Public Bill Committee: Overseas Electors Bill: Extension of franchise for parliamentary elections: British citizens overseas (17 Oct 2018)

Glyn Davies: It is a pleasure to lead on a Bill with you in the Chair, Mr Robertson. We have spent some time together at sporting events; this is rather a new thing for us. I would also like to thank all Members who have agreed to serve on the Committee—it looks as if it might take some time before we reach the end. I will first make some general remarks about the Bill, then turn to the amendment.

Public Bill Committee: Overseas Electors Bill: Extension of franchise for parliamentary elections: British citizens overseas (17 Oct 2018)

Glyn Davies: I will take your advice, Mr Robertson, and I will move straight to the amendment, although I did have some quite important remarks to make. I understand that there have been calls, including today, for the voting age to be lowered, and there are different views across the House of Commons. Indeed, I have expressed my own views. I am surprised the Opposition spokesman did not dig out some of...

Overseas Electors Bill: Money (16 Oct 2018)

Glyn Davies: Let me begin by saying how pleased I was that the Bill received its Second Reading on 23 February, without a Division, and I very much hope it will now move forward to Committee. An Overseas Electors Act would introduce votes for life, removing an arbitrary rule that bars British citizens who have lived abroad for more than 15 years from voting in a general election. The Bill has been well...

Overseas Electors Bill: Money (16 Oct 2018)

Glyn Davies: I certainly do. That is an example of why the Bill is important. I know that others wish to speak, so I shall finish by saying that a detailed impact assessment has been submitted alongside the Bill. I refer right hon. and hon. Members to that impact assessment for a full overview of the costings.

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Kidneys: Donors (11 Oct 2018)

Glyn Davies: To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, what the total number of altruistic kidney organ donations has been in each of the last 10 years.

Colombia Peace Process — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (12 Sep 2018)

Glyn Davies: This is a hugely interesting debate on a subject that has increasingly become part of my intense interest in politics. I congratulate the hon. Member for Rhondda (Chris Bryant) on securing the debate and on raising issues that have stimulated that interest. I need to know a lot more about land ownership and land reform in Colombia, and I shall be going away to find out exactly what has...

Colombia Peace Process — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (12 Sep 2018)

Glyn Davies: That is not the impression that I have been receiving, but it is a perfectly valid point and I certainly think that that is how Uribe is seen. Nevertheless, I am sure the hon. Gentleman will agree that it is welcome if the new President is seen as having a degree of independence and being his own man, because he was sponsored, or at least supported, by Uribe in the election; we should welcome...

Colombia Peace Process — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (12 Sep 2018)

Glyn Davies: I thank the hon. Lady for that intervention and I do agree; indeed, that is the point I will now come to. Clearly, the new President faces some real issues that cause concern, and that concern is shared by everybody in the rest of the world who has a regard or a love for Colombia. One big issue is the control of the drug trade, and there is also the murder of human rights defenders in...

Care Homes: CCTV — [Sir David Crausby in the Chair] ( 5 Sep 2018)

Glyn Davies: I apologise that I will not be able to stay for the winding-up speeches, much as I would like to. I will have to depend on tomorrow’s Hansard to read the Minister’s response, which I am very much looking forward to. I have another meeting that I simply cannot avoid. In the past, I spent some time working with a care home in an advisory capacity, helping them to deliver the effective and...

Energy Policy (25 Jun 2018)

Glyn Davies: Like many others on both sides of the House, I am disappointed that the Swansea tidal lagoon and associated lagoons are not economically viable. The Government have a responsibility to protect the interests of consumers who pay electricity bills. What we all want to hear from the Secretary of State is that he is committed to looking at other schemes that might offer the potential to use tidal...

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: UK Tourism (10 May 2018)

Glyn Davies: The first stop for overseas visitors is so often London, but it is important that the economic benefits flowing from overseas visits are spread throughout Britain, and particularly to Wales. What steps is the Minister taking to ensure that visitors are encouraged to visit what Wales has to offer, including Powis castle in my constituency?

Other Proceedings: Welsh Affairs (19 Mar 2018)

Glyn Davies: I want to begin, as others have, by congratulating my good friend the hon. Member for Ynys Môn (Albert Owen) on securing today’s important debate. In keeping with this good spirit, I congratulate the Secretary of State on achieving two years in his esteemed and very important position. Like others, I also want to make brief reference to Lord Crickhowell, who died today. I knew him very...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements ( 7 Mar 2018)

Glyn Davies: The UK internal market is by far the most important market for British goods and services today and post-Brexit. Does the Prime Minister agree that the people and businesses of my constituency and across Wales are best served by the four nations of the United Kingdom working together constructively and positively to make Brexit a success?

Written Answers — Department for International Development: Developing Countries: Crops (28 Feb 2018)

Overseas Electors Bill (23 Feb 2018)

Glyn Davies: I beg to move, That the Bill be now read a Second time. I wish to say at the start, as an organ donation activist for more than 25 years, how excellent I thought the first debate today was. Although I did not agree with everything that was said, I thought it showed the UK Parliament excelling and at its very best, as the Bill’s promoter told us. My Bill is about extending the capacity of UK...

Overseas Electors Bill (23 Feb 2018)

Glyn Davies: I will, because he is such an honourable friend.

Overseas Electors Bill (23 Feb 2018)

Glyn Davies: I have always so admired my hon. Friend’s brass neck that I am probably going to accede to his request. I was intending to do this, so while pointing out to the Chamber why I am intending to keep my comments brief, let me say that giving him the opportunity to put his Bill forward later this afternoon is something I rather approve of. Now then, where did I get to? I was starting off with...

Overseas Electors Bill (23 Feb 2018)

Glyn Davies: I thank my right hon. Friend for that intervention on a point to which I shall come later. Of the three points on which I shall concentrate, the first is fairness to UK citizens who live abroad and who have moved around for various reasons but want to remain part of our democratic process and not have their involvement cut short after 15 years. Secondly, as my right hon. Friend the Member...

Overseas Electors Bill (23 Feb 2018)

Glyn Davies: That is another issue to which I shall refer later. As I build the three points I wish to make, that will be very much part of the first. My third point is about why it is right to revisit an issue—the restriction of overseas UK citizens’ ability to vote—that Parliament has considered previously. What has changed? On my first point, fairness, many British citizens who have moved...
