Economic Update - Statement (19 Oct 2022)

...in the growth plan and one of the most generous schemes in the world. It is a landmark policy for which I pay tribute to my predecessor, my right honourable friend the Member for Spelthorne (Kwasi Kwarteng), and it will support millions of people through a difficult winter, reducing inflation by up to 5%. I confirm today that the support we are providing between now and April next year...

Economic Responsibility and a Plan for Growth (19 Oct 2022)

Toby Perkins: I could not agree more. The right hon. Member for Spelthorne (Kwasi Kwarteng) is the first politician in history to have had to resign for doing what he said he was going to do, which was precisely what the Prime Minister said she was going to do. The mini-Budget was born of the recklessness of the previous Prime Minister having pursued so much, so confidently, with so little evidence. Make...

Social Housing (Regulation) Bill [HL] - Report: Amendment 1 (18 Oct 2022)

Lord Foster of Bath: ...advocated by numerous Conservative Ministers, past and present. I have a list of over 60 such statements by the Government as to the value of legally binding targets. I refer to just one, from Mr Kwasi Kwarteng MP, when he was the Business Secretary, two posts ago. He said two years ago: “Legislation has really shaped everyone’s approach to decarbonisation given that without that...

Early General Election — [David Mundell in the Chair] (17 Oct 2022)

Ruth Jones: ...left people worried as they face higher mortgages and soaring costs, and have done nothing to show they understand how serious the situation is. On Friday, the right hon. Member for Spelthorne (Kwasi Kwarteng) was fired by the Prime Minister, who is his ideological bedfellow. They were in lockstep over every key element of Government policy announced since 6 September 2022. We do not...

Jeremy Hunt: ...expense in the growth plan and one of the most generous schemes in the world. It is a landmark policy for which I pay tribute to my predecessor, my right hon.

I confirm today that the support we are providing between now and April next year...

Replacement of the Chancellor of the Exchequer (17 Oct 2022)

Aaron Bell: ...hon. Friend has said, this will have been a difficult decision for the Prime Minister, both politically and personally because of her loyalty of my right hon. Friend the Member for Spelthorne (Kwasi Kwarteng). However, it is vital that we provide economic stability for the families and businesses in constituencies like mine and across the country. We have already seen that this morning...

Written Ministerial Statements — Treasury: Update on recent Bank of England asset purchases (12 Oct 2022)

Kwasi Kwarteng: The Bank of England decided to carry out temporary purchases of long-dated UK government bond (gilts) from 28 September through the Asset Purchase Facility (APF) on whatever scale is necessary to restore orderly conditions. These interventions will be strictly time limited, with auctions taking place until 14 October. I have therefore authorised an increase in the total size of the APF by...

Kwasi Kwarteng: Today I can inform the House that I have asked the Office for Budget Responsibility (OBR) to bring forward the date of their next forecast to 31 October.

Treasury: Topical Questions (11 Oct 2022)

Kwasi Kwarteng: This Government are relentlessly focused on growing the economy. Putin’s barbaric war in Ukraine continues to put pressure on gas prices so, with predictions of typical bills reaching between £4,000 and £6,500 a year, people needed immediate support to get them through this winter. Last month we set out the growth plan, which will focus on breaking out of the high-tax, low-growth cycle in...

Economy: The Growth Plan 2022 - Motion to Take Note (Continued) (10 Oct 2022)

Baroness Wheatcroft: ..., successive Governments have talked this talk. The problem has been delivery. There have been numerous initiatives. George Osborne cut corporation tax and raised the investment allowance, just as Kwasi Kwarteng has done. It did not increase investment levels. He announced the creation of 26 new or extended enterprise zones. The productivity gap remained. Nevertheless, we are now promised...

Economy: The Growth Plan 2022 - Motion to Take Note (10 Oct 2022)

Baroness Smith of Basildon: ...this House had risen for the Conference Recess, the new Chancellor made his first Statement to House of Commons—and what a Statement it was. Then, and in the days that followed, Liz Truss and Kwasi Kwarteng set out the package, which ended any pretence of fiscal responsibility or levelling up—or indeed of understanding the pressures on families, individuals and businesses across the...

Scottish Parliament: Cost of Living (Tenant Protection) (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (4 Oct 2022)

Paul McLennan: ...Lothian. This week is challenge poverty week and that is exactly why we are here with this bill. They say that a week is a long time in politics. It is an old saying but still so true—just ask Kwasi Kwarteng. The cost of living crisis has been building for a long time and it is hitting the poorest in our community. Again, that is why we are here today. Of course, the Russian invasion of...

Scottish Parliament: Covid Recovery Strategy (Fiscal Statement) (28 Sep 2022)

Bill Kidd: The mini budget announced by Kwasi Kwarteng prioritises lining the pockets of the rich through cutting corporation tax and cutting the 45 per cent tax rate that is paid by the wealthiest individuals in the UK. Does the Deputy First Minister agree that we need to focus on rebuilding our economy post-Covid, post-Brexit and in the current context of international uncertainty, rather than take...

Scottish Parliament: Impact of Pressures on Business (28 Sep 2022)

Michelle Thomson: ...gilt buying operation will be a temporary measure in the defences that are required against an incompetent Tory budget. Former monetary policy committee member Professor Blanchflower said that Kwasi Kwarteng has “crashed the ... markets ... I’ve never seen such raging incompetence, ever.” Does the cabinet secretary agree that Scottish people can simply no longer afford to pay the...

Scottish Parliament: National Health Service Waiting Times (28 Sep 2022)

Gillian Martin: ...who normally keep their own counsel. Not least, last night, as I was preparing for this debate, I read the words of former deputy governor of the Bank of England Sir Charlie Bean. He said that Kwasi Kwarteng’s measures “could finish”—I repeat, “finish”—“the NHS”. Wow! That warning should strike fear into every single one of us across England, Scotland, Northern Ireland...

Scottish Parliament: Scotland’s Population (27 Sep 2022)

Michelle Thomson: ...untrue; indeed, that is on a par with the statement, “The UK economy is strong and stable”. Therefore, I am delighted to support the Government motion. Last Friday’s budget statement by Kwasi Kwarteng and some of his subsequent interviews claimed that his approach is to tackle supply-side issues. That is why, he explained, he had to uncap bankers’ bonuses—so that London could...

Prayers - [Mr Speaker in the Chair] : The Growth Plan (23 Sep 2022)

Kwasi Kwarteng: I was very interested to hear the hon. Lady’s defence and I was very curiously affected when she said that Labour believes in wealth creation. That was the biggest fantasy I have ever heard. You cannot grow the economy if you keep taxing families. You cannot grow the economy if you see business as the enemy. We have to reiterate very clearly to our friends on the Opposition Benches that you...

Scottish Parliament: Oil and Gas Exploration Licences (21 Sep 2022)

Michael Matheson: ...face as a result of increasing energy costs; increasing extraction of oil and gas in the North Sea will not address that issue—that is not my comment but that of the United Kingdom Government. Kwasi Kwarteng, the former UK energy secretary, who is now Chancellor of the Exchequer, made such a point during a debate in the House of Commons earlier this year. The way to tackle the underlying...
