5. Urgent Debate: Job losses at Tata Steel and the future of the steel industry in Wales (24 Jan 2024)

John Griffiths: We've heard some very powerful contributions already today, haven't we, in terms of the effects of the announcement by Tata and the approach of the UK Government. I thought my colleague David Rees spoke incredibly powerfully on behalf of those steelworkers in Port Talbot and all those other dependent businesses and the local community. I was very pleased as well that David described the...

4. 90-second Statements (24 Jan 2024)

John Griffiths: Diolch, Llywydd. I would like to pay tribute to Newport East's Lliswerry Runners—a local running club for people of all backgrounds, ethnicities, ages and abilities. They provide opportunities for members of the community to keep both physically fit, through regular exercise and movement, and mentally well, through the community and friendship that members will find by joining the group....

2. Questions to the Minister for Rural Affairs and North Wales, and Trefnydd: Responsible Dog Ownership (24 Jan 2024)

John Griffiths: Minister, last October in the St Julian's area of Newport East, there was an attack by an XL bully dog on a delivery driver, which left that driver in fear for his life. There are many examples, I know, across Wales, unfortunately. So, we obviously need to think about how we promote more responsible dog ownership. The Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals have been calling on...

1. Questions to the Minister for Finance and Local Government: Public Libraries (24 Jan 2024)

John Griffiths: Minister, community-run libraries can be a catalyst for wider community development. In my constituency of Newport East we have Llyfrgell Maindee Library, which operates in a very multicultural area, and has been the catalyst for much community development—a community cafe, a performance space, the greening of the local area, amongst other initiatives. Next month, Maindee library will be...

8. Statement by the Minister for Education and the Welsh Language: Tackling the impact of poverty on attainment (23 Jan 2024)

John Griffiths: Diolch, Dirprwy Lywydd. Minister, thank you very much for visiting Maindee Primary School this morning, I thought it was a great way to start the working day. You will have seen first-hand, Minister, the great ethnic diversity of the school and I'm sure that seeing, first-hand, the good work going on and meeting the school team, the pupils and their families will have been a very strong...

4. Statement by the Minister for Social Justice and Chief Whip: The Child Poverty Strategy for Wales (23 Jan 2024)

John Griffiths: Diolch, Llywydd, Thank you very much for your statement today, Minister. In the last Senedd term, the Equality, Local Government and Communities Committee, which I chaired, made, I think, some important recommendations and did some important work in this area, including the need for a Welsh benefits system. The Bevan Foundation itself has done some very good work, I think, in supporting that...

3. Statement by the Minister for Economy: Tata Steel (23 Jan 2024)

John Griffiths: Minister, in my experience, people readily understand the strategic importance of the steel industry—for defence, for manufacturing, for construction and much else. They know it's an uncertain world, and our competitor countries seem to understand that as well. As you say, we need to find a bridge through somehow to the time when we will have a UK Labour Government that will also understand...

1. Questions to the First Minister: Local Development Plans (23 Jan 2024)

John Griffiths: First Minister, local authorities are increasingly, and rightly, I think, taking an expansive approach to their replacement local development plans, looking at placemaking, how quality life is achieved through encouraging outdoor activity, green space, active travel, a whole host of child-friendly and engaging children with the great outdoors initiatives. And I think that's absolutely right,...

7. Plaid Cymru Debate: Apprenticeships (17 Jan 2024)

John Griffiths: I believe the Welsh Government has a strong record in terms of developing apprenticeship programmes here in Wales, and it really is very concerning that we're now in a position where some of that progress will be weakened. And as Huw Irranca-Davies and Jack Sargeant said, it is very much a result of UK Government austerity, their failure to replace European funding as promised, the...

2. Questions to the Minister for Health and Social Services: Primary Healthcare in Newport East (10 Jan 2024)

John Griffiths: Thank you for that, Minister. It's very good to see ongoing investment in those primary healthcare services, and I'm very pleased that, in Ringland in Newport East, we will have a new integrated health and well-being centre hopefully opening in around a year's time. But in other parts of Newport East there is considerable community concern regarding the lack of adequate primary healthcare...

2. Questions to the Minister for Health and Social Services: Primary Healthcare in Newport East (10 Jan 2024)

John Griffiths: 2. What is the Welsh Government's current assessment of the availability of primary healthcare services in Newport East? OQ60481

6. Debate on a Statement: The Draft Budget 2024-25 ( 9 Jan 2024)

John Griffiths: Within the limited funds available after so many years of austerity from the UK Government, I think all of us here should recognise—although, obviously, not all do—that this is an extremely difficult budget for the Welsh Government to take forward. But although that is so obviously the case, Llywydd, I would nonetheless like to flag up a couple of priorities within the great difficulty...

4. Statement by the Minister for Economy: The compound semiconductor industry ( 9 Jan 2024)

John Griffiths: Minister, thank you very much for this statement today, highlighting the very positive nature of the semiconductor industry for Wales, and particularly for south-east Wales and, indeed, the constituents of my colleague Jayne Bryant and myself and other neighbouring authorities, because we know the industry really does provide very high-quality, well-rewarded jobs. And, as you say, there is...

7. Debate on a Member's Legislative Proposal: A Bill on the regulation of debt collectors (13 Dec 2023)

John Griffiths: Could I start by congratulating Jack for bringing forward this Member's legislative proposal today, and also pay tribute to Citizens Advice, for the very good work that they do with so many people who rely on their services, particularly during this time of a cost-of-living crisis? It's quite clear that there are real problems here that need to be dealt with. The one aspect I'd like to...

QNR: Questions to the First Minister (12 Dec 2023)

John Griffiths: How is the Welsh Government working with businesses to create employment opportunities in Newport?

1. Questions to the Minister for Finance and Local Government: Local Authority Services ( 6 Dec 2023)

John Griffiths: Thank you for that response, Minister. I think we know that, looking at our 22 local authorities, there is still considerable variation in delivery of services. Notwithstanding local circumstances, geography and demographics, I think evaluation does show that local authorities have their areas of strength, of course, but also areas of relative weakness in effectiveness of service delivery. We...

1. Questions to the Minister for Finance and Local Government: Local Authority Services ( 6 Dec 2023)

John Griffiths: 9. What steps will the Welsh Government take to work with local government to promote good practice across local authorities in the delivery of services? OQ60392
