Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Economy (17 Jun 2015)

Byron Davies: I thank my hon. Friend for that answer. Having hauled my constituency out of the hands of Labour dominance after 109 years, I wonder whether my hon. Friend agrees that the general election result demonstrated clearly what we knew all along, which is that the Labour party, together with its failing chums in Cardiff Bay, was consistently on the wrong side of the economic argument.

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Onshore Wind Subsidies (22 Jun 2015)

Byron Davies: I thank the Secretary of State for a very clear statement and for her responses on communities and tourism.

Planning permission for one of Wales’s largest wind farms has been granted by Swansea’s Labour city council, against the wishes of a clear majority...

Opposition Day: 3rd Alloted day — A&E Services (24 Jun 2015)

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Water Cannon (15 Jul 2015)

Byron Davies: As a former Metropolitan police officer, I was relieved to hear my right hon. Friend’s announcement.

Will she ensure that the police are provided with the most up-to-date equipment to fight criminality, including robust stop-and-search powers?

Business of the House (16 Jul 2015)

Byron Davies: Yesterday the Auditor General for Wales published a damning report on the Labour Welsh Government’s handling of the regeneration investment fund for Wales and the underselling of a large amount of publicly owned property.

Bill Presented — Devolution (London) Bill: Refugee Crisis in Europe (8 Sep 2015)

Byron Davies: I am grateful for the opportunity to speak on this issue of critical importance.

Many people have taken the perilous journey, fleeing the ravages of the conflict that has torn Syria apart. They are fleeing the terrors of Bashar al-Assad, ISIL and other perpetrators of the terrible and...

Bill Presented — Devolution (London) Bill: Refugee Crisis in Europe (8 Sep 2015)

Byron Davies: Save the Children does a remarkable job and I would always be open to helping with any of its initiatives. We are the second largest bilateral donor of aid to the Syrian conflict. We are providing more than 18 million food rations, 2.4 million medical consultations and 1.6 million people with clean water. That is the largest ever response to a humanitarian crisis. I welcome the Government’s...

Bill Presented — Devolution (London) Bill: Refugee Crisis in Europe (8 Sep 2015)

Byron Davies: We must try to provide refugees with a more direct and safe route to the UK, avoiding the clutches of people traffickers. This point brings into sharp focus the current crisis in Europe. Tragically, the hazardous journey has cost many lives.
