Mineworkers’ Pension Scheme (5 Dec 2017)

Wayne David: As my hon. Friend has said, the surplus gets to the heart of the issue. Does he accept that the surplus the Government have received is far in excess of their own expectations for what could have happened?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: “Creation of UK-wide frameworks (4 Dec 2017)

Wayne David: But the very fact that there is no timetable surely gives weight to the argument that what we are seeing here is a crude power grab.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (29 Nov 2017)

Wayne David: Sharon Jones is a constituent who had a malignant brain tumour removed some 20 years ago, leaving her with excruciating headaches and severe pain in her neck and shoulders. Sharon has been in receipt of employment and support allowance, and the Department for Work and Pensions accepts that Sharon is not fit for work. However, she has now been placed in the work-related activity group and her...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Hawk Aircraft: Overseas Promotion (27 Nov 2017)

Wayne David: On the day that the Government are launching their industrial strategy, this country is in danger of losing its sovereign defence industrial capability, not least in aerospace.

Wayne David: Will the Minister give way?

UK Amphibious Capability — [James Gray in the Chair] (21 Nov 2017)

Wayne David: I thank the Minister for giving way. She has talked about speculation, but will she confirm or deny the press reports that the new Secretary of State for Defence has asked the Treasury for more money?

UK Amphibious Capability — [James Gray in the Chair] (21 Nov 2017)

Wayne David: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Gray. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Stoke-on-Trent North (Ruth Smeeth) on securing this important debate and on her first-rate speech. This is one of the few Westminster Hall debates I can recall in which there has been unanimity—well, virtual unanimity—among contributing Members, a point made well by my hon....

UK Amphibious Capability — [James Gray in the Chair] (21 Nov 2017)

Wayne David: My hon. Friend makes his point well; I agree absolutely. Let us also bear in mind that the marines have recently lost 400 personnel, and it is rumoured that the newly refitted HMS Ocean will be sold to Brazil for a very modest £80 million. That brings us to where we are today. We learned from the press last week that the new Secretary of State for Defence did not believe that the cuts to...

Defence Aerospace Industrial Strategy (16 Nov 2017)

Wayne David: I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Stoke-on-Trent North (Ruth Smeeth) on her opening speech. The debate has been important because of the significance of the defence aerospace industry to this country and to our nation’s defence. I wish to make two points. The second is about the need for a well-thought-out industrial strategy for the sector. First, though, I wish to address...

Puppy Smuggling (1 Nov 2017)

That is an issue that we cannot get away from.

Opposition Day - [4TH Allotted Day]: Armed Forces Pay (1 Nov 2017)

Wayne David: On a point of order, Mr Deputy Speaker.

Opposition Day - [4TH Allotted Day]: Armed Forces Pay (1 Nov 2017)

Wayne David: On a point of order, Mr Deputy Speaker. The Minister is being economical with the truth. But what is absolutely outrageous is that the subject under consideration is pay rises for the armed forces, but Ministers have hardly referred to it.

Opposition Day - [4TH Allotted Day]: Armed Forces Pay (1 Nov 2017)

Wayne David: We have had a very good debate today. Members of the House have made excellent contributions, but I do not have time to refer to them—I apologise. It is true to say that our armed forces face enormous problems. They have a huge problem with recruitment and retention and face the scandalous inadequacy of the levels of remuneration for the men and women who are prepared to put their lives...

Opposition Day - [4TH Allotted Day]: Armed Forces Pay (1 Nov 2017)

Wayne David: I am sorry, but time is short. Another huge problem is the levels of pay in the armed forces. As the most recent pay review body report indicates, members of the armed forces “feel their pay is being unfairly constrained in a period when costs are rising, private sector earnings are starting to recover, and the high tempo demands on the Armed Forces have not diminished.”

Opposition Day - [4TH Allotted Day]: Armed Forces Pay (1 Nov 2017)

Wayne David: Time is limited, as the Minister knows. I respectfully ask him to sit down. The Government say that they are introducing flexibility in the future pay regime, but let us be clear. The Armed Forces Pay Review Body stated in its 2017 report that the former Chief Secretary to the Treasury sent it a letter to say that the Government’s policy of pay restraint remained in place. The letter...
