European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill - Committee (3rd Day) (Continued): Amendment 39 (16 Jan 2020)

Lord Lea of Crondall: ...—I stand to be corrected about the detail of the shopping list for the rest of this year—could be dealt with by the end of this year. Indeed, it is seen in Brussels as simple wishful thinking; Boris Johnson will think of another wheeze in time to keep the show on the road. Instead of “Get Brexit done”, the real question is “Let’s get Brexit real”. At the moment, we assume...

Scottish Parliament: Erasmus Scheme (16 Jan 2020)

Clare Adamson: It is not surprising that Scotland does so well, given that Madame Ecosse—Winnie Ewing—was instrumental in establishing the Erasmus programme. Boris Johnson has claimed that Erasmus will continue as normal. That is cold comfort, given that his party voted against continuing with the scheme during the progress of the European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill. Does the First Minister agree...

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (Continued): Amendment 35 (15 Jan 2020)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: undercut our competitors across the EU, is bound to involve a level playing field of regulations and state aid rules, as the noble Lord, Lord Fox, said. Michel Barnier has repeatedly stated that Boris Johnson’s ambition of a tariff-free, quota-free deal hinges on accepting this, and EU leaders suggest that level-playing-field commitments will be a precondition for the EU to conclude a...

Scottish Parliament: Secondary Education (15 Jan 2020)

Rona Mackay: ...that everything is perfect, and we must constantly monitor and improve on areas where that is necessary and we can. That is what a responsible Government does. A responsible Government does not, as Boris Johnson’s Government did, cut the Erasmus programme, which has helped millions of young people throughout the UK to broaden their education and life skills, and then reinstate it after...

Prime Minister: Engagements (15 Jan 2020)

Boris Johnson: This morning I had meetings with ministerial colleagues and others. In addition to my duties in this House, I shall have further such meetings later today.

Prime Minister: Constitutional Reform (15 Jan 2020)

Boris Johnson: A constitution, democracy and rights commission will be established to examine the broader aspects of the constitution and to develop proposals to restore trust in our institutions and in how our democracy operates. Careful consideration is needed on the composition and focus of the commission, and further announcements will be made in due course.

Prime Minister: Engagements (15 Jan 2020)

Boris Johnson: We will go ahead and, as I said yesterday, I think that a good balance has been struck, in getting Stormont going again, between those who need truth and those who need certainty in the protection of our armed services. I want to reassure the House that nothing in the agreement will stop us going ahead with legislation to ensure that no one who has served in our armed forces suffers vexatious...

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill - Committee (1st Day) (Continued): Amendment 12 (14 Jan 2020)

Lord Tyler: ...the heart of decision making as we develop our approach. I acknowledge that in the past we have perhaps not always acted in that spirit.—[Official Report, Commons, 19/10/19; col. 572.] That was Boris Johnson, speaking last year. He acknowledges the true sovereignty of Parliament. This House, as well as the other place, cannot afford to neglect our own role in preserving that reality.

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 1 (14 Jan 2020)

Lord Greaves: ...a promise made, which very large numbers of the people it affects—European citizens living here—believe has not been, and is not being, carried out in full. Before the referendum, back in 2016, Boris Johnson, Michael Gove and Priti Patel issued a statement. It was not a government Statement, but they are now the Prime Minister, the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster—who has been...

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill - Second Reading (13 Jan 2020)

Lord Lea of Crondall: .... George Orwell would have been proud of the doublethink. Finally, we are told that we have got to fly the union jack at the end of this month. The union jack is a flag that is being torn up by Boris Johnson. The scenario that is increasingly plausible about what could happen in Scotland, which my noble friend Lord Darling touched on, would mean that the St Andrew’s flag would go and we...

Written Answers — Prime Minister: SPAC Nation (13 Jan 2020)

Boris Johnson: I refer the Hon. Member to the contribution given by my Hon. Friend, the Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State at the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (Helen Whately) during the adjournment debate on Thursday 8 January 2020, Official Report, Col.584.

Queen’s Speech - Debate (4th Day) (9 Jan 2020)

Lord Lipsey: ...climate change. The advantage of social care is that it is entirely within our control. It does not have to depend on what other countries do; we can do it ourselves. I was genuinely pleased when Boris Johnson said very soon after the election that he had a fully prepared plan for social care. We have been looking forward to that after five promised Green Papers down the pan. In fact, I...

Scottish Parliament: Digital Connectivity (9 Jan 2020)

Paul Wheelhouse: ...—compared with a 21 per cent increase in the UK. I am aware that the UK Government has, belatedly, woken up to its responsibilities in this area. As part of his leadership campaign last summer, Boris Johnson pledged to deliver full fibre “to every home in the land” by 2025. By the December UK election, that promise had been watered down to a commitment to “roll out gigabit...

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 2) Act 2019 - Motion to Take Note (8 Jan 2020)

Baroness Ludford: ...must stop running away from the false promises that they have made and be honest with the public about what they have in store for them with their hard Brexit plan. It’s about time that Boris Johnson started being honest with our people, rather than hiding the true price of a hard Brexit. What do they have to hide?” I bat that question to the Minister, to answer if he would.

Queen’s Speech - Debate (3rd Day) (8 Jan 2020)

Lord Rogan: ...helped to put something much better in its place on Good Friday of that same year. Fast-forwarding to today and the actions of the latest Conservative Prime Minister to roll off the conveyer belt, Boris Johnson’s decision to renege on his public commitment not to annex Northern Ireland by placing a border in the Irish Sea after Brexit has had a profound impact on the psyche of the loyal...

Scottish Parliament: European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill (8 Jan 2020)

Michael Russell: ...protocol between the Scottish Government and the Scottish Parliament, and I hope that the UK Government—even at this late stage—will recognise the need to be part of that process. Last month, Boris Johnson and his Conservative Party suffered a heavy defeat in Scotland. The Tories lost more than half their MPs and now have barely 10 per cent of Scottish Westminster seats. Their Brexit...

Prime Minister: Engagements (8 Jan 2020)

Boris Johnson: I should begin by saying that, of course, we condemn the attack on Iraqi military bases hosting coalition forces. Iran should not repeat these reckless and dangerous attacks, but must instead pursue urgent de-escalation. I know that the thoughts of the House are also with our friends in Australia, as they tackle the bushfires, and with the families of those killed in the Ukrainian air crash....

Queen’s Speech - Debate (2nd Day) (Continued) (7 Jan 2020)

Lord King of Bridgwater: ...ever larger unless the world works together to agree positive remedies before it is too late. I am helped in this by a very interesting article written 12 years ago by a promising journalist called Boris Johnson, headed “Global over-population is the real issue”; we should forget global warming. In it, he expresses his dismay that, “no world statesmen have the guts to treat the issue...
