Questions to the Mayor of London — The New London Plan: The New London Plan (26 Feb 2021)

Sadiq Khan: ...of land in active employment use. I sought to minimise such impacts and as a result it is limited to situations where a borough would otherwise be seeking to allocate land in the Green Belt or Metropolitan Open Land and can only be done through a Local Plan. The change is to supporting text and the direction has not affected the requirements of Policies E4 – E7, which require boroughs to...

Ministerial and other Maternity Allowances Bill - Second Reading: Amendment to the Motion (22 Feb 2021)

Lord Hunt of Kings Heath: ...this House to allow for gay adoption. I have to say to the noble Baroness, Lady Noakes, whose speech I enjoyed, that, working in London and living in Birmingham, I am a fully paid up member of the metropolitan bubble and proud of it. However, I have become increasingly concerned that the hard-won rights of women over many decades are at risk of being watered down and marginalised as the...

Sadiq Khan: Enforcement against the use of privately-owned e-scooters will continue to be a matter for the Metropolitan Police Roads and Transport Policing Command (RTPC). The rental e-scooter trial will be the only legal way of riding e-scooters in public places within London. Use of privately-owned e-scooters in any public place will remain illegal. Should the Department for Transport (DfT) bring...

Questions to the Mayor of London — Body worn video footage Independent Office Police Conduct referrals: Body worn video footage Independent Office Police Conduct referrals (22 Jan 2021)

Sadiq Khan: Data on Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) referrals to the Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) is not recorded in a way that allows the extraction of cases where Body Worn Video (BWV) is the reason for referral. The reason for disciplinary action or an IOPC referral is not the BWV footage itself, but the behaviour that was captured, and this is what is recorded and therefore...

Covid-19: Vaccinations - Statement (13 Jan 2021)

Lord Faulkner of Worcester: do so? Can he give some comfort to those of us who want to intervene but are frankly deterred by the reaction we are likely to get? It is good news that the supermarkets are operating a new policy, and I welcome the announcement by the Metropolitan Police Commissioner. I would like a bit of a lead from the Government as well.

Written Answers — Home Office: Stop and Search: Greater London (17 Dec 2020)

Questions to the Mayor of London — Parks and Recreation Space (2): Parks and Recreation Space (2) (17 Dec 2020)

Sadiq Khan: ...Sport is revenue based and funds grassroots organisations under my £8.8m programme, Sport Unites. I am currently working with officers to scope future investment in community sport. My London Plan Policy S5 sets out protections to prevent any net loss of sporting facilities, except where there is a surplus as identified by a needs assessment. Many existing pitches are located on open...

Covert Human Intelligence Sources (Criminal Conduct) Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 29 (to Amendment 28) (3 Dec 2020)

Baroness Clark of Kilwinning: ...has said that such conduct by agents was wrong, and I am grateful to her for that. In a previous debate earlier this week, her ministerial colleague described such behaviour as “a mistake”. The Metropolitan Police has already paid compensation to four women as a result of these inappropriate relationships. Given that these and other practices, including the infiltration of groups, have...

Supported Accommodation: HMOs (11 Nov 2020)

Steve McCabe: applauded, but supported housing can be provided by a wide variety of bodies, and not all are as reputable as we might hope. Exempt accommodation, as the name implies, can be provided by non-metropolitan councils, housing associations, registered charities and other bodies, and it is exempt from normal licensing requirements and checks. Research undertaken by the Spring Housing...

Questions to the Mayor of London — Use of Facial Recognition Technology by the Metropolitan Police: Use of Facial Recognition Technology by the Metropolitan Police (26 Oct 2020)

Sadiq Khan: The Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) is in a substantively different place to South West Police (SWP) due to the procedural steps it has taken. The MPS’s Data Protection Impact Assessment (DIPA) and Equalities Impact Assessment (EIA) are comprehensive, and the MPS is confident that these documents address the issues identified in the Bridges case. The MPS is in the process of reviewing its...

Black History Month (20 Oct 2020)

John Hayes: ...working classes—the class that I come from, in stark contrast to the right hon. Member for Islington North (Jeremy Corbyn), who spoke earlier—take a view different from that of the bourgeois metropolitan elite. Most people in this country are deeply proud of their country and its history. Earlier this summer, polling for Policy Exchange’s history project found that 69% of people...

Questions to the Mayor of London — Fixed penalty notices and fines issued to protestors under new coronavirus rules: Fixed penalty notices and fines issued to protestors under new coronavirus rules (16 Oct 2020)

Siân Berry: Could you tell me if MOPAC provided advice or guidance to the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) following each change in legislation or policy from government regarding coronavirus restrictions on public movement?

Local Contact Tracing (14 Oct 2020)

Kenny MacAskill: to keep their citizens safe and secure. That applies not just to law and order. If my recollection of policing history is correct, the City of Glasgow police, formed before Sir Robert Peel’s Metropolitan police, had public health duties, not just the duty to address violence and crime. Then, of course, the scourge was cholera, but it remains true today not just in the ethos of Police...

Policing in South-West London (7 Oct 2020)

Kit Malthouse: ...days, holidays, training days and other days that are naturally part of a police officer’s cycle of existence. There is an element of tail—of absorption —that causes a problem. However, the Metropolitan police—we have been in constant touch with the force, on an almost daily basis—has done a fantastic job from top to bottom over the last few months. It has been really fantastic...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: The Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) (No. 2) (Amendment No. 3) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2020 (6 Oct 2020)

Matthew O'Toole: ...has done so with complete sincerity and seriousness about their constituents, about this place and about the public health response, but it is also clear that there is a deficit in clarity around policymaking for this jurisdiction. I do not say that to score points against either of the Ministers here, the parties they represent or, indeed, the Executive as a whole. My party is a...

Gang-associated Girls — [Sir Christopher Chope in the Chair] (6 Oct 2020)

Florence Eshalomi: ...young women at risk”. One key issue that I identified was a lack of data. There was no reliable information about the number of girls associated with gangs. For example, here in London, the Metropolitan Police Service’s records as of last year highlighted on its gangs matrix only six females, in contrast to 2,492 males. However, also in February, the Children’s Commissioner estimated...

Public Statues (25 Sep 2020)

Sir David Amess: ...and the media could pick on. The recent protests sought to examine history, I believe, from the wrong point of view: by imposing today’s values on the past. On Monday, I shall be meeting the Metropolitan police commissioner to, among other things, raise concerns I have on this particular matter. If there are demands for statues to be removed for whatever reason, it should certainly be...

Siân Berry: The latest data from the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) shows the highest level of stop and search in more than eight years according to an article in The Times ( -and-search-at-8-year-high-g6hwmqz59). How was such a high level of stop and search reached while we are all in lockdown, and what was MPS policy regarding conducting...

Sadiq Khan: The composition of vehicle crews is an operational decision for the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS).

The decision will be influenced by factors such as time of day and week; type of operational duty being performed; information and intelligence; and the type...

Questions to the Mayor of London — Police Federation Feedback: Police Federation Feedback (18 Sep 2020)

Sadiq Khan: The Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) already has a process in place through which it consults and engages via a partnership framework agreement with trade unions, the Met Police Federation and police staff associations on policy changes. Aspects of this consultation are required by law (with specific stakeholders and not others) whilst other aspects are undertaken as best practice to ensure...
