Scottish Parliament: Hate Crime and Public Order (Scotland) Act 2021 (21 Mar 2024)

The First Minister: The Conservative Party is the party of go-home vans, the party of the hostile environment, the party of Windrush and the party whose leader, Boris Johnson, called Muslim women “bank robbers”.

Scrutiny of Secretaries of State in the House of Lords (20 Mar 2024)

Nigel Mills: ...for that. It leaves only the Bar of the House as the place to conduct such sessions. We even talked about the idea of Lord Cameron beaming in from the screen, like President Zelensky did or like Boris Johnson did when he was answering Prime Minister’s questions when he had covid. Not having the Foreign Secretary here, so that we could look him in the white of his eyes, would have been...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Regulation (EU) 2023/2411: Applicability Motion (19 Mar 2024)

Brian Kingston: Something that we and all unionists in the Chamber will agree on is the damage done by the Northern Ireland protocol, which was imposed on this country by Boris Johnson and his colleagues in the Conservative Party. The question for those of us on the unionist Benches is this: what are we doing about it? The stand that the DUP took delivered change. The EU said that it would not renegotiate...

3. Debate: Final report of the Independent Commission on the Constitutional Future of Wales (19 Mar 2024)

Alun Davies: ...United Kingdom Government. The Sewel convention and the way in which our Parliaments and our Governments work together have been completely eroded to virtual extinction by not just the work of Boris Johnson, but the work of successive UK Parliaments over the last few years. We need to go somewhat further. When I look at how we re-establish a democratic structure in the United Kingdom, I...

Written Answers — Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office: Boris Johnson (18 Mar 2024)

Fabian Hamilton: To ask the Minister of State, Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office, whether he had discussions with Mr Boris Johnson (a) before and (b) after his recent meeting with President Nicolás Maduro of Venezuela.

United Kingdom: Union - Motion to Take Note (14 Mar 2024)

Lord McInnes of Kilwinning: ...been divided almost equally on the desirability of an independent Scotland, however—not to sound like the BBC—despite the foretold supposed kryptonite powers of both Brexit and my former boss Boris Johnson, that parity has not changed. Most importantly, the number of people who want an independence referendum now is less than half of those who favour an independent Scotland. Only...

Duty Solicitor Scheme (13 Mar 2024)

Kevin Foster: to fully practise. To tackle the issue of people retiring in five years’ time, we need to start now. The issue of the duty solicitor scheme also links to one of the biggest achievements of Boris Johnson’s premiership: putting in place plans to recruit an additional 20,000 police officers as part of the national uplift programme, which has now been delivered. Extra police officers...

Scottish Parliament: Scotland’s Economy (13 Mar 2024)

Willie Rennie: .... We should remember that the past 10 years have enveloped this country in chaos, from the independence referendum, which had a direct impact on the business community and our economy, to Brexit, Boris Johnson, the pandemic and the infamous Liz Truss budget. It has been a decade of political uncertainty, and the economy has been undermined. However, the Scottish policy context is...

Parents and Carers of Infants: Support (12 Mar 2024)

Andrea Leadsom: of the hon. Member for Denton and Reddish. As well as the support from Dame Tessa Jowell, Lord Field, Lord Blunkett, Lord Cameron, my right hon. Friend the Member for Maidenhead (Mrs May), Boris Johnson and our present Prime Minister, who all support this crucial early days agenda, I pay particular tribute to the support from my hon. Friend the Member for East Worthing and...

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (11 Mar 2024)

Wes Streeting: his own party, let alone the country. As Lord Lloyd-Webber might have written if he were scripting a new musical for the Conservative party, they are past the point of no return and looking to Boris Johnson, saying “Wishing you were somehow here again.” I have to give credit where it is due: this is a Budget so bad that it has done what was previously unthinkable: it has united the...

Public Bill Committee: Investigatory Powers (Amendment) Bill [Lords]: Clause 22 - Interception and examination of communications: Members of Parliament etc ( 7 Mar 2024)

Kevan Jones: But, Minister, let us be honest: a lot of things that we would have taken for granted were ignored in Downing Street over the last few years. Until Boris Johnson became Prime Minister, it had been a great part of our constitution that convention was followed. Surely it would therefore be better to have the point about notification in the Bill; otherwise, we are leaving it to the free will of...

