Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (11 Oct 2017)

David Davies: In my constituency of Monmouth, children as young as 12 have been labelled as transgender and prescribed potentially life-altering sex change drugs. Does the Prime Minister agree that the law needs to be tightened to prevent this potential mistreatment of vulnerable young people?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: 2nd Day (11 Sep 2017)

David Davies: Twenty years ago, almost to the day, I was involved in another bitterly fought referendum campaign in which both sides accused the other of exaggerations and even outright lies. The result was extremely finely balanced, our nation was divided and many were of the opinion that the Government of the day had absolutely no right to proceed with such a profound constitutional change on the basis...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: 2nd Day (11 Sep 2017)

David Davies: I will give way in a moment. I am coming to something the SNP said earlier. The only powers being grabbed are those being grabbed from Brussels and taken back to London. There is absolutely no grabbing of powers from Cardiff. Earlier, my hon. Friend the Member for Stirling (Stephen Kerr) asked the hon. Member for North East Fife (Stephen Gethins) whether he could name a single power being...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: 2nd Day (11 Sep 2017)

David Davies: I am happy to give way to his colleague to see if he can come up with a few.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: 2nd Day (11 Sep 2017)

David Davies: It was about the same number of EU nationals whose human rights are being threatened by the latest referendum. One of those 3 million is my wife. Not a single Government Member has ever suggested stripping EU nationals of their rights. We are totally opposed to that idea. I am happy once again to say on behalf of all my colleagues that none of us wants to do anything to take away the human...

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Exiting the EU: Welsh Economy (6 Sep 2017)

David Davies: Since the referendum result, we have seen record inward investment in Wales, record levels of employment and a proposal to scrap the Severn bridge tolls. Does that not show that under the Conservative Government the future for Wales is very good indeed?

The Secretary of State Was Asked: Topical Questions (12 Jul 2017)

David Davies: Thank you, Mr Speaker. British-funded refugee camps throughout Turkey have been saving lives and preventing illegal migration into Europe. Is it now time to operate a similar scheme in north Africa?

Contaminated Blood (11 Jul 2017)

David Davies: Will my hon. Friend tell the House whether the terms of the inquiry will allow for recommendations to be made about the correct levels of compensation for those who have been affected?

G20 (10 Jul 2017)

David Davies: Given that the vast majority of Members of Parliament, including the Leader of the Opposition, stood on an election platform explicitly backing Brexit, is it not time that people stopped using these negotiations for either political or even personal advantage and united behind the Prime Minister, allowing her and her Ministers to get on with delivering a deal that works for the whole of Britain?

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Topical Questions (10 Jul 2017)

David Davies: The Royal Navy has rescued hundreds of migrants in the Mediterranean and taken them to Italy, but has the time now come to consider taking them to North Africa in order to remove the incentive for people to risk their lives and to prevent money being made by people traffickers?

Education: Public Funding (4 Jul 2017)

David Davies: The independent PISA––programme for international student assessment—results show that England has the best educational outcomes in the United Kingdom, and Wales, which has been run by Labour for nearly 20 years, has the worst. Is it not about time that Labour Members started to celebrate our policies, which are working, and look rather more critically at their own?

Backbench Business (20 Apr 2017)

David Davies: May I add my thanks to you for how you have chaired this debate, Mr Evans? In closing, let me briefly say that there is a surprising amount of agreement in the Chamber, considering that we are on the verge of what I suspect will be a rather fiery election campaign. Representatives of various different political parties have spoken in agreement with the general principle, but with concern that...

Backbench Business (20 Apr 2017)

David Davies: I do not disagree with anything the Minister says, but does he believe that the standards of justice applied in all countries that have the European arrest warrant match the standards that we would apply in the United Kingdom?

Backbench Business (20 Apr 2017)

David Davies: I agree with the points the right hon. Gentleman is making. Does he agree that another problem is that British nationals who are extradited to countries in the EAW area cannot get bail because they do not habitually reside in those countries? They are denied a right that would be almost automatic in the UK.

Backbench Business (20 Apr 2017)

David Davies: I had better gently point out that I was asked to resign a year or so ago because the rules had changed and the British Transport police decided they did not want a serving Member of Parliament as a special constable, so we shall not be meeting on the tube in that capacity.

Backbench Business (20 Apr 2017)

David Davies: I beg to move, That this House has considered the European Arrest Warrant. Mr Evans, you will be aware that back in January this year, there was a debate on the issue of Brexit and security, and I was one of a number of Members of Parliament who raised concerns about the European arrest warrant. It is fair to say that people had widely different opinions, but I gleaned that a number shared my...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (29 Mar 2017)

David Davies: As the Prime Minister will know, the Budget gave an extra £200 million to the Welsh Labour Government in order to provide business rates relief. Does she agree with me and the leader of Monmouthshire County Council, Peter Fox OBE, that Welsh Labour must now commit to spending that money on supporting Welsh businesses and giving them the same level of support that is being provided in...

Visible Religious Symbols: European Court Ruling (15 Mar 2017)

David Davies: I am sure I am not alone in seeing a big difference between a headscarf, crucifix or turban, and the burqa or niqab. How will the judgment affect the two police forces of which I am aware that currently state they are willing to consider applications from female police officers who might want to wear a full niqab or burqa?

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill: Power to notify withdrawal from the EU (13 Mar 2017)

David Davies: As somebody who is married to an EU citizen without a British passport, may I say that I wholeheartedly support this Government’s approach to this matter? [Interruption.] It is absolutely right that we get reciprocity before we go ahead with any agreement with the rest of the EU.
