Results 21–40 of 48 for brexit speaker:David Davies

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

David Davies: ...by the Governments of other nations who may, during complex negotiations, have aims that differ very much from our own. What the Government have been doing is not defending the information about Brexit, because we already know what the problem is. I am an ardent Brexiteer. I already knew that the problem would be over the backstop. None of the information that has come out since...

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?

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.

Other Proceedings: Welsh Affairs (19 Mar 2018)

David Davies: The hon. Gentleman will be aware that we were paying about £18 billion a year to be a member of the European Union. Even if the £39 billion Brexit divorce bill figure is correct—I am prepared to accept that it is—it represents about two years’ membership of the European Union. If that is the price that we have to pay for a good deal, and if other Members support it, I am willing to...

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...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Referendum on Independence (7 Mar 2018)

David Davies: ...union which they share with the rest of the United Kingdom, will my right hon. Friend show it more respect than they are currently showing to the 17.6 million people across the UK who voted for Brexit?

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?

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?

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...

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?

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?

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...

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?

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...

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...

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?

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...

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?

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...
