Lobbying & Campaigns

Campaign generated emails from constituents are always welcome and where appropriate passed onto the relevant Government Minister.  

These are sometimes from individuals, more often from campaign groups and are seeking Robin's thoughts on wider policy ideas and national campaigns. 

On this page you will find Robin's views and opinions on the wider policy and campaign issues that are most commonly raised with him. 

 

Mae negeseuon e-bost gan etholwyr yn sgil ymgyrchoedd bob amser yn cael eu croesawu a lle bo'n briodol cânt eu trosglwyddo i'r Gweinidog perthnasol yn y Llywodraeth. 

Mae'r rhain weithiau gan unigolion, yn amlach gan grwpiau ymgyrchu ac yn gofyn am ei farn am syniadau polisi ehangach ac ymgyrchoedd cenedlaethol.

Ar y dudalen hon fe welwch safbwyntiau a barn Robin ar y materion polisi ac ymgyrchu ehangach a godir amlaf gydag ef. 

Immigration Bill/Bil Mewnfudo

Yesterday, 18th May, saw the Second Reading of the Immigration and Social Security Co-ordination (EU Withdrawal) Bill.

Fur Trade/Masnach mewn Ffwr

The UK is a nation of animal lovers, so it is only right that we have some of the highest welfare standards in the world. In addition to fur farming being banned in the UK, I am pleased to note that the import of fur products is tightly regulated.

Agriculture Bill/Bil Amaethyddiaeth

I know that many people are concerned about aspects of the Agriculture Bill, including potential trade deals with countries who may not have similar standards of animal welfare and food hygiene, maintaining our own high animal welfare standards, making sure we know the food we eat is produced eth

Support for Asylum Seekers

I have been contacted by many residents who are concerned about those currently going through the immigration system and asylum seekers needing additional support at this time.

Antibiotics in Farming

Antibiotic resistance is the biggest threat to modern medicine, and we must act now to help keep antibiotics effective for future generations. 

Pavement Parking/Parcio ar Balmentydd

Transport Secretary, Grant Shapps MP has this week set out proposals to tackle pavement parking in England.

The Transport Select Committee published its report on pavement parking in England, calling on the UK Government to introduce a ban and provide stronger, clearer laws.

Renters' Reform Bill/Bil Diwygio Rhentwyr

Housing is a devolved area in Wales however I thought this information on protecting private renters from evictions, particularly people of an older generation who could be more vulnerable could be important to many of you.

Trophy Hunting EDM 50/Hela am Hwyl

I have been contacted by a large number of constituents about trophy hunting and the current EDM 50 laid before parliament on 9th January 2020.  This replaces EDM 1829 which expired at the end of the last parliament.

Child Marriage/Priodi Plant

The UN Trust Fund to End Violence against Women, managed by UN Women on behalf of the UN system, is the only global grant-making mechanism dedicated to eradicating all forms of violence against women and girls.

Homelessness/Digartrefedd

Just one person without a roof over their head is one too many, and it is vitally important that the most vulnerable people in society, including homeless people and rough sleepers, are helped to get their lives back on track.

Child Refugees/Ffoaduriaid sy’n Blant

I am saddened that children are still being caught up in this continuing refugee crisis, and I appreciate the strength of feeling expressed, however, the focus of the legislation was on implementing the deal as agreed with the EU so that the Withdrawal Agreement could have effect in UK law.

Alcohol & Beer Duty/Toll Alcohol a Chwrw

I know just how important local pubs are to community life in Aberconwy - and judging by how popular the Westminster Hall debate on this issue was, many other MPs in Westminster share that view.

Onshore Wind Farms/Gwynt ar y Tir

I am pleased that clean growth has been placed at the heart of the new Industrial Strategy which aims to cut emissions while keeping costs down for consumers, create high value jobs and to grow the economy.

Global Ocean Treaty/Cytundeb Cefnforoedd Byd-eang

Our oceans are currently facing unprecedented challenges, including climate change and over-fishing. It is more important than ever to take action to ensure our seas are healthy, abundant and resilient.

Motor Neurone Disease/Clefyd Niwronau Motor

It is crucial that people who have a terminal illness receive support when they need it, and that the process for retrieving this support does not involve not unnecessary stress.

Privacy & The Press/Preifatrwydd a’r Wasg

A vibrant, open and free press that can hold the powerful to account is vital to our democracy. Balanced against this it is not unreasonable to expect the press to act with understanding in relation to sensitive personal stories.

Windrush

Commonwealth citizens, like the Windrush generation, are a unique group who have built their life here and have contributed enormously to our country. I do not want anyone to be in any doubt about their right to remain here.  

Dementia Care Campaign/Gofal Dementia

I can assure you that dementia is a priority for the Government. In 2015, the Challenge on Dementia 2020 was launched, and I know that the Government remains committed to delivering this. This sets out the vision for dementia care, support, awareness, and research to be transformed by 2020.

Air Quality - Clean Air Strategy /Ansawdd aer

Poor air quality is the greatest environmental risk to our health. Our air is now cleaner than at any point since the industrial revolution, but there is more work to be done if we are to protect the health of our nation.

 

Y Gwrthdaro yn Syria -Idlib

Mae'r sefyllfa ddyngarol yn Idlib yn ddifrifol dros ben. Rwyf yn bryderus iawn am y gweithredu milwrol parhaus gan Rwsia a'r gyfundrefn Syriaidd yn Idlib, gan gynnwys ymosodiadau sydd wedi taro'r isadeiledd cyhoeddus.

Syria - Idlib

The humanitarian situation in Idlib is extremely serious. I am very concerned by the ongoing military action by Russia and the Syrian regime in Idlib, including strikes which have hit civilian infrastructure.
