Jerome Mayhew: ...of time, let me move back to the topic of this debate, which is defence and foreign affairs.

Business of the House (18 Jul 2024)

Lucy Powell: ...be clear: it is not about changing the traditions and customs of this place—I know that you will be pleased to hear that, Mr Speaker—but the country voted for change. We will be a Government of service and begin that journey of restoring trust in politics and Parliament—action, not words. That is why we have hit the ground running by establishing the national wealth fund, resetting...

Health Services: Rural Areas (17 Jul 2024)

Jamie Stone: ...at UK level, and I look forward to working with the Government in these endeavours, but the fact is that there is not the delivery under devolution that there should be.

Heledd Fychan: ...it is to our democracy. It will be extremely important with the 2026 election, of course. For one thing, to attract candidates to stand for election.

Because one of the things in relation to the general election that we've just had...

King’s Speech - Debate (1st Day): Motion to Adjourn (17 Jul 2024)

Baroness Smith of Basildon: ...in his first address in Downing Street, the Prime Minister reflected that too few people believe that the future will be better for their children.

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.

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.

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.

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.
