Honesty in Politics — [Mrs Sheryll Murray in the Chair] (23 Oct 2023)

Owen Thompson: ...is having on society. If we do not do something—I am not saying that I have all the answers—there is a danger of sliding down the same slope. As has been touched on, the former Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, lied to the public and Parliament. He was found by independent ethics advisers to have broken the ministerial code after being found guilty by a Met police investigation, yet...

Regulatory Impact Assessments Bill (20 Oct 2023)

Philip Davies: ...the Government had done a cost-benefit analysis of HS2. They just kept it quiet, because it did not deliver what people wanted it to deliver. Andrew Gilligan, who was the transport adviser when Boris Johnson was Prime Minister, revealed that, even before the latest increase in cost, the Treasury’s cost-benefit analysis had shown that for every pound spent on HS2, it would deliver only a...

9. Short Debate: Breaking the class ceiling — Building an egalitarian Wales (18 Oct 2023)

Rhianon Passmore: ...here have lived all their lives under successive Tory Prime Ministers: David Cameron, privately educated at Eton and Oxford University; Theresa May, privately educated and at Oxford University; Boris Johnson, privately educated in Eton and then Oxford; Liz Truss, Oxford; Rishi Sunak, a private education at Winchester College and Oxford University; and on and on. Our present...

7. Legislative Consent Motion on the Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill (17 Oct 2023)

Alun Davies: .... But I think it's important that we do not simply accept these legislative consent motions, but we actually debate the issues that are around them. When levelling-up was launched by I think it was Boris Johnson, when he was making up with Michael Gove, he was very clear. 'Levelling up', he said, 'is a moral, social and economic programme for the whole of government.' and he was very clear...

Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill: Clause 148 - Guidance (17 Oct 2023)

Anum Qaisar: ..., we are seeing the Tories spending money that should be for Scotland on improving their own areas. We know what the Tories think of spending in Scotland. Those of us on the SNP Benches remember Boris Johnson, former Prime Minister and champion of levelling up, saying that a pound spent in Croydon “is of far more value to the country than a pound spent in Strathclyde.” Once again, the...

Adult Social Care (Adult Social Care Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (16 Oct 2023)

Baroness Wheeler: ...what was heavily trailed in the press at the time as the imminent publication of the Government’s long-awaited 10-year social care plan, which we all recall had been supposedly scrunched up in Boris Johnson’s back pocket way back in 2010. The Government’s 2021 White Paper had been strong on a vision of what social care could look like, but only partial as a future plan and on the...

Net Zero by 2050 (16 Oct 2023)

Ed Miliband: ...was exposed on national television. I say to her that it demeans her, it demeans her office and it demeans public debate. The Government said that they were going to move on from the premiership of Boris Johnson, but people will be deeply disturbed to find that that appears to mean dumping commitments to net zero and keeping his peculiar relationship to the truth.

Zero-emission Vehicles, Drivers and HS2 (16 Oct 2023)

Louise Haigh: ...a meeting with Simon Case before the Tory conference in which a decision on HS2 was taken? If not, why was a video recorded of the Prime Minister in No.10? Is he suggesting that he followed in Boris Johnson’s footsteps and recorded two versions just in case? And what of the economic impact? How many businesses does the Secretary of State expect to go under as a result of this decision?...

Net Zero (Economic Affairs Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (16 Oct 2023)

Lord Lennie: ...storage. Is there any sign of this happening? Since the report was published, a number of government changes have affected energy policy. The Energy Bill was introduced in 2022 under Prime Minister Boris Johnson. It included measures intended to leverage investment in clean technologies, protect customers and maintain the safety, security and resilience of the energy system. It reached...

3. Statement by the Minister for Climate Change: Net-zero Commitments (26 Sep 2023)

Julie James: Diolch, Delyth. Who would have thought that you and I would be on the side of Boris Johnson and George Osborne and Janet would be against them? In what world has that come to pass? But that is where we find ourselves, because it turns out that Janet just agrees with whoever the current Prime Minister is, regardless of their policies or their commitments. I really regret that that's what's...

