Ukraine: Tactical Nuclear Weapons - Motion to Take Note (1 Dec 2022)

Lord Skidelsky: ...I shall say it again. This disagreement can be stated in one sentence: the Government’s policy is a war policy; I support a peace policy. I shall try to justify that. The then Foreign Secretary, Liz Truss, stated on 27 April: “We will keep going further and faster to push Russia out of the whole of Ukraine.” This policy has been repeatedly restated by government spokesmen. It is...

Procurement Bill [HL] - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 91 (30 Nov 2022)

Lord Alton of Liverpool: ...companies with credible links to the genocide taking place in the Uighur region. I am not using that word in a rhetorical way. It was a word used by the former Foreign Secretary and Prime Minister, Liz Truss; it was her word that “genocide” was under way in Xinjiang. It is a word that Secretary of State Blinken has used in describing events there, and many others have, too. Both...

Autumn Statement 2022 - Motion to Take Note (29 Nov 2022)

Lord Tunnicliffe: .... The NHS and other vital public services are on their knees, despite the highest tax burden in 70 years. The Autumn Budget has increased that burden further still to plug the black hole opened by Liz Truss and Kwasi Kwarteng. Eleven fiscal rules have been broken in 12 years and the UK’s soaring debt interest payments, caused partly by that reckless mini-Budget, mean the goalposts have...

Scottish Parliament: Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill (29 Nov 2022)

Sarah Boyack: ...Committee will continue with its inquiry. The evidence thus far is on the record, and it has been powerful. Let us look at the bill. It was introduced by Jacob Rees-Mogg, who was then a minister in Liz Truss’s appalling and thankfully short-lived Government. It was not dumped as the Liz Truss-Kwasi Kwarteng budget was dumped, even though it will also damage businesses and hard-fought-for...

Procurement Bill [HL] - Report (1st Day): Amendment 1 (28 Nov 2022)

Lord Alton of Liverpool: ...uses cotton produced by a supplier that works in the controversial region”. That is in Xinjiang, where it is said that a million Muslims are incarcerated and where the former Prime Minister, Liz Truss, said that a genocide is under way. It continued: “Another £19m contract went to pharmaceutical firm China Meheco and £16.5m was paid to Sinopharm, both of which have been linked to...

Scottish Parliament: Primary Care (23 Nov 2022)

Sandesh Gulhane: First, when errors were made by Liz Truss and Kwasi Kwarteng, they resigned, unlike SNP ministers, who never take responsibility for anything. Secondly, I am not sure whether the health secretary looks around the world and sees that inflation is a global issue. Finally on the question that the cabinet secretary asked—[ Interruption .]

Public Duty Costs Allowance - Question (21 Nov 2022)

Lord Rennard: ..., we have a rapidly increasing number of ex-Prime Ministers. Three of them continue to sit as MPs. While Theresa May claims only a part of the ex-Prime Minister’s allowance, Boris Johnson and Liz Truss are entitled to claim up to £115,000 a year for as long as they say they are doing public duties, which may be for the rest of their lives. This is in addition to MPs’ office costs...

House of Lords (Peerage Nominations) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (18 Nov 2022)

Lord Howarth of Newport: ..., were again to flood the House with new creations, possibly ignoring objections to individual nominations by the House of Lords Appointments Commission—a fortiori, outgoing Prime Minister Liz Truss. I also thank the members of the existing Appointments Commission for their determination to maintain propriety in the appointments process. This Bill is one more measure in a programme of...

National Women’s Sports - Question for Short Debate (17 Nov 2022)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: ...in Trafalgar Square the day after the final was a momentous occasion and saw 7,000 fans celebrate with their heroes. My right honourable friend the Secretary of State and the former Prime Minister Liz Truss met the Lionesses at their training ground to congratulate them and were very proud to support the event in Trafalgar Square. However, as the noble Baroness, Lady Taylor of Bolton,...

Scottish Parliament: Brexit (Impact on Devolution) (17 Nov 2022)

Collette Stevenson: ...the democratic wishes of the people of Scotland. When I read the committee’s report, paragraph 49 jumped out at me. I will, for the benefit of members, read the quote, from the Boris Johnson and Liz Truss backing former minister Jacob Rees-Mogg. In a statement to the House of Commons, he said: “As we maximise the benefits of Brexit and transform the UK into the most sensibly regulated...

Britain’s Industrial Future (15 Nov 2022)

Emma Hardy: ...my frustration that the Government are playing hokey-cokey with Northern Powerhouse Rail, first putting it in their manifesto and then taking it out under Boris Johnson, then putting it in under Liz Truss and taking it out again under Rishi Sunak?

Scottish Parliament: Nursing (Industrial Action) (10 Nov 2022)

John Swinney: ...fundamental. That is why it is laughable for Douglas Ross to come here and raise those issues with me when, only seven weeks ago, he wanted me to cut tax during the folly that was taken forward by Liz Truss, which would have damaged public investment in our health service.

Scottish Parliament: Food Banks (10 Nov 2022)

John Swinney: I agree with Natalie Don, and my principal ally in providing me with material to support that position is none other than the chairman of the Scottish Conservative Party. Mr Craig Hoy said: “Liz Truss made the wrong decision in going for growth in the way that she did and I think there is a price tag attached to that. I think we have to be realistic about the consequence of that, which may...

Public Service Broadcasting: BBC Centenary - Motion to Take Note (3 Nov 2022)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: ...join others and reaffirm my earlier congratulations to the noble Lord, Lord Parkinson, on his bouncebackability. It is a good cause for celebration. Whatever the reason for his departure under the Truss regime changes, we all feel reassured by his return. This has been a wide-ranging debate, all about modernisation and modern media, and quite a lot about nostalgia. We should remind...

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

Lord Tunnicliffe: ...about the mini-Budget that it was announced less than six weeks ago yet managed to: crash the economy; lose Mr Kwarteng his job; be torn to pieces in record time, in such a public manner; and evict Liz Truss from Downing Street. As we heard during this debate, the damage done by the mini-Budget will not be undone for some time. This was an economic crisis made in Downing Street. Through...
