World War Two: Polish Contribution — [Mark Pritchard in the Chair] (2 Jul 2019)

Alan Duncan: ...Arguably the most famous squadron, 303 Squadron, was stationed at RAF Northolt. In March last year, when he was Foreign Secretary, my right hon. Friend the Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson) visited the Battle of Britain bunker there with his Polish counterpart Jacek Czaputowicz to pay their respects. There is a special House of Commons link with the Poles who fought in...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Poverty: Social Security (2 Jul 2019)

Kirsty Blackman: ...week payment to families with the most vulnerable children, mitigating the ideological austerity obsession of this Conservative Government. If the right hon. Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson) becomes Prime Minister, 53% of Scots will support independence. And who can blame them, given the Scottish Government’s plans to support and help young people and this...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Shared Prosperity Fund (2 Jul 2019)

Anneliese Dodds: woken up to the danger, splurging nearly £10 billion, almost half that amount, on tax cuts for the well off—as advocated, of course, by the right hon. Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson). Surely the only shared prosperity under the Conservatives is for those who are already well off.

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Spending Review (2 Jul 2019)

Tom Brake: ...for South West Surrey (Mr Hunt) for a £13 billion cut in corporation tax and a £12 billion increase in defence spending, or the proposal of the right hon. Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson) for a £9 billion higher rate income tax threshold cut, £11 billion national insurance contributions cut and showing the public sector “some love”? Would those unfunded bribes...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Topical Questions (2 Jul 2019)

Diana R. Johnson: As my right hon. Friend the shadow Chancellor has just pointed out, the right hon. Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson) has made £30 billion-worth of spending pledges and the right hon. Member for South West Surrey (Mr Hunt) has made £13 billion-worth of pledges. The Chancellor has said it will not happen on his watch, but that seems to suggest that a magic money tree has...

Department for Education (1 Jul 2019)

Mike Kane: ...who criticised the Government for education funding did so bravely and well. As they vie for the leadership of their party and the country, the right hon. Members for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson) and for South West Surrey (Mr Hunt) have pledged new funding for education. Whether they fulfil their promise—I suspect that they will not—the pledge is an implicit criticism of...

Department for International Development (1 Jul 2019)

Alex Norris: ..., which weakens the Department and weakens our ability to scrutinise it. We have heard that the front runner to be the next Prime Minister, the right hon. Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson), has been on record about dismantling the Department altogether; it is not beyond the pale—far from it. Instead of maintaining an independent DFID, he has suggested repurposing...

Inflation - Motion to Take Note (1 Jul 2019)

Lord Lea of Crondall: ...way. For the first time, we are in danger of making this issue into a bit of a political football. It has never been a political football, and I hope that it never will be. I do not even think that Boris Johnson would have it in mind to remove Brussels sprouts from the index. There has never been any political interference with it. The advisory committee has always tried to reach an agreed...

NHS Long-Term Plan: Implementation (1 Jul 2019)

Jon Ashworth: ...-house, which is also a Labour idea. Why does he not just let me be Heath Secretary, and then he could carry on being the press secretary for the right hon. Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson)?

Questions to the Mayor of London — Government Housing Priorities: Government Housing Priorities (28 Jun 2019)

Sadiq Khan: ...mess. They must also urgently begin discussions with us about devolving to City Hall the extra funding and powers we need. Latterly, one of the candidates, my predecessor at City Hall [The Rt Hon Boris Johnson MP], made clear last year [2018] his support for the fiscal devolution required, in his words, “To build the homes our children and grandchildren are going to need”. As Mayor he...

Questions to the Mayor of London — Honesty in Politics: Honesty in Politics (28 Jun 2019)

Sadiq Khan: ...the lie that if we leave the EU the NHS will get £300 million more per week, to the misleading statement that Turkey would join the EU. These falsehoods and many others were repeatedly voiced by Boris Johnson [MP], Michael Gove [MP, Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs] and other senior members of the Conservative Party.  I am sure all Assembly Members would...

