Charter for Budget Responsibility and Welfare Cap (10 Jan 2022)

Beth Winter: We are here this evening to discuss the welfare cap that is referred to in the autumn Budget. Introduced in 2014, it is designed to limit spending on social security. This is notable as it reflects the Conservative hostility to properly fund a social security safety net for the most vulnerable and disadvantaged groups in society. The welfare cap is repugnant and regressive, and is driven by a...

Nationality and Borders Bill: New Clause 20 - References to justices of the peace in relation to Northern Ireland (7 Dec 2021)

Beth Winter: Yesterday, in a scathing attack on this Bill, Welsh Government Cabinet Ministers issued a statement saying that the Bill undermines Wales’s desire to be a nation of sanctuary, and will exacerbate inequality and harm. In their words: “Wales is a welcoming nation and we will always stand with those who need us the most.” Yes, Minister, we do keep a welcome in the hillsides and valleys of...

Climate Goals: Wellbeing Economy (30 Nov 2021)

Beth Winter: I thank the hon. Member for Brighton, Pavilion (Caroline Lucas) for securing this really important debate. The subject is close to my heart and to how I try to work as a political representative, both in Parliament and in my constituency. My firm belief is that we need to work for a society that is not driven by the quest for growth, profit and the enrichment of a few. Rather, we should work...

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (1 Nov 2021)

Beth Winter: In the build-up to the COP26 summit, which began today, I held three climate assemblies in my constituency, and I have sent our manifesto to the COP26 President. Cynon Valley is an old mining community suffering higher than average levels of poverty and ill health. While the people of our community are ready for and want change, they are also anxious to ensure that in the future-proofing of...

Universal Credit and Working Tax Credits (15 Sep 2021)

Beth Winter: It is abundantly clear that Conservative Members do not care about or understand the human cost of the decision that they are about to make. Far too many in this House live, and have always lived, lives that are miles away from the reality of life for constituents of mine—constituents like Sara, who is petrified of what impact losing the £20 uplift will have on her and her family. How will...

Wales: Devolution Settlement (15 Sep 2021)

Beth Winter: The landslips in the Rhondda last year sent a shiver down the spine of the valleys communities, and many of my constituents in Cynon Valley live in fear of future coal tip disasters. Three hundred of the 2,000 coal tips in Wales have been classed at high risk of endangering life or property. We need to know that they are safe and the UK Government have a clear duty to make them safe....

Elections Bill (7 Sep 2021)

Beth Winter: This Bill is an affront to our democracy. It will interfere with and undermine the independence of the Electoral Commission, it will impose excessive and unnecessary restrictions on campaigning groups and, worst of all, it will not only disallow the voting rights of millions who do not have ID but lead to an even lower level of voter engagement. This Bill is unnecessary, costly and a...
