Scottish Parliament: Supreme Court Judgment (Response) (24 Sep 2019)

Nicola Sturgeon: ..., of course, we must look forward. In my view, four things should happen. First, there must be a clear recognition that the person who is responsible for this fiasco is the Prime Minister. It was Boris Johnson who took the decision to prorogue Parliament; it was Boris Johnson who acted unlawfully; and—I do not say this lightly—it is Boris Johnson who must now resign. It is, of course,...

Scottish Parliament: Common Frameworks (24 Sep 2019)

Alex Rowley: ...progress is worrying. It strongly agrees with the committee report’s view that common frameworks must be arrived at through agreement and not imposed, but it has yet to receive assurances that Boris Johnson’s Government will approach the development of such frameworks in that way. That is particularly worrying given the scope that the UK Parliament’s European Union (Withdrawal) Bill...

Scottish Parliament: National Testing (Five-year-olds) (19 Sep 2019)

Willie Rennie: When Boris Johnson tramples over parliamentary democracy, the First Minister is outraged; when her education secretary does exactly the same, she pats him on the back. It is not just Parliament; teachers are being snubbed, too. In 400 pages of fresh criticism, teachers said that the tests were “a logistical nightmare”, caused a lot of stress to pupils and were “a waste of time”. That...

Scottish Parliament: Pre-release Access to Economic Statistics (Committee Bill Proposal) (19 Sep 2019)

Alex Rowley: ...’s position. However, as Gordon Lindhurst pointed out, a whole host of distinguished academics, policy wonks and think tanks say that there is a problem. It is as though the Government is doing a Boris Johnson and putting its hands over its ears. It is unwilling to listen to the evidence that has been clearly presented by many academics and others with expertise in the field, who say...

Scottish Parliament: Universities (No-deal Brexit) (17 Sep 2019)

Gillian Martin: ...from another EU country, what can the Scottish Government do to ensure that they continue to want to work here? Does the minister agree that freedom of movement must be put back on the table by Boris Johnson as he speaks to his counterparts from the rest of the EU?

Scottish Parliament: Brexit (Operation Yellowhammer) (12 Sep 2019)

Willie Rennie: ...closer than ever in our efforts to stop Brexit. The publication of the yellowhammer paper lays bare the mass disruption of our way of life that would come with a no-deal Brexit and yet that is what Boris Johnson’s Conservatives want to embrace. What is most shocking is that those horrors are the prediction of the Conservative Government, yet the Conservatives still plough on. Can the...

Previous Business – Commons: Select Committee (11 Sep 2019)

Liaison: Oral evidence from the Prime Minister. 3:30 pm; The Boothroyd Room, Portcullis House
Witnesses: Rt Hon Boris Johnson MP, Prime Minister

Scottish Parliament: Citizens Assembly of Scotland (11 Sep 2019)

Michael Russell: Boris Johnson is a member of the Tories.

Scottish Parliament: Immigration Policy (Universities and Scientific Research) (10 Sep 2019)

Daniel Johnson: ...different position from that of their UK counterparts. However, I must object to the attempt to take the politics out of this issue, because it is simply not possible. The acceleration, under Boris Johnson, towards a no-deal Brexit is one of the very real reasons why we are having this debate—a point underlined by the fact that the UK Secretary of State for Work and Pensions resigned...

Early Parliamentary General Election (No. 2) (9 Sep 2019)

George Howarth: ...shown great courage in carrying out your responsibilities, and I pay tribute to you. The other rule, which I am about to break, brings me to the right hon. Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson). He is, as everybody would agree, often entertaining. He does, as I know from some experience with him, have an enormous amount of stamina. However, political leaders need to have...

Report Pursuant to Sections 3(1), 3(6), 3(7), 3(8), 3(9) and 3(10) the Northern Ireland (Executive Formation etc) Act 2019 - Motion to Take Note (9 Sep 2019)

Baroness Smith of Basildon: ...mentioned this as well: the impact of no deal on Northern Ireland would be huge and I hope that the Minister’s colleagues in the House of Commons will not help to facilitate that by supporting Boris Johnson in pursuing it. The outgoing Secretary of State for Work and Pensions told some truths on behalf of the Prime Minister this weekend. She commented that there is an absence of work...

Prorogation of Parliament — [Joan Ryan in the Chair] (9 Sep 2019)

Kevin Foster: ...ahead of the European Council on 17 to 18 October. That would allow the Prime Minister, elected by the British people—either my right hon. Friend the Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson) or the right hon. Member for Islington North (Jeremy Corbyn)—to go to that European Council and for a newly elected Parliament to be in a position to consider what is agreed, and...

Northern Ireland (Ministerial Appointment Functions) (No. 2) Regulations 2019 - Motion to Approve (9 Sep 2019)

Lord Hain: ...Donaldson say, again on the “Today” programme recently, they need to be careful what they wish for. They may well find that English nationalists—that is who we seem to have in power under Boris Johnson at the moment—are no more sympathetic to their cause than Irish nationalists in the long term. They must know that the proof of this came earlier this year when the then Back-Bench...

High Speed Rail (West Midlands–Crewe) Bill - Second Reading (9 Sep 2019)

Lord Snape: ...issue of Rail magazine. Its editorial is mild praise for the Prime Minister. It refers to “Cunning politics around HS2” and says that the “Oakervee Review is all about what’s best for Boris Johnson”. That endorses the point that I have just made that this review avoids any direct commitment, any go-ahead, before the general election—whenever that is to be held. Yet I do not...

Points of Order (9 Sep 2019)

Dawn Butler: ...fifth I will have shadowed in just two years. [Interruption.] Government Members may groan, but they do not feel even half the pain that we feel on this side of the House. Trump recently described Boris Johnson as Britain’s Trump and he was grinning like a Cheshire cat. In the United States we have seen what can happen when a racist and sexist is placed in charge of a country:...

Written Answers — Prime Minister: Cambridge Analytica (9 Sep 2019)

Boris Johnson: I refer the Hon member to the answer given on 27 March 2018 by my Rt Hon Friend, the then Minister of State at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (official report Written question – 133927). Details of ministerial meetings with external organisations and individuals are published on the website.

Written Ministerial Statements — Prime Minister: Government structures for Brexit (9 Sep 2019)

Boris Johnson: I am making this statement to confirm Ministerial responsibilities for delivering Brexit. The Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster is responsible for practical preparations within the UK for leaving the European Union on 31 October, whether that is without a deal or with the new deal the Government is seeking. The Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union is responsible for direct...

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 6) Bill - Report: Amendment 1 (6 Sep 2019)

Lord Cormack: ...of the House and this, would have accepted it. I believe that would have been a sensible decision. We must remind ourselves that when it came up for the third time of asking in the other House, Mr Boris Johnson, not then the Prime Minister, voted for it, Mr Rees-Mogg voted for it and the Government in their entirety voted for it. I know that there has been a great clear-out of the...

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 6) Bill - Second Reading (5 Sep 2019)

Lord Wallace of Saltaire: ...Young of Cookham, gave last year when the question was raised about the Advisory Committee on Business Appointments’ sharp letter to the Foreign Secretary when he resigned about the way in which Boris Johnson broke the Ministerial Code in three places within three days of resigning. The noble Lord extremely carefully stressed that the Ministerial Code is an honour code and depends upon...
