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: ...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 the...

Business of the House (26 Sep 2019)

Diana R. Johnson: I am pleased that Second Reading of the Domestic Abuse Bill will be next week, but I know that the Leader of the House is a stickler for procedure and doing things correctly. Will he therefore explain to me—a mere novice having been in the House for only 14 years—how the Government have already announced the statutory role of a domestic abuse commissioner, despite the pre-legislative...

International Climate Action (26 Sep 2019)

Andrea Leadsom: I regret to say that the 2030 target announced by the Labour party is simply not credible. Paul Johnson of the Institute for Fiscal Studies has said: “We need zero emissions. Getting there by 2050 is tough and expensive but feasible and consistent with avoiding most damaging climate change. Aiming for zero emissions by 2030 is almost certainly impossible, hugely disruptive and risks...

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

Baroness Smith of Basildon: ...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 here. It is...

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

Alex Rowley: ...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: ...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...

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

Lord Livermore: ...not accompanied by new economic forecasts from the Office for Budget Responsibility. Making such major spending decisions without the latest economic and fiscal forecasts is a risky move. As Paul Johnson, director of the Institute for Fiscal Studies, commented: “By making major spending decisions without having the most up-to-date forecasts for the economy and public finances, the...

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: ...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...

Iran (25 Sep 2019)

Gareth Johnson: Does the Secretary of State share my frustration that despite categoric assurances and promises from the Iranian Government, the Grace 1 tanker that was seized in Gibraltar was heading to Syria? Does he agree that this is just another example of why the Iranian Government are losing respect right around the world?

Brexit Readiness: Operation Yellowhammer (25 Sep 2019)

Gareth Johnson: It is essential that we prepare fully to avoid any congestion around the port of Dover that could be caused by lorry drivers arriving without the necessary customs paperwork. Could the Minister therefore please confirm that HMRC in particular is doing all it can in this regard, and specifically that it is recruiting and training sufficient numbers of staff to cope with the process?

Hacker House (25 Sep 2019)

Tom Watson: .... He is a man whose character renders him unsuitable and unfit for the office he holds. I want answers to these questions, but we all know the broader essential truth. We can all see who Boris Johnson is.

Legal Advice: Prorogation (25 Sep 2019)

Dr Caroline Johnson: My constituents voted to leave the European Union, and many of them have written to me since yesterday’s judgment concerned about whether that will be delivered. Can my right hon. Friend the Attorney General confirm that there is nothing in this judgment that will prevent us from leaving the EU on 31 October, as they voted for in the referendum?

Scottish Parliament: Climate Change (Emissions Reduction Targets) (Scotland) Bill (25 Sep 2019)

Daniel Johnson: There is no greater political cause than climate change, and there is nothing in which there is more urgent need for action. In that context, the bill is to be welcomed. It is vital that our action on tackling climate change be put on a legal footing, with clear and practical steps towards achievement of our goals. We cannot ignore the tenor of the debate and the calls to go further, although...
