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”....

Business of the House (Today): UK’s Withdrawal from the EU (14 Feb 2019)

David Davies: Over the past three years, those of us who voted for Brexit have been treated with scorn and contempt. We have been derided as a bunch of uneducated, bigoted tabloid readers living outside the M25. In an attempt to try to get us to change our minds, Members on both sides of the House—in and out—various banks and businesses and all sorts of remain-supporting groups have adopted a sort of...

Prime Minister’s Statement (19 Oct 2019)

David Davies: The people of Wales voted to leave, but many had concerns about a no-deal Brexit. Can I thank the Prime Minister for coming forward with a deal that respects the result in Wales and delivers on the concerns of those who did not want a hard Brexit? As the Welsh would say: mae’n hi’n bryd. Diolch yn fawr.

Privilege (Withdrawal Agreement: Legal Advice) (4 Dec 2018)

David Davies: Publishing the legal advice on the Brexit Bill would be a “dangerous precedent”. Those are not my words, but the words of Mike Russell, MSP, who back in March was the Scottish National party’s Brexit Minister. He was talking about the UK Withdrawal from the European Union (Legal Continuity) (Scotland) Bill. He refused to publish the legal advice because, he said, it would set a...

ST David’S Day (28 Feb 2019)

David Davies: There is a very strong case for that as well, but I am deviating now slightly from the subject of Wales and running over my six minutes. I cannot really not mention Brexit. The fact of the matter is that we are not going to get any consensus around this at all. I am strongly in favour of Brexit and the people of Wales have voted for Brexit. I have a slight regret that we did not go off to...

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....

Leaving the EU: European Union (Withdrawal) Act (14 Jan 2019)

David Davies: ...Government and the Prime Minister, they now seek to vote the whole thing down, not because they want a second referendum, a Norway deal or something else, but because they do not want any kind of Brexit at all. They will, of course, be joined in voting down the motion by principled, decent Members of Parliament, like my hon. Friend the Member for South Dorset (Richard Drax), who believe...

Other Proceedings: Welsh Affairs (19 Mar 2018)

David Davies: I have been given only 10 minutes, and I would like to move on to the subject of Brexit, which, after all, is a matter of some interest to all of us at the moment. I commend my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union for the enormous amount of extra power that he will give the Welsh Assembly and the Scottish Parliament, although, if I were anything less than a...

20 Years of Devolution (11 Jul 2019)

David Davies: ...Welsh Assembly Members who owe their jobs to a referendum that took place 20 years ago are now doing their utmost to try to ignore the will of the people of Wales in the subsequent referendum on Brexit, where a much larger number of people turned out and voted by a much clearer majority in favour of Brexit. I hope that the hon. Member for Perth and North Perthshire, who believes that we...

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?

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?

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.

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?

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?

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Leaving the EU: Departmental Preparation (7 Dec 2017)

David Davies: ...our support for glyphosate, which protects the environment by reducing the need for excess tillage and the need to use other herbicides? With he continue to support this safe herbicide once Brexit has taken place?

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Legislative Consent Motion (13 Dec 2017)

David Davies: ...who claim to represent Wales—and indeed any party that claims to be the party of Wales—support this Government and this Prime Minister in delivering the legislative consent motion and the Brexit that the people of Wales voted for?

Leaving the Eu: Negotiations (10 Jul 2018)

David Davies: Not only did we have a referendum, but we had a general election in which more than 85% of the public voted for Brexit-supporting parties. Around 5% voted for the Liberal Democrats. What right do they have to tell us what the people are thinking? The people are certainly not agreeing with the Lib Dems.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (18 Jul 2018)

David Davies: The Prime Minister’s proposals offer a practical and reasoned way to deliver Brexit. Does she agree that it is high time that Labour MPs, and, yes, some Conservatives, stop the fear-mongering, get behind their country and support the Prime Minister as she leads us out of the European Union?

European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018: Statutory Obligations on Ministers (11 Dec 2018)

David Davies: ...compromises that have been put forward, at what point will he withdraw the offer of £39 billion for the bureaucracy in Brussels and spend it preparing for the full, clean, World Trade Organisation Brexit that over 17 million people have voted for?
