Other Proceedings: Welsh Affairs (19 Mar 2018)

Liz Saville-Roberts: ...do excellent work on the national stage and also locally. I must not fail to give a call-out to the Royal National Lifeboat Institution and the lifeboat crews of Porthdinllaen, Abersoch, Pwllheli, Criccieth, Barmouth and Aberdyfi and all their supporters. They provide an essential emergency service to leisure and commercial seafarers alike. Another essential emergency service is provided...

Backbench Business — Gangs and Serious Youth Violence: Welsh Affairs (3 Mar 2016)

Glyn Davies: ...David Lloyd George—his statue rightly stands outside the door to the Chamber—had opened a similar debate, but he had not. He was a remarkable politician. A left-wing, radical Welsh speaker from Criccieth in north Wales whom nobody had ever heard of until he came here, he effectively led the Conservative party for six years in this place. Only a Welshman could pull off a trick like...

Local and Regional Newspapers (15 Jul 2009)

Siôn Simon: ...and on his opening speech in which he set the ground for the entire debate. He covered most of the bases and managed to include not just his own local newspapers but those for Porthmadog, Pwllheli, Criccieth, Llannor, Llysfaen and Garndolbenmaen. Drawing all those in is a triumph for which he should be congratulated. He also touched on mergers, so perhaps I will set out the position. The...

(Lords Amendments Nos. 38, 39, 40) (10 Mar 2005)

Lord Richard: ..., I shall be brief. I have only two or three things to say, but I cannot help being provoked, yet again, by the noble Lord, Lord Thomas of Gresford, whose Lloyd George would not be recognised in Criccieth. There would be absolutely no chance of that. Perhaps I should not go on about David Lloyd George. It would take a long speech and would probably bore many people in this place. He was...

NHS Wales (Working Time Directive) (25 May 2004)

Hywel Williams: ...in preparation for the debate were, rightly or wrongly, unclear about future arrangements and the effect of the working time directive on GPs' out-of-hours systems. My former GP, Dr. John Webb of Criccieth, put it succinctly when he asked how GPs would be affected by the working time directive if they were contracted in to provide out-of-hours services and were otherwise self-employed....

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Business Rates (17 Jun 1996)

Mr Dafydd Wigley: ...an assurance that, in view of the inconsistencies in the definition of rural area, whereby areas such as Ruabon, Llanwern, and Margam are defined as rural, but areas such as Llanrug, Felinheli, and Criccieth are not—which must be wrong—he will look at the definition again and ensure that businesses such as bakeries and rural pharmacies are included in the provisions so that they have a...

Flooding (Wales) (21 Oct 1987)

Mr Dafydd Wigley: I associate my party with all the remarks about bereavement and I thank all those who worked so hard. My constituency contains places such as Criccieth, Pentrefelin, Llanberis, Cwmyglo and Rhostryfan which were flooded. I welcome the Secretary of State's response and his visits to Wales this week. May we clarify the details of the compensation? For example, if costs run over to 1988–89,...

Prayers: Tourism (3 Jul 1987)

Mr Dafydd Wigley: ...for the tourist trade in them. I could compete well with all hon. Members, since I represent Snowdonia, the Menai straits, the Lleyn peninsula, the villages of Abersoch, Aberdaron, Nefyn and Criccieth and also Aberglaslyn pass and Beddgelert, but I shall try to restrict myself to the issues that the Government should be facing rather than extending general invitations, which none the less...

Sheep (Radioactivity) (24 Jul 1986)

Mr Dafydd Wigley: ...the House's terms — a new order came into effect to release a further part of Anglesey, which is in my hon. Friend's constituency; part of the Conwy Valley; the coastal strip between Barmouth and Criccieth; part of Gwynedd between the A4085 and the B4418 roads; an area west of Corwen on the boundary between Gwynedd and Clwyd; and a small area north of Montgomery. That represents an...

