Scottish Parliament: Motion of No Confidence ( 1 May 2024)

Jackie Baillie: ...current period of chaotic government is exceptional, whether at Westminster or at Holyrood. We have had a ringside seat, observing the trauma experienced by the current UK Government. First, it was Boris Johnson, but partygate was his undoing. Then we had Liz Truss for all of 50 days, which resulted in interest rates rising and mortgages spiralling out of control. Now we have Rishi Sunak...

Scotland: Youth Mobility: European Commission Scheme ( 1 May 2024)

Kevin Foster: ...; and the fact that people cannot take dependants with them given their temporary status. Will the Minister assure me that we will maintain the position that we had under the former Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, that we will do this where it is in the UK’s economic interest and where we know that the main drivers of issues such as immigration abuse do not exist? That is why we have the...

Group 6: Recall of Members of the Senedd (Amendments 40, 42) (30 Apr 2024)

Jane Dodds: .... Just to finish on a very personal note, several politicians have gained and lost from a system of recall. We’ll start with one who’s not in this Siambr: we must remember that Prime Minister Boris Johnson resigned at the threat of a recall petition after he was found to have deliberately misled Parliament. And I myself was elected for a very short period of time on the back of a...

Social Cohesion and Democratic Resilience: Khan Review — [Sir Mark Hendrick in the Chair] (30 Apr 2024)

Jonathan Gullis: ...have been perfect, and we have all seen and needed to call out extremism in all its forms. However, I kindly remind the hon. Member for Bradford West that calling people such as Donald Trump or Boris Johnson extremists is completely wrong and drives the feeling that they need to be marginalised even further. They are mainstream, centre-right politicians who have a view and who were...

Transport System: Failings - Motion to Take Note (25 Apr 2024)

Lord Liddle: ...for commercial services altogether. As a result, bus travel outside London has collapsed. The annual number of journeys since 2009 has gone down from 2.4 billion to 1.6 billion—a third lost. Boris Johnson realised, to be fair to him, that this was a big problem. His Bus Back Better White Paper was full of typically bold promise and ambition, but, as with so much else, delivery was...

Scottish Parliament: First Minister’s Question Time: Bute House Agreement (25 Apr 2024)

Humza Yousaf: What an astonishing set of accusations to come from a Conservative. It is astonishing for a Conservative to even utter the word “chaos”. His is the party of Boris Johnson, the party of Liz Truss, the party of a Prime Minister who was outlasted by a lettuce, the party of Kwasi Kwarteng, the party of the disastrous mini-budget and the party of Brexit—yet he uttered the word “chaos”....

Cabinet Office: Ministerial Code (25 Apr 2024)

Christian Wakeford: On 19 April, the Advisory Committee on Business Appointments wrote to the Deputy Prime Minister to report a breach of the rules by the former Prime Minister Boris Johnson in relation to a visit to Venezuela to meet President Maduro on behalf of the hedge fund Merlyn Advisors. Was the Cabinet Office aware of the visit in advance, and did the Deputy Prime Minister—the Secretary of State—or...

Cabinet Office: Topical Questions (25 Apr 2024)

Rupa Huq: With two former Conservative Prime Ministers having recently contravened the ministerial code—twice, in the case of Boris Johnson—and the Radcliffe rules, in the case of his successor, the right hon. Member for South West Norfolk (Elizabeth Truss), is it now Tory party policy to routinely ignore the rules? If not, what sanctions will they face?

Prime Minister: Engagements (24 Apr 2024)

Angela Rayner: ...with interest that the right hon. Gentleman has been urging his neighbour in No. 10 to call an election, because he is worried they might get wiped out. Has he finally realised that when he stabbed Boris Johnson in the back to get his mate into No. 10, he was ditching their biggest election winner for a pint-sized loser?

Football Governance Bill (23 Apr 2024)

Tracey Crouch: ...Bill. It is always important to remember that the Premier League asked the Government to intervene when six clubs sought to join the European super league. The pleas led to the then Prime Minister Boris Johnson promising a “legislative bomb”. That came on the back of high-profile financial problems in the football pyramid, including the demise of Bury, which my hon. Friend the Member...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Commons Reasons: Motion A1 (as an amendment to Motion A) (22 Apr 2024)

Lord Browne of Ladyton: help people evacuate left before those who needed to be evacuated could be. In a Statement repeated in your Lordships’ House and set out in full in Hansard on 7 September, the Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, told your Lordships that the Taliban must ensure safe passage and that the Government would keep ongoing evacuation plans under review in respect of such people. He said this:...

Covid-19: Response and Excess Deaths (18 Apr 2024)

Andrew Bridgen: ...the entire country for all vaccines administered. So much for “safe”. How about effective? On 25 October 2021, the then Prime Minister—the right hon. Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip, Boris Johnson—even admitted that the vaccine “doesn’t protect you against catching the disease and it doesn’t protect you against passing it on.” Looking at the levels of the virus found...

NHS: Long-term Sustainability - Motion to Take Note (18 Apr 2024)

Baroness Cavendish of Little Venice: issue that is dear to many voters in this country, which is the question of their primary asset: would they be prepared, and should they be made, to sell their home to pay for care? I note that Boris Johnson changed his language on this over time. He discovered—as everybody who looks at the issue does—that you cannot get a sustainable funding system while making no claim whatever on...

Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (Continued): Amendment 16 (17 Apr 2024)

Baroness Bennett of Manor Castle: ...that the Bill is currently providing. It is worth looking over the history of this a little bit. I think it was two Prime Ministers back—it is rather hard to keep track, but I am referring to Boris Johnson. Under Boris Johnson, it seemed that there was a real desire to pick fights with the Scottish Parliament and the Welsh Senedd in particular. Since then, we have seen some improvement;...

Tobacco and Vapes Bill (16 Apr 2024)

Wes Streeting: ...bring it forward. [Interruption.] Yes, even this stopped clock is right twice a day for the Trussites in the corner. The right hon. Lady is in fine company when it comes to former Prime Ministers. Boris Johnson has said that this proposal is “absolutely nuts…It’s just mad”. Well, now he knows how the rest of us felt when he was Prime Minister. The right hon. and learned Member for...

Leasehold and Freehold Reform Bill - Second Reading (27 Mar 2024)

Baroness Finn: ...its further stages. I hope that my noble friend the Minister can confirm that they will be included, so that we can finally get rid of the leasehold system. Thirdly, my right honourable friend Boris Johnson secured a substantial majority just five years ago on a manifesto which included the promise to implement a “ban on the sale of new leasehold homes”. The Government have sought to...

Christians: Persecution - Question for Short Debate (25 Mar 2024)

Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon: ...the International Religious Freedom or Belief Alliance. Indeed, the FoRB role predated the Truro review. I had the honour to lead on it, as the first FoRB envoy, under the then Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson and then Prime Minister Theresa May. The Government are fully supportive of Fiona Bruce’s Private Member’s Bill. She has had that assurance from me several times privately, as...

Investigatory Powers (Amendment)Bill [Lords]: New Clause 1 - Report on the Prime Minister’s engagement with the Intelligence and Security Committee (25 Mar 2024)

Kevan Jones: ...Minister to designate “up to five” Secretaries of State who can approve the warrants in the event that he or she is unable to be available. As has been raised, the obvious example was when Boris Johnson was incapacitated through covid. When we think about the issue, this measure makes sense. The ISC recognised other unique situations when a Prime Minister may not be available, for...
