The general principles of the Senedd Cymru (Members and Elections) Bill and the financial resolution in respect of the Senedd Cymru (Members and Elections) Bill (30 Jan 2024)

Alun Davies: ...'ve got too many politicians, we don't need any more. What was running through my mind was, 'Has he had this conversation with Lord Cameron? Has he had this conversation with the family members of Boris Johnson? Has he had this conversation with all the donors and cronies and hangers-on that now populate the red benches in London?' And, of course, the answer is, 'No, he hasn't.' And he's...

3. Statement by the First Minister: The final report of the Independent Commission on the Constitutional Future of Wales (30 Jan 2024)

Mark Drakeford: ...a decade. In December 2019, the Conservative Party was able to form the first clear majority Government at Westminster since 1992, and the first since devolution. The Prime Minister of the time, Boris Johnson, told his supporters that he regarded devolution as the greatest mistake of the New Labour Government and proceeded to deal with legislatures in Belfast, Cardiff and Edinburgh on that...

Scottish Parliament: European Union (30 Jan 2024)

Christine Grahame: .... What happened to the “oven-ready” meal? Promises that were made include—not in any particular order of merit—the better together campaign director Blair McDougall telling Scotland that Boris Johnson would never become Prime Minister. The biggest and most disputed claim that was put forward by the leave camp was that Britain sent £350 million a week to the EU and that that money...

Road Traffic Deaths: Police Investigations (29 Jan 2024)

Mark Pawsey: ...has been endorsed over the years by all the Prime Ministers since that time, from Tony Blair through to Gordon Brown, David Cameron, my right hon. Friend the Member for Maidenhead (Mrs May) and Boris Johnson, along with every single Metropolitan Police Commissioner since 2000, and, most especially and significantly, by the Metropolitan police’s traffic command and its officers. The...

1. Questions to the First Minister: Questions Without Notice from the Party Leaders (23 Jan 2024)

Mark Drakeford: ...talking about were actions that lay in the hands of the UK Government, and negotiations between the company and the UK Government had already been protracted. I wrote to the then Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, on 22 July 2022, setting out all these points for him as well, and he replied to me in mid August saying that these were all points that he recognised, that his Government was...

Intergovernmental Relations Within the United Kingdom - Motion to Take Note (18 Jan 2024)

Lord Wallace of Saltaire: ...this issue, partly because levelling up has clearly not succeeded. I feel resentment from the people I meet in Yorkshire about the failure of levelling up, as well as about the promises made by Boris Johnson and others. The thought that we would have begun to have improved infrastructure and greater finance for local authority action has been disappointed. We would be much better off if we...

Cabinet Office: Personal Smartphones: Government Business (18 Jan 2024)

Alistair Carmichael: ...that Ministers, officials and advisers should be able to share their thinking and thoughts in private on occasion. However, the truth of matter is that the constant drip of stories—whether about Boris Johnson, Nicola Sturgeon or anybody else—and WhatsApp messages not being available to hold people accountable, is harming public confidence in government and politics. Will the Minister...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill: Clause 3 - Disapplication of the Human Rights Act 1998 (17 Jan 2024)

Stephen Kinnock: ...to inflict on our weary and baffled nation. Let us not forget that the Rwanda saga started off as Operation Save Big Dog, that desperate and, thankfully, doomed attempt to save the skin of Boris Johnson. But then, for some bizarre reason known only to Conservative Members, it did not fade away once Mr Johnson exited stage right—quite the opposite. It took on a life of its own, evolving...

HS2 Cancellation and Network North — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (17 Jan 2024)

Rob Butler: ...in 2019 in complete opposition to HS2. As soon as I arrived in Parliament, I worked hard with colleagues in the HS2 review group to try to get the entire project scrapped by the then Prime Minister Boris Johnson, but sadly we were unsuccessful. Since the approval of phase 1, I have been tireless in trying to secure better mitigation for my constituents and in holding HS2 Ltd to account...

