Scottish Parliament: European Union Farming Funding (Convergence Funds) (3 Sep 2019)

Fergus Ewing: ...the review panel has accepted Scotland’s case as being substantial and compelling. Support has come from perhaps surprising quarters in recent times. Many people might have been surprised that Boris Johnson, in his campaign to be elected to lead the Conservative Party, unequivocally promised to pay out additional funding to Scottish farming in 2020 and again in 2021. Although I do not...

Questions to the Mayor of London — Priorities for London: Priorities for London (29 Jul 2019)

Sadiq Khan: Thank you, Chair. Yes, I love this city. It is the greatest city in the world. This is the city that gave me the opportunity to go from the council estate where I grew up to being Mayor of the greatest city on earth. Every day I wake up even more passionate than the last about delivering the promise I made to Londoners to make London a fairer city where all Londoners get the opportunities...

Questions to the Mayor of London — Black Cab Drivers: Black Cab Drivers (29 Jul 2019)

Sadiq Khan: ...drivers, TfL has restructured the delicensing scheme. This scheme provides up to £10,000 to those who trade in their older, dirty vehicles early, double the maximum under the previous scheme from Boris Johnson when he was the Mayor.  TfL has also set up a £5 million fund to help drivers of Euro 5 taxis to confer to liquid petroleum gas (LPG) and continues to contribute towards a...

Questions to the Mayor of London — Affordable Housing Funding: Affordable Housing Funding (29 Jul 2019)

Sadiq Khan: ...London needs a step‑change of investment in genuinely affordable housing and particularly in council homes and homes for social rent. Without prejudicing the outcome of the current contest, if Boris Johnson does become the next Prime Minister I will also remind him of his support just last year for the fiscal devolution required, in his words, “To build the homes our children and...

Questions to the Mayor of London — “Shocking… horrifying… slow”: the Government’s response to removing flammable cladding post-Grenfell: “Shocking… horrifying… slow”: the Government’s response to removing flammable cladding post-Grenfell (29 Jul 2019)

Andrew Dismore: Thanks for that as well. After the Lakanal House fire ten years ago, which killed six people and injured many more, then-Mayor Boris Johnson said: “Is there anything we should be doing to ensure that we do not have a repeat of such tragic blazes? Safety has to be paramount and we will certainly be looking at this to see if there are any lessons that can be drawn.” Would you think that...

Questions to the Mayor of London — Ulez: Ulez (29 Jul 2019)

Sadiq Khan: ...improvements to enable the expansion to take place. That is wrong and that will impact the health of Londoners. However, there is good news because the next Prime Minister is probably going to be Boris Johnson and Boris Johnson of course is against expansion of Heathrow and is in favour of air quality in London, we hope. I am hoping there will be some progress in this area once he...

Questions to the Mayor of London — Cancellation of the Rotherhithe to Canary Wharf Bridge: Cancellation of the Rotherhithe to Canary Wharf Bridge (29 Jul 2019)

Sadiq Khan: The question you are asking is whether I will agree to potentially £600 million‑plus being spent on this bridge, and the answer is no. We have seen with the previous Mayor [Boris Johnson] what happens when you become fixated with a project and a bridge, even though common sense is telling you and experts are telling you it is not value for money and is not a sensible use of taxpayers’...

Questions to the Mayor of London — Housing Infrastructure Fund: Housing Infrastructure Fund (29 Jul 2019)

Navin Shah: ...ask a question about the very future of HS2. As we all know, the Chair of HS2 is carrying out a project review and this is in the context of a comment from the frontrunner to be the Prime Minister, Boris Johnson [MP], and I quote: “There are projects we should have on transport in the north of the country that ought to take precedence over HS2.” Do you think that if HS2 were to be...

Questions to the Mayor of London — Williams Review: Williams Review (29 Jul 2019)

Florence Eshalomi: ...fact that the overcrowding and congestion on a number of routes through Southwark is quite worrying. They want passengers put back at the heart of that. Do you feel that if we have Prime Minister Boris Johnson elected next week, will he advocate for rail devolution down to London on a number of those key routes, including the Govia Thameslink Railway route, which is up for...

