6. Debate: The Draft Budget 2024-25 ( 6 Feb 2024)

Heledd Fychan: Could I start by associating myself with the comments made by Jayne Bryant as Chair of the Children, Young People and Education Committee? I'm obviously a member of the committee, so it's no surprise that I agree. But those points were very important—some of them were echoed by Darren Millar. But certainly, we have to think seriously. If we're serious about the Well-being of Future...

4. Statement by the Minister for Education and the Welsh Language: Vocational qualifications ( 6 Feb 2024)

Heledd Fychan: Can I thank the Minister for today's statement? I would like to echo your thanks to Sharron Lusher for her work in leading the review, and to the members of the steering committee for their contribution. As you mentioned, of course, this stems from the co-operation agreement. Plaid Cymru does strongly believe in the importance of vocational education, and also agrees with the important...

2. Business Statement and Announcement ( 6 Feb 2024)

Heledd Fychan: Trefnydd, I'd like to ask for a statement, please, from the Deputy Minister for Arts, Sport and Tourism relating to how organisations within her portfolio are responding to the cuts in the draft budget. Obviously, we'll be discussing the draft budget later on, but there is a specific point. Many organisations have already opened voluntary redundancy schemes, in anticipation of the cuts, and...

Heledd Fychan: Before the vote.

13. Welsh Conservatives Debate: Six Nations rugby broadcasting (31 Jan 2024)

Heledd Fychan: All I ask is that you make sure that those who have the powers actually deliver what you're calling for. Call out the Tory MPs from Wales who voted against this last night. 

13. Welsh Conservatives Debate: Six Nations rugby broadcasting (31 Jan 2024)

Heledd Fychan: And I will turn to Welsh at this point. The other element here is in relation to the Welsh language. The fact that our international matches are available on S4C is extremely important. The fact that rugby clubs throughout Wales—bars et cetera—choose to broadcast through the medium of Welsh and that people hear the Welsh language as a living language and that many people at home choose to...

13. Welsh Conservatives Debate: Six Nations rugby broadcasting (31 Jan 2024)

Heledd Fychan: The irony is not lost on Plaid Cymru, and I'm surprised this wasn't mentioned, that on the eve of this debate, tabled by the Conservatives calling for the six nations broadcasting to remain free-to-air, every single one of their colleagues in Westminster voted against exactly that. So, we completely support this, that's why I raised a topical question last week, but how are we going to ensure...

11. Debate on the Culture, Communications, Welsh Language, Sport, and International Relations Committee Report, 'Behind the scenes: The creative industries workforce' (31 Jan 2024)

Heledd Fychan: May I start by thanking the Chair for outlining the work of the committee superbly at the beginning of this debate? I was fortunate enough to be a member of the committee when this work was ongoing, and it was an inquiry that was not only interesting but also important in my view, because, after all, the creative industries and the growth in those industries are extremely important in terms...

The general principles of the Senedd Cymru (Members and Elections) Bill and the financial resolution in respect of the Senedd Cymru (Members and Elections) Bill (30 Jan 2024)

Heledd Fychan: Today, we mark another step forward in the journey of this Bill, which is also a major step forward for Wales. I think it's important that we reflect upon the importance of this Bill. The provisions in the Bill, taken together, are a definite and long-awaited step towards the creation of a Senedd that can better serve the people of Wales and create a real Parliament for Wales that is...

The general principles of the Senedd Cymru (Members and Elections) Bill and the financial resolution in respect of the Senedd Cymru (Members and Elections) Bill (30 Jan 2024)

Heledd Fychan: Who selected you to be a candidate? Was it the general public or your political party? How is this different to how candidates are currently selected?

7. Debate: The Welsh Language Commissioner’s Annual Report 2022-23 (30 Jan 2024)

Heledd Fychan: Thank you, Llywydd, and thank you, Minister, for your statement. Clearly, we're focusing on the Welsh Language Commissioner's annual report, but it's good to be reminded of those things in the co-operation agreement, and there is reference in this report to those.  I would like to start by paying tribute to the commissioner and the active team of staff that she has. I think the fact that...

2. Business Statement and Announcement (30 Jan 2024)

Heledd Fychan: Trefnydd, I'd like to request a statement following an investigative piece published at the weekend by The Sunday Times regarding cash for courses, which exposed that Cardiff University was one of the universities named that were offering to recruit foreign students on far lower grades than we would expect from students here in Wales, meaning that students are missing out, having to have...

1. Questions to the First Minister: Homelessness (30 Jan 2024)

Heledd Fychan: Thank you, First Minister. Over the past month, it has become apparent that the former Toys 'R' Us building in Cardiff Bay is being used as temporary accommodation for individuals waiting for homes. Of course, emergency shelter is needed immediately for anyone who is facing homelessness, but the conditions in which vulnerable people are being housed are very concerning to me and concerning to...

1. Questions to the First Minister: Homelessness (30 Jan 2024)

Heledd Fychan: 3. How is the Welsh Government supporting individuals facing homelessness in South Wales Central? OQ60591

3. Topical Questions: Six Nations Rugby (24 Jan 2024)

Heledd Fychan: Thank you very much. I would hope that nobody would disagree with you or me in terms of the importance of ensuring that our national sports teams, both men and women, are available to view free of charge, because as we know, supporting our national sides encourages people of all ages to become involved in sport, not just as fans. And we take pride as a nation when our team wins and also...

3. Topical Questions: Six Nations Rugby (24 Jan 2024)

Heledd Fychan: 1. Will the Minister make a statement about the UK Government's decision not to include six nations rugby in the free-to-air category for broadcasting purposes? TQ960
