2. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Climate Change and Rural Affairs: Communities at Risk of Flooding in South Wales Central (15 May 2024)

Heledd Fychan: I'd like to ask you specifically, though, about the practical support for communities at risk of flooding. You'll be aware of the trauma felt by many for years after a serious flooding event, the trauma that they feel every time it rains heavily. The Welsh Government has funded some flood forum work, to develop flood action groups, but this is quite inconsistent across Wales. We don't have a...

2. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Climate Change and Rural Affairs: Communities at Risk of Flooding in South Wales Central (15 May 2024)

Heledd Fychan: 7. How is the Welsh Government supporting communities at risk of flooding in South Wales Central? OQ61097

QNR: Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Finance, Constitution and Cabinet Office (15 May 2024)

Heledd Fychan: What discussions has the Cabinet Secretary had with the Cabinet Secretary for Housing, Local Government and Planning about providing Welsh Government funding to set up a scheme for private homeowners who are unable to afford repairs associated with finding RAAC in their homes?

5. Statement by the Minister for Mental Health and Early Years: Improving mental health in Wales (14 May 2024)

Heledd Fychan: May I ask, Minister, what impact do you believe the cuts have had on what you can provide? You mention the importance of the third sector, but the third sector is on its knees and many of these services can't be sustained, despite playing a crucial role in improving mental health. Also, we've been briefed by ColegauCymru and Sport Wales about the crucial funding that it receives, but as you...

3. Statement by the Cabinet Secretary for Education: Our national mission — delivering on Wales’s education priorities (14 May 2024)

Heledd Fychan: It's quite difficult to disagree with your statement today. I appreciate that you are new, but you have been, previously, Chair of the Senedd's Children, Young People and Education Committee in the fifth Senedd and you've been part of the Cabinet, so I do think it's fair that we ask for more timescales and so on. I would appreciate it if you could commit today to when we will see that level...

2. Business Statement and Announcement (14 May 2024)

Heledd Fychan: Trefnydd, a number of constituents have contacted me as a result of the announcement by the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama that the programme of music, drama and acting lessons for children and young people is likely to come to an end because of the budgetary situation within the college. There is mention in the statement from the college of collaboration with National Music Service...

8. Plaid Cymru Debate: Coal tip and opencast mine remediation ( 8 May 2024)

Heledd Fychan: I also represent South Wales Central, and my contribution will be very different from the other Member that represents South Wales Central. I visited Big Pit recently. Some of you know that I used to work for Amgueddfa Cymru, so I used to go around a lot, but I actually took the time, went round the displays, and reminded myself of some of the stories that are told there, and actually how...

7. Debate on petition P-06-1392, 'Reform of the additional learning needs Code of Wales 2021' ( 8 May 2024)

Heledd Fychan: Thank you so much for the petition and making sure that we do make sure that we are able to highlight some of the real problems that we're facing with ensuring that every child receives the support and education they need and deserve. It shouldn't be a fight. Many of us will fight with you. But we need to see those changes, so thank you for your work. But you're not alone; we'll continue to...

7. Debate on petition P-06-1392, 'Reform of the additional learning needs Code of Wales 2021' ( 8 May 2024)

Heledd Fychan: When it comes to learners who need additional support through the medium of Welsh, there are incredible inconsistencies. Families have had to change the language of their home in my region, are assessed as a family through the medium of English rather than the medium of Welsh, meaning that assessments are incomplete, and others not having any sort of appropriate provision close by. How can...

7. Debate on petition P-06-1392, 'Reform of the additional learning needs Code of Wales 2021' ( 8 May 2024)

Heledd Fychan: I'd like to begin my contribution today by stating my full support for the petition. It's clear to me from meeting with protesters, from being a member of the Children, Young People and Education Committee and from the casework that I receive as a Senedd Member that too many children and young people are unable to access the support and education they need and deserve, and that this is...

