Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Regional Employment Premium (6 Nov 1972)

Mr Denzil Davies: The right hon. and learned Gentleman's answer is predictable but disappointing. Will he tell the House whether it is the view of the Welsh Office—his Department—that the abolition of the regional employment premium will be beneficial or detrimental to the Welsh economy?

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill (2 Apr 1973)

Mr Denzil Davies: I hope that the hon. Member for Norfolk, North (Mr. Ralph Howell) will forgive me if I do not follow him in the intricacies of his argument. He clearly knows far more about the subject than I do. Any tax system involves a certain amount of evasion, be it at the lower or higher level. The Government have introduced VAT which appears to be more susceptible to evasion because of its...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill (2 Apr 1973)

Mr Denzil Davies: I do not think the points are fully covered. My final remarks were not directed at the Chancellor. I was saying that I could not understand why the Inland Revenue over the years had not sought to apply what I thought was the law: that artificial prices cannot be substituted for market prices, thereby reducing liability to British taxation. That is the point I was trying to make. I was not...

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: EEC Regional Policy (9 Apr 1973)

Mr Denzil Davies: asked the Secretary of State for Wales what discussions his Department has had with the officials of the Commission of the EEC on the effect of the Community's proposed regional policy on the Welsh economy.

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: EEC Regional Policy (9 Apr 1973)

Mr Denzil Davies: Since Wales is suffering from a lower per capita income than most member States which participate in the common agricultural policy, will the right hon. and learned Gentleman make it clear in Brussels that the whole of Wales without exception must qualify for the highest level of financial assistance under any proposed regional policy laid down by the Commission?

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Road Haulage (Heavy Freight) (7 May 1973)

Mr Denzil Davies: asked the Secretary of State for Wales whether he will ask the Welsh Council to investigate the environmental and other problems caused by the carriage of coal and other heavy goods by road haulage.

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Road Haulage (Heavy Freight) (7 May 1973)

Mr Denzil Davies: Is not the right hon. and learned Gentleman aware that there is growing resentment in some valley communities that heavy coal loads are being carried by the National Coal Board by road when it could use existing rail facilities? Will he consider using any powers he has to try to ensure that local authorities, in granting the board planning permission, make sure that the board gives an...

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: M4 Motorway (11 Jun 1973)

Mr Denzil Davies: asked the Secretary of State for Wales when he now expects that the M4 motorway will reach the borders of Carmarthenshire.

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: M4 Motorway (11 Jun 1973)

Mr Denzil Davies: Is the Secretary of State aware that his assurances will be welcomed but that to some extent in South-West Wales there is still a certain amount of confusion? Can he tell us whether by 1976 there will be a continuous motorway link between London and the Pontardulais bypass?

New Clause 23: Temporary Statutory Effect of House of Commons Resolution Affecting Stamp Duties (10 Jul 1973)

Mr Denzil Davies: I welcome the new clause. My hon. Friend the Member for Islington, South-West (Mr. George Cunningham) rightly said that he would have preferred the matter to be dealt with under the Provisional Collection of Tax Act and not by turning the resolution into a semi-statute. Perhaps the Minister will say whether one reason for this is that the European Commission and the Common Market in general...

New Clause 2: Perquisites of Office — Anti-Tax Avoidance (10 Jul 1973)

Mr Denzil Davies: We have heard from the Chancellor that this is a complex problem. It is complex but no more complex than many other difficulties which Governments face in legislating for taxation. I do not believe that it is that difficult. I believe that it is fairly easy to lay down a simple proposition that a person resident and domiciled in this country shall pay British income tax on foreign earnings as...

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Royal Ordnance Factory Site, Pembrey (23 Jul 1973)

Mr Denzil Davies: asked the Secretary of State for Wales whether he will now approve the compulsory purchase order made by a consortium of local authorities in respect of the old Royal ordnance factory site at Pembrey.

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Royal Ordnance Factory Site, Pembrey (23 Jul 1973)

Mr Denzil Davies: Does not the Secretary of State realise that there is considerable resentment in my constituency at the failure of the Welsh Office to approve this compulsory purchase order? Further, does he not realise that the local authorities' ambitious plans to develop a countryside park have now been put in jeopardy by the intervention of a private property company whose sole concern is to make as much...

Sugar (24 Oct 1973)

Mr Denzil Davies: Unlike the hon. Member for Mid-Bedfordshire (Mr. Hastings), I have no interest, either financial or constituency, in the subject matter of this debate, but I share the interest of most hon. Members in people living in the less-developed parts of the world and also in citizens of this country employed in the cane-producing and refining industry. A few years ago, this debate would not have...

Sugar (24 Oct 1973)

Mr Denzil Davies: I did not say that the right hon. Gentleman was a bad negotiator. I said that he was a very good negotiator, but that the Government's performance up till now does not inspire confidence in the future, and the right hon. Gentleman is in a very difficult and weak position—which the Government have put him in.

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Foreign Currency Reserves (29 Nov 1973)

Mr Denzil Davies: asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will take steps to reduce and eliminate the amount by which the United Kingdom's foreign currency obligations exceed its foreign currency reserves.

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Foreign Currency Reserves (29 Nov 1973)

Mr Denzil Davies: Is not the right hon. Gentleman aware that, taking account of our obligations in terms of sterling balances, our foreign obligations exceed our so-called reserves by at least £4,000 million? Does he not agree that if any commercial organisation were to try to operate in that way, its directors would be put behind bars?

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Rate Support Grant (3 Dec 1973)

Mr Denzil Davies: Is the Secretary of State not aware that one effect of the new arrangements on counties like my own, the new county of Dyfed, which has large rural and industrial areas, will be to impose an additional rating burden upon the factories in the industrial areas? Is he not aware that the effect will be that these areas will suffer more than adjoining areas, such as West Glamorgan, which will not...

Orders of the Day — Economic and Energy Situation (19 Dec 1973)

Mr Denzil Davies: Having listened to the debate for the last two days one thing upon which we can all agree is that we are facing a difficult and severe national crisis. It would have been reassuring if the crisis had been due entirely to external factors. Then it would have been simple to rally around the Government in fighting for economic survival. Unfortunately, the main reason for the crisis is the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: Import Duties (20 Dec 1973)

Mr Denzil Davies: asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food whether, in pursuance of the counter-inflationary policy, he will now remove the import levies now charged on butter and cheese from outside the EEC.
