Points of Order (13 Jul 2022)

Stephen Kinnock: Further to that excellent point of order, Madam Deputy Speaker. You will, I am sure, agree that Select Committees play a crucial role in this place in holding the Government to account, and our ability to do so depends on those Committees.

Stephen Kinnock: It is a real pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Ceredigion (Ben Lake), and I congratulate the right hon. Member for Preseli Pembrokeshire (Stephen Crabb) on securing this important debate.

Department for Work and Pensions: Support for the Welsh Economy and Funding for the Devolved Institutions (5 Jul 2022)

Stephen Kinnock: Perhaps if the UK Government had a proper industrial strategy that would grow our manufacturing base, rather than having allowed it to go to the wall since 2010, we would be creating high-paid jobs and adding value to our economy and productivity.

It has become clear that when providing a replacement for EU farm...

Department for Work and Pensions: Support for the Welsh Economy and Funding for the Devolved Institutions (5 Jul 2022)

Stephen Kinnock: I am interested in the hon. Gentleman’s comparison with Germany. Does he agree that one secret of the German success is a radical devolution model, held together in a federal state—but very much together? It is interesting that he is making the case for the German model, which is based, by definition, on a federal state, not on separating. If the German Länder had separated from each...
