5. Debate on the Climate Change, Environment, and Infrastructure Committee Report: 'The future of bus and rail in Wales' (18 Jan 2023)

Jenny Rathbone: ...The economy Minister was unable to elucidate us in any shape or form yesterday, so I'd be grateful if the Deputy Minister could indicate whether there's been any glimmer of light as to whether the Rishi Sunak Government is taking this issue more seriously. Because it really is a justice issue, as well as something that should be given his attention if he wants to hold the UK together. So,...

Scottish Parliament: Oil and Gas Exploration (18 Jan 2023)

Audrey Nicoll: During last week’s Prime Minister’s questions, Rishi Sunak committed to supporting the north-east energy sector.

Scottish Parliament: Green Freeports (18 Jan 2023)

Jamie Halcro Johnston: ...that the Opportunity Cromarty Firth and Forth Ports bids were successful. They will be major boosts to their local and regional economies.

Prime Minister: Engagements (18 Jan 2023)

Rishi Sunak: I know Members across the House will be as shocked and appalled as I am about the case of David Carrick. The abuse of power is truly sickening, and our thoughts are with his victims.

There will be no place to hide for those who use their position to intimidate women and...

We did it with the creation of the garden cities between the wars and with the creation of Milton Keynes since the Second World War.

Vaughan Gething: ...UK when we were part of the European Union, then the Conservatives got rid of them after a different period of time. What's now being proposed isn't the same as what was originally proposed when Rishi Sunak co-authored or sponsored a policy paper. The prospectus that we've got is clear about including fair work, and that's got to be made clear as part of the—[Inaudible.]—and...

Scottish Parliament: Independence Referundum (10 Jan 2023)

Jim Fairlie: ...Should they determine on independence, no English party or politician would stand in their way, however much we might regret their departure.” Those are the words of Margaret Thatcher. Perhaps Rishi Sunak might reflect on that principle from one of his heroes. After all, he believes in mandates, and I know that he does because, on 15 December 2019, Reuters reported that, during his...

Trade (Australia and New Zealand) Bill - Second Reading ( 9 Jan 2023)

Baroness McIntosh of Pickering: this regard? The promise of open trade was, as I said, mentioned in the manifesto.

He made a commitment at that time that 50% of all publicly procured foods supplying local authorities, our schools, hospitals, prisons and defence...

Finance Bill - Second Reading (and remaining stages) (20 Dec 2022)

Lord Rogan: ...people at the bottom of the income ladder to keep more of their money will be an absolute priority for them. Air passenger duty has long been a major bugbear of mine, and I was pleased when Rishi Sunak announced in last year’s Budget that the rate of APD levied on domestic flights would be halved to £6.50 from April 2023. Had it been up to me, I would have abolished the tax altogether,...

Arts Council England: Regional Distribution of Funding - Motion to Take Note (15 Dec 2022)

Lord Berkeley of Knighton: ...would love to see, and I do not think it too big an ask. In some senses, in order to rob Peter to pay Paul, we have robbed them both. On many occasions in this House, I have commended the help that Rishi Sunak gave the creative industries, and I reiterate how grateful we were for that. But it seems crazy that the future of some of those big organisations, which received large amounts of...

Official Development Assistance - Motion to Take Note (15 Dec 2022)

Lord Collins of Highbury: ...area of broad, cross-party consensus, as highlighted by the noble Baroness, Lady Hodgson, but I fear that under the numerous Tory Prime Ministers we have had since—Boris Johnson, Liz Truss and Rishi Sunak—that consensus has broken down.
