Today (Tuesday 18th January), the Welsh Grand Committee met in Parliament to discuss Welsh affairs and the strength of the Union. The Welsh Grand Committee is a committee of the House of Commons, made up of all forty Welsh MPs. The committee can meet after a Queen’s Speech or budget statement, or it can meet to discuss specific issues. It provides an opportunity for MPs to question ministers and to debate current affairs.
This is the first meeting of the Welsh Grand Committee since 2018 and my first since becoming the MP for Wrexham in 2019.
I used the session to discuss my recent calls for the Welsh Government to launch an inquiry into healthcare provision and the management of healthcare services in Wrexham, noting that the local health board has “failed to deliver an acceptable level of healthcare” and citing some of the complaints that I have heard from constituents. I also urged “the Ministers in Cardiff to look at Wrexham and undertake an inquiry to see what is actually going on, and what people are actually experiences.”
