National Security Bill: After Clause 14 - Foreign interference in elections: duties on political parties (26 Jun 2023)

Kevan Jones: ...on the Committee the longest—six years now—and what has happened over the past three years has been an attack on the Committee’s independence and our ability to scrutinise. It started with Boris Johnson’s attempt to rig the Committee by giving the Conservative party a majority on it and the chairmanship of it. That failed. We also had the delay of the Russia report for no apparent...

Lung Cancer Screening (26 Jun 2023)

Wes Streeting: ...Health Secretary to accept he has failed, step aside and call in the Prime Minister to finally meet junior doctors? If the Prime Minister has time to negotiate gongs for Conservative cronies with Boris Johnson, he has time to meet junior doctors. Today we learnt that the National Cancer Research Institute announced it will be closing after 22 years, due to “uncertainty in the wider...

Road User Charging Schemes — [Graham Stringer in the Chair] (26 Jun 2023)

Gareth Bacon: ...of London and Westminster (Nickie Aiken) was in favour of it while she was leader of Westminster City Council and why it was supported when it was initially consulted on under the mayoralty of Boris Johnson by the GLA Conservative group. Outer London is completely different. It does not suffer from the same bad air or have the public transport alternatives. That may help the hon. Member...

Business of the House (22 Jun 2023)

Wera Hobhouse: Supporting the Privileges Committee report on Boris Johnson earlier this week, the Leader of the House said “the integrity of our institutions matter.”—[Official Report, 19 June 2023; Vol. 734, c. 585.] Mr Johnson’s actions were not right, and they were not honourable. The Leader of the House is also Lord President of the Privy Council, so can we have a statement from her, in that...

Cabinet Office: Honours Nominations (22 Jun 2023)

Kerry McCarthy: The Prime Minister insists that he was only following convention when he waved through Boris Johnson’s honours list. It should be obvious to anyone that this former dishonourable Member—a man who will not even be allowed back on to the estate without an escort—should not be doling out honours. Would a stronger, more principled Prime Minister not have recognised that any convention that...

Cabinet Office: Resignation Honours Lists: Impact (22 Jun 2023)

Marion Fellows: I can now say this without being told off, as was the case a year ago this month: the disgraced, dishonest and serial-lying Boris Johnson should categorically not be given any resignation honours list—period. What steps is the Minister taking to rescind this democratic outrage? If he is not taking any, does he agree with Parliament’s judgment on Monday, given that he chose to abstain on...

Cabinet Office: Topical Questions (22 Jun 2023)

Patrick Grady: ...the creation of the Office of the Prime Minister. It was going to be very exciting—like something out of “The West Wing”, which, of course, was a work of fiction, much like a lot of Boris Johnson’s premiership. In the words of a character from “The West Wing”, is the Office of the Prime Minister still “a thing”?

Scottish Parliament: Motion of No Confidence (22 Jun 2023)

Humza Yousaf: ...for our group, and I will take no lectures on leadership from Douglas Ross—the leader of the Scottish Conservatives who could not muster his own Scottish Tory MPs this week to vote to sanction Boris Johnson—[ Interruption .] Douglas Ross says that they did, but the soon to be Lord Jack did not. Let us be honest—the leader of the Scottish Conservatives is not Douglas Ross but the...

Animal Welfare (Kept Animals) (21 Jun 2023)

Andrea Jenkyns: ...hugely disappointed to be here having this debate today, especially given that the Conservative party has made huge in-roads on improving animal welfare since 2010. In 2019, under the leadership of Boris Johnson—incidentally, he and his wife passionately care about our animal friends—he ensured that all Conservatives stood on a manifesto to bring forward the measures in this Bill. I...

Point of Order (21 Jun 2023)

Karl Turner: On a point of order, Mr Speaker, on 24 May, at Prime Minister’s questions, I asked the Prime Minister why he was forcing the British public to pay the legal bill for Boris Johnson for the Privileges Committee, which is a parliamentary Committee of this House. In his reply, the Prime Minister said there was a convention that former Ministers or Ministers would have the legal bill covered in...

