Steel Industry: Wales — [Sir Gary Streeter in the Chair] (21 Feb 2024)

Jonathan Edwards: I commend the hon. Member on her excellent contribution. Is the reason for the backlash to this announcement not the fact that it appears that the UK Government are providing £500 million to lose 3,000 jobs in Wales, which has been a massive PR disaster for them?

Steel Industry: Wales — [Sir Gary Streeter in the Chair] (21 Feb 2024)

Jonathan Edwards: I congratulate the hon. Lady on securing the debate and on her leadership on the issue. It seems that the only hope is to try to persuade Tata to delay some of the implementation of its plans until the change of Government, we all assume, by the end of the year. As the hon. Lady mentioned, there is an alternative proposal from the Labour party for investment in the steel industry. Does she...

Written Answers — Department for Business and Trade: Iron and Steel: Wales (19 Feb 2024)

Jonathan Edwards: To ask the Secretary of State for Business and Trade, what recent representations she has received from the Welsh government on the future of the steel industry in Wales.

Police Grant Report ( 7 Feb 2024)

Jonathan Edwards: May I ask the hon. Gentleman kindly to take a look at the recommendations of the Welsh Government’s own independent commission on the constitutional future of Wales, which reported earlier this month? The commission strongly argued in favour of devolving policing and criminal justice powers to Wales, a position that is supported by the Welsh Government and the current First Minister. That...

Police Grant Report ( 7 Feb 2024)

Jonathan Edwards: Further to the intervention by the hon. Member for Bradford East (Imran Hussain), is it not the reality that the contribution of the police precept to the overall cost of policing has increased substantially? In the case of Dyfed-Powys police, the precept was 37% of total funding in 2010-11, but this year it is 54.4%, so the burden is being pushed on to local taxpayers via the precept.

NHS Dentistry: Recovery and Reform ( 7 Feb 2024)

Jonathan Edwards: I regret to inform the House that the situation in west Wales is quite catastrophic, and recent reforms by the Welsh Government have probably made matters far worse. However, my constituents and I would like to know how much of what the Secretary of State has announced today is new money, resulting in Barnett consequentials for the Welsh Government.

Written Answers — Treasury: Self-employed: Finance ( 5 Feb 2024)

Jonathan Edwards: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, whether he has made an assessment of the potential impact of requiring payments on accounts from self-employed workers on levels of financial hardship.

Written Answers — Ministry of Justice: Prison Sentences: Wales ( 2 Feb 2024)

Jonathan Edwards: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, what data his Department holds on the number of prisoners serving public protection sentences in Wales.

Northern Ireland Executive Formation (31 Jan 2024)

Jonathan Edwards: I welcome the statement. If a future UK Government were to diverge substantially from EU product regulations and standards for Great Britain, what would be the impact on what the Secretary of State has announced today?

Fossil Fuels: Lobbying (30 Jan 2024)

Jonathan Edwards: I congratulate the hon. Lady on securing this Adjournment debate, and on the strength of her arguments. I echo the points made by the hon. Member for Strangford (Jim Shannon) about her contribution to this House over the years. It has been a pleasure to serve with her over the last decade and more. Would the hon. Lady add to her list the need to reduce the overall cost of politics? An...

Media Bill: New Clause 3 - Consultation on section 50 (30 Jan 2024)

Jonathan Edwards: My hon. Friend is making a compelling case, and the events of the past week involving the commission vindicate the position he has taken. The recent difficulties in S4C have been very damaging for the channel. My firm view is that if the matter had been in the hands of Welsh Government Ministers and the Senedd, which can provide scrutiny and accountability, we would not have got to the...

Media Bill: New Clause 3 - Consultation on section 50 (30 Jan 2024)

Jonathan Edwards: I am grateful to the hon. Gentleman for giving way and for giving us a history lesson on the hard work of Gwynfor Evans. Anybody who is interested in this period in the history of Wales should watch the great drama that S4C recently commissioned on the life of Gwynfor Evans, and this campaign in particular. I was at Crymych rugby club at the weekend with Rhodri John, the actor who portrayed...

Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office: Iran and Pakistan (30 Jan 2024)

Jonathan Edwards: What recent discussions he has had with his international counterparts on the state of relations between Iran and Pakistan.

Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office: Iran and Pakistan (30 Jan 2024)

Jonathan Edwards: As the Minister said, diplomatic efforts have eased tensions following the exchange of missiles earlier this month. However, the Minister will be aware that, over the weekend, Iranian gunmen murdered nine Pakistanis in the Iranian city of Saravan. The fact that both countries have launched air strikes against each other indicates how fragile the situation is in the middle east, and how...

Jonathan Edwards: To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, whether she has had recent discussions with her counterpart in the Welsh government on the regulation of (a) physician associates and (b) anaesthesia associates.

Groceries Supply Code of Practice — [Mrs Sheryll Murray in the Chair] (22 Jan 2024)

Jonathan Edwards: I congratulate my hon. Friend on her introductory remarks and welcome the debate. The last few years have been very difficult for farmers, with inflation in the wider economy increasing their input costs substantially: we need only to look at fertiliser for one example. The reality is that they are very exposed in the supply chain, so we need to look at how we can strengthen support for our...

Written Answers — Ministry of Defence: Red Sea: Shipping (18 Jan 2024)

Jonathan Edwards: To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, what the Government's policy is on the role of Parliament in military interventions in the Red Sea.

Excess Death Trends — [Sir Gary Streeter in the Chair] (16 Jan 2024)

Jonathan Edwards: The hon. Gentleman is right that there is considerable concern about this issue. Does he agree that we should use the most accurate data available and the dataset of the age-standardised mortality rate, which takes into consideration a growing and ageing population?

Defending the UK and Allies (15 Jan 2024)

Jonathan Edwards: The Prime Minister has emphasised throughout this urgent statement that our action was not an act of escalation, but surely the key determinant of that is how it is perceived by forces in the middle east and by the wider Arab population. Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Jordan and Egypt—countries we would not describe as anti-western in any way—have all expressed varying degrees of concern. Is the...