Ambulance Services (Gwynedd) (7 Jun 1985)

Mr Dafydd Wigley: ...it is a parallel petition to one signed by thousands of people which has been sent to the Secretary of State for Wales. This petition includes signatories from the centres of Pwllheli, Porthmadog, Criccieth, Tremadog, Abererch, Penrhos, Abersoch, Llanbedrog and Pentrefelin in my constituency. My constituents pray: that your honourable House shall take the necessary steps to ensure that the...

Orders of the Day — Road Traffic (Production of Documents) Bill: Extension of Periods for Production of Certain Documents (3 May 1985)

Mr Dafydd Wigley: ...come up against the bureaucracy which is at the core of the problem. We must try to overcome that bureaucracy. The hon. Gentleman might have to go to the police station in Pwllheli, Portmadoc or Criccieth and produce his documents. He might not have those documents with him, but if he were allowed a week or two to produce them that would allow him to return home and to present them to his...

Orders of the Day — Caernarvon-Portmadoc Trunk Road (19 Oct 1982)

Mr Dafydd Wigley: ...The town of Porthmadog is a focal point through which passes not only Welsh north-south traffic but also traffic coming from the Midlands of England on holiday to the Lleyn peninsula—to Pwllheli, Criccieth, Abersoch and Nefyn. Porthmadog itself is a bubbling and busy holiday centre, and, while the main road through the town is wide, it is packed with pedestrians in summer, both during...

Orders of the Day — Economic Situation (18 Mar 1974)

Mr Dafydd Wigley: ...be among the most scenic of constituencies in these islands, including within its bounds the Eryri mountains, dominated by the Snowdon peak, and dropping to a beautiful coastline which includes Criccieth, Abersoch, Aberdaron and Nefyn. Over 85 per cent. of the population speak Welsh, and the Welsh language is the predominant spoken language in the home, the market place, and in business....

Orders of the Day — Local Government Bill (16 Nov 1971)

Mr Goronwy Roberts: ...all of us. Even with the increased rates for which this Government are responsible we trace the future on that population basis with understandable anxiety. The right hon. Gentleman will know that Criccieth and Lleyn Councils have voiced their concern about the future. On the other hand, south Caernarvonshire is a natural community. It works, lives and moves as a community. The population...

Orders of the Day — Unemployment (Caernarvon) (4 May 1971)

Mr David Gibson-Watt: ...provide the permanent employment which was promised. The right hon. Gentleman might well have referred to a planning application for a factory development of 10,000 square feet at Caernarvon Road, Criccieth.

Civil Estimates, Supplementary Estimates, 1963–64: Industry, South Caernarvonshire (4 Dec 1963)

Sir David Price: ...lies. Although there is no generally-accepted definition of "South Caernarvonshire", I take it to comprise the Lleyn rural district, the municipal Borough of Pwllheli and the urban districts of Criccieth and Portmadoc. As the hon. Member observed, the population of South Caernarvonshire, as I have just defined it, was 25,800 at the 1961 census. At the previous census it was 27,800....

Railways (29 Apr 1963)

Mr Thomas Jones: .... They want to expand, and they intend to expand this coming summer. Henceforth, Merionethshire will be served by only one single line along the Cambrian coast to take people from Aberystwyth to Criccieth, the home of my hon. Friend the Member for Carmarthen (Lady Megan Lloyd George). I charge the Railways Board with not having made the slightest effort to cater for the tourists and...

Wales and Monmouthshire (Report) (2 Aug 1962)

Miss Megan Lloyd George: ...not be inadequate but non-existent. No one objects to a process of speeding up on some of these railway lines, possibly closing halts and stations. I remember once making a journey from Llanelly to Criccieth, two vital points judged by any standards, a distance of about 140 miles. The journey took eight and three-quarter hours, and there were fifty stops. No one would defend a system of...

Nuclear Power Stations (Safety) (21 Jan 1959)

Mr Goronwy Roberts: ...two outstanding Welsh scientists who, very properly, have made a special study of these peculiar conditions in Wales, Dr. Glyn Phillips, of Cardiff University College, and Dr. Eirwen Gwynn, of Criccieth, both of whom have written ably and responsibly about these hazards. Recently, the Medical Officer of Health for the Borough of Caernarvon and the rural district of Gwyrfai—also a Dr....
