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.

2. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Climate Change and Rural Affairs: Opencast Coal Mine Restoration Plans (17 Apr 2024)

Sioned Williams: Diolch. You've no doubt heard the concerns in the press and heard my colleague Delyth Jewell also raise concerns about water collecting in the void left by the Ffos-y-Fran opencast site. So, this isn't really about coal tip safety. The Welsh Government responded, saying it was closely monitoring the situation and its priority is the safety of the local community. So, I would like to emphasise...

2. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Climate Change and Rural Affairs: Opencast Coal Mine Restoration Plans (17 Apr 2024)

Sioned Williams: 1. How does the Government ensure that opencast coal mine-restoration plans safeguard communities in South Wales West? OQ60908

6. Statement by the First Minister: Delivering Wales's priorities (16 Apr 2024)

Sioned Williams: Thank you for the list of priorities, First Minister.

6. Statement by the First Minister: Delivering Wales's priorities (16 Apr 2024)

Sioned Williams: How can we tell if something is a priority? Usually, there are clear objectives and targets designed to support that priority. This year alone, I've raised child poverty 20 times in Plenary, and I'll continue to do so, because, for Plaid Cymru, it is a priority. You say the fight to lift children out of poverty will be at the heart of your Government's mission, but you didn't state when you...

1. Questions to the First Minister: Timely Healthcare (16 Apr 2024)

Sioned Williams: Diolch. For five days this month, from 4 April until 9 April, the highest level of escalation was declared at Morriston Hospital—a so-called 'black alert'. Patients in accident and emergency were facing 15-hour waits. Swansea Bay University Health Board advised people, for five days, to avoid coming to the hospital's emergency department unless they were seriously ill or badly injured. This...

1. Questions to the First Minister: Timely Healthcare (16 Apr 2024)

Sioned Williams: 5. How does the Government ensure that residents of South Wales West receive timely healthcare? OQ60907

10. Short Debate: Saving lives and protecting our communities — The case for overdose prevention centres (20 Mar 2024)

Sioned Williams: Do you think that, therefore—? You've heard our arguments for the devolution of criminal justice for exactly this reason. Do you see, therefore, that the piecemeal approach, suggested by Gordon Brown and that seems to be adopted by Keir Starmer, won't address this issue, and don't you regret that?

7. Plaid Cymru Debate: Barnett formula (20 Mar 2024)

Sioned Williams: And let's be absolutely clear, these aren’t unavoidable by-products or side effects of a lack of sufficient resources. Rather, they are a damning indictment of the warped and unjust priorities of our political system, and the unfair, unbalanced union of which we are unfortunately a part. Once again, there are many ways of demonstrating this, but I was particularly struck by a recent...

7. Plaid Cymru Debate: Barnett formula (20 Mar 2024)

Sioned Williams: We have talked a lot about fairness today, and we've heard about how the deficiencies of the Barnett formula are a reflection of the lack of fairness that permeates our society and contributes to it. Of course, the consequences of this fundamental unfairness in the real world are at the heart of the social justice agenda, and they underline the extent to which Westminster's political...

5. Member Debate under Standing Order 11.21(iv): National collections (20 Mar 2024)

Sioned Williams: Do you think it would have been better if that panel would have reported before the budget was set?

5. Member Debate under Standing Order 11.21(iv): National collections (20 Mar 2024)

Sioned Williams: 'the question of the archive is not...a question of the past...It is a question of the future, the question of the future itself, the question of a response, of a promise and of a responsibility for tomorrow.'

5. Member Debate under Standing Order 11.21(iv): National collections (20 Mar 2024)

Sioned Williams: Swansea's National Waterfront Museum, in the region I represent, was the first museum of sanctuary in the UK, and I have seen first-hand how the museum embeds the experience of those who are seeking sanctuary into their activities and ensures those voices are heard. The museum really crystalises how our national museum engages with, welcomes and treasures sanctuary seekers as our new...
