2. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Climate Change and Rural Affairs: Questions Without Notice from Party Spokespeople (19 Jun 2024)

Llyr Gruffydd: Thank you, Cabinet Secretary. Now, we know that the next UK Government, of course, is set to determine the overall budget for Welsh farming, and it seems increasingly likely that the UK Labour Government will bear the responsibility for making sure that your Government in Wales has the resources to achieve its ambitions for the sector. You rightly criticised the Conservative Government for...

2. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Climate Change and Rural Affairs: Questions Without Notice from Party Spokespeople (19 Jun 2024)

Llyr Gruffydd: I hear what you're saying, Cabinet Secretary, and I won't pursue this further, other than to ask myself at what point, therefore, you think action is necessary. When you have staff leaving in droves, where you have directors resigning, surely the red flags should be flying. But, no doubt, we'll come back to this at a later stage.  I know you'll be aware that Mona Dairy has sadly gone into...

2. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Climate Change and Rural Affairs: Questions Without Notice from Party Spokespeople (19 Jun 2024)

Llyr Gruffydd: Thank you, Llywydd. Whether Hybu Cig Cymru is delivering its remit doesn't really excuse any problems or difficulties within the organisation. I wrote to your predecessor back in February of this year, expressing concern about the situation there. At that time, we were told that the Government wasn't going to intervene. This week, two directors have resigned from the board, and it's clear...

QNR: Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Finance, Constitution and Cabinet Office (19 Jun 2024)

Llyr Gruffydd: What assessment has the Cabinet Secretary made of the need to devolve powers over policing to Wales?

QNR: Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Climate Change and Rural Affairs (19 Jun 2024)

Llyr Gruffydd: What steps is the Welsh Government taking this year to prevent industrial pollution from affecting communities?

1. Questions to the First Minister: Further Devolution Powers (18 Jun 2024)

Llyr Gruffydd: Well, in your leadership campaign manifesto, you called for specific powers to be devolved to the Senedd, didn't you? They included the Crown Estate, justice, policing. You even called for prudential borrowing powers. Now, as we've already heard, your UK Labour colleagues over the last week have constantly undermined your and your Government's calls for further devolution of some of those...

1. Questions to the First Minister: Further Devolution Powers (18 Jun 2024)

Llyr Gruffydd: 8. What is the Welsh Government's position on the further devolution of powers to the Senedd? OQ61296

8. Plaid Cymru Debate: Mental health and learning disability services at Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board (12 Jun 2024)

Llyr Gruffydd: Yes, well, accept the recommendation—. Are you sticking to your amendment that the 'vast majority' of the recommendations have been implemented? Because they haven't. I will give way to Mark Isherwood.

8. Plaid Cymru Debate: Mental health and learning disability services at Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board (12 Jun 2024)

Llyr Gruffydd: In a word, Mark, 'yes'. Now, this amendment—[Interruption.] Yes, and you can make that point. The Minister's making the point that she has apologised. This amendment will just simply reinforce people's perception, across north Wales, that the Government is simply out of touch when it comes to this issue. So, please, consider very carefully what kind of message it will send if this amendment...

8. Plaid Cymru Debate: Mental health and learning disability services at Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board (12 Jun 2024)

Llyr Gruffydd: So, here we are, back in Labour's Betsi Cadwaladr parallel—if I can even say it—universe. It's the same parallel universe, isn't it, as the one that told them that it was fine to take Betsi out of special measures in the first place, despite the advice of Audit Wales, Health Inspectorate Wales and others. Placing mental health services in Betsi, on a sustainable footing, is a collective...

8. Plaid Cymru Debate: Mental health and learning disability services at Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board (12 Jun 2024)

Llyr Gruffydd: Thank you, Dirprwy Lywydd. Mae I thank everyone who has contributed to this debate? It's disappointing that no Members from north Wales in the Labour group contributed, but I do thank the Minister for her comments. She says that she is working with the board. It's a shame that the Government isn't willing to work with the motion before us today, because our aim in tabling this motion was to...

2. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Education: The Social Value of the Further Education Sector (12 Jun 2024)

Llyr Gruffydd: It does indeed, and I was going to refer to that report in my answer, as you pre-empted. Well, in my question, I should say—my supplementary question. We know that cultivating a skilled workforce helps create a prosperous, resilient Wales, which are, of course, some of our well-being goals, but also providing robust support systems integrated into educational settings can help with mental...

1. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Housing, Local Government and Planning: Social Housing Targets (12 Jun 2024)

Llyr Gruffydd: Well, you say it's extremely challenging this month. In April you said, I think, to the Senedd that you were hanging on by the skin of your teeth to the target. Now, let's be honest, I think by now it's maybe unlikely that you will meet that target. Indeed, according to the latest update provided, you've delivered an average of just under 2,900 units per year during this term. And on that...

1. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Housing, Local Government and Planning: Social Housing Targets (12 Jun 2024)

Llyr Gruffydd: 7. Will the Cabinet Secretary provide an update on progress in terms of reaching the Government’s target of delivering 20,000 homes for social rent by the end of this Senedd? OQ61245

2. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Education: The Social Value of the Further Education Sector (12 Jun 2024)

Llyr Gruffydd: 6. What assessment has the Cabinet Secretary made of the social value provided by the further education sector? OQ61249

1. Questions to the First Minister: Child Poverty (11 Jun 2024)

Llyr Gruffydd: We know, don't we, First Minister, that 29 per cent of children in Wales are living in poverty. That's one of the highest rates in the UK, and we've debated here in the past how Labour in Wales scrapped the 2020 goal of eradicating child poverty, and how we have a child poverty strategy without statutory targets, but as you say, the situation here has been made worse by the UK Government,...

1. Questions to the First Minister: Child Poverty (11 Jun 2024)

Llyr Gruffydd: 3. How is the Welsh Government working with the UK Government to tackle child poverty? OQ61251

7. Plaid Cymru Debate: HS2 funding ( 5 Jun 2024)

Llyr Gruffydd: Will you take an intervention?

6. Welsh Conservatives Debate: The First Minister ( 5 Jun 2024)

Llyr Gruffydd: Come on, Mike, that's ridiculous.

5. Debate on the Climate Change, Environment and Infrastructure Committee Report, 'Annual scrutiny of the National Infrastructure Commission for Wales: 2023' ( 5 Jun 2024)

Llyr Gruffydd: Thank you, Dirprwy Lywydd. I'm not sure if I'm disappointed that only one Member has contributed to this debate, but perhaps we could take that as a vote of confidence in the commission, rather than a lack of interest. Thank you to Delyth for highlighting transparency. That is something that we as a committee did emphasise, because we were given an assurance by the chair that there were...
