Energy and Climate Change: Energy Efficiency (19 Jun 2014)

Jonathan Reynolds: ...December when they responded to concern about rising bills by choosing to cut funding for energy efficiency measures. Given that the consultation on the cuts closed last month, and given that even Boris Johnson submitted evidence that they were too severe, will the Minister tell us whether there is any scope for mitigation of the reduction in the ECO targets, so that the 440,000 people who...

Criminal Justice and Courts Bill: Clause 58 — Interveners and costs (17 Jun 2014)

David Burrowes: ...’s support is welcome. The Justice Secretary and the Home Secretary have been vocal and public in their support for the new clause, as have a number of politicians across the field. The Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, has been particularly vocal, and has campaigned with us on this issue for a long time. It may surprise members of the public that we are here in the first place and to...

Bus Services — [Nadine Dorries in the Chair] (17 Jun 2014)

Jim Shannon: ...that are paramount for young people, and I want to touch on those. From those with a passion for being green, I can already hear the cry, “Get on your bike!”, but we cannot do the same as Boris Johnson here in London. It is not possible to cycle, because people have to take long rural roads to get to their work or school, and there are also the safety issues that come from...

English Parish Churches — Motion to Take Note (12 Jun 2014)

the Bishop of Norwich: ...people, including some from nearby settlements, formed the cast of a four-act modern mystery play, “The Legend of the Rood”. It was written by a Norfolk storyteller. It was full of humour and local references. It was the story of salvation with a contemporary twist. Pharaoh looked rather like Boris Johnson. Moses was based on “Citizen Smith”, who sought the...

Queen’s Speech — Debate (2nd Day) (5 Jun 2014)

Baroness Kramer: ...loan in London for high-priced houses. Mechanisms like that can help us deal with those bubbles without the necessary resort, which will have to happen at some point, to interest rates. Somebody raised the question of foreign buyers. Noble Lords will know that Boris Johnson now has an agreement with builders in London that they will market first in London rather than overseas. There are...

Bills Presented — Finance Bill: Cost of Living: Energy and Housing (5 Jun 2014)

Mary Macleod: ...agreed with her on devolution in England outside London and on cities being the engines of economic growth. As a London MP, I completely agree on that. We only need to look at the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, to see how successful a mayor can be and what he and his team can deliver. I pay tribute to my hon. Friend the Member for Portsmouth North (Penny Mordaunt) on her outstanding...

Scottish Parliament: Procurement Reform (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3 (13 May 2014)

James Kelly: ...a chance to give cleaners and care home staff from Cambuslang to Carnoustie a fair deal. The living wage is delivered in London, yet here in Scotland we are dragging our heels on the bill. Why is it that Boris Johnson can be so bold yet Nicola Sturgeon is so timid? Nicola Sturgeon’s amendments reflect the fact that the Scottish National Party has moved its position from stage 1, when...

Eurotunnel: Structure and Charges — Question (7 May 2014)

Lord Dobbs: Is my noble friend aware that some 300,000 French citizens live in this country? Some estimates put it even higher, and the number is growing. Indeed, the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, reckons that he is in charge of the sixth largest French city on the planet. Does my noble friend put the great and growing attractions of this country in French eyes down to cheap fares, or might it have...

Speaker’s Statement: High Speed Rail (London – West Midlands) Bill (28 Apr 2014)

Michael Fabricant: ...arrive at Euston standing, because there are just not enough seats on the trains to let them sit. However, I agree with the right hon. Member for Holborn and St Pancras and, indeed, the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, when he argues that there is not enough capacity at present for those disembarking at Euston to travel across London. How on earth can that be sustained when, in addition,...

Scottish Parliament: Living Wage (23 Apr 2014)

James Kelly: Never mind the case law—I will give practical examples. What about the care contracts at Renfrewshire Council, which is paying the living wage? What about the contracts in Islington? Even Boris Johnson can ensure that his contracts pay the living wage. Who would have believed that Nicola Sturgeon would be outflanked on the left by Boris Johnson? It is time that we closed the low-pay...

