To propose that the Senedd, in accordance with Standing Order 11.21 (ii):

The Legislative Programme

Welsh Government Annual Report 2023


NDM8325 - 1 | Tabled on 05/07/2023

Add new point at end of motion:

Welcomes the continued progress made as part of the Cooperation Agreement between Plaid Cymru and the Welsh Government which has implemented a number of transformational policies as part of the Programme for Government.

NDM8325 - 2 | Tabled on 05/07/2023

Add new point at end of motion:

Believes that the annual report and legislative programme demonstrate that the Welsh Government does not have all the levers necessary to ensure meaningful and sustainable improvements to the lives of the people of Wales, that we must continue to make the case for additional powers but that ultimately, independence is the most feasible means to achieve a greener, fairer, more prosperous Wales.

NDM8325 - 3 | Tabled on 06/07/2023

Add new points at end of motion:

Believes that the annual report highlights the Welsh Government’s major failings in delivering for the people of Wales.

Calls on the Welsh Government to address the pressures the health and education systems are under, which have both received real-term cuts in the Welsh Government’s 2023-24 budget.

Further calls on the Welsh Government to tackle the gap in take-home pay between Wales and the rest of the United Kingdom, along with Wales having the UK’s lowest employment rate.

Regrets that the legislative programme will not deliver the change Wales needs.
