School Discipline (21 May 2002)

Boris Johnson: I do not want to take interventions. [Interruption.] Go on then, blame society.

School Discipline (21 May 2002)

Boris Johnson: I am grateful to the hon. Gentleman for warning me of my fate when my children reach their teenage years. I listen to him with all humility and sincerity, but it is grossly patronising to many people who live on very low incomes and none the less produce polite, well-mannered and law-abiding children to say that everything is the fault of society.

School Discipline (21 May 2002)

Boris Johnson: Hang on; hear me out, old boy. [Interruption.] I am sorry; I mean I ask the hon. Gentleman to hear me out. It strikes me that the fault must lie fundamentally with the parents. In the past 20 to 25 years, we have seen a revolution in the relationship between children and adults in our society as fundamental as the revolution in the relationship between the sexes. Children no longer respect...

Public Bill Committee: Police Reform Bill [Lords]: Schedule 1 - Powers of the Secretary of State in relation to NCIS and NCS (11 Jun 2002)

Boris Johnson: It is a great pleasure to speak for the first time under your chairmanship, Mr. Stevenson, and in the presence of so many former comrades from the Proceeds of Crime Bill, in whose salt mines I had the honour of serving for 36 glorious Committee sittings. I see many veterans of those disputations, including the hon. Lady for 2 Fountain court, the hon. and learned Member for Redcar (Vera...

Public Bill Committee: Police Reform Bill [Lords]: Schedule 1 - Powers of the Secretary of State in relation to NCIS and NCS (11 Jun 2002)

Boris Johnson: I am so grateful for that perspicacious intervention. If there is to be no interference and if the new clause will not be used, let us get rid of it. Let us follow the action of Lord Rooker and abandon it, and get rid of the saving clauses, too. I agreed strongly with what was said by my hon. Friend the Member for South-East Cambridgeshire, the hon. Member for Lewes and others. The measure is...

Public Bill Committee: Police Reform Bill [Lords]: Clause 8 - The independent police complaints commission (13 Jun 2002)

Boris Johnson: Will the Minister clarify why Lord Rooker, if I understood the hon. Member for Lewes correctly, was told: ''On no account read out the following paragraph''? What was the purpose of that restriction?

Public Bill Committee: Police Reform Bill [Lords]: Clause 8 - The independent police complaints commission (13 Jun 2002)

Boris Johnson: I am sorry if I seem to be slow, but I should like to be absolutely clear about something. If I am frisked by a detention officer at Heathrow and complain that I have been mistreated, will the new IPPC investigate the behaviour of the detention officer?

Written Answers — Deputy Prime Minister: Parish Councils (18 Jun 2002)

Boris Johnson: To ask the Deputy Prime Minister what the total cost was of sending out the literature from the Standards Board to all parish councils; and if he will make a statement.

Public Bill Committee: Police Reform Bill [Lords]: Clause 30 - Suspension of senior officers (18 Jun 2002)

Boris Johnson: My question has been answered.

Public Bill Committee: Police Reform Bill [Lords]: Clause 34 - Conduct of disciplinary proceedings (18 Jun 2002)

Boris Johnson: I wonder whether the Minister could give us a taster of the circumstances in which the public might be admitted.

Public Bill Committee: Police Reform Bill [Lords]: Clause 35 - Police powers for police authority employees (20 Jun 2002)

Boris Johnson: I am still troubled by the problem of a CSO having power on one side of the street but not the other side. The Minister has not yet addressed that. I wonder whether he envisages there being any provision for hot pursuit by a CSO trying to apprehend a criminal, such as that provided for pursuit across state lines in America. Will it be legitimate for the CSO to exercise his powers briefly in...

Public Bill Committee: Police Reform Bill [Lords]: Clause 35 - Police Powers for Police Authority Employees (20 Jun 2002)

Boris Johnson: Does the hon. Lady know whether it is possible to be detained for a non-arrestable offence?

Public Bill Committee: Police Reform Bill [Lords]: Clause 35 - Police Powers for Police Authority Employees (20 Jun 2002)

Boris Johnson: Can one be detained for a non-arrestable offence?

Public Bill Committee: Police Reform Bill [Lords]: Clause 35 - Police Powers for Police Authority Employees (20 Jun 2002)

Boris Johnson: I did not intend to speak, but the hon. and learned Lady's comments have inspired me to say something on behalf of the potential miscreant. Nobody has spoken for him. I wanted to put myself in his shoes, by imagining that I am rolling around the streets of Henley late at night and much the worse for wear when a figure with a helmet on looms out of the fog and says, '''Ello, 'ello, what's all...

Public Bill Committee: Police Reform Bill [Lords]: Clause 35 - Police Powers for Police Authority Employees (20 Jun 2002)

Boris Johnson: I am very grateful to my hon. Friend for that helpful intervention. It is vital that all of us in this Room, and other potential miscreants, should be able to know exactly where we stand with these people, and what authority they have over us.

Public Bill Committee: Police Reform Bill [Lords]: Clause 35 - Police Powers for Police Authority Employees (20 Jun 2002)

Boris Johnson: That is very interesting. I am pleased that the hon. and learned Lady is so convinced of that, because our earlier discussion suggested that it was unclear whether CSOs would have the same powers in different areas. I was not sure whether they would have the same uniforms. It would be a grave disservice to set up CSOs without a clear understanding among the public about their powers. Do we...

Public Bill Committee: Police Reform Bill [Lords]: Clause 35 - Police Powers for Police Authority Employees (20 Jun 2002)

Boris Johnson: I am sure that the hon. Gentleman was listening earlier, because he would have heard it said from the Opposition Front Bench that we do not object to such pilot schemes. The burden of the suggestion made by my hon. Friend the Member for South-East Cambridgeshire was that we should have pilot schemes but that the system should not be rolled out higgledy-piggledy throughout the country with...

Public Bill Committee: Police Reform Bill [Lords]: Clause 35 - Police Powers for Police Authority Employees (20 Jun 2002)

Boris Johnson: I am very grateful to the hon. Lady for her kindly intervention—[Interruption.]—although I am informed by my wise hon. Friends on the Front Bench that she misread the amendment.
