Written Answers — Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office: Tawfik Ghanem (23 Mai 2024)

Wayne David: To ask the Deputy Foreign Secretary, whether he has had discussions with his counterpart in Egypt on the detention of Tawfik Ghanem.

Countering Iran’s Hostile Activities — [Gordon Henderson in the Chair] ( 8 Mai 2024)

Wayne David: I do not want to embarrass the Minister unduly, but it is commonly said that the Home Office is in favour of proscription, while the Foreign Office is not, so there are two conflicting opinions. Would the Minister care to comment on that? If indeed there is a conflict of opinions, how will that be resolved?

Countering Iran’s Hostile Activities — [Gordon Henderson in the Chair] ( 8 Mai 2024)

Wayne David: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairpersonship, Mr Henderson. I congratulate my right hon. Friend the Member for Barking (Dame Margaret Hodge) on securing the debate, which she introduced in a customarily eloquent and forceful manner. I also thank the other hon. Members who have contributed: the right hon. Member for Chingford and Woodford Green (Sir Iain Duncan Smith), my hon. Friend...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Strategic Litigation Against Public Participation Bill: Clause 2 - Meaning of “SLAPP” claim ( 8 Mai 2024)

Wayne David: I thank hon. Members for their contributions. The hon. Member for Windsor is absolutely correct that what we have experienced today and previously highlights the fact that this is a good process. There should be more private Members’ Bills and more time allocated to them in the procedures of this House. That is an important point to make. I am extremely grateful for the knowledgeable...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Strategic Litigation Against Public Participation Bill: Clause 2 - Meaning of “SLAPP” claim ( 8 Mai 2024)

Wayne David: I beg to move amendment 1, in clause 2, page 2, line 6, at end insert— “(aa) the claim relates to an expression or potential expression made or to be made by the defendant which discloses or would disclose information relating to a matter of public interest;”. This amendment and amendments 3, 4, 8 and 9 re-order themes in the subsection so that the public interest is referred to before...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Strategic Litigation Against Public Participation Bill: Clause 2 - Meaning of “SLAPP” claim ( 8 Mai 2024)

Wayne David: I will turn shortly to amendment 1 and the other amendments in my name, but I will first address the function of clause 2, which creates a statutory definition of what constitutes a SLAPP claim, so that courts can effectively identify such misuses of our justice system. It will mean that a case will be considered a SLAPP if each limb of a three-part test is met: a defendant has had their...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Strategic Litigation Against Public Participation Bill: Clause 2 - Meaning of “SLAPP” claim ( 8 Mai 2024)

Wayne David: I will seek clarification, as I am a layperson. My understanding is that the judge’s decision is definitive and will achieve the desired effect. The introduction of reasonableness will give the court a clear ability to draw conclusions about a claimant’s intention from all the objective evidence before it. That evidence will be from both the claimant and the defendant, and its extent will...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Strategic Litigation Against Public Participation Bill: Clause 2 - Meaning of “SLAPP” claim ( 8 Mai 2024)

Wayne David: The right hon. Gentleman makes an extremely important point that gets to the heart of the Bill. Such cases are extremely stressful and cause all manner of feelings, which are clearly indicated here, and often enormous expense. One of the things that is recognised in this Bill is that in many cases that is quite deliberate. SLAPP cases are often designed to cause a maximum amount of distress,...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Strategic Litigation Against Public Participation Bill: Clause 1 - Requirement to make rules of court ( 8 Mai 2024)

Wayne David: What can I say? We have had an excellent discussion this morning. It has been very good indeed and has in many ways got to the core of the issue. I want to genuinely thank the right hon. Member for Haltemprice and Howden for prompting this excellent debate through his new clause. As I said, I brought forward this Bill to tackle SLAPPs in all their forms and provide protection for free speech...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Strategic Litigation Against Public Participation Bill: Clause 1 - Requirement to make rules of court ( 8 Mai 2024)

Wayne David: I am not familiar with Magna Carta, but I suspect our common law has moved on somewhat since then. The uncertainty about the scope and effect of the new clause also raises the somewhat unfortunate spectre of new and unexpected avenues for litigation, when these measures are intended to do the exact opposite. I am clear that the drafting of the Bill makes its purpose transparent. It is a...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Strategic Litigation Against Public Participation Bill: Clause 1 - Requirement to make rules of court ( 8 Mai 2024)

Wayne David: I am a very reasonable person—[Hon. Members: “Hear, hear.”] I am glad that all Members agree.

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Strategic Litigation Against Public Participation Bill: Clause 1 - Requirement to make rules of court ( 8 Mai 2024)

Wayne David: This is a crucial test, which will be addressed, I am certain, in clauses that we have yet to discuss. There is much to be said for providing a clarification, and that is one of the central things that we will come on to in a few moments’ time.

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Strategic Litigation Against Public Participation Bill: Clause 1 - Requirement to make rules of court ( 8 Mai 2024)

Wayne David: In fairness, the Bill’s intention is clearly expressed in the clauses that we have before us. I accept that the discussion will be ongoing; nobody is saying that it is the end of the matter, but as things stand, I think it is fair to say that there has been a great deal of discussion and a great deal of investigation of different options, and that this is the best consensual position that...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Strategic Litigation Against Public Participation Bill: Clause 1 - Requirement to make rules of court ( 8 Mai 2024)

Wayne David: The right hon. Gentleman might not have heard judges refer explicitly to explanatory notes, but I know it to be a fact that judges quite regularly provide interpretations and receive information derived from them, so I suggest to him that explanatory notes are very, very important. The two—the legislation itself and the Government’s official explanatory notes—should go in tandem. I am...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Strategic Litigation Against Public Participation Bill: Clause 1 - Requirement to make rules of court ( 8 Mai 2024)

Wayne David: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Ms Elliott. I tabled this private Member’s Bill to tackle SLAPPs—strategic litigation, or lawsuits, against public participation—in all their forms, so that any abuse of litigation to attack free speech in the public interest, regardless of subject matter, can be addressed through the courts. The Bill has had a long gestation. On Second...

Wales: Cost of Living ( 8 Mai 2024)

Wayne David: What recent discussions he has had with Cabinet colleagues on the cost of living in Wales

Wales: Cost of Living ( 8 Mai 2024)

Wayne David: Is the Secretary of State aware of a study by Citizens Advice Cymru indicating that more than half a million people in Wales are struggling to make ends meet? If he is aware, what is he doing about it?

Petition - Recommendations of the Infected Blood Inquiry ( 7 Mai 2024)

Wayne David: I rise to present a petition that calls for the immediate implementation of the final recommendations of Sir Brian Langstaff’s report. It is sent by my constituents in Caerphilly, and in particular Lee Stay and Kirk Ellis, two brave victims of contaminated blood. The petition states: The petition of residents of the constituency of Caerphilly, Declares that people who received infected...
