Jim Fitzpatrick: ...Jenkin). He rightly said that this is a crucial issue for UK plc, but after that I stopped agreeing with him as he went on to develop his support for the estuary airport and the proposal of Mayor Boris Johnson, which is very much the wrong one. His suggestion of closing Heathrow would be an economic disaster for London, certainly for west London. I also welcome the Minister to the Chamber....

Backbench Business — Private Members’ Bills: Cycling (2 Sep 2013)

Jim Fitzpatrick: ...raised related to fatalities and punishment to fit the crime. We all hear tragic stories from constituents about punishments that do not fit the crime. On the conversion of wider pavements, Boris Johnson certainly has that in London, particularly on the Embankment. What I find fascinating is the counter-culture that comes through from my cyclist constituents. They complained about bad...

[Mr David Amess in the Chair] — Air Transport (Northern Ireland) (27 Jun 2013)

Jim Fitzpatrick: The only difficulty we have with the Davies commission is the timetable the Government have given it to arrive at its conclusions, which is after the 2015 general election. Like Mayor Boris Johnson, the CBI and the aviation industry, we would much rather the deadline was brought forward to before the general election, so that parties have an opportunity to examine the recommendations and...

Opposition Day — [13th Allotted Day]: Rising Cost of Transport (9 Jan 2013)

Jim Fitzpatrick: ...on aviation policy in 2015. My hon. Friend the Member for Garston and Halewood is not the only Member critical of the delay in the announcement by the Davies commission, and she is joined by Mayor Boris Johnson and Lord Heseltine. In my view, however, the biggest mistake—

Business of the House (1 Nov 2012)

Jim Fitzpatrick: ...the Government to look into aviation. Lord Heseltine, echoing the call from the shadow Secretary of State for Transport, says that the report due in 2015 will be far too slow in arriving, and Mayor Boris Johnson is threatening legal action against the Government if they do not advance that timetable. Is there any indication from the Department for Transport that it will be issuing a...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Benefit Cap (20 Jun 2012)

Jim Fitzpatrick: ...between them have 4,000 children, telling them that their benefits will be cut on 1 April by £200 a month on average. This will cause them either to rack up rent arrears or to have to move. Mayor Boris Johnson—

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Benefit Cap (20 Jun 2012)

Jim Fitzpatrick: Mayor Boris Johnson says he will not preside over the removal of the poor from inner London. Boris gets it: why don’t the Government?

Business of the House (14 Jun 2012)

Jim Fitzpatrick: 900 families in my constituency saying that their benefits are to be cut by an average of £200. This could lead to many thousands of children having to leave their homes in inner London. Mayor Boris Johnson has said that he is opposed to it. Will the Government give us some time to debate it?

Business of the House: Whitsun Recess (24 May 2012)

Jim Fitzpatrick: ...’s “Red Collar” campaign. The main issue I want to raise is that of housing benefit. I supported Ken Livingstone in the mayoral campaign, but I have to give credit to the Conservative Mayor Boris Johnson for certain comments that he has made in recent months and years. In October 2010, he told BBC London: “The last thing we want to have in our city is a situation such as Paris...

Thames River Crossings (19 Jan 2012)

Jim Fitzpatrick: ...has just said about the London Gateway port mentioned by the Minister in the previous debate, as well as the idea for a Thames estuary airport, which is all over the papers this morning because of Boris Johnson’s comments in The Daily Telegraph, and given that the centre of gravity in London has been moving east for the past 20 years and will continue to do so, does she think that, if we...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Ticket Office Closures (12 Jan 2012)

Jim Fitzpatrick: Costs impact on fares, as the Minister has just said. In London, Conservative Mayor Boris Johnson—[Hon. Members: “Hooray!”] I expected a more Pavlovian response, Mr Speaker. Mayor Johnson has approved rises on average of nearly 6%, yet Labour mayoral candidate Ken Livingstone—[Hon. Members: “Hooray!”] Much better, Mr Speaker. Both sides of the House appreciate the Labour...

[Mr James Gray in the Chair] — Backbench Business — Transport (CSR) (25 Nov 2010)

Jim Fitzpatrick: ...of the capital in the years ahead. I look forward to the Mayor of London revisiting the question of an additional crossing, which might marginally help the hon. Member for Thurrock. When the Mayor-Boris Johnson or his successor-comes forward with a proposal, as I am sure he will, I hope that the Department for Transport will support and encourage it. It will obviously be a financial risk...