Higher Education - Motion to Take Note ( 7 Mar 2024)

Lord Bilimoria: ...this House in 2007 to bring in the two-year post-graduation work visa. It was brought in in 2008 by a Labour Government, taken away in 2012 by Theresa May as Home Secretary, and brought back in by Boris Johnson in 2021. Just look at how the number of international students has rocketed; yet this Government seem to have an anti-international student attitude—an anti-immigration attitude....

Scottish Parliament: United Kingdom Spring Statement ( 7 Mar 2024)

Kenneth Gibson: Thank you, Presiding Officer , and I thank the First Minister for his answer. The toxic Tory legacy of Boris Johnson, Liz Truss and Rishi Sunak is that, for the first time, per capita incomes at the end of this UK Parliament will be lower than at its start. Does the First Minister agree with the Scottish Chambers of Commerce that the “overriding impression” is that the chancellor’s...

Income Tax (Charge) ( 6 Mar 2024)

Robert Syms: ...about this Budget in my speech, but I will try. I will start with the context. We faced the worst public health pandemic for 100 years. We took that on, and made some difficult decisions, because Boris Johnson wanted to save frail people from dying. We sometimes forget how scary and difficult it was dealing with that pandemic. I admit that I was somewhat sceptical of lockdown, and voted...

Foreign Affairs - Motion to Take Note (Continued) ( 5 Mar 2024)

Lord Wallace of Saltaire: ...America’s closest European partner, acting as the bridge between regionally focused continental countries and their transatlantic security guarantor. Since Brexit, we have lost that position. Boris Johnson as Prime Minister attempted to replace it by proposing his tilt to the Pacific—to become America’s partner in facing the challenge of containing China. Whoever wins the coming US...

Foreign Affairs - Motion to Take Note ( 5 Mar 2024)

Lord Robathan: ...a great deal has been said. This war in Europe is the most serious for nearly 80 years. The war is a mixture of World War I attrition and 21st-century high-tech drones and the like. I congratulate Boris Johnson—I do not often—who was of course a great school friend of my noble friend the Foreign Secretary. I also congratulate the UK Government on their steadfast support for Ukraine in...

Windrush - Motion to Take Note (29 Feb 2024)

Lord Woolley of Woodford: ...all those Prime Ministers still alive and with us from the 1970s to come here, collectively, and sincerely apologise. They include John Major, Tony Blair, Gordon Brown, David Cameron, Theresa May, Boris Johnson, Liz Truss and Rishi Sunak. We need a collective, heartfelt apology for the damage caused, before it is too late.

Pedicabs (London) Bill [Lords] (28 Feb 2024)

Nickie Aiken: ..., but because of the way such Bills fall due to a single objection, mine have failed. Therefore, I am truly grateful for what the Government have done, first under the former Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, who was 100% behind the wish to secure pedicab legislation. He agreed with the then Transport Secretary, my right hon. Friend the Member for Welwyn Hatfield (Grant Shapps), to put a...

Northern Ireland - Motion for an Humble Address: Amendment to the Motion (27 Feb 2024)

Baroness Suttie: ...that they have been let down; there were some powerful speeches on that. They feel that they have been let down on several occasions since Brexit, perhaps particularly by the former Prime Minister Boris Johnson. They feel that they have been lied to and that, rightly, some of the past agreements to try to get over the impasse have been ever so slightly overspun; the noble Lord, Lord...

BBC News Impartiality: Government's Role — [Hannah Bardell in the Chair] (27 Feb 2024)

Kirsty Blackman: ...there in the broadcasting. Many UK Government decisions have undermined the impartiality of the BBC, including the director-general being a former Tory candidate, and including a personal friend of Boris Johnson being made the chair of the BBC—a Tory donor who donated £400,000 to the party and lent £800,000 to Mr Johnson specifically. So there is an issue with impartiality—an issue...
