Navendu Mishara (Lab) asks about trams in Stockport.
Johnson says he will look at this.
Stephen Farry (Alliance) asks for a grace period to allow time for the new post-Brexit arrangements to be introduced in Northern Ireland.
Johnson says there won’t be an extension, but the government is taking steps to ease the move to the new arrangements.
Dehenna Davison (Con) asks the PM if he agrees that no is not the time for MPs to have a pay rise.
Johnson says he does agree. He says ministerial salaries have already been frozen, as they have been since 2010.
Sir Ed Davey, the Lib Dem leader, says he asked the PM three weeks ago to raise the carers’ allowance by £20 a week. The government has not done that, but it has found millions for Tory donors, he says.
Johnson says he will look at this again.
Johnson says the UK will use its freedom after leaving the common agriculture policy to support farmers in protecting the environment.
Ian Blackford, the SNP leader at Westminster, says protecting foreign aid has long been an agreed position in the Commons. He quotes a minister defending the 0.7% aid target. Does the PM agree?
Johnson says it was the Conservative government that imposed the aid target. We are the second biggest donor in the G7, he says. He says that will continue. There has been a massive increase in aid spending. And it benefits Scotland, he says, because the civil servants from what was DfID work there.
Blackford says he was quoting Johnson’s own words to him. He says the pandemic will create extreme poverty around the world. The UK government cannot eradicate the threat from Covid if it is still spreading around the world. So does the PM agree it is worth spending money on protecting people.
Johnson says he does agree with that. He says the UK has already given more than almost any other country in the world to Covaz, the international vaccination programme. The people of the UK should be very proud of what they’re doing, he says.
Laura Trott (Con) asks about school funding.
Johnson says schools have had extra this year. Kent is getting an extra £20m for schools, he says.
Starmer says he is not knocking the private sector. He is knocking the abuse of public money. He says the government is penalising public sector workers, who are not getting a pay rise. Will they get the pay rise they deserve?
Johnson says public sector workers go an above-inflation pay rise this year. And they will still get the living wage, as the chancellor will say in his statement. (There has been speculation about the living wage being frozen.) He says the government is taking the tough decisions that will allow the economy to bounce back.
Starmer moves on to conflicts of interest. “Where do I start with this one,” he asks. He says Matt Hancock hired as an adviser a friend who was also a lobbyist, working on behalf of people looking for government contracts. Was the PM aware of this?
Johnson says any interests are declared. He says the government moved heaven and earth to get PPE. He says what Starmer is saying reveals Labour’s hatred of the private sector. But he says the private sector has been invaluable. How else could the govenrment manage? With some “deranged” reliance on the public sector?
Starmer says he is tackling the issues in his party, while Johnson is running away from his. So that’s another broken promise. Next, misusing taxpayers’ money. This is the most serious, he says. He says the government purchased 180m items of unuseable kit. How many hundreds of millions of pounds have been wasted on equipment that cannot be used?
Johnson says 99.5% of items of PPE purchased conformed to clincical needs. Of all the “pathetic lines of attack, this is the feeblest”. He says the government was being attacked by Labour at the time for not moving fast enough to procure PPE. Now Starmer is saying the government moved to fast. Johnson says Labour must decide what its attack line is.
Starmer says he will chalk that up as one broken promise. Next, ‘no leaking’. Some MPs laugh. He says the lockdown plans were leaked. There have been other leaks. This leaking is causing serious concern. Has the PM found out who is leaking?
Johnson says Starmer is concentrating on “trivia”. He says people want to see Labour supporting the fight against coronavirus. He says he would take this more seriously if Jeremy Corbyn were not still a member of the Labour party.
Sir Lindsay Hoyle, the Speaker, says it is for the PM to answer the uestions.
Starmer says Johnson did not answer the question. Let’s go through them, he says. He quotes what the ministerial adviser on standards concluded about Priti Patel and bullying. What message does it send that the adviser has resigned, and Patel is still in post?
Johnson says Patel has apologised. He says he makes no apology for standing up for a home secretary introducing a new immigration system against considerable resistance. She is showing “steely determination”, he says.
Sir Keir Starmer says in August last year the PM wrote the foreword to the ministerial code, saying there must be no bullying, no harrassment, no leaking, no misuse of public money and no conflicts of interest. How many of those promises have his ministers kept?
Johnson says his ministers are doing an outstanding job, and that is what they will continue to do. He says the spending review will be one of the most ambitious programmes seen in generations.
Laurence Robertson (Con) asks for an assurance that sovereignty for the whole of the UK will be protected in a trade deal with the EU.
Johnson says he can. He says the UK will only make progress if the EU accepts British sovereignty over its waters in relation to fishing.
Boris Johnson is taking PMQs virtually again. He starts by saying this is his last day in self-isolation.
