Leaving the Eu: Scotland and Wales Continuity Bills (18 Apr 2018)

David Davies: Does my right hon. and learned Friend agree that the people of Scotland have voted to stay in the United Kingdom, the United Kingdom has voted to leave the European Union, the people of Wales have voted to leave the EU, and he is trying to implement the democratic will of the British people?

Fly-tipping — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (17 Apr 2018)

David Davies: Will my hon. Friend look at my suggestion to move some of the liability towards people who produce waste? Virtually every Member present agrees that whatever we are doing is not currently enough to deter people from committing this crime.

Fly-tipping — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (17 Apr 2018)

David Davies: I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Tiverton and Honiton (Neil Parish) on securing this important debate and echo many of the points made by Members across the Chamber. We certainly do need tougher police action and tougher penalties for people who are caught fly-tipping, and we need to support local authorities. I am sure we would all welcome more funding if we can find it. I want...

David Davies: To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, pursuant to the Answer of 1 March 2018 to question 128954, what assessment he has made of whether as a result of increased interconnection (a) net employment in the GB electricity generating sector will increase or decrease and (b) UK GDP contribution from the GB electricity generating sector will increase or decrease...

Other Proceedings: Welsh Affairs (19 Mar 2018)

David Davies: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Glasgow North (Patrick Grady). I did not agree with much he said, except for his comments about real ale, but I support the fact that all Members of this Parliament can be proud to be part of one great United Kingdom and be welcome to speak, which is why I am proud to be wearing my Union Jack cufflinks today. I am grateful to all members of the...

Other Proceedings: Welsh Affairs (19 Mar 2018)

David Davies: That is actually a very fair point, and it cannot be put down to money either, because more money is spent per head on the population in Wales than in England. Of course, Members of all Opposition parties want to talk about what they call austerity. I call it trying to balance the books. I call it a recognition that, when we have a debt of £1.7 trillion and are adding to that by...

Other Proceedings: Welsh Affairs (19 Mar 2018)

David Davies: It is a bit unfair to suggest that anyone is destitute, but the hon. Lady is right: many women have been affected by the changes to pension law. They say they were not contacted by the previous Labour Government, who were in power for 13 years, when many of these changes we introduced. I do not know whether Labour Ministers contacted them—there are different sides to the story—but...

Other Proceedings: Welsh Affairs (19 Mar 2018)

David Davies: I look forward to seeing whether those predictions are any more accurate than the many other predictions that have been proved completely inaccurate since the referendum. Let me return to matters that we are not allowed to discuss in the Welsh Affairs Committee. I should very much like to have the right to discuss education, for instance.

Other Proceedings: Welsh Affairs (19 Mar 2018)

David Davies: The hon. Gentleman will be aware that we were paying about £18 billion a year to be a member of the European Union. Even if the £39 billion Brexit divorce bill figure is correct—I am prepared to accept that it is—it represents about two years’ membership of the European Union. If that is the price that we have to pay for a good deal, and if other Members support...

Other Proceedings: Welsh Affairs (19 Mar 2018)

David Davies: I am certainly not doing—

Other Proceedings: Welsh Affairs (19 Mar 2018)

David Davies: I welcome the fact that everyone feels passionately about this issue, but I suggest that the hon. Gentleman look at what his own Labour Education Minister is saying about Labour’s education record in Wales.

Other Proceedings: Welsh Affairs (19 Mar 2018)

David Davies: I have been given only 10 minutes, and I would like to move on to the subject of Brexit, which, after all, is a matter of some interest to all of us at the moment. I commend my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union for the enormous amount of extra power that he will give the Welsh Assembly and the Scottish Parliament, although, if I were anything less than a...

Other Proceedings: Welsh Affairs (19 Mar 2018)

David Davies: My right hon. Friend makes the point very well indeed. A lot of people living in the Forest of Dean are served by the Welsh NHS and are taking legal action because they are desperate to be served by Jeremy Hunt’s Conservative-run NHS in England. That is absolutely true. They have no say over what Labour Ministers are doing, despite being inflicted with the Welsh Labour-run NHS.

Other Proceedings: Welsh Affairs (19 Mar 2018)

David Davies: Will the hon. Lady give way?

Other Proceedings: Welsh Affairs (19 Mar 2018)

David Davies: I am grateful. Let me agree with the point that the hon. Member for Clwyd South (Susan Elan Jones) made and emphasise the importance of politicians of all parties respecting the results of referendums.

Other Proceedings: Welsh Affairs (19 Mar 2018)

David Davies: Does my right hon. Friend agree that if Opposition Members were serious about getting the project off the ground, they would recommend to the First Minister of Wales that he accept the invitation to appear before the Welsh Affairs Committee and explain the apparent gift of £200 million that he briefed the Western Mail on, instead of hiding behind the excuse that he will not come for some...
