The Prime Minister was asked: Engagements (21 Oct 2020)

Boris Johnson: I know the thoughts of the whole House will be with the hon. Member for Bolton South East (Yasmin Qureshi). I am sure Members from across the House will want to join me in wishing her a speedy recovery. This morning, I had meetings with ministerial colleagues and others. In addition to my duties in this House, I shall have further such meetings later today.

The Prime Minister was asked: Kettering General Hospital (21 Oct 2020)

Boris Johnson: I am delighted that Kettering General Hospital is part of the biggest hospital building programme in a generation. I can tell my hon. Friend that the infrastructure delivery taskforce is already involved in delivering the health infrastructure programme, which includes Kettering General Hospital.

The Prime Minister was asked: Engagements (21 Oct 2020)

Boris Johnson: Governments of all stripes have supplied free school meals since 1906, and I am proud that it was this Conservative Government who extended universal free school meals to five, six and seven-year-olds. The Labour party was in power for 30 of the past 100 years and never did anything like that. We support kids of low incomes in school, and we will continue to do so, but the most important...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Adjournment: Lack of Rail Connectivity in Foyle (20 Oct 2020)

Nichola Mallon: ...islands. Steve Aiken was right in saying that we have to look at connectivity. We have a huge opportunity. The Irish Government have announced €500 million for infrastructure North and South. Boris Johnson is talking about a connectivity review and how we need to turbocharge infrastructure. There are huge opportunities for us to use rail to connect our island North and South, but also to...

Written Answers — Prime Minister: Special Envoy on Freedom of Religion or Belief (20 Oct 2020)

Boris Johnson: An appointment will be announced in the usual way. All Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office Ministers raise concerns about human rights violations and abuses, including on Freedom of Religion or Belief, where appropriate. As the UK Minister for Human Rights, my Hon Friend Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon also champions and leads on Freedom of Religion or Belief as part of his wider...

United Kingdom Internal Market Bill - Second Reading: Amendment to the Motion (19 Oct 2020)

Lord Lea of Crondall: ...some rational motivation for this Bill, when I can only imagine it was from some late-night conversation in No. 10 Downing Street. That Conservative Party element wants to return to the heyday of Boris Johnson by doing something a bit more dashing, such as tearing up this aspect of the Good Friday agreement because some people have never liked it. Where the Irish question is concerned, the...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Supply Resolution for the Northern Ireland Main Estimates 2020-21 and Supply Resolution for the Northern Ireland Estimates 2016-17 Statement of Excesses (19 Oct 2020)

Caoimhe Archibald: addressing regional imbalances and inequalities. Finally, I want to touch briefly on Brexit. Most people across the North were utterly dismayed by the comments of the British Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, on Friday, when he suggested that we were heading for a no-deal outcome to the future arrangements negotiations. You will agree — I am sure that most here will — that having no...

Questions to the Mayor of London — Empty Homes premium (2): Empty Homes premium (2) (16 Oct 2020)

Sadiq Khan: ...councils to set the levy would enable them to do more to ensure properties are occupied – or to gain a more valuable income stream where homes do remain vacant. I note that in 2014 my predecessor Boris Johnson called for at least a ten-fold increase in council tax for homes that had been empty for a year or more.

Afghanistan - Question (15 Oct 2020)

Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon: I assure the noble Baroness that the issue of girls’ education remains a government priority. Indeed, our Prime Minister, the right honourable Boris Johnson, leads directly on the campaign for 12 years of quality education for every girl around the world. As the noble Baroness knows, the situation in Afghanistan is fluid, but we remain very committed to the central objective and indeed the...

Health Protection (Coronavirus, Local COVID-19 Alert Level) (Very High) (England) Regulations 2020 - Motion to Approve: Amendment to the Motion (14 Oct 2020)

Lord Rennard: My Lords, there is possibly nowhere else in the country more lacking in confidence and trust in Boris Johnson’s Government than Liverpool. Previous Conservative Governments spoke about “managing Liverpool’s decline”—but Liverpool fought back, and what the city needs now is a managed recovery from the Covid pandemic. Almost everyone in Liverpool recognises that, with intensive care...

Covid-19 Update - Statement (14 Oct 2020)

Baroness Smith of Basildon: My Lords, I doubt that the Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, shares my admiration for Harold Wilson, but even he will recognise that his oft-quoted comment that a week is a long time in politics is very relevant today. With the pace of events over the last couple of days they must have felt like at least a week. I expect that the noble Baroness the Lord Privy Seal might be relieved not to be...

Prime Minister: Engagements (14 Oct 2020)

Boris Johnson: This morning I had meetings with ministerial colleagues and others. In addition to my duties in this House, I shall have further such meetings later today.

Written Ministerial Statements — Prime Minister: Appointment Update (14 Oct 2020)

Boris Johnson: Appointment of Additional Grenfell Tower Inquiry Panel Member The fire in Grenfell Tower on 14 June 2017 was an unimaginable tragedy that should never have happened. The Government set up the Grenfell Tower Inquiry to get to the truth about what happened and to deliver justice for victims, survivors, bereaved families and the wider community. Ensuring that such a terrible tragedy can never...

Trade Bill - Committee (5th Day): Amendment 78 (13 Oct 2020)

Baroness Kramer: ...politics. Under the current Government, this is not easy, as illustrated by the article on “shaking up the state” in last week’s Financial Times. In discussing bodies such as the TRA, one of Boris Johnson’s allies is quoted as saying that “Labour stuffed these bodies with their people; now it’s our turn.” That is not an appropriate reputation for a body such as the Trade...

Housing: Rent, Evictions and Covid-19 - Question (13 Oct 2020)

Lord Bird: ...the period of Covid-19, ending it at the end of this year. Can we not take a leaf out of the IMF’s recommendation that we spend, spend, spend and keep the receipts? Will the Minister ask Mr Boris Johnson to save our children and our children’s children from homelessness and degradation? This Government have a responsibility if only to follow what other G7 countries are doing. Those...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: The European Union/United Kingdom Withdrawal Agreement (12 Oct 2020)

John O'Dowd: ...are deciding our future. I was scanning the internet as some Members spoke to try to find out where Lord Frost got his mandate, but I cannot find that information. Lord Frost was appointed by Boris Johnson. He was picked out of the retired realms of the Civil Service and brought in to negotiate our future. That is undemocratic. There is nobody there of a democratic nature protecting us....

Covid-19 Update (12 Oct 2020)

Boris Johnson: We have had a slight change of tack, in my view, from the right hon. and learned Gentleman, who has hitherto been willing to support the measures that the Government are putting in place to restrict the spread of coronavirus. We now see an equivocation; he wants it both ways. He said he supported the rule of six, and then his side refused to vote for it. He said he is unwilling to support the...

Parliamentary Constituencies Bill - Report: Amendment 12 (8 Oct 2020)

Lord Rennard: ...are Mr Peter Bone and Sir Christopher Chope. These two Conservative MPs can hardly be described as champions of liberal democracy or as socialist conspirators. They may be accused of disloyalty to Boris Johnson, but I have checked, and there was nothing in the last Conservative Party manifesto about a 5% variation from the average electorate. The aim of roughly equal-sized constituencies...

Parliamentary Constituencies Bill - Report: Amendment 11 (8 Oct 2020)

Lord Thomas of Gresford: ...much-respected Chief Whip in the Lords in 1997—came third, with 11,000. The Tories won with 14,000. A later Conservative candidate for that constituency was an unlikely old Etonian by the name of Boris Johnson. He lost. I hope that I may be forgiven for this anecdote: I mention it to illustrate how crucial the decisions of the Boundary Commission can be in the lives and careers of...
