Police Grant Report ( 8 Feb 2023)

Jonathan Edwards: The hon. Lady is doing an excellent job of highlighting some of the creative accounting used by the Home Office when it comes to funding the police, but is there not also an issue, from what I understand, when it comes to capital funding? There is not much capital funding for police forces. My own police force and the other south Wales police forces are building a firearms training centre...

Police Grant Report ( 8 Feb 2023)

Jonathan Edwards: The extra police officers are essentially filling jobs that were previously cut, of course. The money is ringfenced for police officers, and one of the unintended consequences is that police forces are having to reduce back-office staff. My police force, Dyfed-Powys police, has lost 100 jobs, which means many new officers find themselves undertaking administrative roles, rather than...

Prevent: Independent Review ( 8 Feb 2023)

Jonathan Edwards: Diolch, Madam Deputy Speaker. Welsh universities play a vital role in the Prevent strategy in Wales, and their work is monitored by the Higher Education Funding Council for Wales. Higher education is devolved, so what discussions will the Home Secretary have with Welsh Ministers about the proposed reforms? What input did Welsh Ministers have into the review?

Treasury: Levelling-up Fund Projects: Impact of Inflation ( 7 Feb 2023)

Jonathan Edwards: Thank you for getting me in, Mr Speaker. As the Minister said, there have been significant inflationary costs since many of these projects were announced. The feedback I am getting about many of the capital projects in the Swansea bay area is that the same can be said for the city deals. What discussions are taking place with delivery partners to ensure that sufficient central support is...

Prepayment Meters: Ofgem Decision ( 6 Feb 2023)

Jonathan Edwards: Analysis by Citizens Advice Cymru indicates that around a third of prepayment users in Wales have been disconnected at some stage during the past year. Furthermore, there has been a threefold increase in the number of consumers being switched to prepayment meters. Do those stats alone not indicate that there is a real issue with the way in which energy companies use prepayment meters?

NHS Strikes ( 6 Feb 2023)

Jonathan Edwards: Half of the successful revised offer by the Welsh Government is in the format of a one-off payment. Will the British Government confirm that that element of the pay settlement will be recognised as cost of living support and not as income, and treat it as such for tax and benefit purposes?

Written Answers — Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Warm Home Discount Scheme ( 3 Feb 2023)

UK Infrastructure Bank Bill [Lords]: New Clause 1 - Future of the Infrastructure Bank ( 1 Feb 2023)

Jonathan Edwards: I was going to make my points through interventions, but as so few Members want to speak, I thought I would take the opportunity to make a speech. I will speak very briefly to new clause 2 and amendment 5—which stand in the name of the official Opposition, and deal with the need to ensure that the geographical investment is spread across the UK, which is of course is something we all...

IMF Economic Outlook (31 Jan 2023)

Jonathan Edwards: I suspect there is not much hope of significantly boosting overall productivity unless we deal with the huge geographical wealth imbalances across the UK. What consideration has been given to using the so-called Brexit freedoms? In the case of Wales, that could involve devolving VAT and corporation tax to empower the Welsh Government to get on with the job of boosting the Welsh economy. If...

Energy Bills: Self-disconnection (25 Jan 2023)

Jonathan Edwards: The Minister mentioned in his initial reply the energy price guarantee, which has, of course, been extended until March 2024 for gas customers. There has been no further announcement, however, for those who use alternative fuels—oil, liquefied petroleum gas or wood pellets—to heat their homes. Can he give the House assurances that he will put pressure on the Treasury to make an...

Stamp Duty Land Tax (Reduction) Bill: Clause 1 - Reduction of SDLT on acquisition of residential property (10 Jan 2023)

Jonathan Edwards: I agree fully about areas of high housing pressure where people in local communities cannot buy their own home. May I commend to the hon. Gentleman what we have done in Wales? The Welsh Government have brought in a land transaction tax to replace stamp duty, which is a devolved matter, as the Minister said. Under that system, anybody who buys a second or third home pays a premium on that tax,...

Lifeboat Services: Search and Rescue — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (10 Jan 2023)

Jonathan Edwards: I thank the hon. Gentleman for his work in setting up the charity.
