NHS Long-Term Plan (18 Jun 2018)

Chris Davies: As the Labour Welsh Government are the only Government in recent times to reduce funding for the NHS, will my right hon. Friend do all he can to ensure that the very welcome £1.2 billion that will come to Wales under the Barnett formula will not be spent on another Welsh Labour Government pet project, but will be spent on the health of the people of Wales?

Business of the House (14 Jun 2018)

Chris Davies: This week, Guide Dogs for the Blind has led a very important and effective campaign in Westminster aiming to put an end to the problem of pavement parking and street obstructions. As this affects constituents right across the country, and certainly in Brecon and Radnorshire, may we have a debate on the perils of pavement parking and how we can stop this problem?

Exiting the European Union: Single Market: North-west Economy (14 Jun 2018)

Chris Davies: As well as the north-west, all other regions in the UK are important to the Union, including the devolved nations, so can my hon. Friend confirm that no area will be treated unfairly when we leave the EU?

Rural Crime and Public Services (6 Jun 2018)

Chris Davies: On cross-border matters, does the Minister agree that sometimes the issue is not the money going to police forces, but the co-operation between them in seeing matters through? That causes great problems for constituencies such as mine, which is on the border of three or four different police forces.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (6 Jun 2018)

Chris Davies: The biggest challenge between the Commons and the Lords takes place next week—yes, I am referring to the Lords versus Commons pigeon race, which has been revised after a 90-year gap and takes place at Bletchley Park next Wednesday. Each Member of both Houses has been asked to sponsor a pigeon, and the money will go to that excellent charity Combat Stress. Will my right hon. Friend join...

Sale of Puppies — [Ian Austin in the Chair] (21 May 2018)

Chris Davies: As a fellow Welsh MP, albeit from a different party—our constituencies nigh-on border—does the right hon. Lady agree that puppy farming has been a stain on animal welfare in Wales and that, sadly, certain parts of Wales are known for puppy farming, which is a great embarrassment to both of us, to all parties and to Wales?

Sale of Puppies — [Ian Austin in the Chair] (21 May 2018)

Chris Davies: I thank the hon. Gentleman for introducing the debate. In addition to the worthy organisations that he has just read out, a group of MPs came to the same conclusion back in 2016, when the Select Committee on Environment, Food and Rural Affairs unanimously supported a report—

Sale of Puppies — [Ian Austin in the Chair] (21 May 2018)

Chris Davies: I am sure that the hon. Lady agrees that we should have reached a conclusion, and I am sure she has changed her mind since.

Grenfell Tower (16 May 2018)

Chris Davies: I am pleased to speak in this debate on the Grenfell Tower tragedy as we head towards the first anniversary of this most horrific fire, which took so many lives and caused enormous suffering and devastation. We are all keen to ensure that such an event is never repeated. I am very aware that this Government have given the survivors of Grenfell and relatives of the deceased enormous support,...

Historic Allegations against Veterans (15 May 2018)

Chris Davies: I thank my hon. Friend for obtaining the debate. Only last year I met a constituent who is, sadly, fearful of a knock on the door, or a letter, calling him to court. He served his country and had been retired for nearly 30 years. He put his life on the line for his country; he had taken lives for his country, yet he now feels that his country is not supporting him. Does my hon. Friend agree...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Topical Questions (15 May 2018)

Chris Davies: Hezbollah’s arsenal of rockets supplied by Iran is now estimated at 150,000. Does the Minister share my concern at Iran’s malign influence in the region, and what recent discussions has he had with his Israeli counterparts about the threat posed by Hezbollah?

Petition - Royal Bank of Scotland Closure in Saltcoats: Homeopathy: Veterinary Medicine (8 May 2018)

Chris Davies: My hon. Friend has clearly raised the fact that the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons very much opposes homeopathy, but we have not mentioned the British Veterinary Association, which was equally opposed. My understanding is, however, that its mood may be mellowing towards homeopathy. Has my hon. Friend’s hard work paid off, I wonder?

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Agricultural Policy (26 Apr 2018)

Chris Davies: Can my hon. Friend reassure upland food-producing family farmers that they have a future under his Department’s plans?

Leaving the EU: Veterinary Profession in Wales (18 Apr 2018)

Chris Davies: I thank the hon. Gentleman, who is my constituency neighbour, for bringing the debate. I know about the veterinary profession not from books but from having managed a veterinary practice employing 14 vets before coming into this place. On the basis of what I have so far heard from the Government about their plans to allow vets into the country, if I was still running that practice I would not...

Leaving the EU: Veterinary Profession in Wales (18 Apr 2018)

Chris Davies: I thank the hon. Gentleman for being so generous with his time. I should put it on the record that I am delighted and honoured to be an honorary associate of the British Veterinary Association. On this very point, I was in Hong Kong last week, and when I quizzed Hong Kong’s Minister of Agriculture on veterinary services, she said Hong Kong and China and many other parts of the world...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (18 Apr 2018)

Chris Davies: In the autumn Budget the Chancellor announced plans for a mid-Wales growth deal. In an area that has received historically low levels of investment, this vital initiative has been welcomed by everyone, especially by 90% of the small and medium-sized enterprises that are located in that region. Therefore, can my right hon. Friend tell the House what progress is being made and confirm that this...

Business of the House (22 Mar 2018)

Chris Davies: During the snowstorms of the past few weeks, when parts of the country were brought to a standstill, we rightly praised our emergency services and local council workers for helping to keep our country moving, but our farmers also played a vital role, certainly in constituencies such as mine. They went over and above in helping schoolchildren to get to school and nurses to get to hospitals....

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Tourism (22 Mar 2018)

Chris Davies: What steps his Department is taking to support tourism throughout the UK.

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Tourism (22 Mar 2018)

Chris Davies: I thank the Minister for his answer, but this question is on tourism throughout the UK. Earlier this month at the Welsh tourism awards, the Brecon Beacons in my constituency was announced as the best tourist destination in Wales—[Hon. Members: “Hear, hear!”] I knew that, and the Secretary of State knew that, and evidently many Members in this House knew that as well, but how...

Petition - Royal Bank of Scotland Closure: Birmingham Commonwealth Games and Shooting (21 Mar 2018)

Chris Davies: The Minister has acknowledged that the athletes will be disappointed that shooting is not happening at the 2022 games. Will she commit the Government to supporting British shooting beyond the Olympic games and show that they are prepared to support British shooting into eternity?
