Legislation on Dangerous Dogs — [Dame Caroline Dinenage in the Chair] (27 Nov 2023)

Wayne David: The hon. Member is making a very good case, but does he recognise the danger that, by putting the focus on this one piece of legislation and by talking generally of other issues in the future, the impression will be given that one statutory instrument will be sufficient to tackle the problem? Is there not a danger that people will come to believe that, even though we know it not to be the case?

Legislation on Dangerous Dogs — [Dame Caroline Dinenage in the Chair] (27 Nov 2023)

Wayne David: The hon. Member and I visited the Hope Rescue centre in Llanharan a few months ago, where we saw and heard many moving things.

That brought home to me how illegal breeding is such a menace and really needs to be clamped down on....

Legislation on Dangerous Dogs — [Dame Caroline Dinenage in the Chair] (27 Nov 2023)

Wayne David: My hon. Friend has made a number of very good points indeed. Does he share my concern about the Government’s introduction of a ban on XL bullies? Many of the illegal breeders are quite unscrupulous individuals, as he has mentioned; if action is not taken against them, they will simply move on and create another kind of dog. As he says, the XL bully is not a distinct breed but an...

Legislation on Dangerous Dogs — [Dame Caroline Dinenage in the Chair] (27 Nov 2023)

Wayne David: Emma, whose son, Jack, was brutally killed by an XL bully dog two years ago, is my constituent. Emma is of the opinion that, whatever happens with regards to a ban on XL bullies—the hon. Member has touched upon the enormous difficulties and complications—it is vital that we place the emphasis on tackling the whole issue of dangerous dogs. A one-off action by the Government is not enough;...

Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office: Iran: Support for Hamas (24 Oct 2023)

Wayne David: Following on from the question of the hon. Member for Oxford West and Abingdon (Layla Moran), I emphasise that Labour has been calling on the Government for many months to proscribe the IRGC. Evidence is emerging of Iranian involvement in the Hamas terrorist attack in Israel. We also understand that the United States has called on the United Kingdom to follow its example.

UK Support for Stability in Libya — [Siobhain McDonagh in the Chair] (18 Oct 2023)

We must do everything we can to secure peace in that troubled area. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for...

Ann Clwyd (19 Sep 2023)

Wayne David: I knew Ann for 40 years, and above all else, she was an internationalist; she cared about people and human rights. I remember that on one occasion she was dismissed from the Front Bench because she went to Kurdistan to show solidarity with the people there, without permission from the Whips. She was a passionate believer in the rights of people throughout the world. She should be remembered...
