Orders of the Day — Police and Justice Bill (6 Mar 2006)

Boris Johnson: Of course I wish to congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for North Essex (Mr. Jenkin) on his sterling defence of the Essex police force. However, I wish to draw attention to an opportunity that the Bill gives us to rectify a matter of serious and widespread public concern, which has already been addressed by the hon. Member for Hornsey and Wood Green (Lynne Featherstone) and my hon....

Orders of the Day — Police and Justice Bill (6 Mar 2006)

Boris Johnson: I am indebted to you, Madam Deputy Speaker. I do not think that anything that I have said, or am likely to say, could in any way prejudice the outcome of any trial, but I am grateful for your reminder. Why is it inconceivable that any other country could be treated in that way? It is because America, rightly or wrongly, takes a wide view of her jurisdiction and awards herself a great deal of...

Orders of the Day — Police and Justice Bill (6 Mar 2006)

Boris Johnson: My hon. Friend is exactly on the point. It would not only be reassuring to people in this country if we were to restore that symmetry, it would also be reassuring to the Americans because they do not want to keep hearing anti-American claptrap. It would take away a stick that anti-Americans—perhaps there are some on the Labour Benches—might use to beat them. There is a second and related...

Orders of the Day — Police and Justice Bill (6 Mar 2006)

Boris Johnson: Does the Home Secretary agree that amendments on extradition would offer a good opportunity to clear up the grotesque anomaly whereby citizens of the United Kingdom accused of crimes against British interests in the UK can be extradited to America on the say-so of the American authorities, without any corresponding right in this country to demand that Americans should come here, without...

Further and Higher Education (Employer Engagement) (2 Feb 2006)

Boris Johnson: Fund them properly.

Further and Higher Education (Employer Engagement) (2 Feb 2006)

Boris Johnson: I confess some perplexity at my hon. Friend's metaphor. Surely the tank is getting fuller and fuller at the deep end.

Further and Higher Education (Employer Engagement) (2 Feb 2006)

Boris Johnson: I congratulate the Minister on securing this important debate and on the great verve with which he set out his case for greater emphasis to be placed on training and improving our skills base. He made his case passionately. No one in the House could disagree with him. I agree with 95 per cent. of what he had to say. However, when will he live up to the Government's promise about further...

Further and Higher Education (Employer Engagement) (2 Feb 2006)

Boris Johnson: I see the Minister nodding, and that is a great relief to me. Sometimes, we labour under that pretence, and that leads to madness. I can see the arguments, and I am sure that everybody here can too, for spreading research funding around and for ensuring that everybody has the potential to benefit. The argument about serendipity is that one never knows what will sprout if one chucks seeds...

Further and Higher Education (Employer Engagement) (2 Feb 2006)

Boris Johnson: I am grateful to my hon. Friend for supplying me with the parable. The story that I had in mind was that of the sower who went forth to sow and some of what he sowed fell on stony ground and some yielded an hundredfold. It might be that that principle could be applied to FE if we are to try to produce the best return on investment. I leave it to the Minister to reply to my hon. Friend's...

Written Answers — Home Department: Extradition (23 Jan 2006)

Boris Johnson: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many certificates under section 70(1) of the Extradition Act 2003 have been signed by his Department in respect of requests from the US since 1 January 2005; and how many requests have been received from the US for which a certificate has yet to be issued.

Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Skills: University/Industry Links (12 Jan 2006)

Boris Johnson: The Minister knows how fervently the Opposition support his work to encourage links between the universities and industry. In that spirit of cross-party consensus on higher education, will he join me in supporting all those engaged in the study and teaching of disciplines that greatly stimulate and develop the mind, but which do not have an immediate vocational application? May I also ask him...

Climate Change (22 Nov 2005)

Boris Johnson: Will the Minister give way?

Climate Change (22 Nov 2005)

Boris Johnson: I cannot think of anything more serious or more practical that this House could do tonight to alleviate the problems of climate change than to get rid of the ludicrous burden of the £135 charge, in addition to the cost of architectural drawings, that falls upon people who want to install solar panels.

Climate Change (22 Nov 2005)

Boris Johnson: Will the right hon. Gentleman give way?

Climate Change (22 Nov 2005)

Boris Johnson: I take it that the right hon. Gentleman does not therefore agree that planning permission should be revoked in the case of solar panels. Is he saying that that is a frivolous suggestion? On the point of air travel, I have had the pleasure of meeting him several times at airports—at Cagliari most recently. Is he seriously suggesting that people should give up their pleasure of holiday travel?
