Universal Credit Roll-Out (18 Oct 2017)

Tonia Antoniazzi: I know I have not been here for long, but I am having difficulty believing my ears when I hear some of the stories from my hon. Friends who have already had this system rolled out in their constituencies. I am astounded by what I hear from some on the Government Benches and appalled when they say it is those of us on the Opposition Benches who are scaremongering. It leaves me to genuinely...

Surgical Mesh Implants — [Albert Owen in the Chair] (18 Oct 2017)

Tonia Antoniazzi: Thank you, Mr Owen, for chairing this debate. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Kingston upon Hull West and Hessle (Emma Hardy) on securing this important Westminster Hall debate on international menopause day. Women are always reluctant to speak out about the personal and intimate medical issues that they experience. Sadly, they are highlighted only when things go wrong. Two...

Energy in Wales — [Ian Paisley in the Chair] (14 Sep 2017)

Tonia Antoniazzi: Thank you, Mr Paisley. You have indeed improved your pronunciation of my name. I would like to thank my hon. Friend the Member for Ynys Môn (Albert Owen) for securing this debate. With the Government pursuing an ill-advised and short-sighted attack on renewables, the UK is set to miss its target. To put that into context, the EU is set to meet its target of producing 20% of its energy...

Energy in Wales — [Ian Paisley in the Chair] (14 Sep 2017)

Tonia Antoniazzi: I agree with my hon. Friend. We have to move forward, and we need the infrastructure commitment from Westminster to be able to do that. The tidal lagoon has a projected £1.3 billion capital spend, the majority of which will be spent in Wales and across the UK. The construction period is expected to contribute £316 million in gross value added to the Welsh economy and £76...

Energy in Wales — [Ian Paisley in the Chair] (14 Sep 2017)

Tonia Antoniazzi: Does my hon. Friend agree that we should ask the Government to secure a price per unit for wind energy for a year, rather than price variation?

Autism Diagnosis — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (13 Sep 2017)

Tonia Antoniazzi: I thank the right hon. Lady for stating that this issue is not party political. Although the UK Government have introduced an Autism Act, it does not include children and has no funding attached to it, whereas the Welsh Government are investing millions in an innovative national integrated service. As well as investing millions in neuro-developmental assessment services for children, they...

Business of the House (20 Jul 2017)

Tonia Antoniazzi: Only a week ago the Secretary of State for Transport told me that “electric trains will arrive in Cardiff and Swansea this autumn”—[Official Report, 13 July 2017; Vol. 627, c. 410.], so I am not going to ask a question on that. The Government are reneging not only on their commitment to reducing pollution from diesel engines, but on their commitment to reducing carbon...

Bills Presented: Tuition Fees (19 Jul 2017)

Tonia Antoniazzi: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Queen’s Speech: Implications for Wales — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (19 Jul 2017)

Tonia Antoniazzi: I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Cardiff Central (Jo Stevens) on securing the debate. We had to wait longer than we expected for the Queen’s Speech, apparently because the ink took longer than expected to dry on the vellum. When it came, it made no mention whatever of the tidal lagoon. It did include five interesting objectives: working with the devolved Administrations to...

Queen’s Speech: Implications for Wales — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (19 Jul 2017)

Tonia Antoniazzi: I can tie it back in: the Government missed the opportunity to include our green agenda in their Queen’s Speech. It is through education and training that we can provide job opportunities for our young people to thrive and prosper in the communities they grew up in. I feel strongly about that, as does a very good friend of mine, an Assembly Member for Llanelli. We do not want the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Public Sector Pay Cap (19 Jul 2017)

Tonia Antoniazzi: What recent discussions he has had with his Cabinet colleagues on the public sector pay cap.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Public Sector Pay Cap (19 Jul 2017)

Tonia Antoniazzi: Sixty-six per cent. of public sector workers in Wales, another devolved country, are women, and I suspect that the figure is a lot higher in Scotland. In the light of that, does the Secretary of State not agree that the public sector pay gap is now fundamentally unsustainable and is not only eroding the living standards of women and families but damaging the economy?

The Secretary of State Was Asked: Rail Electrification: South Wales (13 Jul 2017)

Tonia Antoniazzi: What steps he is taking to electrify the rail network to Swansea and further west.

The Secretary of State Was Asked: Rail Electrification: South Wales (13 Jul 2017)

Tonia Antoniazzi: It has been reported that the Secretary of State is preparing to announce yet further delays to the Great Western main line electrification programme, and my constituents in Gower are fed up with the contempt that the Government continue to show them on investment. The Secretary of State has said that the programme will happen, but will he promise that it will not be delayed any further? We...

Economy and Jobs (29 Jun 2017)

Tonia Antoniazzi: Thank you, Mr Speaker, for allowing me to make my maiden speech in this important debate. I pay tribute to all Members who have made their maiden speech this week. It is also a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Poole (Mr Syms). It is indeed outstanding to take this seat back for Labour—it was the most marginal seat in the 2015 election—and to be the first woman to hold it....
