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

Mr Denzil Davies: Is the Minister aware that there are miners in my constituency who find it difficult to comprehend a situation where they are being denied a just wage on the ground that it would be inflationary, while the Government deliberately put up the price of food by imposing taxes? Will the Government now stop lecturing the miners and put their own house in order?

Orders of the Day — Mid and South-West Wales (16 Jan 1974)

Mr Denzil Davies: I wish to raise as briefly as possible some of the problems confronting the people in my constituency and, indeed, in the area that can fairly clearly be defined as South-West and Mid-Wales. On looking at the Estimates, it appears at first sight that this debate should be limited to something called Other Environmental Services, &c, Wales", but on making a few inquiries I have found that the...

Orders of the Day — Mid and South-West Wales (16 Jan 1974)

Mr Denzil Davies: I accept that the miners have had an increase since 1970, but would the right hon. and learned Gentleman not agree that the last major increase they had was as a result of industrial action and the Wilberforce inquiry, and that it was not an increase given by the Government graciously, but forced out of them? Would he not agree that the next increase they will get will be, again, as a result...

Mr Denzil Davies: asked the Secretary of State for Wales what representations he has received from representatives of National Health Service staff in Wales regarding the problems arising from the reorganisation of the administrative structure of the health service ; and what replies he has sent.

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: National Health Service Reorganisation (21 Jan 1974)

Mr Denzil Davies: Does the Secretary of State realise that, despite his desire to keep the staff informed, there is still considerable anxiety among them about their future rôle under the new area health authorities? Will he now give an assurance that a substantial majority of staff will know by the end of this month what their duties and responsibilities will be under the new authorities when constituted?

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: Common Agricultural Policy (7 Feb 1974)

Mr Denzil Davies: asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what decisions on the reform of the common agricultural policy have been taken by the EEC Council of Ministers.

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: Common Agricultural Policy (7 Feb 1974)

Mr Denzil Davies: Does the right hon. Gentleman not feel a certain sense of shame in that he has been a member of a Government whose main policy appears to have been confrontation at home and capitulation in Europe? Instead of grovelling to the French, ought not he and his colleagues to have been seeking to carry out a radical reform of the CAP, thereby contributing to a substantial reduction in the price of food?

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Llanelli Public Library (18 Mar 1974)

Mr Denzil Davies: asked the Secretary of State for Wales how many letters his Department has received protesting at the decision to transfer control over the Llanelli public library to the new Dyfed County Council.

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Llanelli Public Library (18 Mar 1974)

Mr Denzil Davies: I thank my hon. Friend for that answer. Is he aware that there is considerable indignation in my constituency at the previous Government's decision, despite the assurance that we received in Committee, to transfer control of our public library to the county council? Will my hon. Friend seek urgent consultation with his hon. Friend in the Department of Education and Science to see whether that...

Welsh Affairs (21 Mar 1974)

Mr Denzil Davies: May I also extend my congratulations to you publicly, Mr. Deputy Speaker, on your elevation to your high position in the House. Your appointment has been greeted with admiration in Wales, and with approval from both sides of the House, but especially among your numerous friends throughout Wales. I congratulate too my right hon. and learned Friend and hon. Friends on their appointments to the...

Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (28 Mar 1974)

Mr Denzil Davies: The hon. and learned Member for Solihull (Mr. Grieve) made an extraordinary speech. One would not have thought that he had been a Member of the party which had formed the Government of the past three and a half years—a Government who have bequeathed to us one of the gravest financial and economic crises which this country has faced for a long time. If his Government had not been in office...

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Company Liquidity and Profitability (2 May 1974)

Mr Denzil Davies: Does my right hon. Friend agree that the Opposition's concern about company liquidity would carry more weight if, when they were in Government, they had not changed a system of corporation tax which favoured retentions to a system which favoured distributions, thereby penalising companies that wanted to invest from retentions?

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Value Added Tax (13 Jun 1974)

Mr Denzil Davies: When my hon. Friend is considering the scope of VAT, will he make it clear that the Government have no intention of implementing the proposals of the European Commission to impose VAT on the sale of new houses as is proposed in the harmonisation directive?

Orders of the Day — Eec (Economic Policy) (3 Jul 1974)

Mr Denzil Davies: On a point of order, Mr. Speaker. I do not question your decision not to call the amendment, but may we have your guidance on how these matters might be dealt with in future? The European Secondary Legislation Committee will be recommending debates on various matters in the House. I think that it will be difficult if hon. Members on some occasions cannot amend some of these orders and...

Orders of the Day — Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (13 Nov 1974)

Mr Denzil Davies: In the time available to me it is not possible to deal with all the major items of policy announced by my right hon. Friend the Chancellor in his Budget Statement. I hope, therefore, that my right hon. and hon. Friends on the Treasury Bench will not consider that I am being unduly critical when I confine my speech to two major reservations I have about the Budget. Apart from those...

Orders of the Day — Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (13 Nov 1974)

Mr Denzil Davies: I agree that equity demands that most increased taxation should fall on direct taxes. It might be asking too much to impose the whole £800 million on direct taxation. I was not suggesting that we should have a multi-rate value added tax of the kind that some people have been advocating. I was saying that it should be possible to isolate those goods which used to fall within the top rate of...

Orders of the Day — Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (13 Nov 1974)

Mr Denzil Davies: No, I would disagree with that. I do not think it was wrong. As I said at the time, I think my right hon. Friend should have recognised that some luxury goods should bear a higher rate of VAT than the 8 per cent. which has been established. Some of the £800 million could come from taxes and from consumer expenditure such as wines, spirits and tobacco. It would have been better to attempt to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: Butter (Import Levies) (5 Dec 1974)

Mr Denzil Davies: Will my hon. Friend explain to those of us who are not experts in this sphere and find it difficult to understand the complications of the CAP why it is necessary to impose these taxes on imports of food, especially at a time when we are fighting a difficult battle against inflation?

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill (17 Dec 1974)

Mr Denzil Davies: The hon. Member for Cornwall, North (Mr. Pardoe) covered such a wide area and offered so many solutions to our problems that I hope he will forgive me for not following up in detail what he said. I should like to say, however, that I am in disagreement with practically everything he said. I shall be dealing with some of the matters he raised. I found it particularly horrifying that he should...