Questions to the Mayor of London — Permitted Development: Permitted Development (29 Jul 2019)

Sadiq Khan: I will do so, but the good news is every single member of the Conservative Assembly Group, except for one, supports the candidature of Boris Johnson and they probably have more influence over him than I would. I will lobby [potential] Prime Minister Johnson, but I am sure the Conservative Group on the Assembly will also lobby Mr Johnson because it is really important that we have good...

Summer Adjournment (25 Jul 2019)

Wes Streeting: ...proud of: millions of pounds wasted on a garden bridge that was never built; millions of pounds wasted on a cable car with no passengers; huge amounts of taxpayer money wasted on a vanity project, Boris island airport, which never even made it past the artistic licensing phase; the water cannon that he purchased but was never able to use; the fact that crime, including violent crime, rose...

Priorities for the Government - Statement (25 Jul 2019)

Lord Liddle: ...growth. So, this is a very serious question, not one of party politics. Mrs May took notice of these experts and that is why she was determined that there would not be no deal. What notice do Mr Boris Johnson and his team of sycophants take of expertise?

United Kingdom’s Ambassador to the United States: Leaked Messages - Question for Short Debate (25 Jul 2019)

Lord Collins of Highbury: cite Tom Tugendhat, chair of the Foreign Affairs Committee, who said it was essential that we all stand up for those who we send abroad. I repeat what I said then: it is deeply shameful that Boris Johnson was unable to do that, despite the six opportunities he had in the TV debate. The noble Baroness, Lady Goldie, who is in her place, responded to the Urgent Question by saying that it...

Mental Health Act 1983 — [Ms Karen Buck in the Chair] (25 Jul 2019)

Neil Coyle: ...present, but they make a bad choice every time they light a cigarette, and arguably the Conservative party has chosen badly in selecting the right hon. Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson). The fourth and fifth principles are: “An act done, or decision made, under this Act for or on behalf of a person who lacks capacity must be done, or made, in his best interests....

Priorities for Government (25 Jul 2019)

Boris Johnson: I struggled to discover a serious question in that, but I will make one important point that it is worth making: under no circumstances will we agree to any free trade deal that puts the NHS on the table. It is not for sale. I remind the right hon. Gentleman that for 44 of its 71 years of glorious existence, the NHS has benefited from Conservative policies and Conservative government, because...

Kew Gardens (Leases) (No. 3) Bill [Lords]: Youth Services (24 Jul 2019)

Ben Bradley: .... I hope the House will indulge me for a second as I seek to take my moment in history by perhaps being the first to congratulate my right hon. Friend the Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson), our new Prime Minister, on his appointment to the role and his barnstorming speech outside No. 10 earlier. From that speech, I took a number of positives that relate to this debate....

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: 20 Years of Devolution (24 Jul 2019)

Patrick Grady: ...think that constitutional perfection has now been reached on these islands. I wonder whether that means he agrees with his new party leader, the right hon. Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson), who told a group of activists that we do not need “an England-only parliament. We have an England parliament, it’s in Westminster.” If the Secretary of State does agree with...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Leaving the EU: Effect on the Union (24 Jul 2019)

Pete Wishart: ...his soon-to-be Prime Minister, because what he has said in the past is that it would be “extremely difficult” to stay in a Cabinet under the right hon. Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson). Will he ever develop anything approaching a backbone, or are Ruth’s Scottish Conservatives now the exclusive property of their biggest electoral liability?

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Leaving the EU: No Deal (24 Jul 2019)

Douglas Chapman: ...I have read reports that house prices in London are falling and job vacancies are down—two classic signs of an economy going into recession—and I can add to this mix the potential for a no-deal Boris Brexit boorach. Given these circumstances, what is the Secretary of State’s plan B for the Scottish economy?
