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...

Ukraine (11 Sep 2023)

Bob Seely: ...Forces Minister, it is very difficult to argue that we do not have a fantastic strategic relationship, and I am mindful of the fantastic work this Government have done. Indeed, I pay tribute to Boris Johnson. I know he is not popular with some Members, including on the Opposition Front Bench, but he is phenomenally popular in Ukraine, where people still see him as the man who helped to...

Armed Forces - Motion to Take Note ( 7 Sep 2023)

Viscount Trenchard: ...for the artillery, which has been heavily used in Ukraine and whose stockpiles are therefore somewhat depleted. After Putin’s second illegal invasion of Ukraine, my right honourable friend Boris Johnson was quick to respond. We can hold our heads high in the world as a result. The decisive and strong response that the Government took at the time was widely recognised and crucial in...

Access to Broadband Services — [Sir Christopher Chope in the Chair] ( 6 Sep 2023)

Chris Bryant: ...advantages that might come from AI, we need significant broadband speeds as well. It is as vital as water, electricity and gas, as many hon. Members have said. That is why it is depressing that Boris Johnson—I think we are still allowed to refer to him—said in 2019 that the target for full fibre to all was 2025. The target now is just that 85% of premises will have access to...

House Of Lords: Appointments System - Question (19 Jul 2023)

Lord Wallace of Saltaire: I remind Conservative Peers that on a current poll basis the Conservatives have exactly twice the poll percentage of public support that we do, so we are not overrepresented. Particularly under Boris Johnson, the Conservatives have broken that agreement. Do the Government not accept that we are now in a position where any change of government would have to be accompanied either by the...

Prime Minister: Engagements (19 Jul 2023)

Barry Sheerman: Does the Prime Minister remember seven years ago, when he was a passionate supporter of leaving the European Union, along with his then best friend, Boris Johnson? Is he aware that Sir John Major now says, in every speech he makes, that that decision was catastrophic for the people of this country and living standards, as well as deeply damaging to our role, status and influence in the world?

Cost of Living: Private rented sector — [Dr Rupa Huq in the Chair] (18 Jul 2023)

Alex Davies-Jones: ...or mould. Colleagues will be aware that the Tory Government promised to ban no-fault evictions in England way back in 2019, three whole Prime Ministers ago. The disgraced former Prime Minister Boris Johnson also promised to ban them, but we are all familiar with his reputation for breaking promises. Of course, the disastrous short-lived tenure of the right hon. Member for South West...

Liaison Committee (17 Jul 2023)

Christopher Chope: ...Chairs meet together to comprise the Liaison Committee. The Liaison Committee is set up under Standing Order No. 145. An appointment was made in this Parliament by the former Member for Uxbridge, Boris Johnson, who as Prime Minister listened sympathetically to representations made by my hon. Friend the Member for Harwich and North Essex (Sir Bernard Jenkin), saying that he had not been...

Automotive Industry (12 Jul 2023)

Matt Western: ...s vernacular over the past few years, as we have heard. Make UK said that, under this Government, we have had a decade of “flip-flopping” on industrial strategy. Do they back business or not? Boris Johnson clearly did not, going by his immortal words. Of course, we had the kamikaze Budget of last autumn. That is all damaging to the way in which the global industry perceives the UK....

Antisocial Behaviour and Off-road Bikes (11 Jul 2023)

Sarah Jones: ...to close. Indeed, it is a great shame that nearly 700 police stations have been closed under this Government. What does that do to a community? Sixty were closed by the previous Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, when he was Mayor of London. Extraordinary figures. Labour will crack down on repeat offenders with our new respect orders. We will introduce new town centre patrols and a mandatory...

Privileges Committee Special Report (10 Jul 2023)

Brendan Clarke-Smith: As has been expressed already, people may have many views on Boris Johnson, but what we are here to discuss is the special report. For me, this is about the sense of disappointment that I felt at not having the opportunity to see or comment on the report in advance, or to clarify, as my hon. Friend the Member for Workington (Mark Jenkinson) and others have clearly said. That is an...

