Wayne David

Member of Parliament for Caerphilly

Wayne David re-appointed Shadow Justice Minister

Houses of Parliament

Wayne David, Labour MP for Caerphilly, has been re-appointed to Labour’s frontbench Justice team in Westminster.  Mr David will continue working closely with Shadow Lord Chancellor, Charlie Falconer.

Within the Justice team, Mr David will have two new responsibilities.  They will be a) criminal justice matters, particularly relating to victims and youth justice. b) co-ordinating scrutiny and where appropriate, opposition to the Government’s devolution policies, and co-ordinating the Labour Party’s devolution plans for Wales, Scotland and the regions and cities of England.  Mr David will also be leading Labour’s opposition to so-called English Votes for English Laws (EVEL).

On his re-appointment, Mr David said, “I am pleased to be playing a full and leading role in both scrutinising and opposing Government policy, while helping to develop Labour’s policies in key areas.  Although I did not vote for Jeremy Corbyn in the Labour Leadership, it is now important that we pull together as a Labour Party to prepare for next year’s important elections and the general election in 2020”.
