Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Trident (4 Dec 2006)

Boris Johnson: The Prime Minister is right to say that this successor submarine must be built with British technology and by British scientists, but does he share the extreme anxiety of Rolls-Royce—one of the main contractors—that not enough nuclear physicists are coming out of British universities with the necessary specialism to enable it to be sure of doing the job that he outlines today? What steps...

Boris Johnson: May I inform the Minister that the suddenness and savagery of the cuts are affecting not only the University of Leicester university medical school but many other universities?

Above all, the cuts are making...

Orders of the Day: Police and Justice Bill (24 Oct 2006)

Boris Johnson: My hon. Friend is quite right. The key difference is that her constituent had absolutely no opportunity to contest the information provided by the US authorities, whereas, of course, if UK authorities want to extradite a suspect from America, they are obliged to lay evidence that may be contested by the defendant. That has been pointed out repeatedly by hon. Members on both sides of the...

Orders of the Day: Police and Justice Bill (24 Oct 2006)

Boris Johnson: I see the hon. and learned Gentleman rise from his seat like a rocketing pheasant— [Laughter.] Well, like a very slowly rocketing pheasant. I think that I can anticipate what he will say, but I will let him say it.

Orders of the Day: Police and Justice Bill (24 Oct 2006)

Boris Johnson: I am saying that when we require the extradition of someone from America, it is possible for the defendant or suspect to contest the evidence, or supply countervailing evidence in his defence, in court before he is extradited. That is the key. I see the hon. and learned Gentleman smirking with the look of a man who has been chastised on a point of law. That is the key difference between our...

Orders of the Day: Police and Justice Bill (24 Oct 2006)

Boris Johnson: In that case, Mr. Crook would have the protection of forum. He would have the protection provided for in the European convention on extradition, under which, if the alleged crime took place in the UK's jurisdiction, or partly in it, a person would have the protection of the fact that a judge can decide whether, in the interests of justice, he should be tried in the UK jurisdiction. That is...

Orders of the Day: Police and Justice Bill (24 Oct 2006)

Boris Johnson: The Government's assurances on many of those questions have proved quite worthless. I want to return to the central point about forum provision. I do not wish to revive the polemical arguments that were made in an earlier debate about my constituents and my hon. Friends constituents who are involved in banking. Aspersions have been cast on their innocence, but if a crime that counters UK...

Orders of the Day: Police and Justice Bill (24 Oct 2006)

Boris Johnson: I begin by saying how passionately I agree with the last point made by the hon. Member for Nottingham, South (Alan Simpson). The principle that we are talking about applies to all British citizens irrespective of where they come from, what constituency they happen to live in or their walk of life. I absolutely agree with him that that applies equally to Gary McKinnon, Barbar Ahmad and...

Orders of the Day: Police and Justice Bill (24 Oct 2006)

Boris Johnson: I am distressed to hear that the hon. and learned Gentleman will not vote on what I thought he agreed earlier was the side of reason and common sense. The provision is not sine damno, because the evidentiary imbalance means that there is a huge absence of reciprocity, parity, equality, symmetry—whatever we choose to call it—between our arrangements and the American arrangements, with the...
