Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Independent Commission for Reconciliation and Information Recovery (17 Jun 2024)

Naomi Long: ...the repeal of the legislation, and I have been clear that that is what, I believe, should happen. We have to look at what has been suggested by Labour Party statements in the round. While Sir Keir Starmer has pledged to repeal the Act if there is a Labour Government following the general election on 4 July, the shadow Secretary of State for Northern Ireland, Hilary Benn, speaking on 'Good...

Scottish Parliament: Public Service Investment (13 Jun 2024)

Neil Gray: It took less than 24 hours for Keir Starmer to torpedo it. Last night, he shamefully admitted that there would be continued austerity for families in poverty under Labour, which would not scrap the two-child cap. While we know who will be taking the decisions—and Labour has told us what it will do, as Michelle Thomson highlighted—the problem for Labour is that it can no longer...

7. Welsh Conservatives Debate: Economic policy (12 Jun 2024)

Janet Finch-Saunders: more taxation from Labour both at UK level and Welsh Government, and, in particular, they will go for our businesses more, because, too often, they see our businesses as a soft option. Sir Keir Starmer's openly touted that his blueprint for a UK Labour Government is Wales. Well, that's a pretty sad indictment if he's actually looking to the Welsh Government as being an example to copy....

6. Debate on the Equality and Social Justice Committee Report, 'Actions, not words: towards an anti-racist Wales by 2030' (12 Jun 2024)

Sioned Williams: ...and support this essential research, and ask for a commitment from the new Cabinet Secretary, with a change in Government more than likely by July, as to the case that she will be making to Keir Starmer on ensuring that policing and justice powers are devolved. Do you agree that the current situation is unsustainable—

2. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Education: Questions Without Notice from Party Spokespeople (12 Jun 2024)

Cefin Campbell: I will come to my question. Therefore, what I would like to know is how Starmer is going to deliver something that Welsh Labour has failed to deliver, namely to transform our education sector and to make it an attractive sector to teachers once again.

4. Statement by the Cabinet Secretary for Health and Social Care: Six Goals for Urgent and Emergency Care Two Years On (11 Jun 2024)

Mabon ap Gwynfor: Well, it appears that 'plan' is the word of this general election. There is a plan for everything. Sunak has a plan. Starmer has a plan. The world and his dog has a plan, apparently. Nobody has more experience of preparing plans than the Welsh Government, with plans coming out of their ears, particularly in looking at the health service, and now we have another plan here this afternoon—this...

3. Statement by the Cabinet Secretary for Finance, Constitution and Cabinet Office: Context for and approach to the next Spending Review period (11 Jun 2024)

Rebecca Evans: ..., and cutting the red tape that's hampering some of our leading industries that we have here in Wales, and also really pleased to hear the FM reiterating the discussions that he'd had with Keir Starmer previously about powers and funding coming back to us here in Wales when they've been removed as a result of Brexit, despite the fact that we were told that we wouldn't be a penny worse off...

1. Questions to the First Minister: Child Poverty (11 Jun 2024)

Llyr Gruffydd: ...two-child benefit cap on families, which leaves the poorest families thousands of pounds out of pocket and adversely affecting more than one in 10 children in Wales. Now, unbelievably, Sir Keir Starmer has said that he won't be scrapping the cap, and at the same time he's saying that he is committed to providing over £200 billion for the Trident nuclear project. Now, that clearly shows,...

1. Questions to the First Minister: Questions Without Notice from the Party Leaders (11 Jun 2024)

Rhun ap Iorwerth: ...view of this Senedd, as seen in that vote last week, and the contempt, frankly, from Labour's London headquarters was in full show on Sunday by Emily Thornberry—a senior member of Keir Starmer's team, would-be Attorney-General. It was as dismissive an attitude towards this Senedd and its procedures as I have ever heard, to be honest. But perhaps the most revealing interview was that...

1. Questions to the First Minister: The UK General Election (11 Jun 2024)

Joel James: ...First Minister, every UK Government has been defeated due to its economic record, which has left us with higher taxes, higher national debt and higher unemployment. As we have seen recently, a Keir Starmer Government—sorry, Llywydd, a Sir Keir Starmer Government; whatever else he is, the man is still a knight—will mean higher taxes for ordinary men and women throughout Wales....

