Welsh Affairs (23 Apr 1959)

Mr David Llewellyn: For many years I used to stare at a text on a school wall which ran: He may begin his work today, but God knows when he'll end. I have sometimes thought of that in the House, but never when the hon. Member for Wrexham (Mr. ldwal Jones) has been speaking. He is a scholar representing a constituency with scholarly traditions. His historical atlases, which he gave us only in the briefest outline...

Welsh Affairs (23 Apr 1959)

Mr David Llewellyn: I am following the hon. Member's theme with great interest. Does he say, in effect, that the weapons already possessed by the Government are sufficient to cure unemployment in the really bad areas of Wales?

Orders of the Day — Unemployment in Wales (31 Jul 1958)

Mr David Llewellyn: I listened to the hon. Member for Bedwellty (Mr. Finch), as I am sure the whole House did with the greatest attention, although I cannot say with total agreement. I do not wish to do him any harm when I say that I should like to hear him speaking from the Dispatch Box very much more often than we now hear him. I am sure that I am speaking for every hon. Member who has heard him this afternoon...

Orders of the Day — Unemployment in Wales (31 Jul 1958)

Mr David Llewellyn: My right hon. Friend has asked what is missing. The Cardiff Rural District Council has a site ready. What is missing is £8,000.

Oral Answers to Questions — Post Office: New Stamps (16 Jul 1958)

Mr David Llewellyn: asked the Postmaster-General when he proposes to issue the distinctive stamps for the different parts of the United Kingdom.

Sunday Cinematograph Entertainments (8 May 1958)

Mr David Llewellyn: I believe that this is the first time for many years that an Order of this kind has been debated in this way. I want guidance only on one small point, arising out of my hon. and learned Friend's remarks. He referred to the discretion that he enjoys in placing an Order before the House, and its relation with the actual size of the poll. I should like to know whether, in the event of a town...

Royal Ordnance Factory, Cardiff (Closing) (30 Apr 1958)

Mr David Llewellyn: The Minister also knows that that is completely inaccurate, from his own files and from my personal visits.

Royal Ordnance Factory, Cardiff (Closing) (30 Apr 1958)

Mr David Llewellyn: I should like to join the hon. Member for Cardiff, West (Mr. G. Thomas) in the tribute he has paid to my right hon. Friend the Minister of Supply for the interest and help he has given to hon. Members on both sides of the House, including myself, in this very difficult matter. We cannot view the closing of the Royal Ordnance Factory at Llanishen with anything but great regret, but it is not...

Royal Ordnance Factory, Cardiff (Closing) (30 Apr 1958)

Mr David Llewellyn: This year, and in previous years also, if the hon. Gentleman is interested. I asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury: whether he will make a statement about the position of established civil servants who become redundant because of the closure of substantial reduction of defence establishments under the policy announced in the White Paper on Defence of 16th April, 1957. My hon. and...

Welsh Affairs (16 Dec 1957)

Mr David Llewellyn: On this point, they are almost identical with those of Lord Ogmore.

Welsh Affairs (16 Dec 1957)

Mr David Llewellyn: I do not want to make a long speech longer by replying to the hon. Member for Cardiff, West (Mr. G. Thomas) point by point, but I should like to congratulate him on his good fortune in opening the debate. I thought that the first part of his speech, on education, a subject about which he is well-informed, was as generous as his reference to Government administration, of which When it comes he...

Welsh Affairs (16 Dec 1957)

Mr David Llewellyn: The hon. and learned Gentleman must not make my speech for me, but I am in favour of it and I will tell him why later. By the same token, hon. Gentlemen opposite are really praising the merit of Conservative leaders in the Principality, and they are right. Although the hon. Member for Cardiff, West, did not remind the House of this, it was reflected at the last General Election. In our...

Welsh Affairs (16 Dec 1957)

Mr David Llewellyn: Maybe they did not but maybe they will know more next time and make the differentiation in favour of the Tory Party even greater. I do not want to be too controversial yet, but I know that the new Minister of State—

Welsh Affairs (16 Dec 1957)

Mr David Llewellyn: I was not going to do that, because I thought that the comparison might be very unflattering to the hon. Gentleman.

Welsh Affairs (16 Dec 1957)

Mr David Llewellyn: It would be, because they were willing to vote for the councillors but would not vote for the hon. Gentleman. What is the explanation?

Welsh Affairs (16 Dec 1957)

Mr David Llewellyn: I do not think I shall agree with the right hon. Gentleman the Member for Llanelly (Mr. J. Griffiths) for long. Some people voted for the hon. Member for Cardiff, South-East (Mr. Callaghan) and some people voted for the hon. Member for Cardiff, West. Notwithstanding that, more Tory votes than Labour votes were cast in Cardiff. Having said that, I can say, from my own experience when I was...

Welsh Affairs (16 Dec 1957)

Mr David Llewellyn: Secondly, my right hon. Friend now has a Department in Wales under a greatly gifted civil servant, whose recognition as the senior civil servant in Wales is so much welcomed by his colleagues and by all who know him. Thirdly, there has been since then devolution in varying degrees in other Departments. The new Minister of State will, therefore, be free, in a sense that former...

Welsh Affairs (16 Dec 1957)

Mr David Llewellyn: Perhaps the hon. Member will listen. This is what is in the Paper. The Chairman of the Advisory Council is now recommending parity with Scotland, and he is not alone.

Welsh Affairs (16 Dec 1957)

Mr David Llewellyn: That is true. I do not dissent from that for a moment. This is not in any sense a personal attack on Mr. Edwards.

Welsh Affairs (16 Dec 1957)

Mr David Llewellyn: It is a political attack, because the letter was sent from the Prime Minister to him as Chairman of the Advisory Council, and it is to Alderman Edwards himself that the Prime Minister replied. If the hon. Member for Cardiff, West had read the letter with care, he should have known both those facts. It is perfectly true, also—I concede this to the hon. Gentleman—that Alderman Edwards is...
