Home Department: Dungavel House Immigration Removal Centre (20 Mar 2023)

Robert Jenrick: remove foreign national offenders. We do not want them to remain in the UK. We also do not want to close detention centres. The right hon. and learned Member for Holborn and St Pancras (Keir Starmer) campaigned to be Leader of the Opposition on a pledge to close detention centres, but we want to get dangerous offenders such as murderers and rapists out of this country.

Budget Statement - Motion to Take Note (Continued) (16 Mar 2023)

Lord Brooke of Alverthorpe: ...why we are short in the workforce. There is a whole range of different analyses being made as to the causes for that. When responding to the Chancellor yesterday in the Commons, my leader, Keir Starmer, said that we were the “sick man of Europe”. In that context, I think he was talking primarily about the economy, because in relative terms we are doing badly on recovery compared with...

Income Tax (Charge) (15 Mar 2023)

Gareth Thomas: ...worse—an average growth rate of just 0.8%. We face a Conservative decade of lost growth, missed opportunities and, as my right hon. and learned Friend the Member for Holborn and St Pancras (Keir Starmer) said from the Dispatch Box, managed decline. The Resolution Foundation last year underlined the significance of that lost decade for the UK: typical incomes are higher in Ireland than...

Prime Minister: Engagements (15 Mar 2023)

Keir Starmer: Last summer, the Prime Minister claimed that he wanted to protect free speech and put a stop to no-platforming, so how concerned was he by last week’s campaign by Tory MPs to cancel a broadcaster?

1. Questions to the First Minister: Questions Without Notice from the Party Leaders (14 Mar 2023)

Mark Drakeford: Llywydd, I was able to discuss with Keir Starmer the work of the McAllister-Williams review. He referred to it specifically in the speech that he made to the Labour Party conference, and I was very heartened by the fact that he is determined to show proper respect to the work of that Welsh commission, and to await its recommendations before taking decisions on policies that will enter the...

Prime Minister: Engagements ( 8 Mar 2023)

Keir Starmer: Today, on International Women’s Day, we celebrate the successes of women in our society. It is a crying shame that, as we do so, we face legislation that drives a coach and horses through our world-leading modern slavery framework, which protects women from exploitation. In the last decade, this Government have introduced five plans to tackle illegal immigration—five utter failures. The...

Group 2: SPC: meetings and chair (Amendments 13, 16, 17, 18, 21, 23, 24, 25, 26, 28, 29, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37, 38) ( 7 Mar 2023)

Joel James: No. —the Unite general secretary, Sharon Graham, threatening Sir Keir Starmer with a reduction in funding last July after he sacked Sam Tarry from the front bench for joining a picket line. The council, in its current form, means that the integrity of the advice and the impartiality of the First Minister will always be questioned. If the First Minister takes the advice of the council with...

Pensions (Extension of Automatic Enrolment) (No. 2) Bill ( 3 Mar 2023)

Lia Nici: ...on Government premises at a time of covid restrictions. There have been widespread concerns as to how this appointment by the right hon. and learned Member for Holborn and St Pancras (Keir Starmer) will interact with the current work of the Privileges Committee, which I understand is proposing to rely on the evidence of the Sue Gray report as its essential basis. Mr Deputy Speaker, can...

Welsh Affairs ( 2 Mar 2023)

Rob Roberts: ...30 minutes. Where is the outrage? Where are the demands for a better service? Instead, we heard the Leader of the Opposition, the right hon. and learned Member for Holborn and St Pancras (Keir Starmer), say in a speech last year that the Welsh Government were providing a “blueprint for what Labour can do across the UK”. You couldn’t make it up, Mr Deputy Speaker. However, as I said...

6. Plaid Cymru Debate: Industrial relations ( 1 Mar 2023)

Luke Fletcher: ...leave British law the most restrictive on trade unions in the Western world.' Now, I admit that I have more faith in the Welsh Government to protect workers' rights than I do in Blair, Brown and Starmer, but it's because of this lack of belief, and it's because of the fact that Welsh values, when it comes to industrial relations, don't always align with Westminster, that we should be...

