Prime Minister: Engagements (15 Nov 2023)

Keir Starmer: The Prime Minister obviously thinks so little of his own MPs that he has had to peel David Cameron away from his seven-year exile in a shepherd’s hut and make him Foreign Secretary. A few months ago, the Intelligence and Security Committee said that the now Foreign Secretary’s role in a Chinese investment fund may have been—these are its words— “engineered by the Chinese state”. I...

1. Questions to the First Minister: Questions Without Notice from the Party Leaders (14 Nov 2023)

Rhun ap Iorwerth: I'm glad that the First Minister has recognised my frustration at Keir Starmer. I think there's real disillusionment at Keir Starmer's Government before it's even been formed. The truth of the matter is that whilst he may pick away at the five-point plan that was put forward by Plaid Cymru, there's a 29-point plan put forward by the expert group on the cost-of-living crisis that the Welsh...

Scottish Parliament: Migration to Scotland: Scottish Government Proposals (14 Nov 2023)

Kaukab Stewart: ...bitterly, I see no space for that to change under the current system. Indeed, Labour’s invention of the “hostile environment” immigration system has simply been carried on by the Tories. Keir Starmer has not indicated any substantial break from what the Tories have inflicted or what they threaten to do. I know that many members are deeply anxious about tomorrow’s Supreme Court...

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

Lord Horam: ...say that 50,000 more immigrants will give him an extra 0.1% growth in GDP—at the moment, he needs all the fractions he can get. Even the Labour Party now subscribes to this orthodoxy. Sir Keir Starmer has said that Labour will build 1.5 million houses within the Parliament if it is elected and has clearly indicated that it will be more relaxed about immigration. The problem with this...

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

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: ...new places, a motivated, well-trained workforce for high standards, and more accessible childcare; that will happen under Labour’s plans. In Breaking Down the Barriers to Opportunity, Keir Starmer set out clearly our fifth mission in government: breaking down the barriers to opportunity for every child, at every stage, and shattering the class ceiling. We will track this progress through...

Scottish Parliament: Learning Estate Investment Programme (Funding) (South Scotland) ( 9 Nov 2023)

Jenny Gilruth: ...to the education budget to fund extra schools? That is the reality of the situation that we face, thanks to an austerity agenda brought in by the Tories, and now supported whole-heartedly by Keir Starmer and the Labour Party.

Scottish Parliament: Fair Work in a Wellbeing Economy ( 9 Nov 2023)

Maggie Chapman: ..., the right to escape persecution, children’s right to life and workers’ right to strike. The Overton window of acceptable views is, with every week, moving further rightwards, with Sir Keir Starmer rushing after it as fast as his legs will carry him, it seems. However, we have a different perspective in Scotland; a different tradition that we share as trade unionists, whether or not...

King’s Speech - Debate (2nd Day) ( 8 Nov 2023)

Lord Bew: ...which set the framework for devolution throughout the United Kingdom, in Balmoral in Belfast in the autumn of 1997. There, he declared firmly that he was not neutral on the union, as in effect Keir Starmer has done in some recent pronouncements. But this is not a blank cheque. What Mr Blair said there is that his support for the union was based on power-sharing devolution plus an Irish...

Breaking Down Barriers to Opportunity ( 8 Nov 2023)

Ruth Jones: ...crisis, and the people of Newport West with very little faith in this UK Government. The Leader of the Opposition, my right hon. and learned Friend the Member for Holborn and St Pancras (Keir Starmer), has set out clearly the five missions that drive us. Of the five, three are especially relevant to Newport West. We will take back our streets from gangs, drug dealers and fly-tippers, with...

5. Debate on the Economy, Trade and Rural Affairs Committee Report, 'Post-EU regional development funding' ( 8 Nov 2023)

Luke Fletcher: ...by post-Brexit Governments, and which, according to recent polling, has, if anything, made the union less secure.  Finally, Dirprwy Lywydd—and this is for the Minister—we are told that a Keir Starmer-led UK Labour Government would return the power to make funding decisions under the SPF to Wales. So, taking this at its face value, it's welcome. But what does this mean in practice?...

1. Questions to the Minister for Finance and Local Government: UK Public Expenditure ( 8 Nov 2023)

Gareth Davies: ...hours in the inaugural King’s Speech from the UK Conservative Prime Minister, Rishi Sunak, is bold leadership in tackling some of the biggest issues facing the UK as a whole in 2023. And all Keir Starmer, the Labour Party in Wales and Plaid Cymru can do is continue to snipe from the sidelines while the Conservatives are delivering and getting on with the job. And for every £1 spent in...

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

Baroness Smith of Basildon: ...we understand the scale of the change needed for the country. In the same way as we had the ambition to change our party, we have the ambition to change our country. In the other place today, Keir Starmer sets out his commitment to “lead a dynamic, mission-driven Government that will get Britain building and turbocharge renewal in every community” across the country. So it is partly...

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

Keir Starmer: Before I turn to the Humble Address, I am sure the whole House will join me in paying tribute to His Majesty the King on the occasion of his first Gracious Speech as our sovereign. Of course, he gave the speech last year, and has for some time enjoyed the best view in the House on how it should be done. None the less, this is a new chapter for him and our country, so we pay tribute to him. I...

1. Questions to the First Minister: Questions Without Notice from the Party Leaders ( 7 Nov 2023)

Rhun ap Iorwerth: ...Labour politician in these islands, is unable to persuade his party leader at Westminster to do the right thing on this and other issues that are around fairness for Wales. Now, back in March, Keir Starmer told Labour members that it was time for Wales to 'take back control'. That was in relation specifically to EU funding replacement, but surely the same principle would apply to another...

Transport: Topical Questions (26 Oct 2023)

Mark Harper: ...will benefit more people in more places more quickly. I know this must be a difficult time for the hon. Lady as her party leader, the right hon. and learned Member for Holborn and St Pancras (Keir Starmer), casts her views aside, admitting that the Prime Minister was right and saying that he would follow his lead. I can only thank the right hon. and learned Member—I can only think he...

7. Plaid Cymru Debate: Transport for Wales (25 Oct 2023)

Delyth Jewell: ...outlook of how Wales will fare from this under a Labour-led UK Government is somewhat cloudy. While the First Minister here has supported calls for HS2 to be reclassified as 'England only', Keir Starmer has said that he is not going to make a commitment like that this side of the election. Now, this lack of commitment for our nation is robbing Wales of billions of pounds' worth of funding,...

Renewable Energy Providers: Planning Considerations — [Siobhain McDonagh in the Chair] (25 Oct 2023)

Siobhan Baillie: ..., which I say with the greatest respect, because he looks very carefully at issues, about his leader’s position on planning. The right hon. and learned Member for Holborn and St Pancras (Keir Starmer) says that he will override local views to get planning applications through—I appreciate he was talking about homes rather than renewables—but how does that work with local people’s...

Prime Minister: Engagements (25 Oct 2023)

Keir Starmer: I join the Prime Minister in his comments about all those affected by the storms. I start by welcoming my hon. Friend the new Member for Mid Bedfordshire (Alistair Strathern)—the first Labour MP ever to represent those beautiful towns and villages. He defied the odds, history and of course the fantasy Lib Dem bar charts. I also welcome my hon. Friend the new Member for Tamworth (Sarah...

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

Lord Collins of Highbury: ...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 with images...
