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

Lord Alton of Liverpool: ...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 Hikvision and...

Energy Bills Support Scheme: Northern Ireland (30 Nov 2022)

Carla Lockhart: ...grasp. The promise of an additional £200 in recognition of our dependence on heating oil also remains unpaid. The previous Prime Minister, the right hon. Member for South West Norfolk (Elizabeth Truss), assured the people of Northern Ireland that the payment would be issued in November. Today, November draws to a close, but there has been no payment. Hard-pressed families budgeting for...

Women and Equalities: Conversion Therapy: Legislation (30 Nov 2022)

Kirsten Oswald: Last year, the right hon. Member for South West Norfolk (Elizabeth Truss)—the most recent former Prime Minister—described conversion therapy as an “abhorrent practice” in the ministerial foreword to the Government’s consultation on banning conversion therapy. Some 11% of trans people in the UK report having been subjected to that so-called therapy by their own families, and those...

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

Lord Tunnicliffe: ...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 been...

Ministerial Code (29 Nov 2022)

Chris Bryant: ...and Foreign Secretaries ago, when the then Home Secretary, the right hon. Member for Witham (Priti Patel), and the then Foreign Secretary, the right hon. Member for South West Norfolk (Elizabeth Truss), went, they decided that they had gone in their ministerial capacities. A colleague of the Minister said that they had gone in a ministerial capacity because the Home Secretary has...

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

Sarah Boyack: ...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...

Written Answers — Cabinet Office: Former Ministers: Redundancy Pay (23 Nov 2022)

Lord Campbell-Savours: To ask His Majesty's Government whether ministers appointed by Prime Minister Elizabeth Truss who were either (1) demoted, or (2) dismissed on the appointment of Prime Minister Rishi Sunak are entitled to (a) severance, or (b) any other form of payment for the period during which they were in office.

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 .]

Scottish Parliament: Cost of Living: Mortgage Rescue Scheme (23 Nov 2022)

Alex Cole-Hamilton: ...for it. It is undeniable that the cost of living crisis is having a huge impact on the budgets of households throughout the country. The Conservative Government’s disastrous mini-budget under Truss and Kwarteng brought chaos to the markets and exacerbated the crisis at the worst possible moment. It is left to ordinary people to pick up the pieces and pay the price. Dreadful Conservative...

Justice: Strengthening Human Rights: Discussions with Cabinet Colleagues (22 Nov 2022)

Stuart McDonald: ...class could have designed a more sensible piece of legislation than his Bill of Rights. Everybody from human rights campaigners to big city lawyers are saying so—indeed, even the disastrous Truss Administration understood that fact. Given the universal criticism, what exactly is it that makes him think he can just carry on regardless, without even a further consultation?

Autumn Statement Resolutions - Energy (Oil and Gas) Profits Levy (21 Nov 2022)

Richard Drax: ...easing have come to an end, and that chicken really has come home to roost. Now, in recession, surely it is time to be radical. My right hon. Friends the Members for South West Norfolk (Elizabeth Truss) and for Spelthorne (Kwasi Kwarteng) had the right idea, but poor timing and presentation saw it flounder. At least they attempted to break with the current orthodoxy, which sees the...

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 McDonald of Salford: ...wrong. Most novel is setting aside the requirement for expertise and experience. The appointment of Peers with no experience or record of achievement cannot plausibly be defended. Mr Johnson and Ms Truss were no respecters of convention. I urge the Prime Minister to give greater weight to the merits of their proposed nominations than to courtesy to his two immediate predecessors before he...

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

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: ...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, said, it is also...

Backbench Business: Persecution of Christians — [Dame Maria Miller in the Chair] (17 Nov 2022)

Fiona Bruce: ...special rapporteur on FoRB, and it was published in April. Its recommendations were fully accepted by the then Foreign Secretary, my right hon. Friend the Member for South West Norfolk (Elizabeth Truss), in a written statement, and it highlighted that there is outstanding Truro work to be done. It included as a key recommendation the production of a comprehensive operational action plan...

Business of the House (17 Nov 2022)

Thangam Debbonaire: ...cannot just pick and choose which votes they will respect and which they will ignore, so will they uphold the will of this House? Will the right hon. Members for South West Norfolk (Elizabeth Truss) and for Spelthorne (Kwasi Kwarteng) give back from their ministerial severance the £500 average mortgage increase that they caused? The new Prime Minister said he would lead a Government of...

War in Ukraine: Illicit Finance — [Clive Efford in the Chair] (17 Nov 2022)

Catherine West: ...many cases, the Government do not have the basics in place to oppose them. Even the former Foreign Secretary—and briefly Prime Minister— the right hon. Member for South West Norfolk (Elizabeth Truss) slammed the Government’s record as a “decade of drift” on Russia. Labour maintains that, in expanding our regime against Russia, the Government have been taking time that the people...

Autumn Statement (17 Nov 2022)

Jeremy Hunt: tribute to my predecessor, my right hon. Friend the Member for Spelthorne (Kwasi Kwarteng), and to the former Prime Minister, my right hon. Friend the Member for South West Norfolk (Elizabeth Truss), for their leadership in this area. This winter, we will stick with their plan to spend £55 billion to help households and businesses with their energy bills—one of the largest support...
