Public Bill Committee: Trade (Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership) Bill [Lords]: Clause 3 - Procurement (20 Feb 2024)

Gareth Thomas: Does my hon. Friend remember that once upon a time, one of the Prime Ministers not so long ago—I think his name was Boris Johnson—backed the idea that we should buy British? However, we have not heard anything recently about that concept. Certainly, the approach in the CPTPP—the lack of an enforceable labour standards provision, for example—suggests that Ministers have given up on the...

Windsor Framework (Constitutional Status of Northern Ireland) Regulations 2024 - Motion to Approve (13 Feb 2024)

Lord Hain: ...a very hard Brexit—the harder the trade border in the Irish Sea and the greater the discomfort for unionists and those Conservatives who trumpet their support for the union but—notably like Boris Johnson and the noble Lord, Lord Frost, did with their Brexit deal—in fact often betray it. None of us knows how all this will play out over the next decade or so, but we can be sure that...

Conversion Therapy Prohibition (Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity) Bill [HL] - Second Reading ( 9 Feb 2024)

Baroness Chakrabarti: ...the intentions of the noble Baroness, Lady Burt. I think some kind of intervention in this area is long overdue. We have heard from the speeches of Theresa May when she was Prime Minister, and Boris Johnson, when he was Prime Minister, made similar remarks. It is always dangerous to attempt to gauge the consensus of your Lordships’ House, but, like many noble Lords, I do not think that...

Scottish Parliament: Michael Matheson (Resignation) ( 8 Feb 2024)

Humza Yousaf: ...stand down, and I have accepted his resignation. The Conservatives talking about integrity in public life will be quite galling for those who are listening. I remind Douglas Ross that he called Boris Johnson an “honest man”. That would be the Boris Johnson who lied about partygate. That would be the Conservatives, of course, who awarded multimillion-pound personal protective equipment...

Ukraine Conflict - Question ( 7 Feb 2024)

Lord Singh of Wimbledon: My Lords, according to both Ukrainian and Russian media, former PM Boris Johnson, in a visit to Kyiv in 2022, persuaded President Zelensky to reject a peace deal with Putin that would have led to the withdrawal of Russian troops in return for an undertaking that Ukraine would not join NATO. Does the Minister agree that this was an opportunity missed and has since cost thousands of lives?

2. Questions to the Minister for Health and Social Services: Questions Without Notice from Party Spokespeople ( 7 Feb 2024)

Mabon ap Gwynfor: It is disappointing to hear the Minister blame London for everything. While Boris Johnson and London were certainly to blame for a number of things, here in Wales the Government decided to introduce mask wearing at a later date than in England, for instance, and it was the Welsh Government that decided to release or allow elderly people to go back to care homes. So, those are entirely Welsh...

Police Grant Report ( 7 Feb 2024)

Chris Philp: ...forces are being creative by, for example, co-locating with fire stations. Good police and crime commissioners avoided closing police stations. For example, the former Conservative Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, managed to largely avoid police station closures—closures that his predecessor, Ken Livingstone, had planned, and that his successor, Sadiq Khan, has in some cases carried out,...

Prime Minister: Engagements ( 7 Feb 2024)

Stephen Flynn: ..., who is in the Public Gallery. I also send my best wishes to King Charles for what will hopefully be a quick and full recovery. The public are used to the Tories gambling on the lives of others: Boris Johnson did it with public health during the pandemic, and his immediate successor did it with household finances. Not to be outdone, on Monday this week the Prime Minister accepted a crude...

Miscellaneous ( 6 Feb 2024)

Catherine West: ...litre in the last week of June 2022 and diesel hitting almost £2 per litre in the first week of July 2022, the same week that 21 Ministers claimed severance payments after joining the coup against Boris Johnson. Of course, there are also mortgage payments. The Bank of England base rate started the year in April 2022 at 0.75% and ended the year in March 2023 at 4.25%, with the biggest...

Industrial Strategy - Motion to Take Note ( 1 Feb 2024)

Lord Willetts: ...him in this debate, and I realised that there were some rather significant career parallels. We both began our careers as Treasury officials and both then moved to 10 Downing Street. He worked for Boris Johnson; I worked for Margaret Thatcher. I am now here on the Tory Benches and he is a Cross-Bencher, which may tell us something about the particular qualities of bipartisanship that he...

