Elections Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 31A (15 Mar 2022)

Lord Collins of Highbury: ...Second Reading. It is not just some of the messaging and social network-type interference which we have seen, particularly in the US but also here, but about how our political parties are funded. Boris Johnson told the House of Commons that “it is very important for the House to understand that we do not raise money from Russian oligarchs.”—[ Official Report, Commons, 23/2/22; col....

Digital Technology (Democracy and Digital Technologies Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (11 Mar 2022)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: ...the report, and valuably so. However, our own Prime Minister and his team regularly make assertions which leave fact-checkers scrambling to correct the record. Recently, Full Fact tweeted: “Boris Johnson has once again falsely claimed there are more people in work now than before the pandemic began. That’s the SEVENTH time he’s got that wrong in Parliament.” The Office for National...

Elections Bill - Committee (1st Day) (Continued): Amendments 15 and 16 (10 Mar 2022)

Lord Rennard: ...between the business of government and the business of the Conservative Party. Louis XIV is said to have proclaimed, “L’Etat, c’est moi”—“The state? I am the state.” In his youth, Boris Johnson is supposed to have wanted to be “king of the world”. However, the United Kingdom is a democracy, not the property of the party in power, and changing election rules in its favour...

Written Ministerial Statements — Prime Minister: COVID-19 Update (10 Mar 2022)

Boris Johnson: On 15 December I announced the appointment of the Rt Hon Baroness Heather Hallett DBE as chair of the forthcoming public inquiry into the COVID-19 pandemic. In doing so, I made a commitment to consult Baroness Hallett and ministers in the devolved administrations on the terms of reference for the inquiry before publishing them in draft. This process is now complete, and I have today placed a...

Economic Crime (Transparency and Enforcement) Bill - Second Reading (9 Mar 2022)

Baroness Jones of Moulsecoomb: .... When a hard-line version of Brexit was pushed through Parliament in 2020—and I voted for Brexit; I did not realise that any Government could mess it up to this extent—we had 14 Ministers in Boris Johnson’s Government who had received donations from individuals or companies linked to Russia. Is that the reason why this economic crime Bill is so late and the measures in it so...

Defence Supplementary Estimate 2021-22 (9 Mar 2022)

Jeremy Quin: ...to this debate, is part of the respectable wing of his party. It is, I think, a great relief to the country that we have my right hon. Friend the Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson) as our Prime Minister at this time, rather than the proposition presented to us by the Labour party at the last election. The leadership he is showing in these difficult circumstances is...

Prime Minister: Engagements (9 Mar 2022)

Boris Johnson: Never before has this House listened to an address such as the one given yesterday by President Zelensky. I want to tell the House that, working with our friends and allies across the free world, we will be doing even more in the coming days to protect the people of Ukraine. My right hon. Friend the Defence Secretary will set out more details for the House later. This morning I had meetings...

National Insurance Contributions Increase (8 Mar 2022)

Boris Johnson: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. Never before in all our centuries of parliamentary democracy has the House listened to such an address. In a great European capital, now within range of Russian guns, President Volodymyr Zelensky is standing firm for democracy and for freedom. In his righteous defiance, I believe he has moved the hearts of everybody in this House. At this moment, ordinary...

Scottish Parliament: North Sea Oil and Gas (Energy Security) (8 Mar 2022)

Michael Matheson: ...our energy systems, just as Germany proposes to do, by bringing forward its target by some 15 years, or as the Dutch Prime Minister set out yesterday, when he was in London, sharing a platform with Boris Johnson. The answer is to decarbonise at a faster rate so that we are not dependent on oil and gas. The failure of the UK Government to recognise that is demonstrated by the way in which...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Committee Business: Budget 2022-25: Committee for Finance and Northern Ireland Fiscal Council Reports (7 Mar 2022)

Conor Murphy: ...that parties here had been expressing for the last number of years. It appears that, when it comes to standing up to be counted, people are prepared to back off. It is a bit like Rishi Sunak and Boris Johnson clapping in Downing Street for the health service workers: when it came to it, they did not put their hands in their pockets and provide money for them. Nonetheless, I believe that,...

Welsh Affairs (3 Mar 2022)

Simon Hart: As the hon. Gentleman knows, the leader of our Conservative group in Cardiff is Andrew RT Davies, and the leader of the Conservative party is Boris Johnson. The hon. Gentleman should know that by now, I would have thought. I have to resist the hon. Gentleman’s attempt to talk about an English approach or a Welsh approach to the covid response. If anything epitomised a UK approach, it was...

Health and Care Bill - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 80 (3 Mar 2022)

Baroness Jones of Moulsecoomb: ..., and you can imagine the pressure that Covid has put on to the NHS—extreme pressure at completely unsustainable levels, and with staff numbers that are actually unsafe. We all know this, yet Boris Johnson and the Conservatives made big promises at the last election—their manifesto made a promise of 50,000 more nurses—and instantly that number began to unravel, as it included...

Scottish Parliament: Public Service Broadcasting (3 Mar 2022)

Neil Gray: ..., quite rightly, on her RTS award. Without breaking the consensus that there has been in the debate, I would just reflect on the fact that Kathryn became very well known for her interviewing of Boris Johnson on his cuts to universal credit. Stephen Kerr seemed to be surprised that there was support from SNP members for more coverage of this Parliament. We want to see that increased. Jenni...

Prime Minister: Engagements (2 Mar 2022)

Boris Johnson: Yesterday, I was in Warsaw and Tallin reaffirming our commitment to NATO and our solidarity with Ukraine. Putin has gravely miscalculated. In his abhorrent assault on a sovereign nation, he has underestimated the extraordinary fortitude of the Ukrainian people and the unity and resolve of the free world in standing up to his barbarism. The UN General Assembly will vote later today, and we...

Prime Minister: Foreign Lobbying Bill and Economic Crime Bill (2 Mar 2022)

Boris Johnson: I thank my hon. Friend for his question. We are carefully reviewing responses to our recent consultation on a range of legislative proposals to counter state threats, including foreign agents registration. We will update Parliament in due course.

Prime Minister: Engagements (2 Mar 2022)

Boris Johnson: I hear the hon. Gentleman, and I know that the whole House will understand his feelings and his frustration that no country in the west is going directly to the support of the Ukrainians with direct military assistance. That is a reality we simply have to accept, because the consequences of a direct confrontation between the UK and Russia, and indeed between other western countries and...

Scottish Parliament: United Kingdom Shared Prosperity Fund (2 Mar 2022)

Michelle Thomson: I have not forgotten that it was an utterly disingenuous vote leave campaign led by Michael Gove and Boris Johnson that has led Scotland to this point. Although I await further developments with interest, as it stands, the UK structural funds are a mess. As I see it, there are five summary issues. First, there has not been—and I still have limited confidence that there will be—any...

Written Answers — Prime Minister: 10 Downing Street: Official Hospitality (28 Feb 2022)

Boris Johnson: Details of official receptions are published in quarterly transparency returns on gov.uk. Political receptions are not a Government matter. Notwithstanding, over the last two years, the planning and organisation of formal receptions have followed and reflected the prevailing covid restrictions and guidance.
