Religious Persecution - Motion to Take Note (11 Jul 2019)

Baroness Goldie: ...Commonwealth Office and involve other departments. I am pleased to say that not only the Foreign Secretary welcomed the report very warmly; the other contender for the position of Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, also welcomed the review and said he would always prioritise protecting religious freedoms and standing up for those facing persecution. We will consider this hard-hitting report in...

Backbench Business: National Shipbuilding Strategy — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (11 Jul 2019)

Kevan Jones: ...ask the Conservative Members here to tell those contenders that a reply to those letters would be helpful. It was especially remarkable that the right hon. Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson) visited a yard in Glasgow last week and was clearly not even briefed on the vessels. It was a good debate, and we need to keep having these debates and talking about these issues...

20 Years of Devolution (11 Jul 2019)

Liz Saville-Roberts: ...in the best interests of the country, not in the best interests of the Labour party. With the impending threat of a no-deal Brexit and the right hon. Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson) as Prime Minister, change is more vital than ever. Brexit has shone a pitiless light on the inadequacies of the UK constitution. The European Union (Withdrawal) Act will, with the aiding...

UK’s Ambassador to the USA: Resignation - Statement (11 Jul 2019)

Lord Collins of Highbury: ..., who resigned simply for doing his job. As Tom Tugendhat said in the other place this morning, it is absolutely essential that we all stand up for those we send abroad. It is deeply shameful that Boris Johnson was unable to do that, despite the six opportunities he had on Tuesday. Nevertheless, in the other place this morning Alan Duncan said we will appoint a new ambassador in the usual...

Business of the House (11 Jul 2019)

Valerie Vaz: ...Before the Leader of the House says anything, let me remind him that it was not Labour brothers who did that; Lehman Brothers was responsible. The right hon. Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson) has repeatedly refused to rule out no deal, so I ask again: please will the Leader of the House give us time to debate the Lords message? Will the Government explicitly rule out...

Resignation of Uk Ambassador to Usa (11 Jul 2019)

Pat McFadden: ..., the relationship between the United Kingdom and the United States is bigger than this matter and bigger than this President. The response of the right hon. Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson) was an appalling abandonment of someone in the firing line. Real leaders protect their people; they do not throw them to the wolves because they can sniff a prize for themselves....

High Speed 2 (10 Jul 2019)

Liam Byrne: ...other projects, and Opposition Members will be forgiven for worrying that it will disappear into the £10 billion-a-year tax cut proposed by the right hon. Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson). The right hon. Member for South Northamptonshire was right to demand choices, but the choices that she proposes are wrong. The real strategic transport choice that this country...

Animal Welfare (Sentencing) Bill (Programme): Climate Change, the Environment and Global Development (10 Jul 2019)

Chris Law: ...given that the leading candidate for that role would not even defend the UK ambassador to the US last night. I also have grave concerns that the right hon. Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson) is more likely to mimic inward-looking, “America first” Trump with regard to aid and international development. He has previously called for DFID to be closed and rolled back...

Migrant Children: Welfare - Question for Short Debate (9 Jul 2019)

Lord Watson of Invergowrie: ...English language strategy to ensure that everyone in this country, especially those with newly recognised refugee status, are supported to speak the same language”. Someone should tell that to Boris Johnson who, only three days ago, demanded that immigrants should learn English to integrate better. His ignorance would be amusing if this was not such a serious issue. Mr Johnson should...

Northern Ireland (Executive Formation) Bill: Extension of period for forming an Executive (9 Jul 2019)

Gavin Newlands: ...—a parade of wannabe comedians trying their best to recreate Freedonia in their own image, with the biggest joke of all reserved for when the right hon. Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson) enters No. 10, perhaps by zipslide. But at least Freedonia was fictitious. Of course it would be easy for those on the Treasury Bench, now or at some point after the right hon....

