Budget Resolutions — Amendment of the Law (17 Apr 2002)

Boris Johnson: Does the hon. Gentleman accept that those excellent statistics obtained in large measure at the time of the 1997 election?

Budget Resolutions — Amendment of the Law (17 Apr 2002)

Boris Johnson: Thank you, Mr. Deputy Speaker, for the opportunity to speak in the debate. It is a strange comment on our parliamentary system that, although we are about to raise £8 billion in revenue from the British people, only about eight Government Members have bothered to turn up to defend that conduct. I welcome, very sincerely, some measures in the Budget, in particular the plan to alleviate the...

Budget Resolutions — Amendment of the Law (17 Apr 2002)

Boris Johnson: I am grateful to you, Mr. Deputy Speaker; I meant the Prime Minister and the Chancellor of the Exchequer. It was the Prime Minister's unique selling proposition that he could improve public services without raising taxes. Labour Members may recall the gigantic posters that sprouted up all over the country with images of the then Leader of the Opposition—with his signature appended, the...

Budget Resolutions — Amendment of the Law (17 Apr 2002)

Boris Johnson: I merely point out that it is ironic that Labour Members should cheer a regressive tax. Those regressive taxes are expected to go a very long way. The Chancellor said that he would increase public spending from £390 billion to £470 billion in about four years' time. I hope that I heard him correctly. If his growth projections are wrong, someone will pick up a large bill, and I expect that...

Budget Resolutions — Amendment of the Law (17 Apr 2002)

Boris Johnson: I will, but I am conscious that other hon. Members want to speak.

Budget Resolutions — Amendment of the Law (17 Apr 2002)

Boris Johnson: I am grateful to the hon. Gentleman for pointing that out. The Chancellor hopes to take a huge amount of money from the public and he thinks that the time is right to do that. Labour Members may be right that the public are in a generous mood and are prepared to pay more in taxes. What the public want more evidence of, however, is that those taxes, if taken and spent exclusively by the...

Pensions (23 Apr 2002)

Boris Johnson: Would the hon. Gentleman care to evaluate the impact that the rises in national insurance contributions will have on those companies? Does he agree with me that they will greatly aggravate companies' difficulties in paying generous pensions? He has not mentioned in his analysis the advance corporation tax, which my right hon. Friend the Member for Hitchin and Harpenden (Mr. Lilley) rightly...

Pensions (23 Apr 2002)

Boris Johnson: I shall be very brief, as all my points have essentially been made by my right hon. Friend the Member for Hitchin and Harpenden (Mr. Lilley), at whose feet I sit and to whose briefings on pensions I used to listen humbly and sincerely when I was a mere journalist—which, of course, I still am. This morning, I asked my secretary, who is, I am afraid to say, a Labour voter, about her pension...

Ridgeway (1 May 2002)

Boris Johnson: I speak as a vice-president of the Friends of the Ridgeway—as my hon. Friends probably also are—and I have just joined that body. The Minister mentioned the audit. Can he confirm my impression that if the audit finds that walkers and ramblers are being deterred from using the Ridgeway by the damage that has been done to it and by the presence of 4x4 vehicles, he will be minded to...

Ridgeway (1 May 2002)

Boris Johnson: I am grateful to the Minister for giving way a second time. I accept what he says about the importance of keeping decisions at a local level. However, is he saying that he will take no view at all about the outcome of the audit report?

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Energy Review Report (2 May 2002)

Boris Johnson: It is good news that the Government have decided that fusion should be part of this country's long-term energy programme. As the Secretary of State is aware, much fusion research takes place at the Culham Laboratories in my constituency. Given the importance of the fusion programme and the potential that it offers for long-term, limitless greenhouse gas-free energy, will she take steps to...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Schedule 1 — Beer from small breweries: reduced rate of duty (8 May 2002)

Boris Johnson: I rise in wholehearted support of the amendment moved by my hon. Friend the Member for Christchurch (Mr. Chope). I speak on behalf of one of the 27 breweries not to be favoured by the Bill, unlike the other 320 that are to be favoured by it. Like my hon. Friend, my heart leapt when I heard the Chancellor speak of measures in the Budget to help small breweries, because I thought that he must...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Schedule 1 — Beer from small breweries: reduced rate of duty (8 May 2002)

Boris Johnson: No, it was not Ashdown house. Imagine how surprising and saddening it is not just for me, but for a great many people in my constituency and elsewhere, to find that Brakspear is now, after more than 200 years, at serious risk of ceasing to brew. It is highly likely that Brakspear will no longer be able to brew the bitter for which it is famous. Inspector Morse used to drink Brakspear's...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Schedule 1 — Beer from small breweries: reduced rate of duty (8 May 2002)

Boris Johnson: I do not understand how the right hon. Gentleman can repeat that the measure is intended to benefit local brewers when it is clearly playing a part in expediting the demise of Brakspear's brewing in south Oxfordshire, something that it has done for 200 years. How can that be helping local brewers?

School Discipline (21 May 2002)

Boris Johnson: I am pleased to have the chance to speak in this important debate, and to follow my hon. Friend the Member for South Holland and The Deepings (Mr. Hayes), who plays a significant role in my life in so far as he prevents me from truanting from the House—if I were ever to think of doing so, which, of course, I do not—because he is the pairing Whip. It is largely thanks to him that I am...
