Arrangement of Business - Announcement (24 Jul 2019)

Baroness Smith of Basildon: ...—probably. I can tell him that I had a letter from one of the candidates in the Conservative Party leadership election who was not very happy about the idea of a Joint Committee, but that was Jeremy Hunt and he lost, so I was rather hoping that the new Prime Minister might be a little more sympathetic. In his final hours as Chief Whip, might the noble Lord find the opportunity to take...

Situation in the Gulf (22 Jul 2019)

Jeremy Hunt: First of all, those on the Government Benches wholeheartedly endorse what the shadow Minister said about the shadow Foreign Secretary, whom we wish every success in having a rapid recovery after her unfortunate bicycle accident. I also thank him for his generous comments about my time as Foreign Secretary—without any sting in the tail. I particularly want to thank him for carefully...

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Persecution of Christians across the Globe Independent Review (19 Jul 2019)

Jeremy Hunt: We are grateful to the Bishop for setting out ambitious recommendations.

Questions to the Mayor of London — Deal or No Deal: Deal or No Deal (19 Jul 2019)

Peter Whittle: I note that on 4 July 2019 you Tweeted to your followers: ‘The damage that Boris Johnson and Jeremy Hunt seem willing to do to our economy, in pursuit of power, looks limitless. The refusal to take no-deal off the table is already creating uncertainty, denting business confidence and damaging our economy.’1 What empirical evidence (apart from what I believe to be scare mongering from HM...

Written Ministerial Statements — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: UK Support and Funding for International Criminal Justice (17 Jul 2019)

Jeremy Hunt: Today we mark the Day of International Criminal Justice, which provides an opportunity to update Parliament on the UK’s support for the principles and institutions of international justice in the previous calendar year.

Nuclear Weapons (International Relations Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (16 Jul 2019)

Lord Hannay of Chiswick: ...depositary states, needs to use as imaginative and constructive an approach as possible. I wonder whether either of the two aspirants to be Prime Minister know any better than the right honourable Jeremy Hunt revealed yesterday: I rather doubt it. The second conclusion is that it is arguably clear that the nuclear non-proliferation treaty, for all its imperfections and incompleteness, has...

Religious Persecution - Motion to Take Note (11 Jul 2019)

Lord Collins of Highbury: ...findings and most of its recommendations. However, like the noble Baroness, Lady Berridge, I too have concerns and I hope that the Government will look at it in depth. I read in the Guardian that Jeremy Hunt said at the press launch that he would enact all the recommendations if he became Prime Minister. In case that does not happen, I would be grateful if the Minister indicated when she...

Economic Environment: Growth and Jobs - Motion to Take Note (11 Jul 2019)

Baroness Kramer: ...-08, not because taxes have been cut. Unfortunately, part of the money has come in because business has been holding back on investment, as we have discussed. The work done by the IFS in looking at Jeremy Hunt’s proposal that we should cut corporation tax to 12.5% makes a nonsense of any suggestion that that kind of tax cut repays itself. If we are to repair public services and drive the...

UK’s Ambassador to the USA - Statement (8 Jul 2019)

Baroness Northover: ...Kim Darroch was an unsuitable ambassador to the US because he was not a Trump supporter. I assume that he would send a mini Putin to Russia and a mini Assad to Syria. Will the Minister clarify what Jeremy Hunt is reported as saying: namely, that diptels are simply the personal view of the ambassador and not the position of the Government? Surely he recognises that we require from members...

Written Ministerial Statements — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Independent Review of Foreign and Commonwealth Office support for persecuted Christians (8 Jul 2019)

Jeremy Hunt: I have today deposited in the libraries of both Houses of Parliament the Independent Review of Foreign and Commonwealth Office support for persecuted Christians, conducted by the Anglican Bishop of Truro, the Right Reverend Philip Mounstephen.

NHS: Future UK Trade Deals - Motion to Take Note (4 Jul 2019)

Baroness Pitkeathley: ...interventions than would have been necessary if the care services had been available earlier. Then there is difficulty in discharging them because social care services are not available—even Jeremy Hunt has admitted that cuts in social services imposed by his Government went too far—or are inadequate, leading to another admission to hospital and the whole sorry cycle starts all over...

Brexit: Appointment of Joint Committee - Motion to Agree (3 Jul 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: .... Car manufacturing has already fallen over each of the past 12 months, its trade body warning us that a no-deal Brexit would be a “knockout blow”, while Japan’s Foreign Minister urges Messrs Hunt and Johnson to avoid no deal, as Japanese car operations, “may not be able to continue”. Jeremy Hunt says that businesses going bust is “a price worth paying”, but Make UK,...

National Health Service: Bullying - Question (3 Jul 2019)

Lord Hunt of Kings Heath: Does what the Minister suggests apply to the actions of Ministers? She will recall, from when he was Secretary of State, Mr Jeremy Hunt’s practice of insisting on a weekly Monday morning meeting with the key national regulators, at which the sacking of chief executive officers was often discussed. Bullying starts at the top. If Ministers take a bullying attitude towards the NHS, they can...

Post-18 Education and Funding Review - Motion to Take Note (2 Jul 2019)

Baroness Deech: ...with what subjects universities teach? Philosophers can become bankers, or someone as valuable to society as the late Baroness Warnock; economics at Oxford has brought us the right honourable Jeremy Hunt; classicists become bankers —or the right honourable Boris Johnson; lawyers become clergymen; and ballet dancers, dance being an academic subject, include the noble and multi-talented...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Suicide: North West (28 Jun 2019)

Seema Kennedy: ...published in October 2018 and is available at the following link: https://sites.manchester.ac.uk/ncish/reports/ In January 2018, the former Secretary of State for Health and Social Care (Rt. hon. Jeremy Hunt MP) announced a zero suicide ambition for the National Health Service, starting with mental health inpatients. Every NHS mental health provider was required to put in place a zero...

Questions to the Mayor of London — Collaboration: Collaboration (28 Jun 2019)

Sadiq Khan: ...and housing. You will have seen in my draft London Plan the expectation is half of the homes on this surplus public land are to be genuinely affordable, and the good news is, through [The Rt Hon] Jeremy Hunt [MP, former Secretary of State for Health and Social Care] devolving some of the NHS’s state stuff to us, we are working with other parts of the public sector to do more. We are...

Scottish Parliament: European Digital Single Market (27 Jun 2019)

Kate Forbes: ...the Scottish Government has put forward a comprehensive set of positions for us to remain part of the digital single market. We have engaged with Governments across EU member states and, despite Jeremy Hunt’s recent interventions, we will continue to engage strategically with our European partners. As Scots head off on holiday to EU countries—as perhaps some members in the chamber will...

Scottish Parliament: Monklands Hospital (Closure) (27 Jun 2019)

Keith Brown: ...the domestic disturbance in the Boris Johnson flat have now had to move out and require security assistance, and in light of the fact that the latest victim of Ruth Davidson’s endorsement, Jeremy Hunt, has admitted that the Tory Government, in contrast to the SNP Government in Scotland, has gone far too far in cutting police numbers, does the First Minister agree that the Tories in the...

Scottish Parliament: Citizens Assembly of Scotland (26 Jun 2019)

Michael Russell: ...are now vying to replace her are indulging in the very same fictions and fantasies. Boris Johnson is determined to keep a no-deal exit from the EU, regardless of the consequences, on the table, and Jeremy Hunt insists that he can secure changes to the Irish backstop. However, none of the solutions that is being offered by this tiresome twosome is in any way real. All of them have been...