Scottish Parliament: Scotland’s Voice in the European Union (22 Apr 2014)

Patricia Ferguson: ...Government has the opportunity to do something about the living wage if it chooses so to do. We have heard that somehow Europe prevents that from happening, but it frankly beggars belief that Boris Johnson can introduce the living wage for workers in London and the Scottish Government cannot do the same for workers in Scotland. If we really care about workers’ rights, wherever they...

Rural Crime — [Mr Mike Weir in the Chair] (9 Apr 2014)

Richard Benyon: ...in allowing police to tackle some of the criminality in rural areas. I commend that legislation and hope that it is being used properly by police forces up and down the country. My then neighbouring MP, just across the Thames in Oxford, Boris Johnson, and I, just after I had got elected, both identified a problem of dog theft. Sometimes when we raised it, people would smile or slightly...

Bill Presented: Finance (No. 2) Bill (1 Apr 2014)

William Bain: ...at the end of the season, with rising clamours for the manager to be given the sack. Some have even called for the return of the special one to come and lead the blues—no, not José Mourinho, but Boris Johnson—and speculation is rife as to which Government Member will be sent to the subs bench in order to let him get back in the team after the next general election.

[Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] — North Wales Economy (1 Apr 2014)

Albert Owen: ...Guto Bebb) and the right hon. Member for Dwyfor Meirionnydd (Mr Llwyd). On a lighter note, both mentioned the zip-wire project. Would it not be a great opportunity for both to have a go on it, as Boris Johnson did?

Bill Presented: Wales Bill (31 Mar 2014)

Geraint Davies: ...the United Kingdom. It is not healthy and it generates confusion for inward investors. It is not something that we want. I mentioned the smaller taxes such as stamp duty, which are seen as peripheral and unimportant. However, Boris Johnson has jumped on his hind legs and started squawking that he now wants stamp duty on the back of what we are having in Wales. He wants £1.3 billion....

Business of the House (27 Mar 2014)

Angela Eagle: ...ship him off to Europe, I wonder whether the Leader of the House would like to agree with his local Conservative councillor, Mark Howell, who has said that South Cambridgeshire would “love” to have Boris Johnson as its next MP? I for one would miss our exchanges if he did decide to go. There are still 406 days until the general election, but recently Lord Tebbit said that...

Amendment of the Law (20 Mar 2014)

Edward Balls: ...worrying about whether they are keeping their jobs, whether they will be able to afford the electricity bill and how much it costs to fill the car these days,” all the Tories seem to be doing is “talking about Boris.” She went on: “We need to stop talking about ourselves and talk about the things that really matter to people. Otherwise we will be seen as out of...

Scottish Parliament: Engagements (20 Mar 2014)

Johann Lamont: ...’s strong point, but we have advice here that clearly states that it can be done. We also have a statement from the European Commission that says that it can be done. Even an old Etonian such as Boris Johnson can ensure that workers in London can get the living wage. In Scotland, however, we have a First Minister who looks for reasons not to do things. Let us look at his record on...

Olympic and Paralympic Legacy Committee — Motion to Take Note (19 Mar 2014)

the Earl of Arran: ...department of government, we suspected that a certain amount of chaos could arise. It was unfortunate that the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport was unable to tell us how often this committee met. It was left up to the galloping mayor, Boris Johnson, who came bounding along and, without hesitation, told us that it met only once a quarter. Does it show continuous resolve and...

Child Care (London) — [Jim Dobbin in the Chair] (19 Mar 2014)

Emily Thornberry: ...up by only 1% when nursery school costs increased by 11% in 2012. Life is being made harder and harder. It is not right that the London child care strategy, which developed affordable and flexible child care, was closed when Boris Johnson was elected. It is right that we have extended schools and that we increase the number of free hours of child care for three and four-year-olds, but I...
