European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill - Second Reading (13 Jan 2020)

Lord Lea of Crondall: .... George Orwell would have been proud of the doublethink. Finally, we are told that we have got to fly the union jack at the end of this month. The union jack is a flag that is being torn up by Boris Johnson. The scenario that is increasingly plausible about what could happen in Scotland, which my noble friend Lord Darling touched on, would mean that the St Andrew’s flag would go and we...

Written Answers — Prime Minister: SPAC Nation (13 Jan 2020)

Boris Johnson: I refer the Hon. Member to the contribution given by my Hon. Friend, the Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State at the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (Helen Whately) during the adjournment debate on Thursday 8 January 2020, Official Report, Col.584.

Queen’s Speech - Debate (4th Day) (9 Jan 2020)

Lord Lipsey: ...climate change. The advantage of social care is that it is entirely within our control. It does not have to depend on what other countries do; we can do it ourselves. I was genuinely pleased when Boris Johnson said very soon after the election that he had a fully prepared plan for social care. We have been looking forward to that after five promised Green Papers down the pan. In fact, I...

Scottish Parliament: Digital Connectivity (9 Jan 2020)

Paul Wheelhouse: ...—compared with a 21 per cent increase in the UK. I am aware that the UK Government has, belatedly, woken up to its responsibilities in this area. As part of his leadership campaign last summer, Boris Johnson pledged to deliver full fibre “to every home in the land” by 2025. By the December UK election, that promise had been watered down to a commitment to “roll out gigabit...

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 2) Act 2019 - Motion to Take Note (8 Jan 2020)

Baroness Ludford: ...must stop running away from the false promises that they have made and be honest with the public about what they have in store for them with their hard Brexit plan. It’s about time that Boris Johnson started being honest with our people, rather than hiding the true price of a hard Brexit. What do they have to hide?” I bat that question to the Minister, to answer if he would.

Queen’s Speech - Debate (3rd Day) (8 Jan 2020)

Lord Rogan: ...helped to put something much better in its place on Good Friday of that same year. Fast-forwarding to today and the actions of the latest Conservative Prime Minister to roll off the conveyer belt, Boris Johnson’s decision to renege on his public commitment not to annex Northern Ireland by placing a border in the Irish Sea after Brexit has had a profound impact on the psyche of the loyal...

Scottish Parliament: European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill (8 Jan 2020)

Michael Russell: ...protocol between the Scottish Government and the Scottish Parliament, and I hope that the UK Government—even at this late stage—will recognise the need to be part of that process. Last month, Boris Johnson and his Conservative Party suffered a heavy defeat in Scotland. The Tories lost more than half their MPs and now have barely 10 per cent of Scottish Westminster seats. Their Brexit...

Prime Minister: Engagements (8 Jan 2020)

Boris Johnson: I should begin by saying that, of course, we condemn the attack on Iraqi military bases hosting coalition forces. Iran should not repeat these reckless and dangerous attacks, but must instead pursue urgent de-escalation. I know that the thoughts of the House are also with our friends in Australia, as they tackle the bushfires, and with the families of those killed in the Ukrainian air crash....

Queen’s Speech - Debate (2nd Day) (Continued) (7 Jan 2020)

Lord King of Bridgwater: ...ever larger unless the world works together to agree positive remedies before it is too late. I am helped in this by a very interesting article written 12 years ago by a promising journalist called Boris Johnson, headed “Global over-population is the real issue”; we should forget global warming. In it, he expresses his dismay that, “no world statesmen have the guts to treat the issue...

Hammersmith Bridge - Question (7 Jan 2020)

Lord Foulkes of Cumnock: Does the Minister recall that, during the general election, Mr Boris Johnson pledged to consider building a bridge from Northern Ireland to Scotland, even though there are hundreds of tonnes of explosives in Beaufort’s Dyke, put there because it was supposedly a safe place? If the Government cannot keep Hammersmith Bridge open, how on earth are they going to manage to do that? Is this going...

Written Answers — Prime Minister: Climate Change (7 Jan 2020)

Boris Johnson: I want us to become the cleanest, greenest society on earth, and inspire countries around the world to follow our lead, and to continue building on the excellent progress this government has made in tackling climate change and improving our environment. The Committee will bring together ministers responsible for domestic and international climate change policy, provide a forum to hold...

Written Answers — Prime Minister: SPAC Nation (7 Jan 2020)

Boris Johnson: Details of ministerial meetings are published and available on the gov.uk website; no such Ministerial meeting took place.

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Government Budget (7 Jan 2020)

Derek Mackay: ...tax levels. Clearly, the UK Government’s decision to delay the UK budget once again will have profound consequences. Even with the clarity of now having a date—although, when it comes to Boris Johnson, we will believe it when we see it, because the Prime Minister told us that the budget would be in February but it is now to be in March—we need the detail on the block grant adjustment...

Written Ministerial Statements — Prime Minister: Oversight of Investigatory Powers (20 Dec 2019)

Boris Johnson: On 18 July 2019, the Government published new guidance titled “The Principles relating to the detention and interviewing of detainees overseas and the passing and receipt of intelligence relating to detainees”. This will replace the existing “Consolidated Guidance” with effect from 1 January 2020. The new guidance is being extended to include the National Crime Agency and S015...

Debate on the Address: [1st Day] (19 Dec 2019)

Boris Johnson: I responded instantly.

Scottish Parliament: Budget (19 Dec 2019)

...House of Commons. The UK Government was always playing politics with the budget. That has to stop, and I hope that it stops very quickly. I hope that even Murdo Fraser, with his blind loyalty to Boris Johnson and his Tory colleagues, will see how unacceptable it is for this Parliament not to be able to present and pass a budget. As far as the consequentials are concerned, I hope that...

Scottish Parliament: Referendums (Scotland) Bill (19 Dec 2019)

Neil Findlay: I regret deeply the election result last week. I believe that many of the working people who voted for Boris Johnson will soon become the victims of his divisive political agenda and philosophy. In Scotland, the SNP won the election convincingly—there is no doubt about that—but the SNP’s election pledges to lock Boris Johnson out of Downing Street and stop Brexit were, of course,...
