MP Makes Maiden Speech - At Last

Montgomeryshire's new Conservative MP has delivered his maiden speech in Parliament - weeks later than expected.

Glyn Davies’ opening speech came weeks later than expected after he spent three days in hospital.

The MP who ousted Lib Dem Lembit Opik in the May general election, was left feeling extremely upset after missing the Budget and Prime Minister’s Questions for his maiden speech last month.

But he was back on form this week and also took part in a debate on the role of backbench MPs and protecting the power and authority associated with the House of Commons throughout history.

Mr Davies said: “My immediate predecessor was Lembit Öpik, and I want to pay tribute to him. He was a man of great talent in many, many areas of activity.

“I must admit that in some areas of activity he achieved a level of expertise that I am sure I will never be able to match.

He served his constituents very well, and I wish him well in his new chosen careers.”

He pointed out that he was not the first Davies to represent Montgomeryshire. Two previous MPs were Lord Davies of Llandinam and Clement Davies, a celebrated leader of the Liberal Party.
