Results 1–20 of 3000 for starmer

Prime Minister: Engagements (19 Apr 2023)

Keir Starmer: ..., those on the Benches opposite were my greatest supporters. In 2013, the Home Affairs Committee said: “ We would…like to commend the work of the Director for Public Prosecution, Keir Starmer… Mr Starmer has striven to improve the treatment of…sexual assault”. The Committee goes on to say—[Interruption.]

Scottish Parliament: First Minister’s Question Time: Bute House Agreement (25 Apr 2024)

Humza Yousaf: ...when it comes to his principles. Anas Sarwar described lifting the cap on bankers’ bonuses, when the Tories did it, as “economically illiterate” and morally repugnant; however, when Keir Starmer does it, Anas Sarwar, like a good boy, falls into line. Anas Sarwar used to oppose the two-child limit; he now supports Keir Starmer in retaining it. Anas Sarwar used to believe in...

Scottish Parliament: Interest Rates (11 May 2023)

...Governments for ever, and the way that we do that is, of course, by voting for independence. We do not want to replace Tory with Tory-lite or with a pale imitation of the Tories. We know that Keir Starmer is lurching to the right. The Labour Party is little more than a Conservative tribute act. Just last week, Labour committed to keeping the Tories’ anti-protest legislation in place. On...

2. Questions to the Counsel General and Minister for the Constitution: The Barnett Formula (11 Oct 2023)

Mabon ap Gwynfor: ...a project that will, in truth, enrich London further at the expense of Welsh communities—well, why break 800 years of tradition? In his speech to the Labour conference yesterday, your leader Keir Starmer devoted an entire session to talking about Scotland. He made reference to Northern Ireland twice, but there was no mention at all of Wales in his speech, and when he, Keir Starmer, has...

Public Bill Committee: Terrorism Prevention and Investigation Measures Bill: Examination of Witnesses (21 Jun 2011)

Keir Starmer: I am Keir Starmer, Director of Public Prosecutions.

Public Bill Committee: Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders bill: Examination of Witness (12 Jul 2011)

Keir Starmer: Keir Starmer, Director of Public Prosecutions.

Prime Minister: Engagements (22 Jul 2020)

Lindsay Hoyle: I am going to bring Keir Starmer back for one more question. Keir Starmer.

1. Questions to the First Minister: Questions Without Notice from the Party Leaders ( 2 Mar 2021)

Andrew RT Davies: Thank you, Presiding Officer. Good afternoon, First Minister. When campaigning for the Labour leadership, Keir Starmer pledged to reverse the Tory cuts in corporation tax and said there'd be no stepping back from Labour's core principles. This week, Keir Starmer said he opposes a rise in corporation tax. Which position do you support, First Minister?

Scottish Parliament: Equality within the 2023-24 Programme for Government ( 6 Sep 2023)

Shirley-Anne Somerville: Given that Keir Starmer has said that he and Anas Sarwar are “‘welded’ together on key issues” and that the Labour Party promotes change, will Ms Mochan explain how Keir Starmer intends to make the rape clause be implemented “more fairly”? What does that mean?

1. Questions to the First Minister: The UK General Election (11 Jun 2024)

Joel James: ...First Minister, every UK Government has been defeated due to its economic record, which has left us with higher taxes, higher national debt and higher unemployment. As we have seen recently, a Keir Starmer Government—sorry, Llywydd, a Sir Keir Starmer Government; whatever else he is, the man is still a knight—will mean higher taxes for ordinary men and women throughout Wales....

