6. Statement by the Cabinet Secretary for North Wales and Transport: D-day and Armed Forces Week (11 Jun 2024)

Rhianon Passmore: Thank you for the important statement, Cabinet Secretary. I was honoured to represent the communities of Islwyn constituency at a D-day memorial service organised by the Royal British Legion district branch of the war memorial in Cefn Fforest, so I wish to also recognise their partnership working with Cefn Fforest community association, and the vital work of Caerphilly county borough's armed...

1. Questions to the First Minister: The Legislative Programme (11 Jun 2024)

Rhianon Passmore: First Minister, the Welsh Labour Government was resoundingly re-elected by the people of Wales in 2021, to deliver a stronger, fairer and greener Wales. First Minister, as you contemplate your first legislative statement, which you're due to deliver to the Senedd before the summer recess, on behalf of my constituents in Islwyn, can I ask you to consider how the Welsh Labour Government can...

7. Plaid Cymru Debate: HS2 funding ( 5 Jun 2024)

Rhianon Passmore: It is, but we cannot escape, can we, the abysmal record in terms of rail electrification that hasn't happened in Wales, and we cannot negate that lack of rail spend for Wales, and we must look at this with clarity. The Welsh Labour Government has further invested £160 million upgrading the railway line running through Islwyn communities. This is an investment responsibility of the UK...

7. Plaid Cymru Debate: HS2 funding ( 5 Jun 2024)

Rhianon Passmore: I’m also happy to support this motion. High speed 2 construction would have seen the line connect London and Birmingham; it would have run nowhere near Wales and been of no benefit to Welsh rail passengers. Up until next year, Wales will have missed out on around £350 million as a result of the incorrect classification of HS2 as an England-Wales project, and that amount due is also likely...

2. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Health and Social Care: Ambulance Call-response Strategies ( 5 Jun 2024)

Rhianon Passmore: I missed the first bit. Sorry, I do apologise.

2. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Health and Social Care: The Aneurin Bevan University Health Board ( 5 Jun 2024)

Rhianon Passmore: Thank you. And I'll repeat, Cabinet Secretary, that Robert Holcombe, the Aneurin Bevan University Health Board's finance chief, told the board's main meeting that it has a worst-case scenario of a £60 million deficit and a best case of a £48.9 million deficit. He then went on to detail the board's month one report of just under £5 million, equating to the established worst-case scenario....

2. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Health and Social Care: Ambulance Call-response Strategies ( 5 Jun 2024)

Rhianon Passmore: Diolch, Llywydd. Cabinet Secretary, Robert Holcombe, the Aneurin Bevan University Health Board's finance chief—

2. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Health and Social Care: The Aneurin Bevan University Health Board ( 5 Jun 2024)

Rhianon Passmore: 7. How does the Welsh Government monitor the finances of the Aneurin Bevan University Health Board? OQ61208

8. Debate: The Steel Industry in Wales ( 4 Jun 2024)

Rhianon Passmore: So, I rise to support the motion tabled by Jane Hutt, and I'm fundamentally of the mind that the motion is of profound importance to UK and Wales plc, namely that this Senedd believes retaining the capacity to produce primary steel in Wales is central to Wales's economic interests and the pathway to net zero. And I stress again, not only to Wales, but the United Kingdom. And 'a devolved...

5. Statement by the Cabinet Secretary for Culture and Social Justice: Culture and Social Justice — Reaffirmation of our values ( 4 Jun 2024)

Rhianon Passmore: Cabinet Secretary, thank you very much for the statement, and I'm going to restrain my comments today to the performance sector of Wales. Welsh culture, Welsh arts and the music of Wales are for everyone, and not just for the elite or those who can afford it. But it is also right that excellence as a concept is recognised within our cultural strategy, and currently it is not. Achieving...

4. Statement by the Cabinet Secretary for Education: Consultation on the School Year ( 4 Jun 2024)

Rhianon Passmore: I wish to welcome the statement by the Cabinet Secretary for Education, and there are arguments and value on both sides of this issue. But the consultation on the change to the school calendar in Wales has received 16,000 responses, and we must note that this is the biggest ever education consultation in Wales. The list of organisations opposed is very extensive, as is the very mixed response...

1. Questions to the First Minister: The Welfare of Racing Greyhounds ( 4 Jun 2024)

Rhianon Passmore: First Minister, 2 June marks National Greyhound Day. It is a timely reminder that Wales is one of only 10 countries across the entire globe—this includes all UK nations—where commercial greyhound racing still takes place in 2024. Published results from races and trials at the Valley Greyhounds stadium, which sits within the Senedd seat of Islwyn, show that from 3 March to 29 May this year...

3. Business Statement and Announcement (21 May 2024)

Rhianon Passmore: Cabinet Secretary, Governments are ultimately the leading responsible custodians of our cultural heritage and of the architecture within it. I wish to ask for a statement to this place that outlines the analysis made of the combined impacts of the cumulative cuts from both the arts councils in England and Wales on the ability of WNO to function, perform and tour; the assessment made of the...

7. Welsh Conservatives Debate: GP practices and funding (15 May 2024)

Rhianon Passmore: I rise to discuss today, in support of the amendment tabled by Jane Hutt. Earlier this year, I visited North Celynen general practice in Crumlin, within my constituency of Islwyn, and the staff who work there are actually on the front line of our beloved national health service. They tell me first-hand of the exponential and scalic increase in patient demand. They tell me of the complexity of...

1. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Finance, Constitution and Cabinet Office: HS2 Consequential Funding (15 May 2024)

Rhianon Passmore: Thank you. Cabinet Secretary, in a written answer to me yesterday, the First Minister stated that the Welsh Government budget is worth £700 million less than when it was agreed. So, if you add to this the clearly disgraceful decision by the UK Government to class HS2 as an England-and-Wales-only project, even though not an inch of track—or centimetre, even—will be built on Welsh soil,...

1. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Finance, Constitution and Cabinet Office: HS2 Consequential Funding (15 May 2024)

Rhianon Passmore: 7. What assessment has the Cabinet Secretary made of the funding lost to Wales as a result of the UK Government's refusal to class HS2 as an England-only project? OQ61108

7. Statement by the First Minister: Tata Steel (14 May 2024)

Rhianon Passmore: Diolch, Llywydd. First Minister, I welcome your statement and your clearly expressed desire to see the UK remain a primary steel-making nation. We cannot become the only G7 nation without this capacity, forced to rely on competitor states for steel, which strengthen, or not, the United Kingdom. So, whilst the critics carp from the sidelines, a Welsh First Minister must, as you have done, pull...

3. Statement by the Cabinet Secretary for Education: Our national mission — delivering on Wales’s education priorities (14 May 2024)

Rhianon Passmore: So, Cabinet Secretary, on behalf of Islwyn, may I firstly welcome you to your post, and place on record my appreciation for your visit to Islwyn on one of your earliest engagements as Cabinet Secretary for Education, and also for your listening approach to the significant challenges and priorities ahead? It was wonderful to welcome you to Ysgol Gymraeg Cwm Gwyddon for its official opening in...
