Welsh Affairs (29 Feb 2024)

Carolyn Harris: I thank the right hon. Member for Preseli Pembrokeshire (Stephen Crabb) for securing today’s Welsh affairs debate ahead of St David’s day tomorrow. Like others who have spoken and will speak, I am very proud to be Welsh. I am proud of my country, my family, and the community that I represent, which is steeped in true Welsh values. I see them every day—people supporting each other and...

Welsh Affairs (29 Feb 2024)

Carolyn Harris: Purely for the record, and as a fellow of Gower College Swansea, can I ask the right hon. Gentleman to include the full title for Hansard?

Carolyn Harris: Gower College Swansea.

International Women’s Day: Language in Politics (29 Feb 2024)

Carolyn Harris: I also thank the right hon. Member for Basingstoke (Dame Maria Miller) for securing today’s debate. It is always an honour to be here to mark International Women’s Day. Today’s debate calls for respectful language to be used in this place and in the upcoming general election, as the public look to us for leadership and example. It is crucial that we respect each other and those who...

International Women’s Day: Language in Politics (29 Feb 2024)

Carolyn Harris: I agree. Before I was elected, my husband always told me that I would need to have a thick skin. Well, it has gone past having a thick skin. At the end of the day, I am a human being. People would not speak to a person on the street like that, so why should I or anyone else have to experience it online? It is not banter; it is degrading. My mission is to ensure that our conversations and the...

International Women’s Day: Language in Politics (29 Feb 2024)

Carolyn Harris: I totally agree. The menopause is not a disability and should not be regarded as such, but any focus on it—and the EHRC brought focus to the menopause —makes a huge difference to the messaging, how women feel and how employers take notice of what they should be doing. I will cut my remarks short, as I have taken up more than enough time. As we look to the general election, can we reflect...

Carolyn Harris: What steps he is taking to support veterans with the cost of living.

Cabinet Office: Veterans: Cost of Living (29 Feb 2024)

Carolyn Harris: With tens of thousands of veterans across the UK forced to rely on universal credit to get by, what is the Minister doing to help veterans in Swansea East and right across the country who are in receipt of universal credit to cope with the increased cost of living caused by this Government’s economic failings?

Digital Exclusion (28 Feb 2024)

Carolyn Harris: Order. I call Sarah Dyke.

Digital Exclusion (28 Feb 2024)

Carolyn Harris: Order. As hon. Members can see, the debate is oversubscribed and there will therefore be a two-minute time limit. I remind colleagues of two things: if they wish to speak, they need to bob; and any interventions taken will cause other colleagues to lose time further on in the debate.

Leighton Hospital Rebuild (28 Feb 2024)

Carolyn Harris: I will call Dr Kieran Mullan to move the motion and then the Minister to respond. As is the convention for 30-minute debates, there will not be an opportunity for the Member in charge to wind up.

Carolyn Harris: I remind Members that they should bob if they wish to be called to speak.

Financial Risk Checks for Gambling — [Sir Edward Leigh in the Chair] (26 Feb 2024)

Carolyn Harris: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Sir Edward. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Neath (Christina Rees) on leading this petition debate. It is an honour to speak about a topic that I am truly passionate about: reducing gambling harm and protecting the most vulnerable. According to the Gambling Commission, 22.5 million people in this country gamble, which equates to...

Financial Risk Checks for Gambling — [Sir Edward Leigh in the Chair] (26 Feb 2024)

Carolyn Harris: I totally agree. Anti-gambling is one thing that I am not. I am very fond of visiting the racetrack, as I am the bingo hall. My motive does not come from being anti-gambling. I want to protect vulnerable people. The logical way forward would be to protect and proactively introduce affordability checks on anyone gambling larger sums. Those would not stop anyone who can afford it betting as...

Financial Risk Checks for Gambling — [Sir Edward Leigh in the Chair] (26 Feb 2024)

Carolyn Harris: While we do not have all the answers now, that does not mean we should not do anything to protect those who are vulnerable. It is our responsibility to make sure that the system works to protect vulnerable gamblers. It is ironic that this is the same industry that just a few years ago set out the three steps for responsible gambling, which included only gambling what is affordable —the same...

Written Answers — Department for Culture, Media and Sport: Gambling: Young People ( 8 Feb 2024)

Carolyn Harris: To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport, if she will make an assessment of the potential implications for her policies of the study by Gabriel A. Brooks and Luke Clark entitled, The gamblers of the future? Migration from loot boxes to gambling in a longitudinal study of young adults, published in Computers in Human Behaviour, volume 141, in April 2023.

Wales: Cost of Living (31 Jan 2024)

Carolyn Harris: What recent discussions he has had with Cabinet colleagues on the cost of living in Wales.

Wales: Cost of Living (31 Jan 2024)

Carolyn Harris: On Monday evening, ITV News featured a Bevan Foundation study on pensioner poverty in Wales. With nearly a quarter of Wales’s population being over 65, more pensioners are experiencing poverty in Wales than anywhere else in the UK. The “make do and mend” generation, who experienced imposed rationing as children, are now self-denying, with one in 10 pensioners skipping meals and one in...

Public Bill Committee: Criminal Justice Bill: New Clause 17 - Offence of failing to remain at the scene of a traffic collision (30 Jan 2024)

Carolyn Harris: I rise to speak to new clause 49 on behalf of my hon. Friend the Member for Merthyr Tydfil and Rhymney (Gerald Jones) and others. The new clause would amend the Road Traffic Act 1988 to provide that dangerous and careless or inconsiderate driving offences may be committed on private land adjacent to the highway. In August 2017, 22-month-old Pearl Melody Black from Merthyr Tydfil was...
