5. Statement by the Minister for Social Justice and Chief Whip: Fairtrade Nation — 15-year anniversary (11 Jul 2023)

John Griffiths: Thank you, Llywydd dros dro. Would you agree with me, then, Minister, that if we get out and about and see the practical impact of Wales as a Fairtrade Nation in the countries that we help, we will, I think, see the true value of these efforts?

5. Statement by the Minister for Social Justice and Chief Whip: Fairtrade Nation — 15-year anniversary (11 Jul 2023)

John Griffiths: Thank you for your statement today, Minister. It's absolutely right that we celebrate Wales as a Fairtrade Nation for 15 years now, and I was very pleased to host the event in the Senedd today. Back in 2008, in fact, I was at Newport when it was recognised that Wales had become the first Fairtrade Nation, and we shared our learning, in fact, with global activists from many countries. I think...

1. Questions to the Minister for Climate Change: Biodiversity ( 5 Jul 2023)

John Griffiths: Minister, sticking with avian influenza, the RSPB is calling for a moratorium on the release of game birds, because some 2.3 million annually are released across Wales, and game birds can become infected and transmit HPAI to wild birds. There is a concern that the release of game birds could provide an additional source of susceptible birds, which could serve as a reservoir for HPAI and...

7. Debate on petition P-06-1340, 'Stop the change of speed limits to 20mph on 17th September' (28 Jun 2023)

John Griffiths: As others have, I welcome our petitions system, Llywydd, and this debate today, which is important and should be happening, because, obviously, this is a very significant change. It is a change that I very much welcome and have long supported. I believe that the case for that change is very well made over a period of time, and this isn't something that's had a brief gestation period; it's...

5. Debate on a Member's Legislative Proposal — A civic duty to vote Bill (28 Jun 2023)

John Griffiths: It's certainly the case, isn't it, that in the UK and in Wales, we do not have the thriving democracy that we would wish to see, and I very much welcome ideas to improve on that situation, and I'm very pleased that Adam Price has brought this proposal forward for discussion and debate today. We do know that, as well as the lack of democratic legitimacy and the lack of the healthy democracy...

4. Questions to the Senedd Commission: The Senedd's Public Engagement (21 Jun 2023)

John Griffiths: Diolch, Llywydd. I think the earlier joint session between the Senedd and the Welsh Youth Parliament was a very powerful demonstration of just how interesting, important and uplifting it is for the Senedd to engage with our young people. I know that our Senedd education team do a fantastic job with schools and colleges across Wales, again, increasing that engagement between Welsh democracy...

3. Questions to the Counsel General and Minister for the Constitution: Working Arrangements (21 Jun 2023)

John Griffiths: Counsel General, at the end of last year, the First Minister stated that for nearly 20 years the Sewel convention was observed by UK Governments so that UK Government legislative proposals that might intrude into devolved areas in Wales were only taken forward with the Senedd's consent, but that recent Tory UK Governments have not respected the convention and this is bringing the devolution...

1. Questions to the First Minister: Environmentally Friendly Schools (20 Jun 2023)

John Griffiths: First Minister, as Members of the Senedd, I think we do get a strong sense of that passion that school pupils have for the environment when schools come here to the Senedd to visit and to learn more about the work of Senedd Members, and also when we visit schools. I've been very pleased to see local schools in Newport East setting a very good example, I think, in terms of recognising the...

9. Short Debate: Cancer inequalities in Wales (14 Jun 2023)

John Griffiths: I'd like to thank Delyth Jewell very much for allowing me to contribute to this very important short debate today, and to congratulate Delyth on the way that she presented the case so effectively and powerfully. I'd like, as Chair of the cross-party group on smoking and health, Dirprwy Lywydd, to concentrate on smoking, which Delyth mentioned, because we know it's a very significant factor in...

2. Questions to the Minister for Rural Affairs and North Wales, and Trefnydd: CCTV in Slaughterhouses (14 Jun 2023)

John Griffiths: It's very good to hear that, Minister. I'm sure you would agree that animals slaughtered in Wales should be the subject of the highest possible standards and regulations. And would you agree with me that the consultation showed quite clearly the strength of public opinion in favour of the highest possible standards? As a Member of this Senedd, animal welfare is one of the most prominent...

1. Questions to the Minister for Finance and Local Government: Local Authority Joint Working (14 Jun 2023)

John Griffiths: Thank you for that, Minister. There are different configurations at play, aren't there, in different parts of Wales, with regard to joint working between local authorities, and it can get quite complicated. In south-east Wales and in Newport East, Minister, we have the Burns commission with its proposals for better integrated transport, which is really important for the future of the area,...

6. Statement by the Minister for Social Justice and Chief Whip: Refugee Week, 19-25 June — Compassion (13 Jun 2023)

John Griffiths: I very much support Wales as a nation of sanctuary, and I'm pleased to say that it has been embraced by Newport City Council, local schools and local communities. Newport is diverse and home to a significant number of asylum seekers and refugees. I'm sure, Minister, you would agree with me that we should be grateful to those hosting people fleeing conflict and persecution, for example the...
