BBC and Public Service Broadcasting - Motion to Take Note (5 Mar 2020)

Baroness Bakewell: ...channels have been set up over the past decade. Dominic Cummings went on to run the Vote Leave campaign in the 2016 referendum. Since the 2019 election, he has been chief adviser to Prime Minister Boris Johnson in No. 10 Downing Street. Given that the Government have already implemented his recommended policy of refusing to engage with the BBC’s “Today” programme, will the Minister...

Written Ministerial Statements — Prime Minister: Annual Report of the Investigatory Powers Commissioner (5 Mar 2020)

Boris Johnson: I have today laid before both Houses a copy of the annual report of the Investigatory Powers Commissioner. The report was submitted by the new Commissioner, Sir Brian Leveson, but covers the year 2018 and was drafted by Sir Brian’s predecessor, Lord Justice Fulford. Overall, this report demonstrates that the security and intelligence agencies, law enforcement agencies and other relevant...

Scottish Parliament: United Kingdom Government’s Approach to Negotiations with the European Union (4 Mar 2020)

Michael Russell: ...of the crown dependencies, such as Jersey and Guernsey, while completely rejecting any need for a similar approach to the ancient nation of Scotland. The Scottish Government does not believe that Boris Johnson has any mandate, in any part of the UK, for a form of Brexit that was regarded as being on the lunatic fringe of politics even during the June 2016 referendum. That form of Brexit,...

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Rate Resolution (4 Mar 2020)

George Adam: No. I have heard enough of Dean Lockhart’s nonsense. In these uncertain times, when we face increased Tory austerity and a lack of clarity from Boris Johnson and his cronies at Westminster, it is a relief to many Scots in my constituency—and, I am sure, to many others across the nation—to know that they will be treated fairly by their Government here in Scotland. Despite the suggestions...

Prime Minister: Engagements (4 Mar 2020)

Boris Johnson: It is now two years to the day since a chemical weapon was deployed by Russian military intelligence on the streets of Salisbury. All our thoughts remain with those affected and their families and loved ones. We will continue to seek justice for them. I am pleased to say that, two years on, Salisbury is back on its feet, focused firmly on the future and welcoming visitors with open arms. I am...

UK-US Trade Deal Negotiating Objectives - Statement (2 Mar 2020)

Lord Fox: with the United States? We could have a deal with the United States but at the expense of a meaningful FTA with the EU, or perhaps vice versa. I am interested to know the Government’s view on Boris Johnson’s “Cake and eat it” strategy. Can the Minister explain how that works in terms of regulatory alignment? And what is this for? As the noble Lord, Lord Stevenson, said, in...

NHS Funding Bill (Money Bill) - Second Reading (and remaining stages) (26 Feb 2020)

Baroness Thornton: ...that we have seen from the Conservatives over the past few years, the NHS Funding Bill, all stages of which will be debated on your Lordships’ House today, is rather strange. We know that Boris Johnson, the Prime Minister, struggles to trust himself to carry out the things that he promised before and during the general election. In this case, it is the promise to increase NHS funding by...

Personal Statement (26 Feb 2020)

Boris Johnson: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. Would it be in order for me to thank my right hon. Friend for the grace with which he has just spoken and his immense service to this country in several Departments, and to remind him that he has friends and admirers on all sides of the House of Commons?

Government Support for Business (26 Feb 2020)

Nadhim Zahawi: clearly incredibly high. If the subs bench is of this quality, it keeps Ministers on their toes to keep performing. That is one great outcome of the general election where the Prime Minister Boris Johnson led us to that wonderful victory. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Arundel and South Downs on securing this debate. I assure the House that the Government are committed to...

Prime Minister: Engagements (26 Feb 2020)

Boris Johnson: The whole House will want to join me in extending our condolences to the families and friends of those who sadly lost their lives as a result of Storm Ciara and Storm Dennis.

This morning I had...

Written Ministerial Statements — Prime Minister: Integrated Review of Security, Defence, Development and Foreign Policy (26 Feb 2020)

We need to grasp the opportunities of the next decade and deliver upon the Government’s priorities. This is a defining moment...

Scottish Parliament: Customs Checks (20 Feb 2020)

Michael Russell: ...ahead of an independence referendum. The Scottish Government does not wish to erect borders. The United Kingdom Government wishes to erect borders, by pursuing a hard Brexit. That is precisely what Boris Johnson is now doing.

Written Answers — Prime Minister: Climate Change (14 Feb 2020)

Boris Johnson: I refer the Hon. Member to the answer I gave to the Hon. Member the Member for Oxford East on 7 January 2020, UIN 224. tions-answers-statements/written-question/Commons/2019-12-19 /224/

Written Answers — Prime Minister: UK Relations With EU: Sustainable Development (14 Feb 2020)

Boris Johnson: The written ministerial statement sets out the Government’s proposed approach to the negotiations with the EU about our future relationship. Leaving the EU does not change our world-leading ambitions on the environment. We have a long history of environmental protection which predates membership of the EU, and we will safeguard and improve on this record. The UK Government is committed to...

Questions to the Mayor of London — Empty Homes in London: Empty Homes in London (12 Feb 2020)

Len Duvall: ...of London): Absolutely. You referred to, rightly so, the previous Mayor’s London Finance Commission report, and I commissioned another London Finance Commission report with the same team that Boris Johnson [MP] used. We need far more devolution, fiscal devolution as well, but also I trust councils ‑ you mentioned your council ‑ who know their communities far better. Definitions...

Prime Minister: Engagements (12 Feb 2020)

Boris Johnson: The whole House will want to join me in sending our deepest sympathies to all those affected by the weekend’s flooding. My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government has announced the activation of the Government’s emergency Bellwin scheme to provide financial support for qualifying affected areas in the north of England, and we continue to work...

Prime Minister: Security, Defence and Foreign Policy Review (12 Feb 2020)

Prime Minister: Engagements (12 Feb 2020)
