Scottish Parliament: Wellbeing Economy (United Kingdom Government Policies) (27 Mar 2024)

John Swinney: ...than it is in other parts of the United Kingdom? The kind of crude analysis that Murdo Fraser has just put to the cabinet secretary is as valid as his call was for us to follow the economics of Liz Truss.

Local Government Finances - Motion to Take Note (21 Mar 2024)

Lord Foster of Bath: ...have to reduce their decline? Some councils are better placed than others to sustain such services, so I turn to the issues impacting rural communities. In 2015, the then Defra Secretary, Liz Truss, claimed: “This Government … is committed … to ensuring the interests of rural communities and businesses are accounted for within our policies and programmes”. Four years after that...

1. Questions to the First Minister: Transferring Power and the Effective Functioning of Government (19 Mar 2024)

Mark Drakeford: Dirprwy Lywydd, I did think of referring this question to Liz Truss—[Laughter.]—but, not having had a reply, I'll say that my advice to my successor is to be bold, to use his time as First Minister, as I know he will, to do those ambitious, energetic and determined things, and to lead a Government in the great Welsh Labour radical tradition.

Spring Budget 2024 - Motion to Take Note (18 Mar 2024)

Lord Livermore: ...payments rise by an average of £220 every month. Yet, having crashed the economy, the Government seem not to have learned the lessons and are now apparently intent on re-running the disastrous Liz Truss experiment. As my noble friends Lady Lister of Burtersett and Lord Davies of Brixton said, at the end of his Budget Statement the Chancellor, reiterated by the Prime Minister as recently...

7. Welsh Conservatives Debate: UK Government budget (13 Mar 2024)

Cefin Campbell: all trotting out these wonderful projects, but expert analysis shows that there is £46 billion of unfunded commitments in the last budget, which is even higher than the kamikaze budget of Liz Truss and Kwasi Kwarteng. So, can you explain to me how that gaping black hole is going to be filled, or are we going to come to the obvious conclusion that this is just an election gimmick?

National Insurance Contributions (Reduction in Rates) (No.2) Bill (13 Mar 2024)

Scottish Parliament: Scotland’s Economy (13 Mar 2024)

Willie Rennie: ...have enveloped this country in chaos, from the independence referendum, which had a direct impact on the business community and our economy, to Brexit, Boris Johnson, the pandemic and the infamous Liz Truss budget. It has been a decade of political uncertainty, and the economy has been undermined. However, the Scottish policy context is important, too. The Scottish Government’s...

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Committee (7th Day) (Continued): Amendment 169 (12 Mar 2024)

Lord German: to be squared. Can the Minister confirm the delegated authority that the Secretary of State has given to Ministers for appointment of the role of board chair? Does it remain as it was when Liz Truss was the Secretary of State, because, on delegation to Ministers, the review said that Ministers “should be involved at every stage of a competition, including: agreeing the advertising and...

Income Tax (Charge) (12 Mar 2024)

Mohammad Yasin: ...have been some very difficult factors that have contributed to the weakness of our economy, such as the invasion of Ukraine and the pandemic, but far too many unforced errors have been made: the Liz Truss Budget catastrophe, which my constituents are still paying for; the £140 billion that Brexit is costing our economy—Brexit cost my constituents, on average, £2,000 each last year....

Income Tax (Charge) ( 7 Mar 2024)

Michael Shanks: ...without a single thought given to how it would be funded, although I now hear that has been downgraded to the Chancellor expressing an ambition, which apparently is different. It is perhaps how Liz Truss expressed an ambition to crash the economy not that long ago.

Higher Education - Motion to Take Note ( 7 Mar 2024)

Lord Wallace of Saltaire: ...and evidence, is to be resisted at all costs, including by people who work for systemically left-wing foundations, such as the Resolution Foundation. I am sure this is part of the deep state that Liz Truss warned us against. Research and innovation are extremely important. It is extremely important that we do not keep narrowing what is allowable to research to that which has an immediate...

Scottish Parliament: United Kingdom Spring Statement ( 7 Mar 2024)

Kenneth Gibson: Thank you, Presiding Officer , and I thank the First Minister for his answer. The toxic Tory legacy of Boris Johnson, Liz Truss and Rishi Sunak is that, for the first time, per capita incomes at the end of this UK Parliament will be lower than at its start. Does the First Minister agree with the Scottish Chambers of Commerce that the “overriding impression” is that the chancellor’s...

Foreign Affairs - Motion to Take Note ( 5 Mar 2024)

Lord Skidelsky: ...Russian GDP will expand by 2.2% this year, much faster than is predicted for the UK. There are two main reasons for this. The first is trade diversification. Far from having no place to hide, as Liz Truss, then Foreign Secretary, predicted on 31 January 2022, Mr Putin and his friends have found plenty of places to hide. Moscow has been able to pivot its oil exports towards Asia, now the...

5. Debate: The Local Government Settlement 2024-25 ( 5 Mar 2024)

Carolyn Thomas: Following the mishandling of the economy with 14 years of Tory austerity, a failed Brexit, COVID cronyism and rising inflationary pressures caused by the Liz Truss mini-budget, public services are on their knees. Local authorities are cut to the bone right across the UK, so they no longer have enough to deliver essential services, and in England are facing bankruptcy. George Osborne started...

Windrush - Motion to Take Note (29 Feb 2024)

Lord Woolley of Woodford: ...Ministers still alive and with us from the 1970s to come here, collectively, and sincerely apologise. They include John Major, Tony Blair, Gordon Brown, David Cameron, Theresa May, Boris Johnson, Liz Truss and Rishi Sunak. We need a collective, heartfelt apology for the damage caused, before it is too late.

Cabinet Office: House of Lords Appointments: Diversity (29 Feb 2024)

Andrew Gwynne: That is good progress, but can the Minister explain why her right hon. Friend the Member for South West Norfolk (Elizabeth Truss)—Liz of the 50-day reign—was allowed to award her mates for their part in her failure with jobs for life in the legislature? Is she proud of that?

Scottish Parliament: Local Government Finance (Scotland) Order 2024 [Draft] (28 Feb 2024)

Willie Rennie: any local authorities, his advisers or any officials in the Government, and probably without consulting any of the SNP back benchers who are here today. That process would probably make Liz Truss blush, because it was reckless and cavalier, and it drove a coach and horses right through the Verity house agreement. The Verity house agreement is as good as dead, and the minister...
