Opposition Day — [9th Allotted Day]: Policing (4 Nov 2015)

Byron Davies: I am delighted to be able to speak on this subject of such great importance, and to declare an interest in it. I had 32 very happy years in the Metropolitan police service as a detective serving in the counter-terrorist command and the national crime squad. Not surprisingly, this motion has some fundamental flaws in the way that Labour frames its arguments about policing. It is far too...

Opposition Day — [9th Allotted Day]: Policing (4 Nov 2015)

Byron Davies: It is about how people are managed and deployed, and managers have to be trained to do that properly. That is the argument. The police are making serious efforts to tackle knife crime and they are making some important changes. The police are there to investigate, prosecute and tackle knife crime. That brings me on to something that is missing from the Labour motion. It states that...

Opposition Day — [9th Allotted Day]: Policing (4 Nov 2015)

Byron Davies: If everybody is doing such a good job, why is the chief constable leaving after such a short time?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Draft Investigatory Powers Bill (4 Nov 2015)

Byron Davies: Lord Carlile, the former terrorism laws watchdog, has said that there has been a lot of demonisation of the police and security services over their intentions regarding this information. He also said: “I think it’s absurd to suggest that the police and the security services have a kind of casual desire to intrude on the privacy of the innocent.” Does my right hon. Friend support that view?

Public Bill Committee: Immigration Bill: Clause 1 - Director of Labour Market Enforcement (27 Oct 2015)

Byron Davies: Does the hon. Lady accept that when I worked as a police officer in Romania, young ladies who wanted to come to the UK through Spain would look for a trafficker to facilitate that journey to Spain and the UK? That is trafficking, contrary to what the hon. Lady is suggesting.

Public Bill Committee: Immigration Bill: Examination of Witnesses (22 Oct 2015)

Byron Davies: I have sat here for two days listening to people say that so many things are wrong with the system as it is at the moment, some of them picking faults with the Bill. I understand that UNHCR, for example, thinks that discontinuing support is unlikely to encourage people to go home. I do not know whether the panel shares that view. If you can justify that, I would like to hear your comments....

Public Bill Committee: Immigration Bill: Examination of Witnesses (22 Oct 2015)

Byron Davies: What is the answer to this? What is the solution?

Public Bill Committee: Immigration Bill: Examination of Witnesses (22 Oct 2015)

Byron Davies: I would like to ask the panel a more general question concerning a group of people who have not been mentioned yet: the great British public. Over a period of several years of knocking on doors speaking to many thousands of people, the issue of immigration has not failed to raise its head, hence the Bill before us. This issue comes up all the time. What assessment would you as a panel make of...

Public Bill Committee: Immigration Bill: Examination of Witnesses (20 Oct 2015)

Byron Davies: Mr Snelling, leading on from the Minister’s questions—it is perhaps a little out of context now—on this fear about the stop and search issues, do the immigration authorities have access to the police national computer? Can they flag up on the PNC whether somebody is an illegal immigrant?

Public Bill Committee: Immigration Bill: Examination of Witnesses (20 Oct 2015)

Byron Davies: Lord Green, in response to an earlier question, you talked about an effective removal system. Could you expand on that and tell us what you think would be an effective removal system?

Public Bill Committee: Immigration Bill: Examination of Witnesses (20 Oct 2015)

Byron Davies: Good morning. I have heard what you have said in answer to the questions about what is proposed in the Bill. You have given your objections to what is in the Bill, so can I ask you what you think is the way forward to effect behavioural change? What is your answer to it?

Public Bill Committee: Immigration Bill: Examination of Witnesses (20 Oct 2015)

Byron Davies: Anyone else have a view on that?

Public Bill Committee: Immigration Bill: Examination of Witnesses (20 Oct 2015)

Byron Davies: Caroline, you mentioned the extent of harbouring. You talked about the Romanian case on Channel 4. What is the extent of this, and what is the evidence?

Public Bill Committee: Immigration Bill: Examination of Witnesses (20 Oct 2015)

Byron Davies: What would your definition of harbouring be, out of interest?

Bills Presented: Immigration Bill (13 Oct 2015)

Byron Davies: I am pleased to speak about this important Bill, and I look forward to taking a full and active part in scrutinising it as it continues its passage through Parliament. It is fair to say that the Bill has created much debate in all corners of British public life. From non-governmental organisations to the media, we have seen some excellent and incisive analysis of it, albeit some rather less...

Written Answers — Ministry of Justice: Corruption (28 Sep 2015)
