Housing and Planning Bill — [2nd Allocated Day]: Clause 67 — Payments to Secretary of State (12 Jan 2016)

Sadiq Khan: I will give way to the hon. Gentleman, who has been heckling me loudly and rather rudely from a sedentary position.

Housing and Planning Bill — [2nd Allocated Day]: Clause 67 — Payments to Secretary of State (12 Jan 2016)

Sadiq Khan: It usually takes a parliamentarian years to become out of touch, but the hon. Gentleman has done it in six months. Shelter says that for someone to be able to afford a £450,000 starter home, they will have to earn an annual salary of £77,000 and have a deposit of £98,000. Let us put aside for the moment the nurse, the junior doctor and the bus driver—people who get a starter job in a top...

Housing and Planning Bill — [2nd Allocated Day]: Clause 67 — Payments to Secretary of State (12 Jan 2016)

Sadiq Khan: I agree completely with the hon. Gentleman, but I would go a step further. I do not think that the Government are making a special case for London; I think that the combined effect of the Chancellor’s autumn statement and this Bill shows that the Government have it in for London. As I have said, I visited Camden today, where the average cost of a property to rent is 73% of the average...

Housing and Planning Bill — [2nd Allocated Day]: Clause 67 — Payments to Secretary of State (12 Jan 2016)

Sadiq Khan: I rise to speak in favour of amendment 89, tabled in my name and that of my right hon. Friend the Member for Wentworth and Dearne (John Healey) and other hon. Friends. I hope that colleagues will understand and forgive me if I focus my comments on London. The Bill before us will do nothing to help solve the housing crisis facing London.

Housing and Planning Bill — [2nd Allocated Day]: Clause 67 — Payments to Secretary of State (12 Jan 2016)

Sadiq Khan: The Member who has heckled describes the Bill as I would—rubbish. In fact, on balance, the likelihood is that the Bill will make the crisis even worse. As a result, London’s famed social mix is under threat. Many parts of inner London could be hollowed out, with the city becoming the preserve of the very rich. Do not just take my word for it. When the Government published this Bill, the...

Housing and Planning Bill — [2nd Allocated Day]: Clause 67 — Payments to Secretary of State (12 Jan 2016)

Sadiq Khan: I will give way once and then I want to make some progress.

Housing and Planning Bill — [2nd Allocated Day]: Clause 67 — Payments to Secretary of State (12 Jan 2016)

Sadiq Khan: My hon. Friend will know that I spend a lot of time visiting all 32 London boroughs. This morning I was in Camden, where people think that more than 40% of their family homes could be sold off as a consequence of this Government’s Bill. Nobody is against the aspiration of home ownership, but changes to the Bill are required, even at this late stage, to minimise the impact on London. That is...

Housing and Planning Bill — [2nd Allocated Day]: Clause 67 — Payments to Secretary of State (12 Jan 2016)

Sadiq Khan: The definition of “affordable homes” has been described by one hon. Member of this House as “elastic and misleading”. Does my hon. Friend agree with that characterisation from the hon. Member for Richmond Park (Zac Goldsmith), whom I congratulate, by the way, on becoming a dad again this week?

Housing and Planning Bill (Programme) (No. 2): New Clause 29 — Planning applications etc: setting of fees (5 Jan 2016)

Sadiq Khan: My hon. Friend will know how fed up Londoners are with the current record low level of home building and what a con the Government’s £450,000 starter homes are, but is she aware of the scale of the problem caused by developers selling homes in London to investors in Asia and the middle east before they have been completed and made available for purchase by Londoners? Will the new clause go...

Housing and Planning Bill (Programme) (No. 2): New Clause 29 — Planning applications etc: setting of fees (5 Jan 2016)

Sadiq Khan: May I just make clear that I have nothing against foreigners? Some of my best friends and the families whom I know are foreigners. However, this is about fairness, and about giving first dibs to Londoners.

Safer Neighbourhood Policing: London (5 Jan 2016)

Sadiq Khan: rose—

Safer Neighbourhood Policing: London (5 Jan 2016)

Sadiq Khan: I will make it easy.

Safer Neighbourhood Policing: London (5 Jan 2016)

Sadiq Khan: The Minister does not get it.

Safer Neighbourhood Policing: London (5 Jan 2016)

Sadiq Khan: I pay tribute to my hon. Friend the Member for Westminster North (Ms Buck) for securing the debate and for her excellent speech to kick things off. She is a tenacious and passionate campaigner on behalf of her constituents. In this debate on safer neighbourhood policing in London she has clearly shown that she understands the big issues facing not only her constituents, but our citizens. It...

Safer Neighbourhood Policing: London (5 Jan 2016)

Sadiq Khan: The police service does a fantastic job under very difficult circumstances. However, internet crime is going through the roof, along with serious youth violent crime, knife crime, knife crime with injury, gun crime and gun crime with firearm discharge. I pay tribute to the remarkable work done by police officers and CSOs.

Safer Neighbourhood Policing: London (5 Jan 2016)

Sadiq Khan: I am sure we all accept that technology is advancing and that evolution is a wonderful thing. I repeat the point that I pay tribute to officers, who do a remarkable job under difficult circumstances. However, the Mayor of London—he and the Policing Minister must accept this—aided and abetted by the Government, has filleted safer neighbourhood policing. We have heard some of the results of...

Business of the House: Backbench Business — Airports Commission: Final Report (26 Nov 2015)

Sadiq Khan: Thank you, Mr Deputy Speaker, for allowing me to speak in this important debate. I congratulate the hon. Members for Twickenham (Dr Mathias) and for Richmond Park (Zac Goldsmith), and my hon. Friend the Member for Brentford and Isleworth (Ruth Cadbury), on securing it. The first question we need to ask is whether we think there is a need for increased flight capacity in this part of the...

Business of the House: Backbench Business — Airports Commission: Final Report (26 Nov 2015)

Sadiq Khan: Of course I give way to the former Transport Minister.

Business of the House: Backbench Business — Airports Commission: Final Report (26 Nov 2015)

Sadiq Khan: The right hon. Gentleman will know that in 2010, after we lost that general election, the then Government decided to have the report from Davies, and it came out with three recommendations. I have listened to the points made by Davies, but I have also read the Supreme Court judgment. I have met some of the teachers who cannot teach during the daytime because of the noise in the classrooms in...

Business of the House: Backbench Business — Airports Commission: Final Report (26 Nov 2015)

Sadiq Khan: My hon. Friend makes a really important point about the need to invest in and support regional airports. Birmingham is our second city and we should support it, but I am worried that the report, if its recommendations are accepted, will not allow that to happen. Flight capacity in this part of the country could also be increased through a new runway at Gatwick airport. That would result in...
