1. Questions to the First Minister: Young Musicians (18 Jun 2024)

Rhianon Passmore: I very much welcome, obviously, the national music service investment, but it was never set up for conservatoire-style study. The serious dismantling and erosion of Wales’s finest economic export, the Welsh National Opera, from its joint arts council funding bodies, will ruin its capacity to perform and deliver first-class world-beating schools outreach. And just one example, First...

Even with a £700 million reduction in the real-terms value of our budget, we continue to prioritise the national health service.

Scottish Parliament: Public Service Investment (13 Jun 2024)

Miles Briggs: I will come on to that in my speech. I welcomed what the health secretary said last week. I have been calling for that during the whole time that I have been in this Parliament. We need to have a national conversation about where our health service is. The fact that, every single week, as MSPs, we raise problems about our health service requires us to look in the mirror and consider why that...

Training new GPs is key and we have expanded GP...

4. Statement by the Cabinet Secretary for Health and Social Care: Six Goals for Urgent and Emergency Care Two Years On (11 Jun 2024)

Baroness Mair Eluned Morgan: Dirprwy Lywydd, the six goals programme is helping to provide better and more appropriate services for people who need urgent and emergency care. It has also helped to stabilise emergency care performance in the face of rising demand. But I am clear that there is much more that we need to do. Some of the issues facing emergency care and hospital discharge, in particular, are deep-rooted and...

1. Questions to the First Minister: The UK General Election (11 Jun 2024)

Vikki Howells: ...this funding is to Wales. Of course, we learnt in recent weeks that Rishi Sunak plans to raid the coffers of the shared prosperity fund in order to finance his deeply unpopular plan to bring back national service. And if this isn't bad enough, I was very concerned to read a briefing from the Industrial Communities Alliance, which states that 2,000 directly employed posts are set to be lost...
