6. Statement by the Cabinet Secretary for North Wales and Transport: Priorities for Transport: Listening, partnership, making change (23 Apr 2024)

Heledd Fychan: I welcome today's statement. Can I focus my comments on buses, please? I was pleased to hear in your response the acknowledgement that this is the only mode of transport for a number of people in our communities. I know that it is often one of the complaints, because it then impacts on people being able to reach medical appointments, which then means missed appointments, and so on. We do need...

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

Heledd Fychan: I'm delighted that you mentioned the Welsh language in your statement, something the First Minister didn't do when he made his priorities statement last week, and that was noticed by many people. Whilst agreeing with your comments on Welsh-speaking communities, clearly the Welsh language should be intertwined into all of the Government's economic priorities. So, can you outline how you will...

4. Statement by the Cabinet Secretary for Health and Social Care: Creating a smoke-free generation and tackling youth vaping (23 Apr 2024)

Heledd Fychan: Thank you to the Cabinet Secretary. I’m pleased that the former education Minister is here too, because certainly one of the messages I’m hearing from schools, but also from children and young people, is how much of a problem this is. It also means that schools, in trying to deal with this, are having to lock toilets, which means, then, in terms of periods and so on, that there is a lack...

Motions to elect Members to committees (23 Apr 2024)

Heledd Fychan: I formally move.

2. Business Statement and Announcement (23 Apr 2024)

Heledd Fychan: Trefnydd, I'd like to ask for two statements, if I may. The first statement that I would like is from the First Minister, responding to all of the reports around the £200,000 that he accepted as part of his leadership campaign. We have heard questions once again this week, and we don't feel that the answers are adequate. For the credibility of this Senedd, we need a full statement, an...

5. Debate on the General Principles of the Residential Outdoor Education (Wales) Bill (17 Apr 2024)

Heledd Fychan: May I start by thanking Sam Rowlands for all of his hard work on this Bill? I’ve had the pleasure of being on the Children, Young People and Education Committee scrutinising this Bill. I’ve asked a number of questions of Sam and we’ve had a number of very lively discussions on the issues, and I do believe, as Peter Fox said, that there is benefit in us moving forward with this Bill, and...

3. Topical Questions: National Museum Cardiff (17 Apr 2024)

Heledd Fychan: Thank you very much, Cabinet Secretary, and first of all, may I congratulate you on your appointment and say how pleased I am to see culture elevated within Government, and welcome now how it's connected to social justice? I very much hope that we can work together constructively and positively to tackle the problems faced by our national institutions. I also hope that we can all agree in...

9. Short Debate: A national plan for flood resilience (20 Mar 2024)

Heledd Fychan: Thank you, Carolyn, for bringing this debate forward today.

9. Short Debate: A national plan for flood resilience (20 Mar 2024)

Heledd Fychan: I'm really pleased to contribute, just briefly. The Minister will know that this is an issue I feel passionately about as well. I really do think you're right: it is a national problem; it's not just for those communities that are at risk. And I would also welcome any consideration the Minister has had about a national flood forum for Wales, because I think it is really important that we...

5. Member Debate under Standing Order 11.21(iv): National collections (20 Mar 2024)

Heledd Fychan: It would have been nice if you'd spoken so much about culture over the past three years. We've asked time and time again for you to make oral statements and answer questions, and yet you haven't. So, I will have this opportunity to finish this debate and ask the Welsh Government to take culture seriously, to listen to the debates we've put forward and understand all those points that have...

5. Member Debate under Standing Order 11.21(iv): National collections (20 Mar 2024)

Heledd Fychan: Culture sits within the economy portfolio. You would've thought that being in that portfolio, you would've been able to realise its economic potential—to understand, for every pound spent, how much you get back. But that hasn't been happening. So, you're actually curtailing—

5. Member Debate under Standing Order 11.21(iv): National collections (20 Mar 2024)

Heledd Fychan: No, it's not a matter of the NHS or culture. These aren't choices. It's like those questionnaires that ask, 'Do you want to have your bins emptied, or would you like a museum?' Those are not choices. We should be prioritising the richness of our culture and heritage and realising—. Because, actually, we have a future geneartions Act here in Wales. It means not operating in silos, not...

5. Member Debate under Standing Order 11.21(iv): National collections (20 Mar 2024)

Heledd Fychan: You wouldn't when you were speaking, so, no. I think we do need to consider seriously the damage being done to our institutions, which is immeasurable. But it is not too late for this Government to take action. You mentioned the cultural strategy, and yes, we've been pleased to be able to work with you, but what will happen when there's no funding to support that strategy? The fact that even...

5. Member Debate under Standing Order 11.21(iv): National collections (20 Mar 2024)

Heledd Fychan: It's about choices. Because also, I don't think—

5. Member Debate under Standing Order 11.21(iv): National collections (20 Mar 2024)

Heledd Fychan: But, before then, where was the focus on our cultural institutions? These old buildings haven't just suddenly become in need of repair. We do need to reflect, also, on other Governments. We understand that this financial settlement has been difficult—of course it has. But the same is also true in other nations, and rather than cut funding to culture and heritage, Governments in both...

5. Member Debate under Standing Order 11.21(iv): National collections (20 Mar 2024)

Heledd Fychan: Diolch yn fawr iawn. I don't know where to start on my response, because I found that very overdefensive, perhaps, as a response. Deputy Minister, you mentioned that you were about to publish a written statement; I've been asking for that written statement—. Actually, I've been asking for an oral statement in the Senedd for months. I asked in June 2021 for you to take this matter seriously....

5. Member Debate under Standing Order 11.21(iv): National collections (20 Mar 2024)
