Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Bill: Report (5th Day) (20 Mar 2012)

Baroness Northover: ...these problems, introducing a new and innovative way of tackling the causes of alcohol-fuelled crime through enforced sobriety schemes. I pay tribute at this stage to the work of the London mayor, Boris Johnson, and the deputy mayor, Kit Malthouse, and to their commitment in this area. Their work on the alcohol abstinence and monitoring requirements is a testament to their determination to...

Dangerous Dogs (14 Mar 2012)

Eleanor Laing: ...are being deliberately bred and trained as so-called status or weapon dogs. This has been recognised, and in London alone, about 1,000 such dogs were seized last year. I am pleased to note that Boris Johnson and Kit Malthouse, at the Greater London authority, have taken this matter very seriously and have set up a unit to deal with status dogs. I should also say that both Boris Johnson and...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (7 Mar 2012)

Bernard Jenkin: Will my right hon. Friend do all that he can to support Mayor Boris Johnson in London, who is pleading with the Pru, our biggest insurer, not to leave the City of London because of the attack by the European Union on the competitiveness of the City? I invite my right hon. Friend to block the fiscal union treaty by making an application to the European Court of Justice that it is illegal,...

Opposition Day — [Un-Allotted Day]: Jobs and Growth in a Low-carbon Economy (5 Mar 2012)

Angie Bray: Does the right hon. Lady agree that the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, is setting an excellent example? He set up the London green fund, from which he has committed £50 million towards the London energy efficiency fund, some 86 buildings have already been refitted and greened and there are another 297 public buildings in the pipeline. All that is going to create about 700 new jobs.

Scottish Parliament: Living Wage (1 Mar 2012)

Joe FitzPatrick: ...benefits. It is becoming increasingly clear that there is also a business case for the living wage and that private companies in London are already seeing the benefits of implementing it. The majority of Boris Johnson quotes are used for comic effect but on this occasion the Mayor of London hit the nail on the head when he said: “Paying the London Living Wage is not only morally...

Public Bill Committee: Civil Aviation Bill: Clause 6 - Market power test (28 Feb 2012)

Graham Stringer: ...and made transparent so that the market can determine what is the best aeroplane to land at Heathrow in terms of who is willing to pay. If that were done, the unjustified criticism levelled by Ken Livingstone and Boris Johnson that there is no need for a third runway at Heathrow would disappear. They say that there are still charter flights going out of Heathrow to Tenerife, or wherever,...

[Mr Mike Weir in the Chair] — BackBench Business — Cycling (23 Feb 2012)

Oliver Colvile: ...not been on a bicycle for a very long time. I want to be very supportive indeed of what The Times is up to, because there are a lot of lessons to be learned not only from abroad, but from London and the good work that Boris Johnson, the Conservative Mayor, is doing. One thing we need to do is ensure that our pavements and roads do not become a battleground between motorists, cyclists,...

Adjournment (Easter, May, Whitsun, Summer, Conference, November and Christmas): Clause 9 — Street trading: vehicles and the internet (21 Feb 2012)

Jacob Rees-Mogg: ...who bestrides the nation as a colossus of political affairs. There is a “but” coming, as my hon. Friends probably realised, though it does not relate to the former hon. Member for Henley, Mr Boris Johnson. It relates to who may come after him. I go back to what I was saying about Lady Thatcher. If it were possible to deify people, Mr Boris Johnson would be next on the list,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Local Government Finance (8 Feb 2012)

Bob Blackman: ..., and the onus will be on enterprise and not on deprivation.. I conclude by reflecting on what has happened in London this year. I applaud the fact that, after three years of council tax freezes under Boris Johnson, the Mayor of London is reducing—reducing!—his share of the council tax, not only ensuring that we have 1,000 extra police officers on the beat, but reducing crime...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Police (8 Feb 2012)

Steve McCabe: year. I do not deny that the Met will have extra responsibilities, but neither has it escaped my attention, or the attention of a number of my constituents, that the Conservative party and Boris Johnson have an election battle to face this year. That might well be influencing some of these decisions. I would like the Minister to tell me why we in the west midlands do not need extra...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (8 Feb 2012)

David Cameron: The proportion of officers on the front line is up, and I am sure the hon. Gentleman will want to join me in congratulating Mayor Boris Johnson on his excellent record on crime in our capital. Total crime is down, violent crime is down on buses and tubes, 11,000 knives and guns have been taken off our streets, and there are 1,000 more officers on the streets of London at the end of his term...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Police Funding Settlement (6 Feb 2012)

Diana R. Johnson: The Government have now admitted that they got police funding for London wrong with their U-turn on Metropolitan police funding and a £90 million bung for Boris’s re-election campaign, yet the Met is not the only force facing pressures from the Olympics and other issues. Will the Minister now reverse the cuts to other forces, such as West Midlands, Greater Manchester, Humberside...

Oral Answers to Questions — Business, Innovation and Skills: Job Creation (Scotland) (2 Feb 2012)

Greg Clark: ...mayors. We would not be doing that if we did not think that elected mayors gave the kind of leadership that London has benefited from considerably through the leadership of the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, in recent years.

Business of the House (26 Jan 2012)

Bob Blackman: One of the first decisions that Mayor Boris Johnson took was to ban the consumption of alcohol on public transport. That has meant that thousands of passengers have been able to enjoy their journeys to and from home. Now, the old pretender threatens to remove the ban if he is re-elected. May we have a debate on the consumption of alcohol on public transport?

[Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] — UK-India Trade (25 Jan 2012)

Mark Field: invest in our infrastructure—what I am about to say now will give the hon. Member for Hayes and Harlington (John McDonnell) some satisfaction—which means a 21st-century airport. Even before Boris Johnson talked about an estuary airport on Boris’s island, I was a great believer in an entirely new airport. Patching and mending either Heathrow or Gatwick is not the right...

Thames River Crossings (19 Jan 2012)

Jim Fitzpatrick: ...has just said about the London Gateway port mentioned by the Minister in the previous debate, as well as the idea for a Thames estuary airport, which is all over the papers this morning because of Boris Johnson’s comments in The Daily Telegraph, and given that the centre of gravity in London has been moving east for the past 20 years and will continue to do so, does she think that,...

Welfare Reform Bill: Report (4th Day) (17 Jan 2012)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...can give that unnecessary face-to-face assessments will not be necessary. If he is not persuaded by me, perhaps he will be persuaded by someone of his own political background-the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson. I have never quoted from one of his speeches before. He writes: "Evidence from the individuals GP and/or a consultant will provide an accurate assessment of need. It would be...

Parking (Westminster) (17 Jan 2012)

Karen Buck: ..., visitors to the west end, and those who earn their living there, and united all the major political parties. Indeed, Westminster council has achieved the near impossible—it has found the one thing that Boris Johnson, Brian Paddick and Ken Livingstone all agree on. The council said that the new charges and the single yellow line parking ban are designed to increase the turnover of...

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...

Opposition Day — [Un-allotted Day]: Rail Fares (11 Jan 2012)

Karen Buck: On the commitment to reduce fares, is my hon. Friend aware that the Labour candidate to be Mayor of London intends to bring forward a package to reduce fares, given that Boris Johnson’s increase in the cost of a zones 1 to 4 travelcard equals a 21% rise, despite the fact that Transport for London has a £729 million operating surplus? The Labour party has a commitment to cut fares.
