Business of the House (Today): No Confidence in Her Majesty’s Government (16 Jan 2019)

Alison Thewliss: I have no confidence in this Government and I have never have. I have no confidence because of how the Department for Work and Pensions treats people. I have no confidence because of the constituent who was sanctioned because they were visiting their dying father. I have no confidence because another constituent was sanctioned while waiting to start a job with the DWP. I have no confidence...

Confidence in Her Majesty’s Government (18 Jul 2022)

Barry Gardiner: Former Conservative Cabinet colleagues are publicly accusing each other of economic incompetence, of negligence in preventing fraud and even of being a Liberal Democrat, yet after defenestrating their party leader because they had no confidence in him, Conservative Members have decided to leave the man in place as Prime Minister of this Government. As a result, the public have no confidence...

Fixed-term Parliaments Bill: Committee (3rd Day) (Continued) (29 Mar 2011)

Lord Howarth of Newport: My Lords, my amendment to the new clause tabled by the noble Lord, Lord Cormack, and his very distinguished co-signatories would delete subsections (3) and (4) of his new clause, which require the Speaker to issue a certificate and assert that the Speaker's certificate shall be conclusive. I have three grounds for proposing to the Committee that we should delete these provisions. There is the...

Fixed-term Parliaments Bill: Report (2nd Day) (16 May 2011)

Lord Falconer of Thoroton: My Lords, the circumstances in which there can be an early general election is the outstanding critical issue in the Bill. If one looks at this problem, one sees yet further evidence of the Bill not having been thought out. I shall identify what appeared in Committee to be the three main problems with Clause 2. The first was the involvement of the Speaker. We were privileged to hear speeches...

Points of Order (18 Dec 2018)

Angus MacNeil: Further to the point of order from the hon. Member for Nottingham East (Mr Leslie), Mr Speaker. Is it possible for a Back-Bench MP to table a motion of no confidence in Her Majesty’s Opposition, given the mess they have made of tabling a motion of no confidence? They have confused even their own Back Benchers over the difference between a motion of no confidence in the Prime Minister and a...

Fixed-term Parliaments Bill: Committee (3rd Day) (Continued) (29 Mar 2011)

Lord Wallace of Tankerness: ...election. There has to be certainty as to what causes that election so that it has legitimacy. One of them is to certify that two-thirds voted to trigger a Dissolution. In the context of votes of no confidence, if we seek to take power away from the Executive and the Prime Minister to determine what would be a vote of no confidence, it would be self-defeating then to say that the Prime...

Online Safety Bill: New Clause 15 - Guidance about illegal content judgements (12 Jul 2022)

Chris Bryant: Further to that point of order, Mr Deputy Speaker. As you know, “Erskine May” says very clearly: “By established convention, the Government always accedes to the demand from the Leader of the Opposition” in regard to a no-confidence motion. There has been a very long tradition of all sorts of different kinds of votes of no confidence. Baldwin, Melbourne, Wellington and Salisbury all...

Fixed-Term Parliaments Bill (Programme) (No. 2): Clause 2 — Early parliamentary general elections (24 Nov 2010)

Chris Bryant: ...Lady will join me in the Division Lobby in a wee while. Clearly, conventions have operated in this House, but they have wandered with the age. There was a period when there were frequent motions of no confidence and the Opposition thought that it was a good way in which to transact business. For the past 15 years or so, we have not had motions of no confidence, largely because the...

Scottish Parliament: Business Motion (13 Dec 2000)

Tavish Scott: Before moving the motion on behalf of the Parliamentary Bureau, I should note that it is disappointing that we find ourselves debating a motion that provides the Scottish National Party with an early opportunity to debate its motion of no confidence. It is important to set out what is proposed in the business motion: it allows for the motion of no confidence that was lodged on Friday last...

Government of Wales Bill (13 Jul 2006)

Lord Livsey of Talgarth: ...remember that this matter has been drawn to our attention by the organisation Tomorrow's Wales, which is chaired by the Archbishop of Wales. It is a serious amendment because there appears to be no real ability within the Bill for the First Minister to be dismissed in circumstances where there might be a vote of no confidence in him or her in the Assembly. The amendment states: "The First...

