5. Statement by the Cabinet Secretary for Climate Change and Rural Affairs: Wales's World-class Recycling (18 Jun 2024)

Rhianon Passmore: Very briefly, and, firstly, what a fantastic achievement, and we are ambitious to do even more, and I would also like to thank the people of Wales in that regard as well as the strategic policy underwriting that. My question, really, is a simple one. In terms of the amount of rubbish on the go that Carolyn Thomas has already mentioned, that fast food outlets in particular—I'm thinking those...

4. Statement by the Minister for Social Partnership: Creative Wales skills update (18 Jun 2024)

Rhianon Passmore: Yes, I'll come to my question then. In regard to the re-evaluation of the creative skills plan, bearing in mind also the skills development of the outreach of Welsh National Opera, is there any consideration in the third year of how that will be undertaken, going forward? Because we manifestly face a serious undermining of skills and opportunities in vital established cultural sectors, such...

4. Statement by the Minister for Social Partnership: Creative Wales skills update (18 Jun 2024)

Rhianon Passmore: Minister, thank you for your statement today. I think I will declare an interest as a former freelancer, but I'm appreciative of the emphasis today that you've placed on the freelance workforce participation. And I would also welcome any exploration with the UK Government, in terms of any type of system that will benefit creatives, alongside the interesting work in Northern Ireland around the...

1. Questions to the First Minister: Young Musicians (18 Jun 2024)

Rhianon Passmore: I very much welcome, obviously, the national music service investment, but it was never set up for conservatoire-style study. The serious dismantling and erosion of Wales’s finest economic export, the Welsh National Opera, from its joint arts council funding bodies, will ruin its capacity to perform and deliver first-class world-beating schools outreach. And just one example, First...

7. Welsh Conservatives Debate: Economic policy (12 Jun 2024)

Rhianon Passmore: Thank you. The cruel reign of the punitive workhouse model was eroded and lost and dumped because of this social network welfare net, and the destruction of that welfare net has delivered us today high rates of poverty, particularly of child poverty in Wales, as a result of the direct Conservative dismantling of such. These scars and the impacts of grinding poverty will be with us all for the...

7. Welsh Conservatives Debate: Economic policy (12 Jun 2024)

Rhianon Passmore: I'm sorry, I've got just too much to go through, and I'm sure I'll answer any intervention in what I've got to say. The UK Government's purposeful destruction of the UK welfare net, which should address the needs of the most vulnerable, and which ended the cruel reign of the punitive workhouse—

7. Welsh Conservatives Debate: Economic policy (12 Jun 2024)

Rhianon Passmore: It is actually time to end the chaos. The United Kingdom's economy has been trapped by the Tories. Fourteen long years of austerity, presided over by five Tory Prime Ministers and seven Tory Chancellors. But the one thing they all have in common is that they've all seen the majority become worse off. That's a fact. According to the Office for National Statistics, the UK failed to grow at all...

6. Statement by the Cabinet Secretary for North Wales and Transport: D-day and Armed Forces Week (11 Jun 2024)

Rhianon Passmore: Thank you for the important statement, Cabinet Secretary. I was honoured to represent the communities of Islwyn constituency at a D-day memorial service organised by the Royal British Legion district branch of the war memorial in Cefn Fforest, so I wish to also recognise their partnership working with Cefn Fforest community association, and the vital work of Caerphilly county borough's armed...

1. Questions to the First Minister: The Legislative Programme (11 Jun 2024)

Rhianon Passmore: First Minister, the Welsh Labour Government was resoundingly re-elected by the people of Wales in 2021, to deliver a stronger, fairer and greener Wales. First Minister, as you contemplate your first legislative statement, which you're due to deliver to the Senedd before the summer recess, on behalf of my constituents in Islwyn, can I ask you to consider how the Welsh Labour Government can...

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

Rhianon Passmore: It is, but we cannot escape, can we, the abysmal record in terms of rail electrification that hasn't happened in Wales, and we cannot negate that lack of rail spend for Wales, and we must look at this with clarity. The Welsh Labour Government has further invested £160 million upgrading the railway line running through Islwyn communities. This is an investment responsibility of the UK...

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

Rhianon Passmore: I’m also happy to support this motion. High speed 2 construction would have seen the line connect London and Birmingham; it would have run nowhere near Wales and been of no benefit to Welsh rail passengers. Up until next year, Wales will have missed out on around £350 million as a result of the incorrect classification of HS2 as an England-Wales project, and that amount due is also likely...

2. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Health and Social Care: Ambulance Call-response Strategies ( 5 Jun 2024)

Rhianon Passmore: I missed the first bit. Sorry, I do apologise.

2. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Health and Social Care: The Aneurin Bevan University Health Board ( 5 Jun 2024)

Rhianon Passmore: Thank you. And I'll repeat, Cabinet Secretary, that Robert Holcombe, the Aneurin Bevan University Health Board's finance chief, told the board's main meeting that it has a worst-case scenario of a £60 million deficit and a best case of a £48.9 million deficit. He then went on to detail the board's month one report of just under £5 million, equating to the established worst-case scenario....

2. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Health and Social Care: Ambulance Call-response Strategies ( 5 Jun 2024)

Rhianon Passmore: Diolch, Llywydd. Cabinet Secretary, Robert Holcombe, the Aneurin Bevan University Health Board's finance chief—

2. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Health and Social Care: The Aneurin Bevan University Health Board ( 5 Jun 2024)

Rhianon Passmore: 7. How does the Welsh Government monitor the finances of the Aneurin Bevan University Health Board? OQ61208

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

Rhianon Passmore: So, I rise to support the motion tabled by Jane Hutt, and I'm fundamentally of the mind that the motion is of profound importance to UK and Wales plc, namely that this Senedd believes retaining the capacity to produce primary steel in Wales is central to Wales's economic interests and the pathway to net zero. And I stress again, not only to Wales, but the United Kingdom. And 'a devolved...

5. Statement by the Cabinet Secretary for Culture and Social Justice: Culture and Social Justice — Reaffirmation of our values ( 4 Jun 2024)

Rhianon Passmore: Cabinet Secretary, thank you very much for the statement, and I'm going to restrain my comments today to the performance sector of Wales. Welsh culture, Welsh arts and the music of Wales are for everyone, and not just for the elite or those who can afford it. But it is also right that excellence as a concept is recognised within our cultural strategy, and currently it is not. Achieving...

4. Statement by the Cabinet Secretary for Education: Consultation on the School Year ( 4 Jun 2024)

Rhianon Passmore: I wish to welcome the statement by the Cabinet Secretary for Education, and there are arguments and value on both sides of this issue. But the consultation on the change to the school calendar in Wales has received 16,000 responses, and we must note that this is the biggest ever education consultation in Wales. The list of organisations opposed is very extensive, as is the very mixed response...

1. Questions to the First Minister: The Welfare of Racing Greyhounds ( 4 Jun 2024)

Rhianon Passmore: First Minister, 2 June marks National Greyhound Day. It is a timely reminder that Wales is one of only 10 countries across the entire globe—this includes all UK nations—where commercial greyhound racing still takes place in 2024. Published results from races and trials at the Valley Greyhounds stadium, which sits within the Senedd seat of Islwyn, show that from 3 March to 29 May this year...
