Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Public Spending: Wales (16 Jan 2018)

Jonathan Edwards: The headline-grabbing announcement in the Budget was the alleged £1.2 billion uplift to the Welsh public finances, which the Minister has just repeated in his answer. It was an example of financial trickery best suited to the Foreign Secretary’s big red buses. Is it not the case that more than half that money will be in the form of repayable loans—in other words, financial...

Carillion (15 Jan 2018)

Jonathan Edwards: Across Wales, Carillion is involved in rail, road, energy and digital infrastructure projects. What discussions about exposure to Welsh projects took place between the UK and Welsh Governments before the events of the weekend, and what discussions have there been over the last few days?

National Security Capability Review (15 Jan 2018)

Jonathan Edwards: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. The Secretary of State, who is a very nice man, referred to Wales as a Principality during the exchanges. He knows, of course, that Wales is a proud nation; will he please correct the record?

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Royal Navy: Capability and Strength (15 Jan 2018)

NHS Winter Crisis: Rail Franchising (10 Jan 2018)

Jonathan Edwards: Will the Secretary of State update the House on his discussions with the Welsh Government about devolving responsibility for the franchise in Wales? We are halfway through the bidding process, which the Welsh Government are conducting, yet powers over the franchise remain in Westminster, despite the British Government’s promises to hand them over.

NHS Winter Crisis: Rail Franchising (10 Jan 2018)

Jonathan Edwards: The hon. Gentleman makes a valid point. Is not the biggest danger of the Secretary of State’s decision that other franchisees might come looking for a handout?

Taxation (Cross-Border Trade) Bill (8 Jan 2018)

Jonathan Edwards: Ga’i ddymuno blwyddyn newydd dda i chi—may I wish you a happy new year, Mr Speaker? I wish to confine my remarks to three key points. First, I wish to add my voice to those calling for our continued membership of the largest trading bloc in the world. Secondly, I wish to outline the concerns from Welsh ports, which would face immediate challenges to their existing position as a...

Taxation (Cross-Border Trade) Bill (8 Jan 2018)

Jonathan Edwards: I am grateful for the intervention, and am aware that during the debate many honourable colleagues on the Labour Back Benches have made that exact point and implored Front Benchers to change their position. Some very interesting reports are coming out of the parliamentary Labour party meeting this evening. Before the recess, the tangible and immediate chaos created by pulling us out of the...

European Council (18 Dec 2017)

Jonathan Edwards: It is nearly a year since the Lancaster House speech, but the British Government have not published the detail of their preferred trade framework to replace membership of the single market and the customs union. Why has it taken the Prime Minister so long to summon the Brexit war Cabinet to start that work? Is it not the case that the Government and the Conservative party are split about what...

Prison Reform and Safety (7 Dec 2017)

Jonathan Edwards: The English prison system is in crisis. It is failing inmates, prison officers and, fundamentally, society, as the hard-hitting motion of the hon. Member for Bromley and Chislehurst (Robert Neill) and the right hon. Member for Delyn (David Hanson) makes clear. Building more prison places will not solve the problem. The prison population tends to expand to fill the places available, often...

Royal Assent: Business of the House (7 Dec 2017)

Jonathan Edwards: Last week, Her Majesty’s inspectorate of constabulary reported that the new centralised air support service for police forces in Wales and England was not fit for purpose, with the communities I serve waiting over an hour for a response. Can we have a Home Office statement on the report so that we can debate the failings of the centralised service, which was introduced by the Prime...

Israel: Us Embassy (7 Dec 2017)

Jonathan Edwards: Diolch, Mr Speaker. Does the Minister agree that Jonathan Freedland, writing yesterday in The Guardian, summed up President Trump’s announcement best when he described it as an act of diplomatic arson?

Palestinian Communities: Israeli Demolitions — [Mark Pritchard in the Chair] (6 Dec 2017)

Jonathan Edwards: I congratulate the hon. Gentleman on securing the debate and on his considered comments. Does this not underline the importance of people in positions of influence taking a measured response? The comments that the President of the United States will make later this afternoon, in which he will recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, are therefore highly regrettable and highly dangerous.
