4. Statement by the Cabinet Secretary for Climate Change and Rural Affairs: The future of farming in Wales (14 May 2024)

Samuel Kurtz: Thank you very much, Cabinet Secretary, for your statement. Can I first start by thanking NFU Cymru, Farmers Union of Wales, the Tenant Farmers Association, common land associations, the Nature Friendly Farming Network, CLA Cymru, the organisers of the Welshpool mart protest and the mart protest in Carmarthen, and the organisers of the protest that took place on the steps of the Senedd? For...

3. Statement by the First Minister: Senedd at 25 ( 7 May 2024)

Samuel Kurtz: Diolch, Llywydd. I appreciate you giving me a minute in this statement this afternoon. While I'm not as young as Luke Fletcher, I was seven in 1999, so I remember vaguely the grainy images on BBC News and S4C of the first Assembly—not quite in black and white. [Laughter.] Not quite in black and white, but I do remember those images, and it was something that I grew up with and it was a...

1. Questions to the First Minister: Green Energy ( 7 May 2024)

Samuel Kurtz: I don't share the pessimism of your Labour backbencher, First Minister, and we saw this last week when I visited the RWE consultation on their new green hydrogen project, which they're looking to construct on their land in Pembroke. Now, as the name suggests, they're looking to produce hydrogen using renewable energy from the grid, a great opportunity to not only decarbonise a neighbouring...

7. Welsh Conservatives Debate: Leadership campaign donations and the ministerial code ( 1 May 2024)

Samuel Kurtz: Well, it'll be of little surprise to the Chamber that of course I agree with you, Darren Millar, on those points there—that as new information comes forward, that information should be taken seriously and, therefore, an investigation must be conducted.  Tom Giffard listed those Labour Members who've shown their discontent with what has happened here, and Jane Dodds mentioned the dark...

7. Welsh Conservatives Debate: Leadership campaign donations and the ministerial code ( 1 May 2024)

Samuel Kurtz: You're a very willing person, then. But in terms of the point that you raised there, and Andrew R.T. Davies made it in an intervention to the Trefnydd, not all of the information was available to the previous First Minister when that initial investigation was taking place. The story is moving forward because more information is coming to light. If he wants the story to stop moving forward, if...

7. Welsh Conservatives Debate: Leadership campaign donations and the ministerial code ( 1 May 2024)

Samuel Kurtz: I'll take an intervention.

7. Welsh Conservatives Debate: Leadership campaign donations and the ministerial code ( 1 May 2024)

Samuel Kurtz: The fact of the matter is that the First Minister hasn't turned up for a debate on the responsibility that is his, and the disgruntlement and silence from the Labour benches I think speaks volumes as to the feelings within the Labour Party at the moment. Andrew R.T. Davies, in opening this debate, mentioned 'recognises', 'notes' and 'calls'—the three points to our motion, which I think he...

1. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Economy, Energy and Welsh Language: Questions Without Notice from Party Spokespeople ( 1 May 2024)

Samuel Kurtz: Last week, in your statement, you announced what you plan to do to turn the Welsh economy around with the levers that you have here in Wales. But, at the same time, this Welsh Government is actively stifling the Welsh economy: failure to implement the same level of business rates here in Wales is hurting our high streets and small and medium-sized enterprises; the 182-night policy for...

1. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Economy, Energy and Welsh Language: Questions Without Notice from Party Spokespeople ( 1 May 2024)

Samuel Kurtz: Thank you for that, Cabinet Secretary. It is important that energy and the economy are talked about together, because of the importance one has for the other. A strong economy pays for our public services. A strong economy is one that has plenty of good-quality, high-paying jobs. The energy sector, as the Cabinet Secretary has mentioned, both in the traditional sense and with renewables, is a...

1. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Economy, Energy and Welsh Language: Questions Without Notice from Party Spokespeople ( 1 May 2024)

Samuel Kurtz: Diolch, Llywydd. Cabinet Secretary, last week you addressed an event that I sponsored here in the Senedd for RenewableUK Cymru, and my thanks to you for that. The event helped highlight the amazing renewable energy opportunities that Wales has, bringing together businesses, organisations and stakeholders who share in that common goal. What the event also highlighted was the potential barriers...

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

Samuel Kurtz: Thank you, Cabinet Secretary, for the statement and for giving me prior sight of it. Thank you.

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

Samuel Kurtz: I and my colleagues on these benches share the Cabinet Secretary's disappointment at what has unfolded with Tata in Port Talbot. The impact that this will have on individuals, families and wider communities cannot be underestimated. We think of those who are impacted and living with the uncertainty at this time. Our position has been clear, that we wish to see Tata continue to operate a blast...

1. Questions to the First Minister: Plans for the Economy in Rural Wales (30 Apr 2024)

Samuel Kurtz: Prif Weinidog, as the chairman of the cross-party group on rural growth, we launched a report in March, entitled 'Generating Growth in the Rural Economy'. With support from CLA Cymru, the report was compiled following four evidence sessions focusing on key components of Wales's rural economy: tourism; housing and planning; economy, infrastructure and connectivity; and, finally, food...

1. Questions to the First Minister: Plans for the Economy in Rural Wales (30 Apr 2024)

Samuel Kurtz: 6. Will the First Minister outline the Welsh Government's plans for the economy in rural Wales? OQ61032

8. Welsh Conservatives Debate: Education (24 Apr 2024)

Samuel Kurtz: Diolch, Dirprwy Lywydd. First, may I start by thanking all contributors to the debate this afternoon and reiterate the words previously mentioned that our thoughts as a group are with those at Ysgol Dyffryn Aman after today's incident? Tom Giffard, in opening the debate, mentioned the PISA scores and IFS report, stating that young people in Wales are just as capable as other young people...

2. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Culture and Social Justice: Amgueddfa Cymru Sites (24 Apr 2024)

Samuel Kurtz: Amgueddfa Cymru and its sites are incredibly important in telling the story of Wales's history and culture, as do other museums right across Wales. Now, in my constituency, the Pembroke Dock Heritage Centre is one such example. In the heart of Wales's only royal dockyard, the heritage centre tells the story of this shipbuilding town, including the Sunderland flying boats, the town's proud...

6. Statement by the Cabinet Secretary for North Wales and Transport: Priorities for Transport: Listening, partnership, making change (23 Apr 2024)

Samuel Kurtz: Can I take the opportunity to welcome the Cabinet Secretary to his role and begin by thanking his predecessor for the work that he did in securing traffic lights at the Nash Fingerpost junction on the A477, not yet completed, but I know that the community are most grateful for the work on that? However, I do repeat my calls for a full review of safety along the A477 from St Clears to Pembroke...

5. Statement by the Cabinet Secretary for Economy, Energy and Welsh Language: Our economic future (23 Apr 2024)

Samuel Kurtz: And I would agree; we need change—change in the way we approach the economy in Wales, and change in the way that we skill our workforce. If we only look at some of the recent statistics published by the Welsh Government, then we see why we need change. This Government's own figures show a rise in unemployment equating to an increase of close to 3,000 jobless in the three months leading up...

5. Statement by the Cabinet Secretary for Economy, Energy and Welsh Language: Our economic future (23 Apr 2024)

Samuel Kurtz: I welcome the new Cabinet Secretary to his role, although I do imagine that it would have been a different role that he would have chosen if he'd had that opportunity. I'm sure that you will be delighted that I am going to continue to be scrutinising you in your new portfolio.
