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...

Scottish Parliament: Budget (Scotland) (No 3) Bill (27 Feb 2024)

Keith Brown: ...that it should be done—why did she not listen to business when it told her its concerns about Brexit, which has had a far greater impact on business in Scotland? Is it the case that she shares Boris Johnson’s attitude to business? I cannot use the word that he used when he said what he would do to it, but I can say to members that it starts with an F. That was the Tory approach to...

Written Answers — Cabinet Office: Boris Johnson (23 Feb 2024)

Emily Thornberry: To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office, if he will publish the minutes of the Prime Minister's (a) meetings and (b) other discussions with his predecessor Mr Boris Johnson in the last nine months.

7. Plaid Cymru Debate: Wales-specific COVID inquiry (21 Feb 2024)

Mabon ap Gwynfor: ...public safety measures, tailored to the particular characteristics of the Welsh population. This, of course, contrasted markedly with the disastrous bluster, inconsistency and recklessness of the Boris Johnson administration, and which earned the First Minister some praise. But it would be completely disingenuous to pretend that major mistakes were not made here in Wales. The delay in...

Ceasefire in Gaza (21 Feb 2024)

David Lammy: ...war, the Government have followed us. We called for violent west bank settlers to be sanctioned on 6 November, and again on 9 November—the Government moved on 14 December. For two years since Boris Johnson’s appalling letter, we have been calling for the Government to accept the International Criminal Court’s jurisdiction over the conduct of all parties in the Occupied Palestinian...

Immigration Rules and Border Security (20 Feb 2024)

Barry Sheerman: ..., because so many wealthy Russian plutocrats have been flying into this country on small private aircraft and helicopters for a long time. I have asked questions about that. Perhaps we should ask Boris Johnson’s friend in the other place, Lord Lebedev of Hampton and Siberia, what he knows about it.

Public Bill Committee: Trade (Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership) Bill [Lords]: Clause 3 - Procurement (20 Feb 2024)

Gareth Thomas: Does my hon. Friend remember that once upon a time, one of the Prime Ministers not so long ago—I think his name was Boris Johnson—backed the idea that we should buy British? However, we have not heard anything recently about that concept. Certainly, the approach in the CPTPP—the lack of an enforceable labour standards provision, for example—suggests that Ministers have given up on the...

UK Economy (19 Feb 2024)

Richard Foord: The Office for Budget Responsibility assessed Boris Johnson’s trade and co-operation agreement, which sets out the trading relationship between the UK and the EU, at the beginning of last year, and it said that the TCA has reduced long-run productivity by 4%. Why does the Minister think that is?

Windsor Framework (Constitutional Status of Northern Ireland) Regulations 2024 - Motion to Approve (13 Feb 2024)

Lord Hain: ...a very hard Brexit—the harder the trade border in the Irish Sea and the greater the discomfort for unionists and those Conservatives who trumpet their support for the union but—notably like Boris Johnson and the noble Lord, Lord Frost, did with their Brexit deal—in fact often betray it. None of us knows how all this will play out over the next decade or so, but we can be sure that...

Conversion Therapy Prohibition (Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity) Bill [HL] - Second Reading ( 9 Feb 2024)

Baroness Chakrabarti: ...the intentions of the noble Baroness, Lady Burt. I think some kind of intervention in this area is long overdue. We have heard from the speeches of Theresa May when she was Prime Minister, and Boris Johnson, when he was Prime Minister, made similar remarks. It is always dangerous to attempt to gauge the consensus of your Lordships’ House, but, like many noble Lords, I do not think that...

Scottish Parliament: Michael Matheson (Resignation) ( 8 Feb 2024)

Humza Yousaf: ...stand down, and I have accepted his resignation. The Conservatives talking about integrity in public life will be quite galling for those who are listening. I remind Douglas Ross that he called Boris Johnson an “honest man”. That would be the Boris Johnson who lied about partygate. That would be the Conservatives, of course, who awarded multimillion-pound personal protective equipment...

Ukraine Conflict - Question ( 7 Feb 2024)

Lord Singh of Wimbledon: My Lords, according to both Ukrainian and Russian media, former PM Boris Johnson, in a visit to Kyiv in 2022, persuaded President Zelensky to reject a peace deal with Putin that would have led to the withdrawal of Russian troops in return for an undertaking that Ukraine would not join NATO. Does the Minister agree that this was an opportunity missed and has since cost thousands of lives?

2. Questions to the Minister for Health and Social Services: Questions Without Notice from Party Spokespeople ( 7 Feb 2024)

Mabon ap Gwynfor: It is disappointing to hear the Minister blame London for everything. While Boris Johnson and London were certainly to blame for a number of things, here in Wales the Government decided to introduce mask wearing at a later date than in England, for instance, and it was the Welsh Government that decided to release or allow elderly people to go back to care homes. So, those are entirely Welsh...

Police Grant Report ( 7 Feb 2024)

Chris Philp: ...forces are being creative by, for example, co-locating with fire stations. Good police and crime commissioners avoided closing police stations. For example, the former Conservative Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, managed to largely avoid police station closures—closures that his predecessor, Ken Livingstone, had planned, and that his successor, Sadiq Khan, has in some cases carried out,...

Prime Minister: Engagements ( 7 Feb 2024)

Stephen Flynn: ..., who is in the Public Gallery. I also send my best wishes to King Charles for what will hopefully be a quick and full recovery. The public are used to the Tories gambling on the lives of others: Boris Johnson did it with public health during the pandemic, and his immediate successor did it with household finances. Not to be outdone, on Monday this week the Prime Minister accepted a crude...

Miscellaneous ( 6 Feb 2024)

Fleur Anderson: ...the extent of this and the fact that in 2022-23 alone, the total bill for Ministers’ severance pay was an unacceptable £933,000. Many had their jobs for just a few weeks in the dying days of Boris Johnson’s time or during the doomed 45-day premiership of the right hon. Member for South West Norfolk (Elizabeth Truss)—I informed her I would be mentioning her. They received three...

Industrial Strategy - Motion to Take Note ( 1 Feb 2024)

Lord Willetts: ...him in this debate, and I realised that there were some rather significant career parallels. We both began our careers as Treasury officials and both then moved to 10 Downing Street. He worked for Boris Johnson; I worked for Margaret Thatcher. I am now here on the Tory Benches and he is a Cross-Bencher, which may tell us something about the particular qualities of bipartisanship that he...

Scottish Parliament: Covid-19 Pandemic (Scottish Government Decisions) ( 1 Feb 2024)

...the decisions for purely epidemiological reasons. When it comes to the UK Government and the messages that we have seen, I remind Douglas Ross of what has been revealed. He had a Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, who he not only backed to the very end but invited to his party conference. According to the evidence that we have heard, Boris Johnson allegedly said, “let the bodies pile up...

Political Parties, Elections and Referendums (31 Jan 2024)

Dawn Butler: The Minister is better than this motion—let us all agree on that. Like the SNP spokesperson, the hon. Member for Glasgow North (Patrick Grady), I think it is a hangover from the Boris Johnson days, when the Electoral Commission upset him and he wanted to influence it. The Minister can correct me if I am wrong. The Government claim that this strategy will enhance the parliamentary...

UK-EU Trade: Small and Medium-sized Enterprises - Question (31 Jan 2024)

Baroness Quin: When the former Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, announced his trade deal with the EU in 2020, he said there would be no non-tariff barriers to trade between us and the EU. That claim has turned out to be spectacularly false, given the extra bureaucracy and costs that many businesses, particularly small businesses, are facing as a result of that deal. As we know, these burdens are due to get...
