6. Plaid Cymru Debate: Devolved powers and funding (10 Jul 2024)

Adam Price: ...we are, having reached the end of the journey, and what is left? Well, even youth justice seems to have gone now. So, what is left is considering—considering—the devolution of the probation service, but—wait for it, wait for it—in the context of negotiations that are happening across England and Wales. So, it's not even devolution at a national level to Wales, but saying, 'Well,...

2. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Education: Holiday Clubs (10 Jul 2024)

Lynne Neagle: Thank you very much for that question, Peter. And, as you rightly indicate, settings registered with Care Inspectorate Wales must have regard to the national minimum standards for regulated childcare, and that includes specific standards relating to safeguarding, to ensure children are safe from harm, abuse and neglect and that parents are confident all possible steps to safeguard them are...

2. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Education: Musical Instruments (10 Jul 2024)

Rhianon Passmore: ...tribute also to Julie Morgan for her work and support for the cultural life of Wales. So, it's important to recognise, as the Cabinet Secretary says, the groundbreaking significance of the first national music service, and in particular, I wanted to just pay tribute to Mari Pritchard for her innovative leadership. And you've mentioned some of the pan-Wales programmes that are actually...

3. Statement by the First Minister: The Legislative Programme ( 9 Jul 2024)

Vaughan Gething: Well, that is a significant misunderstanding, innocent or otherwise, about the purpose of a legislative programme. We as a Government commit our most significant areas of funding resource to the national health service and are proud to do so: a 4 per cent and more increase to the NHS budget in the budget that this place passed last year, compared to just over 1 per cent over the border in...

Message to Attend the Lords Commissioners: Election of Speaker ( 9 Jul 2024)

Adrian Ramsay: ..., to represent our residents. We appreciate your support in enabling us to do that. May I associate myself with the remarks of the Prime Minister about the importance of politics being about public service? I very much hope that in this new Parliament we can all move to a less tribal form of politics, where we work together where we can agree and move things forward in the national...

1. Questions to the First Minister: Fair Funding for Wales ( 9 Jul 2024)

Vaughan Gething: I've already chosen to govern in service of the people of Wales, and I'm very proud to do so. And I'll carry on undertaking that role with partners in the UK Government. And, actually, in the conversation with Keir Starmer, of course I discussed the future of fairness around Barnett, of course I discussed the investment opportunities in rail infrastructure and the need to deliver something...

8. Welsh Conservatives Debate: NHS waiting lists ( 3 Jul 2024)

Baroness Mair Eluned Morgan: the face of huge public and political expectation. And those demands are significant here and across the rest of the UK. The NHS, we all know, is an incredibly trusted and well-used service. Every month it deals with 2 million contacts from the public across Wales, a phenomenal amount for a population of just over 3 million people. Now, I've spent the past few weeks knocking doors up...

7. Debate on the Climate Change, Environment and Infrastructure Committee Report, 'Report on rail services and Transport for Wales’ performance 2023-24' ( 3 Jul 2024)

Llyr Gruffydd: ..., and that it will be publishing its most recent KPIs after the UK general election later on this week. Moving on, therefore, to the second key theme of the report, which is the way in which rail services are delivered. Passengers must be at the heart of any successful rail service. Unfortunately, there were high service cancellation rates and, indeed, low passenger satisfaction scores for...

6. Member Debate under Standing Order 11.21(iv): Dentistry training ( 3 Jul 2024)

Mabon ap Gwynfor: ...year, and some of those are short-term arrangements more often than not. This means that the scarce resources of the Welsh Government that are being used to fund these students are going to fund services that will go across the border or elsewhere. Those students are not staying in Wales, so we are missing out. Cardiff University is doing an excellent job in training the dentists here, and...

Group 2: Electoral registration (Amendments 7, 28, 8, 29) ( 2 Jul 2024)

Adam Price: doesn't in our view give you rights to have greater freedom to decide in elections where you will cast your vote, and that should be reflected in the electoral system, particularly for national elections. We believe that action is needed to deal with the lack of clarity on this issue, and it's worth noting that local registration officers do have the right to challenge people who...

1. Questions to the First Minister: International Workers in the NHS and Social Care ( 2 Jul 2024)

Vaughan Gething: Yes. I'm very proud to recognise that we greatly value the contribution of our international workforce in Wales today, but also from the very history, from the start of our national health service, which celebrates yet another birthday on 5 July, and I hope it has an early birthday present with a change in Government at a UK level. The vital work that our workforce do in health and social...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Doctors’ Rotas ( 1 Jul 2024)

Mike Nesbitt: not for one moment think that junior doctors want to be junior doctors just because of the salary band that that offers; it is a vocation. They probably have good ideas about how to improve the National Health Service, how to improve productivity and how to achieve better outcomes. There is an awful lot to discuss, and it is perfectly reasonable to say that the Department is willing to...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Self-directed Support: Payments and Budgets ( 1 Jul 2024)

Mike Nesbitt: receipt of a direct payment. I am aware that there can be a disparity in the rates paid to personal assistants. However, the rate of pay is ultimately a private arrangement between the service user and the personal assistant whom they employ, and, on that basis, the rate of payment to the personal assistant is negotiable. The service user, as the employer, is responsible for meeting all...

Scottish Parliament: Action Mesothelioma Day 2024 (27 Jun 2024)

Marie McNair: ...Hope Robertson—have passed. I thank all the MSPs who signed my recent Scottish Parliament motion paying tribute to them. It was an honour to present copies of the motion to the families on international workers memorial day. Sadly, just this month, Bob Dickie’s wife, Isabel, also passed away. I know that the Clydebank Asbestos Group was heartbroken by that news, and I am,...

Scottish Parliament: General Question Time: Midwives (27 Jun 2024)

Scottish Parliament: First Minister’s Question Time: Cabinet (Meetings) (27 Jun 2024)

John Swinney: in our schools and the appointment of mental health counsellors in order try to provide early intervention to reduce the crystallisation of demand for child and adolescent mental health services, so that young people are supported at an earlier stage.