Opposition Day: Northern Ireland (Emergency Provisions) (5 Jul 1984)

Mr Kevin McNamara: Anyone who regards this debate and the renewal of this legislation as an excuse for underpinning the criminal law and the enforcement of justice in Northern Ireland is deluding himself. To explain those actions away just as criminal activity is foolish. We must look at the social, economic and political reasons behind this legislation. Fortunately, to the delight of the House, I do not have...

Fixed-term Parliaments Bill — Committee (2nd Day) (Continued) (21 Mar 2011)

Lord Marks of Henley-on-Thames: My Lords, the effect of the amendments in this group, tabled by my noble friends Lord Rennard and Lord Tyler, and by me, is to refine Clause 2(2), which covers the provision for an early dissolution in the event of a vote of no confidence on a simple majority followed by a period of 14 days in which no Government is formed that enjoy the confidence of the House of Commons. At Second Reading,...

Dissolution of Parliament (25 May 2010)

David Heath: It is a clear commitment on the part of this Government that we wish to maintain this Parliament and the Government over a five-year period. That is our determination, and I have no difficulty in saying that. I return to what will happen in the event of a vote of no confidence, because it is crucial. There would then be two possible outcomes. If the Government lost a vote of confidence, they...

Public Libraries and Museums Act 1964 (Amendment): Clause 2 — Early parliamentary general elections (1 Dec 2010)

Question accordingly negatived. Amendment proposed: 25, in page 2, line 24, at end add- '(6A) In this section a "motion of no confidence in Her Majesty's Government" shall be- (a) in the terms "This House has no confidence in Her Majesty's Government" or (b) in the terms "This House has no confidence in the Prime Minister".'.- (Chris Bryant.) Question put, That the amendment be made. The...

Fixed-term Parliaments Bill (13 Sep 2010)

Nick Clegg: The point of this change is that if the House no longer has confidence in the Government of the day it can pass a vote of no confidence under existing provisions, but legally enforced, and that any new Government who then try to reconstitute themselves would have to enjoy the confidence of this House-and therefore also, by extension, the confidence of the people we all represent in our...

Civil Estimates, 1956–57: Agriculture (30 Apr 1956)

Mr Thomas Fraser: Surely, all I have asked the House to do is to take note of the resolutions of "no confidence" in the Government which have been passed by branches of the N.F.U. all over the country. That is all that the Motion now before the House does. It repeats this feeling of no confidence in the Govern ment, but we do not expect the Government to say that they have no confidence in themselves.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Committee Business: Report on the Inquiry into the Devolution of Policing and Justice Matters (11 Mar 2008)

Mervyn Storey: I have 45 seconds left. Sinn Féin faces a big challenge in ensuring that the unionist community is sufficiently confident to move forward on this issue. For example, Sinn Féin created the problem around parading, and they are failing miserably in helping to resolve that problem. Sinn Féin must deal with that issue. I must have an extra minute, so I will continue. My community has no...

Central Direction of the War. (1 Jul 1942)

Mr Maurice Hely-Hutchinson: That I cannot agree with, because of the time involved. If a thing is wrong now it is due to a decision, or a failure to take a decision, as much as three or five years ago, and that is something about which I am not prepared to blame the present Government. No, Sir, I find great difficulty in believing that the right hon. Gentleman the Prime Minister, who all those years before the war...

Opposition Day: British Livestock Farming (21 Apr 1999)

Nick Brown: No, no, no. I cannot accept that. The hon. Gentleman's Front-Bench colleague, the hon. Member for South Suffolk (Mr. Yeo), actually takes the opposite position, saying that beef is safe, whether it is or is not. That is the approach that the hon. Gentleman's party has adopted on the beef on the bone ban. If the chief medical officer says that there is a risk, no matter how small, I must...

Fixed-term Parliaments Bill: Second Reading (1 Mar 2011)

Lord Wallace of Tankerness: I am not in a position to confirm that because it is highly speculative as to whether that would have happened or not. One does not know what kind of campaign there would have been if there had been an election on AV. Clause 2(2) recognises the traditional right of the House of Commons to pass a Motion of no confidence in the Government on a simple majority of those voting. No-confidence...