Police Reform and Social Responsibility Bill — Report (5th Day)(Continued) (14 Jul 2011)

Lord Thomas of Gresford: If my learned noble friend will control himself for a moment, I shall come to that question in due course. Mr Starmer has indicated that he would wish to apply a public interest filter to both the tests that are set out in the amendment. Unlike an ordinary prosecution, Mr Starmer would wish to consider the public interest question on the threshold test as well as the full code test. His view...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Ministerial Statement: Child Sexual Exploitation Inquiry:  Appointment of a Chairperson ( 5 Nov 2013)

Jim Allister: Going back to the comments of Keir Starmer, does the Minister think that the term of reference that says: "make recommendations on the future actions required to prevent and tackle child sexual exploitation" is adequate to permit a recommendation that, as Mr Starmer suggested, failure to report child sex abuse should be made a criminal offence?  Is that term of reference adequate for that,...

1. Questions to the Minister for Finance and Local Government: Business Rates (13 Oct 2021)

Altaf Hussain: Thank you, Minister. Minister, your party leader, Keir Starmer, has said that the Labour Party favours the abolishing of business rates and that they should be replaced. We all know that many businesses in Wales have struggled and, with our towns needing an economic boost, it is time that our approach to business support is addressed. Was Keir Starmer talking on your behalf too, and, if he...

1. Questions to the First Minister: Questions Without Notice from the Party Leaders (19 Mar 2024)

Rhun ap Iorwerth: ...that it's held to account by a strong cohort of Plaid Cymru Members of Parliament. But what next for Wales then? The First Minister has admitted to me several times that he can't influence Keir Starmer to make a pledge on fair funding, and, no, I don't apologise for raising that issue again in this last scrutiny session. I was told by the First Minister last week that a phone call from him...

Public Bill Committee: Investigatory Powers Bill: Modification of warrants (14 Apr 2016)

Keir Starmer: I would be interested in the Government’s position on that, because it does not sit with what is in the code of practice. If all clause 30 intends is to say, “We thought he was called Keir Starmer; now we know he’s called Steve”—I have always wanted to be called Steve—“but the warrant applies to exactly the same person,” or, “We thought it was 137 Charlton Road; we now...

Scottish Parliament: First Minister’s Question Time: National Health Service (16 May 2024)

John Swinney: relieve bankers of the obligation to pay into our tax system by lifting the cap on their bonuses. That is a ludicrous position. This morning, I listened to the contribution from Keir Starmer in which he set out Labour’s policy position. I did not hear Keir Starmer setting out an uplift in public expenditure as a consequence of 14 years of austerity.

Scottish Parliament: Trident (24 Mar 2021)

Bill Kidd: In an interview with the BBC, Sir Keir Starmer has claimed that in the forthcoming Scottish Parliament election Trident is not on the ballot paper, because it is not a matter for Holyrood. However, in 2015, here at Holyrood, Labour voted to oppose nuclear weapons, which was brilliant. Does the First Minister agree that spending increasing billions on weapons of mass destruction is...

7. Plaid Cymru Debate: HS2 funding ( 5 Jun 2024)

Natasha Asghar: Not any more, please, I'd like to carry on. Labour leader Keir Starmer has time and time again refused to commit to giving Wales extra HS2 money should he—and this is an incredibly frightening thought—become Prime Minister in the next few weeks. Hopefully he will never get his hands on the keys to 10 Downing Street, but, if he does, he has been clear that no cash will be forthcoming to...

4. Topical Questions: Industrial Action in the NHS ( 7 Dec 2022)

Russell George: .... So, if the Scottish Government can get around the negotiation table and make an offer, why can't you? What is different here in Wales to the position in Scotland? Rhun has mentioned Keir Starmer. Keir Starmer is saying and implying that the disputes here have been resolved. That's what he's saying. So, can I ask you, Minister, have you corrected Keir Starmer or does he know something...

2. Questions to the Counsel General and Minister for the Constitution: Hillsborough Law Campaign (17 May 2023)

Jack Sargeant: ...people real access to justice. The UK Conservative Government are bringing forward a Victims and Prisoners Bill that will simply not achieve this; it does not go far enough, Counsel General. Keir Starmer has committed to bringing forward a Hillsborough law when he is Prime Minister. Given your continuous support, which I'm very grateful for, Counsel General, will you begin the work here in...
