Motion text

That this House notes the birth of David Lloyd George on 17 January 1863; recognises his achievements during 55 years as the Member for Caernarfon Boroughs including the introduction of state old age pensions, a national insurance scheme for sickness and unemployment benefit, curtailing the power of the House of Lords, leading the nation to victory in the First World War, giving votes to women, introducing council houses and disestablishing the Churchin Wales; and believes that while his life was not without controversy he should be admired for being the first Prime Minister from humble origins and deserves his place as the greatest Welsh and one of the greatest British statesmen of all time.
