5. 90-second Statements (22 May 2024)

Rhys ab Owen: ...canvassing. With a majority of less than 7,000, I'm sure the fact that they spoke to 45,000 people was crucial in the success of that referendum. On the day of his death, his friend Geraint Davies, former Assembly Member for Rhondda, phoned me. He said how much practical support my father gave him during the 1999 election, although electing Geraint was likely to mean that my father...

2. Questions to the Counsel General: Deposit-return Scheme (21 May 2024)

Rhys ab Owen: Diolch, Cwnsler Cyffredinol. I agree with you and agree with what Huw Irranca-Davies wrote last month in his written statement that this is another example of misuse of the internal market Act by the Westminster Government. Devolution should allow us to explore new ideas, but the UK Government doesn’t seem to share this aspiration for Wales. Instead, something as simple as including glass...

5. Debate on the Culture, Communications, Welsh Language, Sport and International Relations Committee Report, 'International Relations: Annual Report 2022-23' (28 Feb 2024)

Rhys ab Owen: ...'t very high internationally. But this has changed entirely. You can travel all over the world now and people will be aware of Wales, primarily due to the success of our sporting teams.  As Alun Davies has given a plug to Tredegar in Virginia, may I also give a plug? It was wonderful for me to be in Cardiff, Maryland, at the end of January, and talking in Welsh to people who've never been...

5. Debate on the Legislation, Justice and Constitution Committee Report, 'Inquiry into UK-EU governance' (21 Feb 2024)

Huw Irranca-Davies: ...m afraid. Delyth, I welcome your support for a fuller role at the PPA, a fuller role for Welsh Government on the TCA matters, echoing some of our reports from your role as committee Chair. And from Rhys ab Owen as well, the importance of civil society engaging, and Rhys as well making sure that it is resourced properly as well. And the Counsel General made that point. We need the UK...

15. Short Debate: Heart Failure — Innovation is saving lives (31 Jan 2024)

Sarah Murphy: Thank you very much, Alun Davies. It brings me on, really, to the next section I want to discuss, which is treatment. Guideline-directed medical therapies, known as the four pillars of treatment, can help to reduce mortality, improve quality of life, and reduce the risk of hospital admission due to breathlessness and fluid retention. And these benefits can be seen as early as 14 days after...

7. Legislative Consent Motion on the Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill (17 Oct 2023)

Rhys ab Owen: ...regarding the LCM process; we've heard many of them stated again this afternoon, and the Chair of LJC and Adam Price have eloquently set out the scrutiny deficit surrounding this LCM. Unlike Alun Davies, I'll be speaking against and voting against this LCM, but I will start on a positive note. I was very pleased that the Minister has managed to amend the Bill so that Wales is not bound to...

6. Member Debate under Standing Order 11.21(iv) — Full devolution of water (27 Sep 2023)

Rhys ab Owen: ...I accept the view that, of course, things cannot be done overnight; however, this has been discussed since 2017, and a timetable would be very helpful with regard to the transfer plans. David T.C. Davies, the Secretary of State, said in 2021, ‘when it comes to dealing with the impact of pollution on the quality of our rivers...devolution is making matters more complicated.’ Devolution...

11. Plaid Cymru Debate: The Crown Estate (12 Jul 2023)

Rhys ab Owen: ...electricity grid of our own, and it is therefore difficult to look at electricity policy within Wales on a holistic basis. In 2022, the then Under-Secretary of State for Wales, David T.C. Davies, said that he would look with interest at Liz Saville-Roberts’s Crown Estate (Devolution to Wales) Bill, but now, when he sits around the UK Cabinet table, where he could make the case for...

9. Debate on the Legislation, Justice and Constitution Committee Report — Common Frameworks (12 Jul 2023)

Huw Irranca-Davies: ...from Welsh Government in due course. In the interim, all of our committees will continue to scrutinise the operation of these frameworks. Can I thank James Evans, Peredur and former LJC member, Rhys ab Owen, for their contributions, and, of course, my fellow Chair Mark Isherwood as well? It shows the diligence that we are applying to this, and my thanks to all committees and their teams...

5. Debate on a Member's Legislative Proposal — A civic duty to vote Bill (28 Jun 2023)

Rhys ab Owen: ...uneasy about the civic duty to vote, but bear this in mind: you might fear losing out in elections, you might fear losing votes, but just remember, at every Senedd election, your leader Andrew R.T. Davies talks about the need for your voters in Westminster elections to turn out and vote in Senedd elections. That doesn't happen for you at the moment; you don't inspire your Westminster...

