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

Samuel Kurtz: Cabinet Secretary, I've listened closely to your answers to Luke Fletcher and to David Rees, and I'm seeing the reality here of the difference of having to govern—the UK Labour Government having to govern—and not now be in opposition. And I think, in coming back to Luke’s initial question, and in talking to Dai Rees’s questions about transition, has this Welsh Government now admitted...

5. Debate on the Culture, Communications, Welsh Language, Sport, and International Relations Committee Report, 'Six Nations Rugby Championship broadcasting rights' (10 Jul 2024)

Samuel Kurtz: Will the Minister take an intervention? So, just to confirm, you will be writing requesting that the Welsh six nations games do stay on free-to-air to the new respective Minister within the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport.

5. Debate on the Culture, Communications, Welsh Language, Sport, and International Relations Committee Report, 'Six Nations Rugby Championship broadcasting rights' (10 Jul 2024)

Samuel Kurtz: Thank you very much, Hefin, for taking that, and I appreciate your recommendation 3. I think it's a really valuable one, and it's a request to the UK Government. Did you in your deliberations within the committee, and forgive me for not knowing, look at other measures that are in Welsh Government's control around mitigating the potential cost that could be there? I'm thinking of business rates.

5. Debate on the Culture, Communications, Welsh Language, Sport, and International Relations Committee Report, 'Six Nations Rugby Championship broadcasting rights' (10 Jul 2024)

Samuel Kurtz: Thank you to you as committee Chair, Delyth, for bringing this issue to the Senedd today.

5. Debate on the Culture, Communications, Welsh Language, Sport, and International Relations Committee Report, 'Six Nations Rugby Championship broadcasting rights' (10 Jul 2024)

Samuel Kurtz: And special thanks, actually, to the Culture, Communications, Welsh Language, Sport and International Relations Committee—the longest committee title, I think, in the history of 25 years of devolution—for what is actually, looking at it, a simple prospect, a simple inquiry: should Welsh rugby six nations games go behind a paywall? But in that simple question there is a complexity of...

2. Business Statement and Announcement ( 9 Jul 2024)

Samuel Kurtz: Trefnydd, can I please call for a statement from the Cabinet Secretary for Health and Social Care on the provision of adult day-care centres in Wales? The Pembrokeshire County Council-owned Anchorange day-care centre in Pembroke Dock has been a safe haven for vulnerable adults with learning difficulties and additional needs for many decades. Many important relationship between attendees have...

Samuel Kurtz: Thank you, Cabinet Secretary, for your statement.

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

Samuel Kurtz: We certainly welcome the de-escalation and the goodwill shown by both Tata Steel and the steelworkers' unions over the last few days, and we are thankful that Tata have decided not to close the second blast furnace early, following the news that Unite have called off their strike action. An early closure would clearly have been bad news for Welsh steel production, for the workers and for the...

1. Questions to the First Minister: The Economy of Mid and West Wales ( 2 Jul 2024)

Samuel Kurtz: First Minister, I recently had the pleasure of joining Stephen Crabb in meeting the Tenby chamber of trade, the newly re-established chamber of trade, in the fantastic Qube restaurant in the town. While they shared with us some of their concerns, one of the key takeaways was the Welsh Government's decision to cut business rate relief and the impact that that is having on our economies in our...

7. Debate on a Member's Legislative Proposal: A Community Energy Benefits bill (26 Jun 2024)

Samuel Kurtz: Thank you, Adam, for bringing this debate forward today.

7. Debate on a Member's Legislative Proposal: A Community Energy Benefits bill (26 Jun 2024)

Samuel Kurtz: This really excites me, because renewable opportunities, especially in my part of the world, our part of the world in west Wales, in my constituency of Carmarthen West and South Pembrokeshire, excite not just myself but the community as a whole, because they see the opportunities that come not just in terms of the employment that these renewable projects bring to these communities, but also...

1. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for North Wales and Transport: Collisions at 20 mph (26 Jun 2024)

Samuel Kurtz: Golden Grove School in Pembroke in my constituency, Cabinet Secretary, has St Daniel's Hill to its side entrance, which was 40 mph when the 20 mph policy was introduced, so it didn't receive a reduction in speed limit outside a side entrance that children use, and which doesn't have a pelican crossing or a zebra crossing. I've previously written to you on this matter and raised it with the...

7. Welsh Conservatives Debate: Economic policy (12 Jun 2024)

Samuel Kurtz: But life hasn't always been easy for our innovators. The COVID-19 pandemic made life difficult for all of us and our businesses were hit hard by the restrictions that were put in place. Thankfully, the actions taken by the then Chancellor of the Exchequer, Rishi Sunak, on behalf of the country saved and supported over 11 million jobs—that's 11 million jobs. It is a fact that the UK...

7. Welsh Conservatives Debate: Economic policy (12 Jun 2024)

Samuel Kurtz: Diolch, Dirprwy Lywydd. I welcome the opportunity to open this debate and move the motion in the name of Darren Millar. It's a pleasure to talk about the Welsh economy this afternoon. Wales is a nation of enterprise, and home to so much innovation in so many sectors. From agriculture to healthcare innovation, there are entrepreneurs and businesses everywhere putting Wales on the map. From...

2. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Education: Improving Educational Attainment (12 Jun 2024)

Samuel Kurtz: Educational attainment is of the utmost importance and, Cabinet Secretary, I'm sure you'll join me in paying tribute to Manorbier Church in Wales VC School who, following a fire in October 2022, had to decant to Jameston Community Hall, and under the fantastic leadership of headteacher Sharon Davies delivered a fantastic Estyn report that said:  'The school's highly committed staff work...

1. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Housing, Local Government and Planning: Support for Town Centres (12 Jun 2024)

Samuel Kurtz: Thank you, Cabinet Secretary, for you answer to my colleague. Now, Pembroke in my constituency is one of the finest examples of a medieval town—a fantastic castle, which is the birth place of Henry Tudor. And it's got the South Quay development happening there, which has had Welsh Government funding. And while the community are really excited to see once derelict buildings coming back to...

1. Questions to the First Minister: The Legislative Programme (11 Jun 2024)

Samuel Kurtz: Since being elected, First Minister, you've u-turned on reform to the school year, delayed the sustainable farming scheme, and attempted to change the rhetoric around the default 20 mph policy, without actually changing anything. So, this is a Labour Government so bereft of new ideas that it is now changing policies that it itself introduced that we've been campaigning against. So, thank you....

2. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Health and Social Care: Carmarthen West and South Pembrokeshire ( 5 Jun 2024)

Samuel Kurtz: Thank you, Cabinet Secretary. In January 2022, Hywel Dda University Health Board announced a timetable for the building of the new west Wales hospital. This suggested a timescale of seven years from the identification of the final site to the opening of the hospital, with the aim of opening in late 2029. Following a written question to you and questions asked of the health board by The...
