2. Business Statement and Announcement (23 Jan 2024)

Samuel Kurtz: Minister, over a week ago, some significantly important broadband infrastructure by Ogi was criminally damaged in an attack in Pembroke Dock, leaving homes and businesses without a broadband connection for a number of days. Now, given that this is a UK legislation issue in terms of the security of this, I'm just wondering if the relevant Minister could make some representations to the UK...

7. Plaid Cymru Debate: Apprenticeships (17 Jan 2024)

Samuel Kurtz: I'm prepared to make an intervention if the Member for Alyn and Deeside allows me; it's very kind of him to do so. One of the key issues that has eaten away at budgets across the western hemisphere is inflation, not the premiership of Liz Truss, but inflation caused by the invasion of the Ukraine and the debts that we have to pay following COVID support.

QNR: Questions to the Deputy Minister for Climate Change (17 Jan 2024)

Samuel Kurtz: What action is the Welsh Government taking to support residents affected by flooding in Carmarthen West and South Pembrokeshire?

1. Questions to the Minister for Economy: Green Jobs (10 Jan 2024)

Samuel Kurtz: Minister, you'll be aware of the green energy opportunities that lie in west Wales, not least because I've continuously raised them, but also you seem to be spending an awful lot of time in west Wales of late. But these aren't just opportunities; there is an absolute necessity to get this right, from futureproofing skills to supporting decarbonisation so that industries in Carmarthen West...

QNR: Questions to the Economy Minister (10 Jan 2024)

Samuel Kurtz: What action is the Welsh Government taking to address employment skills shortages in Carmarthen West and South Pembrokeshire?

6. Debate on a Statement: The Draft Budget 2024-25 ( 9 Jan 2024)

Samuel Kurtz: I'm pleased to participate in this debate today—one that is exceedingly important on many levels, particularly given the timing of the release of this draft budget, which thus far has allowed for only limited scrutiny. As I said during a debate just before Christmas, farming is the silver thread running through the fabric of Wales's national identity. Welsh agriculture is not only a vital...

2. Business Statement and Announcement ( 9 Jan 2024)

Samuel Kurtz: Trefnydd, can I please ask for a statement from the Minister for Climate Change following the impact of flooding in my constituency of Carmarthen West and South Pembrokeshire? Like many parts of the country, the persistent and heavy rain that seemed to fall for much of the latter half of December on already saturated land caused severe flooding in parts of my constituency, with the arrival of...

8. Welsh Conservatives' Debate: Agriculture (13 Dec 2023)

Samuel Kurtz: Will the Member give way?

8. Welsh Conservatives' Debate: Agriculture (13 Dec 2023)

Samuel Kurtz: I appreciate the points that the Member is raising there. But do you not recognise that, given that the sustainable farming scheme—exactly the points that you are relating to—starts in 2025 and there's no transition from BPS to the sustainable farming scheme, the need to support farmers fully financially next year, for the final year of BPS, to ensure that they're ready for that change to...

8. Welsh Conservatives' Debate: Agriculture (13 Dec 2023)

Samuel Kurtz: Diolch, Llywydd. It's a pleasure to open this debate and move the motion in the name of my colleague Darren Millar—a motion that recognises, that shows appreciation for, and looks to support the essential role that farmers play in our economy and in our wider society. Farming is the silver thread running through the fabric of Wales's national identity. Welsh agriculture is not only a vital...

1. Questions to the First Minister: Primary Care Services in Mid and West Wales (12 Dec 2023)

Samuel Kurtz: I'm grateful to Cefin Campbell for submitting this question. There's rightly a lot of concern in the village of Laugharne following the announced closure of its surgery. My team and I have been in discussion with residents and the mayor of Laugharne, Pam Jones, sharing their concerns. One of the models that the Welsh Government has often talked about in terms of health delivery is ensuring...

2. Questions to the Minister for Rural Affairs and North Wales, and Trefnydd: Questions Without Notice from Party Spokespeople ( 6 Dec 2023)

Samuel Kurtz: You reference cuts to BPS in England; that’s money that has not been lost, that’s money transferred across to other schemes that are already in operation in England, which aren’t yet in operation here in Wales. So, that’s not money lost—that’s money making its way to English farmers where money isn’t, potentially, making its way to Welsh farmers come next year. But I’m an...

2. Questions to the Minister for Rural Affairs and North Wales, and Trefnydd: Questions Without Notice from Party Spokespeople ( 6 Dec 2023)

Samuel Kurtz: Thank you. Yes, 3,200 expressions of interest are just that—expressions of interest. That's no guarantee that 3,200 will actually accept the contracts that are put forward to them, especially if the budget for the Habitat Wales scheme is set incredibly low. Minister, last week at the winter fair, I was struck by the concerns expressed by the farming unions and stakeholders about the current...

2. Questions to the Minister for Rural Affairs and North Wales, and Trefnydd: Questions Without Notice from Party Spokespeople ( 6 Dec 2023)

Samuel Kurtz: Diolch, Llywydd. Minister, with just over three weeks remaining until the Habitat Wales scheme commences, we are still without any concrete information regarding the scheme's total budget. This lack of transparency is deeply concerning, especially considering the scheme's launch date is fast approaching. Over 3,200 farmers have expressed interest in the scheme, with approximately 50 per cent...

2. Questions to the Minister for Rural Affairs and North Wales, and Trefnydd: Support for Farmers ( 6 Dec 2023)

Samuel Kurtz: Thank you, Minister, and it's interesting you mention 'other grants when available', because it's been 14 months since the Welsh Government announced, with great fanfare, that up to £20 million of extra funding would be allocated to support farmers in complying with the water resources regulations, known to many as nitrate vulnerable zones. This announcement was met with much enthusiasm from...

1. Questions to the Minister for Finance and Local Government: Cost-of-living Pressures ( 6 Dec 2023)

Samuel Kurtz: Minister, with the council tax rebanding plans not expected to affect council tax bills until 2025, Carmarthenshire County Council has imposed a 6.8 per cent increase for band D properties this financial year, with similar increases likely next year. This places a significant burden on my constituents, particularly those on lower-than-average incomes who are already struggling to cope with...

2. Questions to the Minister for Rural Affairs and North Wales, and Trefnydd: Support for Farmers ( 6 Dec 2023)
