Scottish Parliament: Tax and Public Spending (5 Feb 2020)

Murdo Fraser: ...block grant from Westminster will grow by at least £1.1 billion from this year to next year. According to the Fraser of Allander institute, that amounts to a 2.1 per cent real-terms increase. That Boris bonus gives the finance secretary considerable extra money to spend. However, that is not the entire picture, because the block grant has to be adjusted in two respects. First, we know...

Lobby and Media Briefings: Journalists' Access (4 Feb 2020)

Net Zero Targets and Decarbonising Transport — [Caroline Nokes in the Chair] (4 Feb 2020)

Damian Hinds: ...goods vehicles. I suggest that the most important change of all is one that has already started: a change in how we buy our own transportation. “Mobility as a service” includes everything from Boris bikes to car clubs. In the car market, it includes the growth of personal contract purchase plans and, significantly, personal contract hire plans. Why do I say that is so significant? Is...

Terrorism: Contest Strategy - Question for Short Debate (3 Feb 2020)

Lord Harris of Haringey: ..., we will improve the safety and security of public venues.” Brandon Lewis, the Security Minister, was reported as saying as recently as 12 January, following a meeting with Figen Murray, that Boris Johnson was “100% behind” the proposed reforms.

Defence, Diplomacy and Development Policy - Motion to Take Note (30 Jan 2020)

Baroness Wheeler: ...26, the UK must begin a new chapter in climate diplomacy and show real leadership to save our planet, not least by dedicating sufficient diplomatic resources to make the summit a success.

What action are the Government taking to ensure that the summit will have the diplomatic resources it needs to ensure...

European Union: Trading Arrangements - Question (30 Jan 2020)

Lord Wallace of Saltaire: My Lords, at the time of the referendum, Boris Johnson, now our Prime Minister, assured voters that frictionless trade would continue. That has now been completely forgotten, and he has said recently that we have to accept that there will be barriers to trade as part of what we have to get used to. Is the Minister’s commitment on dynamic alignment the same sort of possibly short-term...

Scottish Parliament: European Union Exit (30 Jan 2020)

Michael Russell: ...we have published—and we have given it lots of information on migration and Scotland’s specific needs. There has been no indication of a change of attitude. I want to touch on the words that Boris Johnson used—“absolutely fanciful and deranged”—about the paper that he had not read. The people who are “fanciful and deranged” would include, then, the former Conservative MP...

Scottish Parliament: Scotland’s Future (29 Jan 2020)

...said: “No means we stay in. We are members of the European Union”. Of course, we were also told back then that the Tories would probably not win the next election and that the prospect of Boris Johnson becoming Prime Minister was just a scare story. Yet now, because we are not independent, we have a Boris Johnson-led majority Government that Scotland did not vote for and we stand just...

Claim of Right for Scotland (27 Jan 2020)

David Mundell: ...week of the general election, SNP candidates told voters that the election was nothing to do with independence, but that they were to vote SNP if they were against Brexit or if they were against Boris. However, at 10 o’clock on 12 December, it was all to do with independence.

Questions to the Mayor of London — Vitality of Small Businesses and High Streets: Vitality of Small Businesses and High Streets (24 Jan 2020)

Sadiq Khan: ...rates. The new Government should seize the opportunity for a wholesale transfer of fiscal responsibilities recommended by the London Finance Commission, which was commissioned by [The Rt Hon] Boris Johnson [MP, Prime Minister], including the full devolution of business rates. The FSB’s campaign has highlighted a number of anomalies – for example, the rateable value threshold – and...

Questions to the Mayor of London — General election: General election (24 Jan 2020)

Sadiq Khan: ...five years. I believe that when somebody gets a new job or when you are the losing party, you congratulate the winner and you congratulate somebody who has a new job. I congratulate [The Rt Hon] Boris Johnson [MP]. He was elected the Prime Minister. He has a mandate. My job as the Mayor is to put aside party differences when I can and work with the Government. Look, he has won and he is...

High Speed 2 (Economic Affairs Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (23 Jan 2020)

Lord Kerr of Kinlochard: ...on the train and went to Euston. I cannot see why this end—the Primrose Hill end—has to be part of phase 1. If we had unlimited sums to spend, yes, we could replace Euston and tunnel under Boris Johnson’s father’s house. That is fine—perfectly okay. However, if it is about connectivity in the north, let us start in the north. NPR is clearly needed much more urgently than HS2....

Wuhan Coronavirus: Holocaust Memorial Day (23 Jan 2020)

Scott Benton: fit in this speech. It is famous for the confectionary Blackpool rock, and I welcomed my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister during the election campaign to assist in making a special “Back Boris” version of the rock. We were grateful to be offered a job should all have gone wrong on 12 December, but, fortunately—for the company at least—that has not been necessary. I am sure...
