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

Laura Anne Jones: A great question from my colleague across the floor, actually—I'm glad you've asked that. I'd like to ask you a more general one, Cabinet Secretary, if that's okay. There can obviously be no one-size-fits-all approach to monitoring and aiding health boards. I just want to ask you: how do you and Welsh Government recognise the specific and often different and diverse needs of each...

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

Laura Anne Jones: Thank you for your statement, Cabinet Secretary, albeit a very non-committal one. I have to admit I found the statement rather interesting because you mentioned culture, yet we have the Welsh National Opera's future literally hanging in the balance, and I can't say I'm very reassured by any of the statement. There doesn't seem to be any clear plan ahead on anything that you've mentioned,...

2. Business Statement and Announcement ( 4 Jun 2024)

Laura Anne Jones: Diolch, Deputy Presiding Officer. I would like to request a statement, please, Trefnydd, from the Cabinet Secretary for Culture, Sport and Social Justice on the mapping of sports facilities in Wales. It's clear from conversations with sporting bodies and organisations that it's currently extremely hard to find a clear list of sporting facilities right across Wales and even harder to find them...

1. Questions to the First Minister: Support for Businesses in Caerphilly ( 4 Jun 2024)

Laura Anne Jones: As my colleague has already said, we now see Welsh businesses facing the highest business rates in Britain. You are certainly not the party for small businesses. These businesses, especially in our region, have been crying out for help, and what constituents have been telling us all for months is that this business rate rise will cause businesses to either shut or even move to England. This...

QNR: Questions to the First Minister ( 4 Jun 2024)

Laura Anne Jones: What new relationships and sex education guidance has the Welsh Government provided to schools following the Cass review?

8. Welsh Conservatives Debate: Tourism (22 May 2024)

Laura Anne Jones: Along with the many economic benefits that tourism brings to Wales, they would, of course, also bring cultural benefits—visits to Welsh film and television filming locations, such as Llanddwyn island and Llanbadrig church in Anglesey, Freshwater West beach in Pembrokeshire, and Barry. This not only brings with them the economic benefits to local communities and Wales as a whole, but also...

8. Welsh Conservatives Debate: Tourism (22 May 2024)

Laura Anne Jones: Diolch, Llywydd. I am proud to be opening this debate today where we, the Welsh Conservatives, are putting a laser focus on a struggling industry here in Wales, an industry that is not being helped by the current Welsh Labour Government. Tourism forms a backbone to our Welsh economy, and that’s what point 1 of our motion recognises. Tourism occurs in all parts of Wales, and the geographical...

2. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Culture and Social Justice: Questions Without Notice from Party Spokespeople (22 May 2024)

Laura Anne Jones: Thank you, Cabinet Secretary. Well, it's good to hear that, but, of course, we need more than words—we need urgent action now with all that is at risk, which we have both outlined today. Without our arts and culture, we are nothing as a nation; without our arts and culture, we lose so much of our unique history here in Wales and all that makes us proudly Welsh. Without our art and culture,...

2. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Culture and Social Justice: Questions Without Notice from Party Spokespeople (22 May 2024)

Laura Anne Jones: Thank you, Cabinet Secretary. It's great to hear that you will look into that and that you will work further to understand that and hopefully come to a positive conclusion along with people across the border. I want to say that, as well as, of course, as you've mentioned, the Welsh National Opera being world-renowned far and wide across our globe, they also do an awful lot of work within our...

2. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Culture and Social Justice: Questions Without Notice from Party Spokespeople (22 May 2024)

Laura Anne Jones: Diolch, Llywydd. You'll, of course, be aware of the nearly 10,000-strong petition now to protect the WNO, and so I just wanted to ask you what recent discussions you have had with the UK Government regarding the Welsh National Opera. Can you today ease the current fears and assure us that you'll do everything that you can to ensure the future of the WNO?

2. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Culture and Social Justice: Questions Without Notice from Party Spokespeople (22 May 2024)

Laura Anne Jones: Diolch, Llywydd. For those who witnessed the wonderful spectacle on the steps of the Senedd yesterday by the Welsh National Opera, the orchestra and the chorus, performing the Easter Hymn, conducted by Maestro Carlo Rizzi, I think it's plain to see why you need to do all that you can, Cabinet Secretary, to protect this world-class institution. Cabinet Secretary, over the past few weeks,...

1. Questions to the First Minister: Women's Health Inequalities (21 May 2024)

Laura Anne Jones: First Minister, I was struggling with the menopause without knowing what it was for a few years, with symptoms getting progressively worse at the end of last year to a point where I thought I was actually dying. I shared my story in the press to try and help others and increase awareness of menopause—something that half the population deal with in some form, at some level at some point....

QNR: Questions to the First Minister (21 May 2024)

Laura Anne Jones: What discussions has the Welsh Government had with the Chief Medical Officer for Wales regarding the Cass review?

5. Statement by the Minister for Mental Health and Early Years: Improving mental health in Wales (14 May 2024)

Laura Anne Jones: Thank you. Minister, I too want to welcome you to your portfolio, and I'll watch with interest what you do with it, considering the knowledge that you have. As a fantastic former chairman of the children and young people's committee, you'll know that we've been told that there is money, apparently, to tackle mental health in schools, but schools I've visited across Wales haven't seen this...

4. Statement by the Cabinet Secretary for Climate Change and Rural Affairs: The future of farming in Wales (14 May 2024)

Laura Anne Jones: Diolch. Thank you for your statement, Cabinet Secretary. It certainly is encouraging, and I want to believe what you say, and I really hope that I can when more detail comes forward in future months. You’ve released this today on World Farmers Day, so I just want to reiterate the importance of the farmers, and that it takes enormous dedication, passion and hard work to be a farmer. Not...

2. Business Statement and Announcement (14 May 2024)

Laura Anne Jones: Trefnydd, I would like to request a statement from the Cabinet Secretary for Culture and Social Justice, please. Welsh National Opera is currently engulfed in a crisis that threatens its future as our flagship arts organisation and only full-time opera company here in Wales. Welsh National Opera is the jewel in Wales's crown. It is the largest arts employer, created in the 1940s by a group of...

QNR: Questions to the First Minister (14 May 2024)

Laura Anne Jones: What discussions has the Welsh Government had with the Chief Medical Officer for Wales regarding gender services in Wales?