Prime Minister: Engagements (21 Jun 2023)

Stephen Flynn: ...March 2023; Vol. 730, c. 330.] In May, he said that “economic optimism is increasing.” Given the dire economic reality of today, is it not now clear that he has taken his honesty lessons from Boris Johnson?

9. Legislative Consent Motion on the Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill (20 Jun 2023)

Peredur Owen Griffiths: ...donations from the wife of a former Russian deputy finance Minister and a company owned by a Russian oil tycoon. We should also consider the Tory courting of oligarchs such as Evgeny Lebedev. Boris Johnson, in all his wisdom, nominated him for the House of Lords despite him deriving his wealth from his father, Alexander, who was recently sanctioned by Ukraine for his association with the...

Heritage Sites: Sustainability (20 Jun 2023)

Jonathan Gullis: ...local charities and organisations would maybe never otherwise be able to access Ministers at first hand; having them on their doorstep sent a real signal of intent and seriousness. I congratulate Boris Johnson, the former Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip, on doing that. It was a big decision, and it meant a lot to the people of Stoke-on-Trent. I am delighted that Middleport pottery...

1. Questions to the First Minister: Questions Without Notice from the Party Leaders (20 Jun 2023)

Rhun ap Iorwerth: ...for devolution, just as they've shown that they hold basic principles of integrity and trust in contempt. It's incredible, isn't it, that a majority of Welsh Conservative MPs effectively sided with Boris Johnson last night by not voting on that Commons report. You'd have thought that that was the least they could have done to try to get some redemption. But back to those powers. Where...

Scottish Parliament: Innovation Strategy (20 Jun 2023)

Keith Brown: ...; the last time that I heard, five of them were in the top 200 universities in the world. The explosion of ideas during the Scottish enlightenment is an inspiration. Perhaps we will not see the Boris Johnson school of philosophy on the nature of truth or the political economy thesis of Kwasi Kwarteng, but there are important antecedents that should inform how we look forward and give us...

Scottish Parliament: Motion of No Confidence (20 Jun 2023)

...opposed the creation of this Parliament in the first place. Let us face it: it is no coincidence that they have pressed this stunt just a day after the House of Commons voted to press sanctions on Boris Johnson—sanctions that the soon-to-be Lord Jack failed to support. We know that today is meant to be a distraction from the work that the Government is undertaking and the work that Lorna...

Privilege: Conduct of Right Hon. Boris Johnson (19 Jun 2023)

Martin Docherty: ..., including the Chair, and I commend all the Clerks who helped, the report does not answer some fundamental questions that the House will need to consider in the long term. How is it possible that Boris Johnson walks out the door and earns millions within days and all we can say—I will quote from the report—is: “In view of the fact that Mr Johnson is no longer a Member, we recommend...

Hunting Trophies (Import Prohibition) Bill - Second Reading (16 Jun 2023)

Lord Rennard: ..., I shall begin my contribution with six words very rarely used by me on these Benches: I support the Government on this. There are some people, including some here, who have been busy praising Boris Johnson in the manner of Shakespeare’s Mark Antony’s funeral oration following the murder of Julius Caesar. They ignore the line “The evil that men do lives after them”, and heap...

Local Government: Reinvigorating Local Democracy - Motion to Take Note (15 Jun 2023)

Baroness Eaton: ..., and we must do better if we want strategic long-term planning and delivery of the infrastructure and services people want. The London Finance Commission, established by the then Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, and chaired by the LSE’s Tony Travers, took a deep dive into the opportunities for serious, tangible, fiscal devolution to the capital. Its conclusions remain applicable not only...

Pride Month (15 Jun 2023)

Nickie Aiken: ...this as I was—the Conservative parliamentary party was whipped to vote against it. However, there were three Conservative MPs who rebelled and defied the Whip: George Osborne, David Cameron and Boris Johnson. Whether hon. Members agree with their politics or not, that rebellion was the start of a new wave of Conservative thinking about gay rights. It was that new generation of...
