Scottish Parliament: Cost of Living (Support) (29 Sep 2022)

Christine Grahame: Since lodging my question, as the cabinet secretary said, the pressures on my constituents have been compounded by the terrifying economic policies of Liz Truss, with the value of the pound plummeting—which adds more cost to all imports, including food—and interest rates skyrocketing. Does the cabinet secretary therefore share my additional concerns for my rural constituents, who were...

Scottish Parliament: Cost Crisis (29 Sep 2022)

Elena Whitham: ...such as food, shelter and fuel. Does she agree that the Westminster Tory UK Government’s crashing of the economy can only make the situation worse, and that missing-in-action Prime Minister Liz Truss must ditch the policies from last week and think again?

Scottish Parliament: European Union (Nature Protection) (29 Sep 2022)

Mr Mark Ruskell: The Truss budget has unleashed chaos on households, but the United Kingdom Government has also threatened to renege on vital protections for our natural world, which have been developed over 40 years when we were part of the European Union. Scotland did not vote for Brexit. We did not vote for this catastrophic UK Government or its malicious and deeply damaging attacks on nature. RSPB...

Scottish Parliament: National Health Service (Winter Pressures) (29 Sep 2022)

Christine Grahame: The disastrous economic policies of Liz Truss—the lady has indicated that she is not for turning—pile even more pressure on folk who face terrifying energy bills. The pound is tumbling in value against the dollar and the euro, so every import, including food, becomes even more costly. Spiralling interest rates will increase credit card and mortgage payments. It is an economic tsunami,...

Scottish Parliament: National Health Service Waiting Times (28 Sep 2022)

Gillian Martin: ...Tories anywhere near the decisions that affect it, whether here or at Westminster. I say to Tess White that only in an independent Scotland could we ensure that the reckless incompetence of Liz Truss and all her far-right hedge-fund lobbying pals—

Scottish Parliament: Scotland’s Population (27 Sep 2022)

Christine Grahame: .... I note that Donald Cameron, who is often consensual, referred to the commitment in the 2019 Scottish Tory manifesto to targeted migration. I do not, however, share his optimism that a Liz Truss Government will resuscitate that. In any event, she has her hands full with the economic chaos that she has brought about. Independence gives us that essential control over the macroeconomy. Part...

Written Ministerial Statements — Prime Minister: Cabinet Committees (23 Sep 2022)

Elizabeth Truss: Today I am publishing an updated Cabinet Committee list. I have placed a copy of the new list in the Libraries of both Houses.

Scottish Parliament: Parliamentary Procedures and Practices (22 Sep 2022)

Emma Roddick: ...the House of Commons is—that is as the crow flies, before taking transport links into consideration. Presiding Officer, I represent people who are further away from where you are sitting than Liz Truss is during Prime Minister’s questions. I am sure that my colleagues, particularly my SNP colleagues, will understand why folk living in my region might not feel connected to decisions...

Scottish Parliament: Oil and Gas Exploration Licences (21 Sep 2022)

Mr Mark Ruskell: In her first week in Downing Street, Liz Truss has taken a wrecking ball to climate commitments. The UK Government is again pretending that it can drill its way out of the energy crisis, while the world is facing unimaginable suffering from climate breakdown. From Liz Truss’s installation of a fossil fuel fanatic as her energy secretary to her making no reference to climate in her first...

Scottish Parliament: Workers’ Rights (21 Sep 2022)

Colin Beattie: employment bill. Does the minister agree that, given the Westminster Tory Government’s poor track record when it comes to protecting workers’ rights, coupled with the emergence of a Liz Truss Government that is intent on stripping away protections and power from unions while undermining workers, it is becoming ever more evident that the only way we can safeguard workers’ rights...

