Apprenticeship Levy — [Dr Rupa Huq in the Chair] (22 Nov 2023)

Therese Coffey: ...full time, can still be less than 20% in terms of out-of-job training. Employers really do need to be listened to. I recall a visit that I made to Severn Trent as part of kickstart; I went with Boris Johnson. The chief executive, the excellent Liv Garfield, was pleading to see changes, because she believed that she would be able to produce at least 50% more apprenticeships that would help,...

Trade (Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (21 Nov 2023)

Lord Holmes of Richmond: ...on International Paralympic Day and with a year to go to the opening ceremony of the Games, he agreed to play in the centre of Trafalgar Square a game of tennis against the then Mayor of London, Boris Johnson. I will not trouble the House with who was the victor of that sporting clash of titans but, due to the sotto voce classical cursing which was taking place, I feared that at any point...

Investigatory Powers (Amendment) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (20 Nov 2023)

Lord Murphy of Torfaen: ...was a long time ago that that happened. I understand that, because we now need three people, including the Prime Minister, to consider these matters, but if the Prime Minister is incapacitated—as Boris Johnson was when he had Covid at that time—what do you do? Presumably, you go to the Secretary of State to be able to deal with that issue. I think that is sensible, but I take my noble...

Cop28 (16 Nov 2023)

Therese Coffey: ...right hon. Friend the Member for Maidenhead (Mrs May), when she was Prime Minister, who made the change to a 100% reduction by law. Those legal targets matter. We should also recognise that it was Boris Johnson who really made a difference at COP26. He brought nature and the world together to make sure that we would keep up the momentum. There is no doubt in my mind that covid was a bit...

Scottish Parliament: Michael Matheson (Expenses) (16 Nov 2023)

The First Minister: First of all, to get a lecture on principles and integrity from the party that gave us Boris Johnson is quite something. In a week when Douglas Ross’s party’s flagship policy on Rwanda was torn to pieces by the Supreme Court—[ Interruption .]

King’s Speech - Debate (6th Day) (15 Nov 2023)

Lord Hannan of Kingsclere: ...Churchill. There have been 1,012 such biographies and his was the 1,010th, but I think it is at or close to the top of almost every critic’s list, above even, dare I say, The Churchill Factor by Boris Johnson, in which the great war leader is—oddly enough, who would have thought it?—reimagined as a witty after-dinner speaker and right-wing journalist who is cruelly excluded by the...

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Ministerial Code (First Minister and Deputy First Minister) (15 Nov 2023)

Alex Cole-Hamilton: I am grateful for Daniel Johnson’s intervention, which cuts to the heart of the issue. The background chatter behind the decisions that were taken and the culture that they reveal are as important as the decisions themselves. We all agreed that the Government would make mistakes, but if those decisions were backed by science they would stand up to scrutiny by the inquiry that we all knew...

Bridges in London: Maintenance Funding (14 Nov 2023)

Fleur Anderson: ...bridge will be reopened. It is a grade 2 listed heritage suspension bridge. It was built in 1887 but closed to motor vehicles in April 2019 when fissures were found, making it dangerous. Boris Johnson said at Prime Minister’s questions here in this place on 21 October 2020 that it would be reopened, but it is still closed. I held an Adjournment debate on the issue in June last year,...

King’s Speech - Debate (5th Day) (14 Nov 2023)

Lord Bilimoria: ...help from Innovate UK, developed the world’s first hydrogen-powered train, hydroFLEX. As President of the CBI at the time, I was on board that train with His Majesty the King and Prime Minister Boris Johnson. It was a great example of universities, Governments and business working together. What are the Government doing to promote this phenomenal collaboration even further? AI was...

Economic Growth (14 Nov 2023)

Simon Clarke: ...for my constituents or for my country, and I believe that a move, as the Growth Commission has suggested this morning, to a zonal planning system along the lines suggested by my right hon. Friend Boris Johnson when he was Prime Minister and by my right hon. Friend the Member for Newark (Robert Jenrick) when he was Secretary of State, would be the right thing to do. Schroders has estimated...

Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories (14 Nov 2023)

David Lammy: ...International Criminal Court, as does the Labour party, but he failed to answer whether the Government recognise its jurisdiction to address the conduct of all parties in Gaza. As Prime Minister, Boris Johnson rejected that jurisdiction and attacked the court. Labour recognises the ICC’s jurisdiction. Can the Minister clarify his Government’s position today? Gaza is in a humanitarian...

King’s Speech - Debate (4th Day) (13 Nov 2023)

Lord Warner: .... I want to speak this evening about making better use of public expenditure, an issue totally ignored in the King’s Speech. First, I will address an old favourite: adult social care, which Boris Johnson promised to fix within a year back in 2019. After a few financial handouts to local government, the Government have given up on fixing social care’s workforce, funding and...

Building an NHS Fit for the Future (13 Nov 2023)

Steve Tuckwell: .... Thanks to the combined efforts of all involved, including the local NHS trust and Hillingdon Council, work has begun on delivering that new hospital. I pay a specific tribute to my predecessor, Boris Johnson, for his tireless efforts in support of Hillingdon Hospital during his time as MP for Uxbridge and South Ruislip. He campaigned continuously for the funding to be secured and for the...

King’s Speech - Debate (3rd Day) ( 9 Nov 2023)

Lord Wallace of Saltaire: .... Since 2017, the constitutional conventions that structure the way Britain is governed have been seriously damaged by competing factions and populist politicians within the Conservative Party. Boris Johnson claimed to govern by “the will of the people”, that dangerous phrase, rather than by parliamentary consent. Ministers challenged the rule of law. The Commons has been sidelined to...

Making Britain a Clean Energy Superpower ( 9 Nov 2023)

Richard Thomson: ...We need to learn the lesson that future oil and gas can only slow the rate of decline, and that we need to be doing much better in incentivising the technologies of the future. When Prime Minister Boris Johnson paid a visit to the Moray East offshore wind farm, he made a predictably vacuous and facetious remark, saying that Margaret Thatcher was a green pioneer through her virtual...

Scottish Parliament: Covid-19 Inquiry ( 9 Nov 2023)

...some of the messages from individual witnesses, that not a single Scottish Government minister said, “let the bodies pile high”—[ Interruption .] That, of course, was said by none other than Boris Johnson—a man under whom Douglas Ross served in Government, whom he defended to the hilt—[ Interruption .]

Scottish Parliament: Covid-19 Inquiry (Legal Advice) ( 9 Nov 2023)

Anas Sarwar: 2. Bereaved families and their lawyers are watching these exchanges. I do not think that we should use Boris Johnson as our measure of success in Scotland. It could not be clearer: the First Minister has lost control of his Government and he appears to have misled Parliament on more than one occasion. Let us focus on the substance, because this matters. The Covid pandemic was our country’s...

Breaking Down Barriers to Opportunity ( 8 Nov 2023)

Angela Eagle: ...now, it is possible to discern the looming battle to be the next Leader of the Opposition commencing between the current Home Secretary and the Trade Secretary. We can spot the dwindling band of Boris Johnson supporters publishing absurd, conspiracy-laden books such as “The Plot” to explain his defenestration, when the rest of us only need to follow the covid inquiry to appreciate what...

Debate on the Address: [1st Day] ( 7 Nov 2023)

Kevin Foster: ...welfare is close to the hearts of many constituents and I welcome the Government’s dramatic change in approach to animal welfare issues since May 2015, particularly under the leadership of Boris Johnson, who was keen to push forward on those issues. I am disappointed we did not take the opportunity to pass the Animal Welfare (Kept Animals) Bill in the last Session, but we have seen good...

King’s Speech - Debate (1st Day): Motion to Adjourn ( 7 Nov 2023)

Baroness Smith of Basildon: ...to your Lordships’ House seven years ago. He has considerable experience in the political world from Scotland, with 14 years spent as a councillor in the great city of Edinburgh; and, as Boris Johnson’s senior adviser in Downing Street on constitutional issues, he must have some fine tales to tell. I am sure that he would have an enthusiastic publisher for his book. It is probably to...
