10. Short Debate: Gaza — A Welsh response ( 1 May 2024)

John Griffiths: Humanity must prevail in Palestine and Israel. My constituents tell me that they want an immediate and permanent ceasefire, the release of hostages, proper levels of humanitarian aid, and the beginnings of a political solution that will last. António Guterres, the Secretary General of the United Nations has spoken very powerfully during this awful period of time. He has said, 'These are...

3. Statement by the Cabinet Secretary for Economy, Energy and Welsh Language: Tata Steel (30 Apr 2024)

John Griffiths: Cabinet Secretary, Llanwern is a major player, still, in the local economy in Newport and the surrounding area, including the Gwent valleys, providing well-paid, highly skilled jobs, and the age profile is actually a lot younger than many people assume, with, of course, a number of apprentices supported by the Welsh Government. So, as matters proceed, Cabinet Secretary, will you ensure that...

2. Business Statement and Announcement (30 Apr 2024)

John Griffiths: Cabinet Secretary, I've been supporting a constituent, Lucy Vers, whose six-year-old son, Elliot, has Duchenne muscular dystrophy, a rare condition that involves muscular wasting and is life limiting. Much of her concern has been around access to clinical trials, and, on occasion, she's taken Elliot all the way from south Wales to Newcastle just for a blood test, as part of those clinical...

1. Questions to the First Minister: Biodiversity Loss (30 Apr 2024)

John Griffiths: First Minister, the Gwent levels are a great asset for Wales, and, certainly, in my local area in Newport East. Luckily, we have the living levels partnership doing a great deal of work to take forward the environment and biodiversity with wildlife groups and key partners. I'm the species champion for the water vole, and we see the water vole now spreading across that Gwent levels area as one...

1. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for North Wales and Transport: Active Travel (24 Apr 2024)

John Griffiths: Cabinet Secretary, one of the important provisions of the Active Travel (Wales) Act 2013 is the requirement that Welsh Ministers and local authorities take reasonable steps to improve facilities for walkers and cyclists when improving or maintaining the highway. Building these active travel provisions into road maintenance and construction is far more cost-effective than retrofitting, of...

6. Statement by the Cabinet Secretary for North Wales and Transport: Priorities for Transport: Listening, partnership, making change (23 Apr 2024)

John Griffiths: May I thank the Cabinet Secretary for his statement today? I very much agree that there is a strong consensus in this Chamber and also out in our communities that the 20 mph policy is fundamentally right, and is needed to protect our communities, particularly children. That's what I hear from people in Newport East. But they do also very much agree that there are a small number of roads that...

4. Statement by the Cabinet Secretary for Health and Social Care: Creating a smoke-free generation and tackling youth vaping (23 Apr 2024)

John Griffiths: I'd like to congratulate Welsh Government on its work for a smoke-free Wales and a smoke-free generation, and also congratulate UK Government for the bold steps it's taken to help create that smoke-free generation. Cabinet Secretary, as far as registration is concerned, it was, actually, discussed at the last meeting of the cross-party group on smoking and health, where it was felt that it...

3. Questions to the Counsel General: Youth Reoffenders (23 Apr 2024)

John Griffiths: Counsel General, I believe it's very important, when we look at youth justice, that we take a child-centred approach, and see a child as a child first and an offender second, and I'm very pleased to say that this is the approach of the Newport youth justice service's team. They've actually been lauded by the University of Warwick for taking a unique and groundbreaking approach in relation...

1. Questions to the First Minister: The Situation in Gaza (23 Apr 2024)

John Griffiths: First Minister, many families in Newport East have been and are affected by the events in Israel and Gaza, and what they want, as we've already touched upon, is an immediate and permanent ceasefire, the release of hostages, sufficient humanitarian aid finding its way into Gaza and, indeed, the beginnings of a political process that will bring a lasting peaceful solution. António Guterres,...

8. Welsh Conservatives Debate: Transport (17 Apr 2024)

John Griffiths: Diolch, Llywydd. As we discussed earlier during our question sessions, climate change demands substantial change to our transport system here in Wales, and particularly we need a modal shift from road use to use of public transport and active travel, and that is an absolute driver, in the climate emergency, for transport policy here in Wales. In south-east Wales, Llywydd, we've had the Burns...

5. Debate on the General Principles of the Residential Outdoor Education (Wales) Bill (17 Apr 2024)

John Griffiths: I'd like to begin by thanking Sam Rowlands for bringing forward these issues for discussion in the way that he has. I do believe, as others have said, that it's obviously very important that the outdoors, connecting with nature and activity, have a very central role in the educational experience of our children and young people, and that does happen in the general educational experience that...

8. & 9. The general principles of the Local Government Finance (Wales) Bill and the financial resolution in respect of the Local Government Finance (Wales) Bill (16 Apr 2024)

John Griffiths: Diolch, Dirprwy Lywydd. I'm very pleased to speak today as Chair of the Local Government and Housing Committee, which has undertaken Stage 1 scrutiny of this Bill. I would like to start by thanking all those who contributed to the committee's inquiry and the Cabinet Secretary for her response to our report. The Bill, of course, contains a range of provisions relating to council tax and...

1. Questions to the First Minister: Transport (16 Apr 2024)

John Griffiths: First Minister, we do need a much more integrated transport system in Wales, and in south-east Wales, of course, we’ve had the Burns commission. We now have the Burns delivery unit, working to create that more integrated system. A very important part of that is new railway stations, three of which are proposed for Newport East, at Magor, Llanwern and Somerton. Of course, rail infrastructure...

John Griffiths: Vaughan Gething.

6. Debate on the Public Accounts and Public Administration Committee Report, 'Town Centre Regeneration' (13 Mar 2024)

John Griffiths: I'd like to begin by thanking the committee for its report, which I think is very timely and very useful. There is quite a degree of common ground, isn't there, across the Chamber, as we’ve already heard, and we’re all familiar with the challenges of online shopping, out-of-centre development, the effects of the pandemic, and many others. It’s a very challenging set of circumstances, so...

1. Questions to the First Minister: Climate Change in Newport East (12 Mar 2024)

John Griffiths: Thank you very much for that answer, First Minister. We know that Wales is a world leader in municipal recycling rates, and I'm very pleased that you've recognised the role of Newport City Council, and I think the same is true of Monmouthshire County Council in my area, in terms of the work that they've carried out and the contribution that they have made. Under devolution, First Minister,...

1. Questions to the Minister for Social Justice and Chief Whip: The Cost-of-living Crisis ( 6 Mar 2024)

John Griffiths: Thank you for that, Minister. I recently visited the Eton Road community centre in Maindee in my constituency. They have done so much good work over so many years and continue to run many advice sessions and a host of different activities, Minister, as I'm sure you're aware. Amongst those activities is a youth project, which involves over 100 children and five sessions a week. It's mainly...
