7. Welsh Conservatives Debate: UK Government budget (13 Mar 2024)

Peter Fox: ...the Conservatives have a long-term plan for the whole of the United Kingdom, while Labour still continue to flip-flop and have no clear strategy as to how to handle the economy. And if, as Keir Starmer first said before he changed his mind, Wales is Labour's blueprint for success, then the United Kingdom and Wales are in for a shock if Labour win the next election. Diolch, Llywydd.

National Insurance Contributions (Reduction in Rates) (No.2) Bill (13 Mar 2024)

David Simmonds: ...number of points that have been raised about the use of national insurance contributions. We heard the Leader of the Opposition, the right hon. and learned Member for Holborn and St Pancras (Keir Starmer), asserting very clearly at the Dispatch Box in Prime Minister’s questions earlier that a reduction of national insurance meant a cut in the budget for the NHS. It is worth reflecting...

Scottish Parliament: Scotland’s Economy (13 Mar 2024)

Ivan McKee: front of me—with interest, because I was looking for ideas and we can always learn from others. It runs to about 30 pages, 10 of which are photographs. Many of them are of Anas Sarwar and Keir Starmer staring wistfully into the middle distance. I do not quite know what they are contemplating. To be honest, the document is pretty thin gruel. I will come to some of the specifics as I go...

Prime Minister: Engagements (13 Mar 2024)

Keir Starmer: May I welcome the legislation on the Post Office scandal? Mr Speaker, this week we lost the formidable Tommy McAvoy, who served his hometown of Rutherglen and the Labour Government with loyalty and good humour. We send our deepest sympathies to his wife, Eleanor, and their family. We also learnt that the right hon. Member for Maidenhead (Mrs May) will be taking her well-deserved retirement....

2. Business Statement and Announcement (12 Mar 2024)

Lesley Griffiths: Well, Keir Starmer isn't a representative here, and you will have heard the Deputy Minister for Arts, Sport and Tourism on this subject before. Nothing has changed.

1. Questions to the First Minister: Questions Without Notice from the Party Leaders (12 Mar 2024)

Rhun ap Iorwerth: ...will rightly be asked by the COVID inquiry itself. The Times Radio interview that I referred to earlier has been revealing in contexts other than just COVID. Speaking of the UK Labour leader, Keir Starmer, the First Minister said, 'If I ever need to speak to him, I send a text and within an hour we're on the phone, speaking.' So, on Sunday, when the would-be Labour Chancellor, Rachel...

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (11 Mar 2024)

Thangam Debbonaire: ...them that there were exciting well-paid jobs on their doorstep and beyond and to make them feel part of this. Today my right hon. and learned Friend the Member for Holborn and St Pancras (Keir Starmer) showed that we will put this into practice at school with subjects such as music, art, sport and drama, which help to build confidence, communication skills, critical thinking, problem...

Income Tax (Charge) ( 6 Mar 2024)

Keir Starmer: There we have it: the last desperate act of a party that has failed—Britain in recession, the national credit card maxed out and, despite the measures today, the highest tax burden for 70 years. This is the first Parliament since records began to see living standards fall, as confirmed by the Budget today. That is the Conservatives’ record, and it is still their record—give with one...

Scottish Parliament: Windfall Tax (Oil and Gas Companies) ( 6 Mar 2024)

Jackie Dunbar: crisis, what assessment has been made of the potential long-term impact on jobs and on folk’s energy bills of Labour’s aggressive windfall tax plans for the North Sea, coupled with Keir Starmer abandoning his £28 billion green investment pledge?

Prime Minister: Engagements ( 6 Mar 2024)

Keir Starmer: Three years ago, Sarah Everard was walking home when she was abducted and murdered by a serving police officer who should have been trusted to keep her safe. As a father, I cannot imagine the pain her parents, her family and her friends are going through in this difficult anniversary week. Lady Angiolini’s report exposes the appalling failure in police vetting and in misconduct processes,...

Foreign Affairs - Motion to Take Note ( 5 Mar 2024)

Baroness Smith of Basildon: ...across the whole of Europe and beyond. I was honoured to briefly meet President Zelensky when he visited Parliament —his leadership is inspirational. We all condemn the illegal invasion. Keir Starmer has been clear that, if we are in government later this year, we will stand with Ukraine—because Britain and this Parliament stand with Ukraine. Months ago, we called for legislation to...

5. Debate: The Local Government Settlement 2024-25 ( 5 Mar 2024)

Peredur Owen Griffiths: out the inaction and silence of their own UK party leader, because while the neglect of Wales by the current UK Government has been well established for some time, it's also apparent that Keir Starmer's Government-in-waiting is offering nothing but the same. I've heard the First Minister claim on several occasions that a change of Government at Westminster will deliver the investment...

Written Answers — Cabinet Office: Keir Starmer ( 5 Mar 2024)

Andrew Gwynne: To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office, whether government resources have been used for research on the Leader of the Opposition.

Scottish Parliament: Scotland’s Place in the World ( 5 Mar 2024)

Ross Greer: .... I am confused by Scottish Labour’s position on that point. The last that I remember, its party conference voted for nuclear disarmament. Has that conference vote been overridden or has Keir Starmer simply informed the Scottish Labour Party that it now has a different policy because he has decided so? Greens believe in co-operation based on common values. We would model an independent...

Scottish Parliament: Temporary Accommodation (Glasgow) (29 Feb 2024)

...housing payments in 2024-25, which is an increase of more than £6 million on this financial year. It also includes £74 million to mitigate the bedroom tax, which is something that Sir Keir Starmer wants to retain. Independent analysis by Crisis shows that austerity-driven policies, including the two-child limit, are undoubtedly driving up homelessness right across the country. I say to...

7. Plaid Cymru Debate: Bovine TB (28 Feb 2024)

Rhun ap Iorwerth: ...over biodiversity and TB back to Westminster—it really, really doesn't help, apart from the fact, I'm not sure if you've seen the polls recently, you're handing those powers back to Sir Keir Starmer. But, seriously, it does not help, and I was so pleased to hear Samuel Kurtz talking about how, in relation to SFS, he believes that we are a nation that is nimble enough and has the drive to...

Media Bill - Second Reading: Amendment to the Motion (28 Feb 2024)

Lord Lipsey: say that my party voted against this on Report in the Commons—and I am very pleased to say that the Tory, George Eustice, voted with us, as he has been a very coherent critic. I hope that a Starmer Government will start at the beginning, implementing press reform as outlined by Leveson and reinstating Clause 40. This year is the 100th anniversary of the election in which Labour first...

Prime Minister: Engagements (28 Feb 2024)

Keir Starmer: May I join the Prime Minister in his remarks about Lord Cormack and Ronnie Campbell? Tory MPs spent last week claiming that Britain is run by a shadowy cabal made up of activists, the deep state and, most chillingly of all, the Financial Times. At what point did his party give up on governing and become the political wing of the Flat Earth Society?

Scottish Parliament: Budget (Scotland) (No 3) Bill (27 Feb 2024)

Stuart McMillan: ...year budget that will implement a council tax freeze, keeping more money in my constituents’ pockets. It is interesting that Inverclyde Labour is proposing a two-year budget, because, if Sir Keir Starmer wins the next general election, it would surely expect him to give Scotland more money. However, Labour clearly does not believe that that will happen, and we have heard nothing about...

Scottish Parliament: Oil and Gas Industry (Profits) (22 Feb 2024)

...-east so that they can build new nuclear power plants in England. We will not allow that. We will not stand for it. We will stand up for the north-east. Anas Sarwar cannot even stand up to Keir Starmer.
