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

Delyth Jewell: The turmoil that has faced your Government in recent weeks has made people question whether you would stick to your word, First Minister. There are many, vastly important Bills that this Government has promised to deliver, from bus reform to coal tip safety, and from tackling homelessness to the Welsh language. But people are nervous because, since you took office, your Government has...

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

Delyth Jewell: 4. Will the First Minister provide an update on the Welsh Government's legislative programme? OQ61258

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

Delyth Jewell: Now, Rhianon signalled her support too for the reaffirmation of reality, almost, by setting out that HS2 will not come into Wales. It shouldn't be noteworthy that Member after Member has been reaffirming the blatant realities of geography, but Westminster seems determined to ignore it. We don't matter to them. Now, I agree with Rhianon about the funding. I cannot understand why the UK Labour...

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

Delyth Jewell: Cefin mentioned the impact on residents in Wales in terms of the poor standard of public transport—those services that would benefit so much from the investment of billions of pounds from HS2. As Cefin mentioned, this is an issue of social fairness. Our poverty as a country is a decision made in Westminster, and, yes, it's a question of rights as well, I agree. Why don't we in Wales have...

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

Delyth Jewell: Thank you, Llywydd, and I thank everyone who has taken part in this important debate.

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

Delyth Jewell: Diolch, Natasha, for indicating again your support for reclassifying HS2. The point that Natasha makes about Network Rail, that raises the point, of course, about why we need the powers over transport infrastructure devolved to Wales, or else we will forever be short-changed and short of tracks. Thank you for your contribution. 

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

Delyth Jewell: Yes, Rhun, this is one subject that does unify us as a Senedd. That's why it's so powerful and so insulting that the Westminster parties do ignore us—it's so much more insulting.

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

Delyth Jewell: Committing to HS2 consequentials is, indeed, a litmus test, I think, both for Mr Sunak and Mr Starmer, a test they are failing. They ignore us because either they don't care or they don't care to notice. Mr Starmer has, indeed, committed to Trident spending. Why not give us the billions we are owed? Now, Carolyn set out the eye-watering sums of money being spent on HS2. I welcome—I really...

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

Delyth Jewell: Diolch, Llywydd. This is not just a debate about a railway line; it is about how Westminster disregards the needs and the voice of Wales. HS2 is a railway line in another country that we are nonetheless funding, a track that does not break our border but that is costing us billions to run, so we lose money by something that makes us even poorer. Time and again in this Senedd, we have agreed...

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

Delyth Jewell: Now, I recognise that there is work to be done, and, as the Chair has already said, perhaps it's too early for us to set out exactly what we would expect. Certainly, our committee will continue to look at how the infrastructure commission works. I have my own hopes that further resources could be available to it in order to enable it to do so much more work. 

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

Delyth Jewell: So, we welcome the 2023 report and the work of the commission. We call for transparency, for robust conflict of interest management and further devolution of powers, and we reaffirm our commitment to investing in infrastructure and working towards a sustainable future for Wales. Diolch yn fawr iawn.

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

Delyth Jewell: Now, what Plaid Cymru had envisaged would be a body that would prove a focal point for nationwide engagement, ensuring debates on controversial decisions occur early in the process. It would also ensure long-term stability beyond electoral cycles, across different Governments. Now, it's no secret that Plaid Cymru have always championed the cause of devolution. We believe that full devolution...

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

Delyth Jewell: Thank you, Dirprwy Lywydd, and thank you also to the committee team and our Chair for their work on this issue. I'd like to start by acknowledging the important work that the infrastructure commission has done in Wales. In assessing our infrastructure needs from an environmental and economic point of view, it is work that will benefit our nation for years to come, and their focus on renewable...

QNR: Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Economy, Energy and Welsh Language ( 5 Jun 2024)

Delyth Jewell: What action has the Welsh Government taken to boost the renewable energy sector in Wales?

7. Statement by the Cabinet Secretary for North Wales and Transport: Transforming Rail: Update on the delivery of the South Wales Metro and the Fleet Upgrade Programme ( 4 Jun 2024)

Delyth Jewell: There is no reason why we could not have these powers devolved. Countries across Europe manage cross-border infrastructure effectively. Wales has no say in so many of these decisions.

7. Statement by the Cabinet Secretary for North Wales and Transport: Transforming Rail: Update on the delivery of the South Wales Metro and the Fleet Upgrade Programme ( 4 Jun 2024)

Delyth Jewell: An economy that is based entirely around Westminster will never work for Wales. We can see this in the failure of the levelling-up programme. We need to have control, surely, over our own funding for our transport network to truly level up our communities. So, do you agree that we need, in order to have that ambition, those extra powers to get us to where we need to be?

7. Statement by the Cabinet Secretary for North Wales and Transport: Transforming Rail: Update on the delivery of the South Wales Metro and the Fleet Upgrade Programme ( 4 Jun 2024)

Delyth Jewell: In order to get the most out of the metro, of course, you have to look further than what will be beneficial for the passengers of today only, in order to make sure that behaviour change does follow.

7. Statement by the Cabinet Secretary for North Wales and Transport: Transforming Rail: Update on the delivery of the South Wales Metro and the Fleet Upgrade Programme ( 4 Jun 2024)

Delyth Jewell: We need to look at densification of development, particularly what affordable housing will be developed, as well as physical and social regeneration projects near those transport hubs in many of our towns in the Valleys that have previously been overlooked. Professor Mark Barry has already been raised this afternoon. He has previously called for a metro development corporation to lead on that...

7. Statement by the Cabinet Secretary for North Wales and Transport: Transforming Rail: Update on the delivery of the South Wales Metro and the Fleet Upgrade Programme ( 4 Jun 2024)

Delyth Jewell: Thank you, Cabinet Secretary—I can never remember what that is in Welsh—for updating us on these plans. I caught a train on the new timetable this morning, and it was nice to be able to come to the bay without having to change at Queen Street. 

7. Statement by the Cabinet Secretary for North Wales and Transport: Transforming Rail: Update on the delivery of the South Wales Metro and the Fleet Upgrade Programme ( 4 Jun 2024)

Delyth Jewell: I understand that, while some of the new trains have been rolled out already, more are supposed to be added in time for the National Eisteddfod in Pontypridd that we're all very excited about.  Could I ask if the programme is still on time to be able to deliver that? And could you outline what part that will play in providing extra capacity to encourage greater attendance, of course, at...
