  • My Response To Sam Gyimah

    June 09, 2017

    In his letter to me the Minister has again failed to provide a suitable response to my concerns on the proposed location of the prison in Port Talbot. I have therefore written to him again urging him to provide a full and transparent explanation as to why the Baglan Industrial Park has been selected by the Ministry of Justice as its preferred site for the proposed Port Talbot prison. Mr Gyimah is also far too evasive on the subject of community consultation.  You can read my full letter below:

  • Aberavon MP and AM slam Prison Minister for failure to come clean on proposed prison

    May 02, 2017

      Aberavon MP, Stephen Kinnock and Assembly Member, David Rees, wrote to Prisons Minister Sam Gyimah following the announcement on 22nd March of a new prison to be sited in Port Talbot, requesting information about the location and greater detail of the proposed prison. To their dismay the Prisons Minister failed to respond to their letter at all until Mr Kinnock raised the question in Parliament with the Secretary of State for Wales, Alan Cairns. Mr Kinnock’s questioning appeared to shake Mr Gyimah into action, because that very same day he sent what appeared to be a hastily drafted letter to both Mr Kinnock and Mr Rees.

  • Ignoring Brexit during this election would be a mistake

    April 28, 2017

    Photo: The Times / News Syndication Imagine driving through central London, at rush hour, with no traffic lights. Imagine the Merseyside derby (the fixture that has seen more red cards than any other in British football) being played without a referee. Imagine flights trying to land at Heathrow without any air traffic controllers. It probably would not end well, would it? And now imagine that Britain exits the European Union with no Article 50 deal, and no prospect of a trade deal -– the so-called World Trade Organisation (WTO) option. Much as we have all wished, even if just for a moment, that the offside rule did not exist, or that we could just jump that red light, ultimately we always come to see the value of rules, systems and the institutions that oversee them.

Stephen Kinnock also asked why he has yet to receive any response to his letter to the Prisons Minister, Sam Gyimah, which was sent well over a month ago (on 23 March).