Active Travel — [Mr Adrian Bailey in the Chair] (9 Jul 2019)

Ruth Cadbury: ...run or walk are better learners during the day. It is no coincidence that a large number of City companies pushed the former Mayor of London, the right hon. Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson), to go ahead with the east-west cycle route in London. They pushed for that because they knew that it would make their staff more productive at work, as more people cycling often...

Northern Ireland (Executive Formation) Bill (8 Jul 2019)

Gavin Newlands: ...of politics on these islands. Indeed, it has cost the Prime Minister her job and looks likely to lumber us with the former Foreign Secretary, the right hon. Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson). Despite the Conservatives’ hustings over in Northern Ireland, the complete ignorance shown by the would-be Prime Ministers has been shocking, as the hon. Member for North Dorset...

Parliamentary Buildings (Restoration and Renewal) Bill - Second Reading (8 Jul 2019)

Lord Foulkes of Cumnock: ...to come to. I urge the people concerned in all seriousness to look at this again. We are heading towards disaster. I am putting my mark here: I predict that whoever becomes Prime Minister, whether Boris Johnson or Jeremy Corbyn—the latter is possible, although whether it is desirable is another matter—when faced with this proposal for billions of pounds to be spent on Parliament when...

Apprenticeships - Motion to Take Note (4 Jul 2019)

Lord Aberdare: ...tax, designed to raise money to help pay for the Government’s skills-related policy initiatives but with no direct benefits for them. The levy does indeed begin to seem like a perfect policy for Boris Johnson, seeking to be all things to all people. Therefore, my first point—with apologies to noble Lords, including the Minister, who heard me say something similar on Tuesday—is that...

NHS: Future UK Trade Deals - Motion to Take Note (4 Jul 2019)

Lord Brooke of Alverthorpe: ...emblazoned on the side of a red double-decker bus—another great British emblem—which the head of the UK Statistics Authority called, “a clear misuse of official statistics”, in a letter to Boris Johnson. What Mr Johnson and the Brexiteers carefully concealed by omission is that the EU affords a degree of protection for the NHS from predators and profiteers by limiting market...

Business of the House (4 Jul 2019)

Valerie Vaz: ...that he views with alarm the promises made by Tory leadership candidates? The shadow Chancellor has costed those pledges, and the total for the right hon. Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson) is £57 billion and for the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, the right hon. Member for South West Surrey (Mr Hunt) it is £43.4 billion—more than £100...

Attorney General: Leaving the EU (4 Jul 2019)

David Linden: If, as appears to be the case, the right hon. Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson), of whom the Attorney General is a supporter, does become the next Prime Minister, will the Attorney General support the right hon. Gentleman’s refusal to rule out a Prorogation of Parliament for a no-deal Brexit? Does he agree that that would surely be an act of constitutional vandalism?

SS “Richard Montgomery” - Question for Short Debate (3 Jul 2019)

Lord Patten: ...to safeguard this wreck by the detailed calculations and monitoring of the Department for Transport and the Maritime and Coastguard Agency. Of course, we have had reassurances in the past from Mr Boris Johnson that, should his island airport ever be built quite close by, it would not be a problem—so I am reassured by that, as I am sure the whole House is. The sorts of surveys that are...

Schools in Winchester (3 Jul 2019)

Steve Brine: ...life at this time. As we pause for breath before the new Prime Minister takes office later this month, I make this plea to my right hon. Friends the Members for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson) and for South West Surrey (Mr Hunt), as well as to the outgoing occupant of No. 10, whom I know will hear these words acutely. When I was a Minister at the Department of Health and Social...

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

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...has already fallen over each of the past 12 months, its trade body warning us that a no-deal Brexit would be a “knockout blow”, while Japan’s Foreign Minister urges Messrs Hunt and Johnson to avoid no deal, as Japanese car operations, “may not be able to continue”. Jeremy Hunt says that businesses going bust is “a price worth paying”, but Make UK, representing manufacturers,...
