6. Plaid Cymru Debate: Devolved powers and funding (10 Jul 2024)

James Evans: ...after more. I think that if we're going to strengthen devolution here in Wales, we need to give people out there faith that the powers that we currently have are being used properly in terms of education, health, economic development and other areas that the Welsh Government has control over. The motion also calls for the devolution of the powers of the Crown Estate and its assets to...

Delyth Jewell: ...this report, to ensure the protections are there for the hospitality industry as a plan B, and we were united as a committee in support of that. Long live Gilfach workmen's club. Had I mitched off school in lunch hour when I was in sixth form, that would have been my local, but I was obviously far too sensible for that all the time, so I'm happy to put that on the record. But no, long...

Hannah Blythyn: ...language examination, and this summer, I have a workbook that I’ll be using. I’m learning Welsh because I’d like to use more Welsh, both in the Chamber and in the community too. When I was in school in Flint, I studied Welsh but never took examinations. I restarted learning when I was living in London. My father’s family are from the Ffynnongroyw area, which is currently in my...

2. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Education: Eco-Schools (10 Jul 2024)

Lynne Neagle: ...s commitment to leaving our planet in a better condition for future generations. I was lucky enough recently to experience this first-hand from the young people from some Mid and West Wales primary schools that Eluned Morgan had invited in for her Climate Challenge Cymru Earthshot event. I was blown away by how engaged the children were. I think, as adults, we can all learn a lot from them...

2. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Education: Mental Health Support in Schools (10 Jul 2024)

Lynne Neagle: having. I'm sure you recognise that mental health is a top priority for me and for the Government. That's why, despite our financial constraints, we've continued to protect funding for our whole-school approach for mental health, which we are investing around £13 million in this year. The Minister for Mental Health and Early Years and I are continuing to drive progress on that.  I do...

2. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Education: Statutory School Uniform Policies (10 Jul 2024)

Lynne Neagle: Thank you, Heledd. Well, the guidance is statutory already, so schools and governing bodies do have to have regard to the guidance. The amended statutory guidance states that branded uniform, including the use of logos, should not be a compulsory requirement for pupils. It also includes the advice that schools shouldn't have single-supplier arrangements with particular contractors. I have...

2. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Education: The Twenty-first Century Schools Programme (10 Jul 2024)

Lynne Neagle: Thank you, Jenny, and it's great to hear about the positive work that you described at Albany school. The sustainable communities for learning programme supports a wide range of projects and is about more than providing new-build schools, and we have delivered major refurbishment projects to improve existing facilities, particularly where there's limited opportunity to rebuild. The programme...

2. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Education: Additional Learning Needs (10 Jul 2024)

Lynne Neagle: Thank you very much, Llyr. Just to start by saying that children and young people should not need a diagnosis to receive additional learning provision. We've been very clear with schools and local authorities about that. We've also invested very heavily in our implementation of ALN, which is still an ongoing process. There are still children transferring from the former special educational...

2. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Education: Teacher Redundancies (10 Jul 2024)

Lynne Neagle: Thank you, Mabon. You'll be aware that the decision by Aberystwyth University to withdraw from initial teacher education was following the independent process that is undertaken for us by the Education Workforce Council. That's not something that we do in the Government, and Aberystwyth University decided not to appeal against that. Our efforts were focused then on trying to support the...

2. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Education: Questions Without Notice from Party Spokespeople (10 Jul 2024)

Lynne Neagle: ...we are facing, we are doing our utmost to support our university sector. I think it's also important to remember that post 16 is not just about universities, and this is also about our further education and making sure that we hold on to those children and young people, as well. We've got Medr coming onstream now. That gives us an opportunity to have a more strategic approach across the...

2. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Education: Holiday Clubs (10 Jul 2024)

Lynne Neagle: The safeguarding of young people is of paramount importance to the Welsh Government. Every school must demonstrate effective safeguarding policies, procedures and practice. When commissioning activities from another organisation, or allowing them to use premises, schools should ensure that providers have robust mechanisms in place to protect children from harm.

2. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Education: Musical Instruments (10 Jul 2024)

Lynne Neagle: ...into this budget round with a £1.3 billion shortfall. That has had implications. That was out of our control, because it was due to the lack of investment by Westminster. The budget in Wales for education is still £700 million less than we would expect it to be. So, there does have to be a recognition of the really difficult financial issues we’re grappling with across the Government.

1. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Housing, Local Government and Planning: Housing Needs of Tenants (10 Jul 2024)

Rebecca Evans: I think there are two important things that come into play here. Firstly, in that kind of placemaking approach, which I referred to in respect of the second question this afternoon, which related to how we ensure that our town centres are suitable and accessible for disabled people, the same should apply for all of our communities, to have that kind of placemaking approach, to ensure that...

1. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Housing, Local Government and Planning: Housing Priorities (10 Jul 2024)

Julie Morgan: .... In Cardiff North, a hotel was opened to homeless families last year. This has been full and at capacity since it opened, and this has got all the difficulties of children having to travel to schools all over Cardiff, trying to keep local links where we hope they will eventually be rehoused. Can the Cabinet Secretary suggest any more ways of boosting the supply of social housing in Wales?...

1. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Housing, Local Government and Planning: Housing Targets (10 Jul 2024)

Rebecca Evans: ...delivered by registered social landlords in the same year.  So, as a Government, we absolutely recognise that good-quality affordable housing can positively impact on health, mental health, education, and that's why we've never moved away from our support for the most affordable housing, which is social rent, and that's in stark contrast to England where the delivery of homes for social...

3. Statement by the First Minister: The Legislative Programme ( 9 Jul 2024)

James Evans: First Minister, thank you for statement today. During time on the Children, Young People and Education Committee, I was truly privileged to meet so many young people across Wales, especially those children who were care experienced, and it’s very good to hear people across the Chamber today mention our care-experienced children and the work the Government’s doing in this area. In the...