Scottish Parliament: Economic Transformation (21 Sep 2022)

Fiona Hyslop: ..., but we are in danger of leaching the rewards and benefits overseas to international shareholders instead of benefiting from jobs or cheaper energy—and that is likely to get worse under a Liz Truss led UK Government. The Scottish approach should be based on energy security for the future. We are and can be world leading as we build a just transition from oil and gas, using those skills...

Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II - Tributes (Continued) (10 Sep 2022)

Lord Paddick: ...Queen. May she rest in peace. The work of this House has been disrupted, normal life is interrupted, and all this feels very destabilising—but we have a new monarch and a new life anchor. If Liz Truss was anxious about having a difficult act to follow, spare a thought for His Royal Highness King Charles III. Our thoughts are with His Majesty and other members of the Royal Family at this...

Members Sworn (10 Sep 2022)

Lindsay Hoyle: ...the Oath, or made and subscribed the Affirmation: Sir Peter James Bottomley, for Worthing West Right honourable Harriet Ruth Harman, Camberwell and Peckham Right honourable Elizabeth Mary Truss, South West Norfolk Right honourable Penny Mary Mordaunt, Portsmouth North Right honourable Wendy Morton, Aldridge-Brownhills Right honourable Alister William Jack, Dumfries and Galloway Right...

Tributes to Her Late Majesty The Queen (9 Sep 2022)

Maggie Throup: ...sector, from construction to Government—perhaps the most poignant reminder of which was the appointment, just four days ago, of my right hon. Friend the Member for South West Norfolk (Elizabeth Truss) as the Queen’s third female Prime Minister. Now, as the second Elizabethan age draws to a close and our new Carolean era begins, our country, the Commonwealth and its people stand ready...

Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II - Tributes (Continued) (9 Sep 2022)

Lord Bilimoria: ...front of Buckingham Palace, stepped out and handed over the baton to its first relay holder. It went all around the world, across all the Commonwealth countries and territories. Prime Minister Liz Truss described the Queen as the rock of the nation over seven decades. Republics do not have this advantage that we have. Presidents change regularly; we have had continuity for 70 years—not...

Climate Change and Biodiversity: Food Security - Motion to Take Note (8 Sep 2022)

Baroness Jones of Whitchurch: ...BEIS Secretary of State, and a new Defra Secretary of State. We are all anxious to know what their plans are for the environment. I have to say that, so far, it is not looking good. Of course, Liz Truss has been the Defra Secretary of State before, so I was keen to see what she made of it last time. I googled her record. In the two years that she held the post she never made one keynote...

Primary and Community Care: Improving Patient Outcomes - Motion to Take Note (8 Sep 2022)

Lord Farmer: tackle rural loneliness and disadvantage and intergenerational opportunities. A Cabinet-level Minister needs to co-ordinate these across government, backed by the new Prime Minister. Liz Truss pioneered this in government when she commissioned my review into the importance of prisoners’ family ties to prevent re-offending and intergenerational crime. She has also promised to look at...

UK Energy Costs (8 Sep 2022)

Ian Blackford: ...s plan means that the public pay. She has made the political choice to tax families instead of companies—to put profit over people. Instead of a windfall tax, she has chosen a new Tory tax: the Truss tax—the Truss tax that means that, in the months and years ahead, households and businesses will be punished with higher bills, higher interest rates and higher mortgage costs. A Truss tax...

Horizon Europe - Question (8 Sep 2022)

the Earl of Clancarty: ...the Minister has. It says: “UK membership of Horizon Europe would be a win-win for both the UK and EU.” Will this Government continue to support the words of the then Foreign Secretary, Liz Truss? Will they hold their nerve to achieve that goal, whatever temporary blockage there may be?

Business of the House (8 Sep 2022)

Deidre Brock: ...that is their intention? I remind her that if the arbitrary threshold suggested had been applied to the Conservative leadership election, the right hon. Member for South West Norfolk (Elizabeth Truss) would not be Prime Minister, and that under it both the campaign to leave the EU and the Conservatives’ 2019 election bid would have fallen well short in England, let alone in Scotland....
