  5. Tobacco Control Delivery Plan 2017-2020

    Members are now listening to a statement by the Minister for Social Services and Public Health, Rebecca Evans on the Tobacco Control Delivery Plan 2017-2020.

    The plan aims to reduce the number of people who smoke in Wales.

    The results of the 2016/17 National Survey show that adult smoking rates in Wales are 19%.

    The plan sets out a number of measures to reduce smoking further and to prevent young people from taking it up in the first place.

    The Welsh Government's ultimate aim is "a smoke-free Wales where the harm from tobacco is eradicated".

  6. 'Current immigration policy is a racist one'

    "I'm not the one who is racist.

    "The current immigration policy we have is a racist one because we apply restrictions to those with different colour faces that we don't to those that are overwhelmingly white, " says UKIP's Neil Hamilton.

  7. 'What a shambles the British Government finds itself in'

    Plaid Cymru's Steffan Lewis says that "just 18 months away from separation day, what a shambles the British Government finds itself in".

    On that day, he warns that the UK government "may be so desperate to keep the City of London afloat as a global financial centre... that it will permit London a special status within the UK but no-one else".

  9. 'Flexible – but managed – approach to migration'

    According to Mark Drakeford, "Wales’ interests are best served through full and unfettered access to the Single Market.

    "Consistent with this we advocate a flexible – but managed – approach to migration more closely connected to employment.

    "This must be coupled with rigorous prevention of exploitation of workers which will, we believe, improve wages and conditions for all workers."

  10. 'Fair movement of people'

    Next is a statement by the Cabinet Secretary for Finance and Local Government Mark Drakeford on the policy paper on Brexit and Fair Movement of People.

  13. Bill is 'technical in nature'

    Conservative Mark Isherwood says the bill is "technical in nature".

    The Office of the Secretary of State for Wales has said there are 64 policy areas currently under EU control that could go to the Welsh Government and 111 for the Scottish Government.

  14. Joint amendments to the EU withdrawal bill

    Carwyn Jones says the current bill is "not fit for purpose".

    He explains that he and the First Minister of Scotland Nicola Sturgeon have published joint amendments to the EU withdrawal bill "that would enable progress to be made among the governments in a way which respects the hard-won devolution settlements".

    He calls for a Bill that "works with, not against, devolution".
