Israel/Gaza - Motion to Take Note (24 Oct 2023)

Lord Collins of Highbury: difference between us. I have been shadowing him for many years now and it is incredible how, with events in the world, we have become closer. I hope that is a good sign for the future, too. As Keir Starmer said yesterday, the brutal attack in Israel just over two weeks ago was the darkest day in Jewish history since the Holocaust. The horror and suffering caused is seared into memories...

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

Nia Griffith: ...denial, squirming around and changing his story at the Dispatch Box. We can understand why the leader of the Labour party, my right hon. and learned Friend the Member for Holborn and St Pancras (Keir Starmer), called for him to be referred to the Committee of Privileges. The problem, as we all know, is that that behaviour by a former Prime Minister has completely shattered the public’s...

Israel and Gaza (23 Oct 2023)

Keir Starmer: Thank you, Mr Speaker, and I thank the Prime Minister for the advance copy of his statement. The brutal attack in Israel just over two weeks ago was the darkest day in Jewish history since the holocaust—two weeks of grief for the innocent people who lost brothers, sisters, children; two weeks of torture for the families whose loved ones were taken hostage by Hamas. There was a small glimmer...

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

Rhianon Passmore: When the leader of the Labour Party, Keir Starmer, addressed the recent Labour Party conference in Liverpool, he confronted head-on the concern that for too long the voice of the working class has felt undervalued, dialects unheard, and 200 years on from the charter of our Chartists in representational politics, in 2023, the Westminster Cabinet of Etonian millionaires has not changed either....

Prime Minister: Engagements (18 Oct 2023)

Keir Starmer: Can I start by warmly welcoming my hon. Friend the new Member for Rutherglen and Hamilton West (Michael Shanks)? The news last night of hundreds killed at the Baptist hospital in Gaza is incredibly distressing, but it is much worse for the people of Gaza. Their fear that there is no place of safety is profound. International law must be upheld, and that means hospitals and civilian lives...

4. Statement by the Minister for Economy: Regional Economic Development (17 Oct 2023)

Luke Fletcher: That's why it's so important that we restore to local authorities their decision-making powers that have been eroded so dramatically in the aftermath of Brexit. I appreciate the fact that Keir Starmer, in a rare acknowledgement of the existence of Wales, has previously committed to providing the Senedd and, by extension, our local authorities, full control over any future post-EU...

1. Questions to the First Minister: Affordable Social Housing (17 Oct 2023)

Janet Finch-Saunders: ...20,000 new low-carbon social homes for rent in the next three years. Given the higher costs associated with these builds, please would you, First Minister, explain how your UK parliamentary Member Keir Starmer mentions that ‘we are the builders’? Yet here in Welsh Labour, we have the building blockers. Wouldn't you agree with me that his statement at conference was misleading to say...

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

Mark Harper: ...on the morning of his speech, which approved that decision, and the Prime Minister announced it shortly afterwards. I noticed that the right hon. and learned Member for Holborn and St Pancras (Keir Starmer) rowed in very quickly, and has not disavowed this decision. He, of course, has long campaigned against HS2, and I suspect that the fact he rowed in so quickly behind it reflects that....

Israel and Gaza (16 Oct 2023)

Keir Starmer: I thank the Prime Minister for the advance copy of his statement and for the updates the Government have provided to Labour Front Benchers over the past few days. Last Saturday, Israel was the victim of terrorism on an unimaginable scale: the senseless murder of men, women, children and even babies; the horrors of hostage taking; music festivals turned to killing fields; innocent Jews...

2. Questions to the Counsel General and Minister for the Constitution: The Barnett Formula (11 Oct 2023)

Mabon ap Gwynfor: ...for a project that will, in truth, enrich London further at the expense of Welsh communities—well, why break 800 years of tradition? In his speech to the Labour conference yesterday, your leader Keir Starmer devoted an entire session to talking about Scotland. He made reference to Northern Ireland twice, but there was no mention at all of Wales in his speech, and when he, Keir Starmer,...

