2. Questions to the Minister for Health and Social Services: Dental Services (22 Nov 2023)

John Griffiths: Minister, in terms of the Bridges dental practice in Caldicot, I met with the partners there this week and they do feel very strongly that their long-standing commitment as a practice to NHS provision is being put at risk by the new NHS dental services contract, and that they do not feel that they're able to provide what they consider to be a proper standard of care for existing NHS patients...

2. Business Statement and Announcement (21 Nov 2023)

John Griffiths: I wonder, Minister, if we might have a Welsh Government statement on a policy of treating care experience as a protected characteristic. Local authorities, for example, can pass motions adopting that policy, and care experience could then be treated as a protected characteristic in terms of equality impact assessments. So, it is a policy that can have practical benefits, and it has been...

8. Welsh Conservatives Debate: International Men's Day (15 Nov 2023)

John Griffiths: Jack, thanks for taking an intervention. It so happens that I met with the Association for Project Safety Wales just yesterday, here at the Senedd. They're involved in the construction industry and they flagged up mental health as one of their primary concerns at the moment in terms of the training and safety issues that they engage in with a range of professionals in the construction and...

7. Debate on a Member's Legislative Proposal: A Bill to prevent the sale of single-use vapes (15 Nov 2023)

John Griffiths: May I begin by thanking Jenny for bringing forward this legislative proposal, which I very much support? I had a short debate here recently, Dirprwy Lywydd, along very similar lines to the ones that Jenny has just briefly outlined, and I very much agree that vaping is a growing public health menace, as well as having the environmental consequences that Jenny Rathbone has mentioned. In my own...

John Griffiths: What is the Welsh Government's current assessment of community cohesion in Wales?

1. Questions to the First Minister: Regional Inequalities (14 Nov 2023)

John Griffiths: First Minister, thankfully, the UK seems set fair for a badly needed Labour Government at the next general election, enabling a partnership with Welsh Government to address regional inequalities in the UK and Wales. Would the First Minister agree that the Gordon Brown report offers us a route to the sort of progress we need to see in Wales, with substantial investment and funding for rail and...

7. Plaid Cymru Debate: Conflict in Israel and Gaza ( 8 Nov 2023)

John Griffiths: It is heartbreaking to see the media coverage of events in Israel and Gaza, as many Members have already mentioned, and particularly, as Sioned said, the impact on children, mothers, expectant mothers, newborn babies. It's an awful, terrible, horrifying situation. We had the attacks on Israel and the taking of hostages, horrifying events that we rightly all condemn, and now the bombardment...

4. 90-second Statements ( 8 Nov 2023)

John Griffiths: This week is Living Wage Week. By paying the real living wage, employers are voluntarily taking a stand to ensure their employees can earn an amount that is sufficient to live on. It is calculated now to be £12 per hour, for 2023-24, up from £10.90 for the previous year, based on the rising cost of living. The rates were announced on 24 October, and employers have six months, until 1 May...

1. Questions to the Minister for Finance and Local Government: Corporate Joint Committees ( 8 Nov 2023)

John Griffiths: Thank you for that, Minister. I think it's two and a half years ago now that corporate joint committees were established, and obviously where they work together, local authorities within the CJCs, if it works as it should, they will add value to whatever area of activity is concerned in that CJC area. And I just wonder, Minister, what your assessment is of how well the south-east Wales...

9. Statement by the Minister for Economy: Tata Steel ( 7 Nov 2023)

John Griffiths: Minister, thank you for the mention of all the Tata plants in Wales, and particularly your visit to the Llanwern plant to speak with the unions and hear from them first-hand. As you will know, Llanwern is still a significant part of the local economy, and in fact the age profile at Llanwern now is younger than it has been for quite some time, which is also significant in terms of any...

5. Debate on the Local Government and Housing Committee Report, 'Local Authority Library and Leisure Services' (18 Oct 2023)

John Griffiths: Diolch yn fawr, Dirprwy Lywydd. May I thank all Members who took part in the debate? It's always nice to have Members not on the committee taking part as well, so I particularly welcome those contributions, and also local examples of the challenges we face but also potential ways of overcoming those challenges, protecting services and taking them forward.  I think there were some strong...

5. Debate on the Local Government and Housing Committee Report, 'Local Authority Library and Leisure Services' (18 Oct 2023)

John Griffiths: We explored the various models of service delivery in use and their advantages and disadvantages. There was a clear message that there should not be a one-size-fits-all approach. Different models will suit different local authorities, depending on geography, needs of the community, resources and many other factors. We agree it should be up to local authorities to decide what delivery model...

5. Debate on the Local Government and Housing Committee Report, 'Local Authority Library and Leisure Services' (18 Oct 2023)

John Griffiths: Diolch, Dirprwy Lywydd. I’m pleased to open this debate on the Local Government and Housing Committee’s report on local authority leisure and library services. I’d like to start by thanking all those who contributed to our inquiry, and to those who facilitated visits to libraries and leisure sites across Wales. Leisure centres and libraries enrich people’s lives and their communities....

John Griffiths: What are the Welsh Government's economic priorities for in and around Newport?

1. Questions to the First Minister: Lung Health Services (17 Oct 2023)

John Griffiths: First Minister, as we heard earlier in your exchange with the leader of the opposition, far too often, lung cancer cases are detected at a later stage, when treatment is very difficult, and an effective, targeted lung screening system in Wales would go a long way to detecting those cancer cases earlier, allowing for effective treatment, and so saving lives. Would you agree with me, First...

1. Questions to the First Minister: Lung Health Services (17 Oct 2023)

John Griffiths: 8. What steps is the Welsh Government taking to support lung health services? OQ60132

10. Short Debate: The impact of vaping across Wales (11 Oct 2023)

John Griffiths: I do believe this starkly illustrates the challenges schools are facing at both primary and secondary level across Wales, and we really need to redouble our efforts to find a solution, and redouble our efforts to educate parents who may know their children are vaping, and we need to challenge the suggestion that vaping poses little risk to health, and the attitudes that say that it is not as...
