Queen’s Speech - Debate (5th Day) (21 Oct 2019)

Lord Truscott: ...electorate a say on the form of Brexit now proposed. As a historian, though not as distinguished a one as many noble Lords in the Chamber today, I will make a couple of historical allusions. First, Boris Johnson should beware of what happened to Charles I when he tried to bypass Parliament and rule from 1629 to 1640 with his eleven years’ tyranny, a historical period mentioned by the...

Brexit - Motion to Take Note (19 Oct 2019)

Lord Puttnam: ..., I will restrict myself to just two of the recurring fantasies that we are currently forced to listen to. The first is that the country will somehow find itself united under a Government led by Boris Johnson. As even his friends concede, Mr Johnson is an almost uniquely divisive and untrusted figure. While I would argue that remainers tend to be less viscerally unforgiving than their...

Prime Minister’s Statement (19 Oct 2019)

Boris Johnson: I must confess that I am disappointed by the tone the right hon. Gentleman has taken today, because I had thought that he might rise to the occasion and see what the electorate—and, I believe, his own electorate—broadly want us to do, which is to get Brexit done. I thought he would wish to reflect the will of the people who voted for Brexit in such numbers in 2016 and have waited for a...

Written Ministerial Statements — Prime Minister: Brexit Deal (19 Oct 2019)

Boris Johnson: Statement that political agreement has been reached and that the United Kingdom has concluded an agreement with the European Union under Article 50(2) of the Treaty on European Union. This is a statement, for the purposes of section 1 of the European Union (Withdrawal) Act (No. 2) 2019, that the United Kingdom has concluded an agreement with the European Union under Article 50(2) of the...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (4th Day) (17 Oct 2019)

Lord Razzall: ...election will come soon, so Her Majesty will have to start again. It is only fair to treat the content of the gracious Speech as part of the Government’s election manifesto, together with Boris Johnson’s speech to the Tory conference and the Chancellor’s financial statement. As a Liberal Democrat, I am obviously glad that the Prime Minister and the Chancellor are answering calls...

Questions to the Mayor of London — Advertising in schools (1): Advertising in schools (1) (17 Oct 2019)

Tom Copley: How many schools in London are known to feature the Anomaly Group digital advertising billboards ( d-about-brexit-propaganda-shown-in-primary-schools/25/09/), highlighted by Stella Creasy MP’s question to the Government?

Queen’s Speech - Debate (3rd Day) (16 Oct 2019)

Lord Collins of Highbury: My Lords, like many other noble Lords, I want to open briefly on Brexit. I cannot do more than repeat the words of Boris Johnson to the 1922 Committee an hour ago when he said: “We are close to the summit … but it is still shrouded in mist”. That is exactly where we are today. I hope that we will be able to have proper scrutiny of any proposed deal and that this House will have a full...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (2nd Day) (15 Oct 2019)

Lord Desai: ...several times. However, we are where we are. I might be completely wrong—and I see that the noble Lord, Lord Kerr, is in his place, so I speak with some trepidation—but I believe that Boris Johnson has introduced a certain logical distinction to the Northern Ireland problem, and it is worth thinking about. That logical distinction is between the common market and the customs union. It...

Debate on the Address: [1st Day] (14 Oct 2019)

Angela Crawley: .... This Queen’s Speech was delivered against a backdrop of chaos and a political crisis that we have never seen before. It was nothing more than an expensive distraction from the shambles that is Boris Johnson’s premiership. While I am more than happy to pay tribute to the hon. Members for North East Derbyshire (Lee Rowley) and for Truro and Falmouth (Sarah Newton), who opened the...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (1st Day): Motion to Adjourn (14 Oct 2019)

Baroness Smith of Basildon: ...response. Perhaps he will say, “You may think that, but I couldn’t possibly comment”. This was an unusual Queen’s Speech. We were expecting great things, given that Prime Minister Johnson tried, and failed, to have an unprecedented five weeks’ preparation rather than the usual five days. Normally, a Queen’s Speech comes after an election as an opportunity for the Prime Minister...

Scottish Parliament: No-deal Brexit (Medicine Supplies) (10 Oct 2019)

Nicola Sturgeon: ...policy of the Prime Minister and others. It is beyond belief, particularly in light of the comments from Dame Sally Davies, that Jackson Carlaw and the Scottish Conservatives seem happy to back Boris Johnson in taking the UK out of the European Union with no deal. I do not think that people in Scotland will readily forgive them for that.

Scottish Parliament: Challenge Poverty Week (10 Oct 2019)

...everything that we can to tackle poverty. The continuation of the seemingly rapid acceleration towards a no-deal Brexit makes it all the more obvious that we need to get powers out of the hands of Boris Johnson and his ilk and into the hands of this Parliament so that we do not have to put up with Tory welfare cuts any more, because we can take the right decisions here in the first place...

Scottish Parliament: Brexit (New Agreement) (9 Oct 2019)

Annabelle Ewing: the President of the European Council, who cited a “blame game” being played by the UK Government. Does the cabinet secretary share my belief that that briefing simply represented Boris Johnson’s and the Tories’ attempt to shift the blame for the Brexit fiasco to anyone but themselves?

Scottish Parliament: No-deal Brexit (Possible Disruptions at NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde) (9 Oct 2019)

Johann Lamont: I am sure that the cabinet secretary will agree that we cannot believe a word that Prime Minister Boris Johnson says, especially in relation to his promise that Brexit would bring the national health service an extra £350 million a week. Does the cabinet secretary agree that, in stark contrast to that promise, Brexit uncertainty and the threat of there being no deal have put the NHS and...

Scottish Parliament: European Union Citizens (Assistance to Stay) (9 Oct 2019)

Jenny Gilruth: ...more security and peace of mind for thousands of my constituents if the Tories scrapped the scheme? If they will not scrap it, does the minister agree that voters should have the chance to throw Boris Johnson’s party out of number 10 and to decide Scotland’s future as an independent member of the European Union?

Written Answers — Prime Minister: Prime Minister: Chief Scientific Advisers (8 Oct 2019)

Boris Johnson: I have regular meetings with ministerial colleagues, officials and others.

Written Answers — Prime Minister: Yemen: Armed Conflict (7 Oct 2019)

Boris Johnson: In conversations about the situation in the region with my counterparts, I have reiterated the UK’s support for the UN-led political process on Yemen. On 26 September, the UK co-hosted a political event at the UN General Assembly to coordinate the international community’s support for the UN-led peace process and endorse the UN Special Envoy Martin Griffiths’ plan to begin wider...

Brexit: Negotiations - Statement (3 Oct 2019)

Baroness Smith of Basildon: ...opposite, the Government really wanted to strike a deal with the EU. Having patiently awaited the result of the Conservative Party leadership contest, our EU partners were promised certainty by Mr Johnson. The de facto Deputy Prime Minister, Mr Gove, tells us that the new Cabinet Brexit sub-committee has had dozens of meetings over the summer, leading to a new plan for the Irish border...
