1. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Economy, Energy and Welsh Language: The Future of Wales’s Steel Industry ( 5 Jun 2024)

John Griffiths: That's a really important question, and I feel strongly that one of the reasons the unions are so committed to the course of action is because they have an alternative plan that is credible and developed by experts in steel production. We would have liked to have seen Tata adopt those plans, which I think everyone, including Tata, accepted were credible plans. I think that, as John Griffiths...

1. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Economy, Energy and Welsh Language: The Future of Wales’s Steel Industry ( 5 Jun 2024)

John Griffiths: Cabinet Secretary, the current plans of Tata and the current UK Government would not see the UK and Wales keep its strategic steel industry, which is so important, as we know, for so many other aspects of security and economic health in Wales and beyond. We know that in around four weeks' time we may well have a new UK Government—a Labour UK Government—with £3 billion on the table for...

1. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Economy, Energy and Welsh Language: The Future of Wales’s Steel Industry ( 5 Jun 2024)

John Griffiths: 7. Will the Cabinet Secretary provide an update on discussions with trade unions and Tata Steel regarding the future of Wales’s steel industry? OQ61204

8. Debate: The Steel Industry in Wales ( 4 Jun 2024)

John Griffiths: As David Rees mentioned with Port Talbot, so too with Llanwern in Newport: there's a tremendous history of steel making that resonates today, and many people still think of Newport as, to some extent, a steel town, now city. In the early 1960s, when Llanwern was opened, some 13,000 employees and contractors were on site and there was a huge amount of accommodation created locally to house...

7. Statement by the Cabinet Secretary for North Wales and Transport: Transforming Rail: Update on the delivery of the South Wales Metro and the Fleet Upgrade Programme ( 4 Jun 2024)

John Griffiths: Cabinet Secretary, as we've already mentioned in this statement, outside the core Valleys lines, the Welsh Government's ability to make transformational change is more limited, and obviously partnership with the UK Government is vital. As you do, I'm sure, I hope for a new UK Labour Government in short order. How would you work with a new UK Labour Government, if we have one, on projects such...

3. Debate: The Infected Blood Inquiry Report ( 4 Jun 2024)

John Griffiths: Dirprwy Lywydd, I'm aware of three victims of the contaminated blood scandal from my constituency in Newport East: Colin John Smith, Terry Webley and Bill Dumbleton, all victims of the shocking failures of the health and political systems that were involved and have been set out in the report. At the event earlier held by Haemophilia Wales and chaired by Lynne Kelly, such an amazing...

1. Questions to the First Minister: Economic Development ( 4 Jun 2024)

John Griffiths: We're in the midst of a crucial general election for the future of Wales and the UK as a whole. An incoming UK Labour Government would have Gordon Brown's report available to it, recognising the regional inequalities of the UK, and providing major investment for Wales in infrastructure, renewables and clusters in south-east Wales, such as cyber security and the semiconductor industry, as well...

1. Questions to the First Minister: Economic Development ( 4 Jun 2024)

John Griffiths: 1. What steps is the Welsh Government taking to boost economic development in south-east Wales? OQ61219

7. Debate on petition P-06-1407, 'We want the Welsh Government to rescind and remove the disastrous 20mph law' (22 May 2024)

John Griffiths: 'They will not have to endure the horrors and pain that my daughter's family and friends have had to endure.'

7. Debate on petition P-06-1407, 'We want the Welsh Government to rescind and remove the disastrous 20mph law' (22 May 2024)

John Griffiths: I've finished my contribution, thank you, Mark.

7. Debate on petition P-06-1407, 'We want the Welsh Government to rescind and remove the disastrous 20mph law' (22 May 2024)

John Griffiths: May I begin by thanking the Petitions Committee for their general work? And certainly this petition has helped create that focus on this policy and its implementation and the early experience. I’d like to very much agree with what Lee Waters said about change always being difficult, and particularly, perhaps, change that affects car use, because I think we all know over quite a period of...

5. Member Debate under Standing Order 11.21(iv): Control of tobacco and nicotine products (15 May 2024)

John Griffiths: I very much support what we've heard from Mabon ap Gwynfor, which I think makes a very clear and strong case for that retail register. I know from my own constituency—I'm sure this applies to other Members—just how prevalent the problems caused by tobacco and vaping are at the current time. Vaping, for example, is increasingly a problem even in primary schools, where headteachers are very...

2. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Climate Change and Rural Affairs: Water Safety and Drowning Prevention (15 May 2024)

John Griffiths: I was very pleased to sponsor the water safety coalition event in the Pierhead building the other week, and it was very good to have you there to speak, Cabinet Secretary. You will know that the mother of Mark Allen, who tragically drowned in a reservoir in Wales, was there to speak about the importance of having throwlines at reservoirs, lakes and canals as part of improving our water...

2. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Climate Change and Rural Affairs: Water Safety and Drowning Prevention (15 May 2024)

John Griffiths: 6. What steps is the Cabinet Secretary taking to improve water safety and drowning prevention? OQ61111

7. Statement by the First Minister: Tata Steel (14 May 2024)

John Griffiths: First Minister, I know that you're fully aware of the importance of Llanwern to the regional economy, the people directly employed at the plant, the contractors, the suppliers and the spend in the local economy. The average age at Llanwern now is, I think, in the early thirties, and, of course, there are a number of apprentices there. So, it's easy to understand why there's a great deal of...

QNR: Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Education ( 8 May 2024)

John Griffiths: What is the Welsh Government's policy on the use of mobile phones in schools?

5. Statement by the Cabinet Secretary for Housing, Local Government and Planning: Working with local government to deliver more affordable homes ( 7 May 2024)

John Griffiths: Diolch, Dirprwy Lywydd. Cabinet Secretary, you've mentioned in your statement a new approach, in working with local authorities, to the local housing market assessments, and that that reaffirmed the need for significantly more affordable housing. The 20,000 target is based, I think, on 2019 estimates of additional housing need, and I just wonder, in the light of this new approach, if you...

4. Statement by the Cabinet Secretary for Climate Change and Rural Affairs: Priorities for climate change and rural affairs ( 7 May 2024)

John Griffiths: Cabinet Secretary, thank you for your statement. You will know that much good work is going on on the Gwent levels, a very precious area for nature and biodiversity—good work by local communities, local environmental groups and the Living Levels Landscape Partnership. And I chair a committee that works with all those partners to look at how we get better protection through the planning...

3. Statement by the First Minister: Senedd at 25 ( 7 May 2024)

John Griffiths: I am privileged to be one of the four current Members who were Members of the then Assembly back in 1999, along with you, of course, Llywydd, Jane Hutt and Lynne Neagle. I can certainly testify to the limitations of the original debating Chamber, where we did indeed have pillars in the way, and we had Members trying to intervene on other Members in a debate but not being seen and not being...
