Scottish Parliament: Action on Climate Change (28 Nov 2019)

Nicola Sturgeon: ...Governments across the world and we will continue to do so. I look forward to taking part in the Channel 4 leaders’ debate on climate change this evening. When I was last updated on the debate, Boris Johnson was still running scared of it. I hope that he changes his mind and joins us on the platform tonight.

Scottish Parliament: Post-Brexit Trade Deal (28 Nov 2019)

Nicola Sturgeon: ..., if agreements were done with drug companies, for example, to extend patents, which I believe is mentioned in the paperwork that was leaked yesterday. That is the risk to our health service if Boris Johnson and the Tories get their way. I think that the priority for people in Scotland over the next couple of weeks is to make sure that Boris Johnson does not get his way, we get him out of...

Scottish Parliament: Television Licences (Over-75s) (21 Nov 2019)

Fiona Hyslop: ...informed and entertained and to be treated with empathy and understanding. The UK Government is playing games with welfare and public service broadcasting. On 26 August this year, Prime Minister Boris Johnson said: “The BBC received a settlement that was conditional upon their paying for TV licences for the over-75s. They should cough up.” Now that a general election looms, Boris...

Scottish Parliament: Universal Credit (20 Nov 2019)

Alasdair Allan: ...all that right at some unspecified point in the future. It is time for Labour finally to join the widening consensus that all aspects of the benefits system should be in Scotland’s hands—not in Boris Johnson’s.

Scottish Parliament: Health and Social Care (Investment) (20 Nov 2019)

Alison Johnstone: service. The amendment also recognises a fundamental threat to the sustainability of the national health service: the catastrophe that a hard Brexit would be and the possibility that a Boris Johnson Government would desperately pursue a trade deal with the United States. I will, therefore, support the Government amendment. The hard Brexit that the Tories are pursuing represents one...

Scottish Parliament: Fisheries Negotiations (19 Nov 2019)

Fergus Ewing: ...does nothing to take back control of our waters. If Mr Chapman disagrees, can he read the extract from the agreement where that is agreed to? Given that that does not exist, does he not agree that Boris Johnson has simply kicked the can down the road, and that any negotiation that has not been carried out now may never be carried out, and will be fiercely resisted by the EU under any...

Scottish Parliament: Referendums (14 Nov 2019)

...Carlaw or anybody else is in any doubt about this, but let me be absolutely candid: I support independence for Scotland. I want Scotland to escape a position where our future is imposed on us by Boris Johnson, who is now having his strings pulled by Nigel Farage. The Tory party is now a wholly owned subsidiary of Nigel Farage and the Brexit Party. I do not want that to be Scotland’s...

Scottish Parliament: Diabetes, Heart Disease and Stroke (Over-65s) (14 Nov 2019)

Maureen Watt: The First Minister will be aware that the Home Secretary, Priti Patel, has pledged that the Tories will cut overall immigration and end freedom of movement if Boris Johnson wins—

Scottish Parliament: Brexit (No-deal Planning) (14 Nov 2019)

Keith Brown: As the cabinet secretary will be aware, Tory Government ministers are on the record as ruling out extending the transition period past 2020. Under the terms of Boris Johnson’s deal, if no free-trade agreement is reached by the end of 2020 and no extension is in place, we will, in effect, again face the cliff edge of a hugely disastrous no-deal Brexit, with all the damage to jobs and...

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Products (United States Tariffs) (14 Nov 2019)

Bruce Crawford: ...imposed on an economically weakened UK. It will not have escaped people’s notice that the attack on a number of UK products by the US Government comes from the very Trump Administration that Boris Johnson boasts we will have a post-Brexit trade deal with. President Trump himself has indicated that that will be possible only with a no-deal Brexit, which would mean that the UK Government...

Scottish Parliament: Artificial Intelligence and Data-Driven Technologies (13 Nov 2019)

Patrick Harvie: ...—we can make choices about that. Tom Arthur mentioned deepfakes. Another of the CDEI’s papers is about deepfakes and shallowfakes. In the past few days, members may have seen a video showing Boris Johnson and Jeremy Corbyn endorsing each other for the role of Prime Minister. It is a convincing and compelling piece of work. That took a bit of effort and resource to construct with...

Scottish Parliament: European Union Citizens’ Rights (12 Nov 2019)

Liam McArthur: ...than the way in which successive Tory Governments have sought to use EU nationals in this country as pawns in a wider political game of brinkmanship. Theresa May made no attempt to disguise that. Boris Johnson and colleagues have positively revelled in it. For them, ending freedom of movement is the holy grail, as if removing rights that we currently have is a good thing. Even arguing that...

Scottish Parliament: Austerity (7 Nov 2019)

Shona Robison: ...are fed from food banks, families of European Union citizens are unsure whether they can stay here and businesses and jobs are on the line. Does the First Minister agree that the first words out of Boris Johnson’s mouth as he lands in Scotland today should be, “I’m sorry”?

Scottish Parliament: European Union Regulations (Standards and Protections) (7 Nov 2019)

David Torrance: Boris Johnson wrote to Donald Tusk last month to say that the UK Government wants to move away from the standards and protections that are offered by EU regulations. Does the cabinet secretary agree that that represents a threat to the future of the common frameworks project, given the implications for significant areas of devolved competence, such as environmental protection, regulations on...

Scottish Parliament: Referendums (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (7 Nov 2019)

Michael Russell: ...of democracy—that he is the democrat here and that it is the SNP that is outrageously defeating democracy. At the same time, Libby Brooks, the correspondent for The Guardian who was covering Boris Johnson’s visit, was tweeting this: “Boris Johnson tells reporters in Moray that he will not grant the powers for a second independence ref regardless of whether the SNP wins majority of...

Questions to the Mayor of London — Brexit: Brexit (6 Nov 2019)

Sadiq Khan: ...we have been offered now by this Government is a million miles away from what was promised in 2016. You can go back and look at some of the quotes and arguments raised by prominent Brexiteers, from Boris Johnson [Prime Minister] to Michael Gove [Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster] to Liam Fox [Member of Parliament for North Somerset] to Nigel Farage [Leader, Brexit Party]. None of...

Election of Speaker (4 Nov 2019)

Boris Johnson: I have to signify to the House the pleasure of Her Majesty that the House should present their Speaker this day at 9.35 pm in the House of Peers for Her Majesty’s Royal Approbation.

Brexit: Environmental Regulation - Question (4 Nov 2019)

Baroness Jones of Whitchurch: My Lords, can the Minister explain why the Boris Johnson version of the withdrawal Bill specifically left out the clause—known as the non-regression clause—which guaranteed that we would not fall below current environmental standards? Can he clarify what plans are now in place to reverse that decision and introduce legislation to give legal certainty on that issue? I know that the...

Written Answers — Prime Minister: Prime Minister: Written Questions (4 Nov 2019)

Boris Johnson: I refer the Hon Member to the statement given by my Rt Hon Friend the Attorney General on 25 September 2019 (official report ref). 41B98-D4E9-487F-BE17-D51C6EF870F2/LegalAdviceProrogation

Scottish Parliament: European Union (United Kingdom Departure) (31 Oct 2019)

Michael Russell: ...As I said yesterday, the deal will make Scotland poorer and hit jobs and living standards. It is a worse deal than the one that Theresa May negotiated, and a basic trade agreement of the type that Boris Johnson wants to negotiate will cost each person in Scotland the equivalent of £1,600 compared with the cost of EU membership. Brexit is already having a damaging effect on Scotland. A...
