Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Legislative Consent Motion (13 Dec 2017)

David Davies: Given the result of the referendum, should not any Government who claim to represent Wales—and indeed any party that claims to be the party of Wales—support this Government and this Prime Minister in delivering the legislative consent motion and the Brexit that the people of Wales voted for?

King’S College Hospital Foundation Trust (12 Dec 2017)

David Davies: Is it not the case that what we have here is one of Labour’s top advisers jumping in a blaze of politically motivated publicity before being pushed out for woeful financial mismanagement?

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Carbon Savings (12 Dec 2017)

David Davies: Does my hon. Friend agree that, notwithstanding his comments, wind energy requires a subsidy, realignment of the national grid and extra money for back-up sources when the wind is not blowing? Does that not mean that the electricity will be far more expensive than that which is produced by gas or coal?

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Leaving the EU: Departmental Preparation (7 Dec 2017)

David Davies: On this very point, sir, does my right hon. Friend agree that we absolutely have to continue our support for glyphosate, which protects the environment by reducing the need for excess tillage and the need to use other herbicides? With he continue to support this safe herbicide once Brexit has taken place?

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

David Davies: I first want to pick up on an earlier comment about what Mr Juncker has been saying. If one could get past the headlines of the biased BBC, the reality is that Mr Juncker actually said that enormous progress has been made in the talks. It might be worth listening to what he actually has to say for once instead of listening to all the usual commentators, who are doing their best to undermine...

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

David Davies: I would be delighted to explain, but I probably will not be able to today. It is a lovely idea, and I would be more than happy to spend 20 minutes or so on it, but—

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

David Davies: Let me return to the matter in hand for a minute, because the hon. Member for Clwyd South (Susan Elan Jones) was also there for the underwhelming vote for devolution in 1999, and she will surely recall that the Conservative party did not call for a second referendum. We did not threaten to drag the whole thing through the courts to get the judges to overrule the will of the people of...

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

David Davies: I would be delighted.

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

David Davies: As the hon. Gentleman knows, that is for the Scots to decide, and they decided that, for the time being, ultimate sovereignty rests within a United Kingdom Parliament in which the Scots are heavily and well represented, if I may say so. I totally respect that, and I hope he does, too. A few weeks ago, Scottish National party Members were telling us that we should all support and recognise the...

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

David Davies: I am comparing not the two referendums but the reaction to those two referendums. On that point, I am probably on the same side as the hon. Gentleman.

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

David Davies: The hon. Gentleman knows the difference between a local authority area and a parliamentary constituency, so he knows there is absolutely no way of telling what the Monmouth constituency did. He will be aware that it was quite close in the Monmouthshire local authority area. Indeed, there was a very small majority in favour of staying in the European Union. He will also be acutely aware, as I...

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

David Davies: Absolutely. My hon. Friend makes an excellent point. Of course, the Government’s whole purpose is to ensure there is a single market within the United Kingdom. We cannot have a situation where different nation states within the United Kingdom go off and do their own thing. If that were to happen, we would have exactly the same problem that some Opposition Members complain will happen...

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

David Davies: I can say to the hon. Lady that that is exactly what I am saying to her. May I remind her that in 2003 I had an election leaflet that had the headline “No more powers for the Welsh Assembly” and I was given one of the biggest majorities of anyone in Wales? That is something to think about. So “yes” is the answer to that question. This Government are doing a superb job....

Social Mobility Commission: Points of Order (4 Dec 2017)

David Davies: Further to that point of order, Mr Speaker. The news is actually that Juncker is confident there will be a deal next week. Is it not wrong to say that the Prime Minister is coming back empty-handed when there is almost certainly going to be a deal? Is it not the Europeans who are going to be empty-handed if they do not get their hands on our £50 billion?

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Innovative Treatments and Technologies (14 Nov 2017)

David Davies: Thank you, Mr Speaker. It goes back a long way, and one day it will be no more.

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Infrastructure Investment (1 Nov 2017)

David Davies: The excellent History of Parliament website yesterday tweeted a link to a 1606 Bill to build a new bridge at Chepstow. Does my hon. Friend agree that it is a pity that those involved did not add an amendment calling for a M4 relief road, because by now the Welsh Assembly Government might have got their act together and actually built one?

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Fly-tipping (26 Oct 2017)

David Davies: What steps the Environment Agency is taking to prevent illegal fly-tipping on farms.

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Fly-tipping (26 Oct 2017)

David Davies: Is my hon. Friend aware of the excellent campaign by Farmers Weekly to bring in much tougher penalties across the UK for the criminal gangs responsible for fly-tipping on farms in Britain?

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Unemployment (24 Oct 2017)

David Davies: What recent fiscal steps he has taken to reduce unemployment.
