Brexit Negotiations (3 Oct 2019)

Boris Johnson: I must confess that I am disappointed by the tone and some of the remarks that the right hon. Gentleman has made, because I think that this is a very good basis for a deal. To take his points in turn, and to take his questions seriously, he asks what the advantage is of this deal over the previous withdrawal agreement. Simply, it is that the objections on all sides of the House to the...

Scottish Parliament: Brexit (3 Oct 2019)

Nicola Sturgeon: We found out this week that Jackson Carlaw will vote for whatever Boris Johnson tells him to vote for. The proposals that were published by the United Kingdom Government yesterday do not look, at this stage, like they will be acceptable to the European Union. The proposals also seem to break all the promises that were made to Ireland at the start of the Brexit process. Aside from all that,...

Brexit - Motion to Take Note (2 Oct 2019)

Lord Wallace of Saltaire: ...police forces and exchanges of data on crime and terrorism, and they did not tell us whether the UK should stay in the European space programme or the Joint European Torus on fusion research. Boris Johnson spoke this morning of the JET Culham research campus as a British asset, but there is a reason it is called the Joint European Torus, and it is not clear yet whether we are planning to...

Written Answers — Prime Minister: Prorogation (2 Oct 2019)

Boris Johnson: Ministers acted in good faith to bring forward a Queen’s Speech, in the belief that prorogation was lawful, with which the High Court agreed. Ultimately the Supreme Court disagreed it was lawful, while not questioning the motives of Ministers.

By embedding energy and climate change in the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, we are ensuring that supporting clean growth and taking global action to tackle climate change is joined up with our support for business to invest, innovate and grow.

Brexit: Positions on the Pound - Statement (30 Sep 2019)

Baroness Kramer: ...? Does he consider it to be a pure coincidence or one worth exploring that many of those short sellers—I think they take the name of “vultures” by their own choice—were also donors to Boris Johnson’s leadership campaign and are donors to the Tory party? Does that need examination?

Questions to the Mayor of London — New Prime Minister and Heathrow Airport: New Prime Minister and Heathrow Airport (27 Sep 2019)

Siân Berry: Former Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, said in 2015 that he would: “lie down in front of those bulldozers and stop the building, stop the construction of that third runway,” at Heathrow Airport. Since Boris Johnson became Prime Minister, I have called on him to stick to this pledge. Have you?

Business of the House: Principles of Democracy and the Rights of the Electorate (26 Sep 2019)

Kevin Foster: ...—people had better consider who reflects their principles and their choices. When they do that, they will inevitably conclude that my right hon. Friend the Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson) is far more likely to deliver what they want than the right hon. Member for Islington North (Jeremy Corbyn). Question put and agreed to. Resolved, That this House has considered...

Use of Language to Create a Safe Environment - Statement (26 Sep 2019)

Baroness Smith of Basildon: bring in the Brexit that she so opposed was, I thought, tacky and unpleasant. We all have to take care regarding our language and behaviour. Abuse in politics is not new—it did not start with Boris Johnson—but yesterday the Prime Minister sank to a new low. Those who have been Members of Parliament or advisers, or have had to see members of the public, understand the difference...

Scottish Parliament: Independence Referendums (Two-thirds Majority Requirement) (26 Sep 2019)

Alex Rowley: ...said that any question should be tested, regardless whether there was a referendum three or four years before that used the same question. Has the cabinet secretary heard of a politician called Boris Johnson, who ignores the advice of experts? Will the cabinet secretary listen and will he allow us to work together to introduce a bill that we can have confidence in?

Business of the House (25 Sep 2019)

Jacob Rees-Mogg: ...sort of tyrants are we that we are willing to go to the British people and say, “Ladies and gentlemen, you choose: do you want my right hon. Friend the Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson) or the right hon. Member for Islington North (Jeremy Corbyn)?” We know why the Opposition are running away from a general election and are so scared of it. They do not back their...

Prime Minister's Update (25 Sep 2019)

Boris Johnson: The right hon. Gentleman asked several questions, and I will try to deal with them in order. On the first point, my right hon. and learned Friend the Attorney General made it absolutely clear that this is a judgment with which he disagrees, although of course he respects the judgment of the Supreme Court. On the second point, about the Benn-Burt Act, I will say what I am sure the Leader of...

Spending Round 2019 - Motion to Take Note (25 Sep 2019)

Lord Liddle: ...state because of the demographic challenge. This is going to be difficult if Brexit goes ahead because, even if we avoid no deal, which we have legislated against, the kind of medium-term deal that Boris Johnson has in mind—the Canada-plus, free trade agreement—is not the smooth Brexit that the economic forecasts of the OBR have relied upon. It is a much tougher, harder Brexit than the...

Questions to the Mayor of London — No-Deal Brexit & London’s economy: No-Deal Brexit & London’s economy (25 Sep 2019)

Sadiq Khan: No. Anybody who is not willing to stand up to Boris Johnson’s [Prime Minister] no-deal Brexit is unfit to be a Member of the Assembly let alone a Londoner. It is quite clear that no deal would be catastrophic for jobs, for growth, for families. Look at what the [Operation] Yellowhammer document published last night in full says. In the short term â€‘‑
