Valedictory Debate (24 May 2024)

Ben Wallace: at Westminster, the right hon. Member for Ross, Skye and Lochaber (Ian Blackford), and when I could sit down and talk to the right hon. and learned Member for Holborn and St Pancras (Keir Starmer) about secrets and threats to our constituents. It was at its best when we had a Prime Minister, the right hon. Member for Maidenhead, who knew security, and took the hours and days needed...

Scottish Parliament: Europe Day 2024 (23 May 2024)

Alasdair Allan: ...with the potential for a new Government in Westminster, the tunnel vision on anything related to the EU or the single market looks to be firmly set to continue. Last month, both Keir Starmer and Rishi Sunak rejected the European Commission’s proposals for a post-Brexit youth mobility deal, for instance, which would have allowed those aged between 18 and 30 to live, study or...

Business of the House (23 May 2024)

Paul Howell: ...well. How does she think business questions would survive in the event of a Labour Government, because with the speed at which the right hon. and learned Member for Holborn and St Pancras (Keir Starmer) changes his mind, we might need them daily?

Culture, Media and Sport: Youth Investment Fund (23 May 2024)

Thangam Debbonaire: ...UK that they are better off, after 14 years of Conservative failures on youth services, failures on education and failures on skills development, than they would be under a Government led by Keir Starmer and a changed Labour party?

1. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for North Wales and Transport: Questions Without Notice from Party Spokespeople (22 May 2024)

Delyth Jewell: ..., please, how this links up with 'Cymraeg 2050'? And also, Cabinet Secretary, you mentioned funding there. It does concern me that the Welsh Government isn't pressing the UK Government or Keir Starmer on fair funding for Wales enough about this to help to rectify this issue, which lets our children and our young people down. So, what steps, please, would you take urgently to address that?

Prime Minister: Engagements (22 May 2024)

Keir Starmer: I will begin by saying a few words to the hon. Member for South Thanet (Craig Mackinlay). First, thank you for meeting me privately this morning with your wife and daughter, so I could personally convey my best wishes to all of you. Secondly, on some occasions—there are not many—this House genuinely comes together as one, and we do so today to pay tribute to your courage and...

Infected Blood - Statements (21 May 2024)

Lord Collins of Highbury: ...Howe, for repeating both Statements. The infected blood scandal is, of course, one of the gravest injustices in our history and a profound moment of shame for the British state. Yesterday, Keir Starmer, leader of the Opposition, apologised on behalf of the Labour Governments of the past. The Prime Minister did the same on behalf of all Governments and the country. The scale of the horror...

Infected Blood Inquiry Report (20 May 2024)

Keir Starmer: This response can begin in only one place, because this is an injustice that has spanned across Governments on an unprecedented scale, and collectively we failed to protect some of the most vulnerable in our country. So as well as paying tribute to the courage and determination of the victims—the infected and the affected—some of whom are in the Gallery today, I want to acknowledge to...

Community Sports: Impact on Young People - Motion to Take Note (16 May 2024)

Baroness Thornton: ...and founding the Kings Cross Steelers is of huge benefit for everybody in rugby and for gay rights. I am proud to know him as a friend. Today, the leader of my party, the right honourable Keir Starmer MP, announced the first steps we will take, if we form the next Government, to begin a decade of national renewal. Given the importance of sport in our national life and our well-being, and...

Women’s State Pension Age: Ombudsman Report (16 May 2024)

Patricia Gibson: ...from both the UK Government and the Labour Opposition. The Leader of the Opposition has himself benefited from a special law passed in Parliament: the Pensions Increase (Pension Scheme for Keir Starmer QC) Regulations 2013. It relates to when he was the Director of Public Prosecutions in England, and his personal pension is protected. It is quite literally one law for him and another law...

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.

Prime Minister: Engagements (15 May 2024)

Keir Starmer: On Monday, the Prime Minister treated us to his seventh relaunch in 18 months. He vowed to take on the dangers that threaten the country, so it was good to see the Minister for common sense immediately take up that mantle by announcing a vital crackdown on the gravest of threats—colourful lanyards. Meanwhile, in the real world, after 14 years of Tory Government, the prison system is in...

7. Statement by the First Minister: Tata Steel (14 May 2024)

Vaughan Gething: ...called repeatedly, including when Mark Drakeford was the First Minister, for no irreversible choices to be made this side of a general election that is not far off. That is the clear call from Keir Starmer too. Our challenge, though—. My concern is that the company have decided they want to make those choices before a Labour Government is in place, and that is a really significant...

Skills: Importance for the UK Economy and Quality of Life - Motion to Take Note ( 9 May 2024)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: March this year. I congratulate both our maiden speech contributors. I am sure that we will welcome their future contribution to the House. In Breaking down the Barriers to Opportunity, Keir Starmer set out clearly Labour’s fifth mission in government: to break down the barriers to opportunity for every child, at every stage, and shatter the class ceiling. We will track our progress...

Prime Minister: Engagements ( 8 May 2024)

Keir Starmer: May I warmly welcome my hon. Friend, the new Member for Blackpool South (Chris Webb)? After the representation that fine town has had recently, it is good to know that it has a proper champion back at last. May I also warmly welcome the new Labour MP, my hon. Friend the Member for Dover (Mrs Elphicke), to these Benches? If one week a Tory MP who is also a doctor says that the Prime Minister...

Defence ( 7 May 2024)

John Healey: ...UK-Ukraine security co-operation agreement. Let us take the politics out of this country’s backing for Ukraine. As my right hon. and learned Friend the Member for Holborn and St Pancras (Keir Starmer) said to President Zelensky in Kyiv, while there may be a change of Government at the election, there will be no change in Britain’s resolve to support Ukraine, confront Russian...

Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 19 ( 7 May 2024)

Baroness Deech: ...glad that it is no longer the case. I can share it with the noble Lord. The analogy should not be pushed that far. I also note that a group called Muslim Vote, which has put 18 demands to Sir Keir Starmer, has as the 17th demand the throwing out of the Bill, which I think shows what the group understands the point of the Bill to be: simply that it might stand in the way of whatever its...

Illegal Immigration: Costs — [Graham Stringer in the Chair] ( 7 May 2024)

Andrea Jenkyns: use loopholes in our human rights laws to bolster their applications. That is something that the Leader of the Opposition, the right hon. and learned Member for Holborn and St Pancras (Keir Starmer), understands all too well. Let us not forget how, as a human rights barrister, he acted for Islamic cleric Abu Qatada in his bid to avoid deportation. He also helped an Iraqi terrorist...

10. Short Debate: Gaza — A Welsh response ( 1 May 2024)

Sioned Williams: ...a debate held calling for an immediate ceasefire. During that debate the former First Minister Humza Yousaf said that he had sent a letter from the Scottish Government to both Rishi Sunak and Keir Starmer asking them to call for an immediate ceasefire. Has the Welsh Government done the same?

6. Welsh Conservatives Debate: The Cass review ( 1 May 2024)

Rhianon Passmore: ...and all our people ill where we are not able to share honestly held views that ordinary citizens going about their daily lives today will share.  As the leader of the UK Labour Party, Keir Starmer, stated yesterday, the Labour Party has championed women's rights for a very long time. It is important in a Welsh context to stress that NHS Wales commissions gender identity services, as has...
