Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Leaving the EU: Negotiations (13 Dec 2017)

Liz Saville-Roberts: What assessment he has made of the effect on Wales of the outcome of exit negotiations between the UK and the EU.

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Leaving the EU: Negotiations (13 Dec 2017)

Liz Saville-Roberts: Following weeks of chaos, the Government have realised that their original Brexit promises were the stuff of fantasy. They conceded on continuous regulatory alignment with Europe but, hand in hand with Labour, the Westminster Tory Government remain ideologically committed to severing Wales’s membership of the single market and the customs union. Will the Secretary of State tell us how...

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Leaving the EU: Negotiations (13 Dec 2017)

Liz Saville-Roberts: I spent some time this morning with the Brexit Secretary’s sectoral analyses. They provide an interesting snapshot, but they do not provide any views about the future. I want to take the Secretary of State back to June 2016, when he said that 100,000 jobs in Wales are “directly linked to our place in Europe.” In fact, he also said: “The economic argument trumps...

Point of Order: Courts (Abuse of Process) (12 Dec 2017)

Liz Saville-Roberts: I beg to move, That leave be given to bring in a Bill to prevent abuse of process in civil and family courts; to make provision about cooperation between court jurisdictions; to create offences when certain civil and family court orders are breached; to amend the rights and duties of certain parties to prevent abuse of process in civil and family court; and for connected purposes. Since...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Industrial Strategy (Wales) (12 Dec 2017)

Liz Saville-Roberts: What assessment he has made of the potential effect on Wales of the Government’s Industrial Strategy.

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Industrial Strategy (Wales) (12 Dec 2017)

Liz Saville-Roberts: In the past 10 years of successive Westminster Governments, productivity in my county of Gwynedd has fallen by 10%, while productivity in central London has risen by more than 5%. Such regional inequality is evidence that Westminster is not working for Wales. Does the Minister agree that we should be seeking the tools to build our own future?

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Topical Questions (12 Dec 2017)

Liz Saville-Roberts: Rumours abound that the Westminster Government are seeking to change the policy on nuclear decommissioning. Will the Minister indicate whether he has any plans to introduce a policy of continuous decommissioning for the UK’s ageing nuclear estate, and whether such a policy would apply to Trawsfynydd?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Public Services: West Midlands (6 Dec 2017)

Liz Saville-Roberts: Diolch yn fawr, Mr Llefarydd. On Monday evening, during the opening speeches on the EU (Withdrawal) Bill, those on the Government Benches showed their true colours. Revealed were the imperial British Government’s intentions spelled out in red, white and blue. Would the Prime Minister care to echo the Chair of the Welsh Affairs Committee, who said, “It is a power grab, and what a...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Victims and Witnesses: Court Experience (5 Dec 2017)

Liz Saville-Roberts: Perpetrators of domestic violence can currently commit abuse of process by bringing vexatious court actions against their victims, often cross-examining them in person in civil and family courts. Will the Minister consider introducing legislation on that? When will he do it?

State Pension Age: Women (29 Nov 2017)

Liz Saville-Roberts: The tragedy is that it falls to us to speak for the individuals who have suffered. I have a constituent in Dolgellau who was born 24 hours too late and now has to work for an extra two years and three months. The change has led to individual tragedies.

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

Liz Saville-Roberts: Will the Minister give way?

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

Liz Saville-Roberts: I beg the hon. Gentleman to bring to bear what influence he can on the Welsh Government to get them to commit to maintaining the same level of income for farmers when that money is transferred from Westminster under the devolved processes, whatever they may be.

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

Liz Saville-Roberts: I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Ceredigion (Ben Lake) on securing this significant debate. As the youngest Welsh MP—I do not know whether he likes me reminding him of that fact—it is evident that he has already played an inspiring role in representing his constituency and his country. Considering the interest in this debate and the comments that have already been...

Drug Addiction — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (22 Nov 2017)

Liz Saville-Roberts: Does the hon. Gentleman share my concern that Wales is disproportionately represented? Wales’s population is 5% of the United Kingdom’s, but 10% of those drugs deaths took place in Wales. Will he join me in asking the Minister whether changes to UK legislation are needed to allow devolved Governments to introduce harm-reducing measures, such as safe injecting facilities, in areas...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Charter of Fundamental Rights – Government Report (21 Nov 2017)

Liz Saville-Roberts: Stronger children’s rights protections exist in the devolved nations, and Ministers in Wales are statutorily obliged to have due regard to children’s rights, as expressed in the UN convention on the rights of the child, when exercising any of their functions, unlike in England. Does the hon. Lady share my concern that the EU withdrawal Bill as it stands will remove the basic...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: EU Protocol on animal sentience (15 Nov 2017)

Liz Saville-Roberts: EU laws on animal sentience have allowed Wales to lead the way on animal welfare. When Plaid Cymru was in government, for instance, we banned the use of electric shock collars on cats and dogs. Does the hon. Lady agree that as well as explicitly incorporating the wording of article 13 on animal sentience into UK law, the UK Government should not hinder or stifle any future progress on animal...

Wales and Borders Franchise (7 Nov 2017)

Liz Saville-Roberts: Does my hon. Friend agree that the previous franchise emphasised punctuality above all else in terms of success, and that for the next franchise to be a success, it must also include customer satisfaction in its criteria?

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

Liz Saville-Roberts: This debate is about pay and retention, but Government funding and the duty of care towards armed forces veterans is another issue. The planned cessation of residential services at the Audley Court combat stress facility means that many Welsh veterans suffering from conditions such as post-traumatic stress disorder will no longer have access to residential care. I hope that the hon. Gentleman...
