4. Statement by the Minister for International Relations and Welsh Language: Consultation on national policy on Welsh language transmission in families (11 Feb 2020)

Suzy Davies: ...choose to speak more English when they become teenagers and so on. So, I would like to know what's the current offer to them? How do children at that age fit into the experiences of those in the Basque Country, for example? Because you do mention the Basque Country in the document, but I haven't heard many relevant details in terms of how that relates to older young people, if you like....

4. Statement by the Minister for International Relations and Welsh Language: Cymraeg 2050 Annual Report 2018-19 (28 Jan 2020)

Baroness Mair Eluned Morgan: ...speakers of other languages, and that they continue to learn about our plans for acquiring Welsh and promoting its use. Of course, we also have lessons to learn from Ireland and Scotland and the Basque Country as we consider how we convey ourselves to our fellow Welsh people and the world at large. The story of the Welsh language can so easily be one of fun, positivity, unity and support,...

3. Statement by the Minister for International Relations and Welsh Language: International Strategy (14 Jan 2020)

Delyth Jewell: ...co-ordinate your work with the Minister for the Welsh language, but you have both roles, so I really hope that you can revisit this. I do, however, welcome the plans to engage more closely with the Basque Country, Flanders and Brittany, and I'd welcome the opportunity to discuss your plans with you at a future date. But, Minister, there are two main things missing from this strategy. They...

6. Statement by the Minister for Environment, Energy and Rural Affairs: Food and Drink Wales Cluster Network ( 3 Dec 2019)

Lesley Griffiths: ...You talk about the cluster network, and this is probably the only example, I think, we have of this cluster policy in the Welsh Government. And I was very lucky to go out to both Catalonia and the Basque Country, about 18 months ago, to look at their cluster network—at the food cluster network in particular. But both of those countries, particularly Catalonia, have had a cluster policy...

8. Plaid Cymru Debate: Rolling Stock Strategy (20 Nov 2019)

John Griffiths: ...is the skilled workforce that CAF require. It's very noticeable when you walk around the plant that the engineers are very heavily male in gender, and this contrasts greatly to the situation in the Basque Country, where CAF are based, where it's approximately 50/50 between men and women for their engineers. So, we know I know already, but this really illustrates the need to change...

2. Questions to the Minister for International Relations and Welsh Language: Questions Without Notice from Party Spokespeople (18 Sep 2019)

Delyth Jewell: ..., irresponsible and non-progressive ways. So, one area that is highlighted in the strategy is to use the Welsh language to promote the unique heritage and culture of our nation. The strategy of the Basque Country, for example, includes a role for the Etxepare Basque Institute in order to promote the Basque language, and to increase the profile of the language and its culture across the...

4. Statement by the First Minister: Social Partnership ( 9 Jul 2019)

Mark Drakeford: ...FMQs this afternoon about the community bank, and of course that’s part of what other people do on a daily basis. So, what we’re doing is drawing upon other good examples, in Germany and in the Basque Country as well. There’s a group of people from the Basque Country, from the Government there, in Wales today. I’m going to meet them tomorrow, and that’s happening after I and...

Co-Operative and Mutual Businesses (27 Jun 2019)

Steven Baker: ...Jim Crow era to provide aid to one another when they were denied it by the state, whether through unjust laws or extra-legally. I am advised that the Mondragon co-operatives were founded in the Basque country partly as a response to the oppression of Franco. More recently, Taxiapp allows drivers in London to fight back against the competition of Uber. Of course, farmers co-operate through...

3. Questions to the Minister for International Relations and Welsh Language: The Welsh Government's International Strategy (26 Jun 2019)

David Rees: ...to Wales? But we want to see the strategies, because we want to be able to assess against your targets and your priorities as to whether those meetings are meaningful or not. When I met with the Basque President, he actually identified that they had already identified strategies, and nations and regions that they wanted to work with as a consequence of that. Have you got priorities in your...

