5. Debate on the Climate Change, Environment and Infrastructure Committee Report, 'Annual scrutiny of the National Infrastructure Commission for Wales: 2023' ( 5 Jun 2024)

Julie James: ...across Wales. And whilst those significant reports are very important, and they will assist us to map out ways forward on big policy issues, I do think that one of the big strengths of the National Infrastructure Commission for Wales is to generate debate and discussion on very complex issues. For example, late last year, in conjunction with the Royal Town Planning Institute, the...

2. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Health and Social Care: Questions Without Notice from Party Spokespeople ( 5 Jun 2024)

Mabon ap Gwynfor: Thank you for that response. Over recent months, the consequences of the lack of willingness of successive health Ministers to take responsibility for the systemic issues in our health service, as we've seen already today, have been all too clear to see. Last week, we saw them in the damning conclusions from the Royal College of Psychiatrists report into mental health and learning disability...

3. Debate: The Infected Blood Inquiry Report ( 4 Jun 2024)

Julie Morgan: ..., Sybil and Bev, illustrative of the experience, of course, of many others. Sybil had a heart operation in 1989. Ten years later, she received a letter from the head of the Wales blood transfusion service and got the news that she had blood infected with hepatitis C. She was told not to use the same crockery or cutlery as her husband, and not to have an intimate relationship. Sybil...

1. Questions to the First Minister: Hospital Services in South Wales East ( 4 Jun 2024)

Vaughan Gething: ...to hear of the instance that the Member has highlighted. I can't address individual matters, but I hope that the Member, together with the health board, is looking at that, and there are other services available, including Llais and others, to help support the Member if there is a complaint or a concern to be raised, and it's important that concerns are raised. I remember, when the Member...

1. Questions to the First Minister: MRI Scans ( 4 Jun 2024)

Vaughan Gething: ...health boards that they should utilise all available capacity, including through the independent sector, to reduce waiting times. Our overall objective is to have a genuinely sustainable public national health service.

1. Questions to the First Minister: The North Wales Economy ( 4 Jun 2024)

Vaughan Gething: ...across the UK, a Government that can make decisions. The reason why we have not seen investment delivered in a new generation of nuclear, whether that is for radioisotopes desperately needed in our national health service or whether it's new small modular reactors or larger technology, is because the Conservatives have never managed to field a Minister who could make a decision. It is...

1. Questions to the First Minister: Economic Development ( 4 Jun 2024)

Vaughan Gething: Thank you for the question. I agree that the national service model proposed as a shock by Rishi Sunak was not just a shock to young people, but a shock to many Conservative MPs and indeed, Ministers—a desperate gimmick at the start of a crucial general election for Wales and Britain. And the Member's right to draw a contrast between that and what we have chosen to do with the young...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Opposition Business: Independent Inquiry into the Alleged Use of Wiretapping of Northern Ireland Journalists ( 4 Jun 2024)

Naomi Long: ...to the use and oversight of covert surveillance powers in the UK. The Investigatory Powers Act 2016 (IPA) provides a framework for the use of investigatory powers by the security and intelligence services, law enforcement bodies and other public authorities. The legislation is UK-wide, dealing as it does with excepted matters. The powers cover the interception of communications; the...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Ministerial Statements: Health: Vision Statement ( 3 Jun 2024)

Mike Nesbitt: I thank the Member for his question. I am aware, as, I am sure, he and the House are, that the health service is an incredibly complex organisation with so many moving parts. To do something in one area inevitably is repercussive and will have implications for another area. As I am sure the Member is aware, I spent a few weeks as my predecessor's Assembly Private Secretary. I tried to use as...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Ministerial Statements: Health: Vision Statement ( 3 Jun 2024)

Mike Nesbitt: ...and advancing a respectful, positive working environment for each and every member of the Health and Social Care (HSC) family. I refuse to accept the fatalistic narrative coming from some that the National Health Service is spiralling towards inevitable failure. In three short words, my ambition is this: for better outcomes. Obstacles to better outcomes include short-term challenges, the...

Scottish Parliament: Post Office (Horizon System) Offences (Scotland) Bill (30 May 2024)

Alex Cole-Hamilton: ...in support of an important and historic piece of legislation. When I think of the sub-postmasters in my constituency, I think of public servants who, for very little money, offer a service above and beyond the call of duty in more cases than not. I see a reflection of the duties that we perform as parliamentarians in the community service that they offer. They perform a public...

Scottish Parliament: NHS Physiotherapy Workforce (30 May 2024)

Sue Webber: ...been no such increase in Scotland in the past decade. Although Scottish course programmes are oversubscribed with applicants, not enough places are being funded to meet the needs of Scotland’s national health service. Increasing the number of training places in physiotherapy programmes and enhancing support for students could and would help to boost the number of new graduates...

Scottish Parliament: First Minister’s Question Time: NHS Waiting Times (30 May 2024)

Anas Sarwar: ...chose to put his party before the country. Had Michael Matheson been at Westminster, he would now be facing a recall petition and, potentially, a by-election, but yet again, those in the Scottish National Party hold Scotland to a lower standard and believe that it is one rule for them and another rule for everyone else. While John Swinney spent all his time this week managing...

Scottish Parliament: First Minister’s Question Time: Health and Care Worker Visa Applications (30 May 2024)

John Swinney: I give Clare Haughey that assurance. The question that Clare Haughey puts to me highlights some significant issues. Mr Sarwar completely legitimately raised an issue about national health service waiting times with me today. One of the challenges that we face in the health service is the congestion in our hospitals that is created by delayed discharge. One of the issues with delayed discharge...

Prorogation: His Majesty’s Speech (24 May 2024)

...of living. My Ministers have met their commitment to halve inflation, which is now at its lowest rate since September 2021. My Government has delivered tax cuts for millions of working people, with National Insurance contributions for employees cut by four percentage points, saving a typical employee over £900 a year. National Insurance contributions for the self-employed have also been...

His Majesty’s Most Gracious Speech (24 May 2024)

Lindsay Hoyle: ...of living. My Ministers have met their commitment to halve inflation, which is now at its lowest rate since September 2021. My Government has delivered tax cuts for millions of working people, with National Insurance contributions for employees cut by four percentage points, saving a typical employee over £900 a year.

Valedictory Debate (24 May 2024)

Lucy Powell: ..., I have felt slightly like a gate-crasher at a private party, but I am glad to have been here. Today has shown that all of us in politics know that this is a vocation, not a job. It is a life in service, always in the public eye, and very rarely with an off switch. We have been reminded today, as we often are, that the constituents are the boss, and our families are the bedrock. A huge...

Leasehold and Freehold Reform Bill - Report (and remaining stages): Amendments 54 to 58 (24 May 2024)

...until an event of a specified description occurs—(a) section 20CA(1) does not have effect before the event, but(b) section 20CA(1) does have effect on or after the event in relation to a variable service charge paid or payable before the event.(4) Accordingly, if—(a) a variable service charge was paid before the event, and(b) the landlord’s litigation costs were regarded as relevant...

Leasehold and Freehold Reform Bill - Report (and remaining stages): Amendment 1 (24 May 2024)

Lord Kennedy of Southwark: ...over the past six or seven years. There are things that we have heard repeatedly from the Member for Surrey Heath in the other place, which have been repeated on Sky News, the BBC, ITV and in most national newspapers. I am sure that now, finally—at the last possible chance—all those pledges are here. I am sure that the Minister will confirm to me the promise on ground rents. We heard...
