Informal European Council: Joint Ministerial Committee (EU Negotiations) (6 Feb 2017)

Susan Elan Jones: We have already spoken about the validity of the devolved Administrations in issues relating to the European Union. Does the hon. Gentleman not respect the existence of the devolved Administrations, elected as they were by referendum? Does he not recognise that new clause 4 is a very moderate clause, and that consensus should be sought? Why are the Government seeking to oppose it?

Child Poverty in the Uk (Target for Reduction) Bill (3 Feb 2017)

Susan Elan Jones: Does my hon. Friend agree that a growing problem in our country is poverty among children whose parents are working? That is a real fear for many people.

Civil Society Space — [Mr Andrew Turner in the Chair] (26 Jan 2017)

Susan Elan Jones: It is a great pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Turner. I pay tribute to the hon. Member for Strangford (Jim Shannon) for proposing the debate. We all know that he is a tireless and relentless campaigner on these issues. It is a great pleasure to take part in this debate, and to follow him and the hon. Members for Congleton (Fiona Bruce) and for Glasgow East (Natalie McGarry). It...

Civil Society Space — [Mr Andrew Turner in the Chair] (26 Jan 2017)

Susan Elan Jones: Probably. The tradition of civil society and openness goes hand in hand with the development of charity in our country. It is fascinating that freedom of thought happened at the same time as freedom of action. That is very important for us to consider today. I want to move on a few centuries and pay tribute to the work of the Charities Aid Foundation, which, as we know, provides great...

Civil Society Space — [Mr Andrew Turner in the Chair] (26 Jan 2017)

Susan Elan Jones: I wholeheartedly agree with the hon. Lady on that point. We also need to reflect on the demonisation of migrants, which in some cases seems to have dropped into common parlance. Let us remember that, in our country—I think it was in the early 1970s—there was a case that resulted in Sikh bus drivers being allowed to wear turbans. Let us remember how long ago that was and remember...

Wales Bill: Permanence of the National Assembly for Wales and Welsh Government (24 Jan 2017)

Susan Elan Jones: I support Labour’s amendment (a) to Lords amendment 36, which would reduce the relevant stake for fixed odds betting terminals to £2. I welcome the review that is being carried out by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport, and I also welcome the move to devolve this power to the Welsh Assembly. My reason for doing so is very much in line with all the work that has been done...

Wales Bill: Transferred Ministerial functions (24 Jan 2017)

Susan Elan Jones: As much as two words can ever encapsulate a feeling or a sense, the two words “Cofiwch Dryweryn”—“Remember Tryweryn”—probably do so. I hope that we will not look back at this year and think of another four words, “Cofiwch Dwr Dyffryn Dyfrdwy” —“Remember Dee Valley Water”—as encapsulating the spirit of our age. My hon....

Wales Bill: Lending for capital expenditure (24 Jan 2017)

Susan Elan Jones: Will the Secretary of State give way?

Article 50 (24 Jan 2017)

Susan Elan Jones: The Secretary of State has spoken a great deal about listening to the devolved nations, but will he listen to what they have to say about the importance of unfettered access to the single market?

Public Bill Committee: National Citizen Service Bill [Lords]: Annual report etc (24 Jan 2017)

Susan Elan Jones: May I ask the Minister the question that Charities Aid Foundation asked about young trustees between the ages of 18 and 24? I would have thought that it was relatively easy to find out who those young trustees are and match them with the names of people who have participated in the National Citizen Service. Is it possible to monitor that at all?

S4C (18 Jan 2017)

Susan Elan Jones: I congratulate the hon. Gentleman on securing the debate. DCMS funding is now only 8% of S4C’s funding; does he agree that people in Wales, Welsh-speaking or not, pay taxes too and that any further cut would be totally unacceptable to us?

Bill Presented: National Citizen Service Bill [Lords] (16 Jan 2017)

Susan Elan Jones: It is a great pleasure to speak in this debate and to follow the hon. Member for Crawley (Henry Smith). It has been heartening to hear widespread praise for the National Citizen Service and I want to join in that praise—it is an excellent scheme. The Secretary of State mentioned that it operates in England and in Northern Ireland, but I want to put on the record my praise for the...

HMRC Estate (10 Jan 2017)

Susan Elan Jones: I think that the Minister would be outraged if people living in villages, towns and small cities all suddenly stopped paying tax, yet suddenly our civil service is being centralised in a few cities. Please will she reconsider these points? This is totally outrageous for people in north Wales.

Domestic Violence Victims: Cross-Examination (9 Jan 2017)

Susan Elan Jones: Everyone who has spoken today, including the Minister, has said the situation is urgent. In view of that and the fact that he said primary legislation will be needed, is there any reason why he cannot commit to the Government presenting that within three or four months?

Road Safety: Sentencing Review — [Mr Adrian Bailey in the Chair] (30 Nov 2016)

Susan Elan Jones: I hope that the review comes soon, because people have been waiting for it for a very long time. Question put and agreed to.

Road Safety: Sentencing Review — [Mr Adrian Bailey in the Chair] (30 Nov 2016)

Susan Elan Jones: I am rather perplexed. The Minister is not providing total support for the existing guidelines. We are all very much under the impression that the Government want the sentencing guidelines to be reviewed. Can we have absolute clarity that they will be reviewed, and may we have a timescale for that?

Road Safety: Sentencing Review — [Mr Adrian Bailey in the Chair] (30 Nov 2016)

Susan Elan Jones: It is again a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Bailey. In January 2014, I raised the issue of the need for a sentencing review for maximum penalties for driving offences that lead to death or serious injury. Many Members of Parliament stood with me and explained why the issue mattered to their constituents and why the review is so desperately needed. Let me begin by talking about...

Road Safety: Sentencing Review — [Mr Adrian Bailey in the Chair] (30 Nov 2016)

Susan Elan Jones: I agree totally. That shows that this is a cross-party issue that affects communities across the country. That driver served only 10 months in jail. Clearly, that cannot be right. Almost two years ago, I asked the Government to reconsider the arrangements for sentencing. Currently, those who cause death by driving in the way I have described face a number of charges and a wide scale of...

Road Safety: Sentencing Review — [Mr Adrian Bailey in the Chair] (30 Nov 2016)

Susan Elan Jones: I agree wholeheartedly with my hon. Friend. Again, that highlights the point about diversity —she represents an urban constituency, mine is predominantly rural. These issues occur absolutely everywhere. The average sentence served by a driver who kills or seriously injures another human being while driving is, believe it or not, only 11 months. Families are losing loved ones because of...

Road Safety: Sentencing Review — [Mr Adrian Bailey in the Chair] (30 Nov 2016)

Susan Elan Jones: indicated assent.
