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

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.

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Leaving the EU: No Deal (4 Sep 2019)

David Davies: Wales will benefit from Brexit with or without a deal. Does the Secretary of State agree that we could deliver an extra boost to the economy of south Wales by devolving air passenger duty to the Welsh Government, allowing them to cut that tax in Wales, which would put Wales on an equal footing with Scotland and Northern Ireland?

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Further Devolution (24 Jul 2019)

David Davies: ..., under our excellent new Prime Minister. Will my right hon. Friend confirm that, when we do so, 100 extra powers will be devolved to the Scottish Parliament, meaning that Conservatives and Brexiteers are the true friends of devolution and a strong Scottish Parliament?

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...

20 Years of Devolution (11 Jul 2019)

David Davies: ...am happy to see the Assembly getting powers over issues such as air passenger duty, which is something that we recommended strongly in our report. It is a pity that I have not got time to get on to Brexit and to point out the obvious contradiction in the fact that, while the Scottish National party and Plaid Cymru rightly make points about Catalonia, it is the European Union that is...

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Unemployment Trends (13 May 2019)

David Davies: ...figures do indeed show that Britain’s economy is booming, unlike those of the rest of the European Union. Do the Minister and his colleagues on the ministerial team agree that the prospect of Brexit, with or without a deal, is driving forward the British economy and confidence in it?

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: UK Shared Prosperity Fund (3 Apr 2019)

David Davies: Does my right hon. Friend agree that the UK shared prosperity fund offers a cast-iron guarantee that Wales is not going to lose out financially as a result of Brexit, and will he consider ensuring that that money goes directly to local authorities so it is spent in the best possible way?

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Seasonal Agricultural Workers Scheme (28 Mar 2019)

David Davies: Does my right hon. Friend agree that the pilot underlines the Government’s commitment to ensuring that farmers have certainty post Brexit, and that the one way to ensure that that certainty continues is to vote for the deal when it comes back before the House?

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...

Exiting the European Union: Devolved Administrations: Talks (28 Feb 2019)

David Davies: When my hon. Friend meets Members of the Welsh Assembly does he remind them that the people of Wales voted for Brexit with far greater enthusiasm than they voted for a Welsh Assembly? Will he urge them, along with some of the more recalcitrant members of the Cabinet, to get behind the Prime Minister and deliver Britain out of the EU with or without a deal by the end of March?

Exiting the European Union: Topical Questions (28 Feb 2019)

David Davies: Does my right hon. Friend agree that if a no-deal Brexit was really akin to the arrival of the four horsemen of the apocalypse, Members in all parts of the House would be rallying behind the Prime Minister to support the deal that will get us out by the end of March?

Honda in Swindon (19 Feb 2019)

David Davies: ..., what does my right hon. Friend think is more surprising: that some of these companies are thinking of relocating elsewhere or that so many MPs in this House seem to want to put the blame on Brexit?

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...

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

David Davies: ...that, and I believe they have gone about it in a perfectly reasonable fashion. The real experts at the port of Holyhead told us very clearly that they are perfectly well prepared for a no-deal Brexit. They made it clear that it would cause some inconvenience and a bit of extra work, but they know what paperwork is required. They told our cross-party delegation that they want a message to...

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

David Davies: The right hon. Lady might recall that in November, the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Committee warned that Brexit could actually cause a huge amount of cheap food imports to flood into the UK. Which particular scare story does she side with: the one that says there will be cheap food imports or the one that says that we are going to run out of fruit and veg?

European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018 (29 Jan 2019)

David Davies: I visited the port of Holyhead with at least one of the right hon. Gentleman’s colleagues on Monday. They said that it was time that MPs dampened down the hysteria about no-deal Brexit, and that they were quite prepared for it. That is what the officials in the port of Holyhead said to us yesterday.

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Deficit Reduction (29 Jan 2019)

David Davies: ...quickly if companies such as Starbucks and Amazon paid a fair share of tax? Is that a point that he might be willing to make to their bosses next time they get on the phone to him to complain about Brexit?

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...

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?

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...