7. Plaid Cymru Debate: HS2 funding ( 5 Jun 2024)

Delyth Jewell: Committing to HS2 consequentials is, indeed, a litmus test, I think, both for Mr Sunak and Mr Starmer, a test they are failing. They ignore us because either they don't care or they don't care to notice. Mr Starmer has, indeed, committed to Trident spending. Why not give us the billions we are owed? Now, Carolyn set out the eye-watering sums of money being spent on HS2. I welcome—I really...

6. Welsh Conservatives Debate: The First Minister ( 5 Jun 2024)

Adam Price: ...occasion he was asked to give advice, which was reflected in a written report. No such courtesy was afforded to Hannah Blythyn. Now, maybe this is a sign of the new ruthlessness of which Sir Keir Starmer spoke so glowingly recently in an interview with The Daily Telegraph. Rebels in the new model Labour Party must pay a heavy price. But let's remember that Bevan himself was expelled from...

3. Topical Questions: HM Prison Parc ( 5 Jun 2024)

Sioned Williams: ...raised this issue with you last month, and so much has happened since then, you stated that you did support the devolution of justice to Wales. So, will you pledge today to make that case to Keir Starmer, should he be leading the new UK Government come July?

1. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Economy, Energy and Welsh Language: Questions Without Notice from Party Spokespeople ( 5 Jun 2024)

Jeremy Miles: ...Conservative Government that has neglected the UK economy, and I do think the Member’s arguments would have more force if they were tethered to the facts. It is absolutely not the case that Keir Starmer has said that the tax burden will go up. The reason that isn’t the case is that under the Conservatives households are facing the highest tax levels in decades. That is the record that...

8. Debate: The Steel Industry in Wales ( 4 Jun 2024)

John Griffiths: ...used, with a very new approach, a very different attitude to the importance of steel making and the importance of our steel communities. And I must say, when I was at the event in Abergavenny, Keir Starmer spoke very, very strongly and very passionately about the steel industry and the need to protect those jobs, the need to take that industry forward. There was a very strong commitment...

6. Statement by the Minister for Social Care: Transforming Children's Services ( 4 Jun 2024)

Dawn Bowden: .... So, I will concentrate on responding to the things that I'm responsible for, and then we will carry on and campaign for our respective parties outside of this Chamber. I hope that I will see Keir Starmer in No. 10 after 4 July, and I'm sure that we will be in a far better position than we are now. Clearly, from our financial position at this moment in time, we know nothing about where we...

5. Statement by the Cabinet Secretary for Culture and Social Justice: Culture and Social Justice — Reaffirmation of our values ( 4 Jun 2024)

Sioned Williams: ...the cap is nothing compared to the cost of keeping it—or maybe that's one of the tweets that he has now deleted. So, do you agree with the Swansea West Labour candidate, or with your leader, Keir Starmer, who has said that this is unaffordable, while arms and weapons are entirely affordable? And will you, as the member of the Welsh Government responsible for measures to eradicate child...

4. Statement by the Cabinet Secretary for Education: Consultation on the School Year ( 4 Jun 2024)

Tom Giffard: ...Labour Party in the Senedd that can't agree on anything, and a weak First Minister who can't command the authority of his group. And we, the Welsh public, are all paying the price for it. When Keir Starmer said that the Welsh Labour Government was a blueprint for a UK Labour Government, I now understand what he means. [Interruption.] I know he likes to flip-flop, but now I know where he...

1. Questions to the First Minister: Questions Without Notice from the Party Leaders ( 4 Jun 2024)

Rhun ap Iorwerth: ..., who are, understandably, livid with the UK party leadership. Perhaps the First Minister can tell us if he endorsed the choice of those candidates over local alternatives. And given that Keir Starmer clearly isn't willing to apologise to local Labour members, or to the people of Wales as a whole, will the First Minister do so on his behalf?

1. Questions to the First Minister: Support for Businesses in Caerphilly ( 4 Jun 2024)

Laura Anne Jones: you've just said, or any people at all. As we know on these benches, you cannot tax an economy into prosperity. It's all about choices, First Minister. And what worries me even more is that Keir Starmer now states that Wales is his plan for the rest of the UK. So, First Minister, can you tell us how this Government, and when this Government, actually plans to help businesses in my...
