Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Spending Review (2 Jul 2019)

Tom Brake: ...for South West Surrey (Mr Hunt) for a £13 billion cut in corporation tax and a £12 billion increase in defence spending, or the proposal of the right hon. Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson) for a £9 billion higher rate income tax threshold cut, £11 billion national insurance contributions cut and showing the public sector “some love”? Would those unfunded bribes...

Yemen: Legislating for the Withdrawal Agreement (10 Sep 2018)

Tom Brake: ...set out that not only will there be the £39 billion divorce bill, give or take a little, and that European leaders, contrary to the words of the right hon. Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson), are not going to “go whistle,” but that there is no doubt we will be making ongoing payments for a number of years thereafter—one report suggests we will be making payments...

Electoral Commission Investigation: Vote Leave (17 Jul 2018)

Tom Brake: ...ideological endgame, and now we know that they cheated and broke the law. Can the Minister confirm whether the right hon. Members for Surrey Heath (Michael Gove) and for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson) and others involved will be jointly liable for the Vote Leave fine? Can she also confirm that of course this strengthens immeasurably the case for there to be a final say on the...

Uk Economy: Post-Referendum Assessment (23 May 2016)

Tom Brake: It is from Boris Johnson’s “The Churchill Factor”.

Public Bill Committee: Deregulation Bill: Clause 20 - Erection of public statues (London): removal of consent requirement (6 Mar 2014)

Tom Brake: ...process is not one that tends to hit the Secretary of State in the first place. We would have to rely, and I am sure we can, on local authorities. For instance, if a proliferation of statues of Boris Johnson was thought appropriate, we would have to rely on the local authorities maintaining control to ensure that the number across London was limited. On the point made by the hon. Member...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Police (8 Feb 2012)

Tom Brake: ...people’s confidence in the police to ensure that we have policing by consent. That is why the Liberal Democrat mayoral candidate, Brian Paddick—who I am sure would not be in favour of a bung to Boris, as the Labour party has put it—has focused heavily on stop and search and its impact, particularly on black and ethnic minority communities. It reduces the willingness for there to be...

Immigration Control — [Mr. John Cummings in the Chair] (6 Jan 2010)

Tom Brake: that those immigrants have taken. Before I conclude, I will touch briefly on the issue of amnesty. There is clearly a split within the Conservative party on that issue. Research conducted by Boris Johnson identified that there were about 750,000 irregular migrants in London. It is our view that under certain strictly controlled circumstances, as outlined by my hon. Friend, there is a...

Immigration Control — [Mr. John Cummings in the Chair] (6 Jan 2010)

Tom Brake: I wonder what the hon. Gentleman thinks of Boris Johnson's proposal that there should be an amnesty for irregular migrants.

[Mr. Peter Atkinson in the Chair] — Thames Valley Police (28 Jan 2009)

Tom Brake: ...if necessary talk to the outstanding and fine Liberal Democrat activists in his area to see what approach they have adopted. I mention one name that we have not yet heard in the debate—that of Boris Johnson. It cannot have escaped the attention of those Conservative Members who have spoken that the Mayor has a significant role in relation to the Metropolitan Police Service. I wonder...