5. 90-second Statements ( 8 May 2024)

Heledd Fychan: The Welsh language is flourishing in Treorchy. That was the clear message at the Gŵyl Mabon festival held at the Lion in Treorchy last weekend. Gŵyl Mabon is a brand-new Welsh language festival, and a fun-packed day was held at the Lion from 10 a.m. until 11.30 p.m., with something for everyone. Martyn Geraint was as popular as ever with people of all ages, but especially the children....

3. Debate: Stage 4 of the Senedd Cymru (Members and Elections) Bill ( 8 May 2024)

Heledd Fychan: Yesterday was the day for reflecting on the first 25 years of devolution, and today is the day for looking forward, and I must admit that I consider it an honour to be a Member here and to have the opportunity to cast my vote for these long-awaited reforms that are before us today. I'm going to start by thanking everyone that has supported us as parliamentarians to reach this historic stage,...

2. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Education: Learner Absences ( 8 May 2024)

Heledd Fychan: Thank you, Cabinet Secretary. You'll be well aware that the cost-of-living crisis has impacted on attendance in schools. We've heard countless times in this Chamber and, I'm sure, from our constituents about children not being able to afford to get to school. My colleague Delyth Jewell mentioned it in terms of the Learner Travel (Wales) Measure 2008. Can I ask what urgent steps are you taking...

2. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Education: Questions Without Notice from Party Spokespeople ( 8 May 2024)

Heledd Fychan: Thank you, Cabinet Secretary, but, obviously, a NASUWT Cymru survey last year showed that 75 per cent of teachers were considering leaving the profession. I know that the Government has these plans, but they don't mean anything on paper if they don't transfer into action in terms of having teachers in our classrooms and teachers remaining in those roles. On 3 May, headteachers in Blaenau...

2. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Education: Questions Without Notice from Party Spokespeople ( 8 May 2024)

Heledd Fychan: Thank you, Llywydd. Cabinet Secretary, I would like to ask you today about teacher training, recruitment and retention. The numbers going into teaching are still far below than what we need to achieve all of the Government’s education objectives. In 2021-22, 2,292 teaching posts were advertised, while 1,175 teachers left the profession—a combination of leaving to go to another profession...

2. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Education: Learner Absences ( 8 May 2024)

Heledd Fychan: 3. What steps is the Cabinet Secretary taking to ensure a decrease in the number of learner absences in schools? OQ61052

4. Statement by the Cabinet Secretary for Climate Change and Rural Affairs: Priorities for climate change and rural affairs ( 7 May 2024)

Heledd Fychan: Thank you so much for your positive response to Vikki Howells. Certainly, flooding devastated so many communities in 2020, as, of course, we've seen repeatedly, but the risk to life at that time was considerable and continues to be so. At the time, following the floods, NRW published a report and emphasised the need for a national conversation. They mentioned that they were 70 jobs short of...

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

Heledd Fychan: Twenty-five years is certainly something that we should mark, and I'm sure we would all reflect on the policies that we believe have made a difference. For me, one of the things that I haven't heard mentioned yet is free access to museums. Wales was the first nation on these islands to introduce that, eight months before England, thanks to Jenny Randerson, who was the then Minister. It was a...

2. Business Statement and Announcement ( 7 May 2024)

Heledd Fychan: Trefnydd, I'd like to ask for a statement from the Cabinet Secretary for Culture and Social Justice on the future of Welsh National Opera. This follows the publication of a letter written by the singer Elizabeth Atherton, and signed by over 170 people, that claims that the reduction of 35 per cent in the funding from Arts Council England and the 11.8 per cent cut from the Arts Council of...

8. Plaid Cymru Debate: Cap on political donations ( 1 May 2024)

Heledd Fychan: I particularly want to just thank you, Adam, for just bringing the debate back to what's important here, and reflecting as well, whilst listening, both to the previous debate and this one, about some of the debates we've been having, looking at Senedd reform, about the barriers to participation, why people don't stand for election currently, and why we don't reflect the whole of the...
