Owen Smith

Wayne David, Labour MP for Caerphilly, has given his full support to Owen Smith, the MP for Pontypridd, in his bid for the Labour leadership.

On Sunday Wayne David attended Owen Smith’s campaign launch in his Pontypridd constituency and has said that he will give 100% support to Owen’s campaign. 

Wayne David said, "Make no mistake about it, the Labour Party is in crisis.  The Labour Party needs a strong, dynamic leader who will look to the future.  Labour also needs a leader who will unite the Party behind a clear vision and a firm set of policies.  I believe that Owen Smith is the person who can do that.

"I have known Owen for many years and I know that he has integrity, ability, energy and determination. Labour needs those qualities now more than ever before".

Labour’s leadership campaign will be conducted over the summer with the result being announced on 24 September.

Caerphilly Mountain

Wayne David, Labour MP for Caerphilly, has responded to reports that Caerphilly County Borough Council is likely to withdraw its draft Local Development Plan (LDP).

Wayne David said, “I am pleased that Caerphilly County Borough Council is listening to public opinion and the views of the local AM and MP and is set to withdraw its Local Development Plan. This shows that in a democracy it is worth putting forward well-thought out points of view and campaigning hard on issues of local importance.

 “It is now vital that there be a regional approach to planning that covers the whole of South East Wales and not just Caerphilly”.

EU referendum result

In response to the EU referendum result, Wayne David, Labour MP for Caerphilly, has issued the following statement:

“I am very disappointed with last night’s referendum result.  The important thing, however, is now to look to the future and to recognise that Britain, and especially Wales, must not look inward but forge new relationships with Europe and the wider world.  Trade is vital to our economic well-being and we must do our utmost to ensure that we are able to export easily to as many markets as possible.

 “We must also reject intolerance and prejudice.  In the modern world, it is vital that we work with others across national borders and recognise that there is more which unites human beings than divides them”.
