Valedictory Debate (24 May 2024)

Nickie Aiken: ...Transport Secretary was ringing me up to say, “We are going to put pedicabs in the Transport Bill.” Obviously that did happen, but then my right hon. Friend the Member for Richmond (Yorks) (Rishi Sunak) became Prime Minister, and I will always be grateful to him and his team for putting pedicab regulation into the King’s Speech. I was absolutely delighted when that happened, and it...

Scottish Parliament: Europe Day 2024 (23 May 2024)

Alasdair Allan: ...potential for a new Government in Westminster, the tunnel vision on anything related to the EU or the single market looks to be firmly set to continue. Last month, both Keir Starmer and Rishi Sunak rejected the European Commission’s proposals for a post-Brexit youth mobility deal, for instance, which would have allowed those aged between 18 and 30 to live, study or work in one...

Scottish Parliament: First Minister’s Question Time: Michael Matheson (Complaint) (23 May 2024)

Anas Sarwar: ...the processes of the United Kingdom Parliament when it came to individual members of the Conservative Party. Let us not forget how Liz Truss was judged when she did the same, and let us see how Rishi Sunak will be judged when he puts party before country. Is it not the case that John Swinney and the Scottish National Party Government will be judged, too? I say to the First...

Prime Minister: Engagements (22 May 2024)

Rishi Sunak: I know the whole House will join me in remembering the victims of the horrific Manchester Arena bombing seven years ago today. Our thoughts are with them and their families. I pay tribute to Figen Murray, who joins us in the Gallery, for the courage and bravery of her campaigning in her son Martyn’s memory. I look forward to meeting her later today. I also add my personal welcome back to...

Infected Blood Inquiry Report (20 May 2024)

Rishi Sunak: I thank the right hon. and learned Gentleman for the collegiate tone in which he has responded to today’s report, and for his sincerity. He is right that it is irrefutably clear that an unconscionable injustice has been done—the result of a consistent and systemic failure by the state time and again, decade after decade. That is why I apologise wholeheartedly and unequivocally to every...

Written Answers — Prime Minister: Music Venues: Security (20 May 2024)

Rishi Sunak: My thoughts continue to be with all the victims of the terrible attack that took place in Manchester Arena in 2017.

Statement of Changes in Immigration Rules - Motion to Regret (14 May 2024)

Baroness Hamwee: ...income threshold as one of a number of items. I am going to quote a little from the report. We reminded readers of the Government’s commitment to family life, in the words of the Prime Minister, Rishi Sunak, who said: “Strong, supportive families make for more stable communities”. In a speech setting out his priorities for 2023, he said that, by being overly restrictive, family...

Inadmissible Asylum Seekers - Question for Short Debate ( 9 May 2024)

Lord Rogan: ...100 Gardai officers to police the border—the only land border between the United Kingdom and a member state of the EU. However, they now appear to have backed away from this. In the meantime, Rishi Sunak has made clear that His Majesty’s Government refuse to take back any refugees from the Republic of Ireland unless France agrees to take back refugees who crossed the English Channel to...

3. Debate: Stage 4 of the Senedd Cymru (Members and Elections) Bill ( 8 May 2024)

Mike Hedges: ...lots of referenda. I've lost more than I've won and I've been very unhappy with referenda, because they bring really complicated questions down to a 'yes' or a 'no', and that is a serious problem. Rishi Sunak could give us a referendum now on his Government—it's called a general election—and everybody on the Labour benches would love to have that. Choosing a new electoral system is not...

Finance (No. 2) Bill: Clause 1 - Income tax charge for tax year 2024-25 ( 8 May 2024)

James Murray: ..., the idea that the economy is turning a corner is simply not reflected in reality. The truth is that our economy is smaller per person than it was when the right hon. Member for Richmond (Yorks) (Rishi Sunak) became Prime Minister. Our country is forecast by the OECD to have economic growth of just 1% next year, weaker than that in every other G20 country except Russia. If, under the...

Written Answers — Ministry of Justice: Asylum: Rwanda ( 7 May 2024)

Stephen Kinnock: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, with reference to the speech entitled Prime Minister Rishi Sunak’s statement on the plan to stop the boats, published by the Prime Minister’s office on 22 April 2024, what the evidential basis is for the statement that the judiciary have identified 150 judges who could provide over 5,000 sitting days to deal with challenges to the removal of...

10. Short Debate: Gaza — A Welsh response ( 1 May 2024)

Sioned Williams: ...Parliament, there was a debate held calling for an immediate ceasefire. During that debate the former First Minister Humza Yousaf said that he had sent a letter from the Scottish Government to both Rishi Sunak and Keir Starmer asking them to call for an immediate ceasefire. Has the Welsh Government done the same?

8. Plaid Cymru Debate: Cap on political donations ( 1 May 2024)

Lee Waters: ...the Chancellor, and even the former Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, were not just accused of breaking the ministerial code but were judged to have actually broken the ministerial code. But what did Rishi Sunak and the Welsh Conservatives have to say about that? Not a dicky-bird. So, we can all see through their double standards, but the reason I'm speaking this afternoon is because we're...

Scottish Parliament: Women’s State Pensions (Compensation) ( 1 May 2024)

Kevin Stewart: ...maybe, a Labour Government to follow—gets away with this outrage against the WASPI women, it will be coming for the pensions of the rest of us next. Just today, the UK Prime Minister, Rishi Sunak, refused to rule out raising the state pension age to 75. What happened to the WASPI women sets the stage for what Westminster may well do next. If it gets away with its outrageous...

Scottish Parliament: Motion of No Confidence ( 1 May 2024)

Jackie Baillie: .... First, it was Boris Johnson, but partygate was his undoing. Then we had Liz Truss for all of 50 days, which resulted in interest rates rising and mortgages spiralling out of control. Now we have Rishi Sunak presiding over the country’s continuing decline. The last two were, of course, appointed by the Tory party and not elected by the country. The parallels with the current SNP...

Prime Minister: Engagements ( 1 May 2024)

Rishi Sunak: I know the thoughts of the whole House are with the people of Hainault in east London following yesterday’s appalling attacks. Such violence has no place on our streets. It is absolutely heartbreaking that a teenage boy has died, and I cannot imagine what his family are going through. We send them our heartfelt condolences and offer our very best wishes to all those injured. I reiterate my...

Scottish Parliament: Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974 (50th Anniversary) (30 Apr 2024)

Richard Leonard: ...times, from David Cameron’s mendacious claim that “excessive health and safety culture” was “an albatross around the neck of ... businesses” to Rishi Sunak’s odious attack, just 10 days ago, on the so-called “sick note culture”. Well, I have an answer for Rishi Sunak: start making workplaces healthier, end the long-hours culture,...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Members' Statements: Personal Independence Payments: Proposed Reform (30 Apr 2024)

Mark Durkan: the PIP process can be and often is, disability benefits in general offer a safety net: assurance from the welfare state that society's most vulnerable will be protected. Recent proposals from Rishi Sunak fly in the face of that objective. The Tories' proposed reform of the system, including stopping regular cash payments, is an immoral attack on those with disabilities. If, in turn,...
