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

Buffy Williams: Thank you, First Minister. It has been almost a year since I held my short debate on PMDD, premenstrual dysphoric disorder. Women who suffer with PMDD experience debilitating symptoms, both physically and mentally. The illness affects work, relationships and social lives in a way that non-sufferers will never understand. When I suffered, I was unable to do anything for three weeks out of each...

6. Debate on the Equality and Social Justice Committee Report, 'How we must all play our part: a public health approach to halting the epidemic in gender-based violence' ( 8 May 2024)

Buffy Williams: I'd also like to thank the committee for the work they've undertaken on this report. Domestic abuse and violence can present itself in many forms. Although still far too prevalent and a problem that urgently needs to be tackled, our attitudes and understanding across communities in Wales haven't strayed far enough away from physical abuse and violence. There are deep-rooted misogynistic views...

2. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Education: Learner Absences ( 8 May 2024)

Buffy Williams: Cabinet Secretary, behaviour across schools in the Rhondda has become one of my biggest concerns.

1. Questions to the First Minister: Tourism Opportunites in the Valleys (30 Apr 2024)

Buffy Williams: I know you've previously stated that tourism in Wales can't only rely on our mountains and our coastlines, and that we have to tell our story and our history too. In the Rhondda, we have the Eisteddfod coming to Ponty to celebrate our language, with Clwb Coffi providing Welsh lessons, and the Lion in Treorchy hosting Welsh language events, including Mabon festival. But we also have beautiful...

8. Welsh Conservatives Debate: Education (24 Apr 2024)

Buffy Williams: Yes, I totally agree with the Member; I totally agree with the Member. This is something that in Rhondda—. Every school that I’ve attended in Rhondda has come back to me and said exactly same thing, that they have a huge issue with attendance, so this is something that, as a committee, we will be looking at and looking at very closely. To finish, Llywydd, I would like to thank our...

Buffy Williams: Yes.

8. Welsh Conservatives Debate: Education (24 Apr 2024)

Buffy Williams: Llywydd, the landscape of education in Wales is undergoing a profound transformation, propelled by the new Curriculum for Wales and the Additional Learning Needs and Education Tribunal (Wales) Act 2018. Add to this the behavioural challenges we face across schools following COVID and the cost-of-living crisis, the responsibility on our teachers reaches far wider than to educate. Allowing...

Public transport in Rhondda is experiencing one of its biggest transformations with the promise of greener, faster and more frequent rail travel, but in Rhondda Fach there's no train service, the bypass only reaches as far as Pont-y-gwaith, and even though there are four buses an hour, residents who travel by bus are paying more...

1. Questions to the First Minister: Fracture Liaison Services (23 Apr 2024)

Buffy Williams: First Minister, on average, women lose up to 10 per cent of their bone mass in the first five years after menopause. Having lower levels of oestrogen increases the risk of developing osteoporosis, so women experiencing the menopause are at an increased risk of broken bones or fractures. The First Minister will be aware that one in two women over 50 will experience a broken bone in their...

5. Debate on the General Principles of the Residential Outdoor Education (Wales) Bill (17 Apr 2024)

Buffy Williams: I will now turn to some of these in more detail. The Member in charge has been very clear that the current inequality in residential outdoor education provision was a leading factor for introducing the Bill. He described it as a social justice issue; on this we agreed. Yet the Bill as currently drafted excludes some children and young people in education, and therefore does not provide for...
