Group 7: Regulation of smoke and fuel in smoke control areas (Amendments 62, 71, 81, 82) (21 Nov 2023)

Janet Finch-Saunders: Diolch, Llywydd. Amendment 62 would require Welsh Ministers through regulations to provide a list of exempt fireplaces. Having a list brought forward through regulations and discussed here in the Senedd does help us to scrutinise the Welsh Government decisions. It gives us a chance to represent the industry and discuss with them their views. For example, the Stove Industry Alliance are very...

Group 1: Requirement to set air quality targets (Amendments 37, 73, 1, 74, 75, 76, 3, 4, 38, 5, 6, 39, 7, 8, 40, 9, 10, 41, 11, 12, 42, 13, 14, 43, 77, 78, 44, 45, 15, 16, 17, 18, 46, 19, 20, 47, 21, 22, 49, 23, 24, 51, 25, 26, 52, 27, 28, 53, 30, 31, 55, 33, 34, 56, 35, 36, 58, 79) (21 Nov 2023)

Janet Finch-Saunders: Diolch, Llywydd. So, I would first like to place on record my thanks to Mostyn Jones, my researcher; Molly Skates, our group researcher; and also Daniel and the Deputy Minister Lee Waters MS for their work on this important legislation and for taking on board and actually supporting some amendments that we have tabled. So, again, diolch, Llywydd. I will be speaking to all amendments in the...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Electronic Cigarettes (20 Nov 2023)

Preet Kaur Gill: To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, what recent estimate he has made of the number of people who use vapes (a) as an aide to stop smoking cigarettes and (b) who did not previously smoke by (i) age, (ii) gender, (iii) ethnicity, (iv) socio-economic status and (v) integrated care system (A) location and (B) sub-location.

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Electronic Cigarettes: Health Hazards (16 Nov 2023)

Andrea Leadsom: Despite being an effective tool to help adults quit smoking, vaping is not risk free and there are unknown risks on the long-term harms. The Nicotine vaping in England: 2022 evidence update summary report agrees that, while the literature has grown considerably, there is no available evidence related to whether vapes cause respiratory diseases. More information is available at the following...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Smoking: Health Services (16 Nov 2023)

Andrea Leadsom: As of September 2023, 74% of trusts were delivering an inpatient smoking cessation service. As part of the NHS Long Term Plan, it has been agreed that integrated care boards will determine locally when they achieve a 100% level of trusts providing this service.

8. Welsh Conservatives Debate: International Men's Day (15 Nov 2023)

Lynne Neagle: As well as mental health, there are a range of other risk factors, including unemployment, financial strain or insecurity, substance misuse and gambling. As part of our continued efforts to improve our approach, we have commissioned a range of work to support us in identifying the groups of men most at risk to help us target support. This includes a rapid review of evidence by Bangor...

7. Debate on a Member's Legislative Proposal: A Bill to prevent the sale of single-use vapes (15 Nov 2023)

Julie James: Diolch, Dirprwy Lywydd. I'm really grateful to Jenny Rathbone for tabling this debate today. I'm equally concerned by the increased prevalence of single-use vapes, many of which contain nicotine, and it really is distressing to see the increase in use amongst our children and young people. My colleague Lynne Neagle and I have both been considering this issue from our different perspectives,...

2. Questions to the Counsel General and Minister for the Constitution: Tobacco and Vapes Bill (15 Nov 2023)

Mick Antoniw: Thank you for the question, and it’s good to hear that pupils are discussing this, because it is very clear that the growth of vaping has moved away from a substitute for tobacco for smokers who want to give up smoking, and something that is very much being targeted at children. It’s very interesting as well that much of the vape equipment being produced now is in fact being produced by...

1. Questions to the First Minister: Oral Cancer (14 Nov 2023)

Altaf Hussain: Thanks, Jane, for raising this important issue. According to Public Health Wales, the incidence rate for mouth cancer has increased year on year since 2002. Last year, over 100 people died with oral cancer. The BDA states that nine in 10 people survive oral cancer with an early diagnosis. But, with NHS dentistry in tatters, it is—you know, for the detection of cancer, dentists are...

