Energy in Wales — [Ian Paisley in the Chair] (14 Sep 2017)

Geraint Davies: rose—

Energy in Wales — [Ian Paisley in the Chair] (14 Sep 2017)

Geraint Davies: On a point of order, Mr Paisley. Is it in order for the Minister to refer directly to a comment that I made about the Government’s prevarication over three or four years about the cost of energy, which has created massive uncertainty in the business community, but not to allow me to intervene on that point?

Energy in Wales — [Ian Paisley in the Chair] (14 Sep 2017)

Geraint Davies: In the short time available, will the Minister say whether he has any idea when the decision will be made on the lagoon—not what it will be, but when it will be made? Will it be part of the clean growth plan?

Energy in Wales — [Ian Paisley in the Chair] (14 Sep 2017)

Geraint Davies: I was asking about the timetable, not the city deal.

Energy in Wales — [Ian Paisley in the Chair] (14 Sep 2017)

Geraint Davies: I am.

Energy in Wales — [Ian Paisley in the Chair] (14 Sep 2017)

Geraint Davies: I do not mean to take my hon. Friend off track, but I will just take him back to what he mentioned a moment ago about the cost of rail electrification to Swansea being put somewhere else. I just make the point that there are many of us across Swansea who want to hold the Conservatives to David Cameron’s promise to bring about electrification, and to keep that money in that project and...

Energy in Wales — [Ian Paisley in the Chair] (14 Sep 2017)

Geraint Davies: My hon. Friend, who is a great advocate for the lagoon, will know that the constitution of the Welsh Government contains a commitment to sustainable development. With talks about changing powers post-Brexit, does she agree that this is the time to move the power to take leadership of green projects with the resources from Westminster to Wales, so that we can get on with the job of delivering...

Energy in Wales — [Ian Paisley in the Chair] (14 Sep 2017)

Geraint Davies: Thank you very much, Mr Paisley. It is a great pleasure to follow the excellent speech made by my hon. Friend the Member for Ynys Môn (Albert Owen). As the Minister will know, within the next few weeks the Government will launch their clean growth plan. I very much hope that he will use all his energies to ensure that the Swansea bay tidal lagoon, the tidal lagoon planned for north...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: 2nd Day (11 Sep 2017)

Geraint Davies: I am pleased to follow the hon. Member for Ochil and South Perthshire (Luke Graham), who knows that people who voted for Brexit did so for a number of reasons. Some of them wanted, and expected, more money, which they were promised—£350 million a week—but now they face a debt of something like £50 billion. Some of them voted leave because they thought that they would...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: 2nd Day (11 Sep 2017)

Geraint Davies: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Transport Infrastructure (6 Sep 2017)

Geraint Davies: Following a delegation I led in 2014 of four councils, two universities, many AMs and MPs, industry and Admiral, the then Prime Minister, David Cameron, pledged to extend electrification to Swansea, saying it would have a huge economic impact on developing employment in an area of neglected infrastructure, so will the Secretary of State stand up to the Prime Minister, as the previous...

Points of Order (20 Jul 2017)

Geraint Davies: On a point of order, Madam Deputy Speaker. The Government are required by the High Court to publish an air quality strategy next week because they are in breach of European Union air quality standards, which has led to 40,000 premature deaths and costs £20 billion a year. Yesterday some 60 MPs wrote to me in support of a clean air Bill asking the Secretary of State for Environment, Food...

Points of Order (20 Jul 2017)

Geraint Davies: I asked her about another matter.

Business of the House (20 Jul 2017)

Geraint Davies: On rail electrification, it is clear that the Transport Secretary has broken the word of the then Prime Minister, David Cameron, who gave us an assurance that there would be electrification. Larger, heavier diesel trains will now run to Cardiff and switch on their diesel engines there, which is not environmentally friendly. Will the Leader of the House admit to the House that the Public...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Income Tax/National Insurance (18 Jul 2017)

Geraint Davies: The Minister will know that as people go into the higher tax threshold they stop paying more national insurance, so would one of the impacts of merging the two be to reveal that the British tax system is not as progressive as people think, and make the case for those with the broadest shoulders to pay more?

Economy and Jobs (29 Jun 2017)

Geraint Davies: My right hon. Friend will be aware that both the International Monetary Fund and the OECD have said that there is a relationship between inequality and growth—namely, the more inequality, the less growth. Does he not agree that it is not just unfair but unwise to pursue a policy that has led to Britain having the greatest inequality in Europe, rising at the fastest rate? If we were...

Debate on the Address: Health, Social Care and Security (28 Jun 2017)

Geraint Davies: Will the Home Secretary give way?

Debate on the Address: Health, Social Care and Security (28 Jun 2017)

Geraint Davies: Does the Home Secretary accept that talk of Islamic extremism, in particular, is in danger of being misinterpreted as meaning “too much Islam” when in fact, of course, “Islam” is the Arabic word for peace; that the problem is those who pervert, distort and blaspheme in the name of Islam; and that the true Islam was shown by Imam Mohammed, who stood in front of the...

Debate on the Address: [1st Day] (21 Jun 2017)

Geraint Davies: I agree with the hon. Gentleman’s position on unfettered access to the single market, but would he like to comment on what the Prime Minister has said? She said that no deal is better than a bad deal, but the Chancellor has said that no deal is very bad. Both cannot be true—otherwise, a very bad deal would be better than a bad deal. Does the hon. Gentleman agree that we need to...

Universal Credit — [Geraint Davies in the Chair] (19 Apr 2017)

Geraint Davies: The debate will go on until 4.22 pm. I call Dr Whiteford.
