A week ago today the Chancellor, Rishi Sunak, took to his feet in parliament and announced the British Governments 2021 budget.
I am delighted to commend a British Budget that will forge the way towards economic recovery from Covid-19.
Chancellor Rishi Sunaks budget, which he delivered on Wednesday, has been overwhelmingly welcomed by the British public according to snap polling.
As I write this, more than 17.5 million people across Britain have received a Covid vaccine, with another 700,000 second doses beyond that figure. That’s one in three UK adults.
Thank You Mr President,
It with great pleasure that I rise to oppose the motion and not only that, but to attest that this Kingdom is not only united today, but that it will remain so for many, many years to come.
Well, that’s the last time I complain about not having a proper winter for years! As the snow continues to fall outside, I hope this finds you all safe and well.
This week I have been proud to see Britain’s Armed Forces assisting health centres, GPs and the ambulance service with the delivery of Covid-19 support.
The Army is setting up 80 new vaccine centres for NHS Scotland from this week.
And so we near the end of January.
A poll published over the weekend found that 40 per cent of Scottish voters under 34 reject any British component to their identity.
