in each constituency of Wales since March 2020.

Economy Update (5 Nov 2020)

Gerald Jones: Although I am disappointed that there was no mention of those who have been excluded so far, I welcome much of what the Chancellor has said, particularly in relation to the devolved nations. However, when I asked just two weeks ago for greater flexibility for the Welsh Government to support jobs during their fire break, that support was not forthcoming. Greater Manchester and other parts of...

Written Answers — Attorney General: Crown Prosecution Service: Standards (5 Nov 2020)

Gerald Jones: What steps she is taking to reduce the backlog of cases in the CPS.

Defence: Veterans Charities: Covid-19 Support (2 Nov 2020)

Gerald Jones: What support his Department is providing to veterans’ charities during the covid-19 outbreak.

Defence: Veterans Charities: Covid-19 Support (2 Nov 2020)

Gerald Jones: The Minister will know about the recent announcements of job losses at Help for Heroes, in addition to the closure of all but one of its recovery centres because of a reduction in funding as a result of covid-19. As that is the case for one of the UK’s biggest household names, which is under huge financial pressure and having to make such difficult decisions, what further support will the...

Covid-19: Economy Update (22 Oct 2020)

Gerald Jones: From tomorrow, Wales will begin a 17-day firebreak lockdown to help to control the spread of the virus. During that period, there will be two support schemes from the Treasury as one ends and another one starts. The First Minister of Wales has asked the Chancellor to allow Welsh businesses to access the job support scheme a week early. He has refused, so a further request has been made to...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Coronavirus: Vaccination (22 Oct 2020)

Gerald Jones: To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, what assessment he has made of the implications for his policies of the responses to his consultation on legislative changes to support the rollout of covid-19 vaccines in the UK; and when he plans to publish the outcome of that consultation.

Support for People and Businesses in Wales: Covid-19 — [Sir Edward Leigh in the Chair] (21 Oct 2020)

Gerald Jones: As a Union of four nations, it is sensible to have that four-nation approach where possible, but clearly the virus is taking different directions in different parts of the country and there is a need to have that local—devolved or regional—response to things. Whether it is the Mayor of Greater Manchester or the First Minister of Wales, they are clearly in touch at a grassroots level with...

Support for People and Businesses in Wales: Covid-19 — [Sir Edward Leigh in the Chair] (21 Oct 2020)

Gerald Jones: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship today, Sir Edward. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Islwyn (Chris Evans) on securing today’s important and timely debate, which comes just a few days away from the new restrictions coming into force in Wales, in the form of the firebreak lockdown between 23 October and 9 November. As the First Minister of Wales, Mark...

Historical Discrimination in Boxing — [Mr Clive Betts in the Chair] (20 Oct 2020)

Gerald Jones: I beg to move, That this House has considered historical discrimination in boxing. It is pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Betts. I would like to take the Chamber through the story of a boxer from Merthyr Tydfil. For some people in my constituency of Merthyr Tydfil and Rhymney, Cuthbert Taylor is a local sporting legend. An amateur and then a professional boxer, he had over 500...

Historical Discrimination in Boxing — [Mr Clive Betts in the Chair] (20 Oct 2020)

Gerald Jones: I thank the hon. Gentleman for that intervention. I agree entirely: sport is a unifier. It is a real shame, and it brings shame on the sport, that such a rule existed at that point in time. It is now more important than ever to right that historical wrong and ensure that Cuthbert Taylor and so many other black British athletes across a range of sports are not forgotten or cheated out of...
