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

Cefin Campbell: Thank you, Cabinet Secretary. A few months ago, I was in a meeting in the Llanboidy area in Carmarthenshire to discuss a farm that had been purchased by a company to plant trees, and the local community were concerned about the impact the development would have in the loss of fruitful agriculture land, the impact on the landscape, the impact on the economy and the local environment. Now, we...

Cefin Campbell: Cabinet Secretary, it's been five months now since the Independent Commission on the Constitutional Future of Wales published its final report, and it's been more than three months since the Welsh Government published its response to the commission's report, accepting all of its recommendations, both individually and as a package. Now, the commission was quite clear on the urgency with which...

9. Plaid Cymru Debate: Planning policy for new power lines (12 Jun 2024)

Cefin Campbell: And this is the final paragraph: Plaid Cymru believes that undergrounding is not just desirable, but essential. We must move beyond outdated practices and embrace policies that reflect our commitment to environmental stewardship and community well-being. I urge the Welsh Government to step forward, to step up and commit to a future where our infrastructure enhances rather than detracts from...

9. Plaid Cymru Debate: Planning policy for new power lines (12 Jun 2024)

Cefin Campbell: A few months ago, I attended a demonstration by ATP Cable Plough of Pencader, a world-leading company. It's clear that advancements in cable-ploughing technology have made undergrounding more feasible and cost-effective than ever before. This method allows for the installation of underground cables with minimal surface destruction, reducing both environmental impact and project costs....

9. Plaid Cymru Debate: Planning policy for new power lines (12 Jun 2024)

Cefin Campbell: —we've all had a number of e-mails recently showing the strength of feeling and concern among communities the length and breadth of Wales on pylons. In Mid and West Wales, from Llandovery to Llanddewi Brefi, friom Llandrindod to Llandyfaelog, the call is the same: we must underground these cables. In doing so, we as a Senedd will be taking a strong stance to protect the natural beauty and...

9. Plaid Cymru Debate: Planning policy for new power lines (12 Jun 2024)

Cefin Campbell: Siân Gwenllian talked about mitigating the impact of blighting communities. I agree with her entirely on that, and that we perhaps put financial arguments over and above concerns around the landscape. That is something that Russell George mentioned.

9. Plaid Cymru Debate: Planning policy for new power lines (12 Jun 2024)

Cefin Campbell: Russell, you spoke about history repeating itself from 2011, when you came to the Senedd first of all, and that you're now facing a similar campaign again in your constituency. Gweinidog—or Cabinet Secretary, rather—I'm heartened to hear that you're not opposed in principle to the motion that we put forward, and that you're not against the philosophy. I think your problem is with the...

9. Plaid Cymru Debate: Planning policy for new power lines (12 Jun 2024)

Cefin Campbell: Mark, thank you very much for arguing that undergrounding improves the system reliability and the aesthetic quality of the landscape, which many other speakers have supported as well. We will be supporting your amendment as well.

2. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Education: Questions Without Notice from Party Spokespeople (12 Jun 2024)

Cefin Campbell: Thank you very much. I look forward to receiving that data.  Sticking to the theme of attracting more people to the profession, I now intend to turn to PGCE courses. As we know, our universities provide these courses. We've seen an example recently of the threat to these courses, with Aberystwyth University announcing that teacher training courses there are to cease from September onwards....

2. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Education: Questions Without Notice from Party Spokespeople (12 Jun 2024)

Cefin Campbell: Diolch yn fawr iawn. I look forward to those consequentials coming and changing the poor record over the last 25 years. You mentioned teacher recruitment, and we know that there are huge problems in terms of recruitment and the retention of teachers across the whole of Wales. There's been no shortage of announcements by the Welsh Government to encourage young people to think about a career as...

2. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Education: Questions Without Notice from Party Spokespeople (12 Jun 2024)

Cefin Campbell: I will come to my question. Therefore, what I would like to know is how Starmer is going to deliver something that Welsh Labour has failed to deliver, namely to transform our education sector and to make it an attractive sector to teachers once again.

2. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Education: Questions Without Notice from Party Spokespeople (12 Jun 2024)

Cefin Campbell: Thank you, Llywydd. As this is my first opportunity as my party's new spokesperson on education, may I say that I'm looking forward very much to working with you and, of course, to scrutinising the work of the Government in this particular sector too.  My first question is this: last month, the Labour leader, Keir Starmer, visited Wales, as part of the election campaign. Now, during the...

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

Cefin Campbell: Okay. As we all know, our market towns across the whole of Wales have suffered a great deal as a result of Brexit, COVID, and the cost-of-living crisis recently. Now, one model that's being implemented is one by Carmarthenshire County Council, which is a scheme called Deg Tref, Ten Towns, focusing on 10 market towns, including, as Joyce Watson mentioned, Llandeilo, and places like...
