Orders of the Day — European Communities (Amendment) Bill: Considered in Committee [Progress, 19 April] (21 Apr 1993)

Tommy Graham: ...of Britain if we do not give them a referendum. I do not know which way the people of Britain would vote. However, that is not important. The point is that democracy is important. If it is good for Boris Yeltsin, it is good for other folk.

Bosnia (29 Apr 1993)

John Spellar: ...from Russia in the Security Council, where we would require unanimity in order to take such military action. We have had a welcome indication of a shift in the attitude of a post-referendum Boris Yeltsin. There was some criticism of the western Governments as to whether they should have required greater conditions from Yeltsin in return for the granting of aid, but that criticism was...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Russia (12 May 1993)

Peter Ainsworth: Does my right hon. and learned Friend agree that the sheer scale of the support shown by the Russian people for Boris Yeltsin and the programme of reforms gives a tremendous boost to international confidence in the long-term future of Russia? Does he also agree that in the near term substantial aid will be necessary to help the difficult process of economic transformation? Will he therefore...

Orders of the Day — Statement on the Defence Estimates (19 Oct 1993)

Julian Brazier: ...that we plan. Thirdly, we need a strategic review, not a measuring of commitments to resources but a serious look at wartime capabilities and a matching of those with resources. I am an admirer of Boris Yeltsin, but if an historian today were to compare the Weimar Republic of the 1920s with the present regime in Moscow, and did not know the end of either story, he would notice that the...

European Communities (9 Dec 1993)

Mr Teddy Taylor: ...a week—and an extra £3 a week for the cost of membership of the EC." I have been talking about such things for a long time. I know that Britain is now more popular in the EC. That nice chap Boris Johnson, who writes for The Daily Telegraph, says that Britain is more accepted because the Chancellor of the Exchequer has been disclosing his personal support for the goal of a single...

Business of the House (13 Jan 1994)

Mr John Butcher: ...and Russia? If Russians were treated to the sight of French, American and British planes bombing Serbia, it would feed the extremists in the Russian Parliament and make life very difficult for Boris Yeltsin. The debate could also provide an opportunity for those who urge the bombing to give an understanding that they will not be the first to condemn our right hon. Friend the Prime Minister...

Royal Navy (17 Feb 1994)

John Reid: That may be the case. I am not in a position to know whether the new policy of "back to Boris" has brought some benefits. If the Prime Minister was involved in the decision in any way, hon. Members on both sides of the House will welcome that. Perhaps he has made no reference to it since coming back from Moscow because there were secret talks—or it may all be nothing to do with him. If he...

Orders of the Day — Intelligence Services Bill [Lords] (22 Feb 1994)

Bill Cash: Did the hon. Gentleman note the article written by Boris Johnson a week last Sunday in which he suggested that questions of espionage and matters relating to GCHQ and so on had been transferred, as it were, to questions arising out of the European Union, defence questions and all these other matters? Given the hon. Gentleman's interest in national security, does he regard it as significant,...

Orders of the Day — Russia and Neighbouring States (13 Apr 1994)

Michael Fabricant: ...the forces of darkness gained the upper hand in the Parliament, the forces of reaction took hold of the reins of power in government. Reformers like Prime Minister Yigal Gaidar and Finance Minister Boris Fydorov were usurped by grey men in wide lapels from the military-industrial complex. Those included men from the Brezhnev and Gorbachev era, such as Gerashenko as head of the central bank...

Orders of the Day — Defence Estimates: Second Day (18 Oct 1994)

Julian Brazier: ...and in Germany at the time of the Weimar republic led to the two bloodiest conflicts of the 19th and 20th centuries. No one here today knows which way Russia will go next. We all wish President Boris Yeltsin well. We are pleased to hear of the splendid reception that the Russians are giving our monarch. However, what we know—as opposed to what we hope and think—is that Russia has an...

Orders of the Day — Chechnya (17 Jan 1995)

Dr Harold Elletson: ...in favour of negotiation, the west's response to Russia will have to be as firm as it was to China over Tiananmen square. That will be a sad day for all of us who believed in the new Russia and Boris Yeltsin. What concerns me most about the crisis is the effect on the wider Transcaucasus. I do not know whether one of the motives for the Russian Government's actions was their concern to...

Adjournment (Christmas) (20 Dec 1995)

Mr Sebastian Coe: ...very well. The Swedes produced Bjorn Borg and Stefan Edberg; the Germans, in exactly the same way, identified what I suppose one could describe as a niche market, through which the Steffi Grafs and Boris Beckers emerged. There is, therefore, a gentle and fairly subtle balance in all that. The landscape of sport in relation to its public face has changed dramatically, even since the time I...

Intergovernmental Conference (21 Mar 1996)

Robin Cook: ...colleagues and some members of the right-wing press are now pressing him to give an undertaking that he will veto the whole package if he does not deliver on his White Paper. Two days ago, a Mr. Boris Johnson, who I understand has aspirations to join the Conservative Benches—no doubt in order that he might better sustain the Foreign Secretary in his conduct of European relations—said...

Opposition Day: BSE (25 Jun 1996)

Mr Paul Tyler: ...in those early days was just as damaging to the eventual outcome. An excellent summary of the situation, to which I refer hon. Members, appears in today's The Daily Telegraph in an article by Boris Johnson, who said: Hogg terrified the fanning world with airy talk of a 4.5 million bovicide. 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....

Orders of the Day — Foreign Affairs and Defence (24 Oct 1996)

Michael Fabricant: ...accept that there is a difference between Chechnya and countries such as Poland? Historically, Chechnya is part of the Russian federation, whereas Poland was not. Does he also accept that, if Boris Nikolayevich Yeltsin were deposed, it would be wrong for us to intervene to try to decide who would succeed him'? He will recall the British intervention in Murmansk from 1919 to 1922, which was...

Orders of the Day — European Parliamentary Elections Bill: Russia (27 Oct 1998)

Paul Keetch: ...shelling Parliament in October 1993. The subsequent rivalry between the Duma and the president continues today. These are some of the factors that have formed a breeding ground for economic chaos. Boris Yeltsin's health, too, declining during this period, has led to a situation today which would have been, for many Russians, unthinkable only a few years ago—a Russian president who is...

Pet Quarantine (29 Oct 1998)

Elliot Morley: ...photographed with a donkey for his election address. He was not successful in his campaign, so those matters must be considered carefully. I have two cats, one of which was rescued. One is called Boris—I shall not say why he was named after Boris Yeltsin, but he is fairly laid back. The only stress that he would suffer from separation would be separation from his lunch. Just as we were...

Orders of the Day — Chess (15 Mar 1999)

Evan Harris: ...for chess players, bad for children's education and bad for this country's reputation. My earliest memory of chess—as perhaps is the Minister's—is of the dramatic 1972 world championship when Boris Spassky failed to defend his title against the extrovert, maverick American genius Bobby Fischer. I remember that British chess grew in the ensuing years following the publicity around...

Address in Reply to Her Majesty's Most Gracious Speech (18 Nov 1999)

Baroness Elles: ...recently, there must be guaranteed protection for those international aid workers who are willing to go to work in the area. At today's meeting in Istanbul, with the presence announced of Mr Boris Yeltsin, it can only be hoped that some progress towards stabilisation will be made. In the context of opening up the frontiers of the EU to central and eastern European states, positive...
