Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Individual Electoral Registration (15 Med 2010)

Nicholas Boles: Is my hon. Friend as puzzled as I am by the argument of the right hon. Member for Blackburn (Mr Straw), which appears to be that we cannot adopt fully equal constituencies until we have dealt with the inadequacies of the register over which his party presided, and we cannot do anything to introduce the improvements in the register at any more than a glacial pace? Is not this obstructionism...

Fixed-term Parliaments Bill (13 Med 2010)

Nicholas Boles: It has been a fascinating five hours in this debate, and I have learned a great deal. I have been vastly entertained, not least by my hon. Friend the Member for North East Somerset (Jacob Rees-Mogg), but I have to admit to being somewhat puzzled. I thought that I would hear the great champions of parliamentary privilege and parliamentary sovereignty.

Fixed-term Parliaments Bill (13 Med 2010)

Nicholas Boles: One of the great champions has not been called, but he has certainly intervened many times, and we have heard from other great champions, not least my hon. Friend the Member for Christchurch (Mr Chope). I thought that I would hear them make an argument for giving Parliament even more control over matters as vital to our democracy as the timing of elections, but no. We have been given an...

Fixed-term Parliaments Bill (13 Med 2010)

Nicholas Boles: I have always found it easy to disagree with academics on almost any subject, and I disagree with Professor Blackburn on that. My hon. Friend's question leads me neatly to my next point. With much more trepidation, I have to say that I respectfully disagree with what the Clerk of the House said in his contribution to our evidence about the risks posed by the Bill. I recognise that I am...

Fixed-term Parliaments Bill (13 Med 2010)

Nicholas Boles: I certainly agree with the right hon. Gentleman on that point-I should like to call him my right hon. Friend; I am very keen on people joining the coalition, as Members might know-but I am not sure whether the courts are any more capricious than Members of this House. Is that a terrible thing to say? I am troubled by the proposal of the Clerk of the House, and I fear that those on my own side...

Fixed-term Parliaments Bill (13 Med 2010)

Nicholas Boles: If people have to go to the polls only once and have to take seven decisions that will affect every single part of government, I suggest that that will make them more likely to vote in the "lower" elections than they would if those elections took place on their own, particularly when people might be busy, have to take the kids to school and get to work. I suspect that the turnout would...

Fixed-term Parliaments Bill (13 Med 2010)

Nicholas Boles: rose -

Fixed-term Parliaments Bill (13 Med 2010)

Nicholas Boles: The right hon. Gentleman criticises my right hon. Friend the Deputy Prime Minister for not giving time for consultation, yet even before the Bill was published he had taken on board concerns expressed on both sides of the House about a specific provision relating to early Dissolution and radically changed his proposal. It seems to me that he is listening much more intently than the right hon....

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Proposed Public Expenditure Cuts (13 Med 2010)

Nicholas Boles: If we do not put up VAT, do not cut defence expenditure-as the Labour party proposed during Defence questions-and do not cut the welfare bill, as the right hon. Member for Normanton, Pontefract and Castleford (Yvette Cooper) proposes, will the Chancellor confirm that the only way to have a sustainable budget is to slash spending on the NHS?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (14 Gor 2010)

Nicholas Boles: The BBC Trust has described BBC 1 and BBC 2 as boring. Does my right hon. Friend agree that the gaiety of the nation would be immeasurably enhanced by the televising of a 17-part psychodrama called "New Labour", with Lord Mandelson playing himself?

Opposition Day — [3rd allotted day]: Schools Funding ( 7 Gor 2010)

Nicholas Boles: The whole House welcomes the Secretary of State's gracious apology. However, is not the real deceit the more heinous because it was intentional-the one perpetrated by Labour Members who ran around the country during the election campaign promising school rebuilding programmes that they knew the money was not there to supply? That is a disgrace.

Nato: Education Funding ( 5 Gor 2010)

Nicholas Boles: Does my right hon. Friend agree that it is curious that Labour Members seem so obsessed with state-of-the-art buildings and so uninterested in the quality of teaching in schools? Will he confirm that our Government will have different priorities?

Nato: Political and Constitutional Reform ( 5 Gor 2010)

Nicholas Boles: Does my right hon. Friend agree that the right hon. Member for Holborn and St Pancras (Frank Dobson) is an excellent constituency MP, thereby demonstrating that he is fully capable of representing 86,000 constituents, contrary to what the right hon. Member for Blackburn (Mr Straw) said, and that all of us should be capable of doing the same?

English Language Schools (24 Meh 2010)

Nicholas Boles: Thank you, Mr Deputy Speaker. I should first apologise for my croaky voice: I spent rather too much of yesterday afternoon shouting at the television. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Bournemouth West (Conor Burns) on what was, frankly, a very classy maiden speech. I hope that it will be the first of many conventions that he will overturn. I also declare an interest, in that I...

UK Policy on the Middle East (14 Meh 2010)

Nicholas Boles: Thank you, Mr Deputy Speaker. May I, too, welcome you to the Chair? You look very fine in it. I welcome my hon. Friend the Minister to his post, which I know he will undertake as well as he has undertaken every other post in which I have worked with him in the past. I congratulate my neighbour, my hon. Friend the Member for Sleaford and North Hykeham (Stephen Phillips), on his excellent...

Business of the House (10 Meh 2010)

Nicholas Boles: Many of my constituents were outraged when my predecessor, who was elected as a Conservative, defected to the Labour party and did not stand down to cause a by-election. Will the Leader of the House make time for a debate on whether hon. Members should be required to cause a by-election if they defect to a different party from the one on whose manifesto they were elected?

Speaker's Statement: Economic Affairs and Work and Pensions ( 8 Meh 2010)

Nicholas Boles: Thank you for calling me, Mr. Deputy Speaker, and for giving me the opportunity to address this House for the first time. I start by congratulating hon. Members who have just concluded their maiden speeches. I hope that, after six hours here, they enjoyed the experience, and I hope the House will forgive me if the microphones pick up the mild rumbling of my stomach at this late hour in the...
