Opposition Day: Court of Auditors (13 Mar 1991)

Mr Jonathan Aitken: ...decided to cheat and continue the sort of fraudulent, creative accountancy cycle that we find in the auditors' report. Why do I say that? I shall quote from a fascinating article, written by Mr. Boris Johnson, the Brussels correspondent of The Daily Telegraph, which appears in this week's Spectator. Mr. Johnson states that the EC must make some cuts. The article states Just to keep within...

European Community (26 Jun 1991)

Opposition Day: BSE (25 Jun 1996)

He seemed arrogant in turning down help from his ministerial colleagues in handling the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Security: Asylum Seekers (23 Jul 1996)

Peter Lilley: ...those benefits. He has had the rug pulled from under him by his leader, who has let it be known in The Daily Telegraph that he agrees with me and not with his spokesman. An interesting article by Boris Johnson states: What was the Blair view of Peter Lilley's attempt to crack down on bogus asylum-seekers? Was he outraged like the Guardian editorialists … Did he condemn them? Far from it....

Opposition Day 15TH ALLOTTED DAY: National Health Service (29 Jun 2000)

Member for Rutland and Melton did not understand...
