Friend agree that no Member of this House or the other place should seek to prevent, through censorship, the BBC or the Independent newspaper from questioning the involvement of Lord Ashcroft in alleged corruption scandals in the Turks and Caicos islands? [Interruption.]

Bill Presented — Dementia Strategy Bill: Organ and Tissue Donation (Mandated Choice) (17 Mar 2010)

David Borrow: I beg to move, That leave be given to bring in a Bill to establish a system of mandated choice for the donation of organs and tissues; and for connected purposes. It is a magnificent achievement that in 2008-09 there were more than 3,500 organ donations in the UK. In addition, more than 4,000 corneas were donated, leading to 2,711 people having their sight restored. Tragically, in the same...

Defence Industry (Lancashire) (16 Mar 2010)

David Borrow: On that point, does the hon. Gentleman agree that a lot of progress has been made on the transfer of intellectual property, and that it is important that the UK continues to deliver its side of the bargain and does nothing that could allow Members of Congress to seek to reopen the deal and start putting obstructions in the way of the transfer of intellectual property in the future? I say that...

Defence Industry (Lancashire) (16 Mar 2010)

David Borrow: Does the hon. Gentleman agree that there are legitimate concerns that the strategic defence review might end up listening to those who have learned their lessons from the conflicts of only the past 10 years, which might result in us drawing up a military system based on the needs of those past 10 years, rather than on what could be needed in the next 20 or 30 years? Fast jets, aircraft...

Defence Industry (Lancashire) (16 Mar 2010)

David Borrow: It is my understanding that BAE Systems employs 12,000 people in the north-west and has a supply chain of 1,000 companies in the region, which supply it with services and products.

Defence Industry (Lancashire) (16 Mar 2010)

David Borrow: I am grateful to have the opportunity to raise issues relating to the defence industry in Lancashire. Lancashire is probably at the heart of the UK's defence industry, although when I first moved to Preston in 1975, I did not realise how important the industry there was. At the time, British Aerospace, as it then was, ran three major aerospace factories in the Preston area. One was at Warton,...

Defence Industry (Lancashire) (16 Mar 2010)

David Borrow: I am grateful to the hon. Gentleman. He and I have a long history of dealing with aerospace issues in this place, being officers of the all-party group on aerospace. I know of his interest in the issues, given that he represents Farnborough, which is the headquarters of BAE Systems. On many issues, we have fought on the same side in the interests of the aerospace and defence industries. I...

Defence Industry (Lancashire) (16 Mar 2010)

David Borrow: I was somewhat puzzled that the hon. Gentleman mentioned the leaflet, because Aldershot is obviously a long way from South Ribble. However, when he cited the fulsome praise of the Conservative candidate who is to be my opponent in the general election, I twigged that she comes from the same part of the world as him and that the leaflet was probably passed to him on a weekend trip to the south.

Defence Industry (Lancashire) (16 Mar 2010)

David Borrow: I have some sympathy for the hon. Gentleman, because I know that he is a strong supporter of the aerospace and defence industries. However, having read his speech of 1 March and having seen various Conservative party statements, I see that the party has a formula should it come to office; it will carry out a strategic defence review. However, until that is done, it is unable to make any...

Defence Industry (Lancashire) (16 Mar 2010)

David Borrow: I shall move on. It has been interesting to watch the debate about procurement and other such matters over the last few months. The Government have signed contracts for the carriers and work is going ahead with them. The shadow Defence Minister made it clear to conveners from the defence industry that the break clause would be considered on day one, which questions the Tory commitment to the...

Defence Industry (Lancashire) (16 Mar 2010)

David Borrow: I recall that just before Christmas, at a meeting of the Select Committee on Defence, I asked my hon. Friend the Minister about the Government's commitment to the F-35 joint strike fighter. My hon. Friend told the Committee that the Government would purchase 140 aircraft.

Defence Industry (Lancashire) (16 Mar 2010)

David Borrow: Indeed, and we have already signed a contract for three aircraft in order to do evaluation trials. I asked a similar question of my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State. He made it clear that he saw the Typhoon and the F-35 as the two fast jets at the core of our military capability, and that he was not looking to get rid of them or to buy anyone else's aircraft. I am disappointed that...

Rental Accommodation (Thermal Insulation Standards): Schedule 5 — Repeals (23 Feb 2010)

David Borrow: As a gay man representing a constituency with a large Catholic population and a majority of faith schools, I recognise that faith schools should be able to explain to their pupils what their faith position is on many of these issues. Will my hon. Friend reassure me, however, that when the guidance is published, it will be framed in such a way that schools will not be able in any way to foster...
