Orders of the Day — Railways and Transport Safety Bill (28 Jan 2003)

Boris Johnson: It is a great pleasure to be called at last. I would have found sitting here throughout the debate as some people find enduring the railways under this Government were it not for the fact that that has been alleviated by some good speeches, not least that of the hon. Member for Ilford, North (Linda Perham), whom it is a pleasure to follow. Of course, I agree with the vast bulk of the Bill....

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Iraq (27 Jan 2003)

Boris Johnson: Given the widespread anxiety among people who are perfectly willing to be persuaded that there is a case for war against Saddam Hussein, will the UN weapons inspectors, if they ask for more time to carry out their inspections, be given that time, and if so, how much more time will they be given? Who will decide how much more time they should be given?

Public Bill Committee: Extradition Bill: New Clause 4 - Compatability with Crime (21 Jan 2003)

Boris Johnson: I hesitate to interrupt my hon. Friend, but I wonder whether he is being a little too alarmist about the effect of foreign policemen coming to these shores. I watched a programme with my children the other night in which Inspector Clouseau was allowed to come here with no judicial authority whatever to investigate important crimes with the co-operation of the Government, so that seems to have...

Public Bill Committee: Extradition Bill: Clause 193 - National security (21 Jan 2003)

Boris Johnson: I do not mean that criminals should be able to flee back to England after having committed crimes in Spain. I mean only that they should understand that the crime is also an offence in Britain. We are asking for dual criminality, and for the Home Secretary to be able to arbitrate in cases where dual criminality does not exist.

Public Bill Committee: Extradition Bill: Clause 161 - Search of person on arrest (16 Jan 2003)

Boris Johnson: I rise in support of my hon. Friend's judicious suggestion. Can he clarify what he envisages under the term ''hat''? A Rastafarian who is asked to remove his hat may claim that it is an article of religious importance. I wonder, a fortiori, whether a Sikh would take umbrage at being asked to remove his turban. Does my hon. Friend think that a turban constitutes a hat for the purposes of his...

Public Bill Committee: Extradition Bill: Clause 53 - Presumed consent to other (14 Jan 2003)

Boris Johnson: I want only to ask the Minister whether mutual recognition is the right term to apply in this case. Mutual recognition, as customarily used in the European Union context, means that a widget in this country is accepted as a standard in another EU country, and vice versa. What principle of legal philosophy does the Minister rely on to decide that mutual recognition should apply exclusively to...

Hunting Bill (16 Dec 2002)

Boris Johnson: Can the Minister give an idea of what extra resources will be committed to the police to deal with the thousands of people who will be criminalised by this absurd Bill?

Orders of the Day — Extradition Bill (9 Dec 2002)

Boris Johnson: It is a great pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Broxtowe (Dr. Palmer). I congratulate him on speaking for more than half an hour. I oppose the European extradition warrant because it is a bad law founded on a good principle that has been wildly misapplied by our masters in the European Union who have agreed the warrant. That is the principle, to which the Minister alluded, of mutual...

Communications Bill (3 Dec 2002)

Boris Johnson: It is? What is XTaggart"?

Home Affairs (20 Nov 2002)

Boris Johnson: I am very grateful for the chance to speak in this debate. I realise that at this stage in our proceedings, it is likely that a great many excellent points will already have been made, so I hope the House will forgive me if I reiterate a couple of those points, and especially those made by my hon. Friend the Member for Stratford-on-Avon (Mr. Maples) about the European arrest warrant, which...

Address in Reply to Her Majesty's Most Gracious Speech (18 Nov 2002)

Lord Waddington: ...Guardian is full of advertisements not for teachers and nurses, but for consultation officers, outreach workers, ethnic minority project leaders, community development workers (Turkish speaking). Boris Johnson wrote recently about an advertisement for the post of director of infrastructure and community affairs in the Government Office of the East Midlands. The fatuous job description...
