Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe (17 Jul 2019)

Paula Sherriff: ...Prime Minister joins us, he must make Nazanin’s release an absolute priority? I ask, gently and genuinely, should that Prime Minister be the right hon. Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson), how we can ensure that he is appropriately briefed on Nazanin’s situation. I hope the Minister agrees that it is imperative that we avoid any repeat of earlier blunders.

Music Education in England — [Sir George Howarth in the Chair] (17 Jul 2019)

Ed Vaizey: more than ever. The Minister has a week left in his job [Laughter.] In his current job—who knows what will happen to him when my right hon. Friend the Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson) comes in on his no-deal ticket? From my own experience, let me tell him that if he is sacked, it will not be on the first day, but if he is promoted, it will be on the first day....

Domestic Abuse (16 Jul 2019)

Jess Phillips: that they have been in touch with both teams; the Foreign Secretary’s team has confirmed that it would take this forward, but the team of the right hon. Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson) has yet to confirm that that is the case. Far be it from me to suggest that the right hon. Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip is not always completely straightforward, but will...

Defence Spending — [Mr Clive Betts in the Chair] (16 Jul 2019)

Stewart McDonald: ...Ministry of Defence. I will come back to that, but he said something even more revealing: he asked us to go to the bank with a promise from the right hon. Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson), the likely next Prime Minister, that he would fund defence fully. Well, he is hardly going to say he will fund defence partially. The right hon. Member for Rayleigh and Wickford...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Zero-carbon Economy (16 Jul 2019)

Drew Hendry: ...for the Scottish National party and for independence than ever before. Will the Minister do just one thing? Will he rule out serving under the right hon. Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson) and vote against a no-deal Brexit to prevent further harm?

High Speed Rail (West Midlands - Crewe) Bill: Quarterly reports on environmental impact, costs and progress (15 Jul 2019)

Owen Paterson: ...Francisco. We are all absolutely level, but we have to have broadband. A spokesman from Openreach, picking up on the comments of my right hon. Friend the Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson), said last week that “building full fibre technology to the whole of the UK isn’t quick or easy. It requires £30 billion and a physical build to more than 30m front doors, from...

BBC — [Phil Wilson in the Chair] (15 Jul 2019)

Martin Vickers: ...the leadership of the Conservative party and reflect on some of the policies put forward by my right hon. Friends the Members for South West Surrey (Mr Hunt), and for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson). She talked about tax cuts and said that we in this Chamber do not need them. Perhaps so, but we do not need free TV licences either. The sustainability of such universal benefits...

Northern Ireland (Executive Formation) Bill - Committee: Amendment 6 (15 Jul 2019)

Lord Adonis: that Parliament must meet in September and October. If the noble Lord agrees with that, why on earth are we having this argument in the first place? The only other point that needs to be made—Boris Johnson is clearly considering this, otherwise these stories would not be running and we would not be in this situation—is that it would be a grave constitutional crisis if a Government...

Religious Persecution - Motion to Take Note (11 Jul 2019)

Baroness Goldie: ...Commonwealth Office and involve other departments. I am pleased to say that not only the Foreign Secretary welcomed the report very warmly; the other contender for the position of Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, also welcomed the review and said he would always prioritise protecting religious freedoms and standing up for those facing persecution. We will consider this hard-hitting report in...

Backbench Business: National Shipbuilding Strategy — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (11 Jul 2019)

Kevan Jones: ...ask the Conservative Members here to tell those contenders that a reply to those letters would be helpful. It was especially remarkable that the right hon. Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson) visited a yard in Glasgow last week and was clearly not even briefed on the vessels. It was a good debate, and we need to keep having these debates and talking about these issues...

20 Years of Devolution (11 Jul 2019)

Liz Saville-Roberts: the best interests of the country, not in the best interests of the Labour party. With the impending threat of a no-deal Brexit and the right hon. Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson) as Prime Minister, change is more vital than ever. Brexit has shone a pitiless light on the inadequacies of the UK constitution. The European Union (Withdrawal) Act will, with the aiding...

UK’s Ambassador to the USA: Resignation - Statement (11 Jul 2019)

Lord Collins of Highbury: ..., who resigned simply for doing his job. As Tom Tugendhat said in the other place this morning, it is absolutely essential that we all stand up for those we send abroad. It is deeply shameful that Boris Johnson was unable to do that, despite the six opportunities he had on Tuesday. Nevertheless, in the other place this morning Alan Duncan said we will appoint a new ambassador in the usual...

Business of the House (11 Jul 2019)

Valerie Vaz: ...Before the Leader of the House says anything, let me remind him that it was not Labour brothers who did that; Lehman Brothers was responsible. The right hon. Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson) has repeatedly refused to rule out no deal, so I ask again: please will the Leader of the House give us time to debate the Lords message? Will the Government explicitly rule out...

Resignation of Uk Ambassador to Usa (11 Jul 2019)

Pat McFadden: ..., the relationship between the United Kingdom and the United States is bigger than this matter and bigger than this President. The response of the right hon. Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson) was an appalling abandonment of someone in the firing line. Real leaders protect their people; they do not throw them to the wolves because they can sniff a prize for themselves....

Women and Equalities: Topical Questions (11 Jul 2019)

Dawn Butler: ...have to be honest Rule number two, don’t make the promise If you can’t make the deal, just be honest Equalities will never die, it’s like Chuck Norris Rather, chuck this Government and chuck Boris.”

High Speed 2 (10 Jul 2019)

Liam Byrne: ...other projects, and Opposition Members will be forgiven for worrying that it will disappear into the £10 billion-a-year tax cut proposed by the right hon. Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson). The right hon. Member for South Northamptonshire was right to demand choices, but the choices that she proposes are wrong. The real strategic transport choice that this country...

Animal Welfare (Sentencing) Bill (Programme): Climate Change, the Environment and Global Development (10 Jul 2019)

Chris Law: ...given that the leading candidate for that role would not even defend the UK ambassador to the US last night. I also have grave concerns that the right hon. Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson) is more likely to mimic inward-looking, “America first” Trump with regard to aid and international development. He has previously called for DFID to be closed and rolled back...

Migrant Children: Welfare - Question for Short Debate (9 Jul 2019)

Lord Watson of Invergowrie: ...English language strategy to ensure that everyone in this country, especially those with newly recognised refugee status, are supported to speak the same language”. Someone should tell that to Boris Johnson who, only three days ago, demanded that immigrants should learn English to integrate better. His ignorance would be amusing if this was not such a serious issue. Mr Johnson should...

Northern Ireland (Executive Formation) Bill: Extension of period for forming an Executive (9 Jul 2019)

Gavin Newlands: ...—a parade of wannabe comedians trying their best to recreate Freedonia in their own image, with the biggest joke of all reserved for when the right hon. Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson) enters No. 10, perhaps by zipslide. But at least Freedonia was fictitious. Of course it would be easy for those on the Treasury Bench, now or at some point after the right hon....

Active Travel — [Mr Adrian Bailey in the Chair] (9 Jul 2019)

Ruth Cadbury: or walk are better learners during the day. It is no coincidence that a large number of City companies pushed the former Mayor of London, the right hon. Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson), to go ahead with the east-west cycle route in London. They pushed for that because they knew that it would make their staff more productive at work, as more people cycling often...
