7. Topical Questions: Tata Steel (10 Jul 2024)

John Griffiths: Cabinet Secretary, as we know, Tata's operations in Wales are centred on Port Talbot, but there are various other sites, of course, including Llanwern. In terms of that transition, as you've described and David Rees has described, the new level of investment will offer opportunities for those other sites, alongside Port Talbot. I'd just like your assurance, as I've asked you many times, that...

1. Questions to the First Minister: The Impact of the General Election ( 9 Jul 2024)

John Griffiths: First Minister, our criminal justice and prison system is in a dire state, and many of the people in prison shouldn't be there in the first place; they need to be better helped with the underlying factors that lie behind their offending. And, of course, if the prisons are overcrowded, it makes rehabilitation very difficult, and that creates more reoffending, more victims of crime. So, I'm...

3. Statement by the Cabinet Secretary for Economy, Energy and Welsh Language: Tata Steel ( 2 Jul 2024)

John Griffiths: Cabinet Secretary, it seems clear to me that people readily understand the case for primary steel making and for steel as a strategic industry for defence and manufacturing in general, and for the infrastructure that we're going to need, and they understand that need to transition to green steel because of the challenge of climate change. So, I very much hope that with a new UK Labour...

QNR: Questions to the First Minister ( 2 Jul 2024)

John Griffiths: What are the Welsh Government's immediate economic priorities for joint working with the new UK Government?

2. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Culture and Social Justice: Child Poverty (26 Jun 2024)

John Griffiths: Cabinet Secretary, a recent meeting of the cross-party groups on poverty and child poverty heard work from the Bevan Foundation with regard to research they've undertaken in Wales that showed that 29 per cent of our children live in relative poverty, and one of the real issues is that they're unable to take part in activities inside and outside of school, as their peers do, for example...

QNR: Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for North Wales and Transport (26 Jun 2024)

John Griffiths: What discussions has the Cabinet Secretary had since his appointment with stakeholders on the work of the Burns delivery unit?

6. Statement by the Cabinet Secretary for Health and Social Care: Investment in the education and training of healthcare professionals 2024-25 (25 Jun 2024)

John Griffiths: Cabinet Secretary, I support a family whose son, Elliot, now six years old, has Duchenne muscular dystrophy, a condition that impacts around 2,500 people in Wales, and they are part of around 170,000 people in Wales in total who have a rare disease. From supporting Elliot and his family, and speaking to experts more broadly about rare diseases, one of the common themes has been a lack of...

1. Questions to the First Minister: Low-income Households (25 Jun 2024)

John Griffiths: The Labour movement and Labour Party exist to further policies of social justice, equality of opportunity and greater equality of outcome, and, after 14 years of UK Tory Government austerity and stagnating living standards, an incoming UK Labour Government is going to have an awful lot of work to do. But I do believe that, with a Labour Government in Wales and Westminster working together in...

1. Questions to the First Minister: Low-income Households (25 Jun 2024)

John Griffiths: 1. How is the Welsh Government supporting low-income households across Newport East? OQ61350

7. Welsh Conservatives Debate: Chepstow bypass (19 Jun 2024)

John Griffiths: This is an obvious and transparent Conservative ploy to try and shore up what little support they have left in the Monmouth constituency ahead of the general election. An Arup review of the proposed bypass found 90 per cent of those likely to use it live in Gloucestershire, and therefore 90 per cent of the costs should fall on UK Government. Pre COVID, Arup estimated the cost at £150...

1. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Finance, Constitution and Cabinet Office: Acquisition, Use and Sale of Property (19 Jun 2024)

John Griffiths: Thank you for your answer, Cabinet Secretary. When the Welsh Government is planning major development, major infrastructure improvement, for example, to our rail network, does the Welsh Government look ahead and consider acquiring land that's alongside such development, which would be more useful following the development that's planned? Does the Welsh Government consider that its powers of...

1. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Finance, Constitution and Cabinet Office: Acquisition, Use and Sale of Property (19 Jun 2024)

John Griffiths: 2. What is the Welsh Government's policy on its acquisition, use and sale of property? OQ61290

3. Statement by the Cabinet Secretary for Culture and Social Justice: Refugee Week: Our home (18 Jun 2024)

John Griffiths: Cabinet Secretary, I was very pleased today to host the Jo Cox Foundation here in the Senedd, and, as you know, they work to bring people together and they’re working with Refugee Week on a great walk as part of the Great Get Together and I think it’s really important that their values inform the way that Government and organisations operate, and I’m very pleased to say that in Newport...

1. Questions to the First Minister: Green Jobs in South-east Wales (18 Jun 2024)

John Griffiths: After some 14 years of Tory UK Government austerity, imposed as a political choice, we've seen economic stagnation and record falls in the standard of living of our communities. Thankfully, the people of Wales and the UK as a whole understand this and look set to vote for badly needed change and a UK Labour Government. That incoming Labour administration will make the UK a clean energy...

1. Questions to the First Minister: Green Jobs in South-east Wales (18 Jun 2024)

John Griffiths: 4. How is the Welsh Government working to promote and develop green jobs in south-east Wales? OQ61298

6. Debate on the Equality and Social Justice Committee Report, 'Actions, not words: towards an anti-racist Wales by 2030' (12 Jun 2024)

John Griffiths: No, I do not think I would, actually, Gareth, because it's a responsibility and, indeed, as I say, a legal duty on all local authorities in Wales—all local authorities—not on a regional basis, but all individual local authorities to properly assess the accommodation needs of Gypsies and Travellers and to provide for them. What we see all too often, I'm afraid, is stigma, discrimination...

6. Debate on the Equality and Social Justice Committee Report, 'Actions, not words: towards an anti-racist Wales by 2030' (12 Jun 2024)

John Griffiths: Thank you very much. A further example, I think—and again, it's allied to housing—is the way that the planning system operates. There is real prejudice, again, and discrimination, unfortunately, in the way our planning system works. And that's the case with regard to larger sites and the responsibilities of local authorities, but also smaller sites. And many members of the Gypsy,...

6. Debate on the Equality and Social Justice Committee Report, 'Actions, not words: towards an anti-racist Wales by 2030' (12 Jun 2024)

John Griffiths: I would like to begin by congratulating the Equality and Social Justice Committee on its report and those who engaged with the committee in this work, and, obviously, those who gave evidence. I would like to highlight the Gypsy, Traveller, Roma community, Dirprwy Lywydd, because I think their voices are often unheard when we discuss prejudice and discrimination. If we are to move forward to...