Ukraine - Motion to Take Note (21 Sep 2023)

Earl Attlee: ...so desperately needed? Some time ago, my heart sank when one of David Cameron’s advisers confidently stated that we no longer needed armoured brigades with their expensive armoured battle groups. Boris Johnson said much the same thing about main battle tanks. In the reserves, I was a military logistician, not a teeth arms man. However, I know that a competently led, properly equipped,...

UK-EU Relationship (European Affairs Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (20 Sep 2023)

Lord Lamont of Lerwick: .... It was a seismic event but, having happened, it is in everybody’s interest that we should have as close and co-operative a relationship as possible. It is not a betrayal of Brexit. It was Boris Johnson who said after Brexit that we must concentrate on developing a close and co-operative relationship with Europe. On what basis should that co-operation and collaboration happen? Again, I...

Conference Adjournment (19 Sep 2023)

Marcus Jones: ...to be provided. On London, I just point out that, as I understand it, in his first two terms the current Mayor, Sadiq Khan, provided 7,500 affordable homes per year, whereas his predecessor, Boris Johnson, provided 12,000 per year in his time. So there is a lot more to do and a lot more that can be done to give people housing, particularly in our capital. I hear what the hon. Member for...

4. Statement by the Counsel General and Minister for the Constitution: The Senedd Cymru (Members and Elections) Bill (19 Sep 2023)

Mick Antoniw: ..., but the hypocrisy is when you talk about the costs of improving and developing our democracy. Over the period of time that devolution has existed, 800 unelected life peers have been created. Boris Johnson created 105 life peers during the three years of his Prime Ministership. Liz Truss is recommending two for each of the six weeks she was in Government. And at the same time, you've...

UK Export Performance (18 Sep 2023)

Gareth Thomas: ...debate will tell the House why he thinks other countries of similar wealth and status have been doing better at exporting their goods and services than us. One of last year’s Prime Ministers, Boris Johnson, thought poor export figures were down to a lack of ambition from businesses themselves; I hope the Minister does not share that view. Hidden deep in the last White Paper on trade was...

Northern Ireland Budget (No. 2) Bill - Second Reading (and remaining stages) (14 Sep 2023)

Lord Lexden: .... As the Unionist Party, it would have retained at its very heart an absolutely overriding sense of responsibility for the varied interests of all parts of our union. I think it is unlikely that Mr Boris Johnson would have become leader of an organisation called the Unionist Party, since he cared nothing for the union, as he showed with his infamous betrayal of Northern Ireland four years...

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Government (Freedom of Information Request) (14 Sep 2023)

...to take a lecture about disrespecting Parliament from the Conservatives, who illegally shut down the Parliament. I am meant to take lectures about truth and honesty from the party that gave us Boris Johnson. The difference between myself and Liam Kerr, and between the Scottish National Party and the Conservatives, is that the SNP wants to power our just transition and our offshore...

Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill - Report (7th Day) (Continued): Amendment 242 (13 Sep 2023)

Lord Moylan: ...in practice over a lengthy period. It is fair to say that, under the independent and then Labour mayor Ken Livingstone, they were quite often rather scratchy. They improved considerably when Boris Johnson became mayor. I would like to think—if noble Lords would allow me to be a little boastful—that that was because of the number of people working with him who had experience of local...

7. Legislative Consent Motion on the Energy Bill (12 Sep 2023)

Julie James: ...then paused for several months as the UK Government responded to the energy price crisis. The Bill has been developed incorporating the views of various Secretaries of State and Prime Ministers. Boris Johnson resigned as Prime Minister the day after the Bill was introduced into the House of Lords, and we are now on the fourth Secretary of State for this Bill. I have made repeated requests...

Mr Jagtar Singh Johal - Question (12 Sep 2023)

Baroness Kennedy of The Shaws: ...are now facing huge delays in our own criminal justice system, but six years is a long time to wait for due process. We keep being told this by the Indian authorities—when the issue was raised by Boris Johnson some years back, he was given the same reassurance that there was going to be a trial very soon. Here we are, six years on and there has not been a trial, so not surprisingly the...
