John Spellar (Laboratory) asks if the Prime Minister will order government bodies to buy the British first.
Johnson he says he will do it. That’s what happens with PPE, he says. He says 85% of it is now produced in the UK. Vaccines are also produced here, he says.
And that is it. PMQ it’s over.
Andrew Mitchell (Con) says Andy Street, the mayor of the West Midlands, has increased transportation costs sevenfold. Does the prime minister have advice for Mitchell voters on May 6?
Johnson says the mayor of Tory provides hope for the people of the West Midlands. He says Street deserves another term.
Karl Turner (Lab) asks the Prime Minister to accept that Priti Patel was wrong in what he said Rad police commissioners do not increase the number of police.
Johnson he says he doesn’t want to sound like glue for precision, but says Humberside’s police numbers have increased because of government policy.
Andrew Griffith (Con) asks the Prime Minister to praise the West Sussex Council’s recycling records.
Johnson he says the Conservative-led council there deserves praise. Conservative councils provide better value, he says.
Johnson he says the SNP government’s achievements are “gloomy”. They are unsuccessful in education, crime and taxes, he says.
Saqib Bhatti (Con) asks if the prime minister agrees that football fans should be at the center of decision-making.
Johnson agrees. He says the Super League plan would turn clubs into global brands, with no connection to the communities they came from. The Tracey Crouch review will consider what can be done to promote the fan role.
Andrew Rosindell (Con) asks Johnson to support a plan to move Ronald Reagan’s statute to Parliament Square.
Johnson praises Reagan, but says this is a matter for the mayor of London.
Anna McMorrin (Laboratory) says that day by day we see more and more corruption. However, people are excluded from support if they do not have the number of prime ministers. Will the prime minister meet with his constituents to discuss how they can rebuild their lives?
Johnson he says he is proud of what he did to procure the fans. He is also proud of the program of introducing vaccines, which, according to his claims, he opposed. (This is not true; Rad did not oppose the program.)
Kim Johnson (Lab) says hundreds of British gas engineers have been fired for failing to sign new contracts. The practice of firefighting and leasing is unacceptable. Will the government ban it in the Queen’s speech?
Johnson he says he repeats what he has already said about this. (He condemned such a practice, but did not promise to ban it.) He asks Johnson to send details of the case.
Johnson says further measures are planned to protect Northern Irish veterans from prosecution for historical cases
Sir Jeffrey Donaldson, a DUP leader from Westminster, says he was proud to wear a uniform and protect Northern Ireland. The prime minister has vowed to protect veterans from abuse. Will it honor?
Johnson thanks Donaldson for the service. And he thanks Johnny Mercer for his work as a veteran minister. The Overseas Operations Act helps veterans. But more needs to be done to help people who have served in Northern Ireland (who are not covered by the bill). More measures will be introduced over time, he says.
Ian Blackford, the leader of the SNP from Westminster, says that the findings about lobbying are incredibly serious. “That’s how the Tories make the government.” How many more contracts did the Prime Minister personally negotiate? Will they be published?
Johnson he says there is nothing to hide. He says he will share the details with the house and that he immediately shared the details with his officers.
- Johnson suggests that his officers have been notified of a connection to his text messages with James Dyson.
Blackford says the three million self-employed did not have David Cameron either James Dyson to send a message to the Prime Minister on his behalf. He says that this contract scandal is growing.
In the background we hear Blackford’s dog barking loudly.
Johnson says the dog spoke more sensibly than Blackford.
Philip Davies (Con) says Shipley should be able to separate from Bradford Council.
Johnson says the minister will contact Davies about it.
Starmer he says the prime minister would talk to the nurses, he would know how much their salary offer offends them. There is a pattern of this government, he says. New allegations appear every day – a fictitious deal with PPE, tax breaks for spouses, “slimy, slimy, slimy,” and everything is in the prime minister’s place. How can people expect the Prime Minister to clear this up?
Johnson he says he continues to make difficult decisions to protect the country and procure fans – who Rad now he opposes, he says. “Captain Hindsight is constantly sniffing from the side,” he says. The government continues to prioritize the people.
Starmer he says the door is open for those with the prime minister’s number and closed for those without them. If the NHS nurse had the prime minister’s phone number, would they get the salary increase they deserve?
Johnson says the government is helping nurses. It is a government that helps the profession by hiring more than ever before, he says. She says she will help the nurses.
