Ninety-one per cent of children and young people reported that they'd actually had fun, and this is so important, whilst 84 per cent said that the extra school hours helped them socialise with peers,...

8. Statement by the Deputy Minister for Social Partnership: Armed Forces Day (20 Jun 2023)

Rhianon Passmore: Diolch, Llywydd. Thank you for this statement, and I'm glad it's been mentioned, Saturday's event in Newport to mark Armed Forces Day in Wales. It's of profound importance to us.  It is still astonishing, if I go to my question, Llywydd, that opinion polls suggest that half of British people, only half of British people—are cognisant of what D-day actually was and its importance to us....

Rhianon Passmore: Diolch, Minister. A week ago today you made public your letter to the UK Government expressing the view that investment in Wales was at risk due to the continued delay of the UK Government to publish its UK semiconductor strategy. Minister, your words clearly carry weight in the corridors of 10 Downing Street, as less than 48 hours later the Prime Minister was announcing in Japan his...

4. Statement by the Counsel General and Minister for the Constitution: Electoral Reform (16 May 2023)

Rhianon Passmore: I'm coming to that now. For any Government to actively seek to place additional cost onto voters, to purchase ID during an economic crisis, is at best ill-advised and foolish, and at worst is purposeful disenfranchisement, and undemocratic. We must all strive to increase the number of people who are able to vote. Thank you.

4. Statement by the Counsel General and Minister for the Constitution: Electoral Reform (16 May 2023)

Rhianon Passmore: Counsel General, thank you for this important statement today. Democracy is a fragile flower that requires, from all democrats, constant vigilance, but also it requires good policy to enable participation. Minister, you stated earlier that the Electoral Commission in their annual report on public attitudes showed that 66 per cent of people see low turnout as a problem. Even at the very...

1. Questions to the First Minister: The Construction Industry (16 May 2023)

In Wales, construction workloads have increased, almost entirely driven by publicly funded...

9. Welsh Conservatives Debate: Local government funding (29 Mar 2023)

Rhianon Passmore: It's the same old—. Are you saying social care workers don't have ambition?

9. Welsh Conservatives Debate: Local government funding (29 Mar 2023)

Rhianon Passmore: It's the same old Tories: one rule for the rich and another rule for the working man and woman. And it is apt that the BBC have made a new adaptation of Charles Dickens for Sunday evenings, as the present Tory Government is taking the UK back to the Victorian age—and that is not me just saying this; go and talk to the International Monetary Fund. So, only, Deputy Llywydd—[Interruption.]...

9. Welsh Conservatives Debate: Local government funding (29 Mar 2023)

Rhianon Passmore: So, the richest Prime Minister that we have ever known—[Interruption.]—I would like to finish—is paying a lower tax rate than working people, who face the highest tax burden in 70 years. How is that fair? How is that fair to the Welsh taxpayer, how is it fair to social care workers, who are paying their way? 

9. Welsh Conservatives Debate: Local government funding (29 Mar 2023)

Rhianon Passmore: It's obvious that the Conservative Party opposite have no idea what the duties and responsibilities of local government are, so thank you for extrapolating on that. So, I rise to support the amendments tabled by Lesley Griffiths. We have now endured more than a decade of Tory austerity, and it will become a teenager this May. From David Cameron through Theresa May to Boris Johnson, Liz Truss...

Rhianon Passmore: Diolch, Llywydd. I do welcome the responses of the Minister to the Chamber, so thank you for making the statement. One of the driving forces entering active politics was seeking to tackle the scourge and impacts of poverty, providing equality of opportunity for all, not based on parental wealth, in education and the arts. There's little doubt that education is one of the most profound tools...

7. Plaid Cymru Debate: Bus emergency scheme (22 Mar 2023)

6. Welsh Conservatives Debate: Minister for Health and Social Services (22 Mar 2023)

Rhianon Passmore: Would you possibly take an intervention?

6. Welsh Conservatives Debate: Minister for Health and Social Services (22 Mar 2023)

Rhianon Passmore: Thank you so much for that. Bearing in mind the extreme challenges that NHS services are facing across the entire United Kingdom, why was there no extra funding for the NHS in the spring budget?
