Renewable Energy - Question for Short Debate (5 Jun 2019)

Lord Berkeley: ...shipping? Of course, the Port of Bristol has always been very much against the Severn barrage, as noble Lords will understand, for very good reasons. There was also a proposal, I think, as part of Boris Johnson’s idea of building an airport in the Thames estuary, to put a bridge or a dam across the Thames, not only to be able to get across by road or rail but also to generate...

Bus Services Bill [HL] - Committee (1st Day) (29 Jun 2016)

Lord Berkeley: My Lords, one thing that my noble friend has forgotten is that these Oyster cards should possibly be called Whitty cards, rather like the bicycles that are called Boris bikes. I am sure he would not want to be related to Boris in that way, but they are a great success. I am pleased to be able to tell your Lordships that the local authority in Cornwall is going to implement a similar thing. It...

Diplomatic Missions: Parking Fines — Question (21 Oct 2015)

Lord Berkeley: ...charges, for which the US won the prize for £9 million and the People’s Republic of China owed £2 million. Why does TfL not get out and clamp all these Rolls-Royces? Better still, why did Boris not think of clamping the Queen’s horse and carriage yesterday, with the president inside it? It might have taught him a lesson.

Cyclists: Accidents — Question (8 Feb 2012)

Lord Berkeley: ...junctions, and reduced the time for pedestrians and cyclists to go across. He has also reduced the amount of space on the road for cycle lanes, and things like that-in spite of bringing in the new "Boris bikes", which of course we all welcome. Could that be looked at? Do the Government think that the idea of a £200 million fund from the Campaign for Better Transport in London to help...

Comprehensive Spending Review: Motion to Take Note (Continued) (1 Nov 2010)

Lord Berkeley: ...major cities, which will mean that they have to pay even higher rail fares to get into the cities. There is not much alternative to getting into London. Perhaps I can offer the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, another phrase: transport is getting like Kosovo, too. Roads are going to become a free-for-all in places where there are no traffic jams; there is no more funding for speed cameras,...

Roads: Cyclists — Question (13 Oct 2010)

Lord Berkeley: .... Could he start with one of his own quangos, the Carbon Trust, which has just put out a circular to its members saying that they must not cycle to or from work or between meetings, especially on Boris bikes, because it has not been able to do a risk assessment on the quality and safety of Boris bikes?

Written Answers — House of Lords: Air Quality (29 Oct 2009)

Lord Berkeley: ...appeal by the Campaign for Clean Air in London in relation to information relating to a meeting that took place on 22 January 2009 between Lord Hunt of Kings Heath and the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, on air quality matters.

Written Answers — House of Lords: Air Quality (28 Oct 2009)

Lord Berkeley: To ask Her Majesty's Government on what dates in 2009 a Government minister has met the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, or his representatives, to discuss air quality related matters; and who was present at each meeting.

Written Answers — House of Lords: Air Quality (28 Oct 2009)

Lord Berkeley: To ask Her Majesty's Government what new measures to improve air quality in Greater London have been agreed between the Government and the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, in 2009; by how much each new measure agreed is expected to improve air quality; and in which year it is expected to do so.

Written Answers — House of Lords: Air Quality (28 Oct 2009)

Lord Berkeley: To ask Her Majesty's Government what consideration they have given to issuing legal directions to the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, to improve air quality in London under the Air Quality Standards Regulations 2007 or other legal instruments.

Planning Bill (8 Oct 2008)

Lord Berkeley: ...trains or cars? Would people be told that they should not use planes because the extra carbon cost is too expensive? Or should we say that an alternative site should be in the Thames estuary, as Mr Boris Johnson is apparently suggesting? That will come in a debate on site specificity and the other issues will come in future amendments. This is a useful group of amendments, which remind us...
