Orders of the Day — Finance Bill (28 Apr 1971)

Mr Denzil Davies: The hon. Gentleman will know that the Inland Revenue has been extremely reluctant to try to pursue the taxation of profits made on stocks and shares which are sold over a short period of time. In reality, these are trading profits, but the Revenue has not in the past, and will not in future, tax them as such. As I said, these large gains will be taxed at only 30 per cent. This step has been...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill (28 Apr 1971)

Mr Denzil Davies: I apologise. I referred to Clause 21 when I meant Clause 22. In any case, the Financial Secretary will no doubt wish to clear up this difficulty when he replies to the debate. If he confirms what I have said, I trust that he will not shelter behind any specious arguments about the administrative inconvenience of taxing the cumulative income of trustees at more than 30 per cent. After all, he...

Cynheidre Colliery (Accident) (7 Apr 1971)

Mr Denzil Davies: Mr. Denzil Davies (by Private Notice) asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry whether he would make a statement regarding the disaster which occurred yesterday at the Cynheidre colliery when six miners lost their lives and 25 were injured.

Cynheidre Colliery (Accident) (7 Apr 1971)

Mr Denzil Davies: I am grateful to the Minister for agreeing to make a statement at such short notice. Before I endorse the hon. Gentleman's expressions of sympathy, may I urge on him and his Department the need to ensure not only that the proposed inquiry is far reaching, but also that every effort is made to accelerate the research which is going on at Cynheidre colliery into the causes of these so-called...

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Pembrey (Gunnery Range) (29 Mar 1971)

Mr Denzil Davies: asked the Secretary of State for Wales whether he will now publish the report of the public inquiry into the proposal to locate the Shoeburyness Gunnery Range at Pembrey.

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Pembrey (Gunnery Range) (29 Mar 1971)

Mr Denzil Davies: The right hon. Gentleman's reply is most disappointing. Does he not recollect that on St. David's Day, a month ago, he said that he would announce his decision very soon? Could he now say what is the reason for the delay, and, in particular, assure the House and the people of Wales that this delay is in no way caused by the deliberations which are now taking place on the location of a third...

Third London Airport (Roskill Commission Report) (4 Mar 1971)

Mr Denzil Davies: Hon. Members with constituencies encompassing Cublington, the other inland sites and Foulness may be rather surprised that a Member for a Welsh constituency should seek to intervene in the debate. I assure them that my intervention will take less than 10 minutes, and that it is made for good reason and not out of some kind of Celtic malevolence—though perhaps it will be understood that my...

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Local Authority Expenditure (1 Mar 1971)

Mr Denzil Davies: asked the Secretary of State for Wales whether he has received any representations from local authorities and other interested bodies about the application of the provisions of circular No. 116/70 (Welsh Office).

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Local Authority Expenditure (1 Mar 1971)

Mr Denzil Davies: Is the right hon. and learned Gentleman aware that there is considerable anxiety among local authorities about the content of this circular? Will he look at it again with a view to redefining the key sector proposals so as to include loans for development areas and so that clearance of derelict land has priority?

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Artillery Range (Pembrey) (1 Mar 1971)

Mr Denzil Davies: asked the Secretary of State for Wales whether he proposes to have consultation with the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry and the Secretary of State for the Environment regarding the proposed establishment of a gunnery range at Pembrey.

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Artillery Range (Pembrey) (1 Mar 1971)

Mr Denzil Davies: While appreciating that the right hon. and learned Gentleman may want to consult his colleagues, may I ask whether he would give an assurance to this House that ultimately he will decide this matter on its merits and not be forced into a decision which may be adverse to the position of Pembrey as a result of any Government decision to locate the third London airport at Foulness?

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Pembrey (Gunnery Range) (14 Dec 1970)

Mr Denzil Davies: asked the Secretary of State for Wales when he expects to announce his decision upon the inspector's report following the public inquiry into the proposed location of a gunnery range at Pembrey.

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Pembrey (Gunnery Range) (14 Dec 1970)

Mr Denzil Davies: Since the Secretary of State has told the House previously that he is mindful of his quasi-judicial capacity in this matter, and also since he refuses to give an undertaking that he will not consult the Ministry of Defence, will he now give an assurance that if he does consult that Ministry he will give local authorities which objected to the scheme an opportunity to reply to any proposals...

Orders of the Day — Coal Industry Bill (3 Dec 1970)

Mr Denzil Davies: On a point of order. The hon. Member for Worcestershire, South (Sir G. Nabarro) is mis-pronouncing Ebbw Vale.

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Llanelly General Hospital (23 Nov 1970)

Mr Denzil Davies: asked the Secretary of State for Wales what consultations his Department has had with the Welsh Hospital Board regarding the services to be provided at Llanelly General Hospital in the future.

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Llanelly General Hospital (23 Nov 1970)

Mr Denzil Davies: Will the Minister recognise that there is considerable fear in my constituency that the Welsh Hospital Board's policy towards Llanelly Hospital is one of benign, and perhaps not so benign, neglect? Will he urge the board to carry out the promise given in 1966 by the then chairman to spend £1 million on the immediate development of Llanelly Hospital?

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Gunnery Range, Pembrey (23 Nov 1970)

Mr Denzil Davies: asked the Secretary of State for Wales whether he will, immediately upon receipt, send copies of the inspector's report of the public inquiry into the proposal to locate a gunnery range at Pembrey to all those local authorities which gave notice of objection at the inquiry.

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Gunnery Range, Pembrey (23 Nov 1970)

Mr Denzil Davies: As the Minister does not appear to be willing to release the report immediately he receives it to one of the protagonists—that is, the councils—will he undertake not to discuss the contents of the report with the other protagonist—the Ministry of Defence—before he finally makes up his mind and publishes it?

Questions to Ministers (23 Nov 1970)

Mr Denzil Davies: On a point of order, Mr. Speaker. May I ask whether you have received notification from the Secretary of State for Wales that he intends to reconcile the apparent conflict or contradiction in the Answer which he gave to me on Question No. 4 relating to the proposal to locale a gunnery range at Pembrey in my constituency, when, on the one hand, the Secretary of State said that he intended to...

Orders of the Day — Environmental Pollution (21 Jul 1970)

Mr Denzil Davies: I ask for the indulgence of the House in making my maiden speech. I hope that hon. Members will allow me to name at the outset the man who until the recent General Election represented the constituency which I now have the honour to represent. The right hon. James Griffiths represented the constituency of Llanelly for 34 years and I believe by common consent did so with dedication and...
