SOT, Keir Starmer, British leader of the opposition: “The Ukrainian people, the Ukrainian people. Mr Speaker, the Ukrainian people are fighting for democracy. We must stand with them. That means taking the toughest possible measures against Putin. And let’s be honest, there will be costs here at home. We can withstand those costs and we must by using a windfall tax to keep bills down for working people, by starting a new era of energy policy never again at the mercy of a dictator, supporting new nuclear after years of neglect, sprinting on renewables, including onshore wind and an urgent national mission to upgrade homes after years of dither and delay. So why is the prime minister offering the same failed energy policy, that cast us into the security crisis and allowed bills to rocket?” *MULTIPLE SHOTS AT SOURCE*

SOT, Boris Johnson, British Prime Minister: “Mr. Speaker, what we are junking is the failed energy policies that left us without enough nuclear power, Mr. Speaker. And what we are going to do is go forward with policies that allow this country to be independent in our energy supply and maximizing renewables, Mr. Speaker, making sure that we use transitional hydrocarbons and going for nuclear as well. As I say, I am overjoyed that Labour now seems to occupy that position. But what we will also do, Mr. Speaker and here he has been supportive, is make sure that at the House of Commons, we work together to maintain our opposition to Vladimir Putin’s vile war in Ukraine and there together with the toughest possible economic sanctions, by maintaining our military support for the people of Ukraine, I have no doubt that though there will be dark days ahead and difficult times, Mr. Speaker, we will come through it stronger and I have no doubt that Vladimir Putin will fail and we will succeed in restoring a sovereign and independent Ukraine.” *MULTIPLE SHOTS AT SOURCE*

SOT, Ian Blackford, leader of the Scottish National Party (SNP) in the House of Commons: “The Ukrainian people, the Ukrainian people. Mr Speaker, the Ukrainian people are fighting for democracy. We must stand with them. That means taking the toughest possible measures against Putin. And let’s be honest, there will be costs here at home. We can withstand those costs and we must by using a windfall tax to keep bills down for working people, by starting a new era of energy policy never again at the mercy of a dictator, supporting new nuclear after years of neglect, sprinting on renewables, including onshore wind and an urgent national mission to upgrade homes after years of dither and delay.

SOT, Boris Johnson, British Prime Minister: “Mr Speaker, I think everybody sympathizes with the plight of refugees and this government wants to do everything we can to to welcome them and that is indeed what we are doing and the numbers almost a thousand as I speak to him today, and they will rise very sharply, Mr Speaker. They are uncapped and we expect those numbers to rise to in the region of the hundreds of thousands, as Vladimir Putin doubles down in his attacks we will go further, Mr Speaker, and there will be routes by which the whole country can offer a welcome to people from Ukraine.” *MULTIPLE SHOTS AT SOURCE*

SOT, Boris Johnson, British Prime Minister: “No one has been turned away, Mr Speaker. We want to be as generous as… Mr Speaker, it is important to have checks.. Let me make this point to the House because I do think people need to understand. There are some people, there are some people, Mr Speaker, who would like to dispense with checks altogether and simply to wave people through. And I’ve got to say and I hear the voices on the benches opposite, I do think that that is irresponsible and that is not the approach that we should be taking. The Schengen countries have a different arrangement. We must be in no doubt, as I said in answer to a previous question, the Kremlin has singled out this country for the approach that we are taking. Vladimir Putin, and we know how unscrupulous Putin can be in his methods, it would not be right, Mr Speaker, to expose this country to unnecessary security risk and we will not do it, Mr Speaker. We are going to be as generous as we can possibly be, but we must have checks.” *MULTIPLE SHOTS AT SOURCE*
