8. Statement by the Deputy Minister for Social Partnership: HeartUnions Week (20 Feb 2024)

Sioned Williams: I grew up in a household where union membership was seen as a natural part of being employed. My parents were both members of teaching unions, and their fathers, both miners, were part of the trade union movement that fought for fairness, safety and dignity in the Rhymney valley coalfield. My great grandfather was blacklisted for his part in the 1926 strike and had to then sell insurance door...

6. Statement by the Minister for Social Justice and Chief Whip: The Welsh Benefits System and Charter (20 Feb 2024)

Sioned Williams: Thank you for the statement, Minister. Since 2021, as Plaid Cymru spokesperson on social justice, I have supported calls to create a Welsh benefits system many times in the Chamber, and in 2022 the Senedd supported my motion calling for a duty to be imposed on all public sector organisations to ensure that more money does reach the pockets of the people of Wales by increasing the use of Welsh...

3. Statement by the Minister for Social Justice and Chief Whip: Anniversary of the full-scale invasion of Ukraine and Nation of Sanctuary update (20 Feb 2024)

Sioned Williams: It's a terrible anniversary that we are marking today: two years since Ukraine's lands were illegally invaded, its cities bombed and people driven from their homes in terror. We have rightly condemned the illegal and barbaric actions of Putin and have played our part in helping support refugees from this conflict find sanctuary and refuge in Wales. Wales has been praised for its humanitarian...

7. Plaid Cymru Debate: The health service ( 7 Feb 2024)

Sioned Williams: We all heard the harrowing story that was reported in the news yesterday, about the experience of one of my constituents, Theresa Jones, a 91-year-old woman from Port Talbot, who was lying in pain, and in mental anguish, on the floor of her care home for almost 24 hours while waiting for an ambulance to arrive. It was heartbreaking for her family and the staff who were trying to look after...

2. Questions to the Minister for Health and Social Services: Misuse of Drugs ( 7 Feb 2024)

Sioned Williams: Thank you. A constituent has contacted me saying that, since he was prescribed Buvidal, it has allowed him to stop using heroin, which has made a huge difference to his life. My constituent received the drug because he was in a special programme for offenders. Apparently, the waiting list for this treatment is long, and my constituent is aware of people who commit offences deliberately so...

Sioned Williams: —financial support for candidates with caring responsibilities, why are there no provisions included in the Bill? How is the Welsh Government trying to support candidates with caring responsibilities, such as parents and unpaid carers—a great many of whom are women—in the Welsh elections?

8. & 9. The general principles of the Elections and Elected Bodies (Wales) Bill and the financial resolution in respect of the Elections and Elected Bodies (Wales) Bill ( 6 Feb 2024)

Sioned Williams: As the Plaid Cymru spokesperson on equality, I would like to ask some specific questions today on how this Bill addresses the diversity of candidates, how it considers their needs and how it supports them. Adam Price has already mentioned the importance of this, and Carolyn Thomas has also touched on some of the elements of this. And I'd like to thank Women's Equality Network Wales for...

7. Debate: The Steel Industry in Wales ( 6 Feb 2024)

Sioned Williams: Last Friday I was privileged to be at the screening of Michael Sheen's new television drama The Way at Reel Cinema, Aberavon. The atmosphere was one of anticipation and pride, as you can imagine, with one of Port Talbot's most famous sons bringing to his home patch a long-awaited creative project, inspired by the power and resonance of Welsh social and political history and struggle. But...

Sioned Williams: Nearer to the absolute truth than the historian / Is the dramatist, who is all lies.

7. Debate: The Steel Industry in Wales ( 6 Feb 2024)

Sioned Williams: The whole evening encapsulated the truth of the trauma that is befalling so many communities that I represent that depend on Port Talbot steelworks. The crushing feeling of powerlessness that Welsh communities have felt so often in the face of forces both economic and political, which remain in spite of devolution. The diminishing of the voice of the unions and of protest. The disbelief in...

6. Debate: The Draft Budget 2024-25 ( 6 Feb 2024)

Sioned Williams: The social justice budget is facing the largest cut, in proportional terms, of all of the Welsh Government's spending areas, which will inevitably compromise this Government's ability to address the deep-rooted inequalities in our society and their effects on our citizens. Of course, we must remember that 14 years of Tory austerity, which, it seems, will continue, if Labour's shadow...

Sioned Williams: Thank you for the update, Deputy Minister, and for taking action in such a robust way in the wake of the entirely unacceptable situation that has been allowed to develop within the South Wales Fire and Rescue Service in terms of the culture and, as we've heard, in terms of the service as well. There are certainly major questions to be asked and resolved in terms of accountability, scrutiny...
