John Griffiths: 3. How is Welsh Government supporting the voluntary sector and community groups during the cost-of-living crisis? OQ60787

1. Questions to the First Minister: Pressures on Farmers ( 5 Mar 2024)

John Griffiths: First Minister, I'm glad to see that work has begun on a review of agricultural pollution regulation, because evidence shows that those regulations are badly needed. For example, the River Usk—which, of course, the constituency Member for Monmouth, Peter Fox, will know very well—is in a very poor condition, and figures show that around two thirds of the responsibility for that poor...

4. 90-second Statements (28 Feb 2024)

John Griffiths: Last Saturday, Dan Simms of Caldicot began the mammoth feat of walking from Caldicot castle all the way to Amsterdam in memory of his two close friends who sadly took their own lives, and to raise awareness of men's mental health and the importance of speaking up when you are feeling down. Three quarters of the people who took their own life in 2022 were men, and tragically, suicide rates...

1. Questions to the Minister for Finance and Local Government: Engagement with Local Communities (28 Feb 2024)

John Griffiths: Minister, we know that devolution to Wales doesn't stop at the Senedd and with Members of the Senedd, and our local authorities have a vital role to play in exercising their own local democratic mandate. Again, that pulling down of power doesn't stop with local authorities, it must very much reach our communities. I think it's absolutely vital that local authorities work in that bottom-up...

1. Questions to the Minister for Finance and Local Government: Engagement with Local Communities (28 Feb 2024)

John Griffiths: 3. How does the Welsh Government work with local government to develop their engagement with, and empowerment of, local communities? OQ60755

QNR: Questions to the Minister for Rural Affairs and North Wales, and Trefnydd (28 Feb 2024)

John Griffiths: Will the Minister provide an update on the development of the animal welfare plan for Wales?

2. Questions to the Minister for Education and the Welsh Language: Early Years Education (21 Feb 2024)

John Griffiths: Thanks for that, Minister. I think it’s clear from an abundance of evidence just how important the early years are, and I know that it’s one of the Welsh Government’s cross-cutting priorities, and I think nought to seven years is defined as those early years. And we know that within that, the first three years are particularly important, given the rapid neurological growth during those...

2. Questions to the Minister for Education and the Welsh Language: Supporting Learners (21 Feb 2024)

John Griffiths: Diolch, Llywydd. One very important development for learners in south-east Wales, Minister, is the relocation of the Coleg Gwent Newport campus to the city centre. This will put learning in the faces of the wider community in Newport, and I think lead to very good progression routes—indeed, also through to higher education, with the University of South Wales Newport campus on the doorstep....

1. Questions to the Minister for Climate Change: Urban Greening (21 Feb 2024)

John Griffiths: Thank you for that, Minister. Most people in Wales live in urban areas and greening that urban environment—their doorstep environment—I think is very important to their quality of life, and also very important in terms of buying in support for the environmental policies of the Welsh Government and the efforts to tackle climate change and develop the sort of behavioural change we need to...

1. Questions to the Minister for Climate Change: Urban Greening (21 Feb 2024)

John Griffiths: 9. What assessment has the Welsh Government made of the impact of its policies for the greening of urban areas? OQ60705

2. Questions to the Minister for Education and the Welsh Language: Early Years Education (21 Feb 2024)

John Griffiths: 7. What assessment has the Welsh Government made of the impact of its policies on early years education? OQ60704

6. Statement by the Minister for Social Justice and Chief Whip: The Welsh Benefits System and Charter (20 Feb 2024)

John Griffiths: Thank you for your work on this, Minister. It is very gratifying to see the work that the Equality, Local Government and Communities Committee did with organisations like the Bevan Foundation—to see that coming to fruition and progressing through the Welsh Government and the co-operation agreement is very heartening indeed. It is about reducing outgoings and maximising income for families...

5. Debate on the Local Government and Housing Committee Report, 'Diversity in Local Government' ( 7 Feb 2024)

John Griffiths: Diolch, Dirprwy Lywydd. May I thank all those who have taken part in this debate for their contributions, starting with Joel James? I very much agree with Joel, who is, of course, a member of the committee, in terms of the importance of all of us thinking long and hard about what we say and the way that we conduct ourselves, in terms of the abuse that's prevalent in politics. It was,...

5. Debate on the Local Government and Housing Committee Report, 'Diversity in Local Government' ( 7 Feb 2024)

John Griffiths: Dirprwy Lywydd, since the 2019 report, arrangements for job sharing amongst members of council executives have been formalised. This is a welcome development. However, to date, this option has not been utilised by many authorities. It is clear that greater awareness of the potential benefits and challenges of job sharing is needed. The guidance recently published by the Welsh Government,...

5. Debate on the Local Government and Housing Committee Report, 'Diversity in Local Government' ( 7 Feb 2024)

John Griffiths: Committing to increasing diversity requires strong leadership, and progress made by some local authorities is encouraging and demonstrates what can be achieved. Our report recognises where progress has taken place. We identified good practice and suggest ways of sharing that with peers across Wales. Many of our recommendations, therefore, call for good practice to be identified and shared by...

5. Debate on the Local Government and Housing Committee Report, 'Diversity in Local Government' ( 7 Feb 2024)

John Griffiths: Diolch, Dirprwy Lywydd. I'm pleased to open today's debate on the Local Government and Housing Committee's report on diversity in local government. And I would like to start by thanking all those who contributed to our inquiry, including those who provided oral and written evidence and the councillors who shared their personal experiences with us through the focus groups we held.  The...

QNR: Questions to the Minister for Health and Social Services ( 7 Feb 2024)

John Griffiths: What further steps will the Welsh Government take to support people with unmet health needs?

8. & 9. The general principles of the Elections and Elected Bodies (Wales) Bill and the financial resolution in respect of the Elections and Elected Bodies (Wales) Bill ( 6 Feb 2024)

John Griffiths: —the Senedd, Dirprwy Lywydd, and I'm sure, as we say, that what the Counsel General has said earlier will very much be reflected in that ongoing debate. There are some other matters that I wished to cover, Dirprwy Lywydd, but I will take your advice and conclude at this point. But, obviously, we will have an ongoing debate on these matters, as this legislation proceeds.

8. & 9. The general principles of the Elections and Elected Bodies (Wales) Bill and the financial resolution in respect of the Elections and Elected Bodies (Wales) Bill ( 6 Feb 2024)

John Griffiths: This Bill includes important provisions around the registration of voters without application or 'automatic registration', as it's termed. The aim of the provisions is to increase the registration of people eligible to vote by making it easier for them to do so. As a committee, we welcome this intention. The evidence presented to us overwhelmingly supported the principle of introducing...
