Oral Answers to Questions — Public Accounts Commission: European Council (25 Meh 2007)

Tony Blair: My hon. Friend is absolutely right, and it is one of the reasons why the deal that we have concluded is a good one for this country. Where we have agreed to QMV, we have not reluctantly accepted it; in the area that he is talking about, which is energy market liberalisation, we have advocated it. It is right that we do that. We know perfectly well that there may be countries that will always...

Oral Answers to Questions — Public Accounts Commission: European Council (25 Meh 2007)

Tony Blair: No, I am afraid that I do not agree with that at all, and the reason why I think it is important that we proceed in the way that I have outlined is that the treaty is a conventional amending treaty. We have never had referendums on them. I might remind the hon. Gentleman that in the one referendum that we did have, we voted to stay in Europe.

Oral Answers to Questions — Public Accounts Commission: European Council (25 Meh 2007)

Tony Blair: What is he talking about? [ Interruption . ] We have been talking about this for two years.

Oral Answers to Questions — Public Accounts Commission: European Council (25 Meh 2007)

Tony Blair: Actually, I am afraid that I do know. The European institute of technology is a good idea, and we happen to support it—

Oral Answers to Questions — Public Accounts Commission: European Council (25 Meh 2007)

Tony Blair: The hon. Gentleman is shaking his head already. I was just about to explain what it does. It allows us, across Europe, to work on technological projects that have a Europe-wide application—but because it has the word "European" in it, he is against it.

Written Answers — Prime Minister: Honours (25 Meh 2007)

Tony Blair: The information requested is not held centrally and to obtain it would incur disproportionate costs.

Written Answers — Prime Minister: IBM Corporation (25 Meh 2007)

Tony Blair: I have nothing further to add to the answer I gave the hon. Member on 18 June 2007, Official Report, column 1428W.

Written Answers — Prime Minister: Libyan Arab Republic (25 Meh 2007)

Tony Blair: Since 1999 the Government have published an annual list of all visits overseas undertaken by Cabinet Ministers costing £500 or more during each financial year. Copies of these lists are available in the Library of the House. Information on the number of officials accompanying Ministers on overseas visits is included in the list. All Ministers' travel arrangements are in accordance with the...

Written Answers — Prime Minister: Lord Birt (25 Meh 2007)

Tony Blair: I refer the hon. Member to the press notice issued by my Office on 15 December 2005. The press notice is available on the Number 10 website: http: //www.number-10.gov.uk/output/Page8774.asp, and a copy has been placed in the Library of the House.

Written Answers — Prime Minister: Members: Correspondence (25 Meh 2007)

Tony Blair: As far as I am aware, my Office had not received the letter at the time this question was tabled.

Written Answers — Prime Minister: Saudi Arabia: Arms Trade (25 Meh 2007)

Tony Blair: I refer the hon. Member to the answer given to him on 19 June 2007, Official Report, column 1610W, by my hon. Friend the Minister for State at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (Dr. Howells).

Written Answers — Prime Minister: Saudi Arabia: Arms Trade (25 Meh 2007)

Tony Blair: I refer the hon. Member to the statement made by my hon. and learned Friend the Solicitor-General on 14 December 2006, Official Report, columns 1119-20, and to his response during the debate on 7 February 2007, Official Report, columns 875-76.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (20 Meh 2007)

Tony Blair: Before listing my engagements, I know that the whole House will want to join me in paying tribute to Lance-Corporal James Cartwright of Badger Squadron, 2nd Royal Tank Regiment, who died in a vehicle accident while on active operation in Iraq on Saturday night. We send our sympathy and condolences to his family and friends. The whole House will be sad to learn of the death of Piara Khabra,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (20 Meh 2007)

Tony Blair: It is particularly appropriate that my hon. Friend asks that question after the sad news about Piara Khabra. I endorse entirely what he says about the tremendous contribution made by the Indian community—1 million of them—in this country. The state of the relationship between the UK and India has never been stronger, and it is a wonderful example of how our relationships with countries...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (20 Meh 2007)

Tony Blair: Let me explain what is actually happening. We have exceeded even the top-end projection for the number of people in prison—that projection having been made last year—so there is a requirement for us to release prisoners early, 18 days before the end of their sentences—in other words, 18 days before they would have been released anyway—as a temporary measure while new prison places are...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (20 Meh 2007)

Tony Blair: As I have just explained to the right hon. Gentleman, the projection that we were given at about this time last year—we deal with this matter on a year-by-year basis—was a projection that we have exceeded, and have exceeded now. We must therefore take this temporary measure, but let us be absolutely clear: the reason there are more people in prison than ever before is that under this...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (20 Meh 2007)

Tony Blair: First, let me make something clear about the Criminal Justice Act. The Tory party voted against the Criminal Justice Act, and the fact that the right hon. Gentleman did not turn up to vote on it does not alter that. The reason we have more people in prison today is the tough measures that we introduced for violent and sexual offenders—which the right hon. Gentleman and his party...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (20 Meh 2007)

Tony Blair: The right hon. Gentleman said that investment in prisons has not gone up. It has gone up by 35 per cent. in real terms, so when he gets to his feet again, let him apologise for saying that investment in prisons has not gone up. It has gone up, and his party voted against the Budget measure that introduced that. On the reasons for introducing this measure, we have said again and again that it...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (20 Meh 2007)

Tony Blair: We hoped for a long time to avoid having to do this, but we have had to do it because, as I have said, the projections for the prison population, which we do on a year-by-year basis, have been exceeded even at the top end. As I have also said, I regret having to do this. However, as a result of the measures announced yesterday and those announced by the Chancellor in the Budget, we will now...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (20 Meh 2007)

Tony Blair: When we came to power in 1997, crime had doubled. When we came to power in 1997, there were no proper plans for making sure that we had the money to invest in our prison system. As I have said, I regret very much having to take the measures on early release. However, over the 10 years of this Government we have reduced crime, increased the number of police officers and introduced measures on...
