Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Directly Elected Mayors (21 Oct 2010)

Eric Pickles: is our intention to introduce 12 mayors. We will also be introducing additional powers. I think the problem with mayors in the past is that they have been just another politician-[Hon. Members: "Boris!"] But as Boris Johnson has demonstrated in London, with passion and with power one can transform the post.

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Israel: Visits Abroad (27 Nov 2017)

Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon: ...Office Baroness Williams of Trafford, 2-3 June 2016; Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for International Trade Mark Garnier, 20–22 September 2016; Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs Boris Johnson, 29-30 September 2016; Minister of State for Digital Matt Hancock, 18 December, and 20–21 December 2016; Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs Boris Johnson, 7–8 March 2017;...

Scottish Parliament: Brexit and Scotland’s Future (24 Apr 2019)

The First Minister: When I set out the implications and consequences of Brexit for Scotland, I did not factor in the prospect of somebody like Boris Johnson becoming Prime Minister. If that happens—there is apparently now a distinct possibility of its happening—the consequences that I outlined today would get even worse for Scotland. Yes—I do think that that makes the case for Scotland...

Scottish Parliament: Alcohol Sales (Age Limits) (2 Oct 2008)

Kenny MacAskill: ...have moved on from David Cameron's hug-a-hoodie plan to Murdo Fraser's free bottle of Buckie or David McLetchie's gie-them-aw-a-cairrie-oot idea. I was interested to read that the London mayor, Boris Johnson—good old Boris—backs a proposal for an age 21 initiative in Croydon. Why are the Tories so dismissive of proposals in Scotland but so protective of their home counties heartland?

Scottish Parliament: Supreme Court Judgment (Response) (24 Sep 2019)

Patrick Harvie: The First Minister is quite right to say that Boris Johnson must be held personally responsible for this action. Boris Johnson is someone who, throughout his career, has shown contempt for the truth, contempt for Parliament, contempt for devolution and—although it is out of character for me to stand up for the Queen—contempt for a monarchy that he professes to believe in. However, is it...

Questions to the Mayor of London — Permitted Development: Permitted Development (29 Jul 2019)

Sadiq Khan: I will do so, but the good news is every single member of the Conservative Assembly Group, except for one, supports the candidature of Boris Johnson and they probably have more influence over him than I would. I will lobby [potential] Prime Minister Johnson, but I am sure the Conservative Group on the Assembly will also lobby Mr Johnson because it is really important that we have good...

Questions to the Mayor of London — “Shocking… horrifying… slow”: the Government’s response to removing flammable cladding post-Grenfell: “Shocking… horrifying… slow”: the Government’s response to removing flammable cladding post-Grenfell (29 Jul 2019)

Andrew Dismore: Thanks for that as well. After the Lakanal House fire ten years ago, which killed six people and injured many more, then-Mayor Boris Johnson said: “Is there anything we should be doing to ensure that we do not have a repeat of such tragic blazes? Safety has to be paramount and we will certainly be looking at this to see if there are any lessons that can be drawn.” Would you think that...

UK-EU Renegotiation (3 Feb 2016)

Alan Johnson: Will the Prime Minister join me in welcoming the launch today of Environmentalists for Europe, which is co-chaired by Stanley Johnson, the father of the hon. Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson)? Will he also welcome the splendid article last week setting out the importance for science and technology of remaining in the European Union, which was penned by his Minister for...

Scottish Parliament: Immigration Policy (Universities and Scientific Research) (10 Sep 2019)

Daniel Johnson: ...different position from that of their UK counterparts. However, I must object to the attempt to take the politics out of this issue, because it is simply not possible. The acceleration, under Boris Johnson, towards a no-deal Brexit is one of the very real reasons why we are having this debate—a point underlined by the fact that the UK Secretary of State for Work and Pensions resigned...

Scottish Parliament: Trade Deal (Drug Prices) (31 Oct 2019)

Nicola Sturgeon: ...about the real and present threat to our national health service, but there is one. I do not think that there is any doubt that, if they are left to their own devices and if they get their way, a Boris Johnson-led Government would open up our national health service to Donald Trump in the interests of trade deals. Yesterday we even heard Boris Johnson, in the House of Commons, almost...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Ticket Office Closures (12 Jan 2012)

Jim Fitzpatrick: Costs impact on fares, as the Minister has just said. In London, Conservative Mayor Boris Johnson—[Hon. Members: “Hooray!”] I expected a more Pavlovian response, Mr Speaker. Mayor Johnson has approved rises on average of nearly 6%, yet Labour mayoral candidate Ken Livingstone—[Hon. Members: “Hooray!”] Much better, Mr Speaker. Both sides of the House appreciate the Labour...

Questions to the Mayor of London — Police Recruitment: Police Recruitment (25 Sep 2019)

Peter Whittle: On 25 July 2019 during Boris Johnson’s first speech as the country’s prime minister, he vowed to recruit an extra 20,000 police officers to ‘make our streets safer’. The recruitment drive will begin this month and Mr Johnson said he wants it completed within three years. Many of these officers will be recruited into the Metropolitan Police. Given the current level of recruitment...

Business of the House (19 Apr 2012)

George Young: My hon. Friend has, of course, an interest in the outcome of the elections. It is certainly the case that Boris Johnson has given consideration to the outer London boroughs that was denied to them by the previous incumbent. I very much hope that on election day those who share my hon. Friend’s concern that the outer London boroughs should not be neglected at City Hall will turn out in force...

Scottish Parliament: Citizens Assembly of Scotland (11 Sep 2019)

Alex Rowley: ...Rennie and Adam Tomkins about independence, the greatest threat to the future of the United Kingdom does not lie in the Scottish citizens assembly but in the Conservative and Brexit party and Boris Johnson. That is a fact. Even Boris’s brother, Jo Johnson, resigned from his Government saying that he had to choose between family loyalty and what was best and right for the country. There...

Scottish Parliament: European Union Exit (30 Oct 2019)

Adam Tomkins: ...not to a ministerial statement worthy of the name, but to a party-political broadcast on behalf of the Scottish National Party. The truth is this: Mike Russell called for a transition period, and Boris Johnson’s new deal provides for one; Mike Russell called for no hard border on the island of Ireland, and Boris Johnson’s new deal ensures that we will not have one; and Nicola Sturgeon...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (5th Day) (21 Oct 2019)

Lord Truscott: ...electorate a say on the form of Brexit now proposed. As a historian, though not as distinguished a one as many noble Lords in the Chamber today, I will make a couple of historical allusions. First, Boris Johnson should beware of what happened to Charles I when he tried to bypass Parliament and rule from 1629 to 1640 with his eleven years’ tyranny, a historical period mentioned by the...
