Point of Order: Trident (14 Mar 2007)

David Borrow: Will my hon. Friend give way?

Point of Order: Trident (14 Mar 2007)

David Borrow: I understand the difficulty that the hon. Gentleman and his colleagues face today. On the assumption that the Government motion is passed, will he give an undertaking that the Liberal Democrats will have a clear position by the next general election? When people vote in it, they need to know whether they will get a pro-Trident or an anti-Trident policy—or will the Liberal Democrats sit on...

Point of Order: Trident (14 Mar 2007)

David Borrow: On that point, will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Point of Order: Trident (14 Mar 2007)

David Borrow: Given that all three major parties in the House stood at the last election on a platform of maintaining Trident, does my right hon. Friend agree that it would be wrong for us to make a decision today that would prevent the British people from electing a Government at the next election who would either retain or get rid of Trident, by pre-empting such a decision by voting against the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Afghanistan (Force Levels) (26 Feb 2007)

David Borrow: I am concerned that those nations who are prepared to put their servicemen and women in the most dangerous situations could find support within their home communities undermined by the failure of NATO allies to get involved. Could my right hon. Friend give an assessment of how robust and for how long the existing support will continue? If there is not support for the commitment across the...

Orders of the Day: Disabled Children (Family Support) Bill (23 Feb 2007)

David Borrow: Does my hon. Friend agree that one of the problems is that families with disabled children are so stretched in caring for those children that they do not have the voice to argue for the necessary provision? In Lancashire, when an attempt was made to close Maplewood respite care centre in Bamber Bridge in the constituency of my hon. Friend the Member for Preston (Mr. Hendrick), there was a...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (31 Jan 2007)

David Borrow: Last year the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds purchased 170 hectares of land at Hesketh Outmarsh in the Ribble estuary in my constituency—land that was rescued from the sea 20 years ago. In a few months' time, breaches will be made in the sea wall to allow that land to return to salt marsh, which will allow a nature reserve to develop. More importantly, it will ensure that the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Police Detection Rates (15 Jan 2007)

David Borrow: Does my hon. Friend agree that the introduction of the fixed-penalty notice for disorder has played a part in increasing the detection of crime by ensuring that officers are not spending time taking people to the police station after they have been arrested and going through the courts? Instead, people are being punished straight away for minor offences of disorder; they pay their...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: HIV/AIDS ( 9 Jan 2007)

David Borrow: Does my hon. Friend agree that work needs to be more targeted at younger gay men? It is important to emphasise that contracting HIV does not mean simply taking a pill a day, when everything is okay. Drug treatment for HIV is very unpleasant and is not 100 per cent. effective, so we need to get that message through to younger gay men.

Church Commissioners: European Council (18 Dec 2006)

David Borrow: It has been suggested that the question of enlargement be linked to a resolution of the difficulties over the EU constitution. Does my right hon. Friend agree that it would be wrong for any of the accession countries, whether Turkey, Croatia or Macedonia, to be refused membership, having reached all the criteria required of them, on the basis that the EU has been unable to resolve its...

Business of the House: Post Office Network (14 Dec 2006)

David Borrow: What will be the criteria for the Post Office account card when it is retendered? Will a minimum number of outlets need to be part of the network, and will that minimum number allow more than one organisation, in addition to the Post Office, to bid for it?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements ( 6 Dec 2006)

David Borrow: At last night's meeting of the all-party group on AIDS, Martin Narey of Barnardo's explained that 250 children in this country are kept alive by NHS AIDS drugs, and that those children are due to be sent back to their country of origin. Will my right hon. Friend agree to meet a small delegation to find a way of ensuring that the life of every child matters?

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

David Borrow: Would my right hon. Friend agree that if his recommendation is accepted, it would be possible for a future Parliament in 2014 to decide not to implement a Trident replacement, but it would not be possible for that Parliament to implement a Trident replacement if this Parliament decides not to?

Orders of the Day: A Citizens' Agenda (26 Oct 2006)

David Borrow: I want to make a few brief points in the last few minutes of the debate. I did not altogether agree with the contribution by the right hon. Member for Wells (Mr. Heathcoat-Amory). If we are to engage the citizens of Europe within the European Union, we need a clear, understandable way of making decisions. The existing European Union decision-making process is confused. Power lies in the...

Orders of the Day: A Citizens' Agenda (26 Oct 2006)

David Borrow: Following on from my question to my right hon. Friend the Minister, would the hon. Gentleman care to explain whether his party believes that a 27-member EU will need changes to its internal management? If so, what ideas will it propose in the coming debate?

Orders of the Day: A Citizens' Agenda (26 Oct 2006)

David Borrow: I hope that my comments will be considered helpful. Does my right hon. Friend agree that when it comes to a European Union of 27 states, the status quo in terms of the EU's internal arrangements is not acceptable or practical, and that certain changes will be necessary to make it work effectively? Does he agree that all parties in the House, and all parts of all parties, will have to grasp...
