Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Withdrawal Agreement (4 Sep 2019)

Christina Rees: I have listened intently to the Secretary of State’s answers, and I am struggling, because he appears to be totally out of touch with what is going on in this place and in Wales. Does he now believe that the backstop is anti-democratic and risks undermining the Good Friday agreement, as his current boss claims?

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Withdrawal Agreement (4 Sep 2019)

Christina Rees: That is another non-answer from the Secretary of State, among many. I thought the system here was that I ask the questions and he answers them, unless I have got it wrong or he wants to swap positions. I will ask him again: why did he vote for the backstop three times under his previous boss? Was that to curry favour and keep his job then, or is he trying to keep his job now, or both?

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Leaving the EU: Manufacturing (26 Jun 2019)

Christina Rees: Given the almost daily news of business closures in Wales as a result of Brexit uncertainty, and the real prospect of no deal, how can the Secretary of State justify his support for a candidate to be Prime Minister who is prepared to sacrifice thousands of manufacturing jobs in Wales to further his own personal ambition? Does the Secretary of State think it is a “do or die” Brexit?

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Leaving the EU: Manufacturing (26 Jun 2019)

Christina Rees: The last thing I would do is undermine Wales. I am proud of my country and I am proud to have represented Wales many times. When you pull on that red jersey, Mr Speaker, there is nothing like it. I will try again: given the Secretary of State’s apparent support for a no-deal Brexit as a price worth paying to keep his own job, what can he possibly say to people in Wales who stand to lose...

Ford in Bridgend (10 Jun 2019)

Christina Rees: I thank the Secretary of State for advance sight of his statement. Last Thursday’s news of the closure of the Ford plant in Bridgend was absolutely devastating for the exceptional workforce, their families, the town of Bridgend and the wider south Wales community. As a former Bridgend county borough councillor, I completely understand. It is absolutely devastating for the businesses in...

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Shared Prosperity Fund (15 May 2019)

Christina Rees: May I welcome the new Minister, the hon. Member for Torbay (Kevin Foster), to his place and inquire whether he is on a temporary or permanent contract? Our manifesto for the European elections states: “Under Labour, no region or nation would lose out on funding, and power over decisions affecting investment will be taken in Scotland, Wales and in English regions.” Will the Secretary of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Shared Prosperity Fund (15 May 2019)

Christina Rees: I am still not sure whether the Secretary of State has a manifesto. If he has one, it is incredibly well hidden. I could not find it. It is as well hidden as the UK shared prosperity consultation, which should have started before Christmas—where is it? Will he commit here and now to the principle of not a penny less, not a power lost for the people of Wales, and will he do his job for once...

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Leaving the EU: Discussions with First Minister of Wales (3 Apr 2019)

Christina Rees: As you know, Mr Speaker, the Newport West by-election will take place tomorrow, having been called after the sad passing of our wonderful colleague Paul Flynn. I wish Ruth Jones, our wonderful candidate, all the best for tomorrow. Let me also welcome the Under-Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, the hon. Member for North Swindon (Justin Tomlinson), to his place. Is he staying long, or...

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Leaving the EU: Discussions with First Minister of Wales (3 Apr 2019)

Christina Rees: I think it would be really helpful if the Secretary of State reiterated to the House today that he would rule out a no deal, which he knows would be disastrous for Wales. If he will not do so, he should follow his junior Minister and resign.

ST David’S Day (28 Feb 2019)

Christina Rees: We have had a superb debate on St David’s Day, and I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Gower (Tonia Antoniazzi) for securing it. I agree with my hon. Friend the Member for Ynys Môn (Albert Owen) that we should not have to go cap in hand to the Backbench Business Committee every year; the Government should make time for this debate. I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Gower for her...

ST David’S Day (28 Feb 2019)

Christina Rees: No, she still is. I am quite a weak squash player. I have played for Wales more than 100 times, but one good tackle would see me off. My hon. Friend highlighted the beauty of Wales. She also said that the Secretary of State for Wales is not standing up for Wales, which has been a theme of contributions from Opposition Members. The hon. Member for Monmouth (David T. C. Davies) paid a good...

ST David’S Day (28 Feb 2019)

Christina Rees: The hon. Gentleman said that he challenged Paul Flynn on some questions—no change there then, Top Cat. He listed all the good work that the Welsh Affairs Committee, which he chairs, has done for Wales through its reviews and recommendations. I was briefly on the Committee when I came into the House, and I must say that the hon. Gentleman is an excellent Chair who works cross-party. He does...

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Withdrawal Agreement Bill: Legislative Consent (27 Feb 2019)

Christina Rees: I first met Paul Flynn in 1980. He was absolutely inspirational to me then and he continued to be a source of inspiration throughout the many years I had the privilege to know him. Will the Secretary of State guarantee that the Welsh Government will be fully represented in any negotiations with the EU that impact on devolved competence and policy?

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Withdrawal Agreement Bill: Legislative Consent (27 Feb 2019)

Christina Rees: I thank the Secretary of State for his answer, but does he understand that if the UK Government negotiate free trade agreements, for example with the USA, which force hormone-injected beef and chlorinated chicken on the people of Wales without the legislative consent of the elected Welsh Government, that will trigger a major constitutional crisis? Is he prepared to risk that?

Written Answers — Home Office: Police: Pensions (7 Feb 2019)

Written Answers — Home Office: Police: Cardiff (7 Feb 2019)

Christina Rees: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, if he will ensure that Cardiff is allocated a level of funding which is adequate for the policing of a capital city and a seat of government.
