1. Questions to the First Minister: Asylum Seekers and Refugees ( 7 May 2024)

Sioned Williams: I’d like to thank Jane Dodds for raising this important question. The reality is that Wales's aspiration to be a nation of sanctuary is being entirely undermined by the fact that we do not have the power to fully realise it. Wales is now part of the implementation of a scheme that breaks international law and undermines human rights. The Welsh Refugee Council says that the scheme will lead...

10. Short Debate: Gaza — A Welsh response ( 1 May 2024)

Sioned Williams: That speaks volumes, really.

10. Short Debate: Gaza — A Welsh response ( 1 May 2024)

Sioned Williams: You'll remember that, in the Scottish Parliament, there was a debate held calling for an immediate ceasefire. During that debate the former First Minister Humza Yousaf said that he had sent a letter from the Scottish Government to both Rishi Sunak and Keir Starmer asking them to call for an immediate ceasefire. Has the Welsh Government done the same?

10. Short Debate: Gaza — A Welsh response ( 1 May 2024)

Sioned Williams: More than 34,000 people have been killed in Gaza and, according to the UN, 72 per cent are thought to be women and children. As a woman, parliamentarian and as a representative of Welsh women in this place, I have a moral duty to use my voice to condemn the deaths and suffering of those innocent women and children. The Welsh Government can't talk about the importance of maternal health,...

6. Welsh Conservatives Debate: The Cass review ( 1 May 2024)

Sioned Williams: —feel confident and empowered to support pupils, especially in view of the toxic and reactionary and sometimes misleading response that has developed following the publication of this report. Will the Cabinet Secretary agree with me that it's through supporting our young people through our schools, and by ensuring access to high-quality services in a timely manner and in their own nation,...

6. Welsh Conservatives Debate: The Cass review ( 1 May 2024)

Sioned Williams: —of being the most LGBTQ+ friendly country in Europe?

6. Welsh Conservatives Debate: The Cass review ( 1 May 2024)

Sioned Williams: Thank you, Dirprwy Lywydd. The priority for Plaid Cymru when discussing this issue—and it should be a priority for us all—is that the well-being of our children and young people, their views and their experiences, are absolutely central to their care, and any changes to that care. We as a party stand firmly with trans people of all ages who have suffered greatly over recent years as a...

5. Debate on the Petitions Committee Report, 'A Warmer Winter: P-06-1326 The Senedd should scrutinise the prepayment meter scandal in Wales' ( 1 May 2024)

Sioned Williams: I am pleased to have the opportunity to contribute to this debate, because fuel poverty has been one of the main areas of inquiry of the Equality and Social Justice Committee, of which I am a member. And, as Plaid Cymru's spokesperson on social justice, the way in which high fuel prices and unfair practices, which, in the words of the report, are a scandal, have contributed to the levels and...

2. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Health and Social Care: Questions Without Notice from Party Spokespeople ( 1 May 2024)

Sioned Williams: Thank you very much. Yes, the point is that those day centres do play such an important role in that preventative work to prevent people from having to access health and care services in the first place, and ameliorate that pressure. A number of people have asked Age Cymru for support due to the fact that they have not been informed in advance that they would have to pay for social care. They...

2. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Health and Social Care: Questions Without Notice from Party Spokespeople ( 1 May 2024)

Sioned Williams: Thank you, Llywydd. Welcome to your new role, Minister. I'd like to raise with you the great concern that exists about the number of day centres closing across Wales. These centres have been more than just buildings for so many people who need support in the community. They have been at the heart of people's lives, offering a vital community contact point, offering activities, company, and a...

3. Statement by the Cabinet Secretary for Economy, Energy and Welsh Language: Tata Steel (30 Apr 2024)

Sioned Williams: The news we heard last week from Tata doesn't just impact the workforce in Port Talbot and their families, but also, of course, all of the communities that I represent, and the nightmare that has hung over them for all these months is now real. It's so disappointing, but these people need to know that action is being taken by the Welsh Government to explore every possible route you could take...

5. 90-second Statements (24 Apr 2024)

Sioned Williams: Diolch, Dirprwy Lywydd. April is Adenomyosis Awareness Month, and if ever there's a condition that needs more awareness, it's adenomyosis. It affects at least one in 10 girls, women and people assigned female at birth, making it as common as diabetes or asthma in women, and yet you won't find it mentioned on NHS Wales's 111 A to Z webpages. So, what is it? It's a condition where the lining of...

2. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Culture and Social Justice: Questions Without Notice from Party Spokespeople (24 Apr 2024)

Sioned Williams: Diolch yn fawr. Key to making progress on this, of course, is accurate data being gathered and published by Welsh Government on the number of people with a learning disability placed in settings like this, and, indeed, the number living in Wales, to enable improved service planning and provision. Within the learning disability delivery and implementation plan, there's reference to the...

2. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Culture and Social Justice: Questions Without Notice from Party Spokespeople (24 Apr 2024)

Sioned Williams: Thank you, Llywydd. Welcome to the social justice portfolio, Cabinet Secretary. Ensuring fairness is possibly the most important role within Government.

2. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Culture and Social Justice: Questions Without Notice from Party Spokespeople (24 Apr 2024)

Sioned Williams: Last week there was a large protest outside the Senedd, organised by Stolen Lives, a group of families and carers calling for the release of people with a learning disability and/or autistic people from secure hospital settings in Wales. As chair of the cross-party group on learning disability, I was glad to address the 'homes not hospitals' protest, and highlight the fact that the human...

1. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for North Wales and Transport: Transport for Children and Young People (24 Apr 2024)

Sioned Williams: I'm very glad to hear about that move, although we already know what young people think. The Welsh Youth Parliament very strongly told us what young people think about the need for free transport—accessible, easily affordable public transport. Last year, as you know, cuts in funding to bus operators resulted in the reduction or loss of many essential bus routes to schools and colleges...

2. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Climate Change and Rural Affairs (17 Apr 2024)

Sioned Williams: Diolch, Llywydd. And I don't have the question in front of me, sorry.

2. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Climate Change and Rural Affairs (17 Apr 2024)

Sioned Williams: I have the supplementary, but not the question. Sorry.
