Johnson says the G7 summit in Carbis Bay in Cornwall will be an opportunity to showcase a wonderful part of the UK. The Romans mined tin in Cornwall. Cornwall is at the heart of the 21st century green industrial revolution, he says.
And that’s it. PMQs is over.
Abena Oppong-Asare (Lab) says Greenwich council needs to make cuts of £20m. Last year the government said councils would get whatever they needed to get through the pandemic. So why are her constituents facing council tax rises?
Johnson says the government is supporting councils. But he says the Labour mayor of London is putting up council tax by 10%.
Apsana Begum (Lab) asks if the PM agrees that structural racism is behind the increased risk to BAME groups.
Johnson says he does not agree on that point, but he agrees with Begum that it is essential to make sure all groups in the community are vaccinated, including those who are “vaccine hesitant”.
Andrew Lewer (Con) asks about a government review of food regulation.
Johnson says he is a champion of liberty, but also an embodiment of the risks of obesity. It has been a comorbidity in the pandemic. People should stay healthy, he says.
Jason McCartney (Con) asks if the PM agrees that the police should get priority for vaccination.
Johnson says the government must rely on the JCVI, and the priority list it has. But he says he would like to groups like the police getting vaccinated as soon as possible.
Tulip Siddiq (Lab) asks what assurances the government has had that Nazarin Zaghari-Ratcliffe will be able to return to the UK when her prison term in Iran ends in 45 days.
Johnson says the government is doing all it can to secure her release. Her detention was not justified, he says.
Ben Bradshaw (Lab) asks the PM to admit that he was wrong when he told fishers they would not face new forms after Brexit, and musicians they would still be able to tour in Europe after Brexit.
Johnson says one problem for the fishing industry is that “alas” restaurants are shut. But he says under Brexit they will have the chance to access more fish. And there is a £100m fund to help them, he says.
Gary Streeter (Con) says the south-west needs more investment in infrastructure. Is it included in the levelling up agenda?
Johnson says the potential of the south-west is enormous. There will be massive investment in infrastructure.
Rosie Cooper (Lab) asks the PM to guarantee enough funding for the Environment Agency to deal with flooding in Lancashire.
Johnson says Cooper is right to raise this. He quotes the sums already spent on this.
Johnson says he is confident that the MHRA will be able to quickly turn around any new applications for Covid vaccines needed to tackle new variants.
Claire Hanna (SDLP) says every Northern Ireland party thinks there is a problem with border control, although Brandon Lewis, the secretary of state, claims there is not a problem. Will the PM be straight with the people of Northern Ireland.
Johnson says there is more GB/NI trade than GB/Ireland trade because it is al going so smoothly.
Nicolas Richards (Con) asks about Holocaust Memorial Day next week.
Johnson says he would encourage all schools to watch the event she mentions commemorating it.
Ian Blackford gets his second question. The PM ordered his MPs last night to vote down a motion condemning genocide. He says yesterday the outgoing US secretary of state said genocide was being committed against the Uighurs, and he says the incoming one agrees. Does the UK government agree?
Johnson says defining acts as genocide is a judicial matter. But he says what is happening in China is “utterly abhorrent”.
He asks what the SNP would do on foreign policy.
Sir Ed Davey, the Lib Dem leader, says Covid cases have soared. The UK now has one of the highest death rates in the world. He asks the PM to commit to launching the inquiry into what went wrong this year.
Johnson says the NHS is under unprecedented pressure. The idea that state resources should be devoted to an inquiry now does not seem sensible. But of course there will be a time to learn lessons later.
Ian Blackford, the SNP leader at Westminster, accuses Johnson of cosying up to Donald Trump and his “callous world view”. He quotes what Theresa May said about the government, and asks Johnson to reverse the cut in international aid.
Johnson says having a good relationship with the US president is part of the job description of prime minister. He says the UK is working with international partners on vaccine supply. And he accuses the SNP of wanting to break up the armed forces.
Blackford has a problem with his line, and so he does not get his second question in.
Rob Butler (Con) asks if the vaccination programme is on track in Aylesbury.
Johnson says it is on track to vaccinate everyone in the first four groups by mid-February.
Starmer repeats the question. Why did he over-rule the home secretary?
Johnson says in March last year Starmer was defending an open border approach. He says Starmer is like a weather vane; twisting round and round with the breeze. He says Starmer stood on a manifesto at the last election attacking the pharmaceutical companies the country now relies on.