5. Statement by the Counsel General and Minister for the Constitution: Tribunal reform and Wales’s evolving justice landscape (27 Jun 2023)

Alun Davies: ...in order to start the work of devolving or preparation for the devolving of particularly youth justice and probation—the areas that he has focused on this afternoon. But also, in his answer to Rhys ab Owen, be began also, I felt, to chart a course for the future in terms of the wider devolution of policing and justice. And I share with him the agreement on the principle of any subject...

9. Plaid Cymru Debate: Devolution of justice and policing (21 Jun 2023)

Rhys ab Owen: ...no strong arguments against it, just that the jurisdiction of England and Wales had worked well for centuries and it should continue. Well, as we've already heard, that's just not true.  As Alun Davies and Mike Hedges said, I cannot see the logic of any unionist who professes to be in favour of devolution opposing the devolution of justice. It would create a proportional system throughout...

5. Member Debate under Standing Order 11.21(iv) — Warm This Winter campaign (14 Jun 2023)

Motion NDM8275 Hefin David, Jack Sargeant, Jane Dodds Supported by Alun Davies (Blaenau Gwent), Carolyn Thomas, Delyth Jewell, Heledd Fychan, Huw Irranca-Davies, Jenny Rathbone, John Griffiths, Joyce Watson, Mike Hedges, Rhianon Passmore, Rhys ab Owen, Sioned Williams, Vikki Howells To propose that the Senedd: 1. Notes that Wales and the rest of the United Kingdom are in the grips of multiple...

5. Debate on the Climate Change, Environment, and Infrastructure Committee Report — 'The Welsh Government’s EV charging infrastructure strategy and action plan' ( 7 Jun 2023)

Rhys ab Owen: ...charge of 52p a day per household. But, in Rhondda Cynon Taf, the proposals for a charge was 35p per kWh when the public charging stations are up and running. It's fair to say that, as Huw Irranca-Davies mentioned, there's a real issue here about discriminating against residents of terraced housing and discouraging the use of EVs by members of the community. We must ensure that there isn't...

6. Debate on a Member's Legislative Proposal — High-rise building safety (17 May 2023)

Motion NDM8230 Janet Finch-Saunders, Jane Dodds, Rhys ab Owen Supported by Gareth Davies, Joel James, Natasha Asghar To propose that the Senedd:  1. Notes a proposal for a Bill to ensure that high-rise building developers are responsible for safety issues.  2. Notes that the purpose of this Bill would be to:  a) create a duty on developers to refund leaseholders for reasonable costs...

7. Debate on the Petitions Committee Report — 'From Five to Four? P-06-1247 Support trials of a four-day week in Wales' (10 May 2023)

Alun Davies: I'm grateful to you, Deputy Presiding Officer. It's always a pleasure to follow on from Rhys ab Owen, and the arguments that he was making. I think it's important—I don't often contribute to many of these debates on a Wednesday afternoon—but I think it's important that we actually use this opportunity to share some experience and to share what we have found in our lives and the experience...

13. Legislative Consent Motion on the Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill (28 Mar 2023)

Mick Antoniw: ..., it is giving authoritarian powers to UK Government Ministers, and, indeed, to Welsh Ministers, and that has got to be unacceptable. It is certainly not taking back control. This is what David Davis, Brexit campaigner and former Brexit Secretary, said: 'we are being asked to sign a blank cheque—one might almost say a pig in a poke—because we do not even know how many pieces of...

9. Short Debate: Fire safety in high-rise flats: A clear timetable for remediation for residents (22 Mar 2023)

Rhys ab Owen: ...long-lasting effect that that catastrophe had on her father. She believed her father died an early death because of issues relating to post-traumatic stress disorder. The late historian, Dr John Davies, told me after a lecture once that the dry dock where this Senedd is built was filled by slag heap from the Aberfan disaster. And that is incredible, isn't it, that the foundations of Welsh...

5. Member Debate under Standing Order 11.21(iv): Prepayment meters and energy advice services (22 Mar 2023)

Motion NDM8219 Jack Sargeant Supported by Alun Davies, Carolyn Thomas, Delyth Jewell, Heledd Fychan, Jane Dodds, Jayne Bryant, Joyce Watson, Llyr Gruffydd, Luke Fletcher, Mike Hedges, Peredur Owen Griffiths, Rhianon Passmore, Rhys ab Owen, Sarah Murphy, Sioned Williams, Vikki HowellsTo propose that the Senedd: 1.
