Nuclear Safeguards Bill (16 Oct 2017)

Liz Saville-Roberts: The decommissioning of the UK’s ageing nuclear estate is a critical aspect of Euratom’s work, yet there is not a single mention in the Bill of decommissioning. Will the Secretary of State explain how the 17 nuclear sites that are currently in the process of decommissioning, including Trawsfynydd in my constituency, will be regulated and properly staffed and have the necessary...

Business of the House (12 Oct 2017)

Liz Saville-Roberts: Veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder tell me that residential treatment is a lifeline for many of them and their families. Welsh veterans will be among those protesting tomorrow against the planned closure of the Combat Stress treatment centre at Audley Court in Shropshire. They fear that their nearest residential centre will be hundreds of miles away in the south of...

Prisons Policy/HMP Long Lartin (12 Oct 2017)

Liz Saville-Roberts: I rise as co-chair of the justice unions cross-party group. We all know that the numbers of assaults on prison staff have reached an all-time high in recent months. The Minister has sung the praises of the recruitment drive for new prison officers, but will he explain how new raw recruits are being prepared to cope with the frankly lethal results of long-term cuts in English and Welsh prisons?

Women and Equalities: Domestic Violence: Police Resources (12 Oct 2017)

Liz Saville-Roberts: The reluctance of victims of domestic abuse to complain, and the law’s chronic failure to prevent serial abusers, are distressingly commonplace. Does the Minister agree that a domestic violence register of convicted repeat offenders would help the police to save lives?

Catalan Independence Referendum (10 Oct 2017)

Liz Saville-Roberts: I hope my hon. Friend will agree that if legislators are not allowed to legislate, democracy is hobbled.

NHS Pay (13 Sep 2017)

Liz Saville-Roberts: Will the hon. Lady join me in asking why the Welsh Labour Government have not raised the pay cap where they could in Wales? That would have cost £60 million and would have relieved the situation for 30,000 nurses.

Princess Royal Hospital Telford: Proposed Prison: Port Talbot — [Mr Graham Brady in the Chair] (12 Sep 2017)

Liz Saville-Roberts: The figures show that last Friday the prison population stood at 86,235, which is up 1,268 on September last year. Alongside building new prisons, surely this Government should be prioritising a reduction in the prison population per se.

Princess Royal Hospital Telford: Proposed Prison: Port Talbot — [Mr Graham Brady in the Chair] (12 Sep 2017)

Liz Saville-Roberts: I am grateful to the Minister for mentioning the probation service. I understand that a review of probation is ongoing, in particular the transformation of rehabilitation, but I have not had the opportunity to ask whether there is a date for it to be published.

Princess Royal Hospital Telford: Proposed Prison: Port Talbot — [Mr Graham Brady in the Chair] (12 Sep 2017)

Liz Saville-Roberts: What consideration has the Minister’s Department given to technical advice note 15 and the fact that the site is on a C1 floodplain?

Princess Royal Hospital Telford: Proposed Prison: Port Talbot — [Mr Graham Brady in the Chair] (12 Sep 2017)

Liz Saville-Roberts: I beg to move, That this House has considered the proposed new prison in Port Talbot. Diolch yn fawr, Mr Brady. It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship. Wales will become one of the only countries in the world to be a mass importer of prisoners if the Westminster Government get their way and impose a super-prison on Port Talbot. It is not needed or wanted, nor is it the answer to...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill (7 Sep 2017)

Liz Saville-Roberts: I want to focus briefly on the Government’s wilful misinterpretation of what Brexit means and the constitutional car crash that this Bill entails. Article 50 has been triggered and we are leaving the European Union, but sense can prevail if the Government guarantee our future within the single market, customs unions and the pan-European agencies that are the foundation of Wales’s...

Exiting the European Union: Support for Farmers (7 Sep 2017)

Liz Saville-Roberts: Welsh farmers and fishermen need assurances now that the UK and Welsh Governments are working together. How often will formal ministerial discussions on agriculture and fisheries take place in the next three months, and will these meetings be open to formal scrutiny?

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Exiting the EU: Welsh Economy (6 Sep 2017)

Liz Saville-Roberts: One hundred years ago, y Gadair Ddu—the Black Chair—was posthumously awarded at the Birkenhead Eisteddfod for Hedd Wyn’s awdl “Yr Arwr”. I would like to congratulate the poet’s nephew Gerald Williams and Parc Cenedlaethol Eryri on safeguarding for Wales the family farm, Yr Ysgwrn, which will be opened officially today. This month also celebrates the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Exiting the EU: Welsh Economy (6 Sep 2017)

Liz Saville-Roberts: The Secretary of State has said in the past that there will be more powers for Wales, but is not his banal rhetoric undermined by the Government’s record of broken promises? The tidal lagoon—no decision; S4C funding—slashed; rail electrification—cancelled. Will he list the powers that Wales can look forward to and say when we will hear what they are?

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Child Sex Abuse: Compensation (5 Sep 2017)

Liz Saville-Roberts: If it is a criminal offence to have sex with a child, how is such an offence anything but a crime of violence? To say that child victims cannot receive compensation for their abuse is simply victim blaming. The definition of a crime of violence was last reviewed five years ago. When will this be reassessed to ensure that sexually abused children are not denied compensation?

Bill Presented: Passchendaele (13 Jul 2017)

Liz Saville-Roberts: It is a privilege to follow the hon. Member for Elmet and Rothwell (Alec Shelbrooke), who gave a poignant account of the canaries and in particular his family history. As someone who also grew up in south-east London, I appreciate many of the stories. I wonder whether this will interest the Minister as well. My grandfather, Oliver Frederick Noyes, enlisted with the Royal Wiltshire Yeomanry....

Humanitarian Situation in Mosul: Grenfell Tower Fire Inquiry (12 Jul 2017)

Liz Saville-Roberts: I am grateful to the Minister of State, Department for Communities and Local Government, the hon. Member for Reading West (Alok Sharma), for answering my written question on the privatisation of housing functions in Kensington and Chelsea Council. I find it extraordinary that there is no central management, nor even records kept, of housing contracts within the housing department. We now...

Euratom Membership — [James Gray in the Chair] (12 Jul 2017)

Liz Saville-Roberts: Will the Minister give way?

Euratom Membership — [James Gray in the Chair] (12 Jul 2017)

Liz Saville-Roberts: It is good to hear that the Minister’s door is always open. I have already contacted him on matters relating to Trawsfynydd and have been refused a meeting. Would it be possible to arrange a meeting now?
