International Women’S Day: Welsh Affairs (2 Mar 2017)

Byron Davies: I am delighted to have the opportunity to speak in this debate, and I shall focus on a number of key areas for Wales and Gower. One thing on which we can all agree is that we are at a historic point for Wales and the United Kingdom, and we must make all our voices heard to ensure that Wales gets the very best representation as part of the Brexit negotiations. As part of that, the importance...

International Women’S Day: Welsh Affairs (2 Mar 2017)

Byron Davies: If my hon. Friend bears with me, I will address that point in a moment. There are positive points, of course. The Department for Transport has invested heavily in the great western line, and the new intercity express rolling stock, which will shortly be introduced on services to Cardiff and Swansea, will provide passengers on the line with greater capacity, a more comfortable journey and...

Written Answers — Department of Health: Alcoholic Drinks: Misuse (1 Mar 2017)

Prevent Strategy — [Sir David Crausby in the Chair] (1 Feb 2017)

Byron Davies: I am grateful for the opportunity to make a small contribution to the debate under your chairmanship, Sir David. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Telford (Lucy Allan) on securing the debate and giving us the opportunity to discuss this issue. It is my belief that Prevent is making a positive difference. The Government are working in partnership with local communities and...

Prevent Strategy — [Sir David Crausby in the Chair] (1 Feb 2017)

Byron Davies: I understand what my hon. Friend says but, at the end of the day, it is a set of guidelines that we would be floundering without. I accept what she says to a certain extent, but that guidance has so far proven to be of great advantage. As I was saying, those lives saved shine a light on the positive difference Prevent makes to safeguarding people, particularly children, from the risks of...

Prevent Strategy — [Sir David Crausby in the Chair] (1 Feb 2017)

Byron Davies: I agree that it is a question of trust, and of communities understanding the principle behind Prevent. The Government certainly have a big part to play in that, and I think we all share a responsibility for that. It is the essence of our values that we can discuss the risks of a certain ideology or way of thinking in an open and trusting environment that allows full examination of the...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Hendry Review (31 Jan 2017)

Byron Davies: In a previous answer, the Minister referred to advantages and disadvantages. Does he agree that the Swansea Bay tidal lagoon would not only meet energy needs but provide huge levels of investment in jobs in my constituency and throughout the region? As the Hendry report implies, it could put Wales at the forefront of developing a world-first technology.

Cabinet Office and the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster: Cyber-attack (14 Dec 2016)

Byron Davies: Last week, the head of MI6 warned of a “fundamental threat” to Europe from hostile states that use cyber-attacks as part of a package of measures to subvert the democratic process. Tackling this is vital for the future of our democracy. Are the Government fully prepared for and able to defend the UK from such attacks?

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Topical Questions (5 Dec 2016)

Byron Davies: I welcome the recently announced Home Office measures on police competence to investigate sexual offences. Will the Home Secretary accept from me that it is time for the police service, and particularly the Met police, to take a serious look at their respective detective training regimes, which I suggest are at the core of the unfortunate publicity?

Public Bill Committee: Criminal Finances Bill: Examination of Witnesses (15 Nov 2016)

Byron Davies: I am a former Metropolitan police officer and member of the National Crime Squad.

Public Bill Committee: Criminal Finances Bill: Examination of Witnesses (15 Nov 2016)

Byron Davies: Q My question is simply this, with respect to unexplained wealth orders and politically exposed persons. It is perhaps more to you, Mr Harman, than anyone. The measures reflect the concerns about those involved in corruption overseas and laundering of the proceeds of crime. How operationally viable do you think those are from an investigation point of view, particularly with some of the more...

Community Pharmacies: Police Officer Safety (2 Nov 2016)

Byron Davies: I am pleased to be able to speak in the debate, and to have another opportunity to discuss this issue. I, too, pay tribute to the hon. Member for Halifax (Holly Lynch), who is a strong advocate for police officer safety and who, as we have heard, initiated an Adjournment debate on the subject in which I was happy to participate. When people become police officers, they understand that they...

Orgreave (1 Nov 2016)

Byron Davies: I was a serving police officer at the time, and I well remember the situation as described by my hon. Friend the Member for Shipley (Philip Davies). Does the Minister agree that policing has moved on significantly in the last few decades, that there are sufficient safeguards against a repetition of an episode like Orgreave, and that there is no useful purpose in an inquiry?

Leaving the EU: Wales — [Mr Adrian Bailey in the Chair] (25 Oct 2016)

Byron Davies: I am delighted, as the real Byron Davies, to have the opportunity to contribute to this debate, Mr Bailey. I congratulate the hon. Member for Aberavon (Stephen Kinnock) on securing this debate. I am pleased that we are all here contributing to what should be a wider and national conversation about what happens to Wales post-Brexit. I am sure that we here today recognise the importance of...

Calais (24 Oct 2016)

Byron Davies: I thank the Home Secretary for her comprehensive statement. It will not have gone unnoticed from media reports that a number of the children coming into the UK appear to be mature young men. Can she confirm how many people the Home Office has rejected on the grounds of age?

Written Answers — Home Office: International Corruption Unit (21 Oct 2016)

Byron Davies: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, how many investigations the International Corruption Unit (ICU) at the National Crime Agency (NCA) inherited from other agencies when it was first established; and how many new investigations the ICU at the NCA has started since it was established.

Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse (17 Oct 2016)

Byron Davies: Given that we are where we are now with the resignation of Dame Justice Goddard, does my right hon. Friend agree with Professor Jay when she says that the inquiry is “open for business”? Does she agree that it can now go forward with its vital work with confidence to demonstrate its accountability?
