Leaving the Eu: Negotiations (10 Jul 2018)

David Davies: Not only did we have a referendum, but we had a general election in which more than 85% of the public voted for Brexit-supporting parties. Around 5% voted for the Liberal Democrats. What right do they have to tell us what the people are thinking? The people are certainly not agreeing with the Lib Dems.

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Offenders: Help to Find Employment (10 Jul 2018)

David Davies: What steps his Department is taking to help offenders find employment upon leaving prison.

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Offenders: Help to Find Employment (10 Jul 2018)

David Davies: I thank my right hon. Friend’s Department for the interest it has already shown in a project to enable serving prisoners to undertake the theoretical exams required for a career in the haulage industry, which is currently very short of workers. As a result of the meetings I have had with the Department, a pilot project is taking place in south Wales. I thank Ministers for that and ask...

Energy Policy (25 Jun 2018)

David Davies: Does my right hon. Friend agree that the relentless criticism by environmental groups and Opposition Members of the £92.50 per megawatt-hour strike price for Hinkley—not least in this House a few weeks ago—has made it virtually impossible for any Government ever to agree to pay a higher strike price than £92.50, and that this project was coming in at a significantly...

Gosport Independent Panel: Publication of Report: Points of Order (20 Jun 2018)

David Davies: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. Is it in order for former Members of the Houses of Parliament to take a seat at the Conservative table in the Tea Room and plot against the Government that they were once a part of? Would not those former Members be better off tending to their moats?

House of Lords: Abolition — [Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] (18 Jun 2018)

David Davies: During the early part of the 19th century, the power in this country began to shift away from those whose right to make legislation was inherited through an accident of birth, who generally sat in the House of Lords. Instead, it began slowly and imperfectly to go towards those who had won the support of the public in some way and who, therefore, were more likely—although not...

House of Lords: Abolition — [Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] (18 Jun 2018)

David Davies: We have unicameral Chambers in Scotland and Wales. We may or may not have issues with the Welsh Assembly or the Scottish Parliament, but it all seems to work perfectly well.

Exiting the European Union: Rights, Standards and Protections (14 Jun 2018)

David Davies: Does my hon. Friend agree that one of the most fundamental rights is to decide who determines our legislation and where that legislation comes from, and that that is exactly the right that we are protecting when we listen to what the people have told us and withdraw from the European Union?

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Air Pollution: Chepstow (13 Jun 2018)

David Davies: Whether he has had discussions with local councillors in Monmouthshire on air pollution in Chepstow; and if he will make a statement.

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Air Pollution: Chepstow (13 Jun 2018)

David Davies: I thank my right hon. Friend for the interest that he has taken in this issue. Will he continue to press the Welsh Labour Government to fulfil their obligations by building a Chepstow bypass and showing the same commitment to clean air and a better environment that is being shown by this Conservative Government?

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Economic Growth and Emissions (12 Jun 2018)

David Davies: Does my right hon. Friend agree that the recent announcement of support for Wylfa underpins the Government’s commitment not only to reducing emissions, but to economic growth, not least in Wales?

Nuclear Power (4 Jun 2018)

David Davies: Has my right hon. Friend noted a cross-party view in the House that £92.50 is the absolute maximum we should be paying for energy generation, and will this feature in his deliberations on further energy projects?

Royal Assent: NHS Outsourcing and Privatisation (23 May 2018)

David Davies: I am sure that my hon. Friends the Members for Berwickshire, Roxburgh and Selkirk (John Lamont) and for East Renfrewshire (Paul Masterton) were simply trying to find out why the hon. Member for Glasgow South West (Chris Stephens) did not want to talk about the £70 million-odd a year that the SNP Government in Scotland are spending on outsourcing, but we will leave that for another day....

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Leaving the EU: Welsh Economy (2 May 2018)

David Davies: My right hon. Friend will know that Labour’s economic development spokesman in the Welsh Government, Ken Skates, has spoken of the fact that Wales is receiving record amounts of inward investment. He said that Wales is “punching above its weight” at the moment. Is it not time that Labour Members started to listen to their own economic development Minister in Wales and...

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...

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...
