Questions to the Mayor of London — Planning Green Paper: Planning Green Paper (28 Jun 2019)

Sadiq Khan: ...planning cannot cause a cut. We are going to make sure that the Government acts upon those permissions that have been granted but are not being built. In fact, the previous Mayor [The Rt Hon Boris Johnson MP] - who is probably going to be the next PM - was in favour of “use it or lose it”. He was an advocate for this when he was the Mayor and I am hoping that now he is likely to be the...

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

Andrew Dismore: well as businesses need urgent clarity, and what will happen once the UK leaves the EU so they can put effective continuity plans in place? What are businesses supposed to do when frontrunner Boris Johnson’s approach to businesses concerns about the hard Brexit he wants is to say, “Eff business”, as he did in June last year [2018] to the event marking the Queen’s official birthday?

Questions to the Mayor of London — Grenfell Tower fire: Grenfell Tower fire (28 Jun 2019)

Andrew Dismore: Thank you. What do you think the prospects are for justice for Grenfell if former Mayor Boris Johnson were to become PM? This is a man who broke his election promise not to cut the Fire Brigade in the 2014 Brigade cuts, axing ten fire stations, 14 fire engines and 553 firefighter posts. When I challenged him about it when he was sitting where you are, he simply replied, “Get stuffed”....

Co-Operative and Mutual Businesses (27 Jun 2019)

Marion Fellows: ...the EU without a deal would be worse than the 2008 financial crisis. The irresponsibility of the Tories is on full display with the claim of the right hon. Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson) that there could be a temporary “standstill” in the current trade arrangements with the EU while a new trade agreement is struck, and that premise being rejected by two...

Higher Education Institutions: Spending - Question (27 Jun 2019)

Lord Blunkett: My Lords, given the 8% real-terms reduction inherent in the current fee to 2022, and given that even Boris Johnson has not promised more money for further and higher education, will the Minister make representations to colleagues, both present and future, to recognise the real damage that would result from a further 20% cut in funding for teaching and student contact, and that the value of...

Business of the House (27 Jun 2019)

Valerie Vaz: ...the other place? The Prime Minister was plain wrong, and I have the relevant exchange here if it would be helpful to the Leader of the House. The right hon. Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson) withdrew the dangerous bendy buses from London, and they have since been removed in Swansea, York, Bradford and Leeds. Despite that, the Mayor of the West Midlands, Andy Street,...

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

Keith Brown: In light of the reports today that the couple who did their civic duty and reported 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...

Exiting the European Union: Topical Questions (27 Jun 2019)

Keir Starmer: ...of the difficult choices facing the next Prime Minister. He will be aware that in recent days his preferred candidate for Prime Minister, the right hon. Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson), has made a number of misleading statements about Brexit. Therefore, on behalf of the Government, could the Secretary of State make it clear today, first, that it is simply not...

Immigration (26 Jun 2019)

Joanna Cherry: ...the policy. Much as they like to try to lay the whole Brexit fiasco at the door of the current Prime Minister, such chameleon-like figures as the right hon. Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson) and Ruth Davidson—both populists who have more in common than either would care to admit—have tried to distance themselves from the hostile environment without ever taking a...

EU Structural Funds: Least Developed Regions — [Siobhain McDonagh in the Chair] (26 Jun 2019)

Luke Pollard:, what deadlines they will have to meet, or what happens to existing funded programmes. I worry that that is causing concern. I remember the right hon. Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson), now a Tory leadership contender, starting the referendum campaign in Cornwall —in the constituency, I believe, of the hon. Member for Truro and Falmouth—and grasping a pasty. I...

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: EU Withdrawal Agreement: Welsh Economy (26 Jun 2019)

John McNally: ...campaign, promised farmers that their subsidies would remain as they are after Brexit. Can the Secretary of State give a guarantee that the right hon.

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

Michael Russell: ...of her being completely incapable of delivering Brexit. However, Tory truth is not infectious, and those who 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...

Scottish Parliament: UN Special Rapporteur on Extreme Poverty and Human Rights Report (26 Jun 2019)

Keith Brown: ...them from ill health, poor educational prospects or a lack of opportunities; and enhances their freedom. The difference between the SNP Government and the Tory Government could not be more stark. Boris Johnson and Jeremy Hunt have presided over a decade of austerity, cuts and sanctions, and they are now offering huge tax cuts to the wealthy. The Scottish Government, for its part, spends...

Scottish Parliament: Income Tax (25 Jun 2019)

Derek Mackay: ...’s question was partly about the position of taxpayers. Scotland has a more progressive tax system. The structure is fairer, as are the decisions that we have taken. If, for example, there is a Boris Johnson premiership, it is perfectly clear that the funding will go towards tax cuts for the richest 10 per cent in society. That is unfair and will continue austerity. The Scottish...

European Council (24 Jun 2019)

Ian Blackford: “not open for renegotiation.” Will the Prime Minister take this opportunity today to clarify, for the benefit of her Back Bencher the right hon. Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson) that the implementation period is indeed part of the withdrawal agreement? Does the Prime Minister agree with the comments of EU leaders that the withdrawal deal is not up for...

Export Licences: High Court Judgment (20 Jun 2019)

Barry Gardiner: ...he was obliged to take under criterion 2c of the consolidated criteria. The House may be surprised to learn of that official description of the right hon. Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson). Can the Secretary of State explain, given that he has previously assured the House that he will “personally lead on helping the defence and security industries to export and will...

Brexit: Discussions with the European Union - Question (20 Jun 2019)

Baroness Ludford: My Lords, the various backers of Boris Johnson, such as Dominic Raab and David Davis, have backed him on the basis that we must leave the EU on 31 October. However, in the debate on Monday the putative future Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, refused to give such an absolute guarantee. He thought that leaving on 31 October was only “eminently feasible”. Could the Minister tell us what...

Business of the House (20 Jun 2019)

Valerie Vaz: ...elected leader, but the Government have cut the number already. He is merely repeating a commitment made by Her Majesty’s Opposition. As for the right hon. Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson), he has been careless with his words. He has said that his comments about Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe had made “no difference”, but they were used at her trial. He has put a...

Scottish Parliament: Provisional Outturn 2018-19 (20 Jun 2019)

Derek Mackay: ...that helps those at the bottom, rather than giving constant tax cuts to the rich, which is the trend in the right-wing Tory party, and is about to be compounded with the potential election of Boris Johnson as the new Brexit-crazy Prime Minister.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Intergovernmental Relations (19 Jun 2019)

Lesley Laird: ...issues I have outlined confirms why we are in this mess. Given that he is unhappy in his work, his threats to resign may well be fulfilled by the right hon. Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson) in a short period. Both the Secretary of State and Ruth Davidson have flip-flopped on whether they would work with the former Foreign Secretary if he became Prime Minister. Does...
