Kurdistan Region of Iraq — [Hannah Bardell in the Chair] ( 7 Feb 2024)

Wayne David: It is a pleasure to serve under you today, Ms Bardell. I congratulate the hon. Member for Filton and Bradley Stoke (Jack Lopresti) on securing this debate. He has been to Kurdistan on a number of occasions and is chair of the all-party parliamentary group on the Kurdistan region in Iraq. I am one of the vice-chairs of the APPG, and I know that its members have a great deal of knowledge about...

Iran: Freedom and Democracy ( 1 Feb 2024)

Wayne David: I commend the hon. Member for Harrow East (Bob Blackman) for introducing this debate and the Backbench Business Committee for allowing the time for it. This debate is important and timely. Although we have had only a few contributions, they have been significant and important. The hon. Member mentioned the Ashraf 3 camp in Albania, and although it is not entirely clear what has happened...

Wales: Cost of Living (31 Jan 2024)

Wayne David: What recent discussions he has had with Cabinet colleagues on the cost of living in Wales.

Wales: Cost of Living (31 Jan 2024)

Wayne David: Citizens Advice Cymru has stated that during 2023, it referred over 21,000 people to food banks in Wales, almost double the number for 2021. What does that say about the impact of the Government’s policies on ordinary people in Wales?

Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office: Middle East: Conflict Prevention (30 Jan 2024)

Wayne David: Today the middle east is in danger of seeing a major escalation of conflict, and whether it is in Gaza, the Red sea, Lebanon, Iraq, Syria or Jordan, we are seeing aggression. If there is a common denominator in those conflicts, it is the malign influence of Iran, usually through its proxies. What are the Government doing to disrupt and stop the disruptive activities of Iran?

Situation in the Red Sea (24 Jan 2024)

Wayne David: We have had an excellent debate. It is true that it has been wide-ranging on occasions, but it has also been thoughtful, frank and, at times, passionate. I certainly hope that the Defence Secretary will take the trouble to read Hansard tomorrow to at least be aware of the excellent contributions that have been made. It has been interesting to listen to the contributions about whether...

Situation in the Red Sea (24 Jan 2024)

Wayne David: Thank you.

Situation in the Red Sea (24 Jan 2024)

Wayne David: I will make no comment about that. This debate is seriously important because, as I think we all agree, there has to be Government accountability for the action that they take. I am therefore genuinely pleased that the debate has taken place, and hope that further such debates take place in future.

Situation in the Red Sea (24 Jan 2024)

Wayne David: I am sure that Members have noted the hon. Gentleman’s comment, and am sure that when we have a detailed debate on that issue, his comment will weigh heavily on people’s minds. This debate is important because accountability is vital. As we have made clear on a number of occasions, the Labour party supports this limited, targeted action. We do so because it is important to protect...

Situation in the Red Sea (24 Jan 2024)

Wayne David: The right hon. Gentleman makes a very important point, which reinforces the essential point that action is not only justified and lawful, but necessary to prevent that kind of violence and aggression by this rag-tag of terrorists called the Houthis. It is significant that the actions of the United States and the United Kingdom have logistical support from Australia, Bahrain, Canada and the...

Written Answers — Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office: Kurds: Foreign Relations (19 Jan 2024)

Wayne David: To ask the Minister of State, Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office, if the Secretary of State for Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Affairs will meet the Prime Minister of the Kurdistan Regional Government at the World Economic Forum in Davos.

Arms Export Licences: Israel — [Sir Christopher Chope in the Chair] (12 Dec 2023)

Wayne David: It is a pleasure to serve under you, Sir Christopher. I begin by thanking my hon. Friend the Member for Coventry South (Zarah Sultana) for securing this undoubtedly important debate. Like many other Members, I have received many emails from concerned constituents about this issue. As we all recognise, the humanitarian situation in Gaza is dire in the extreme. Following the horrific attacks...

Arms Export Licences: Israel — [Sir Christopher Chope in the Chair] (12 Dec 2023)

Wayne David: The hon. Lady makes her point extremely well. That is why we need transparency. I cannot honestly respond to her question because I do not know; I do not think anybody knows, apart from the Government. Transparency is vital, and it is imperative that we have the scrutiny of Parliament in the future. These rules should apply consistently and equally to all countries. Specifically with regard...

Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office: Israel and International Law (12 Dec 2023)

Wayne David: Recently the International Criminal Court prosecutor, Karim Khan KC, visited Israel and the west bank. In relation to Gaza, he stated: “A law is not some cosmetic adornment that can be disregarded. It’s a fundamental requirement that must be complied with.” I assume the Minister will agree with that. If that is the case, will he ensure that Britain co-operates fully with the prosecutor...

Israel and Palestine — [Sir Mark Hendrick in the Chair] (11 Dec 2023)

Wayne David: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairpersonship, Mr McCabe. No one can doubt the gravity of the situation in Gaza. Despite what we see on our television screens night after night, we cannot begin to understand the horror for the people of Gaza, who live through this terror day in, day out. It is particularly moving and distressing to see so many children who have lost their lives and are...

Israel and Palestine — [Sir Mark Hendrick in the Chair] (11 Dec 2023)

Wayne David: My hon. Friend makes a very good point indeed. It is very important that if we are going to move towards a two-state solution—I will say a little bit more about that in the future—it is necessary for us to recognise that political change and moderation is needed on both sides. We cannot have a situation where Hamas are seen to be the dominant Palestinian voice—they are not,...

Israel and Palestine — [Sir Mark Hendrick in the Chair] (11 Dec 2023)

Wayne David: First, I do recognise that Israel is a democratic state, but at the same time I recognise that a minority of politicians—albeit duly elected—do not articulate what is the view of most Israeli people; that is why it is important for us to stress moderation. I am someone who has been to both the west bank and Israel, and I strongly believe that the vast majority of everyone I met wants...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Liver Diseases: Screening (11 Dec 2023)

Wayne David: To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, what assessment she has made of the potential merits of expanding the FibroScan rollout to community diagnostic centres in areas with high prevalence of liver disease.
