Public Bill Committee: Investigatory Powers Bill: Examination of witnesses (24 Mar 2016)

Byron Davies: They would not see it the way you see it, obviously.

Public Bill Committee: Investigatory Powers Bill: Examination of Witnesses (24 Mar 2016)

Byron Davies: I was a member of some of the agencies that will attend today.

Welfare (21 Mar 2016)

Byron Davies: May I congratulate the Secretary of State on his recent appointment and say that it is good to see Welsh MPs on the march? I am pleased to see that under this Government just under 300,000 more disabled people are in employment. That is positive progress, but does he agree that there is more important work to be done in this area?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (16 Mar 2016)

Byron Davies: My constituency of Gower, which was won for the first time ever by the Conservatives, could be transformed, along with the rest of the region, by the Swansea Bay tidal lagoon. Having signed a £1.2 billion deal for Cardiff yesterday, will the Prime Minister give an absolute assurance that the Government review on tidal lagoons will do everything to ensure that the wider Swansea Bay tidal...

Investigatory Powers Bill (15 Mar 2016)

Byron Davies: This significant Bill has the potential to overhaul the framework that governs the use of surveillance by the intelligence, security and law enforcement agencies in obtaining the content of communications data, and it will clearly continue to garner much serious and forensic debate. Members will clearly have their own stance on the Bill, given their knowledge of certain areas. In that vein, I...

Backbench Business: Swansea Tidal Lagoon — [Mr Graham Brady in the Chair] (8 Mar 2016)

Byron Davies: I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Carmarthen West and South Pembrokeshire (Simon Hart) on securing this important debate. It is a pleasure to represent my constituency of Gower, part of which this tidal lagoon falls into, in the Mumbles area. The lagoon is the result of five years of hard work on the part of the developers, and we have now arrived at the point of the strike...

Backbench Business: Swansea Tidal Lagoon — [Mr Graham Brady in the Chair] (8 Mar 2016)

Byron Davies: I totally agree with the hon. Gentleman; I could not have put it better myself. More than 1,000 companies in the supply chain across the UK have registered their interest in such projects. The scope for further investment in other lagoons and in the export market will eventually give rise to a contribution to the UK balance of payments of tens of billions of pounds.

Backbench Business: Swansea Tidal Lagoon — [Mr Graham Brady in the Chair] (8 Mar 2016)

Byron Davies: Indeed; I totally agree with my hon. Friend, who makes a valid point. A study by the Centre for Economics and Business Research has found that a national fleet of six tidal lagoons would contribute something in the region of £27 billion to UK GDP during construction, as well as creating or sustaining 35,000 jobs on average and roughly 70,000 jobs at its peak. When operating, the fleet would...

Backbench Business: Swansea Tidal Lagoon — [Mr Graham Brady in the Chair] (8 Mar 2016)

Byron Davies: The hon. Lady makes a good point. The tidal lagoon has great benefits, including from a health point of view. Tidal Lagoon Power started work on Swansea bay in 2011 and has spent more than £30 million on the project to date. The company has been wholly privately financed by a number of private individuals, and more recently by a small number of institutional investors. The enterprise is...

Policing and Crime Bill (7 Mar 2016)

Byron Davies: I have had the privilege of hearing everybody speak in this debate, and I am delighted that I, too, now have the opportunity to participate. As a former Metropolitan police officer, I speak with some pride on this issue. I wish to make some brief observations, but, like my hon. Friend the Member for North West Hampshire (Kit Malthouse), I will start by saying that the Government are of...

Backbench Business — Gangs and Serious Youth Violence: Welsh Affairs (3 Mar 2016)

Byron Davies: When we had the first round of funding, the then First Minister, Rhodri Morgan, said it was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, but here we are now with a third round of funding. Would the hon. Gentleman like to comment on that?

Backbench Business — Gangs and Serious Youth Violence: Welsh Affairs (3 Mar 2016)

Byron Davies: I am grateful to have the opportunity to speak today. I congratulate the hon. Member for Aberavon (Stephen Kinnock) on securing this debate. I am very conscious of what he said about different Members having different matters to raise, as I have several areas of concern that I would like to discuss. I thought I would do that by taking Members on a very quick geographical tour of the south...

Backbench Business — Gangs and Serious Youth Violence: Welsh Affairs (3 Mar 2016)

Byron Davies: I am absolutely sure that my hon. Friend is right. I am amazed that the First Minister did not hold anyone to account and sack them. That perhaps speaks volumes. Indeed, Guernsey-based South Wales Land Developments, the preferred purchaser, which bought 15 sites for £21 million, has made £19 million by selling just a few of them. That casts a very dark shadow over what the Welsh Government...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Topical Questions (1 Mar 2016)

Byron Davies: The Chancellor will be aware that debates have been held and questions asked in the House regarding serious allegations of collusion between banks and valuers in order to deliberately undervalue and seize assets. Has he considered the current regulations on such banks and valuers, and whether there needs to be a broader remit for the Serious Fraud Office and other organisations to investigate...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Campaign against Daesh (29 Feb 2016)

Byron Davies: What recent discussions he has had with his international counterparts on progress in the campaign against Daesh.

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Campaign against Daesh (29 Feb 2016)

Byron Davies: Continuing on the theme of the Russian bombing, what are my right hon. Friend and the Government doing to highlight Russia’s indiscriminate behaviour, and what contact has he had with the Russian authorities to end this outrage?

Business of the House (25 Feb 2016)

Byron Davies: The Leader of the House will no doubt be aware that, over a short time span, two separate debates took place in Westminster Hall on serious allegations of collusion between banks and valuers in order deliberately to undervalue and then seize assets. Numerous other cases have now come to light, and more than 10 MPs of different parties have written to the Chairman of the Select Committee on...

Opposition Day — [19th Allotted Day] — Transitional State Pension Arrangements for Women: Police Funding, Crime and Community Safety (24 Feb 2016)

Byron Davies: Does the hon. Lady accept from me—I spent 32 years as a police officer—that the issue with mental health is not a new phenomenon but has always been the case?

Great Western Railway Routes (8 Feb 2016)

Byron Davies: You are making some important points. Would you accept that the electrification of the line down to Swansea by the Conservative Government is going to result in greatly increased social mobility for the people of the valleys?
