Domestic Abuse Bill: Carry-over: Welsh Language ( 2 Oct 2019)

Glyn Davies: Diolch, Madam Deputy Speaker. Rydw i’n falch iawn o gael y cyfle i wneud araith am yr iaith Gymraeg yn San Steffan heno. Thank you, Madam Deputy Speaker, for the opportunity to speak about the Welsh language here in the Palace of Westminster tonight. I tabled my request for this Adjournment debate for several reasons: first, because I believe the Welsh language to be of such importance that...

Domestic Abuse Bill: Carry-over: Welsh Language ( 2 Oct 2019)

Glyn Davies: It is good to find myself, and anticipate finding myself, in agreement with quite a few Members in the Chamber, which is probably quite pleasant. I speak with a special personal interest in that Wales and matters Welsh have been absolutely my focus as an MP, my overriding interest, and almost at times, I think, my obsession since being elected in 2010, as they have been throughout my 40 years...

Domestic Abuse Bill: Carry-over: Welsh Language ( 2 Oct 2019)

Glyn Davies: The right hon. Lady makes a very good point, which could be spread to quite a lot of other areas as well. Our means of communication change so much, and we always have to be looking forward to different ways of ensuring that the language has its place.

Domestic Abuse Bill: Carry-over: Welsh Language ( 2 Oct 2019)

Glyn Davies: I will take another intervention. I will allow others, although I would prefer them to be on the Minister later because I want to finish my comments.

Domestic Abuse Bill: Carry-over: Welsh Language ( 2 Oct 2019)

Glyn Davies: Again, I very much agree with that point. Because Welsh language policy is devolved, I accept that our role here at Westminster is largely, though not exclusively, a supportive role. The main policy levers lie with the National Assembly for Wales, but in my view it is important that the UK Government make clear policy statements that we support constructive policy objectives, rather than just...

Domestic Abuse Bill: Carry-over: Welsh Language ( 2 Oct 2019)

Glyn Davies: I thank the hon. Lady, and I would like to return to that point, if I may, in the last sentence of my speech. Welsh language policy is devolved, but devolution is not totally clearcut in all areas. There are opportunities within the devolved settlement to promote the language here at Westminster. Today, I believe the Secretary of State for Wales has committed Government investment to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (24 Jul 2019)

Glyn Davies: I first met the Prime Minister when she came campaigning with me in Berriew in the difficult and dark days of the late 1990s, and she has been a great friend of Wales ever since. Only recently, her Government approved the end of the M4 tolls and several other great measures for Wales. Will she encourage her successor to introduce a Bill to extend the general election franchise to all British...

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: EU Withdrawal Agreement: Welsh Economy (26 Jun 2019)

Glyn Davies: Along with the Secretary of State, I supported the withdrawal agreement the three times it came before Parliament because of the impact that it will have on my constituency, and particularly on the sheep farming industry. Will the Secretary of State go to the Royal Welsh show and explain to the farming unions that he, I and both of the candidates who might be Prime Minister are very...

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: EU Withdrawal: Welsh Economy (15 May 2019)

Glyn Davies: The economy of Montgomeryshire is very dependent on the sheepmeat industry. Does the Secretary of State accept that retaining tariff-free access to the EU market is crucial to the future of all of rural Wales where sheepmeat is important? Will he do everything he can, alongside me and many others, to ensure that the withdrawal agreement is passed when it returns to the House?

Overseas Electors Bill (22 Mar 2019)

Glyn Davies: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Overseas Electors Bill (22 Mar 2019)

Glyn Davies: I am very grateful to the hon. Gentleman—my friend—for taking an intervention, and I think he knows what I want to do. First, I congratulate him, and I do thank him for the way in which he helped us in Committee. I did not always agree with him when we had a dispute, but he was always incredibly polite and well argued, and all the points he made were very well made. I would like to take...

European Council: Article 50 Extension (22 Mar 2019)

Glyn Davies: I voted leave in 1975 and I voted leave again in 2016. It is crucial that we respect the vote of the referendum. Does my hon. Friend the Minister agree that the best way to achieve that, and indeed to retain good, solid working relationships with our current European partners, is by supporting the withdrawal agreement and voting for it in the meaningful vote?
