Brexit - Motion to Take Note (19 Oct 2019)

Baroness Smith of Newnham: ...Prime Minister or his predecessor to find a deal that is acceptable to the whole of the United Kingdom. We have heard exhortations today to support this new wonder-deal that our new Prime Minister Boris Johnson has found. It is an inferior deal to the one that Theresa May saw rejected three times. I spoke in a debate on that deal in December last year; I did not feel a need to speak...

United Kingdom’s Ambassador to the United States: Leaked Messages - Question for Short Debate (25 Jul 2019)

Baroness Smith of Newnham: ...statement, made on the steps of No. 10 yesterday and in the House of Commons earlier today. However, we have heard no real commitment to foreign policy. When the leak happened, the response of Boris Johnson—then a candidate for the Conservative leadership—was strange. I would have assumed that, in the context of a leak, the person who is at fault is not the one who has been leaked but...

EEA Nationals (Indefinite Leave to Remain) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (19 Jul 2019)

Baroness Smith of Newnham: ...clear for any EU citizens resident here at the time the United Kingdom leaves the European Union—if it happens on 31 October or on some other date. Theresa May did not campaign for Vote Leave; Boris Johnson did. Can the Minister undertake to send out words to Mr Johnson, in the event that he becomes Prime Minister next week, and suggest to him that this would be the perfect opportunity...

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

Baroness Smith of Newnham: ...Lordships should be prepared to be reminded by the noble Lord, Lord Callanan, that there have already been discussions and this is not on the cards. We heard the noble Lord, Lord Adonis, quoting Boris Johnson—a Boris Johnson who was actually articulating remaining in the European Union. Of course, one of the candidates to be leader of the Conservative Party does have a tendency to change...

Yemen: Giving Peace a Chance (International Relations Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (1 Apr 2019)

Baroness Smith of Newnham: ...our arms export licences to Saudi. Is the Minister satisfied that the United Kingdom is currently on just the right side of humanitarian and international law, as the former Foreign Secretary, Boris Johnson, believed, or may we have tripped over to the wrong side? This was a short inquiry, consisting of one evidence session. However, it was rich evidence session because the key evidence...

Middle East (IRC Report) - Motion to Take Note (4 Jul 2017)

Baroness Smith of Newnham: We started off with the idea of a relatively narrowly defined inquiry, looking at Saudi and Iran and the relations between them. However, we had already heard the Foreign Secretary, Boris Johnson, talking about proxy wars; there were already ideas that we were going to go well beyond just those two countries. The themes we were particularly looking at, and on which I will focus,...
