Military Action Overseas: Parliamentary Approval (17 Apr 2018)

Geraint Davies: The right hon. Gentleman might be interested to know that a Syrian doctor in Swansea approached me to say that his wife’s family had been involved in a gas attack in which their two-year-old died in front of them. He says that the doctors in Douma have been told by the Syrians at the point of a gun: “Unless you give a testimony that there was not a gas attack, doctor, we will...

Military Action Overseas: Parliamentary Approval (17 Apr 2018)

Geraint Davies: Will the Prime Minister give way?

Social Mobility and the Economy — [Geraint Davies in the Chair] (28 Mar 2018)

Geraint Davies: Because of the discipline and rigour of Members, I am now able to raise the limit to five minutes. Somebody has kindly pulled out of the debate.

Social Mobility and the Economy — [Geraint Davies in the Chair] (28 Mar 2018)

Geraint Davies: I am sorry about that.

Social Mobility and the Economy — [Geraint Davies in the Chair] (28 Mar 2018)

Geraint Davies: Finished with eight seconds to go. Excellent.

Social Mobility and the Economy — [Geraint Davies in the Chair] (28 Mar 2018)

Geraint Davies: Order. I invite Gillian Keegan to try to get below four minutes.

Social Mobility and the Economy — [Geraint Davies in the Chair] (28 Mar 2018)

Geraint Davies: May I say at the outset that there are 11 speakers, so I will impose a time limit? I call Justine Greening to move the motion.

Social Mobility and the Economy — [Geraint Davies in the Chair] (28 Mar 2018)

Geraint Davies: Order. I am going to need to immediately impose a time limit of four minutes, which I may need to reduce if there are interventions. I call Sarah Champion to set an example by speaking for four minutes or less.

EU Referendum: Electoral Law (27 Mar 2018)

Geraint Davies: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. This debate has questioned whether the Brexit vote may have occurred illegally—or illegal activity may have affected the outcome—and therefore it questions the legitimacy of the vote itself and subsequent activity in this Chamber. In your view, what should be the next steps, in the event that it is found categorically that illegal activity may have...

EU Referendum: Electoral Law (27 Mar 2018)

Geraint Davies: Will the Minister give way?

EU Referendum: Electoral Law (27 Mar 2018)

Geraint Davies: Does the right hon. Gentleman agree that if Ministers—I am thinking specifically of the Foreign Secretary and the Environment Secretary—are implicated in any illegal activities and are the dopers in the analogy he is using, they should not be above the law, and that when the police are doing the investigation, they should not be intimidated from putting forward a legal case...

EU Referendum: Electoral Law (27 Mar 2018)

Geraint Davies: It is absolutely amazing that the Foreign Secretary is not in his place, given the gravity of the accusations, his personal centrality to them and the pivotal part he played. He has said that the allegations are “ludicrous” and farcical, that the vote was won legally and that there was fair play. Frankly, what we have already heard and know casts those basic assumptions into...

EU Referendum: Electoral Law (27 Mar 2018)

Geraint Davies: I certainly agree with my hon. Friend’s last point. The Electoral Commission and the Information Commissioner are going to have a great deal of difficulty evaluating Cambridge Analytica’s role and the dirty money involved. Russia is a much bigger question. There are questions around whether the targeted bombing of innocent civilians in Syria in the run-up to Brexit, in the...

EU Referendum: Electoral Law (27 Mar 2018)

Geraint Davies: I will give way, but just let me finish this point. People seem to have this misconception that the Brexit result was not close, but I put it to you, Mr Speaker, that if we ushered 33 people into a room, and 17 voted one way and 16 the other, that is the most marginal vote that we could get. That vote could be swayed by Cambridge Analytica and by the other forms of manipulation. It is in...

EU Referendum: Electoral Law (27 Mar 2018)

Geraint Davies: That is an excellent point very well made. Obviously, it brings into question what further powers those commissioners or others should have to secure the information that they need to bring their legitimate concerns to a conclusion.

EU Referendum: Electoral Law (27 Mar 2018)

Geraint Davies: Well, I am profoundly concerned about that. Again, facts are emerging day by day, and they need to be forensically examined and it is very important that the resources are there to do that. That sort of information coming forward gives us greater reason to be enormously concerned about this. That is why I am so saddened to see that the Government Benches are empty, when the essence of our...

EU Referendum: Electoral Law (27 Mar 2018)

Geraint Davies: Yes, as a point of information—

EU Referendum: Electoral Law (27 Mar 2018)

Geraint Davies: One moment. I am still dealing with the previous intervention. For the record, the Government Benches are virtually empty. They may be 1% full—I do not know—but, frankly, it is pathetic. I am very grateful to have the opportunity to point out that the Government do not seem to care about the integrity of democracy and the law.

EU Referendum: Electoral Law (27 Mar 2018)

Geraint Davies: If the hon. Gentleman is suggesting that because one side spent more than the other side, it is all right for the other side to behave illegally, it is not a very persuasive argument. This behaviour—the clandestine manipulation of people’s views through Facebook and other things plus the dirty money—casts into question the very integrity of our democracy and the decision...

EU Referendum: Electoral Law (27 Mar 2018)

Geraint Davies: That is correct.
