Other Proceedings: Welsh Affairs (19 Mar 2018)

Jo Stevens: ...the number of Ministers in the Wales Office, which is a clear illustration of their lack of interest in Wales.

It is a dangerous Bill that offers two power grabs by the Executive for the price of one:...

Queen’s Speech: Implications for Wales — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (19 Jul 2017)

Jo Stevens: ...point. I do not think there is any trust in what the Government are trying to do with the repeal Bill.

Leaving the EU must not mean throwing away the decades of positive...

Queen’s Speech: Implications for Wales — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (19 Jul 2017)

The repeal Bill published last week...

The Secretary of State Was Asked: Leaving the EU (30 Nov 2016)

Jo Stevens: .... Those jobs are vital to the local community and to the supply chain in Wales, but we are still concerned about the lack of commitment post-2020.
