Social Housing and Regeneration: Earl’s Court and West Kensington (20 Feb 2018)

Andrew Slaughter: Hammersmith. The deal done with TfL on the exhibition sites was hugely preferential to Capco, despite TfL owning the freehold—perhaps the right hon. Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson) was also not trying too hard—but that looks like a master stroke compared with the deal that the Hammersmith Tories did for the estate land. In 2013, Hammersmith and Fulham Council...

EU Nationals in the Uk (6 Jul 2016)

Andrew Slaughter: I thank the Minister for mentioning the extremely sobering attack in Hammersmith. We are waiting to hear whether, like the hon. Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson), the Minister will support the motion tonight, but it does not sound like it. Indeed, it sounds rather as though he is under instructions not to, which it makes it doubly bad that his boss the Home Secretary is...

Oral Answers to Questions — Attorney-General: Local Government Finance (10 Feb 2015)

Andrew Slaughter: ...the largest ever number of local police funded by the council, at 44 police constables funded, which, to take up the theme of this afternoon’s previous debate, makes up in some way for the cuts Boris Johnson has made in the Met; we have had a 25% increase in voluntary sector funding, with an emphasis on homelessness and social inclusion; and we have begun the programme of turning the...

Business of the House: Backbench Business — [25th Allotted Day] — Social Housing in London (5 May 2011)

Andrew Slaughter: ...inner cities. We have no Conservative councillors in Liverpool, Sheffield or Newcastle and just one in Manchester. Many inner London boroughs remain either Labour or Liberal Democrat-run…Finally Boris Johnson’s stunning victory in our capital city was largely a suburban revolt. Why is this? The current state and levels of social housing in our inner cities may provide part of the...

Business of the House: Backbench Business — [25th Allotted Day] — Social Housing in London (5 May 2011)

Andrew Slaughter: ...of “affordable” in Hammersmith and Fulham now goes up to £80,000 a year, and I am sorry but I do not accept that that is reasonable. Let us put one myth to bed today, and that is that Boris Johnson is in some way committed to affordable housing in London. His own figures show that there will be fewer than 2,000 affordable housing starts this year and none next year.

Former Metal Mines: Local Government Finance (9 Feb 2011)

Andrew Slaughter: ...alternative provision was to go to the Iranian embassy. The Kurdish Association for Refugees is also based in the building, and runs not only a cultural advice centre but a museum-one promoted by Boris Johnson on his tourist trail of London. It was told that the alternative to being booted out on to the street was to go to an organisation for the south Asian population based somewhere in...

Local Newspapers — [Mrs. Janet Dean in the Chair] (13 Jan 2010)

Andrew Slaughter: ...the House will have heard, my opponent, a prospective parliamentary candidate, gets half a page to himself. However, I agree with the hon. Member for Wantage (Mr. Vaizey). I would like to praise Boris Johnson for cancelling The Londoner, but I do not need to because he is on the front of the Hammersmith and Fulham News, with a number of other Tory politicians appearing inside.

Climate Change (5 Nov 2009)

Andrew Slaughter: ...we had one Opposition Front Bencher saying only a couple of months ago that the plans for a third runway would be revisited if a Conservative Government were elected. At the same time, we had Boris Johnson initially saying that Heathrow would be closed and a new airport built in the Thames estuary, whereas he now says that that new airport will be in addition to a two-runway Heathrow, and...

Royal Assent (21 Jul 2009)

Andrew Slaughter: ...were dodged and answers to questions were evaded-there was nothing in writing at the time. Plans were held up because of the continued presence of Ken Livingstone as Mayor of London, but when Boris Johnson was elected last year, the council moved swiftly ahead, first by dropping all plans for new affordable housing, by accelerating small-scale demolitions, by designated sales and by...

Local Press (20 Jan 2009)

Andrew Slaughter: ...—they are dire in the extreme—that contain information about the mayor's engagements and are produced by one hard-pressed information officer. Probably the only thing on which I agree with Boris Johnson is getting rid of The Londoner. He did that because it was absolutely useless.

Local Press (20 Jan 2009)

Andrew Slaughter: Touché. I recognise that. It has to be said that Boris Johnson did not need The Londoner because the Evening Standard is the house journal of the Conservative party and will print whatever he says in any event. However, I am not talking about such publications, but the much more sophisticated type of publication that replicates what local newspapers used to do and pretends to be a local...

Local Press (20 Jan 2009)

Andrew Slaughter: ...information and views are coming. I am talking about a piece of subterfuge that prevents the public from knowing the truth in a locality. The hon. Gentleman would do well to follow the example of Boris Johnson rather than the insidious example that I have given. If that is the view of the Conservative Front Bench, that is to be regretted. I am sorry that that intervention has caused me to...

Topical Debate: Policing in London (27 Mar 2008)

Andrew Slaughter: ...any event, but that the Conservatives in Hammersmith say that they did not. That extra policing has been introduced in only two wards, displacing crime into other wards. The Evening Standard—the Boris Johnson house magazine, so I hope Conservative Members will trust it—said that of the 20 areas with the most residential burglaries, two are in Hammersmith and Fulham, in wards that...

Orders of the Day: Housing and Regeneration Bill (27 Nov 2007)

Andrew Slaughter: ...because I feel certain that the current Mayor will be re-elected next May; otherwise I should not be making the argument so strongly. Last week, I had the misfortunate to read a speech, headlined "Boris Johnson sets out his housing vision for London", which contained the following gems: we should not be "getting too hung up on percentages of affordable accommodation...There isn't a...
