Prime Minister: Engagements (20 Jul 2022)

Boris Johnson: Polonius—that’s who the right hon. Gentleman is; he needs more matter with less art. The only thing we need to know is that if there were to be a general election, the Liberal Democrats would rightly get thrashed, because that would be the moment when the public looked with horror at what the Liberal Democrats’ policies really are and all those rural voters would discover the massive...

Prime Minister: Engagements (20 Jul 2022)

Boris Johnson: London once had a Mayor who cut crime by 25%, cut the murder rate by 30% and built twice as many affordable homes as the current incumbent. What London needs is another Conservative Mayor.

Prime Minister: Engagements (20 Jul 2022)

Boris Johnson: I can confirm that we are committed to funding two new green freeports in Scotland to the tune of £52 million. That would not be possible, of course, if the SNP got its way and we returned to the EU.

Prime Minister: Engagements (20 Jul 2022)

Prime Minister: Engagements (20 Jul 2022)

Boris Johnson: I thank my right hon. Friend very much for her suggestions. The key thing is for people to behave responsibly with the use of these things. It is clearly insane to take a disposable barbecue on to dry grass.

Prime Minister: Engagements (20 Jul 2022)

Boris Johnson: Actually, we increased the living wage across the whole of the UK by £1,000, we made sure that people on universal credit got their tax bills cut by £1,000, and over the last couple of weeks we have cut national insurance contributions by an average of £330. It was because of the Union that we were able to support families up and down the country, in Scotland, with the furlough and other...

Prime Minister: Engagements (20 Jul 2022)

Boris Johnson: That was brilliantly put; I could not have put it better myself.

Prime Minister: Engagements (20 Jul 2022)

Boris Johnson: Actually, I think more people have got compensation. I renew my apologies to the Windrush generation for what they have suffered, but we have greatly increased the compensation available. We have paid out, I think, more than £51 million. We are working with voluntary groups to ensure that people get what they are entitled to. I may say that Labour has never apologised for its own part in the...

Prime Minister: Engagements (20 Jul 2022)

Boris Johnson: Yes, and I thank my hon. Friend for everything she has done to champion UK steel, a vital national industry.

Prime Minister: Engagements (20 Jul 2022)

Prime Minister: Engagements (20 Jul 2022)

Prime Minister: Engagements (20 Jul 2022)

Prime Minister: Engagements (20 Jul 2022)

Boris Johnson: I thank my old friend for everything he did to campaign on that issue for so long. I am glad that this Government were indeed able to fulfil their promise not just to veterans, but to their families as well. I renew my thanks to the security services, who do so much to keep us safe, and to all those who put on the Queen’s uniform.

Prime Minister: Engagements (20 Jul 2022)

Boris Johnson: The UK had the fastest growth in the G7 last year and we will return to the top of the table soon because we came out of covid fastest. We had 0.5% growth in May. Do not forget that the people of Scotland, like the people of the whole of the UK, are supported by the massive fiscal firepower of the UK Treasury, and that is a great advantage.

Prime Minister: Engagements (20 Jul 2022)

Boris Johnson: My hon. Friend is a fantastic champion for Cornwall and we will continue our programme to support the greater south-west, whether through the A303 or broadband. Cornwall has a bright future with her as a representative.

Prime Minister: Engagements (20 Jul 2022)

Boris Johnson: This is the country that secured furlough and that delivered the vaccine across the whole of the UK, while the SNP gets on with overtaxing to the tune of £900 million—that is how much they are overtaxing in Scotland. And we had a referendum in 2014.

Prime Minister: Engagements (20 Jul 2022)

Boris Johnson: I will make sure that my hon. Friend gets a meeting as soon as possible with the relevant Minister, but it is very important that we encourage our great fish and chip shops in Grimsby, Cleethorpes and elsewhere to make sure they are not just using Russian fish for their fish and chips.

Prime Minister: Engagements (20 Jul 2022)

Boris Johnson: I am sure that everybody who has served this Government loyally and well deserves recognition of some kind, but as for the honours list, I am afraid the hon. Gentleman will have to contain his excitement.

Prime Minister: Engagements (20 Jul 2022)

Boris Johnson: My hon. Friend is a brilliant champion for Essex and her hospital. I know the case is under review by the Department, but never forget it is only possible because of the money this Government are investing.
