I recently questioned the Minister for Health, Vaughan Gething, on the lack of availability of drugs like Orkambi and Symkevi in the Welsh NHS, despite the availability in Scotland. I am pleased to say that the Welsh Government has now come to an agreement to provide Orkambi, a big relief to the one in every 2,500 babies born with Cystic Fibrosis.
The recent BBC documentary into Wales puppy farming has proven that the regulations set by the Welsh Government aren’t working. Is it not time that we ended this foul practice in its entirety and moved to ban puppy farming in Wales? Unfortunately, it would seem the Minister doesn’t agree.
