Orders of the Day — Racial and Religious Hatred Bill (21 Jun 2005)

Boris Johnson: We are all trying to grapple with what the Bill will ban and why.

Will such recitation be captured by...

Orders of the Day — Prevention of Terrorism Bill: Clause 1 — Power to make control orders (28 Feb 2005)

Boris Johnson: I have no hesitation in admitting that I do not understand one particular point.

Orders of the Day — Prevention of Terrorism Bill (23 Feb 2005)

Orders of the Day — Prevention of Terrorism Bill (23 Feb 2005)

Boris Johnson: My right hon. and learned Friend adverts to a relevant paradox in the whole business. It is a sign of the Government's incompetence that they have been brought to this pass, because they had a choice.

Orders of the Day — Prevention of Terrorism Bill (23 Feb 2005)

Boris Johnson: My hon. Friend is learned beyond my wildest dreams in matters connected with the European Union, and he makes an entirely valid point.

Orders of the Day — Prevention of Terrorism Bill (23 Feb 2005)

Boris Johnson: I am grateful to the hon. Gentleman for so lucidly anticipating the very point that I was about to make. It may be relatively simple to satisfy a judge that the matters relied upon are capable of constituting grounds for a control order, but that is very different from properly testing, in the adversarial context of a court, whether the information is any good, or whether it has been laid...

Orders of the Day — Prevention of Terrorism Bill (23 Feb 2005)

Boris Johnson: I am most grateful and I am glad that we are united on the subject of the debate. The right hon. Gentleman constructively outlined what the Government should do. He said that wire-tapping evidence should be admissible in court. It is a mystery to me that the Government reject his wise counsel. I should like to know why. I believe that they do so because, as my right hon. Friend the Member...