King’s Speech - Debate (4th Day) (13 Nov 2023)

Baroness Penn: I will be happy to write to the noble Baroness. We have launched a nuclear revival. The Government invested to become a shareholder in Sizewell C in November 2022 and launched a capital raise process in September this year to bring in new project finance. We have launched Great British Nuclear to drive the delivery of new nuclear technologies beyond Sizewell and to develop the latest small...

Building an NHS Fit for the Future (13 Nov 2023)

Liz Kendall: It is a real pleasure to close this important debate and to follow my hon. Friends the Members for North Tyneside (Mary Glindon) and for City of Durham (Mary Kelly Foy) who spoke powerfully about the need to take more action to help people quit smoking and not take up smoking in the first place. As a former smoker myself, I wish to goodness that I had never ever taken it up, and I can...

King’s Speech - Debate (3rd Day) ( 9 Nov 2023)

Viscount Younger of Leckie: ...comments made by the noble Baroness, Lady Merron. It is a great honour for me as well to close this debate on His Majesty’s gracious Speech. I also take this opportunity to echo her points, and the points made by other Peers, on anti-Semitism. It was an important point that she made, and we are all very aware of what is going on in that particular area. I also thank noble Lords for...

Making Britain a Clean Energy Superpower ( 9 Nov 2023)

Colleen Fletcher: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Harrow East (Bob Blackman). I agree with some of his comments and the facts on smoking and vaping, and I certainly remember his private Member’s Bill. This is certainly an underwhelming King’s Speech and Government programme. Not surprisingly, it is more notable for what is missing than what is included. Where is the coherent, long-term plan...

King’s Speech - Debate (2nd Day) ( 8 Nov 2023)

Baroness Taylor of Stevenage: My Lords, I add my condolences to the very moving tributes paid to the noble and learned Lord, Lord Judge. I had not been here long enough to know him well, but, from what I have heard today, I am sure that he would want us all to continue to strive for the justice and rule of law that he worked for throughout his life. I send my condolences to his wife and daughters. I congratulate the noble...

Breaking Down Barriers to Opportunity ( 8 Nov 2023)

Richard Drax: Pageantry is one of our country’s greatest strengths, with yesterday’s state opening of Parliament reaffirming our standards and values to the world. I am proud of our royal family, our country and our democracy. It saddens and concerns me that a significant minority do not share my views. Some of them plan to march in London during this Remembrance weekend, which is a time reserved for...

Scottish Parliament: Cashback for Communities ( 8 Nov 2023)

Christine Grahame: F requently, we become so accustomed to the innovative policies that the Parliament has introduced that we forget to reflect on—and, in some circumstances, to celebrate—the impact that they have had on people for the better. Examples include the ban on smoking in public places, no prescription charges in Scotland and, of course, cashback for communities. Although the public will be aware...

Debate on the Address: [1st Day] ( 7 Nov 2023)

Gareth Thomas: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Torbay (Kevin Foster). I join him in welcoming the proposed legislation for further curbs on smoking and for progress on animal welfare issues. I am sure he will not be offended if I part company with him there, as there is a lack of general welcome by the Opposition for the rather thin King’s Speech that we heard today. I wish to concentrate...

King’s Speech - Debate (1st Day): Motion to Adjourn ( 7 Nov 2023)

Baroness Smith of Basildon: .... Last year, when Her Majesty the late Queen was unable to be with us, we were looking forward to her Platinum Jubilee celebrations a few weeks later. Yet before the year was out, a nation and so many across the world were united in grief and respect as we paid tribute to her extraordinary service. We as a House were proud that, at the Coronation of King Charles, colleagues from your...

King’s Speech - Debate (1st Day): Motion for an Humble Address ( 7 Nov 2023)

Lord McInnes of Kilwinning: My Lords, it is of course a great honour and privilege to have been asked to propose the humble Address to His Majesty this afternoon. It was with a sense of trepidation that my noble friend Lady Stedman-Scott and I approached the Chief Whips’ Office, having been asked to come and see the Chief Whip for what had euphemistically been described as “a chat”. We left knowing we had been...

Ultra-processed Food - Question (26 Oct 2023)

Lord Deben: My Lords, I will ask a very simple question. Was it not true that, before we had the link between smoking and lung cancer, we did have evidence of an epidemiological connection? The problem here is that we have no direct link, but it does seem that there is a connection that we do not yet know is causal. Will the department be very careful not to ignore that evidence simply because it is very...
