  • Look Again At Felindre As A More Appropriate Site To Locate The Prison

    September 13, 2017

      It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Brady. I thank the hon. Member for Dwyfor Meirionnydd (Liz Saville Roberts) for securing this debate. The proposals for a new prison in my constituency have caused consternation among many local residents. Their frustration has been exacerbated by the Minister’s reluctance to visit the constituency and to hear the concerns of residents directly from them. Back in March, I warned the Minister that if he did not engage comprehensively with the local community, speculation would grow. Six months on, the Minister has failed to engage with the community, with the result that speculation is indeed rife, and there is guesswork and hearsay. When the Government fail to give us the information we need, what else do they expect?

  • European Union (Withdrawal) Bill Looks Like A Silent Coup

    September 12, 2017

    It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Stoke-on-Trent South (Jack Brereton). Last June, the British people voted to leave the European Union. It was an outcome that I campaigned against, but it is a decision that I fully accept and respect as a democrat. That is why I voted to trigger article 50, and I have spent the past 15 months considering how to make Brexit work. It is precisely in that vein, driven by a desire to defend and advance our national interest and to enact the will of the British people, that I have risen today to urge hon. Members to decline to give this Bill a Second Reading.

    September 06, 2017

      Aberavon MP Stephen Kinnock has expressed his disappointment after Prisons Minister Sam Gyimah MP turned down the invitation to attend a public meeting on the proposed prison in Port Talbot.  In the first questions in Parliament after the summer recess, Mr Kinnock said, ‘The Minister’s plans to build a prison on the Baglan industrial park in my constituency are causing a huge amount of concern and disquiet with the community. Could I urge the Minister to come to the public meeting that I have organised on the 20th of September to explain the position to the community?’
