Nato Summit (16 Jul 2018)

Liz Saville-Roberts: Trump looks more comfortable straddling the world stage next to Putin than he did beside the Prime Minister. How can she justify sabotaging our secure economic relationship with our friends in the EU and craving favours of a man who prides himself on shredding the rules-based order?

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Mobile Phones: Smuggling into Prisons (10 Jul 2018)

Liz Saville-Roberts: Diolch yn fawr iawn. I rise as co-chair of the justice unions parliamentary group. Management at HMP Berwyn has made much of the use of digital technology as part of its innovative regime, but in recent days, prison officers there have lost teeth through being head-butted, have been injured, pushed down stairs and had excrement and urine thrown over them. I am told that violence against staff...

Leaving the EU (9 Jul 2018)

Liz Saville-Roberts: Today the Welsh Affairs Committee published a report recommending continued membership of the single market and the customs union on the basis of evidence received about agriculture. If whoever is in government does not come to the same conclusion, we will all wake up on 30 March without a functioning Government and without a functioning deal. For all our sakes, when will the Prime Minister...

Sustainable Fisheries (4 Jul 2018)

Liz Saville-Roberts: This morning I contacted the Welsh Fishermens Association, which tells me that four weeks of delays to our current trading relationships would leave the Welsh fishing fleet in danger of collapse, and that six weeks of delays would lead to catastrophic business failures. Will the Secretary of State outline how he intends to use his influence in the Cabinet to ensure that Welsh fishermen face...

Nuclear Sector Deal (28 Jun 2018)

Liz Saville-Roberts: I welcome the launch of the nuclear sector deal, which is being held this morning in Trawsfynydd power station in my constituency. I congratulate local people and trade unions, and especially Prospect rep Rory Trapp of Blaenau Ffestiniog, for working to safeguard the tradition of innovative and safe energy production in the heart of Welsh-speaking Meirionnydd. The people of Wales seek to be...

Leaving the Eu: Upland Farming (26 Jun 2018)

Liz Saville-Roberts: Rwy’n llongyfarch fy Nghyfaill anrhydeddus yr Aelod dros Ddwyrain Caerfyrddin a Dinefwr (Jonathan Edwards) ar sicrhau y ddadl hon. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Carmarthen East and Dinefwr on securing this debate. Dwyfor Meirionnydd is eryri—mountainous and magnificent to the eye. It has been a man-made landscape for hundreds, if not thousands, of years. Livestock...

Leaving the Eu: Upland Farming (26 Jun 2018)

Liz Saville-Roberts: To speak frankly, I would like to see a system that does not result in the upland clearances of farmers. Farmers and their contribution are important to the wildlife, and we should consider the people and their role. On the significance of grazing, it is important to have an awareness of the impact of under-grazing and over-grazing, local knowledge and the implicit co-operation of the...

Leaving the Eu: Upland Farming (26 Jun 2018)

Liz Saville-Roberts: I thank my hon. Friend—diolch yn fawr iawn. Would he agree that it is time for the red meat levy—on animals that were reared in Wales but slaughtered in England—to come back to Wales, so that Hybu Cig Cymru can do an effective job on marketing that meat? Sitting suspended for a Division in the House. On resuming—

Phenylketonuria: Treatment and Support — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (26 Jun 2018)

Liz Saville-Roberts: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Robertson. I thank the hon. Member for Blaydon (Liz Twist) for securing this important debate and for her cogent argument. I am here on behalf of Mark Edwards of Llanegryn, Tywyn in Gwynedd. We have heard much about the impact on families and children, but the most effective thing I can do is talk about how Mark, as an adult, deals with...

NHS Long-Term Plan: Sewel Convention (18 Jun 2018)

Liz Saville-Roberts: Diolch yn fawr, Llefarydd. It is an honour to be the first to speak for Wales in the debate this evening. I welcome the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster and Minister for the Cabinet Office, the right hon. Member for Aylesbury (Mr Lidington) back to his seat, from which he has been absent for much of the debate. It is impossible to overstate the seismic implications of Brexit for Wales....

Medicinal Cannabis: Upskirting (18 Jun 2018)

Liz Saville-Roberts: Upskirting is an example of digital technology and criminality moving faster than the law. Legislation to tackle the criminal misuse of digital technologies and services includes at least 30 statutes and measures. Does not the Minister agree that a review into the sheer complexity of the legislation on digital crime is urgently required?

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Tourism (13 Jun 2018)

Liz Saville-Roberts: The 24 policy areas held back by Westminster in the European Union (Withdrawal) Bill have now, with Labour’s seal of approval, been increased to include state aid. Why are the Government deliberately intervening to deny Wales the means to help ourselves?

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Tourism (13 Jun 2018)

Liz Saville-Roberts: Last night, the Unionist parties showed their complete contempt for devolutionists by collaborating to ensure that we had no longer than 18 measly minutes to debate the fate of our national democracies. Is this another attempt by Westminster to defeat what a former Prime Minister once described as the “enemy within”?

Points of Order (12 Jun 2018)

Liz Saville-Roberts: Further to that point of order, Mr Speaker. What avenues are open to me to seek further clarification on the operation of the Sewel convention, about which we heard so much, when the precedent set today is so corrosive to public trust in Wales?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (6 Jun 2018)

Liz Saville-Roberts: The Brexit vote means that families are already £900 a year worse off, while both Tories and Labour peddle the fiction of single market rewards without responsibility. I ask the Prime Minister, her hon. Friends and the Opposition: how much poorer will families become as they indulge in fantasy politics?

Offences Against the Person Act 1861 (5 Jun 2018)

Liz Saville-Roberts: It is an honour to be a co-signatory with the hon. Member for Walthamstow (Stella Creasy) in securing this debate. The Offences Against the Person Act 1861 is a Victorian consolidation statute kept workable only by means of regular reinterpretations and case law; it is a creaking legislative machine held together by bolt-on updates. Unalloyed, this Act makes criminals of both desperate women...

Offences Against the Person Act 1861 (5 Jun 2018)

Liz Saville-Roberts: Will the hon. Lady explain how, and does she agree with me that, repealing these provisions in the Offences Against the Person Act would actually give more powers to the devolved bodies?

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Prison Service Parliamentary Scheme (5 Jun 2018)

Liz Saville-Roberts: What assessment he has made of the potential merits of introducing a Prison Service parliamentary scheme.

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Prison Service Parliamentary Scheme (5 Jun 2018)

Liz Saville-Roberts: I am delighted to hear the Minister’s response, as, I am sure, are the leaders of the Prison Officers Association who are with us in the Gallery today. I am sure he will agree that this must not be just a stage-managed public affairs exercise, and I ask him to commit himself to working with the POA on the design of the scheme.

Royal Assent: NHS Outsourcing and Privatisation (23 May 2018)

Liz Saville-Roberts: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?
