5. Debate: The Local Government Settlement 2024-25 ( 5 Mar 2024)

Rhianon Passmore: Thank you, Deputy Llywydd. So, Minister, will you use this opportunity to underscore, once again, how dedicated the Welsh Labour Government is to funding Welsh local government under the most dire circumstances, and that it values local government, and that it understands local government and its commitment to delivering the vital public services that it's charged with delivering for the...

5. Debate: The Local Government Settlement 2024-25 ( 5 Mar 2024)

Rhianon Passmore: If I can just respond to that, I think if you actually look at the amounts of money that we are talking about, if we look at the billions that we have lost, and then if you look at some of the issues that you've brought to us on your agenda today, you'll find that that does not equate to a single crumb of that cake. [Interruption.] I will continue, Deputy Llywydd, if I'm allowed to.

5. Debate: The Local Government Settlement 2024-25 ( 5 Mar 2024)

Rhianon Passmore: Minister, I do welcome the Welsh Labour Government's continued dedication to prioritise protecting core front-line public services as far as is possible in the face of extreme budgetary pressures to Wales. This commitment is values-based and cognisant of the holistic and critical work of local government. The local government settlement for 2024-25 ensures that no authority will receive less...

4. Debate: The Final Budget 2024-25 ( 5 Mar 2024)

Rhianon Passmore: The 2024-25 budget round has presented the most stark and most painful budget choices for Wales in the quarter of a century since the dawn of devolution. The Tories have fundamentally mismanaged the UK economy over the last 14 years, giving us more than a decade of so-called austerity or cuts, the disastrous mini budget, a mind-blowing so-called cost-of-living crisis, record inflation and now...

8. Statement by the Deputy Minister for Social Partnership: HeartUnions Week (20 Feb 2024)

Rhianon Passmore: Thank you for your statement, Deputy Minister. I know the profound impact being a trade unionist has had on you personally, and also within my own political life. The HeartUnions Week is an important opportunity for us all to recognise and reflect on the important contribution trade unions make to public and civil life. I was particularly struck with your statement when you referenced the...

3. Statement by the Minister for Social Justice and Chief Whip: Anniversary of the full-scale invasion of Ukraine and Nation of Sanctuary update (20 Feb 2024)

Rhianon Passmore: Minister, thank you very much for your statement today. Two years may have passed since the predatory Russian invasion of Ukraine, but the threat to democracy and the values that we all here in this Chamber hold dear in Wales and the west has also greatly increased and not diminished. As Finland joins the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation and the middle east almost reaches the top to boiling...

7. Debate: The Steel Industry in Wales ( 6 Feb 2024)

Rhianon Passmore: I also welcome the Minister tabling this debate and I want to direct my remarks, really, to point 2 of the motion, as proposed by Lesley Griffiths, namely, 'Supports the case for further talks that allow for a longer transition that protects jobs for an ambitious, greener future across Tata facilities in Wales.' I wish to talk about the key Tata site in Gwent at Llanwern. For the communities...

6. Debate: The Draft Budget 2024-25 ( 6 Feb 2024)

Rhianon Passmore: Wales, today, faces the worst financial situation since devolution began and whilst the UK fiscal and constitutional processes are being eroded. So, let's be clear, Wales as a devolved legislature within the UK is not a minor department of state to be told at the last minute that expected consequentials do not suddenly exist for Wales. And as the majority of Welsh Government funding comes...

1. Questions to the First Minister: Enhancing NHS Services in Islwyn (30 Jan 2024)

Rhianon Passmore: Thank you, First Minister. The Welsh Government's and indeed this Senedd Cymru Welsh Parliament's ability to deliver and oversee vital public services is predicated on the finances it receives from the UK Tory Government in Westminster. The Welsh health Minister has informed the Senedd that the Welsh Government has escalated intervention at the Aneurin Bevan University Health Board. This is...

2. Questions to the Minister for Education and the Welsh Language: Attendance Rates in Secondary Schools (29 Nov 2023)

Rhianon Passmore: Attendance rates across all schools in Wales remain a concern. That's why I have established the attendance taskforce to set priorities and identify further tangible actions to drive improvements in attendance and re-engage our learners.

2. Questions to the Minister for Education and the Welsh Language: Attendance Rates in Secondary Schools (29 Nov 2023)

Rhianon Passmore: Thank you, Minister. You've gone on record as stating that addressing school absenteeism is your No. 1 priority, and, as you've acknowledged, educational data suggest absence levels are higher than before the global pandemic hit Wales and the UK. So, I very much welcome the brave decision to redefine the terminology of 'persistent' to include pupils missing 10 per cent of school compared to...

1. Questions to the First Minister: Royal Mail (21 Nov 2023)

Rhianon Passmore: Diolch. First Minister, the Royal Mail continues to play an important role in the lives of communities across Wales, but its workforce on the ground is overworked, physically exhausted and stressed to the limit. And yet, the privatised Royal Mail has been fined £5.6 million by Ofcom for failing to meet both its first and second-class delivery targets. In 2023, post rounds are physically...

1. Questions to the First Minister: Royal Mail (21 Nov 2023)

Rhianon Passmore: 7. How does the Welsh Government ensure that it effectively monitors the Royal Mail in Wales? OQ60308

10. Debate: Remembrance ( 7 Nov 2023)

Rhianon Passmore: The enduring importance of the annual period of remembrance to the families and communities of Islwyn is highly visible in every high street of my constituency. Volunteers have for weeks in Islwyn festooned public space, uncovered displays of love dedicated with gratitude for the ultimate sacrifices made. This weekend organised remembrance services are being held across Islwyn, and I also...

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

Rhianon Passmore: Minister, you told the media, during a news conference earlier, that if all blast furnace activities end without an alternative way to make primary steel, then the UK could be the only G7 country not to have primary steel making capability, and this in today's volatile world is neither sensible nor secure. So, it's imperative that Tata now engage with deep and meaningful consultation with...