Questions to the Mayor of London — Knife Crime: Knife Crime (28 Jun 2019)

Sadiq Khan: ...years, which showed no link between industrial-scale stop-and-search and a reduction in crime. Point number one. Point number two. The reduction of industrial-scale stop-and-search began when Boris Johnson was the Mayor and Theresa May was the PM, and I supported them in relation to not using industrial-scale, indiscriminate stop-and-stop. There was an 80% reduction when Boris Johnson...

Questions to the Mayor of London — President Trump’s Visit: President Trump’s Visit (28 Jun 2019)

David Kurten: ...some of the things that you wrote in your article. One of the things you said was that you accused the President of interfering shamelessly in the Conservative Party leadership race by backing Boris Johnson [MP]. That is not entirely accurate. He called Boris Johnson his friend. He called Nigel Farage, another great man, his friend as well. However, you, Mr Mayor, in 2016 interfered in...

Questions to the Mayor of London — London’s Future Infrastructure: London’s Future Infrastructure (28 Jun 2019)

Sadiq Khan: Yes. I would be recommending to the new PM to continue with HS2, and if it is Boris Johnson, he knows a lot about this, and so I would be hoping that it would be an easier sell to him than other candidates who could be the PM.

Questions to the Mayor of London — Incoming Prime Minister: Incoming Prime Minister (28 Jun 2019)

Joanne McCartney: Thank you, Mr Mayor. It looks like the frontrunner to be our next PM is your predecessor, Boris Johnson. You started today’s proceedings by talking about crime and the need for our next PM to properly fund our policing and early intervention services. Given that Mr Johnson under his last two years as Conservative Mayor of this city saw violence against the person rise by 47% under his...

Questions to the Mayor of London — Planning Green Paper: Planning Green Paper (28 Jun 2019)

Sadiq Khan: ...planning cannot cause a cut. We are going to make sure that the Government acts upon those permissions that have been granted but are not being built. In fact, the previous Mayor [The Rt Hon Boris Johnson MP] - who is probably going to be the next PM - was in favour of “use it or lose it”. He was an advocate for this when he was the Mayor and I am hoping that now he is likely to be the...

Questions to the Mayor of London — Brexit deadline: Brexit deadline (28 Jun 2019)

Andrew Dismore: well as businesses need urgent clarity, and what will happen once the UK leaves the EU so they can put effective continuity plans in place? What are businesses supposed to do when frontrunner Boris Johnson’s approach to businesses concerns about the hard Brexit he wants is to say, “Eff business”, as he did in June last year [2018] to the event marking the Queen’s official birthday?

Questions to the Mayor of London — Grenfell Tower fire: Grenfell Tower fire (28 Jun 2019)

Andrew Dismore: Thank you. What do you think the prospects are for justice for Grenfell if former Mayor Boris Johnson were to become PM? This is a man who broke his election promise not to cut the Fire Brigade in the 2014 Brigade cuts, axing ten fire stations, 14 fire engines and 553 firefighter posts. When I challenged him about it when he was sitting where you are, he simply replied, “Get stuffed”....

Co-Operative and Mutual Businesses (27 Jun 2019)

Marion Fellows: ...the EU without a deal would be worse than the 2008 financial crisis. The irresponsibility of the Tories is on full display with the claim of the right hon. Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson) that there could be a temporary “standstill” in the current trade arrangements with the EU while a new trade agreement is struck, and that premise being rejected by two...

Higher Education Institutions: Spending - Question (27 Jun 2019)

Lord Blunkett: My Lords, given the 8% real-terms reduction inherent in the current fee to 2022, and given that even Boris Johnson has not promised more money for further and higher education, will the Minister make representations to colleagues, both present and future, to recognise the real damage that would result from a further 20% cut in funding for teaching and student contact, and that the value of...
