Foreign and Commonwealth Office: NATO Allies (4 Feb 2020)

Wayne David: Turkey’s relationship with its NATO allies is becoming ever more strained. Turkey’s incursion into northern Syria, which we have just heard about, and an increasingly close relationship with Russia are two clear examples of how tension is being created within the alliance by Turkey. As we are a leading member of NATO, how do the Government think NATO should respond to the situation?

Defence: Defence Exports (3 Feb 2020)

Wayne David: Can the Secretary of State indicate when his Government plan to introduce the excellent recommendations in the report by the right hon. Member for Ludlow (Philip Dunne)?

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill: Rights related to residence: application deadline and temporary protection (22 Jan 2020)

Wayne David: Does my hon. Friend agree that despite what the Government are saying, the impression is being given that they wish to undermine the Sewel convention through their act of opposing this amendment?

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill: Rights related to residence: application deadline and temporary protection (22 Jan 2020)

Wayne David: Given the Secretary of State’s reference to the letter to the Welsh Government and the Welsh Minister, how does he square the circle of wanting, on the one hand, to reinforce the principles of Sewel and so on, but on the other, wanting to amend the legislation to withdraw the commitment?

UK Special Forces: Iraq and Afghanistan (7 Jan 2020)

Wayne David: The hon. Gentleman is making a powerful statement, and I am sure all Members will take note of what he says. Does he agree this serves to highlight that we need some parliamentary mechanism to delve into and investigate such accusations and claims?

Middle East: Security (7 Jan 2020)

Wayne David: There are clearly differences between France and Germany on the one hand and the United States on the other. What action are the Government taking to make sure that our international allies and NATO once again speak and act with one voice and one action?

Major Incident in Essex (28 Oct 2019)

Wayne David: I thank the Home Secretary for her statement. A number of the 39 victims may well have come from Vietnam. If so, may I, as chair of the all-party group on Vietnam, offer my heartfelt sympathies to the victims and families? We know that the Prime Minister of Vietnam has announced an inquiry into human trafficking in his country. May I have a commitment from the Home Secretary that her...

Business of the House (22 Oct 2019)

Wayne David: Given that the Prime Minister decided to obey the law and apply to the European Union for an extension, if the European Union grants an extension, will the Leader of the House commit to coming back to the House with a new programme motion so that there can be adequate consideration of the Bill?

Defence: Defence Industry (21 Oct 2019)

Wayne David: I welcome the new Ministers to their posts. A little more than three months ago, a prominent Conservative Member of this House said: “We must continue to hammer home the importance of sovereign capability”—[Official Report, 16 July 2019; Vol. 663, c. 277WH.]. That was, of course, the new defence procurement Minister, speaking before she was promoted. Thinking about the fleet solid...

Business of the House (17 Oct 2019)

Wayne David: In March 2013, Mr Anthony O’Sullivan, the chief executive of Caerphilly County Borough Council, was suspended by the council and put on special leave. At long last, Mr O’Sullivan has now been dismissed by the council for gross misconduct, but for over six years he has been on full pay and has received over £800,000 from the council, even though he has done no work. The council has had no...

HMRC Impact Analysis: Customs (8 Oct 2019)

Wayne David: The extra administrative costs for filling in customs forms alone for businesses will be £15 billion per year. This contrasts markedly with the Prime Minister’s claim that if we left the EU with no deal, we would save £1 billion per month. Does the Minister agree with me that there is a growing chasm between the rhetoric of a Prime Minister and the reality of a no-deal Brexit?

Compliance with the European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 2) Act 2019 (26 Sep 2019)

Wayne David: A few moments ago the Minister said that the Benn Act was unclear. Will he explain to the House why he thinks it is unclear?

Legal Advice: Prorogation (25 Sep 2019)

Wayne David: I presume that following yesterday’s Supreme Court judgment the Prime Minister got in touch with Buckingham Palace and offered his apology to Her Majesty the Queen for giving unlawful advice. Did the Attorney General speak to the Prime Minister before that conversation took place?

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 2) Act 2019 (Rule of Law) (9 Sep 2019)

Wayne David: This is about the rule of law, and we should be clear—there should be no ifs or buts about it—that, no matter how powerful and self-important they might feel, everyone should obey the law.

Prorogation (Disclosure of Communications) (9 Sep 2019)

Wayne David: Is my right hon. and learned Friend aware of the recording of the Defence Secretary, in which he states his view as to why prorogation is really happening? It is somewhat different from what the Prime Minister has put forward.

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Withdrawal Agreement (4 Sep 2019)

Wayne David: What recent economic assessment he has made of the potential effect on Wales of the implementation of the withdrawal agreement.

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Withdrawal Agreement (4 Sep 2019)

Wayne David: Given that 90% of Welsh lamb is exported to other countries in the European Union, does the Secretary of State still believe that, in the event of a no-deal Brexit, a viable alternative market will be Japan?

Election of Select Committee Chairs (Notice of Election): Sheep Farming: No-deal EU Exit (3 Sep 2019)

Wayne David: Is not the heart of the problem the fact that lamb would not be competitive if it had a 48% tariff placed on it? That would be an absolutely ridiculous situation. The Government might talk about short-term subsidies to help the immediate situation, but that is no way to save the industry as a whole.

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Veterans: Recognition (8 Jul 2019)

Wayne David: The importance of support for veterans should unite the whole House. Given the appalling track record of outsourcing, will the Secretary of State explain why her Government have invited private contractors to bid to run the medal office and certain veterans services?
