It...

Cycling (16 Oct 2014)

George Young: ...already have a traffic advisory unit.”—[ Official Report, 11 July 1975; Vol. 895, c. 1026.] Undeterred by this response, Anthony Steen and I set up a parliamentary bicycle pool, years ahead of Boris. For £5, Members could join and borrow a bicycle for their journey around the capital. We had a good response, particularly for the photo opportunity in New Palace Yard which launched the...

Business of the House (10 May 2012)

George Young: Without wanting to put too much pressure on my coalition colleagues who sit on the Front Bench with me, I do, of course, congratulate Boris on his re-election, which was achieved with the support of my party and many of my hon. Friends on the Back Benches who worked tirelessly to get him re-elected. We have recently devolved more powers to the Mayor: powers under the Homes and Communities...

I am sure that the Mayor of London—Boris, who I hope will be re-elected—will be tuned into this exchange and that he will respond to the hon. Gentleman’s concern in due course.

Business of the House (26 Jan 2012)

George Young: ...confront Londoners later this year, when they will have to make a choice between the current Mayor of London and the old pretender, as he put it. One of the many reasons for continuing to vote for Boris is exactly the initiative that he mentions.

National Debt Cap: Sir Malcolm Jack KCB (12 Jul 2011)

George Young: ...been described. Sir Malcolm’s “Who’s Who” entry gives a remarkable list of recreations, including, “thinking for oneself…empires adrift, Johnsoniana”— Samuel, I think, rather than Boris— “oriental ceramics, Africana, escaping southwards.” We rejoice with Sir Malcolm that escaping southwards will soon be much easier. We thank him for his 44 years’ devoted service to...
