Autumn Statement Resolutions - Energy (Oil and Gas) Profits Levy (21 Nov 2022)

Richard Drax: ..., and that chicken really has come home to roost. Now, in recession, surely it is time to be radical. My right hon. Friends the Members for South West Norfolk (Elizabeth Truss) and for Spelthorne (Kwasi Kwarteng) had the right idea, but poor timing and presentation saw it flounder. At least they attempted to break with the current orthodoxy, which sees the Government hobbled by...

Business of the House (17 Nov 2022)

Thangam Debbonaire: ...choose which votes they will respect and which they will ignore, so will they uphold the will of this House? Will the right hon. Members for South West Norfolk (Elizabeth Truss) and for Spelthorne (Kwasi Kwarteng) give back from their ministerial severance the £500 average mortgage increase that they caused? The new Prime Minister said he would lead a Government of “integrity,...

Autumn Statement (17 Nov 2022)

Jeremy Hunt: ...help our most vulnerable citizens with the cost of living. One of the biggest worries for families is energy bills. I pay tribute to my predecessor, my right hon. Friend the Member for Spelthorne (Kwasi Kwarteng), and to the former Prime Minister, my right hon. Friend the Member for South West Norfolk (Elizabeth Truss), for their leadership in this area. This winter, we will stick with...

Management of the Economy and Ministerial Severance Payments (15 Nov 2022)

Alex Burghart: The House will be aware that my right hon. Friends the Members for South West Norfolk (Elizabeth Truss) and for Spelthorne (Kwasi Kwarteng) served continuously as Members of Parliament for long periods before taking up the offices of Prime Minister and Chancellor of the Exchequer—in the case of the former Prime Minister, for 10 years, and in the case of the former Chancellor, for four. Let...

Financial Markets: Stability - Motion to Take Note (3 Nov 2022)

Lord Bilimoria: ...What is your great country doing to itself?” On 24 October, on Diwali day, our first south Asian-Indian Prime Minister, Rishi Sunak, was appointed. What happened on 23 September? Liz Truss and Kwasi Kwarteng’s plan was a good plan with its intentions for growth and to cut taxes. When I was president of the CBI, I constantly said to Rishi Sunak, when he was Chancellor, “Please...

Scottish Independence and the Scottish Economy (2 Nov 2022)

Steven Bonnar: ...has gone—Brexit continues to see to that. The previous Prime Minister, the right hon. Member for South West Norfolk (Elizabeth Truss), and her Chancellor, the right hon. Member for Spelthorne (Kwasi Kwarteng), assisted with that in a spectacular fashion for all the world to see. The Tory cost of living crisis is spiralling completely out of control. It is putting lives and livelihoods...

Public Sector Pay: Proposed Strike Action — [Sir Edward Leigh in the Chair] (1 Nov 2022)

Claudia Webbe: ...overdraft at the Bank. The Government can spend without borrowing from private markets. A month ago, the bankers’ Budget presented by the former Chancellor, the right hon. Member for Spelthorne (Kwasi Kwarteng), caused a financial market crisis that led the Bank of England to bail out the Government to the tune of £65 billion. Any excuse that the Government might use for not raising...

Ukraine - Statement (1 Nov 2022)

Lord Purvis of Tweed: ..., more overseas development assistance will be spent domestically than bilaterally abroad. That is unprecedented. I hope the Minister will say that this is not correct. It was disturbing to read Kwasi Kwarteng’s tweet in June, posted when he was BEIS Secretary, saying on supplying defence equipment: “My Department has contributed to the effort by surrendering climate finance and...

Public Bill Committee: Financial Services and Markets Bill: Clause 62 - Liability of payment service providers for fraudulent transactions (1 Nov 2022)

Tulip Siddiq: ...schemes, but we are deeply disappointed that the Bill does nothing to strengthen fraud prevention. When asked about fraud in February, the former Chancellor, the right hon. Member for Spelthorne (Kwasi Kwarteng), claimed that fraud and scams are not something that “people experience in their daily lives”, which is tone-deaf. Essentially, he dismissed crime as inconsequential. In the...

50th Anniversary of the Expulsion of Asians from Uganda - Motion to Take Note (27 Oct 2022)

Lord Collins of Highbury: ...from physical attack during the demonstration that was held outside that town hall, made up of, sadly, hundreds of people in our community. Of course, Spelthorne is now the constituency of Kwasi Kwarteng, which shows how communities and people have obviously changed. We have to reflect on that. It was a pleasure to hear my noble friend Lord Bach speak of his experience in Leicester, where...

Backbench Business: Colleges Week 2022 — [Mrs Sheryll Murray in the Chair] (27 Oct 2022)

Peter Aldous: ...where they are badly needed. The consortium has the objective of maximising those opportunities and removing barriers that might get in the way. My right hon. Friend the Member for Spelthorne (Kwasi Kwarteng) made a presentation to the consortium when he was Energy Minister, and my hon. Friend the Member for Brentwood and Ongar (Alex Burghart) joined us in the summer, when he was skills...

Questions to the Mayor of London — Government mini budget 2022: Government mini budget 2022 (25 Oct 2022)

Sadiq Khan: ...he did not want to be embarrassed by not being in the lunchtime and having his lunch. Free school meals for primary school children. Reverse the worst parts of the mini‑Budget that [The Rt Hon] Kwasi Kwarteng [MP, Chancellor of the Exchequer] and [The Rt Hon] Liz Truss [MP, Prime Minister] announced recently. All these things are causing havoc on the markets. The pound collapsing means...

Carer’s Leave Bill (21 Oct 2022)

Wendy Chamberlain: ...are still broadly in favour of wanting to get more people, especially the over-50s, back into work—as set out in the growth plan of the former Chancellor, the right hon. Member for Spelthorne (Kwasi Kwarteng). I agree with the Government on that, although I oppose any plans that force people into unsuitable work through the threat of sanctions or benefit cuts. The good news for the...

Cost of Living: Public Well-being - Motion to Take Note (20 Oct 2022)

Lord Howarth of Newport: My Lords, the cost of living crisis, so catastrophically intensified by Liz Truss and Kwasi Kwarteng, has been developing for a long time. It was an illusion that inflation had been abolished. Eventually, printing money on an industrial scale by quantitative easing unleashed inflation and central bankers were wrong to suppose it would be transitory. Inflation generates inequality. More than a...

Unemployment Figures - Question (20 Oct 2022)

Lord Browne of Ladyton: ...by 80,000 people, and of the 640,000 who have become inactive since the onset of the pandemic, 55% say that they are long-term sick. Instead of tinkering about at the edges of this problem, as Kwasi Kwarteng was intending to do with benefits, all of the informed experts who write extensively on this are saying that we need significant investment in health, social care and childcare to...

Ban on Fracking for Shale Gas Bill (19 Oct 2022)

Stephanie Peacock: ...energy crisis will not work. Implementing the process is expensive and returns simply not enough to make a significant difference to our energy sector. It was the right hon. Member for Spelthorne (Kwasi Kwarteng) who stated that fracking “won’t materially affect the wholesale market price”. It would do nothing to cut bills, costing far more than renewables, and it is unsafe. Even...
