Motions and Amendments for Debate on 18 November 2015

Motions tabled on 11 November 2015

Short Debate

NDM5876 Julie Morgan (Cardiff North)

War on food waste: End the waste of good food in Wales

NDM5875 Paul Davies (Preseli Pembrokeshire)

To propose that the National Assembly for Wales:

1. Notes the negative impact that delayed transfers of care can have on the Welsh NHS and an individual's quality of life;

2. Recognises the importance of ensuring that people in Wales have the necessary support to enable them to remain in their own home for as long as possible; and

3. Believes that introducing the option of a 'stay at home' assessment in Wales for all people upon retirement age could provide a key early intervention measure which could prevent hospitalisation and delayed transfers of care upon leaving hospital.

NDM5877 Elin Jones (Ceredigion)

To propose that the National Assembly for Wales:

1. Opposes the renewal or replacement of the current Trident system by the UK Government; and

2. Supports international efforts for world-wide nuclear disarmament.

NDM5878 Aled Roberts (North Wales)

To propose that the National Assembly for Wales:

1.  Notes that over 170,000 people in Wales are employed directly and indirectly in tourism and related sectors;

2. Notes that 44 per cent of people employed within the tourism sector are under 30 years old, and therefore measures to support this sector could play a key role in reducing the youth unemployment rate in Wales;

3.  Believes that a reduction in VAT on tourism would encourage more domestic and international visitors, provide a significant boost to local businesses and lead to increased investment, jobs and economic growth;

4.  Notes that 25 other EU Member States already take advantage of an EU dispensation for a lower VAT rate on tourist attractions and accommodation; and

5.  Calls on the Welsh Government to make representations to the UK Government to lower the VAT on tourism from 20 per cent to 5 per cent, to help us compete with other European countries and send a strong message that Wales is open to tourists and open for business.
