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?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill (7 Sep 2017)

Wayne David: Will the Secretary of State give way?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill (7 Sep 2017)

Wayne David: Will the Secretary of State give way?

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Economic Opportunities: South Wales and the South-west (6 Sep 2017)

Wayne David: Further to the Secretary of State’s first answer, will he give a categorical commitment that all areas in Wales that are in receipt of European structural funds will continue to be eligible in the near future?

Combat Compensation (20 Jul 2017)

Wayne David: Rather than excluding claimants in their best interests, would it not be better for there to be a choice on whether to pursue the case through the route suggested, with the MOD, or to take independent legal advice?

Combat Compensation (20 Jul 2017)

Wayne David: Will the Minister take an intervention on that point?

Combat Compensation (20 Jul 2017)

Wayne David: I am so pleased you said that, Mr Gapes. I was not going to introduce party politics into the debate, but as the Minister has done so, I want to make it absolutely clear that the Opposition want fairness and transparency, but that we also recognise that we live in a parliamentary democracy in which the rule of law is a cornerstone. I understand the operational necessities of conflict, but it...

Combat Compensation (20 Jul 2017)

Wayne David: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Gapes. To be honest, I was not best pleased when I realised that I had to come to this sitting of Westminster Hall, right at the end of a parliamentary term, but when I realised what issue was to be considered, my attitude soon changed. We owe a great deal of gratitude to my hon. Friend the Member for Wythenshawe and Sale East (Mike Kane)...

Contaminated Blood (20 Jul 2017)

Wayne David: Health is a devolved matter, so can the Minister give the House a commitment that there will be maximum co-operation with all the devolved institutions across the UK?

Electoral Commission Committee: Electoral Regulations (Compliance) (20 Jul 2017)

Wayne David: Whether the Commission is undertaking a review of political parties’ compliance with electoral regulations during the 2017 general election.

Electoral Commission Committee: Electoral Regulations (Compliance) (20 Jul 2017)

Wayne David: I thank my hon. Friend for her response. She should be aware that serious allegations have been made about the use of a call centre in Neath by the Conservative party during the general election campaign. I want to tell the House that I have heard from the Electoral Commission, which has stated in writing that South Wales police are formally considering the allegations.

Petition - Climate Change Objectives and Obligations: Tesco House, Cardiff: Job Losses (19 Jul 2017)

Wayne David: Does my hon. Friend share my disgust at the fact that many of the employees, including constituents of mine in Caerphilly, only learned about the closure on social media?
