Results 1–20 of 48 for brexit speaker:David Davies

Wales Bill: Super-majority requirement for certain legislation (5 Jul 2016)

David Davies: ...Switzerland and Norway are Europeans and may be proud to be European? They are just as European as anyone else in Europe, and he would be just as European as a Norwegian or a Swiss person is after Brexit takes place.

International Trade: Trade Barriers: Potential Cost (8 Sep 2016)

David Davies: Do Ministers agree that Britain voted overwhelmingly for Brexit and we should stop listening to the doom-mongers, recognise the democratic will of 17 million people, and all work together to make this the huge success it is going to be?

The BBC and Political Impartiality — [Geraint Davies in the Chair] (14 Sep 2016)

David Davies: ...programme, but many others and many other aspects of the BBC. I took a few examples of this from the website earlier. I do not want to go through all of them, but an article asked, “Was there a Brexit graduate gap?” to try and perhaps suggest that people voting to leave the EU were not intelligent. Another article said, “PM condemns ‘despicable’ post-EU referendum hate crimes”....

Rights of EU Nationals (19 Oct 2016)

David Davies: ...this, and quite right too; there is nothing wrong with that. But what I find concerning is that the hon. and learned Lady and others seem to have tried to make a correlation between hate crime and Brexit, and the clear and worrying implication of what they are doing is to suggest that the 17.2 million people who legitimately voted for Brexit are in some way responsible for hate crimes....

Rights of EU Nationals (19 Oct 2016)

David Davies: ...is absolutely fine. We do recognise the contribution that is being made by EU migrants within the UK, and the Government are doing everything they can to ensure that their rights are respected post-Brexit. The whole point of what the Government are doing at the moment is to say to other EU nations and to the EU itself, “Look, we’ve got 3 million people here. We want to protect their...

Rights of EU Nationals (19 Oct 2016)

David Davies: ...realised that their blinkered view of how people should live their lives was not going to prevail because people do demand freedom. We are not in the business of erecting a wall as a result of Brexit; we are in the business of taking down a wall—a much less violent wall but one that exists around the European Union—going out into the world and giving people the freedom to trade and to...

Exiting the European Union: Article 50 (20 Oct 2016)

David Davies: Does my right hon. Friend agree that this Government are absolutely right to deliver the Brexit that 17.2 million people voted for, and to do it in a responsible fashion that allows it to deliver the great deal for Britain that we know it is going to deliver?

The Secretary of State Was Asked: Leaving the EU (30 Nov 2016)

David Davies: Does my right hon. Friend agree that the people of Wales voted clearly for Brexit and they do not need to be represented by the SNP or the Welsh Assembly Government who are ignoring their views, but will be pleased to have a Conservative Government and an excellent Secretary of State for Wales who will carry out their wishes?

State Pension Age: Women (30 Nov 2016)

David Davies: ...that they are doing something great to reform the country, whether it is giving more choice in the national health service, freeing up schools from local authority control or even delivering on Brexit. There are other times when we support our Ministers because we know they are taking difficult decisions for all the right reasons, because one of the centrepieces of this Government’s...

Casey Report (6 Dec 2016)

David Davies: The Minister will be aware that the last two Muslims to be murdered in hate crimes were murdered not by Brexit supporters but by other Muslims. Does that not show the importance of implementing this report and demanding that all communities sign up to gay rights, women’s rights and the right to interpret religion in any way one wishes?

The Government's Plan for Brexit (7 Dec 2016)

David Davies: ..., but I hope they will remind them that they owe their existence to a referendum that had a much smaller turnout and a much narrower majority than the one that has delivered us the mandate for Brexit. I hope they will remind them that the people of Wales voted to leave the European Union, and that the Welsh Labour party is not speaking for Wales when it comes to meet Ministers. I hope they...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Exiting the EU (18 Jan 2017)

David Davies: Adam Smith gave us the theory of modern capitalist economics and William Gladstone put it into practice. Would not those two fine Scotsmen be delighted by the opportunity that Brexit offers to ditch the socialist protectionism of the Scottish Government, and to implement the free trade and free markets that made the country such a powerhouse in the 19th century?

Leaving the Eu: Security, Law Enforcement and Criminal Justice (18 Jan 2017)

David Davies: My hon. Friend makes an important point. I have listened with great interest to what has been said in this debate. I was of course a supporter of Brexit, but that in no way means I oppose the EAW or the principles behind it.

Leaving the Eu: Security, Law Enforcement and Criminal Justice (18 Jan 2017)

David Davies: ...who is living in this country is paying a price in terms of their human rights in order to reduce bureaucracy and improve an extradition procedure. We need to think very carefully about that price. Brexit offers us an opportunity. I have no problem with the countries my hon. Friend the Member for Bromley and Chislehurst (Robert Neill) mentioned—Germany or France—or indeed many other...

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill: [2nd day] (1 Feb 2017)

David Davies: ..., we did not have any hedge funders behind us, otherwise I probably would have done. There were wiser voices, such as those of: Lord Bourne, now the Communities and Local Government Minister; the Brexit Minister himself, my right hon. Friend the Member for Clwyd West (Mr Jones), who sits on the Front Bench and does such a good job for us; and the Secretary of State for Wales. They have...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Leaving the EU: Fisheries (2 Mar 2017)

David Davies: As the Minister will know, current EU regulations prevent farmers from trimming hedges in August. Does he agree that Brexit therefore offers a great opportunity for trimming the regulations and rules that prevent hedge cutting at that time?

Backbench Business (20 Apr 2017)

David Davies: I beg to move, That this House has considered the European Arrest Warrant. Mr Evans, you will be aware that back in January this year, there was a debate on the issue of Brexit and security, and I was one of a number of Members of Parliament who raised concerns about the European arrest warrant. It is fair to say that people had widely different opinions, but I gleaned that a number shared my...

G20 (10 Jul 2017)

David Davies: Given that the vast majority of Members of Parliament, including the Leader of the Opposition, stood on an election platform explicitly backing Brexit, is it not time that people stopped using these negotiations for either political or even personal advantage and united behind the Prime Minister, allowing her and her Ministers to get on with delivering a deal that works for the whole of Britain?

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Unemployment (24 Oct 2017)

David Davies: Will my right hon. Friend confirm that despite all the fearmongering from many, including Opposition Members, since the Brexit referendum, we have the best growth rates and best inward investment rates in the whole of Europe, and the lowest unemployment rates for four decades? Is that not a ringing endorsement of this Government’s policies?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: “Creation of UK-wide frameworks (4 Dec 2017)

David Davies: ..., but it will certainly happen again. So I completely support what the Government are doing here today. They are doing what all those on the other side of the House are calling for: bringing about Brexit in a stable and controlled fashion that allows us to move forward with certainty. It is inevitable that this will lead to further powers going to the devolved Parliaments—it may not...