Diplomatic Representation in Wales (18 Jun 2019)

Ben Lake: ...America to locate themselves in Wales. So there is economic potential in this endeavour. There are many examples that we could follow. We could look to countries such as Catalonia, Quebec and the Basque country, which have all worked proactively in recent years to encourage Governments to establish a presence in their capital cities. The Public Diplomacy Council of Catalonia, known as...

7. Statement by the Minister for International Relations and the Welsh Language: UN International Year of Indigenous Languages (21 May 2019)

Baroness Mair Eluned Morgan: ...—and the British-Irish Council. But I'm keen to build on that. When I was in the United States, the Welsh Government arranged a seminar in the United Nations with representatives from Quebec, the Basque Country and Flanders. They had a genuine interest in learning from what's happening in Wales, and I am sure there is more that we can continue to learn from the experiences of other...

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Billy McNeill MBE (20 May 2019)

Gavin Newlands: ...neither Billy nor Celtic has any real connection, awarded Billy McNeill its annual “One Club Man” award just three weeks after he died in a touching ceremony at the club’s stadium in the Basque region. Does that not speak volumes about the man’s character?

6. Debate on the External Affairs and Additional Legislation Committee Report: 'Wales' future relationship with Europe and the world' ( 1 May 2019)

Alun Davies: ..., that I welcome. But it also is a statement that speaks of a much higher ambition and a much wider vision. Mark Reckless's contribution spoke about the almost transactional approach taken by the Basque Country, and that's a perfectly fair and reasonable approach to take, and I make no criticism of that. But the ambition that I believe the  Government here has in mind, and I hope it will...

Bethan Sayed: ...that we have the opportunity, through our universities, to ensure that some of those networks continue. Certainly, Aberystwyth University provides various opportunities to visit nations such as the Basque Country, and we will be going there ourselves before too long, in order to develop those linguistic skills that are so important to us as a nation and as a nation that has a unique...

Jeremy Miles: ..., both among the Celtic nations, but also with other sub-state nations across the rest of Europe. We have memoranda of understanding or action plans already in place with Brittany and with the Basque Country, we're about to embark on a similar set of discussions with the Galicians, and we've developed, in particular with Quebec, for example, a memorandum of understanding around the...

2. Questions to the Minister for International Relations and Welsh Language: Relations with Stateless Nations (30 Jan 2019)

Baroness Mair Eluned Morgan: ...I wish to ensure that what we already have is right and proper. But I do think it's right that we need to develop the natural relationship that we have with regions such as Catalonia and the Basque Country. I don't think that we have necessarily always got to open offices. If we're going to focus on economic development, for example, it might be better to send people from here who have...

Scottish Parliament: St Andrew’s Day 2018 (29 Nov 2018)

Tom Arthur: ...year’s small business Saturday is particularly special as, for the first time, we will also be celebrating St Andrew’s fair Saturday. The fair Saturday movement originated in Bilbao, in the Basque Country in northern Spain. It started in 2015 as a positive cultural response to the excessive consumerism of black Friday. Since then, the movement has grown, year on year. Last year, events...

4. Statement by the Minister for Welsh Language and Lifelong Learning: The Welsh-language Technology Action Plan (23 Oct 2018)

Baroness Mair Eluned Morgan: .... We have quite a good story to tell, I think. They often come to us to ask about what we're doing, but of course, there is always room for us to learn, particularly from areas such as the Basque Country, I think. So, we do acknowledge the work that the Commission has done, and yes, of course we are in discussions with the Commission. But, if we do exit the European Union, that...

1. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Finance: Questions Without Notice from Party Spokespeople (10 Oct 2018)

Mr Neil Hamilton: ...be more active tax planners and are potentially more mobile than those on lower incomes.' So, we start from a position, I think, where the ground soil is fertile, and although I appreciate that the Basque Country may be different from the experience in Switzerland—you can't take one single survey as indicating, as a form of genius, behavioural effect across Europe, or in the United...