Prime Minister: Engagements ( 1 Mar 2023)

Keir Starmer: Can I join the Prime Minister in wishing everybody a happy St David’s Day? After 13 years of Tory failure, the average family in Britain will be poorer than the average family in Poland by 2030. That is a shocking state of affairs. If the Tories limp on in government, we are going to see a generation of young people learning to say “auf Wiedersehen, pet” in Polish, aren’t we?

Labour Market Activity (28 Feb 2023)

Jerome Mayhew: ...election manifesto. Labour Members all fought the last election on the basis that they wanted to get rid of universal credit, and the right hon. and learned Member for Holborn and St Pancras (Keir Starmer) continued that policy. In October 2020, when he was already leader of the Labour party, he said that “in the long term” universal credit needed to be replaced “because… it traps...

Northern Ireland Protocol - Statement (28 Feb 2023)

Baroness Smith of Basildon: businesses about the need for common sense, clarity and honesty? Why did the Government negotiate and sign the treaty, given its failings? On a recent visit to Northern Ireland with Keir Starmer and Peter Kyle, businesses had a common message for us. They had different concerns about the protocol, but they all wanted to make it work and they all had suggestions of how, through...

Northern Ireland Protocol (27 Feb 2023)

Keir Starmer: I thank the Prime Minister for advance sight of his statement and for the briefing that I was given earlier this afternoon. I would like to start by joining the Prime Minister in paying tribute to Betty Boothroyd. As Speaker of this House, she was at the forefront of a generation who smashed the glass ceiling for female politicians. She was an inspirational woman and a dedicated and devoted...

Scottish Parliament: Marking One Year of War against Ukraine (23 Feb 2023)

Sarah Boyack: ...of a cruel, unjustifiable attack, which the whole world witnessed. I put on record my welcome to the Ukrainian consul who has been able to join us in Parliament during this debate. As Sir Keir Starmer said on his recent visit to Kyiv, the UK’s support for Ukraine is not party political, and a Labour Government would continue support for Ukraine. It is true to say that Russia could end...

Prime Minister: Engagements (22 Feb 2023)

Keir Starmer: I join the Prime Minister in his comments on Ukraine. I had the privilege last week of seeing first-hand the courage and resilience of the Ukrainian people. We must continue to stand united in this House in support of Ukraine. The thoughts of the whole House, and I am sure the whole country, will also be with the family of Nicola Bulley at this very difficult time. I welcome my hon. Friend...

Scottish Affairs Committee (21 Feb 2023)

David Linden: is giving seats away left, right and centre to the Liberal Democrats. We are often told—indeed, we were told on Sunday, when the right hon. and learned Member for Holborn and St Pancras (Keir Starmer) made one of his rare trips north to Scotland—that the path to a Labour Government runs through Scotland. This motion shows that Labour cannot get a path to a Labour Government when it...

Ukraine (20 Feb 2023)

David Lammy: ...stood united. That was the message that President Zelensky received when he visited Westminster. It was a message that my right hon. and learned Friend the Member for Holborn and St Pancras (Keir Starmer) took to Kyiv personally last week: Britain stands united behind Ukraine. In that spirit, I want to pay tribute to the Foreign Secretary and the Defence Secretary and our two former Prime...

Levelling Up, Housing and Communities: Topical Questions (20 Feb 2023)

Michael Gove: Keir Starmer.

Ukraine - Motion to Take Note ( 9 Feb 2023)

Lord Coaker: ...are particularly important in these circumstances. The noble Lord, Lord Cormack, and my noble friend pointed out the importance of the Prime Minister Rishi Sunak being seen alongside Sir Keir Starmer and other leaders of our political parties. That is of huge significance and shows that, although we obviously have some questions for and points to make to the Government—as the noble...