2. Questions to the Counsel General and Minister for the Constitution: Devolution of Justice to Wales (11 Oct 2023)

Jack Sargeant: ..., speaking at the Labour conference, and particularly at the Hillsborough Law Now event yesterday—an extremely important event, I'm sure all Members will agree. Counsel General, I'm proud that Keir Starmer has given his support to introducing a Hillsborough law in the early part of his term, when hopefully an incoming Labour Government will be in Westminster. I'm also proud of his...

4. Debate: 'NHS in 10+ years: An examination of the projected impact of Long-Term Conditions and Risk Factors in Wales (10 Oct 2023)

Baroness Mair Eluned Morgan: I thought it was very interesting to note that, today, Keir Starmer again is following the Welsh health direction, saying that he wants an NHS that prevents illness, not just a sickness service. Well, he is welcome to take a look at our strategy, 'A Healthier Wales'. We've been at it for a few years, and it was good to see that, last week, he also said that he would be introducing a...

1. Questions to the First Minister: Questions Without Notice from the Party Leaders (10 Oct 2023)

Rhun ap Iorwerth: ...all options available, including legal avenues, to challenge the decision to classify HS2 as an England and Wales project. Given the Counsel General's response, could we therefore assume that if Keir Starmer does become Prime Minister, the Labour Government in Wales is also willing to launch a legal challenge against the Labour Government at Westminster?

Scottish Parliament: Two-child Benefit Cap ( 4 Oct 2023)

Shirley-Anne Somerville: ...of the child gains exemption through “special circumstances”—that is, if the child is part of a multiple birth or born as a result of rape. This summer, I was absolutely astonished to hear Keir Starmer confirm that a Labour Government would maintain the Conservatives’ two-child limit and say that there is no reason that the rape clause cannot “operate more fairly.” We also...

1. Questions to the First Minister: Questions Without Notice from the Party Leaders ( 3 Oct 2023)

Rhun ap Iorwerth: buses too—and Plaid Cymru will be leading a debate on buses tomorrow—the money just can't come soon enough. The Tory leader, as I said, has given up on fighting for Wales, but, given that Keir Starmer is also refusing to commit to giving us the consequentials, can I ask what pitch the First Minister has made to him on how transport in Wales could be improved using this money,...

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Parliament Powers ( 3 Oct 2023)

Michelle Thomson: favour of re-entering the EU. No wonder people were too embarrassed to turn up to the Tory conference. The Labour Party branch office in Scotland is no better. “Make Brexit work” says Sir Keir Starmer, in an attempt to woo back red-wall voters. Even the Labour amendment, which can be summarised as saying, “Play nice,” is paltry, although it is good news that Labour agrees to...

Scottish Parliament: Climate Emergency (26 Sep 2023)

Kevin Stewart: ...and Lord Provost of Aberdeen, Barney Crockett, resigned from the party over its policy. He said: “Margaret Thatcher never delivered a more brutal put-down of an industry than that delivered by Keir Starmer”. The Scottish Government is absolutely committed to a just transition and to ensuring that we take workers with us on our journey to net zero. That is why the Scottish Government is...

Scottish Parliament: Delayed Discharge (21 Sep 2023)

Shona Robison: We know that Anas Sarwar is now getting his orders from Keir Starmer, and they are to not promise anything in terms of progressive taxation and to turn his back on raising additional funds. Anas Sarwar should remember that, if we had followed what he seems to be suggesting—the Tory tax policies—we would have £1 billion less for public services in our coffers. [ Interruption. ]

Scottish Parliament: Fair Pay (University of Dundee) (21 Sep 2023)

Shona Robison: ...the same way that other institutions should. We would urge them to get around the table with their union partners to find a resolution. I would say to Mercedes Villalba that what we are seeing from Keir Starmer is a complete retreat from workers’ rights and a U-turn on every commitment on workers’ rights, so perhaps she should have a word with Keir Starmer—although I suspect that she...

Scottish Parliament: European Union Exit (21 Sep 2023)

Clare Adamson: The Conservatives delivered a ruinous Brexit. This week, Keir Starmer said that he would tweak that ruinous Brexit, while ruling out a return to the European single market. He said that his priorities are economic growth and the opportunities and outcomes for young people that have been lost as a result of Brexit. Does the Deputy First Minister agree that the only way to get back the benefits...
