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

Samuel Kurtz: I appreciate that, Deputy Llywydd. What I want to end on is the fact that there is a better way. The agricultural community and the sector sees a better way. They live a better way; they want to change and embrace. Everything that you mentioned, Jenny Rathbone, farmers wish that and more, but you have to work with them, not against them. Things must be done from the bottom up, not top down,...

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

Samuel Kurtz: I'll happily take an intervention from Alun.

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

Samuel Kurtz: I appreciate the intervention, and I appreciate the angle from which you're coming. But when the First Minister has said the statements that he said and widened the gulf between the Welsh Government and farmers, I think farmers are frustrated. I see myself first and foremost as a farmer's son and a politician second, so I am sharing the frustrations of my friends, my family and those that I...

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

Samuel Kurtz: Yes, of course. I share Mabon's disappointment, and what disappoints me also—

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

Samuel Kurtz: What disappoints me also is the fact that the Minister referred to our motion by saying we want to get rid of woodland creation. Well, I've reread the motion again. It says we want to get rid of the 10 per cent target on woodland creation. Farmers truly believe there is a place for trees on their farms, in the right place, for the right reason. They're not against it, just in the way that...

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

Samuel Kurtz: After 60 or so minutes of what I thought was a constructive debate, even highlighted by a Labour backbencher, I think the Minister's response there certainly missed the tone of this afternoon. A pre-prepared speech with a couple of annotations relating to some points made on these benches I don't think goes any way to satisfy the fears, the anger, the frustration and concerns of Wales's...

4. 90-second Statements (28 Feb 2024)

Samuel Kurtz: Diolch, Dirprwy Lywydd. Ahead of St David's Day on Friday, I had the pleasure of visiting the Second Pembroke Scouts group to award one of their Cubs, eight-year-old Levi Byrne, with a framed copy of her design of the St David's Day badge. The badge was the winning entry in a competition to design a fun St David's Day blanket badge, which Cubs and Scouts from across the UK can gain, and it...

Samuel Kurtz: —while still pursuing policies such as this. Thank you for your patience, Llywydd.

2. Questions to the Minister for Rural Affairs and North Wales, and Trefnydd: Questions Without Notice from Party Spokespeople (28 Feb 2024)

Samuel Kurtz: Thank you very much. I would say that that is cynical and hypocritical, that a Government is willing to inflict this pain on farmers—

2. Questions to the Minister for Rural Affairs and North Wales, and Trefnydd: Questions Without Notice from Party Spokespeople (28 Feb 2024)

Samuel Kurtz: Thank you. I asked that, because that money was first announced back in October 2022, so there's a theme running here, isn't there, that something is announced by this Government with regard to agriculture, yet it takes a big protest and the strength of feeling in the rural communities and farming for things to actually get done. So, these aren't new things. This is an announcement...

2. Questions to the Minister for Rural Affairs and North Wales, and Trefnydd: Questions Without Notice from Party Spokespeople (28 Feb 2024)

Samuel Kurtz: Thank you, Minister, I appreciate that. The TB advisory group that you mentioned was a statement back in July 2022, we're now in February 2024. Some would find it slightly cynical that, on the day before a protest, you send out these invitations for people to join—no interview. One of the e-mails, I've had sight of them, was sent to them saying that they've been accepted at nearly 8 p.m....

2. Questions to the Minister for Rural Affairs and North Wales, and Trefnydd: Questions Without Notice from Party Spokespeople (28 Feb 2024)

Samuel Kurtz: Diolch, Llywydd. Good afternoon, Minister. I'm sure it's going to be, for you, like me, quite a busy day today. Just taking note of the statement that you and the First Minister released yesterday, I've read through it and it breaks it down following the meeting that you had with organisers of the protest or the meeting in Carmarthen mart, and I thank you for taking the time to meet with...

1. Questions to the First Minister: The Rural Economy in Carmarthen West and South Pembrokeshire (27 Feb 2024)

Samuel Kurtz: Diolch, Prif Weinidog. Can I thank you and the rural affairs Minister for taking the time to meet with the organisers of the Carmarthen mart meeting yesterday? It was a pleasure to be able to join Andrew R.T. Davies in meeting with them too, following the meeting with yourselves. Now, farming underpins the rural economy, yet I have sensed the growing frustration and anger in rural Wales for...

1. Questions to the First Minister: The Rural Economy in Carmarthen West and South Pembrokeshire (27 Feb 2024)

Samuel Kurtz: 3. How is the Welsh Government supporting the rural economy in Carmarthen West and South Pembrokeshire? OQ60730

2. Questions to the Minister for Education and the Welsh Language: Welsh-medium Childcare (21 Feb 2024)

Samuel Kurtz: The town of Pembroke in my constituency is not often considered to be a Welsh-speaking town, but there's a new Welsh-medium primary school being built in the area, and it will certainly help to provide Welsh-medium education, which is to be welcomed. However, may I ask what support the Welsh Government is providing to ensure that preschool children, who will ultimately attend Welsh-medium...

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

Samuel Kurtz: Deputy Minister, I appreciate your thoroughly comprehensive response to my Welsh Conservative colleague Joel James, but there was one point that wasn't touched upon in your response, and it was that of the farming unions. Given the current situation in rural Wales with the consultation on the sustainable farming scheme, can I ask that you implore the two First Minister candidates to meet with...

7. Statement by the Minister for Education and the Welsh Language: The Welsh Language Technology Action Plan (20 Feb 2024)

Samuel Kurtz: Thank you, Minister, for bringing forward this statement this afternoon and informing us about the current situation. As an enthusiastic supporter of the Welsh language and as one who is always very excited about new technologies, I recognise how important it is to ensure that technology plays a role in Wales’s journey to realise the ambitions of 'Cymraeg 2050'. Moving on to this report,...