Online Filter Bubbles: Misinformation and Disinformation — [Sir Mark Hendrick in the Chair] (16 Jan 2024)

John Nicolson: ...who fall prey; even graduates of the world’s most elite universities can become victims. Donald Trump thought that injecting bleach could cure covid and we now know from the covid inquiry that Boris Johnson wondered whether blowing a hairdryer up his nostrils might save him from the pandemic. Filter bubbles pose an enormous threat to our democracy. We know how heavily engaged Vladimir...

1. Questions to the First Minister: The Impact of Brexit (16 Jan 2024)

Mark Drakeford: ...to the fact that, as of 15 January, they will need new animal health certificates in order to be able to export their goods on to Northern Ireland. Do you remember what the then Prime Minister Boris Johnson said—how over his dead body would there be a trade barrier down the Irish Sea? He said that, as I remember, several weeks before he then concluded a deal doing exactly that. And the...

Climate Change: Impact on Developing Nations - Motion to Take Note (11 Jan 2024)

Lord Purvis of Tweed: ...around the world voting this year. There is likely to be a fair number of people in this country doing so, and many of them will be looking at parties’ commitments on international development. Boris Johnson promised he would not get rid of DfID and then shortly got rid of it. Liz Truss promised to reverse the savage cuts to women and girls aid programmes and a month later reneged on it....

Proposed British Jewish History Month (11 Jan 2024)

Nickie Aiken: ...the decades, including council leaders Dame Shirley Porter, Melvyn Caplan and latterly Sir Simon Milton, who was a major political influence on me as leader of Westminster City Council and later Boris Johnson’s right-hand man at City Hall when he was Mayor of London. A British Jew who is probably responsible for the start of my political career is my right hon. Friend the Member for...

Parliamentary Democracy and Standards in Public Life - Motion to Take Note (11 Jan 2024)

Baroness Chapman of Darlington: ...to be seen as credible by the public who elect them. Much has been said and written on standards in public life in recent years, most notably perhaps on the conduct of the former Prime Minister Boris Johnson during the Covid pandemic. I will not dwell on this, but it would be bizarre not to acknowledge the damage that episode has done. Rules were made and broken by the same people, and a...

Scottish Parliament: Public Service Values (11 Jan 2024)

Carol Mochan: .... Before my colleagues on the SNP benches start to jump up and down at me, I want to make this point: I am no friend of the Tories. I believe that the chaos that has been created by Liz Truss and Boris Johnson, on top of the constant Tory attack on working-class people, means that the Tories have undoubtedly contributed to a raid on our public purse. However, to be clear, our job in this...

Storm Henk - Statement (10 Jan 2024)

Lord Watson of Wyre Forest: ...accurate? Will he take a personal interest in proposed flood defences for the people of Wyre Forest in Worcestershire? The good people of Bewdley were promised defences by the then Prime Minister Boris Johnson but, since then, have been flooded twice.

Prime Minister: Engagements (10 Jan 2024)

Keir Starmer: ...that the Prime Minister is putting forward a proposal. We will look at the details, and it is the job of all of us to make sure that it delivers the justice that is so needed. Back in 2022, when Boris Johnson claimed he would send asylum seekers to Rwanda, one ambitious Tory MP had reservations. He agreed with Labour that it would not work, it was a waste of money and it was the latest in...

Scottish Parliament: Constitution, Europe, External Affairs and Culture Committee Report: “How Devolution is Changing Post-EU” ( 9 Jan 2024)

Neil Bibby: ...and Scottish Governments. Scottish Labour recognises that there was a deterioration in relations between the current UK Government and all the devolved Governments post-Brexit, particularly under Boris Johnson. We also recognise that, even before Brexit, there was a poor relationship between the Conservative and SNP Governments, as noted by the Smith commission in the committee’s report....

Defence: Ukraine: Military Aid ( 8 Jan 2024)

Richard Foord: In 2022, the then Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced what military aid the UK would make available to Ukraine through to April 2023; in September 2022, the subsequent Prime Minister, the right hon. Member for South West Norfolk (Elizabeth Truss), announced—a full 15 months ago—what military aid she would make available to Ukraine through to April 2024. Why has there not yet been an...
