(60 mins)                                                                                                         

 

NDM6371 Neil Hamilton (Mid and West Wales)

To propose that the National Assembly:

1. Believes that Brexit:

a) enables the Welsh people to have more control over their own lives by devolving governmental powers from unelected technocrats in Brussels to Assembly Members in Cardiff and MPs at Westminster;

b) can create more prosperity for agriculture and the rural economy, by replacing the CAP with an agricultural policy tailor-made for Wales's specific needs, with special reference to conservation and environmental protection based on scientific principles and incurring proportionate cost to rural taxpayers and businesses.

2. Believes that the Welsh Government should develop other tailor made policies for rural areas within a localism agenda which empowers local people by:

a) making major planning decisions with a significant adverse impact on the quality of life, such as intrusive wind-farms, subject to local referendums;

b) making major changes to the provision of rural schools and other educational services subject to genuine local consultation;

c) facilitating more affordable rural housing; and

d) giving greater priority to the provision of NHS facilities in smaller rural towns.

The following amendments were tabled:

Amendment 1. Paul Davies (Preseli Pembrokeshire)

Delete all and replace with:

To propose that the National Assembly for Wales:

1. Believes that leaving the European Union offers the opportunity to devolve more powers to the National Assembly for Wales.

2. Acknowledges that there will be an opportunity to reduce the amount of red tape facing Welsh farmers and expects the Welsh Government to work with the UK Government to deliver a post-Brexit framework that supports Welsh farmers.

3. Calls on the Welsh Government to do more to support rural communities across Wales, by developing more tailor-made policies in the areas of health, education and housing.

[If amendment 1 is agreed, amendment 2 will be de-selected]

Amendment 2. Rhun ap Iorwerth (Ynys Môn)

Delete all and replace with:

Believes that the current approach to Brexit through the UK Government's European Union (Withdrawal) Bill blocks the exercise of devolved powers by the Assembly and endangers the control people in Wales have over their lives.
