Elections Bill - Second Reading (23 Feb 2022)

Lord Shipley: ...have been keen to cite Medici Florence as an example to emulate. I can think of several very good reasons why this might be a problem, so I suggest that the Government consider instead the Basque Country and its success in regeneration, which results from very full devolution of responsibilities and decision-making involving private and public sectors working together, and with...

6. Statement by the Minister for Economy: Wales and Europe — Managing a new relationship ( 1 Feb 2022)

Vaughan Gething: ...keen to maintain direct relationships with regional Governments within Europe. I've spoken to regional Governments within the Netherlands and I've also spoken with the regional Government of the Basque Country recently as well to make clear that we still want to carry on the good relationships we had and the trading opportunities, and to make sure that we can share information, share...

Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill - Committee (10th Day): Amendment 280 (22 Nov 2021)

Baroness Coussins: ...Status protocols”. The reason for this is that there are some languages that are not yet covered by the DPSI level 6 but are, nevertheless, sometimes in demand in our courts. Examples include Basque, Moldovan, Sinhalese and Yoruba. In these and similar circumstances, the National Register of PSIs has a matrix of competences and experience which, if met, would still guarantee the level of...

5. Statement by the Minister for Economy: A greener economy ( 2 Nov 2021)

Luke Fletcher: ...one. And on steel, if I could, what consideration has the Government given to steel co-operatives and the role that they could play in a greener, fairer economy, similar to what we have seen in the Basque Country? Finally, the Minister is no doubt aware what my position is when it comes to tackling climate change. For me, tackling the climate emergency through transitioning to a green...

7. Debate on a Member's Legislative Proposal: An employee ownership Bill (20 Oct 2021)

Luke Fletcher: ...business they worked for if that business and their livelihoods were under threat. But Italy isn't the only example of where worker co-operatives have brought economic prosperity. Just look at the Basque Country, which was in the same position we find ourselves in today. The Basque Country had a long history of being the scene of industry, especially steel making, but most workers were...

Nationality and Borders Bill: [2nd Allocated Day] (20 Jul 2021)

Kenny MacAskill: ...that, I believe, not only do we hold in Scotland but are replicated across Great Britain and Northern Ireland. People have come to this country—the Huguenot French, the Jews fleeing the pogroms, Basque children escaping Franco’s atrocities. They have come here, they have been welcomed and we are proud of that. It is something England and Wales are right to be proud of. Scotland has its...

6. Plaid Cymru Debate: The Senedd's powers ( 9 Jun 2021)

Heledd Fychan: I'd like to focus my contribution to this debate on the need to devolve broadcasting. This is an area that is devolved in other devolved nations, such as the Basque Country and Catalunya, and the powers have been used for the benefit of their languages. The cross-party committee of the Silk commission, set up by the British Government itself, together with an opinion poll conducted by YouGov...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (3rd Day) (13 May 2021)

Lord Elder: ...for encouraging bits of countries, even former member countries, to join separately. There are an awful lot of bits of European countries with histories as long as Scotland’s: Catalonia, the Basque country and lots of Italy and other places, which would really quite like to be there as separate states. For that reason, Europe’s enthusiasm for accepting Scotland as a separate state will...

7. Statement by the Deputy Minister for Economy and Transport: The Foundational Economy (23 Feb 2021)

Lee Waters: .... So, I'm not sure which one of the dozen Russell George really wants me to answer, because I can't answer them all. So, let me try and give an answer in the round. He rightly quoted me using the Basque phrase of 'building the road as we travel'. I'd originally road tested a more flippant version—that we were 'making it up as we went', which I now understand has featured in Russell...

1. Questions to the First Minister: International Priorities ( 9 Feb 2021)

Mark Drakeford: ...such an important part in all of that. I expect that to be part of the rest of this calendar year as well. In the last couple of months, I have met ambassadors from Japan, the President of the Basque Country, the ambassador from Germany, I met the foreign and defence Minister of the Republic of Ireland, I am to meet the New Zealand high commissioner tomorrow—all of these contacts...

