Wayne David: Answer some questions.

Backbench Business: Defence Capability — [Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] (19 Oct 2017)

Wayne David: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Bone. This is an important debate, and I congratulate the hon. Member for Yeovil (Mr Fysh) on securing it. It comes at a very appropriate time, as has been mentioned, because the Ministry of Defence, the Cabinet Office, the Treasury and other Government Departments are currently conducting a review of national security capabilities. My...

Backbench Business: Defence Capability — [Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] (19 Oct 2017)

Wayne David: That highlights the short-term thinking of the present Government. What we really need is an industrial defence strategy that invests in the skills and capabilities of our own indigenous industries, so that when choices have to be made we can choose, quite rightly, to have our own capability enacted and not bought off-the-shelf from abroad. The Government regularly come out with their...

Backbench Business: Defence Capability — [Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] (19 Oct 2017)

Wayne David: I am about to wind up. I remind Members that the Conservative manifesto for the 2015 election said that the Army would not fall below 82,000 people. It has: the latest figures show that the Army is down to 76,680, which speaks for itself. There is a very real crisis. In conclusion, I ask the Minister for an honest statement about the real problems that our armed forces face today. Can we have...

Armed Forces Pay — [Steve McCabe in the Chair] (14 Sep 2017)

Wayne David: Will the Minister give way?

Armed Forces Pay — [Steve McCabe in the Chair] (14 Sep 2017)

Wayne David: The Minister is hinting at something important, but I would like clarification. He talks about greater flexibility for the Armed Forces Pay Review Body. Is he suggesting that were that greater flexibility to produce a recommendation for a significant increase for the armed forces, the Government would accept that immediately, without question?

Armed Forces Pay — [Steve McCabe in the Chair] (14 Sep 2017)

Wayne David: As someone with a distinguished service record, does the Minister personally think that remuneration in the armed forces is adequate? What is his personal view?

Armed Forces Pay — [Steve McCabe in the Chair] (14 Sep 2017)

Wayne David: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr McCabe. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Portsmouth South (Stephen Morgan) on making his second maiden speech. His eloquent words show strongly that he is a stout supporter of the interests of his constituents—particularly the armed forces and the Navy. It is particularly appropriate that we are holding this Westminster...

Armed Forces Pay — [Steve McCabe in the Chair] (14 Sep 2017)

Wayne David: I hear what the hon. Gentleman is saying, and there is a strong argument for it, but it would be unfortunate if we allowed that issue, important as it may be, to distract us from the central issue before us this afternoon, which is our request—it is a cross-party request, I hope—for the Government to comprehensively lift their 1% pay restraint on the public sector, including the...

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

Wayne David: Although I campaigned and argued for this country to remain a part of the European Union, I fully accept that that is not the majority view of the country. But I would argue that this is the wrong way to leave the European Union. This is not a general enabling Bill; it is a poorly thought-out, complex and undemocratic piece of legislation. One of the most fundamental problems with the Bill is...

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

Wayne David: There are many speakers, as we have heard, and I am sorry, but I would rather press on. In the White Paper of March 2017, it was stated that there would be a significant increase in the decision-making powers of the devolved institutions. That was there in black and white. It also intimated that former EU frameworks would be subject to decisions involving the devolved Governments, but such is...

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

Wayne David: We are not talking about notional, theoretical powers; we are talking about actual powers on the statute book, and about whether one institution or another is able to enact laws according to that legislation. There is a big difference between what was in the White Paper and what is in the legislation before us. What is more, undemocratic changes have been introduced without even a modicum of...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill (7 Sep 2017)

Wayne David: Does the hon. Gentleman agree that it would be simple and straightforward for the Government to accept the reality of devolution and that where there is the repatriation of powers from Brussels in devolved areas they should go directly to the devolved institutions?
