Electric and Low-emission Vehicles (15 Jun 2016)

Glyn Davies: My hon. Friend is absolutely right. We do not know exactly what the future holds. We should use the term “ultra-low emission vehicles,” rather than “electric vehicles,” because hydrogen fuel cell technology may well develop quicker. Things change incredibly quickly. It is only five years since the companies starting producing electric cars. In another five years, who knows? Hydrogen...

Electric and Low-emission Vehicles (15 Jun 2016)

Glyn Davies: I thank my hon. Friend for that intervention. That is a comment I have heard before. However, we are developing a completely new technology. The aim is lower emissions. We are trying to reach a decarbonisation target. Unless we achieve the aim of decarbonisation, this industry will not deliver what we want. However, I think that in the longer run, this is the route that we will go down....

Electric and Low-emission Vehicles (15 Jun 2016)

Glyn Davies: Again, that is a hugely helpful contribution to the debate. I am on the Environment and Climate Change Committee with my hon. Friend, and we know how important the development of storage is for the future. Electric cars are potentially one of the major means of storage. If their use develops quickly, as I expect it to, they will be a major contributor right across the board to our meeting our...

Wales Bill (14 Jun 2016)

Glyn Davies: I think Owain Glyndwr lived a significant part of his life in my constituency of Montgomeryshire—in Sycharth in Llansilin.

Wales Bill (14 Jun 2016)

Glyn Davies: It is a pleasure to follow my friend and neighbour the hon. Member for Ceredigion (Mr Williams), who, as always—but he is not even listening to me as I congratulate him on the quality of his speech! It is also a pleasure to have been in the Chamber for most of the debate, and to have heard some fairly strong opinions delivered in such a reasonable way. It has been a constructive debate,...

Wales Bill (14 Jun 2016)

Glyn Davies: Are you intervening on me or on the hon. Gentleman? Go on!

Wales Bill (14 Jun 2016)

Glyn Davies: I thank my hon. Friend; that is exactly what I was going to say. I also want to touch on the question of devolution in regard to energy. We all pay a price when we support a Bill that is as comprehensive as this one, because there are often parts of the Bill with which we are very uncomfortable, and I have to say that devolving power over wind farms up to 350 MW to the Welsh Government really...

Wales Bill (14 Jun 2016)

Glyn Davies: To follow on from the point that the hon. Member for Ynys Môn (Albert Owen) made, devolution to local government is fine. The British Government have devolved planning to local authorities, but the first thing the Welsh Government did was to take that power away from local authorities and centralise it to themselves. Planning powers are devolved to local authorities in England but...

Wales Bill (14 Jun 2016)

Glyn Davies: What is the position where an overhead power line goes through England and Wales? I am talking not just about the connection point but about a significant part of the power line. Is the position on that clear in the Bill?

BBC White Paper ( 8 Jun 2016)

Glyn Davies: Thank you for calling me to speak in this important debate, Madam Deputy Speaker. It is always a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Bishop Auckland (Helen Goodman), and it has been a pleasure to listen to her contribution. I nearly always agree with about half of what she says. I shall limit myself to making one main point. I am grateful to you for squeezing me into the debate, Madam...

Written Answers — Attorney General: Fraud: Crime Prevention (26 May 2016)

Glyn Davies: To ask the Attorney General, what assessment he has made of the potential effect of introducing a new criminal offence of failure to prevent economic crime on the number of prosecutions for such crimes.

Debate on the Address: Education, Skills and Training (25 May 2016)

Glyn Davies: It is a great pleasure to follow the considered tone of the hon. Member for Darlington (Jenny Chapman), whose speeches I always greatly enjoy. Every year since I was elected in 2010, I have been overwhelmed by the pageantry associated with the Queen’s Speech, particularly the horses and the evocative sights and sounds that accompany the occasion. For a variety of reasons, however, I have...

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: S4C (25 May 2016)

Glyn Davies: S4C is crucial to Wales, and particularly to the Welsh language. Does my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State agree that the Welsh language is too often seen as the secondary language in Wales? It is not a secondary language; it is at least equal first.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: North Sea Oil and Gas (11 May 2016)

Glyn Davies: What steps the Government are taking to support the North sea oil and gas sector.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: North Sea Oil and Gas (11 May 2016)

Glyn Davies: Does the Minister agree that we need a long-term approach to secure the future of the jobs in the oil and gas sector in the North sea, and that part of that future is about making sure the skills that have been developed over many decades are not lost at a time when world prices are very low?

UK Dairy Sector — [Joan Ryan in the Chair] (20 Apr 2016)

Glyn Davies: I am grateful for the opportunity to speak early in this debate. To some extent, I had been hoping to hear all the other speeches and use them to contribute to mine. I congratulate the hon. Member for Ceredigion (Mr Williams) not only on raising such an important debate, but on doing so in an excellent way. There was hardly a single comment that I disagreed with. He has raised most of the...

Written Answers — Northern Ireland Office: Organised Crime: Ireland (20 Apr 2016)

Glyn Davies: To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland, what discussions she has had with the Irish government on cross-border efforts to stop organised crime.

Backbench Business: Bowel Cancer Screening Age ( 8 Mar 2016)

Glyn Davies: My hon. Friend makes reference to personal experience. I would not be here today without an early diagnosis of the bowel cancer I suffered. I had an operation that left me with a stoma, and I am living proof that someone can make a 100% recovery and even become a Member of Parliament, if they work hard. I hope my hon. Friend agrees that one of the big benefits of screening is not only the...

Backbench Business: Swansea Tidal Lagoon — [Mr Graham Brady in the Chair] ( 8 Mar 2016)

Glyn Davies: It is clear from the debate that everybody, across parties, thinks that this is a wonderful scheme and would like it to go ahead, but we know from experience that such schemes go ahead only if a satisfactory economic case is made. Does the hon. Lady welcome the review and the work going forward? The Government will be in a position to recognise the benefits, and it will confirm that the...
