Major Capital Contracts (Skills Training Requirements): Clause 59 — Demonstrations etc in the vicinity of Parliament (2 Mar 2010)

David Hanson: ...Garden Byelaws 2002, which make it an offence for a person to use amplification equipment on Parliament square garden without the prior permission of the Mayor of London, whom I recall is one Mr. Boris Johnson of this parish, who is supported by the Conservative party. Westminster city council, which I recall is run by a party other than the Labour party, has also made specific byelaws...

[Mrs. Janet Dean in the Chair] — Police Community Support Officers (25 Mar 2010)

David Hanson: a matter for the Mayor. He has chosen not to increase the precept, but if the commissioner has difficulties next year, responsibility will be placed fairly and squarely on the shoulders of Mr. Boris Johnson of this parish, who in due course will have to account to the public at large. I shall give the hon. Member for Carshalton and Wallington (Tom Brake) some further projections, none...

Deputy Speakers: Debate on the Address — [1st Day] (25 May 2010)

David Hanson: local communities, but in a way that did not involve direct elections, which I understand the proposed Bill will do. I fear that, and I pray in aid the Mayor of London-as I recall, one Boris Johnson-who did not take up his role as the directly elected chairman of the police authority and gave it to his deputy. I understand that there is a need for accountability but I do not believe...

Carers (Identification and Support): Police Grant Report (14 Jul 2010)

David Hanson: Today's cuts not only reduce the capital budget but take some £28 million from London's budget. I believe that the Mayor is still one Boris Johnson, who has already agreed not to raise the precept this year. That means a real cut not only, through inflation, on the precept, but in the grant.

Opposition Day — [7th Allotted Day]: Policing (24 Oct 2012)

David Hanson: Now that the Boris bung has worn off and the election is over, the people of London face real policing cuts, and my hon. Friend is right to point out the real concerns there will be. It is not just a question of policing cuts, because on top of all that the Government, despite their rhetoric, are actually making it harder for police officers to do their job. They are not only cutting budgets,...

Science, Technology and Engineering (Careers Information in Schools): Police (13 Feb 2013)

David Hanson: Indeed, and statistics show that 31,163 officers are serving in the Met, which is fewer than the total number that Boris Johnson inherited from Ken Livingstone only some years ago.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Neighbourhood Policing (25 Mar 2013)

David Hanson: As my right hon. and hon. Friends have said, Boris Johnson, aided by Home Office cuts, is to close 50% of London’s police stations, to lose 4,000 police constables and PCSOs, and to reduce police numbers in 17 of the 32 London boroughs. Will the Minister confirm that yesterday’s interview on “The Andrew Marr Show”, bad though it was, was the lesser of several evils the Mayor is...

Public Bill Committee: Modern Slavery Bill: New Clause 23 - Enabling provision to enable the Gangmasters Licensing Authority to tackle modern day slavery (14 Oct 2014)

David Hanson: ...of human trafficking occurring in industries that use a large amount of casual labour, such as construction and catering. I did not use my helpful vote in London a couple of years ago to vote for Boris Johnson, the Mayor of London, but Mr Boff's recommendation to him, which he is minded to accept, is that: “The mayor should call for the remit of the Gangmasters Licensing Authority to be...

Commonwealth Immigration and Visas — [Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] (27 Jan 2015)

David Hanson: .... Gentleman’s objectives. It suggests the restoration of the youth mobility visa, and considers the idea of Commonwealth concessions for tourist and business visas. We have heard the case for “Boris bilaterals”; I would not necessarily call them that, but there is potential to examine the idea in detail. The idea of a Commonwealth component to exceptional talent visas is worth...