2. Questions to the Counsel General and Minister for European Transition (in respect of his European Transition responsibilities): The Welsh Government's Relationship with the European Union ( 9 Dec 2020)

Jeremy Miles: ...contacts, both at a member state level, a parliamentary level, but also at a regional level. And he will know from the international strategy that engagement at a regional level with Brittany, the Basque Country and Flanders in particular is an essential part of our important network of communications across the European Union into the future.

Scottish Parliament: Declaration of a Nature Emergency (18 Nov 2020)

Gillian Martin: ...of the UK Government is extremely worrying. My final word is on just transition. Last Friday, I represented Scotland on a panel on the green recovery that was hosted by the Bildu party of the Basque Country. My fellow panellists were from Ireland, Sweden, Finland and Denmark, all of which are small EU member states. The other panellists made much mention of the EU’s just transition fund,...

13. Debate: The Report of the Elections Planning Group (17 Nov 2020)

Adam Price: ...take place safely. I do have to say that it's difficult to anticipate a situation where Senedd elections would have to be postponed. Elections around the world have taken place from Belarus to the Basque Country, from Serbia to Singapore, and also in the United States most recently, where we were reminded in powerful terms of the importance of free elections and the power of people to...

1. Questions to the First Minister: Questions Without Notice from the Party Leaders (17 Nov 2020)

Mark Drakeford: ...a week in Mondragon, while a Member of this Senedd, and saw the fantastic work that has been achieved there. I think I said last week, Llywydd, that I'd received a letter from the President of the Basque Country that day, inviting Welsh Ministers to further discussions with the Basque Government about mutual ways in which we can learn from one another and help one another. But on the...

3. Statement by the First Minister: Delivering the International Strategy (11 Nov 2020)

Mark Drakeford: It was remiss of me not to mention the language in relation to the Basque Country, because some of our longest standing relationships with that country come from the help that Wales gave to the emerging Basque nation, after the death of Franco, in language planning. Now, in some ways, you could argue they've had more success in some aspects since in the revival of the Basque language. But I...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Honouring the EU Withdrawal Agreement Protocol (21 Sep 2020)

Gerry Carroll: ...has been partition. The renewed argument for democratic self-determination is not unique to the North. We have seen emerging conversations around national governance in Scotland, Catalonia, the Basque Country, Quebec and many other places. Westminster and the EU have set their face against these democratic movements. The vision of a new Ireland, a socialist Ireland, rejecting the...

5. Statement by the Minister for International Relations and Welsh Language: Coronavirus (COVID-19) ( 6 May 2020)

Baroness Mair Eluned Morgan: ...being provided by our international offices is proving invaluable to give us ideas of how it's being done elsewhere, and I've had direct discussions with my counterparts in Brittany and the Basque Country to learn from their experiences.   Now, Wales and Africa groups across Wales are expressing huge concern for their partners in Africa. The lockdown there is having a devastating impact...

3. Statement by the Minister for Health and Social Services: Coronavirus (COVID-19) ( 1 Apr 2020)

Adam Price: ...idea of the number of total people that currently you're advising require PPE? It would be interesting to see, if you have figures, just to have some sense of that. I noticed that, just today, the Basque co-operative Mondragon has just announced a new production line to manufacture 0.5 million masks a day. Will you be approaching Welsh manufacturers to see whether we could manage the same...

4. Questions to the Assembly Commission: Flags on the Assembly Estate (11 Mar 2020)

Huw Irranca-Davies: Thank you, Deputy Presiding Officer. My request would be, knowing that we have an international strategy now that is looking at our links with other regions that have Celtic connections—the Basque Country, Catalonia, et cetera—whether or not we can indeed look at periodically, actually, flying, as we have today, those flags on a much more regular basis, and echoing what Neil Hamilton has...

5. Debate on the External Affairs and Additional Legislation Committee report: The Welsh Government's Draft International Strategy ( 4 Mar 2020)

Baroness Mair Eluned Morgan: ...suggested. In the strategy, I have identified a number of specific regions where we will focus, where we'll formalise or build on the formal relationships that we already have. You'll know that the Basque country is already one of those areas where we've signed a memorandum of understanding. We have regular contact with the Basque Government, and we've focused on innovation, health and...
