European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 1 (14 Jan 2020)

Lord Greaves: ...a promise made, which very large numbers of the people it affects—European citizens living here—believe has not been, and is not being, carried out in full. Before the referendum, back in 2016, Boris Johnson, Michael Gove and Priti Patel issued a statement. It was not a government Statement, but they are now the Prime Minister, the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster—who has been...

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill - Second Reading (13 Jan 2020)

Lord Lea of Crondall: .... George Orwell would have been proud of the doublethink. Finally, we are told that we have got to fly the union jack at the end of this month. The union jack is a flag that is being torn up by Boris Johnson. The scenario that is increasingly plausible about what could happen in Scotland, which my noble friend Lord Darling touched on, would mean that the St Andrew’s flag would go and we...

Written Answers — Prime Minister: SPAC Nation (13 Jan 2020)

Boris Johnson: I refer the Hon. Member to the contribution given by my Hon. Friend, the Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State at the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (Helen Whately) during the adjournment debate on Thursday 8 January 2020, Official Report, Col.584.

Housing, Communities and Local Government: High Streets (13 Jan 2020)

Jim McMahon: Mr Speaker, it was a pleasure to see your journey down here with Patrick the cat and Boris the parrot a couple of days ago—a preening, repetitive, attention-seeking Boris; I am sure he will fit in quite well here. Our high streets and town centres are in crisis, with more shops closing than opening. The Government keep falling way below what is needed to take real action that will make a...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (4th Day) (9 Jan 2020)

Lord Flight: ...of urban commuter and regional services outside London look to me much better value than HS2. Both politically and economically, I perceive parallels between the Disraeli Administration and the Boris Government. Disraeli was successful in securing the votes and political support of the newly industrialised Midlands and north; his Government also introduced major political and economic...

Scottish Parliament: Digital Connectivity (9 Jan 2020)

Paul Wheelhouse: ...—compared with a 21 per cent increase in the UK. I am aware that the UK Government has, belatedly, woken up to its responsibilities in this area. As part of his leadership campaign last summer, Boris Johnson pledged to deliver full fibre “to every home in the land” by 2025. By the December UK election, that promise had been watered down to a commitment to “roll out gigabit...

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 2) Act 2019 - Motion to Take Note (8 Jan 2020)

Baroness Ludford: ...must stop running away from the false promises that they have made and be honest with the public about what they have in store for them with their hard Brexit plan. It’s about time that Boris Johnson started being honest with our people, rather than hiding the true price of a hard Brexit. What do they have to hide?” I bat that question to the Minister, to answer if he would.

Queen’s Speech - Debate (3rd Day) (8 Jan 2020)

Lord Rogan: ...helped to put something much better in its place on Good Friday of that same year. Fast-forwarding to today and the actions of the latest Conservative Prime Minister to roll off the conveyer belt, Boris Johnson’s decision to renege on his public commitment not to annex Northern Ireland by placing a border in the Irish Sea after Brexit has had a profound impact on the psyche of the loyal...

Scottish Parliament: United Kingdom Government Spending Pledges (Barnett Consequentials) (8 Jan 2020)

Maureen Watt: ...are held by the Scottish Tories, who sat here sniggering at their puppet masters’ actions. Does the cabinet secretary agree that it is no laughing matter? Will he outline what the consequences of Boris’s botched budget actions might be for the people of Scotland’s livelihoods and the services on which they rely?

Scottish Parliament: European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill (8 Jan 2020)

Michael Russell: ...protocol between the Scottish Government and the Scottish Parliament, and I hope that the UK Government—even at this late stage—will recognise the need to be part of that process. Last month, Boris Johnson and his Conservative Party suffered a heavy defeat in Scotland. The Tories lost more than half their MPs and now have barely 10 per cent of Scottish Westminster seats. Their Brexit...

Prime Minister: Engagements (8 Jan 2020)

Boris Johnson: I should begin by saying that, of course, we condemn the attack on Iraqi military bases hosting coalition forces. Iran should not repeat these reckless and dangerous attacks, but must instead pursue urgent de-escalation. I know that the thoughts of the House are also with our friends in Australia, as they tackle the bushfires, and with the families of those killed in the Ukrainian air crash....

Queen’s Speech - Debate (2nd Day) (Continued) (7 Jan 2020)

Lord Truscott: ..., Lord Randall, on HS2. The gracious Speech raised many important issues but was tantalisingly vague on the details. We now have some understanding of the country’s future direction under Tsar Boris. Thus we will have a free trade agreement with the EU, although the deadline is very challenging. The commitment to net zero greenhouse gas emissions in 2050 is welcome, together with legally...

Hammersmith Bridge - Question (7 Jan 2020)

Lord Foulkes of Cumnock: Does the Minister recall that, during the general election, Mr Boris Johnson pledged to consider building a bridge from Northern Ireland to Scotland, even though there are hundreds of tonnes of explosives in Beaufort’s Dyke, put there because it was supposedly a safe place? If the Government cannot keep Hammersmith Bridge open, how on earth are they going to manage to do that? Is this going...

Written Answers — Prime Minister: Climate Change (7 Jan 2020)

Boris Johnson: I want us to become the cleanest, greenest society on earth, and inspire countries around the world to follow our lead, and to continue building on the excellent progress this government has made in tackling climate change and improving our environment. The Committee will bring together ministers responsible for domestic and international climate change policy, provide a forum to hold...

Boris Johnson: Details of ministerial meetings are published and available on the gov.uk website; no such Ministerial meeting took place.

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Government Budget (7 Jan 2020)

Derek Mackay: ...tax levels. Clearly, the UK Government’s decision to delay the UK budget once again will have profound consequences. Even with the clarity of now having a date—although, when it comes to Boris Johnson, we will believe it when we see it, because the Prime Minister told us that the budget would be in February but it is now to be in March—we need the detail on the block grant adjustment...

Written Ministerial Statements — Prime Minister: Oversight of Investigatory Powers (20 Dec 2019)

Boris Johnson: On 18 July 2019, the Government published new guidance titled “The Principles relating to the detention and interviewing of detainees overseas and the passing and receipt of intelligence relating to detainees”. This will replace the existing “Consolidated Guidance” with effect from 1 January 2020. The new guidance is being extended to include the National Crime Agency and S015...
