7. Welsh Conservatives Debate: Chepstow bypass (19 Jun 2024)

John Griffiths: This is an obvious and transparent Conservative ploy to try and shore up what little support they have left in the Monmouth constituency ahead of the general election. An Arup review of the proposed bypass found 90 per cent of those likely to use it live in Gloucestershire, and therefore 90 per cent of the costs should fall on UK Government. Pre COVID, Arup estimated the cost at £150...

1. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Finance, Constitution and Cabinet Office: Acquisition, Use and Sale of Property (19 Jun 2024)

John Griffiths: Thank you for your answer, Cabinet Secretary. When the Welsh Government is planning major development, major infrastructure improvement, for example, to our rail network, does the Welsh Government look ahead and consider acquiring land that's alongside such development, which would be more useful following the development that's planned? Does the Welsh Government consider that its powers of...

1. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Finance, Constitution and Cabinet Office: Acquisition, Use and Sale of Property (19 Jun 2024)

John Griffiths: 2. What is the Welsh Government's policy on its acquisition, use and sale of property? OQ61290

3. Statement by the Cabinet Secretary for Culture and Social Justice: Refugee Week: Our home (18 Jun 2024)

John Griffiths: Cabinet Secretary, I was very pleased today to host the Jo Cox Foundation here in the Senedd, and, as you know, they work to bring people together and they’re working with Refugee Week on a great walk as part of the Great Get Together and I think it’s really important that their values inform the way that Government and organisations operate, and I’m very pleased to say that in Newport...

1. Questions to the First Minister: Green Jobs in South-east Wales (18 Jun 2024)

John Griffiths: After some 14 years of Tory UK Government austerity, imposed as a political choice, we've seen economic stagnation and record falls in the standard of living of our communities. Thankfully, the people of Wales and the UK as a whole understand this and look set to vote for badly needed change and a UK Labour Government. That incoming Labour administration will make the UK a clean energy...

1. Questions to the First Minister: Green Jobs in South-east Wales (18 Jun 2024)

John Griffiths: 4. How is the Welsh Government working to promote and develop green jobs in south-east Wales? OQ61298

6. Debate on the Equality and Social Justice Committee Report, 'Actions, not words: towards an anti-racist Wales by 2030' (12 Jun 2024)

John Griffiths: No, I do not think I would, actually, Gareth, because it's a responsibility and, indeed, as I say, a legal duty on all local authorities in Wales—all local authorities—not on a regional basis, but all individual local authorities to properly assess the accommodation needs of Gypsies and Travellers and to provide for them. What we see all too often, I'm afraid, is stigma, discrimination...

6. Debate on the Equality and Social Justice Committee Report, 'Actions, not words: towards an anti-racist Wales by 2030' (12 Jun 2024)

John Griffiths: Thank you very much. A further example, I think—and again, it's allied to housing—is the way that the planning system operates. There is real prejudice, again, and discrimination, unfortunately, in the way our planning system works. And that's the case with regard to larger sites and the responsibilities of local authorities, but also smaller sites. And many members of the Gypsy,...

6. Debate on the Equality and Social Justice Committee Report, 'Actions, not words: towards an anti-racist Wales by 2030' (12 Jun 2024)

John Griffiths: I would like to begin by congratulating the Equality and Social Justice Committee on its report and those who engaged with the committee in this work, and, obviously, those who gave evidence. I would like to highlight the Gypsy, Traveller, Roma community, Dirprwy Lywydd, because I think their voices are often unheard when we discuss prejudice and discrimination. If we are to move forward to...

1. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Economy, Energy and Welsh Language: The Future of Wales’s Steel Industry ( 5 Jun 2024)

John Griffiths: That's a really important question, and I feel strongly that one of the reasons the unions are so committed to the course of action is because they have an alternative plan that is credible and developed by experts in steel production. We would have liked to have seen Tata adopt those plans, which I think everyone, including Tata, accepted were credible plans. I think that, as John Griffiths...

1. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Economy, Energy and Welsh Language: The Future of Wales’s Steel Industry ( 5 Jun 2024)

John Griffiths: Cabinet Secretary, the current plans of Tata and the current UK Government would not see the UK and Wales keep its strategic steel industry, which is so important, as we know, for so many other aspects of security and economic health in Wales and beyond. We know that in around four weeks' time we may well have a new UK Government—a Labour UK Government—with £3 billion on the table for...

1. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Economy, Energy and Welsh Language: The Future of Wales’s Steel Industry ( 5 Jun 2024)

John Griffiths: 7. Will the Cabinet Secretary provide an update on discussions with trade unions and Tata Steel regarding the future of Wales’s steel industry? OQ61204

8. Debate: The Steel Industry in Wales ( 4 Jun 2024)

John Griffiths: As David Rees mentioned with Port Talbot, so too with Llanwern in Newport: there's a tremendous history of steel making that resonates today, and many people still think of Newport as, to some extent, a steel town, now city. In the early 1960s, when Llanwern was opened, some 13,000 employees and contractors were on site and there was a huge amount of accommodation created locally to house...

7. Statement by the Cabinet Secretary for North Wales and Transport: Transforming Rail: Update on the delivery of the South Wales Metro and the Fleet Upgrade Programme ( 4 Jun 2024)

John Griffiths: Cabinet Secretary, as we've already mentioned in this statement, outside the core Valleys lines, the Welsh Government's ability to make transformational change is more limited, and obviously partnership with the UK Government is vital. As you do, I'm sure, I hope for a new UK Labour Government in short order. How would you work with a new UK Labour Government, if we have one, on projects such...

3. Debate: The Infected Blood Inquiry Report ( 4 Jun 2024)

John Griffiths: Dirprwy Lywydd, I'm aware of three victims of the contaminated blood scandal from my constituency in Newport East: Colin John Smith, Terry Webley and Bill Dumbleton, all victims of the shocking failures of the health and political systems that were involved and have been set out in the report. At the event earlier held by Haemophilia Wales and chaired by Lynne Kelly, such an amazing...

1. Questions to the First Minister: Economic Development ( 4 Jun 2024)

John Griffiths: We're in the midst of a crucial general election for the future of Wales and the UK as a whole. An incoming UK Labour Government would have Gordon Brown's report available to it, recognising the regional inequalities of the UK, and providing major investment for Wales in infrastructure, renewables and clusters in south-east Wales, such as cyber security and the semiconductor industry, as well...

1. Questions to the First Minister: Economic Development ( 4 Jun 2024)

John Griffiths: 1. What steps is the Welsh Government taking to boost economic development in south-east Wales? OQ61219
