Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: European Economic Community (19 Jul 1971)

Mr Denzil Davies: I thank the right hon. and learned Gentleman for that reply. I remind him that this report should be available for consideration over the summer. It is rather late to produce it in October just before the vote is taken in Parliament. As the Prime Minister indicated in the House a few weeks ago that if the E.E.C. Commission recommended a system of investment grants as opposed to investment...

Orders of the Day — United Kingdom and European Communities (26 Jul 1971)

Mr Denzil Davies: I hope that the hon. Member for Birmingham, Yardley (Mr. Coombs) will not think me disrespectful if I do not pursue his argument, other than to say that I disagree with the conclusion that he seems to have reached. I intend to speak on the effects of entry into the E.E.C. upon regional policies and the development of the regions. As a number of hon. Members have pointed out already, this...

Orders of the Day — United Kingdom and European Communities (26 Jul 1971)

Mr Denzil Davies: I agree absolutely. The point which I was making was that if we increase our home market area, if we allow capital to move within this much larger area and encourage the mobility of labour within it, we can never solve that problem by individual countries doing their best to try to change the balance. We need a strong centralised regional policy to counteract the market forces which we set in...

Orders of the Day — United Kingdom and European Communities (26 Jul 1971)

Mr Denzil Davies: That may be true. My point is that here is a body, the European Commission, which tells the Belgian Government what they can and cannot do and the Belgian Government have to submit. It is at this point that I believe the issue ceases to be economic and becomes a matter of sovereignty. The important question is not whether our existing aids are or are not contrary to the principles of the...

Orders of the Day — United Kingdom and European Communities (26 Jul 1971)

Mr Denzil Davies: I do not know the experience of Scotland, but our experience in Wales is that when investment is high in the Midlands we suffer a considerable depopulation, especially of our young people, from Mid-Wales. Unemployment in Mid-Wales falls, but not because the problem has been cured; it falls because of an exodus of young people to the Midlands.

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Industrial Incentives (29 Nov 1971)

Mr Denzil Davies: asked the Secretary of State for Wales whether he will ask the Welsh Council to make a further study of the incentives suitable for industrialists to invest in Wales.

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Industrial Incentives (29 Nov 1971)

Mr Denzil Davies: In view of the failure of the Government's development area policies, could they not at least try to remedy the situation by allowing industrialists to opt between investment grants and tax allowances where they consider that grants are a superior form of investment incentive?

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: M4 (Economic and Social Results) (29 Nov 1971)

Mr Denzil Davies: Is the Secretary of State aware that there is considerable anxiety in the Amman Valley that the road linking Ammanford and its environs with the motorway at Pont Abraham will not be a road of dual carriageway standard? Would the Secretary of State look again at this matter, especially as the Welsh Office indicated at one time that it would be a dual carriageway?

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Pembrey Bambing Range (29 Nov 1971)

Mr Denzil Davies: Has the Welsh Office given any consideration to the effect of the continuation of this bombing range on the plans of local authorities to establish a countryside park within the area, which would help to improve the amenities and be of great benefit to the area?

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Industrial Development Certificates (20 Dec 1971)

Mr Denzil Davies: asked the Secretary of State for Wales what representations he has received from the Confederation of British Industry in Wales seeking a relaxation in the regulations governing the issue of industrial development certificates.

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Industrial Development Certificates (20 Dec 1971)

Mr Denzil Davies: Is the Secretary of State aware that certain sections of the C.B.I. are actively canvassing for a relaxation of these regulations? Will he assure us that he and his right hon. Friends will withstand and not give way to this pressure?

Orders of the Day — European Communities Bill (16 Feb 1972)

Mr Denzil Davies: I hope that the hon. Member for Torrington (Mr. Peter Mills) will not think it amiss if I do not follow him into the ramifications of the effects of entry into Europe on British agriculture. I was interested to hear him say that he would oppose, or at least strenuously argue against, any regulations he felt were not in the interests of British agriculture. If he votes in favour of the Bill...

Orders of the Day — European Communities Bill (16 Feb 1972)

Mr Denzil Davies: If the hon. Gentleman wishes me to give way, I will.

Orders of the Day — European Communities Bill (16 Feb 1972)

Mr Denzil Davies: I shall not be disturbed in the least, because what the Government have done, and the way in which they have presented the Bill, have brought home even to those right hon. and hon. Friends of mine that there must be a better way of entering Europe than with a Bill like the one before us. The form and content of the Bill emphasise the underhandedness that has gone before. For example, the...

Orders of the Day — European Communities Bill (16 Feb 1972)

Mr Denzil Davies: I am sorry to disappoint the hon. and gallant Member, but I have not one example. Once these directives come from the Council of Ministers there is no point in objecting to them, because the matter is a fait accompli.

Orders of the Day — European Communities Bill (16 Feb 1972)

Mr Denzil Davies: The hon. and gallant Member misses the point. This body of men consciously chose not to give the members of the E.E.C. any democratic parliamentary control. Far from being men of vision, as we are sometimes told they are, these people seem rather autocratic little men, for otherwise they could not have consented to this Article which takes away most parliamentary control. We will no doubt be...

Orders of the Day — European Communities Bill (16 Feb 1972)

Mr Denzil Davies: That is the trouble.

Orders of the Day — European Communities Bill (16 Feb 1972)

Mr Denzil Davies: Since the hon. Gentleman has called me ignorant of the Community procedures, may I ask him whether he is happy to accept regulations when he knows nothing about their contents?

Chairman of Ways and Means (Conduct) (1 Mar 1972)

Mr Denzil Davies: May I return to the argument about whether the Bill approves the treaty or not'? If on the hon. and learned Gentleman's view this Bill does not approve the treaties in the constitutional sense, what sort of Bill does he think the Government should introduce to comply with the constitutional convention of approving treaties?

Chairman of Ways and Means (Conduct) (1 Mar 1972)

Mr Denzil Davies: Is the hon. Gentleman suggestion that Chairman of Committees are infallible, and can never make mistakes?
