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

Samuel Kurtz: The Welsh economy is underperforming, and the people of Wales are losing out because of this. There was even recognition of this in your manifesto, which said: 'There is no route to the more compassionate country that we want to be which doesn't pass through the more prosperous country that we need to be.'

1. Questions to the First Minister: The Ongoing Crisis in the Middle East (23 Apr 2024)

Samuel Kurtz: Prif Weinidog, this role affords us many opportunities, and the opportunity to hear the Brisleys share their story of the devastating murder of their daughter and two granddaughters in the 7 October attacks carried out by Hamas terrorists is one of the most powerful and poignant events that I've experienced in my time as a Member of this place. It was a privilege to co-sponsor the event with...

10. Short Debate: The impact of renewable energy infrastructure on rural communities (17 Apr 2024)

Samuel Kurtz: I'm grateful to the Member for Brecon and Radnorshire for giving me a minute of his time. And to develop the point around infrastructure that he and Russell George and Cefin Campbell have made, in Hundleton, we have the opportunity with the Celtic sea for floating offshore wind. And the onshoring of the cabling and infrastructure is causing concerns to the community, who rightfully welcome...

6. Debate on the Economy, Trade and Rural Affairs Committee Report, 'Nuclear energy and the Welsh economy' (17 Apr 2024)

Samuel Kurtz: My thanks to our committee Chair for his leadership throughout this inquiry and the clerking team for their work in drawing this report together. I'm an advocate for nuclear energy, and while I don't think that is controversial, I think it's worth looking at the 'why'. When uncertain times lie ahead with continued war in Ukraine and ever-rising tensions in the middle east, having energy...

2. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Climate Change and Rural Affairs: Questions Without Notice from Party Spokespeople (17 Apr 2024)

Samuel Kurtz: I'm grateful for that, Cabinet Secretary. Yes, the advisory group does have that experience in terms of practical delivery, but I don't think it should be understated how important it is to understand the farmer's voice in the delivery of TB eradication on farms. Yes, it's a technical advisory group, but it is those farmers themselves who deliver much of this on their farms. So, I think...

2. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Climate Change and Rural Affairs: Questions Without Notice from Party Spokespeople (17 Apr 2024)

Samuel Kurtz: Thank you, Cabinet Secretary. I'm pleased to hear you mention the need and the recognition of having to rebuild that relationship, and, again, the stressing of sustainability having a wider definition than that just of climate and nature.  Now, moving on to bovine TB, the long-awaited membership of the technical advisory group was announced earlier this week, having first been announced back...

2. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Climate Change and Rural Affairs: Questions Without Notice from Party Spokespeople (17 Apr 2024)

Samuel Kurtz: Diolch, Llywydd, and I warmly welcome the new Cabinet Secretary to his position and wish him well. And I'm grateful, too, for the time that he gave me yesterday to discuss a range of issues. I'm pleased to see as well that the Cabinet Secretary has already been out on farms, some of which were in my own constituency, sadly without me being notified as is standard protocol, alas. But only a...

1. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Finance, Constitution and Cabinet Office: Public Toilet Facilities (17 Apr 2024)

Samuel Kurtz: Cabinet Secretary, the village of Carew in the heart of south Pembrokeshire attracts over 70,000 visitors a year, many, if not all of whom enjoy one of the finest Norman castles in the UK, Carew castle. However, the village's public toilets have just been saved from closure following a campaign by local residents and the hard-working county councillor, Councillor Vanessa Thomas, and Carew...

1. Questions to the First Minister: Supporting Live Music and Entertainment Venues (19 Mar 2024)

Samuel Kurtz: Diolch, Brif Weinidog. Live music and entertainment venues are important cultural establishments in our towns and cities, with none more important than west Wales's finest Queens Hall in Narberth. Now, while it's no secret that you'll soon have a little more free time on your hands, Prif Weinidog, what colleagues in this Siambr may not be aware of is that you've actually been in the audience...

Samuel Kurtz: 4. How is the Welsh Government supporting live music and entertainment venues? OQ60892

2. Questions to the Minister for Education and the Welsh Language: Questions Without Notice from Party Spokespeople (13 Mar 2024)

Samuel Kurtz: So, finally, Minister, as it is likely that this will be our final set of questions on education and the Welsh language, I wanted to thank you for your responses—naturally, I haven't always agreed with you—and for the way that we can work together on issues related to the Welsh language. However, I do want to refer back to a question that I've asked a number of times in the past, which...

2. Questions to the Minister for Education and the Welsh Language: Questions Without Notice from Party Spokespeople (13 Mar 2024)

Samuel Kurtz: [Inaudible.]—confirmation there that the Royal Welsh will be able to continue during the school term and it won't have to be moved into another part of the school holidays, affecting potentially the National Eisteddfod, the Urdd Eisteddfod, and other cultural events in Wales. I'm sure a lot of people will be slightly disappointed with that response, education Minister. But in recent weeks,...

2. Questions to the Minister for Education and the Welsh Language: Questions Without Notice from Party Spokespeople (13 Mar 2024)

Samuel Kurtz: Diolch, Llywydd. Weinidog, the consultation into changing school term times ended a month ago, with the suggestions in it gaining widespread disapproval from teaching unions, families, and young people too. This co-operation agreement idea between Labour and Plaid Cymru jeopardises one of the pinnacle events in Wales's cultural calendar, potentially costing the Royal Welsh Show over £1...

Samuel Kurtz: What action is the Welsh Government taking to encourage economic growth in Carmarthen West and South Pembrokeshire?

Samuel Kurtz: What plans does the Welsh Government have to stimulate Wales's rural economy?

7. Plaid Cymru Debate: Bovine TB (28 Feb 2024)

Samuel Kurtz: I think I just heard you say 'last year' when you mentioned the technical advisory group. I think the statement came out in 2022—am I correct? 

7. Plaid Cymru Debate: Bovine TB (28 Feb 2024)

Samuel Kurtz: Can I thank Plaid Cymru for tabling this motion and confirm that the Welsh Conservatives will be supporting the Plaid Cymru motion unamended here today? TB is one of those diseases that we've heard about in this Chamber, we've talked about diligently and in depth, but until you're a farmer who's gone through their own TB story, it's incredibly hard to try and portray what that actually means....

6. Welsh Conservatives Debate: Sustainable Farming Scheme (28 Feb 2024)

Samuel Kurtz: I see myself as a leader, of course. I see myself as—