Illegal Migration Bill - Report (3rd Day): Amendment 168AB ( 5 Jul 2023)

Lord Coaker: ...record. The Government may say that this is all unnecessary, and many of us thought that to be the case. However, in the media over the weekend, there were reports that the former Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, has urged the current Prime Minister to fast-track the implementation of the Rwanda migrant policy by changing the law to designate it a safe country. He said that the Government...

Prime Minister: Engagements ( 5 Jul 2023)

Sarah Jones: Our absentee Prime Minister did not turn up for the Owen Paterson vote, he did not turn up for the Boris Johnson vote, he will not stand up to the MPs who called the Privileges Committee a kangaroo court, and yesterday he embarrassed himself by acting like a stroppy schoolboy in front of the Liaison Committee. With NHS waiting lists at a record high and the Tory mortgage penalty hitting my...

Home Department: Topical Questions ( 3 Jul 2023)

Yvette Cooper: The Home Secretary will be aware of the documentary last week on the relationship between Boris Johnson and others, and former KGB officer Alexander Lebedev, and about the meeting in an Italian villa, the ignoring of security advice on Lords appointments, and the decision not to sanction Alexander Lebedev. Given the importance of national security, will she tell the House whether she has any...

Lawfare (29 Jun 2023)

David Davis: ...and he has also donated £750,000 to the Conservative Party since 2017. He claims to have paid £250,000 to become a member of the party’s ‘Advisory Board’ which has regular meetings with Boris Johnson and leading Cabinet members, and claims that he was promised the chairmanship of a new body, the Conservative Friends of the Middle East and North Africa, a promise that has yet to...

Public Bill Committee: Energy Bill [Lords]: New Clause 90 - Objections by planning authorities to applications for consent under section 36 or 37 of the Electricity Act 1989 (29 Jun 2023)

Alan Brown: ...about the issues that the new clauses cover. Taking offshore wind in the round, there is a target of 50 GW of deployment by 2030, although it has to be said that that was set largely on a whim by Boris Johnson, who raised the target from 30 GW, to 40 GW and then suddenly to 50 GW. Now, I am all for that ambition and that target, and if we achieve the deployment of 50 GW of offshore wind...

Fishing Industry (29 Jun 2023)

Gavin Newlands: ...-based Scottish White Fish Producers Association, who told the Daily Record last week: “One of the biggest negatives for me was the hyperbole spoken by the Michael Goves, the David Frosts, the Boris Johnsons, who all knew what was going on and they were still spinning it and spinning it. And they’re still spinning it because, here we are, they’re still talking about how post-2026,...

Business of the House (29 Jun 2023)

Thangam Debbonaire: ...which is neither handy nor helpful? Is that perhaps why she should not be surprised—nor should any of us—by the breaking news from the court? While the current Prime Minister focuses on keeping Boris Johnson’s sycophants in his own party happy, introduces new laws which by his Government’s own admission will not work and now seem to have been found illegal, and swerves scrutiny,...

1. Questions to the Minister for Economy: Questions Without Notice from Party Spokespeople (28 Jun 2023)

Vaughan Gething: ...here in Wales, and it's actually been faster than most regions within the UK. The confounder is actually in London and the south-east that significantly outperforms every other part of the UK. Boris Johnson hasn't always been straight with people in every statement he's made, but he did say, he did recognise at one point, when he talked about levelling up, he recognised that London and the...

Energy Company Obligation Schemes — [Ian Paisleyin the Chair] (27 Jun 2023)

Steven Bonnar: ...front. Our planet is facing unprecedented challenges, with soaring sea temperatures, and action is urgent. It was disheartening that a previous BEIS Secretary and disgraced former Prime Minister Boris Johnson blocked plans for a public information campaign on energy efficiency. How much could consumers have saved if they had received the necessary information and support? Many of our...
