Welsh Affairs (23 Apr 1959)

Mr David Llewellyn: ...should not go out from the House today the false impression that Wales is a land of despair, for she is a land of expansion and opportunity. From Llanwern to Trawsfynydd, from Milford Haven to Tryweryn, she is a land of exciting new projects, and though we must never he blind to unemployment, wherever it exists, it would be a mistaken kindness to give a false impression of Wales to...

Welsh Affairs (16 Dec 1957)

Mr David Llewellyn: ...not change a hair of his head. I would hate him to impoverish public life by leaving it altogether. After all, if he did, who else could take the place of the Merionethshire County Council at the Tryweryn talks? Besides, he is our most distinguished romantic. No Ministerial bridegrooms have ever had quite such a best man. For Lord Kilmuir he tried to do what Tennyson succeeded in doing...

Debate on the Address (5 Nov 1957)

Mr David Llewellyn: ...important harbour. These are very exciting days for Wales on many fronts. We have the development of nuclear power stations in the north.

The Labour Government, when they were in power, did not refer the scheme of the Towey Valley to the Council for Wales and Monmouthshire. They did not refer the threat to the...

Welsh Affairs (11 Feb 1957)

Mr David Llewellyn: I had some difficulty in hearing the hon. Member for Caernarvon, but I think the point is this, that the right hon. Member for Llanelly wanted the Tryweryn scheme referred now to the Advisory Council. That was the sense in which I think he was generally understood on both sides of the House. But if the Government of the day, whatever their political complexion may be, whenever they are faced...

Welsh Affairs (11 Feb 1957)

Mr David Llewellyn: ...? In the end every decision which the Government do not want to take about Wales will go to the Council for Wales and Monmouthshire. There is also this point to remember: why refer the matter of Tryweryn to a non-elected body in Wales when we could refer it equally well to the Welsh Parliamentary Party? It is proper that hon. Members of this House should consider who is to speak for Wales...
