  • Apr 3, 2014:
    • Business of the House: Bovine TB (3 Apr 2014)
      Roger Williams: I draw Members' attention to my entry in the register of interests. Ever since I have been a Member of Parliament, I have been following the development of vaccines for badgers and cattle and I commend the Secretary of State on continuing that work, but he knows that a test that could identify diseased badgers so we could eliminate them and vaccinate the healthy badgers would really...

    • Oral Answers to Questions - Prime Minister: Engagements (2 Apr 2014)
      Roger Williams: Although I welcome the Government's intervention on fuel bills, many rural people do not benefit from mains gas and have to depend on more expensive fuels. Will the Government investigate how they can benefit off-grid customers, who often live in fuel poverty?
    • [Dr William McCrea in the Chair] - Elliott Review and Food Crime (2 Apr 2014)
      Roger Williams: I congratulate the hon. Lady on securing this debate and wish I could stay a little longer. She outlined different forms of food crime. One form that I am particularly interested in is the importing of bush meat into this country, particularly from west Africa. Given the outbreak of the Ebola virus, should the Government not make even more effort to ensure that that food does not come into...
  • Apr 1, 2014:
    • Written Answers - Health: Parkinson's Disease (1 Apr 2014)
      Roger Williams: To ask the Secretary of State for Health what initiatives are in place to train health professionals on the importance of providing people with Parkinson's disease medication on time while they are in hospital.
    • Written Answers - Health: Parkinson's Disease (1 Apr 2014)
      Roger Williams: To ask the Secretary of State for Health what steps the Government is taking to ensure there is a quick and easy way for a patient with Parkinson's disease to lodge a complaint against a hospital trust should they not receive their medicine on time during their stay.
  • Mar 31, 2014:
    • Bill Presented: Wales Bill (31 Mar 2014)
      Roger Williams: It is a great pleasure to speak in this debate. Many great political figures in the history of devolution will be very pleased that it is taking place. My predecessor Richard Livsey, Rhodri Morgan, Ron Davies, Lord Wigley and Lord Elis-Thomas will be delighted, although Richard Livsey is in a more elevated chamber than those in the Palace of Westminster. Although the Conservatives did not...
    • Bill Presented: Wales Bill (31 Mar 2014)
      Roger Williams: I accept the hon. Gentleman's argument, but that is the form in which the Bill appears, and rather than take the risk of losing the powers, my party is prepared to accept it. On borrowing powers, I share some of the concerns outlined by my hon. Friend the Member for Ceredigion (Mr Williams), who will speak later, on the issue of writing a borrowing figure into the Bill. In the Welsh...
    • Bill Presented: Wales Bill (31 Mar 2014)
      Roger Williams: I am sure that the hon. Gentleman will be voting against this part of the Bill, but does he think that there could be an amendment so that we do not have closed lists but open ones? Would that be an improvement?
  • Mar 27, 2014:
    • Oral Answers to Questions - Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Bovine TB (27 Mar 2014)
      Roger Williams: I welcome the Secretary of State's using all means at his disposal to control the disease. One of those is the polymerase chain reaction test, which will be able to identify infected live badgers and the setts in which they live. Will he ensure that all the available resources go into promoting that test, which could have a role in controlling bovine TB?
  • Mar 26, 2014:
    • Oral Answers to Questions - Wales: Cross-border Hospital Services (26 Mar 2014)
      Roger Williams: Powys local health board has just closed six beds at Knighton hospital because of recruitment problems. With Llandrindod hospital almost always full, that could cause bed-blocking in Hereford hospital. Will the Secretary of State work with the Department of Health and the Welsh Assembly to ensure that those beds are reopened as soon as possible, that Welsh patients can recover from their...

    If you are a resident of the Brecon and Radnorshire constituency and are writing to discuss any issue that Parliament or government is responsible for, you must provide your home address as MPs are generally only permitted to act on behalf of constituents.

    If you are not a constituent, you do not need to provide your address, but the matters we can deal with are more limited and you may wish to contact your local MP in the first instance.
