Olympic Games and Paralympic Games 2012 — Motion to Take Note (Continued) (14 Jun 2010)

Lord Moynihan: ...the European Olympic Committee's Sport for All and Youth Commission. Finally, in the context of the theatrical analogy, the major's office, under the leadership of Ken Livingstone and, more recently, Boris Johnson, has been consistently supportive in prioritising the Games as a showcase for London and for sport in 2012, and for preparing the way for the noble Baroness, Lady Ford. I am...

Tackling Poverty in the UK (10 Jun 2010)

John Cryer: ...will fight tooth and nail for its future. The second issue concerns the safer neighbourhood teams, which come under the aegis of the Metropolitan police. They face cuts. We have a Conservative Mayor, Boris Johnson, and a Conservative Government, both of whom, particularly the Mayor, have promised cuts. Those teams have made a significant impact across wards in London, particularly in...

Identity Documents Bill (9 Jun 2010)

Theresa May: ...-being or safety. In 2004 the Mayor of London promised to eat his ID card in front of "whatever emanation of the state has demanded that I produce it." I will not endorse civil disobedience, but Boris Johnson was expressing in his own inimitable way a discomfort even stronger than the discomfort to be had from eating an ID card. It is a discomfort born of a very healthy and British...

Speaker's Statement: Economic Affairs and Work and Pensions (8 Jun 2010)

Jo Johnson: ...low. It quotes an unnamed Oxford contemporary, in the first of a series that it is doing on new Members, and that friendly Oxford contemporary of mine says: "He could not be more different to Boris. It's as though the humour gene by-passed Jo altogether and he inherited only the ambition gene." It is an absolutely fair comment, but I do not really apologise for the humour-ectomy, nor,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Constitution and Home Affairs (7 Jun 2010)

Tom Harris: ...such an eloquent, entertaining and, frankly, self-assured maiden speech as the one we have just heard from the hon. Member for North East Somerset (Jacob Rees-Mogg). Not since the days of Boris Johnson have we in this Chamber been treated to such a colourful, imaginative and evocative detailing of our history. I have to say to the hon. Gentleman that I have no doubt that he will do...

Crossrail (3 Jun 2010)

Nick Raynsford: ...aware that one should not necessarily believe everything one reads in the press, but when one of the sources expressing concern about the Government's intentions is the Conservative Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, it is hardly surprising that speculation is rife. For that reason, I wrote to the Secretary of State for Transport on 20 May, and I was pleased to receive a reply this...

Scottish Parliament: Her Majesty's Government (Relations) (27 May 2010)

Lord George Foulkes: ...including at First Minister's question time, we hear him say, "the London Government". Indeed, we heard it from an SNP back bencher today. I say to the SNP that the London Government is run by a man called Boris Johnson and it governs London. The UK Government is based in Westminster and is a coalition, as we know. It is only now that the SNP tartan Tories are coming out in their real light.

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

David Hanson: ...to 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...

[Mr. Mike Weir in the Chair] — Gang Crime (London) (6 Apr 2010)

Diane Abbott: ...in Hackney, Southwark and other inner-London boroughs. It is increasingly carried out by criminal gangs and is linked to various other forms of crime. In his 2008 manifesto, the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, promised to build more rape crisis centres. I want to use this speech to urge him to consider building one in Hackney, because of its high incidence of rape and gang rape. There is...

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

David Hanson: ...is 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...

National Minimum Wage — Debate (11 Mar 2010)

Lord Watson of Invergowrie: ...annually to £11,310 gross income. After PAYE is deducted, that figure becomes £811 a month or £9,732 a year at current rates. That does not allow much leeway for belt-tightening. Indeed, London Mayor Boris Johnson believes that the minimum level should be significantly increased for those working in the metropolis. He has supported the London Living Wage, ensuring that all...

Opposition Day — [5th Allotted Day]: Health Care in London (9 Mar 2010)

Tony McNulty: ...London teaching hospitals, which admittedly are wonderful, and to the detriment of the suburbs. That dilemma has still not been resolved, and sadly it has not been and will not be resolved by Boris Johnson, as the hon. Member for South Cambridgeshire intimated. On health as on a bunch of other things over the past two years, Johnson has done nothing of any consequence for public health or...

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...

Welsh Affairs (25 Feb 2010)

Nick Ainger: I am not sure whether the hon. Gentleman is suggesting that we should take the axe to the financial services sector. I am sure that his friend Boris Johnson, the Mayor of London, would take serious exception to that. To be fair, we have seen a significant expansion of financial services in Wales, and Admiral is a very good example of that. I am arguing not that the financial services sector...

Bill Presented — Climate Change (Sectoral Targets) Bill: New Clause 88 — Referendum on voting systems (9 Feb 2010)

Martin Linton: ...system, omitting to mention that it was the system that his party used to elect him, the system that every party uses to elect their leaders, candidates and committees, the system that elected Boris Johnson Mayor of London-with the minor difference that voters had only a first and second choice-and the system used to elect every other mayor. We have never heard any complaints about it...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Police Grant Report (3 Feb 2010)

Tony McNulty: ..., even if we throw in the Mayor's fund and all sorts of things. The crucial thing given London's unique structures-the unique structures that the police authority introduced in London and that Mr. Johnson took over two years ago-is that we were told that London was the crucible. Someone who wanted to see how a future Conservative Government would work in this country was told to look to...

[Mr. Edward O'Hara in the Chair] — Population and Immigration (2 Feb 2010)

Paul Rowen: We do not support the policy of a complete amnesty for all migrants introduced by the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson. We have said that we will set up a path to earned citizenship, under which certain clear conditions must be met. That policy is based on clear economics. If we accept the London School of Economics figure that there are 600,000 illegal immigrants in this country and consider...

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Affordable Housing (London) (26 Jan 2010)

Karen Buck: As my right hon. Friend implies, demand for affordable homes to rent and buy hugely outstrips the level of provision in the Mayor's housing plan. Does my right hon. Friend share my astonishment that Boris Johnson has lifted the salary below which priority is given to people pitching for shared ownership schemes to roughly the equivalent of that of a Member of Parliament?

[Mr. Joe Benton in the Chair] — Violence Against Women (21 Jan 2010)

Andrew Pelling: ...trying to make a partisan point. However, I would like to quote it in concluding my speech, because it poses a question which the Solicitor-General may have time to answer in winding up the debate. Boris Johnson stated: "It is very disappointing that the Home Office will not be providing the MPS with any further additional funding to tackle human trafficking, particularly given the...

[Mr Mike Hancock in the Chair] — Leeds (UK Economy) (20 Jan 2010)

John Battle: ...neighbourhood and of people in Leeds. Every job lost means that we must work hard to obtain another to take people into the future. My impetus for today's debate was a former colleague's comment. Boris Johnson is now the Mayor of London, and last October he was reported to have said in a keynote speech in London: "No disrespect to Manchester"- obviously he thinks that Manchester is...
