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...

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

Sioned Williams: I would like to conclude by talking about the importance of maintaining free access to our national museums. I attended a meeting last week with the main organisations and charities in Wales that fight for the interests of children and young people. They strongly emphasised their concerns about the impact of charging for entry to our museums on children and their families. A visit to a museum...

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

Sioned Williams: A nation without a memory is a nation without a story, and a nation without a story is a nation without a future. That is the basic philosophical truth that underpins today's motion. Our national collections and archives tell that story, and they display and shape our identity and our understanding of our identity. In his famous book, Archive Fever, the philosopher Jacques Derrida said that...

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

Sioned Williams: 'The archive folds the past into a differed time of much future work—it suggests a future for the past.'

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

Sioned Williams: Our archive is the future of our past. The crisis facing our national collections, under the care of Amgueddfa Cymru and the National Library of Wales, is therefore an existential crisis not only for the institutions themselves, but also for the future of our culture and for the essence of our nation. I recently led a debate in this Chamber outlining the remarkable story of the Welsh women's...

3. Questions to the Minister for Health and Social Services: The Health Needs of Disabled Poeple (20 Mar 2024)

Sioned Williams: Diolch, Weinidog. We heard extremely powerful testimony during the UK COVID inquiry sessions in Cardiff from disabled people's organisations regarding the mass death and real suffering experienced by disabled people in Wales during the pandemic. They told the inquiry that, despite the Welsh Government's awareness of the risks, it failed to properly plan for the crisis, resulting in, and I...

1. Topical Questions: The Death of Kaylea Titford (20 Mar 2024)

Sioned Williams: Kaylea was disabled. She had spina bifida and used a wheelchair—those health problems that you mentioned. The report of the child practice review into her tragic death said that there was no assessment of the likelihood that she could suffer significant harm during the pandemic, and I quote: 'the evidence of the way she died permits us to conclude the contributory impact of extended...

Sioned Williams: Rhun ap Iorwerth.

3. Questions to the Minister for Health and Social Services: The Health Needs of Disabled Poeple (20 Mar 2024)

3. Debate: Final report of the Independent Commission on the Constitutional Future of Wales (19 Mar 2024)

Sioned Williams: Because I'm sorry, Andrew R.T. Davies, but the constitution is not just for the anoraks, actually, it's for all of us. And there can be nothing more important for Government, for this Senedd, than listening to those we represent, to the voices of our citizens who took part in this true national conversation about how they see the future of our nation. And 'urgency', as Rhun pointed out, is...

3. Debate: Final report of the Independent Commission on the Constitutional Future of Wales (19 Mar 2024)

Sioned Williams: I'd like to begin my contribution to this debate by expressing my thanks to the commission, and also by noting how important its work has been in terms of examining how the structures of our governance, our democracy and our society do offer the best possible future for our citizens. For me, the real importance of this work stems from the fact that it is rooted in over 15,000 engagements with...

2. Business Statement and Announcement (19 Mar 2024)

Sioned Williams: I'd like to ask for a statement, please, by the economy Minister to provide an update on the situation at Tata Steel Port Talbot. Tens of thousands of people in the region I represent are facing such anxiety. As the workers employed at Tata Steel, their families and those in the town and its neighbouring communities look ahead, the picture is one of terrible uncertainty. The news we heard...

7. Welsh Conservatives Debate: UK Government budget (13 Mar 2024)

Sioned Williams: Will you take an intervention? 

7. Welsh Conservatives Debate: UK Government budget (13 Mar 2024)

Sioned Williams: Do you think that the residents of South Wales West are equally delighted that the UK ranks thirty-ninth out of thirty-nine in the UNICEF rating of child poverty? 

7. Welsh Conservatives Debate: UK Government budget (13 Mar 2024)

Sioned Williams: With the highest levels of standards of living. 

7. Welsh Conservatives Debate: UK Government budget (13 Mar 2024)

Sioned Williams: I think I've just said, we need fair taxation, we need investment in public services. A lot of the policies in our co-operation agreement are aimed exactly at those people who are at the bottom of the heap, and not having any—any—focus at all by the Tory Westminster Government.  We must be prepared to have an honest conversation about our approach to the relationship between taxation and...

7. Welsh Conservatives Debate: UK Government budget (13 Mar 2024)

Sioned Williams: Budgets are political acts. They are economic choices based on ideological values, and the Chancellor's budget reflected in classic form the gulf between the priorities of the Tories in Westminster and the lives of ordinary people in Wales. The so-called 'tax burden' has become a recurring theme in the rhetoric of both major Westminster parties over recent years, when discussing the budget....

4. Topical Questions: Fire and Rescue Services (13 Mar 2024)

Sioned Williams: Diolch, Dirprwy Weinidog. I welcome the announcement from the Government to hold a review into the culture of all fire and rescue services in Wales, as we have been calling for, ever since the findings of the damning report into the South Wales Fire and Rescue Service was published. But this cannot distract from the fact that the Government has failed to get to grips with this matter earlier...

4. Topical Questions: Fire and Rescue Services (13 Mar 2024)

Sioned Williams: 1. Will the Minister make a statement on the decision for Mid and West Wales and North Wales fire and rescue services to carry out independent reviews into their culture and values? TQ1017

14. Debate on a Member's Legislative Proposal — A Bill for increased safety on public transport (12 Mar 2024)

Sioned Williams: A number of groups of people could benefit from this proposal, as we heard from Delyth Jewell, but, as a woman, I can certainly attest to the need for this kind of Bill. International research shows that access for women and girls to safe public transport options is limited, due to the risk of being harassed and subjected to gender-based violence. The evidence shows that this happens in small...
