Anglo-Polish Relations — [Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] (18 Jul 2017)

Glyn Davies: Will my hon. Friend give way?

Anglo-Polish Relations — [Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] (18 Jul 2017)

Glyn Davies: I thank my hon. Friend for allowing me to intervene and to express my admiration for the Polish people. A huge number of Polish people have moved to my constituency and, I am sure, to many others. They work incredibly hard and are committed to their families—that is their reputation—all on top of the commitment that those of us of a certain age know they made to the freedom of our...

Anglo-Polish Relations — [Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] (18 Jul 2017)

Glyn Davies: Not Welsh?

Road Infrastructure — [Mrs Cheryl Gillan in the Chair] (5 Jul 2017)

Glyn Davies: Thank you, Mrs Gillan, for calling me to speak in such a broad debate on road infrastructure. I will not make it too broad because in my constituency investment in road infrastructure is a matter for the Welsh Assembly and the Welsh Government. Montgomeryshire, however, has a very long border with England—Shropshire—and I want to speak specifically about the general principle of...

Child Abuse Offences (Sentencing) — [Mrs Madeleine Moon in the Chair] (13 Mar 2017)

Glyn Davies: Thank you for calling me to speak, Mrs Moon. We have worked together on many other issues and it is a great pleasure to serve under your chairmanship today. I also thank the representative of the Petitions Committee, the hon. Member for Newcastle upon Tyne North (Catherine McKinnell), for comprehensively outlining all the issues that surround this very complex case. There are all sorts of...

Child Abuse Offences (Sentencing) — [Mrs Madeleine Moon in the Chair] (13 Mar 2017)

Glyn Davies: I thank my hon. Friend for his intervention and I agree with him. The point I am trying to emphasise—I think it is something that most Members in this House believe—is that this is a growing crime. We are also becoming more aware of it, and it has probably been under-reported forever. We are starting to realise just how awful things have been. This crime destroys young...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (1 Mar 2017)

Glyn Davies: I join the Prime Minister in wishing Wales a happy dydd Dewi Sant—St David’s day. The Secretary of State for Wales has been working with colleagues across Government to send out to the world the message that Wales is one of the best places in the United Kingdom to live, work, visit and trade with. Does the Prime Minister agree that Welsh interests must remain at the heart of our...

Armed Forces Covenant: Colostomy Irrigation (2 Feb 2017)

Glyn Davies: When I secured this debate, I had not realised that it would be so close to World Cancer Day, which is on Saturday. Given the close connection between my subject and cancer, I could not have chosen a more appropriate date. I begin by paying tribute to the colostomy nurses at the Royal Shrewsbury hospital, particularly Tracy Lunt, my personal stoma nurse, who helped me through a difficult time...

Public Administration and Constitutional Affairs Committee (2 Feb 2017)

Glyn Davies: I, too, greatly welcome this report, as do my constituents. That may seem surprising to some of my colleagues, as, of course, my constituency is in Wales, but all my constituents use hospitals in England for elective care and specialist care, so this is as important to the people of Wales as it is to the people of England. I have also been involved in many of the complaints. Does the Chair of...

Exiting the Eu: New Partnership (2 Feb 2017)

Glyn Davies: Significant discussion has already taken place between the Prime Minister and the Welsh Government following last June’s referendum, and there has been discussion in the Welsh Parliament, and I very much welcome that. In the interests of UK unity, Wales’s interests must be taken into account, including through discussion of this White Paper. Will the Secretary of State guarantee...

Airport Capacity and Airspace Policy: Business of the House (2 Feb 2017)

Glyn Davies: This week, a petition raised by the parents of April Jones, who lived in Machynlleth in my constituency, reached 100,000. April was just five years old when she was abducted and murdered. The person responsible, Mark Bridger, is now in prison. The petition calls for tougher sentences for those looking at child pornography on the internet and greater control of internet search engines. Will...

Duodopa — [Sir Edward Leigh in the Chair] (31 Jan 2017)

Glyn Davies: I intervene only to reinforce the Minister’s point. I remember being involved in campaigning against NICE and calling it out for everything I could when bowel cancer drugs were not available. That was driven by my personal interest, but in time I have come to realise—partly because my son who works for a drug company lectures me about this—that the principles behind NICE are...

Duodopa — [Sir Edward Leigh in the Chair] (31 Jan 2017)

Glyn Davies: I have been involved for 15 or 20 years in supporting Parkinson’s disease patients or those living with Parkinson’s disease, and I think it is terrific that Members of Parliament initiate debates that raise its profile, raise awareness and ask the Minister to come before us and share views on where we are. I therefore congratulate the hon. Gentleman on securing and introducing the...

Severn Bridges — [Geraint Davies in the Chair] (31 Jan 2017)

Glyn Davies: rose—

Severn Bridges — [Geraint Davies in the Chair] (31 Jan 2017)

Glyn Davies: Does the Minister accept that many, like me, will be concerned about the issue? A huge number of road schemes in Britain are in need of development, for the benefit of the relevant parts of the country and the economy. That is hugely important—it is vital. However, if we cut off the possibility of part-funding through user contributions, we will not be able to provide all those schemes....

Severn Bridges — [Geraint Davies in the Chair] (31 Jan 2017)

Glyn Davies: rose—

Severn Bridges — [Geraint Davies in the Chair] (31 Jan 2017)

Glyn Davies: I thank the hon. Gentleman for allowing me to interject in his colourful presentation. I read an article by Lee Waters, a Labour Assembly Member who is concerned about reducing the tolls. I do not think he voted against doing so in the Assembly, but he certainly made a lot of public comments acknowledging that one consequence of cutting the tolls completely would be far less spending on other...

Severn Bridges — [Geraint Davies in the Chair] (31 Jan 2017)

Glyn Davies: Probably every Welsh MP has some sympathy with the points that the hon. Lady is making—not necessarily with all of them, but certainly with some. As she is drawing to the end of her speech, may I ask her about a point of principle? Is she against the whole idea of using a tolling mechanism for constructing new bridges and roadworks? Is the Opposition’s view that there should not...

Wales Bill: Lending for capital expenditure (24 Jan 2017)

Glyn Davies: Thank you, Madam Deputy Speaker, for calling me to speak in a debate that is hugely important to me. As someone who served as a Member of the National Assembly for Wales for eight years before my six years here, almost all of my political life has been dogged—if I can use that word—by Wales Bills of one sort or another. I do not know whether I will still be a Member of this...

Petition - Boat Moorings on the River Avon: A&E Provision: Shropshire and Mid-Wales (11 Jan 2017)

Glyn Davies: Thank you, Madam Deputy Speaker, for calling me to speak on what is the most important and concerning issue in my constituency over recent years—and it is certainly particularly acute at this moment. I would love to make several points and make a full speech at some stage, but on this occasion, I shall restrict myself to making just three points that I hope the Minister will address....
