7. Topical Questions: Tata Steel (10 Jul 2024)

Sioned Williams: Diolch, Llywydd. We were frequently told by Labour politicians that a change in Westminster of Government would, in your words, change 'completely the context for steel production in the UK.' You said that the view of the Welsh Government is that 'a better deal, both for steel and for the workforce, is available and should have been the kind of deal negotiated between the UK Government and...

10. Short Debate: Safer skin: The role of schools in preventing skin cancer ( 3 Jul 2024)

Sioned Williams: Some foodbanks have even started to include sunscreen as an item that they provide, but only a small number of foodbanks do this at the moment. The Government has, quite rightly, invested in improving access to menstrual products in schools, so I'd like to know whether the Government has considered investigating the feasibility of providing high-quality, effective sunscreen to schools. Also,...

10. Short Debate: Safer skin: The role of schools in preventing skin cancer ( 3 Jul 2024)

Sioned Williams: Although skin cancer is treatable and the survival rate is very high and improving, over 2,000 people will still die each year across the UK; that’s more than six people every day. It’s essential, therefore, that people try to reduce their risk in the first place, and that is why the Welsh Government really need to have a focus on that preventive approach. As with many health issues we...

10. Short Debate: Safer skin: The role of schools in preventing skin cancer ( 3 Jul 2024)

Sioned Williams: Exposure to UV from the sun as well as the use of sunbeds is the primary cause of skin cancer. In 2019, skin cancers accounted for almost half of all cancers in Wales—half. And it is by far the most common cancer affecting Welsh people and, sadly, rates are increasing. Between 2016 and 2019, rates of skin cancer increased by 8 per cent, and the condition now makes up an increasing...

10. Short Debate: Safer skin: The role of schools in preventing skin cancer ( 3 Jul 2024)

Sioned Williams: And I will be giving a minute of my time to Mabon ap Gwynfor and Siân Gwenllian.  The warmer weather is finally here—well, I think so, anyway—so more people will have put away their heavy clothes and will be spending more time outdoors, whether relaxing in the garden or having fun on the beach or in the park. Summer gives us all the opportunity to enjoy more of what Wales has to offer...

10. Short Debate: Safer skin: The role of schools in preventing skin cancer ( 3 Jul 2024)

Sioned Williams: Diolch, Dirprwy Lywydd. My debate will be on safer skin, the importance of education in preventing skin cancer. 

3. Statement by the Cabinet Secretary for Economy, Energy and Welsh Language: Tata Steel ( 2 Jul 2024)

Sioned Williams: You said in your statement that the tensions over the last days have highlighted the high stakes that are at play. What it highlighted for me was a shocking attitude to the legitimate and hard-won rights of workers. I suppose we shouldn't be surprised, given Tata's despicable threats over the last month, so rightly highlighted by my colleague Luke Fletcher. There always seems to be plenty of...

9. Plaid Cymru Debate: Wales and the next UK Government (26 Jun 2024)

Sioned Williams: I agreed with much of what Jenny said and the spirit in which you said it, and I know you’ve asked us not to personalise this debate, but for me, Jo Stevens’s arrogant dismissal of the case for the full devolution of justice and policing powers as ‘fiddling around’ I think is really significant, because I think it really put on display for all to see that fig leaf that Adam Price...

2. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Culture and Social Justice: Questions Without Notice from Party Spokespeople (26 Jun 2024)

Sioned Williams: Diolch, Cabinet Secretary. Good to hear you had input, but it's disappointing to hear that UK Labour didn't listen. Welsh Government Ministers have rightly criticised the devastating impact of 14 years of austerity on their budgets, and we remember, of course, that it was the social justice budget in the last round that had the largest cut in terms of its budget. So, what's your reaction,...

2. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Culture and Social Justice: Questions Without Notice from Party Spokespeople (26 Jun 2024)

Sioned Williams: Diolch, because, shockingly, tackling child poverty is not one of the six steps for change in Wales listed in the recently published Welsh Labour manifesto for this election. Launching a new border security command is there, seemingly deemed a bigger priority. I'm sure the people of places like Monmouthshire and Powys are alarmed and surprised in equal measure. In its response to the Labour...

2. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Culture and Social Justice: Questions Without Notice from Party Spokespeople (26 Jun 2024)

Sioned Williams: You've stated that tackling child poverty is one of your top priorities, and that of course is welcome, given that close to one in three children in Wales are living in poverty. And accordingly, of course, the depth of child poverty in Wales and its harmful effects on our future generations have been discussed in this Siambr many times by Members and Ministers and First Ministers. Your...

2. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Culture and Social Justice: Questions Without Notice from Party Spokespeople (26 Jun 2024)

Sioned Williams: Thank you, Llywydd, and good afternoon, Cabinet Secretary.

7. The Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act 2015 (Public Bodies) (Amendment) Regulations 2024 (25 Jun 2024)

Sioned Williams: The scope of the Act is being extended to include these further eight public bodies at a time when the office of the future generations commissioner has lost staff due to funding cuts and hasn't received any additional funding to support the additional public bodies, which it had estimated to cost £15,000 per public body. The commissioner has been forced to put in a new delivery model to do,...

5. Motion under Standing Order 26.91 seeking the Senedd's agreement to introduce a Member Bill — British Sign Language (BSL) (Wales) Bill (19 Jun 2024)

Sioned Williams: May I thank Mark Isherwood for introducing this Bill? I'm pleased to have the opportunity to discuss the important issues that he raises in the Senedd, because over the past few years, there's been increasing and long-awaited recognition of the important part that British Sign Language has to play in our society, alongside more specific efforts to promote the language and make it more visible...

2. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Climate Change and Rural Affairs: Local Environment (19 Jun 2024)

Sioned Williams: Diolch. The Welsh Government has backed building a multimillion-pound cable car and zipline attraction in Swansea, which would, according to local people, trash a beloved and well-used green space in the city. The plan, by Skyline Enterprises Ltd, on Kilvey Hill, and backed by the Welsh Government to the tune of £4 million, will also cause a loss of wildlife, according to members of the...

2. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Climate Change and Rural Affairs: Local Environment (19 Jun 2024)

Sioned Williams: 1. How does the Government ensure that any projects it funds do not impact negatively on the local environment? OQ61266

5. Statement by the Cabinet Secretary for Climate Change and Rural Affairs: Wales's World-class Recycling (18 Jun 2024)

Sioned Williams: I'd like to begin by congratulating the people of Wales for the remarkable achievement in being ranked as the second-best recycling nation in the world. It's no small feat, is it, and it's testament to the hard work of our communities and our local authorities and businesses who've embraced the importance of recycling. However, while we celebrate this achievement, it is imperative that we...

3. Statement by the Cabinet Secretary for Culture and Social Justice: Refugee Week: Our home (18 Jun 2024)

Sioned Williams: —without representation and appeal. So, Cabinet Secretary, will you and your Government finally introduce a guardianship service here in Wales, like in Scotland, because you cannot profess to take a children's rights approach if you do not?

3. Statement by the Cabinet Secretary for Culture and Social Justice: Refugee Week: Our home (18 Jun 2024)

Sioned Williams: Thank you for the statement. Plaid Cymru believes that the emphasis on the importance of housing and the home during Refugee Week is vitally important.

3. Statement by the Cabinet Secretary for Culture and Social Justice: Refugee Week: Our home (18 Jun 2024)

Sioned Williams: Last night, I had the pleasure of attending the Welsh Refugee Council's Nation of Sanctuary Awards. I'd like to say 'well done' to all the winners and nominees, but especially to congratulate the Birth Partner Project, which won the Nation of Sanctuary Award for the wonderful work supporting women seeking sanctuary who would otherwise face birth alone. I wish you'd been there, Cabinet...
