7. Plaid Cymru Debate: Wales-specific COVID inquiry (21 Feb 2024)

Heledd Fychan: Of course, there needs to be a UK-wide COVID inquiry. And, of course, Wales needs to participate. But, as we've consistently said in support of the COVID bereaved families, there is also a need for a Wales-specific COVID inquiry, just as is taking place in Scotland. Why? Decisions affecting people living in Wales were taken in Wales by Welsh Government Ministers. They were in an unenviable...

2. Questions to the Minister for Education and the Welsh Language: The National Eisteddfod (21 Feb 2024)

Heledd Fychan: Thank you, Minister. As you can imagine, I'm sure, there is huge excitement in the area that the Eisteddfod is coming, and I hope that everyone here will come to Pontypridd in August of this year. There hasn't been a National Eisteddfod in the area for decades, and many have never experienced an Eisteddfod, so it is a big ask in terms of convincing people of the importance of the Eisteddfod...

2. Questions to the Minister for Education and the Welsh Language: Questions Without Notice from Party Spokespeople (21 Feb 2024)

Heledd Fychan: Thank you, Minister. I'm sure you understand that I only have a minute to ask you a question, so trying to get all of the data in that minute is very difficult. But, one other element of the data also shows that the number of male applicants fell by 2 per cent, while the number of women applying to university fell by twice as much, by 4 per cent. We also know that there is a reduction as...

2. Questions to the Minister for Education and the Welsh Language: Questions Without Notice from Party Spokespeople (21 Feb 2024)

Heledd Fychan: Thank you, Llywydd. Last week, UCAS published its latest data, which show a reduction in the number of applications from people in Wales for places at university. Wales also has the lowest application rate of any country in the UK. Not only that, the data also show a reduction in the number of applicants for places on courses where we desperately need more people with those skills, such as...

2. Questions to the Minister for Education and the Welsh Language: The National Eisteddfod (21 Feb 2024)

Heledd Fychan: 6. How is the Welsh Government working with the National Eisteddfod of Wales and Rhondda Cynon Taf County Borough Council to ensure a legacy for the Welsh language in light of the Eisteddfod visiting the area this year? OQ60683

11. Debate: The Police Settlement 2024-25 (20 Feb 2024)

Heledd Fychan: One of the things that hit the headlines last week was around the SchoolBeat.Cymru project or initiative, and obviously it's been of huge concern, both to the police, police and crime commissioners and schools, but also people within the community I represent, that this is coming to an end. Obviously, the police have decided to fund it for the rest of the academic year, but it was...

10. The Official Statistics (Wales) (Amendment) Order 2024 (20 Feb 2024)

Heledd Fychan: Whilst obviously welcoming the approach, HEFCW is not currently an official statistics body, so can I ask therefore what consultation has the Minister had with HEFCW or universities to identify and discuss the potential impacts or issues, including cost implications, of this change?

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

Heledd Fychan: Thank you, Minister, for your statement. I enjoyed reading the report very much and I'd like to congratulate everyone who's been involved with this innovative and important work. It is really valuable for people to know the breadth of what is going on, and I think that one of the challenges is how we promote the fact that these resources are available, so that as many people as possible can...

6. Statement by the Minister for Social Justice and Chief Whip: The Welsh Benefits System and Charter (20 Feb 2024)

Heledd Fychan: Thank you, Llywydd, and thank you, Minister, for this important statement. In responding to the consultation by the Independent Commission on the Constitutional Future of Wales regarding the regulation of linguistic duties and reserved policy matters, the Welsh Language Commissioner noted that social security, child support, pensions and compensation are also reserved matters. Evidently, we...

2. Business Statement and Announcement (20 Feb 2024)

Heledd Fychan: Trefnydd, I'd like to ask for two statement, please. First, you'll be aware, I'm sure, that we've all had a number of e-mails from members of unions in the National Library of Wales and Amgueddfa Cymru, conveying concerns about cuts, but specifically in terms of the safety of the national collections. I'd like to ask for a statement from the Deputy Minister, outlining how she is ensuring the...

7. Plaid Cymru Debate: The health service ( 7 Feb 2024)

Heledd Fychan: Huw Irranca-Davies is, of course, correct in saying that miracles are being performed daily by the NHS, but this is against all odds, because we can't shy away from the fact that, for many people, there is a health emergency. They are not receiving the care that they need and deserve in a timely manner. And this isn't an overstatement, or, as Mabon said, it's not a headline-grabbing statement...

3. Topical Questions: Students in Wales ( 7 Feb 2024)

Heledd Fychan: Thank you, Minister. Without a doubt, universities are in a critical situation. Time and time again, the former vice-chancellor of Cardiff University, Colin Riordan, warned that their financial situation was unsustainable. In an article in June 2023, he was very candid about the fact that they had to be overly dependent on international student fees, meaning that students from Wales were...

3. Topical Questions: Students in Wales ( 7 Feb 2024)

Heledd Fychan: 'a risky strategy, and arguably difficult to defend in moral terms.'

3. Topical Questions: Students in Wales ( 7 Feb 2024)

Heledd Fychan: Students are also under increasing stress, affected, as you said, by the cost-of-living crisis, with 35 per cent of students telling NUS Cymru in June 2023 that they had considered leaving their courses because of that.Of course, our belief, in Plaid Cymru, is that education should be free, and that investing in young people is an investment not only in their future, but also the future of...

3. Topical Questions: Students in Wales ( 7 Feb 2024)

Heledd Fychan: 1. What assessment has the Welsh Government made of the effect of increasing tuition fee caps and cutting postgraduate support grants on the probable number of students applying to study in Welsh Universities? TQ981

QNR: Questions to the Deputy Minister for Social Services ( 7 Feb 2024)

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

Heledd Fychan: 'fought with different governments to get adequate resources to preserve what is now completely destroyed'.

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

Heledd Fychan: Heaven help us if the same thing happened here, and I would like to know today what discussions the Minister has had with the Deputy Minister with responsibility for culture regarding this matter, and what assurances she can give us that the cuts will not endanger our national collections. Could you also provide further assurances that the policy of free entry to our national museums, which...
