Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Welsh Language (8 Mar 2017)

Guto Bebb: I was delighted that, on St David’s day, the House resolved that the use of Welsh be permitted in parliamentary proceedings of Select Committees and of the Welsh Grand Committee held in both Wales and here at Westminster. That is just one example of the work that we are doing to promote the Welsh language throughout the UK.

The Secretary of State Was Asked: Prison Estate (30 Nov 2016)

Guto Bebb: ...the hon. Lady welcomes the fact that the prison in Wrexham is being built, as it is a significant investment in north-east Wales and a significant opportunity for the north Wales economy. On the Welsh language issue, it is fair to say that the Department responsible has made it clear that the number of jobs being created at Wrexham will reflect the demographic realities in north Wales,...

Wales Bill: Apprenticeship levy (12 Sep 2016)

Guto Bebb: ...to the energy and environment provisions in the Bill; I will discuss those first. Clause 36 delivers the St David’s Day agreement on the devolution of energy consents, giving the Assembly and Welsh Ministers a substantially greater degree of autonomy in determining the shape of devolved energy policy in Wales. We implemented the decentralisation of consenting responsibilities for all...

Wales Bill: Establishment of Two Distinct Jurisdictions (12 Sep 2016)

Guto Bebb: I suspect that I can offer clarity and reassurance on this issue. There is nothing in the Bill that will affect the Welsh language retrospectively. For example, any standards imposed on a public body as a result of the Welsh Language (Wales) Measure 2011 will still be imposed by the Welsh Language Commissioner, with no effect as a result of changes in this Bill. If a future Welsh Language...

Gwynfor Evans and Welsh Politics (5 Jul 2016)

Guto Bebb: ...success is not necessarily measured in election success. I think I am right in saying that Gwynfor won only two elections in his entire career, but his contribution is much greater than that of many other Welsh MPs who won many more. It is important to highlight Gwynfor’s political career, but the influence of that career relates not to the fact that he was elected to this place but...

Wales Bill (14 Jun 2016)

Guto Bebb: ...for devolution over the years. I am quite certain that most of those Labour Members would have been very supportive of this Wales Bill. I can offer my sympathetic support to the argument that the Welsh Grand Committee should be able to use the Welsh language, but as a Back Bencher I was not a very keen attendee of that Committee, so it might not be a power that I would use. This has been...

Macur Review of Historical Child Abuse (22 Mar 2016)

Guto Bebb: ...It is acknowledged that the records management has been poor. It was not to anybody’s satisfaction and it is fair to say that lessons have been learnt by the Wales Office, and I presume that the Welsh Assembly will take some of the report’s advice on records retention very seriously. However, it is fair to state that Lady Justice Macur is clear that she received “the...

Backbench Business — Gangs and Serious Youth Violence: Welsh Affairs (3 Mar 2016)

Nia Griffith: ...of staying in the EU, particularly for the success of big companies such as Airbus, as well as a host of other companies in his constituency and over the border. The hon. Member for Aberconwy (Guto Bebb) reminded us that Gordon Brown was right in keeping the UK out of the euro, and the hon. Member for Carmarthen East and Dinefwr (Jonathan Edwards) made a strong case for the EU,...

Media Plurality (Wales) — [Mr Christopher Chope in the Chair] (13 Oct 2015)

Alun Cairns: It is a pleasure to serve once again under your chairmanship, Mr Chope. I welcome this debate on an important issue, and pay tribute to my hon. Friend the Member for Aberconwy (Guto Bebb), who has shown an interest in the subject for many years since he came to the House. He is a champion of plurality, S4C, the Welsh language and news consumption, which are matters I want to return to. I...

Anti-Semitism — [Mrs Anne Main in the Chair] (9 Dec 2014)

Guto Bebb: ...figures is that the Jewish population in the United Kingdom are being equated, in the minds of many people who feel strongly about that issue, with the state of Israel. It is important to challenge the language used in that context. If such language gives rise to attacks on Jewish cemeteries and individuals in various parts of this country, there is something wrong with the rhetoric being...

Dairy Industry — [Mrs Linda Riordan in the Chair] (5 Nov 2014)

Guto Bebb: ...and rural communities. In my part of north Wales, the fact that the average herd has gone from 40 to 125 cows means that there are fewer family farms, and there has been a direct impact on the Welsh language and Welsh communities as a result, so the issue is not just economic but cultural in our part of Wales. I want to pick up the point about a price of 99p for 4 pints of milk. I was once...

UK Media (Welsh Rugby) (8 Jul 2014)

Guto Bebb: The Minister rightly alludes to the battles fought over the S4C budget. That is directly related to the fact that, for 30 years, S4C has been very innovative in its coverage of Welsh rugby, including in how it has extended the hand of friendship over the border into England by allowing people to choose their preferred language via the red button.

[Mr Graham Brady in the Chair] — S4C and Welsh Identity (7 May 2014)

Ed Vaizey: Hear, hear to that. May I add my tribute to all the Welsh titans mentioned by the hon. Member for Ynys Môn? Of course, Lord Roberts was the predecessor of my hon. Friend the Member for Aberconwy (Guto Bebb), who is widely acknowledged as a great mover in this debate. Before I move on to the meat of my speech—the debate is becoming an extended tribute session—I should also...
