Vikki Howells, Cynon Valley MS and chair of the Labour group, raises the looming prospect of the general election, happening on 4 July.

“It’s no wonder,” she says, that the Conservatives “will do anything, anything at all, to try and shift the spotlight from their own record of abject failure.”

“Vaughan Gething is the democratically elected leader of Welsh Labour. Welsh Labour is the democratically elected party of government,” she said.

She said Mr Gething’s government has been “delivering” for the people of Wales.

“I believe it would be a travesty if this non-binding Tory gimmick of a motion was to be used to subvert democracy,” she said.

There were banging of the tables on the Labour benches as she finished her speech.
