4. 90-second Statements (19 Jun 2024)

James Evans: Diolch, Deputy Presiding Officer. This week is Wythnos Ffermio Cymru, Welsh Farming Week. This year's theme is 'securing the future of Welsh food'. This week shines a light on the incredible work of our farmers and the work they do every day. From sunrise to sunset, Welsh farmers dedicate themselves to producing the high-quality food we enjoy. They nurture crops, raise healthy livestock and...

2. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Climate Change and Rural Affairs: Staff Capacity Issues at Natural Resources Wales (19 Jun 2024)

James Evans: Cabinet Secretary, following up the question that I asked the First Minister a couple of weeks ago about capacity issues, I'd like to specifically enquire about the impact these may be having on land management agreements. I've had a number of meetings and correspondence with landowners in my constituency who say there are delays in bringing land management agreements forward; they're not...

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

James Evans: I don't like to exacerbate it, Cabinet Secretary; all I'm trying to do is explain the situation that the industry finds itself in. People have lost a bit of confidence in HCC, and I think it's right that we try and rebuild that. Because what I and the Welsh Conservatives would like to see, Cabinet Secretary, and a lot of the industry would like to see, is a fully independent meat marketing...

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

James Evans: Thank you for that, Cabinet Secretary. I know you realise, as I do, that it's a very critical time for the agricultural sector across Wales. Our farmers do want to produce the highest quality food and have that food exported to every single market that's available to them. Reports of our industry body being off the mark and not having any strategic vision are very damaging for the sector and...

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

James Evans: Diolch, Llywydd. Cabinet Secretary, it's been extremely concerning to read the reports in relation to Hybu Cig Cymru and the toxic bullying culture within the organisation. The chief executive officer has stood down, two senior executives are leaving and board members are on the verge of resigning. There have been no board minutes published since 2022, and no up-to-date financial statements...

James Evans: I'd like to thank the Cabinet Secretary for your statement this afternoon and outlining the Welsh Government's contribution to our armed forces community across Wales. I want to join with you and my group in your commitment, and our commitment, to veterans and their families across our country. Their service and sacrifice deserves our deepest gratitude. As you rightly mentioned, Wales does...

1. Questions to the First Minister: River Pollution (11 Jun 2024)

James Evans: First Minister, there is a worrying lack of accessibility when it comes to reporting pollution instances to Natural Resources Wales. Numerous constituents have contacted me about difficulty in reaching their enforcement teams, especially via the phone, with one person, when they finally got through, being told by Natural Resources Wales, 'We physically don't have the people here to respond to...

4. 90-second Statements ( 5 Jun 2024)

James Evans: Eighty years ago, on 6 June 1944, during D-day, the largest amphibious invasion in military history took place. Welsh servicemen and women played a critical role in the liberation of Europe from Nazi tyranny. Over 150,000 troops, including countless Welsh servicemen, landed on the beaches of Normandy in operations codenamed Utah, Omaha, Gold, Juno and Sword. These brave soldiers faced heavily...

1. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Economy, Energy and Welsh Language: Labour Market Statistics ( 5 Jun 2024)

James Evans: Diolch, Cabinet Secretary, for your answer. In those statistics, it did state that 28 per cent of Wales is economically inactive. Now, that's a huge figure and a number of people out of work. Cabinet Secretary, I'm not interested in a game of political ping-pong with you today, because behind any of those figures are real people with real experiences that we need to get back to work as soon...

1. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Economy, Energy and Welsh Language: Labour Market Statistics ( 5 Jun 2024)

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

James Evans: In swatting away that pesky fly earlier, I did say an unparliamentary word. I would just like to correct the record and apologise. 

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

James Evans: Cefin, will you take an intervention?

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

James Evans: I’m sure you meet many businesses, like I do, across the region, who are very concerned about the visitor levy and actually making sure that, when that tax does come into force, if it does, it's actually going to be re-implemented and given back to those tourism businesses so they can develop—bloody fly; get from here—so they can develop the industry. So, surely that's something that...

5. 90-second Statements (22 May 2024)

James Evans: Diolch, Deputy Presiding Officer. Tomorrow is the inaugural Senedd dog of the year competition. This incentive serves as a powerful platform to highlight the profound bond between people and their dogs and the vital role that dogs play within Welsh society. Statistics reveal a surge in dog ownership in Wales, with a recent report from the Kennel Club suggesting a 17 per cent rise since the...

2. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Culture and Social Justice: The Collaborative Sports Facilities Group (22 May 2024)

James Evans: Cabinet Secretary, I recently visited the Battle Back Centre with the cross-party group on the armed forces. That centre does fantastic work supporting veterans in their recovery journey. Since the centre opened, it has helped 5,500 wounded, injured and sick service personnel with their recovery journey due to sport and recreation. That's how they actually get people back to be recovered to...

1. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for North Wales and Transport: Rail Services for Rural Communities (22 May 2024)

James Evans: Thank you, Cabinet Secretary, for your answer to Jane Dodds. Back on 24 April, I raised concerns with you about the cuts to the Heart of Wales line. You said then that you take incredibly seriously the needs of the people who live in rural Wales. You also went on to say that you would meet with residents and elected Members over this. Since our discussion on 24 April, I haven't had an...

QNR: Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Culture and Social Justice (22 May 2024)

James Evans: What is the Welsh Government doing to protect historic monuments from large-scale development?

7. The Mandatory Use of Closed Circuit Television in Slaughterhouses (Wales) Regulations 2024 (21 May 2024)

James Evans: I'd like to thank the Cabinet Secretary for bringing forward these regulations. Today, my colleagues and I in the Welsh Conservative group will be supporting these regulations that you have tabled, as we firmly believe that the mandatory use of closed-circuit television in slaughterhouses across Wales is required to drive up standards across the industry. Animal welfare is a cornerstone of...
