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....

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...

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...

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

John Griffiths: Here in Wales and the UK, the debate on vaping is intensifying, as experience grows and evidence of impacts continues to emerge. Back in 2016, the then Assembly opposition parties voted against the Labour administration’s legislation to put vaping on the same footing as smoking tobacco in restricting use in enclosed and other public places. Had that vote gone the other way, we would have...

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

John Griffiths: Diolch, Llywydd. The impact of vaping across Wales, Llywydd—and we will have contributions from Jayne Bryant and Joel James. Vaping has become a familiar and growing feature of our lives. Indeed, across the world, clouds of vapour and a variety of smells contaminate the air. All over the globe there is concern, and a number of different approaches to address those concerns and the harms...

6. Debate on a Member's Legislative Proposal: A Bill to promote responsible dog ownership (11 Oct 2023)

John Griffiths: I very much welcome this timely debate, and it is shocking, isn't it, to hear of these dog attacks and their consequences and fatalities here in Wales. And we know that this is a picture across the UK and much further afield. We've had dog attacks in Newport East—fortunately not fatal, but dog attacks that have had consequences for the people involved in terms of the shock and the way they...

3. Questions to the Senedd Commission: Healthy and Active Lifestyles (11 Oct 2023)

John Griffiths: Diolch yn fawr. Yesterday, I was pleased to organise a well-being run and walk for Members of the Senedd. James, who's in the Chamber, was one who took part, as well as the health Minister, the education Minister, Jane Dodds, and others. It's always best not to start a list, isn't it, because you always forget somebody. [Laughter.] But it was very good, and we had health and sports people...

3. Statement by the Minister for Climate Change: Ending homelessness in Wales (10 Oct 2023)

John Griffiths: Minister, as you've mentioned many a time, Llamau is one of the organisations in Wales that has a great deal of experience and knowledge to bring to the table, and recently they've been, as ever, looking at the current trends and situation of young people in Wales as far as homelessness is concerned, and they are alarmed that, unfortunately, youth homelessness is increasing at a very worrying...

5. Debate on the Local Government and Housing Committee Report, 'The Right to Adequate Housing' ( 4 Oct 2023)

John Griffiths: And what Mabon so powerfully set out for us in terms of Polly and his experience in coming across Polly at his home here in Cardiff is, unfortunately, as we know, not an isolated problem, but, again, as the Minister said, so many people sleeping rough in Wales have these multiple needs, have very difficult backgrounds in terms of their upbringing and their lives, and it will take an...

5. Debate on the Local Government and Housing Committee Report, 'The Right to Adequate Housing' ( 4 Oct 2023)

John Griffiths: Diolch, Dirprwy Lywydd. May I begin by thanking all those who took part in this debate today for their interest and commitment to this extremely important area of strategy, policy and delivery, and thank Sam Rowlands for his work on the committee, and agree with Sam that this is indeed a major challenge of our age, and welcome Sam's recognition as well that these are problems that go far...

5. Debate on the Local Government and Housing Committee Report, 'The Right to Adequate Housing' ( 4 Oct 2023)

John Griffiths: Diolch, Dirprwy Lywydd. I'm very pleased to open today's debate on the Local Government and Housing Committee’s report on the right to adequate housing. Ensuring that everyone in Wales has a safe place to call home is something that I'm sure we all aspire to. Several countries have the right to adequate housing enshrined in law, and there have been calls for such a right to be incorporated...
