Brexit Negotiations (11 Dec 2017)

David Jones: I congratulate the Prime Minister on what has been achieved thus far, which we must hope will translate into mutually beneficial withdrawal and trade agreements, but given that that cannot be guaranteed, will she give instructions for the sum set aside by the Chancellor in his Budget last month to be expended on upgrading our customs infrastructure, in order to secure smooth international...

Israel: Us Embassy (7 Dec 2017)

David Jones: President Trump has said that the United States remains committed to a two-state solution, but will my right hon. Friend confirm that the British Government will be pointing out to this country’s strongest ally that moving the American embassy to Jerusalem will be interpreted by many as American acquiescence in Israel’s illegal programme of settlement on the west bank, which is...

EU Exit Negotiations (5 Dec 2017)

David Jones: Does my right hon. Friend agree that maintaining the integrity of our country requires that there should never be any internal borders, economic or otherwise, within the territory of the United Kingdom?

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

David Jones: No, but I can identify several people who have denied its existence. Clause 11 seeks to ensure that the integrity of the internal market is not compromised by preserving the restrictions that prevail in respect of EU law. It is quite clear that the proposals in clause 11 have caused immoderate anger in certain quarters. The SNP Scottish First Minister and the Labour Welsh First Minister...

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

David Jones: I remind the hon. Lady that I am also from one of the devolved countries, so I understand her point and I understand that a timescale is needed. My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Brexit has always made it clear that the devolved authorities will ultimately have considerably enhanced powers after this process is complete. Mr Nigel Smith has been extensively quoted in this debate,...

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

David Jones: It is a great pleasure to be asked to address the Committee as a lonely Welsh voice in this Scottish enclave south of the Gangway. I should like to say how impressed I am with my new Scottish colleagues, and with the way in which they stand up for their constituencies and for Scotland. It was always predictable that clause 11 would be one of the more contentious clauses in the Bill, given...

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

David Jones: I hear the hon. Gentleman saying from a sedentary position that there is no such thing. The fact is that there is such a thing, and furthermore, after we leave the European Union, the existence of such an internal market will become ever clearer.

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

David Jones: I have never been to Perthshire but I am sure that it is a delightful place. In this country, we have four countries and three devolved bodies, which have competence in the area of economic development, among other things. The hon. Gentleman and I might be at odds on this, but I take the view that there is an United Kingdom internal market. He can come to the contrary conclusion if he wishes.

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

David Jones: Pursuing the same point, does the hon. Lady not accept that new clause 64(3), having provided that there should be no new frameworks created without the agreement of the devolved Administrations, would be a recipe for chaos, on the basis that if there were no such agreement, it would be impossible to create the frameworks that she seems to acknowledge as so desirable?

Exiting the Eu: Costs (29 Nov 2017)

David Jones: As my right hon. Friend pointed out, the Prime Minister made a fair and generous offer to the European Union in her Florence speech. Given that article 50 provides that the negotiations that are under way should take account of the future relationship between the United Kingdom and the European Union, does my right hon. Friend agree that it is high time that the European Union reciprocated...

Leaving the Eu: Sectoral Impact Assessments (28 Nov 2017)

David Jones: In all my hon. Friend’s dealings with his European Union counterparts, has he ever formed the view that they pay no heed to the proceedings of this House and, indeed, have no interest in the contents of any documents that may be produced for any of its Select Committees?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Retaining Enhanced Protection (15 Nov 2017)

David Jones: That may well be so, but I invite the hon. Lady to digest the terms of article 126 of the EEA agreement and then consider whether at the moment of our departure from the EU we will still be subject to the EEA agreement. I believe we will not. For the reasons I have outlined, I invite the hon. Member for Carmarthen East and Dinefwr not to press amendment 217, too.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Retaining Enhanced Protection (15 Nov 2017)

David Jones: Before the hon. Gentleman leaves his discussion of EEA membership, does he not accept that article 126 of the EEA agreement provides explicitly that the agreement applies only to members of the European Union and to the relevant members of EFTA? Given that we will be neither, how can it possibly apply to us?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Retaining Enhanced Protection (15 Nov 2017)

David Jones: I wish to speak about amendments 87 and 217, tabled by the hon. Member for Carmarthen East and Dinefwr (Jonathan Edwards) and his Plaid Cymru colleagues. Amendment 87 provides that the expression “EU-derived domestic legislation” in clause 2(2) should not include “any enactment of the United Kingdom Parliament which…applies to Wales and does not relate to matters...
