Scottish Parliament: Public Service Investment (13 Jun 2024)

Michelle Thomson: ..., seven Chancellors of the Exchequer and 12 plans for growth. At the same time, their policies have caused harm to society and the economy—not least via Brexit. The chaos that was created by the Boris Johnson and Liz Truss premierships displayed a remarkable degree of incompetence, and Scotland continues to pay the price. Frankly, the Tories deserve to be dispatched to the dustbin of...

1. Questions to the First Minister: The UK General Election (11 Jun 2024)

Vaughan Gething: ...economy across the UK has flatlined, and other economies who've had the same international challenges have not had the same results. We are paying the price for Conservative economic mismanagement. Boris Johnson, Liz Truss, Rishi Sunak—the villains of the piece for the position that we now face and it's why it's so important to turn a page. And I will just deal with the point about...

1. Questions to the First Minister: Questions Without Notice from the Party Leaders ( 4 Jun 2024)

Vaughan Gething: ...I have made on test and trace. Look at the judgements that I have made on PPE during the pandemic, with no corrupt VIP lane in Wales on my watch. Look at the judgments he has made: defending Boris Johnson to the hilt, backing Liz Truss to the hilt. When she made her speech to the Conservative conference, his response was, 'That's a cracking speech'. Ask mortgage holders what they think of...

Scottish Parliament: Europe Day 2024 (23 May 2024)

Clare Adamson: ..., but it has turned into a bit of an irony fest—with quotes from Winston Churchill on his attitude towards Europe as part of the initial process, but a defence of the insular Conservative Boris Johnson, who dragged us out of European membership on what was basically a pack of misinformation. So many people were told that we would lose European membership if we voted for independence, but...

NHS (23 May 2024)

Chris Bryant: Dame Rosie, in the words of “South Pacific”, if we ain’t got dames, where would we be? In November 2021, Boris Johnson and the right hon. Member for Bromsgrove (Sir Sajid Javid) appointed me to co-chair a programme board to create a national strategy on acquired brain injury. This issue matters in every single one of our constituencies, and I am afraid we are still failing. Despite the...

Scottish Parliament: First Minister’s Question Time: Michael Matheson (Complaint) (23 May 2024)

Anas Sarwar: ...about the wider Government, not just one individual. Let us look at what is happening here. Every single day, the two Governments are getting more and more alike. Let us not forget how Boris Johnson was judged when he thought that he could stand against the processes of the United Kingdom Parliament when it came to individual members of the Conservative Party. Let us not forget...

2. Questions to the Counsel General: Engaging the Public in Elections (21 May 2024)

Mick Antoniw: ...were turned away and came back; and others, I suspect, who didn't bother going out to vote at all on the presumption that they didn't have the necessary ID. I do remember the former Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, of course said, of ID cards, that he would tear it up and he would eat it with his cornflakes. Well, he must have done that, because he turned up to vote, didn't have an ID card,...

Low Traffic Neighbourhoods — [Carolyn Harris in the Chair] (20 May 2024)

Simon Lightwood: “transformational”, and warned: “if you are going to oppose these schemes, you must tell us what your alternative is”. Who was that? It was the disgraced former Prime Minister Boris Johnson. In November 2022, another distinguished colleague of ours in this House said that decisions on low-traffic neighbourhoods are “entirely a matter for local authorities…to...

Israel and Gaza (20 May 2024)

David Lammy: ..., and did not answer. I repeat that question to him today. The whole House will be interested in his response. Last November in this House, the Deputy Foreign Secretary appeared to row back on Boris Johnson’s shameful abandonment of the International Criminal Court when he said: “It is not for Ministers to seek to state where the ICC has jurisdiction”.—[Official Report, 14...

Mineworkers’ Pension Scheme (16 May 2024)

Grahame Morris: ...and I think there was unanimity on the unfairness and injustice of the surplus-sharing arrangement. When the hon. Gentleman was deputy chairman of the Conservative party, the former Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, visited the coalfield in Mansfield and gave certain undertakings and assurances to reform the surplus-sharing arrangement so that the miners would get their money back. As a...

