Fisheries Bill [HL] - Second Reading (11 Feb 2020)

Viscount Hanworth: ...was granted to the other European nations. The situation was worsened by the severe contemporaneous decline in fish stocks on account of the overfishing. Now, in the words of our Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, Britain will “take back control” and have full jurisdiction over its “spectacular marine wealth”. He has asserted that: “We will make sure we don’t trade away Britain’s...

Transport Infrastructure (11 Feb 2020)

Boris Johnson: I thought the right hon. Member for Islington North (Jeremy Corbyn) made a manful attempt to conceal his fundamental agreement with what we are doing. He raised some interesting points. We are actually doing a transport revolution across the whole of the south-west, not only by investing in the sea wall at Dawlish, on the railways, but by upgrading the roads, including the A303 through the...

Climate Change - Motion to Take Note (6 Feb 2020)

Lord Browne of Ladyton: ...climate change being a pressing existential threat, leaders have so far preferred a series of long-term grand targets and few, if any, of the grand policies needed to achieve them. On Tuesday, Boris Johnson revealed why. The Prime Minister, like many other leaders, believes that technological advances will do the job for him. He is, in his own words, a self-confessed techno-optimist. It is...

Scottish Parliament: Environmental Sustainability (Farming) (6 Feb 2020)

Ruth Maguire: I thank the minister for that very full answer. The minister will be aware that Boris Johnson has made it clear several times that he intends to allow genetically modified crops to be grown in England. What consultation has there been with the Scottish Government on that? Will the minister provide reassurance to concerned citizens about the Scottish Government’s position on GM crop cultivation?

Scottish Parliament: Budget 2020-21 (6 Feb 2020)

Kate Forbes: ...continues to bite. Just last week, there were widespread reports that all UK Government departments were being ordered to identify savings of 5 per cent. That order was issued by none other than Boris Johnson and Sajid Javid. It seems that old habits die hard for the Tories. If the UK Government does not live up to its promises, we will have to take the unprecedented step of returning to...

Wales: European Structural Funds - Question for Short Debate (5 Feb 2020)

Lord Griffiths of Burry Port: ...Not a penny less, not a power lost”: that has been the Government’s pledge and the promise made by many leave campaigners in the run-up to the 2016 referendum who now hold integral roles in the Boris Johnson Government—although whether they will after tomorrow is anybody’s guess. We will just have to wait for that one. It is vital that the Government should keep that pledge, and I...

Rail Services: Maidenhead, Twyford and Branch Lines — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (5 Feb 2020)

Theresa May: ...say, “We want to remove the mainline services. You can just be part of a London metro service.” My concern was exacerbated when my right hon. Friend the Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson), when Mayor of London, suggested that the stations in my constituency should come under the complete remit of Transport for London, as part of the London metro services. I rejected...

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

Keith Brown: ...about that Tory tax being applied to every council in Scotland. Is that not Tory MSPs’ function? Are they not meant to be here to defend Scottish councils, or are they here just to do what Boris Johnson tells them to do? As we have heard a lot about from Westminster, talks about the block grant are frequent, but people do not really talk about how it is arrived at. Yesterday, the UK...

Prime Minister: Engagements (5 Feb 2020)

Boris Johnson: The whole House will want to pay tribute to the police and all the emergency services for their brave response to the terrorist incident in Streatham on Sunday. That appalling incident makes plain the case for immediate action, and we will shortly introduce emergency legislation to ensure that we do everything to protect the public. This morning I had meetings with ministerial colleagues and...

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. We have been promised, and we heard it again today, new counterterrorism legislation within 100 days of the new Parliament sitting, but in...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Communities: Universal Credit: Waiting Times (3 Feb 2020)

Deirdre Hargey: ...who work at the coalface of this issue. Thank you for raising the question. It is a serious problem for people who are claiming universal credit for the first time. When the British Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, was here a few weeks ago when the institutions were re-established, I made it clear to him that welfare reform was hurting many of our people, and particularly the most vulnerable...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs: Brexit: Basic Payment Scheme (3 Feb 2020)

Matthew O'Toole: ...statements that he has made about the next few years and the partial guarantees that we have over farm income, and that there is the threat of cheap food coming in as a result of trade deals that Boris Johnson wants to sign around the world, while I would not want the Minister to recant his support for Brexit, can I ask him that he use his office and the platform and role that he has to...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Matter of the Day: European Union Withdrawal (3 Feb 2020)

Jonathan Buckley: the sense that the withdrawal agreement itself compromises the integrity of the Union that I cherish. Collective decision-making will be required from the House and our political leaders to hold Boris Johnson, the Prime Minister, firm to his commitment of free, unfettered access within the United Kingdom. That is something that we as a House should be united on. I welcome what has been...

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...