Scottish Parliament: Covid-19 Pandemic (Scottish Government Decisions) ( 1 Feb 2024)

...the decisions for purely epidemiological reasons. When it comes to the UK Government and the messages that we have seen, I remind Douglas Ross of what has been revealed. He had a Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, who he not only backed to the very end but invited to his party conference. According to the evidence that we have heard, Boris Johnson allegedly said, “let the bodies pile up...

Political Parties, Elections and Referendums (31 Jan 2024)

Dawn Butler: The Minister is better than this motion—let us all agree on that. Like the SNP spokesperson, the hon. Member for Glasgow North (Patrick Grady), I think it is a hangover from the Boris Johnson days, when the Electoral Commission upset him and he wanted to influence it. The Minister can correct me if I am wrong. The Government claim that this strategy will enhance the parliamentary...

UK-EU Trade: Small and Medium-sized Enterprises - Question (31 Jan 2024)

Baroness Quin: When the former Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, announced his trade deal with the EU in 2020, he said there would be no non-tariff barriers to trade between us and the EU. That claim has turned out to be spectacularly false, given the extra bureaucracy and costs that many businesses, particularly small businesses, are facing as a result of that deal. As we know, these burdens are due to get...

Scottish Parliament: UK Covid-19 Inquiry (31 Jan 2024)

John Mason: The member talks about people being serious. Does he think that Boris Johnson was serious enough about the pandemic?

The general principles of the Senedd Cymru (Members and Elections) Bill and the financial resolution in respect of the Senedd Cymru (Members and Elections) Bill (30 Jan 2024)

Alun Davies: ...'ve got too many politicians, we don't need any more. What was running through my mind was, 'Has he had this conversation with Lord Cameron? Has he had this conversation with the family members of Boris Johnson? Has he had this conversation with all the donors and cronies and hangers-on that now populate the red benches in London?' And, of course, the answer is, 'No, he hasn't.' And he's...

3. Statement by the First Minister: The final report of the Independent Commission on the Constitutional Future of Wales (30 Jan 2024)

Mark Drakeford: ...a decade. In December 2019, the Conservative Party was able to form the first clear majority Government at Westminster since 1992, and the first since devolution. The Prime Minister of the time, Boris Johnson, told his supporters that he regarded devolution as the greatest mistake of the New Labour Government and proceeded to deal with legislatures in Belfast, Cardiff and Edinburgh on that...

Scottish Parliament: European Union (30 Jan 2024)

Christine Grahame: .... What happened to the “oven-ready” meal? Promises that were made include—not in any particular order of merit—the better together campaign director Blair McDougall telling Scotland that Boris Johnson would never become Prime Minister. The biggest and most disputed claim that was put forward by the leave camp was that Britain sent £350 million a week to the EU and that that money...

Road Traffic Deaths: Police Investigations (29 Jan 2024)

Mark Pawsey: ...has been endorsed over the years by all the Prime Ministers since that time, from Tony Blair through to Gordon Brown, David Cameron, my right hon. Friend the Member for Maidenhead (Mrs May) and Boris Johnson, along with every single Metropolitan Police Commissioner since 2000, and, most especially and significantly, by the Metropolitan police’s traffic command and its officers. The...

1. Questions to the First Minister: Questions Without Notice from the Party Leaders (23 Jan 2024)

Mark Drakeford: ...talking about were actions that lay in the hands of the UK Government, and negotiations between the company and the UK Government had already been protracted. I wrote to the then Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, on 22 July 2022, setting out all these points for him as well, and he replied to me in mid August saying that these were all points that he recognised, that his Government was...

Intergovernmental Relations Within the United Kingdom - Motion to Take Note (18 Jan 2024)

Lord Wallace of Saltaire: ...this issue, partly because levelling up has clearly not succeeded. I feel resentment from the people I meet in Yorkshire about the failure of levelling up, as well as about the promises made by Boris Johnson and others. The thought that we would have begun to have improved infrastructure and greater finance for local authority action has been disappointed. We would be much better off if we...