Backbench Business: Inequalities in Dementia Services — [Christina Rees in the Chair] (16 May 2024)

Maria Caulfield: ...and we have a clear mission to make our NHS and social care system much more responsive to people’s needs. The hon. Member for Halifax pointed out the important work of the former Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, in setting up the Dame Barbara Windsor dementia mission. The previous Prime Minister, David Cameron, instigated a lot of research in this space as well. I say this with my...

Business of the House (16 May 2024)

Andrew Rosindell: ...I am sure the Leader of the House is aware, today—the 16 May—is Middlesex Day. Will she join me in commending the Prime Minister for continuing the tradition, started by former Prime Minister Boris Johnson, of proudly flying the Middlesex flag from No. 10 Downing Street to recognise the historic county of which London is a part? Will she congratulate Middlesex Heritage, the...

Biodiversity Loss — [Christina Rees in the Chair] (15 May 2024)

Toby Perkins: ...should be a leader on the global stage when it comes to the environment and nature. I have to say that under the current Prime Minister, there has been far less of a commitment than there was under Boris Johnson. Since Montreal, the Government have shown very little interest in making good on that momentum. They have failed to deliver their targets domestically or on the international...

Written Answers — Ministry of Defence: Defence: Expenditure (14 May 2024)

the Marquess of Lothian: ...of an increase in defence spending to a new baseline of 2.5 per cent GDP by 2030 differs from the pledge to increase defence spending to 2.5 per cent by 2030 given by the former Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, at the NATO summit in Madrid in June 2022; and whether a spending review will be required.

Miners and Mining Communities ( 9 May 2024)

Keir Mather: ...have not gotten a fair share of its proceeds. During the 2019 general election—since when, I should note, the Conservative party has received no democratic mandate from the electorate—Boris Johnson said categorically that the Tories would make sure that no “miner signed up to the Mineworkers’ Pension Scheme is out of pocket…we will make sure all their cash is fully protected and...

Skills: Importance for the UK Economy and Quality of Life - Motion to Take Note ( 9 May 2024)

Lord Lilley: ...or half-hearted. Since Tony Blair opened our borders to the importing of skills from abroad—this is not a party-political point, because he was, sadly, followed by the coalition Government and Boris Johnson—spending on training of people at work has declined, and, predictably, the time people at work spend on training has declined. One of the things that brought home to me how deeply...

Defence ( 7 May 2024)

John Healey: ...but the Prime Minister’s announcement last month that the Conservatives will raise defence spending to 2.5% of GDP by 2030 is of course the same level that this country spent with Labour in 2010. Boris Johnson made the same promise two years earlier, and the Conservatives have not delivered it in any of the five Budgets or autumn statements since. None hit 2.5%, none reversed the real...

Scottish Parliament: First Minister’s Question Time: Scottish National Party Leadership ( 2 May 2024)

Humza Yousaf: ...What about the Conservatives? They are the party of Windrush, the party of bankers’ bonuses, the party of austerity, the party of Brexit, the party of the two-child limit, the party of Boris Johnson, the party of Liz Truss and the party of the cost of living crisis. With such an abysmal record, no wonder the leader of the nasty party wants to talk about personalities, not policies.

Business and Trade: Topical Questions ( 2 May 2024)

Richard Thomson: In 2017, Boris Johnson claimed the UK was “first in line” for a post-Brexit trade deal with the United States. While negotiations opened in May 2020, no progress has been made since October of that year. When does the Secretary of State expect to be able to deliver this alleged Brexit benefit, and what does she think will arrive first—a trade deal with the US or pints of champagne to...

8. Plaid Cymru Debate: Cap on political donations ( 1 May 2024)

Lee Waters: ...absolutely spot on about that. And the Tories, if I may say, would have more credibility if they had stood up when the last two Home Secretaries, the Chancellor, and even the former Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, were not just accused of breaking the ministerial code but were judged to have actually broken the ministerial code. But what did Rishi Sunak and the Welsh Conservatives have to...
