Food Waste — [Mr Christopher Chope in the Chair] (11 Jun 2015)

Paul Maynard: ..., and I want to highlight one that has potential. Once upon a time, I was at the cutting edge in talking about the community shop idea. Sadly, my hon. Friend the Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson) has stolen my thunder by visiting the most recent opening in South Norwood earlier this month. With his Mayor of London hat on, he has given £300,000 to try to spread the...

Business of the House: European Union (Finance) Bill (11 Jun 2015)

Kelvin Hopkins: ...way to the employers. They start off with a tough stance and try to get something real out of those negotiations. We should be doing the same. The new hon. Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson), currently the Mayor of London, has made the point that we should be prepared to say to the other side in these negotiations that if we do not get a satisfactory conclusion, we...

G7 — Statement (10 Jun 2015)

Baroness Stowell of Beeston: ...his negotiations he will put a question to the United Kingdom for the people to decide in the in/out referendum. We very much support that process, which has now started. I should correct the noble Baroness. Boris Johnson attends the political Cabinet; he does not attend the Cabinet in the normal sense of the word. Moving on to the point that the noble and learned Lord, Lord Wallace, made...

[Mr David Crausby in the Chair] — Air Pollution (London) (9 Jun 2015)

Barry Gardiner: .... She has laid down a serious challenge to both the Mayor of London and the Government. Of course, the Mayor now has a dual role, as he is also the hon. Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson). I hope that his new responsibilities lead him to question seriously the adequacy of some of the measures that he has proposed as Mayor to tackle air pollution in this great city. In...

Cities and Local Government Devolution Bill [HL] — Second Reading (Continued) (8 Jun 2015)

Baroness Williams of Trafford: ...London. London boroughs are absolutely not precluded from coming forward with their ideas for devolution, albeit they have a mayor in place.

I will not answer every single question but I will go through the pertinent points made this afternoon. The noble...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Health and Social Care (2 Jun 2015)

Alex Chalk: .... “You might be better than your brother, but we don’t want David Miliband either.” Another dicey moment came during the mayoral visit of my hon. Friend the Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson). Initially it seemed to go well, but then came that forensic and dastardly question from the local BBC reporter—“Mayor, who exactly have you come to...

Baroness Hollis of Heigham: ...homes”. The IFS is withering, saying that the scheme is, “a significant giveaway to … tenants”, which, “would worsen the UK’s underlying public finance position”. As for the credit rating agencies, Moody’s says that the measure could, “potentially impair housing associations’ balance sheets and future borrowing capacity”....

Queen’s Speech — Debate (3rd Day) (Continued) (1 Jun 2015)

Lord Flight: ...as trial by jury would be consistent with the Good Friday agreement and would allow Parliament, not Strasbourg, to decide where the balance between rights lies. With regard to devolved affairs, I support what I would call the Boris Johnson agenda, and would add only that municipalities should be allowed to raise funds for infrastructure investment projects via their own bond issues, as is...

Fifa: Britain in the World (1 Jun 2015)

Justine Greening: ...own communities. I am immensely proud to welcome all of them to the House today. Let me pick up on a few contributions. First, I am delighted that my hon. Friend the Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson) is back in the House. We have missed his colour over the years, and we look forward to more new words, such as schmoozathon, over the coming months. It is also great to...

Queen’s Speech — Debate (2nd Day) (Continued) (28 May 2015)

Lord Clinton-Davis: ...agree. Britain would, of course, continue to trade whether in or out, with countries within the EU but our membership provides an invaluable link with other countries. It is indisputable that our EU membership is vital. Even Boris Johnson could not persuade otherwise. Trade, however significant, is not the sole criterion. From a political stance, Britain—a middle-ranking...

Outlawries Bill: Debate on the Address — [1st day] (27 May 2015)

Meg Hillier: ...in London but also nationally. The Government have done nothing to ease the pressure on the housing market. They have built a pitiful number of houses for affordable rent. The hon. Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson), who is not in his place at the moment, although I mentioned that I was going to say this, has sold the fire station in my area for £28 million, which...

Scottish Parliament: Scotland’s Future Employability Services (28 Apr 2015)

Margaret McDougall: ...wage to public sector procurement contracts. The Scottish Government recently missed the opportunity to do that when it chose to vote against Labour amendments, which the unions supported, to introduce the living wage. Boris Johnson sought to do it in London, while the SNP hid behind European Union legislation. At the time, Professor Christopher McCrudden, who is a leading expert on...

UNESCO: Westminster World Heritage Site — Question (26 Mar 2015)

Baroness Boothroyd: ...I also happen to have. Do the Government no longer care about their responsibilities to the national heritage in London? Who calls the tune? Is it Mr Eric Pickles, the Communities Secretary, or is it Mr Boris Johnson, the mayor? Will the noble Baroness accept that the prospect of Parliament and all it stands for being downgraded in favour of mega projects that cost millions but do little...

Homelessness (Crisis Report) (25 Mar 2015)

Brooks Newmark: ...London authority and the Government have invested £5 million in the world’s first homelessness social impact bond, which helped to deliver better outcomes for 831 of London’s most entrenched rough sleepers. I praise the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, and his team at City hall for their work on tackling rough sleeping in the capital. The Mayor’s rough sleeping group,...

High Speed 2 (25 Mar 2015)

John Randall: My right hon. Friend alluded to my putative successor—if the electorate are so inclined. I have had conversations with him, and although Mr Boris Johnson is a shy and retiring fellow he is keen to take up the cudgels on behalf of my constituents and Hillingdon residents, on fair compensation, tunnelling and many other things. I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Ruislip, Northwood and...
