Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office: Topical Questions (13 Jun 2023)

Backbench Business: Obesity and Fatty Liver Disease — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] ( 8 Jun 2023)

Wayne David: We have had an excellent debate. The Chamber has heard contributions from six Members, and although they have been from different political parties there has been a unanimity among them about the importance of the issue and some of the measures that need to be put in place urgently to tackle the fatty liver disease crisis. The Minister has made some positive remarks, it has to be said, but I...

Backbench Business: Obesity and Fatty Liver Disease — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] ( 8 Jun 2023)

Wayne David: I note that the Minister said there is Government support—in a limited way, at the moment—for weight loss drugs. I welcome that, but I am cautious; there is a real danger of placing too much emphasis on drugs as a way to lose weight. They can be in addition to other measures, but those other measures are critical. I welcome the Minister’s views on that, but there is a danger of putting...

Backbench Business: Obesity and Fatty Liver Disease — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] ( 8 Jun 2023)

Wayne David: I think there was an intake of breath in the Chamber when the Minister mentioned October 2025 for the introduction of the limit on advertising. Is there any way that he would support measures to circumvent the excessively long delay? I think the will is there; it is a question of just dotting the i’s and crossing the t’s to ensure that everybody is on board. That can be done relatively...

Backbench Business: Obesity and Fatty Liver Disease — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] ( 8 Jun 2023)

Wayne David: I beg to move, That this House has considered the matter of preventing obesity and fatty liver disease. It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Hollobone. I am truly grateful to the 19 right hon. and hon. Members from across the House and from all parties who supported the application for this debate. I am the chair of the all-party parliamentary group on liver disease and liver...

Kosovo ( 5 Jun 2023)

Wayne David: In the region there is, as we all know, a hidden agenda being pursued by Russia and its supporters. But at this precise moment, does the right hon. Gentleman agree that what is needed is a real, huge effort to de-escalate the situation? The former UN special envoy to the Balkans and former Swedish Prime Minister, Carl Bildt, has called for an unprecedented “robust diplomacy” to be...

CPTPP: Conclusion of Negotiations (17 Apr 2023)

Wayne David: What prior discussions where there with the devolved institutions about the UK Government’s negotiating position, and what is going to happen now? Will there be consultation on the ratification process?

Fuel Costs: Rural Households and Communities: Spring Budget: Wales — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (29 Mar 2023)

Fuel Costs: Rural Households and Communities: Spring Budget: Wales — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (29 Mar 2023)

Wayne David: Does my hon. Friend share my concern that local authorities believe there is, unfortunately, a distinct possibility that they will be unable to spend the moneys that have been allocated, and we will see yet another clawback by the Government up here?

Fuel Costs: Rural Households and Communities: Spring Budget: Wales — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (29 Mar 2023)

Wayne David: Not only is poverty bad in itself, but it also creates enormous pressure on the health service, because there is a direct correlation between low income and poor health.

Fuel Costs: Rural Households and Communities: Spring Budget: Wales — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (29 Mar 2023)

Wayne David: I welcome the announcement by the Government on Great British Nuclear, belated though it is, but does the hon. Lady think it is certain? If so, perhaps she would like to say on what date nuclear on Wylfa will be given the go-ahead.

Fuel Costs: Rural Households and Communities: Spring Budget: Wales — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (29 Mar 2023)

Wayne David: Is my hon. Friend aware of the Bevan Foundation report? Only last month, its in-depth analysis showed that it is the poorest people, the elderly, the disabled and people who are renting socially who are suffering most from the cost of living crisis.

Illegal Migration Bill: Clause 37 - Suspensive claims: interpretation (27 Mar 2023)

Wayne David: Is it appropriate, in the hon. Gentleman’s view, that former RAF camps are now being used and planned to be used for migrants?

Illegal Migration Bill: Clause 37 - Suspensive claims: interpretation (27 Mar 2023)

Wayne David: Does my hon. Friend share my concern that so far the Bill comes with no children’s rights impact assessment? We are desperately concerned about the plight of children.

Business of the House (23 Mar 2023)

Wayne David: On 23 January, the BBC broadcast an excellent “Panorama” programme that focused on dangerous dogs. It cited a loophole in the regulations on dog breeding. I wrote to the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs following that programme, asking what measures the Government were considering taking to close the loophole. I received a reply, but there is no attempt...

Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories (23 Mar 2023)

Wayne David: As the Minister has said, the settlements on the west bank are illegal and they undermine the possibility of a two-state solution, so will the Government make it absolutely clear to Benjamin Netanyahu that any attempt to annex the west bank is totally and unequivocally unacceptable?

Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation - Income Tax (Charge) (20 Mar 2023)

Wayne David: I think it is fair to say that there are few surprises in the Budget. Many of the announcements were expected, and quite a few of them were borrowed from the Labour party, but a significant rabbit was pulled out of the hat—and it was a really big one. It was announced that there will be a £1 billion tax cut for the richest 1% through changes to tax allowances. Someone with a £2 million...
