European Union (Withdrawal) Bill (7 Sep 2017)

David Jones: As my hon. Friend the Member for Stone (Sir William Cash) pointed out, this is an historic Bill by any standards. In fact, it is hard to think of a clause 1 of any Bill more momentous than: “The European Communities Act 1972 is repealed on exit day.” But beyond that, it is possibly not such a dramatic piece of legislation. I was quite pleased when the original working title of...

Exiting the European Union: Topical Questions (7 Sep 2017)

David Jones: Does the Minister agree that the system of secondary legislation contemplated by the Bill that we will be debating later today provides the best and most flexible means of ensuring that the United Kingdom is left with a coherent statute book when we leave the European Union? Does he not also agree that there will be general bemusement in this country that the Opposition are seeking to oppose...

EU Exit Negotiations (5 Sep 2017)

David Jones: Article 50 provides in terms that the negotiations in which my right hon. Friend is engaged should take into account the framework for the future relationship between the departing member state and the European Union, but, as we have heard, the EU refuses to address that question. When he next sits down with Michel Barnier, would my right hon. Friend draw to his attention the fact that he is...

Written Answers — Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Nuclear Reactors (5 Sep 2017)

David Jones: To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, what recent assessment he has made of the potential contribution of small modular nuclear reactors to UK energy supply.

Euratom Membership — [James Gray in the Chair] (12 Jul 2017)

David Jones: I commend the hon. Member for Ynys Môn (Albert Owen) on securing this important debate. The nuclear industry is important to the north Wales region, as it is to the whole country. However, I take issue with the hon. Gentleman because he said that the decision to leave the Euratom treaty was taken on political rather than legal grounds. He will know from the helpful briefing note...

Euratom Membership — [James Gray in the Chair] (12 Jul 2017)

David Jones: The Government’s position has always been that there should be an implementation period, and I am sure that my hon. Friend the Minister will acknowledge that and outline what the Government will do. My purpose in speaking in the debate is simply to point out that the suggestion that the prime considerations are political is essentially unfounded.

UK Elections: Abuse and Intimidation — [David Hanson in the Chair] (12 Jul 2017)

David Jones: I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Carmarthen West and South Pembrokeshire (Simon Hart) on securing this debate. I have stood in six general elections and I can say that, frankly, this was by a long chalk the most unpleasant one in which I have ever participated. I have no doubt at all that much of the behaviour that my hon. Friend outlined was co-ordinated, because the patterns of...

Euratom Membership — [James Gray in the Chair] (12 Jul 2017)

David Jones: The hon. Gentleman mentioned me. He has heard what I have to say. I repeat that the advice that DExEU received was as I have outlined this morning. Does he accept that?

Euratom Membership — [James Gray in the Chair] (12 Jul 2017)

David Jones: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Written Answers — Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Tidal Lagoons Independent Review (5 Jul 2017)

David Jones: To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, what the timetable is for his Department to complete its assessment of the recommendations in the Hendry Review on the role of tidal lagoons, published in December 2016.

Exiting the European Union: English Regions (27 Apr 2017)

David Jones: Mr Speaker, it is nice to be here. The Government are committed to securing a deal that works for the entire United Kingdom, including all parts of England. The Department for Exiting the European Union and the Department for Communities and Local Government are working closely with the Local Government Association and regional partners across the country to understand clearly the issues...

Exiting the European Union: English Regions (27 Apr 2017)

David Jones: The Government are committed to securing a deal that works for the whole United Kingdom, including every part of England. DExEU Ministers have visited Yorkshire on a number of occasions, and that includes the Secretary of State’s visit in November. I am sure he will be willing to consider another visit after the election.

Exiting the European Union: English Regions (27 Apr 2017)

David Jones: After the United Kingdom leaves the European Union, we will give full consideration to further devolution to bring powers as close as possible to all parts of the country. We are committed to securing a deal that works for the north-east, and Ministers have visited every part of England, and that includes a recent visit to Sunderland and Peterlee to talk to local people about manufacturing issues.

Exiting the European Union: English Regions (27 Apr 2017)

David Jones: My right hon. Friend has set out the Government’s position admirably.

Exiting the European Union: English Regions (27 Apr 2017)

David Jones: On the contrary, we deal regularly with manufacturing industry. Indeed, I recently had a meeting with the EEF that was very successful. The fact of the matter is that we are intending to seek the best possible free trade agreement with the continuing European Union. Our position will be, however, unlike that of Labour, that no deal is better than a bad deal. I find it extraordinary that the...

Exiting the European Union: Devolved Matters (27 Apr 2017)

David Jones: We have regular discussions with ministerial colleagues, including my right hon. and learned Friend the Attorney General. We fully respect the Sewel convention and have been working closely with the devolved Administrations, particularly through the Joint Ministerial Committee on EU Negotiations.

Exiting the European Union: Devolved Matters (27 Apr 2017)

David Jones: Similarly, Mr Speaker, may I express my best wishes to the hon. Lady for the future? The question of whether a legislative consent motion will be required for the great repeal Bill will of course depend on the form and content of the great repeal Bill, which will be published in the next Parliament.

Exiting the European Union: Devolved Matters (27 Apr 2017)

David Jones: Yes, I did note that. The position is quite clear—it is member states that negotiate with the European Union. Given that this country voted as a single country to leave the European Union, we should be expecting the support of the Scottish National party and not what it is doing at the moment.

Exiting the European Union: Devolved Matters (27 Apr 2017)

David Jones: It is very likely that the necessary competencies will be created to allow the devolved Assemblies themselves to make those statutory instruments.

Exiting the European Union: Devolved Matters (27 Apr 2017)

David Jones: Yes, my hon. Friend is entirely right. Any such statutory instruments would be made pursuant to statute, which would of course go through this House and the other place in the normal way.
