Prime Minister: Engagements (12 Feb 2020)

Boris Johnson: I think the whole country would agree that, while I cannot comment on individual cases, it is entirely right that foreign national offenders should be deported from this country in accordance with the law.

Fisheries Bill [HL] - Second Reading (11 Feb 2020)

Viscount Hanworth: ...was granted to the other European nations. The situation was worsened by the severe contemporaneous decline in fish stocks on account of the overfishing. Now, in the words of our Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, Britain will “take back control” and have full jurisdiction over its “spectacular marine wealth”. He has asserted that: “We will make sure we don’t trade away Britain’s...

Transport Infrastructure (11 Feb 2020)

Boris Johnson: I thought the right hon. Member for Islington North (Jeremy Corbyn) made a manful attempt to conceal his fundamental agreement with what we are doing. He raised some interesting points. We are actually doing a transport revolution across the whole of the south-west, not only by investing in the sea wall at Dawlish, on the railways, but by upgrading the roads, including the A303 through the...

Extension of Franchise (House of Lords) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (7 Feb 2020)

Lord Naseby: ...and Wales, an appellate panel of the Court of Session in Edinburgh, and the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom could not agree on the legality of the use of royal powers, or the relevance of Boris Johnson’s motives, demonstrated how hard consensus is on constitutional matters involving the Crown, once a political crisis requires them to be scrutinised.” Well, I would suggest to...

Climate Change - Motion to Take Note (6 Feb 2020)

Lord Browne of Ladyton: ...climate change being a pressing existential threat, leaders have so far preferred a series of long-term grand targets and few, if any, of the grand policies needed to achieve them. On Tuesday, Boris Johnson revealed why. The Prime Minister, like many other leaders, believes that technological advances will do the job for him. He is, in his own words, a self-confessed techno-optimist. It is...

Scottish Parliament: Environmental Sustainability (Farming) (6 Feb 2020)

Ruth Maguire: I thank the minister for that very full answer. The minister will be aware that Boris Johnson has made it clear several times that he intends to allow genetically modified crops to be grown in England. What consultation has there been with the Scottish Government on that? Will the minister provide reassurance to concerned citizens about the Scottish Government’s position on GM crop cultivation?

Scottish Parliament: Budget 2020-21 (6 Feb 2020)

Kate Forbes: ...continues to bite. Just last week, there were widespread reports that all UK Government departments were being ordered to identify savings of 5 per cent. That order was issued by none other than Boris Johnson and Sajid Javid. It seems that old habits die hard for the Tories. If the UK Government does not live up to its promises, we will have to take the unprecedented step of returning to...

Wales: European Structural Funds - Question for Short Debate (5 Feb 2020)

Lord Griffiths of Burry Port: ...Not a penny less, not a power lost”: that has been the Government’s pledge and the promise made by many leave campaigners in the run-up to the 2016 referendum who now hold integral roles in the Boris Johnson Government—although whether they will after tomorrow is anybody’s guess. We will just have to wait for that one. It is vital that the Government should keep that pledge, and I...

Rail Services: Maidenhead, Twyford and Branch Lines — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (5 Feb 2020)

Theresa May: ...say, “We want to remove the mainline services. You can just be part of a London metro service.” My concern was exacerbated when my right hon. Friend the Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson), when Mayor of London, suggested that the stations in my constituency should come under the complete remit of Transport for London, as part of the London metro services. I rejected...

Scottish Parliament: COP26 (Global South) (5 Feb 2020)

Bill Kidd: I am sure that we all welcome the First Minister’s tweet yesterday in which she made clear her intention to make COP26 a success. Nonetheless, does the cabinet secretary agree that Boris Johnson’s reported hostility to the role of the Scottish Government in co-hosting this global event is counterproductive, particularly when tackling climate change requires the collaboration of all...

Scottish Parliament: Tax and Public Spending (5 Feb 2020)

Ruth Maguire: ...for public services. It wants millions of pounds of investment while wanting to slash taxes for Scotland’s highest earners. Both leadership candidates have outlined their plans, which mirror Boris Johnson’s tax regime at Westminster. The Institute for Public Policy Research Scotland argues that those plans would cost Scotland more than £1 billion across four years and the think tank...

Prime Minister: Engagements (5 Feb 2020)

Boris Johnson: The whole House will want to pay tribute to the police and all the emergency services for their brave response to the terrorist incident in Streatham on Sunday. That appalling incident makes plain the case for immediate action, and we will shortly introduce emergency legislation to ensure that we do everything to protect the public. This morning I had meetings with ministerial colleagues and...

Terrorism: Contest Strategy - Question for Short Debate (3 Feb 2020)

Lord Harris of Haringey: ..., we will improve the safety and security of public venues.” Brandon Lewis, the Security Minister, was reported as saying as recently as 12 January, following a meeting with Figen Murray, that Boris Johnson was “100% behind” the proposed reforms. We have been promised, and we heard it again today, new counterterrorism legislation within 100 days of the new Parliament sitting, but in...

Defence, Diplomacy and Development Policy - Motion to Take Note (30 Jan 2020)

Baroness Wheeler: ...26, the UK must begin a new chapter in climate diplomacy and show real leadership to save our planet, not least by dedicating sufficient diplomatic resources to make the summit a success. During Boris Johnson’s reign as Foreign Secretary, the FCO cut climate staff by 25%. What action are the Government taking to ensure that the summit will have the diplomatic resources it needs to ensure...

European Union: Trading Arrangements - Question (30 Jan 2020)

Lord Wallace of Saltaire: My Lords, at the time of the referendum, Boris Johnson, now our Prime Minister, assured voters that frictionless trade would continue. That has now been completely forgotten, and he has said recently that we have to accept that there will be barriers to trade as part of what we have to get used to. Is the Minister’s commitment on dynamic alignment the same sort of possibly short-term...
