David Burrowes: ...agree that leading by example is important in the private and public sector, including in Government Departments? Does he recognise that Conservatives have been on the case for a number of years? Boris Johnson, the Mayor of London, has introduced the London living wage in city hall.

TfL (Funding and Station Staffing) — [Andrew Rosindell in the Chair] (15 Jan 2014)

Lilian Greenwood: ...and courteously by staff in the ticket office, and of course it was. Such experiences are common to us all, but as my hon. Friend the Member for Hayes and Harlington set out very clearly, we know that Boris Johnson’s plans to close all ticket offices and cut 17% of station staff will hit disabled passengers particularly hard. These are passengers who Transport for All has warned...

EU: Balance of Competences Review — Question (9 Jan 2014)

Lord Pearson of Rannoch: ...the EU administers with competence? Would it not be more honest to describe this exercise as the Government’s EU incompetence review? Now that even the mildly Eurosceptic Mayor of London, Mr Boris Johnson, has come to see that the project of European integration has failed and is outdated, is not the answer to wrap the whole thing up and throw it away?

Opposition Day — [16th Allotted Day] — Housing: Fixed Odds Betting Terminals (8 Jan 2014)

Clive Efford: ...and feel.” The Government talk about localism, but they do not grant the powers even when they are asked to do so by their own colleagues. I assume that the Government have heard of a character called Boris Johnson. He is the Mayor of London and his office issued a statement on the issue of betting shops, saying: “They have grown in number with an increased supply of premises...

Opposition Day — [16th Allotted Day] — Housing (8 Jan 2014)

Hilary Benn: ...grab, but I would gently point out that among those who support the idea of charging when permission has been granted but no houses have been built are the International Monetary Fund and someone who goes by the name of Boris Johnson, who, when I last checked, was the Mayor of London. Moreover, the planning Minister once called for a tax on land to “deter speculative land...

Oral Answers to Questions — Deputy Prime Minister: Heseltine Review (7 Jan 2014)

Barry Sheerman: May I press the Minister further on this matter? There is a devolved Assembly or Parliament in Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales, and there is a powerful Greater London axis under Boris Johnson that is enormously influential, but we in the regions have nothing—Yorkshire has nothing. We have no focus, no strategy, no leadership. The Heseltine review said that we should take this...

Scottish Parliament: Finance (11 Dec 2013)

Linda Fabiani: ...of identifiable expenditure than it had received in 2007-08. In real terms over that period, Scotland lost more than £8 billion and the north lost over £0.5 billion while London and the south received an extra £11.5 billion. Is it any wonder that Boris Johnson is backing the better together campaign? Talking of the better together campaign, I was appalled to see that the...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions: Cycling: NI Budget (10 Dec 2013)

Danny Kennedy: ...transport and sustainable transport in the future, can be argued successfully, it will mean that additional resources on a par with other places can be expended.  The best example that we can look to is London.  Mayor Boris Johnson's cycling revolution has transformed public transport and sustainable modes of transport in our nation's capital.  I look forward to doing that...

Education: Contribution to Economic Growth — Motion to Take Note (5 Dec 2013)

Lord Graham of Edmonton: ...with the staff and pupils. A few years ago, I was invited to present the prizes, and I was pleased to do so. I was well received and someone said, “That was a very good speech”. I said, “Who else have you had?” and they said, “Last year we had Boris Johnson”. I said, “How was he received?”. “Oh, we all laughed all the way through his...

Scottish Parliament: Local Development Trusts and Community Initiatives (3 Dec 2013)

Stewart Stevenson: ...others with locally sourced food of good quality. The trust is working in the town centre and with a community health development officer. Fundamentally, as Christine Grahame said, the trust works through and with volunteers. Unlike Boris Johnson, who says that the top per cent of earners in London should get knighthoods, I think that the volunteers in our community trusts should get...

Wales: Cost of Living — Question for Short Debate (2 Dec 2013)

Lord Anderson of Swansea: ...find had no prospects and a wage of £12,000 a year. I invite the Minister to look in the windows where jobs are advertised and see the type of jobs on offer. I wonder how that young man reacted if he heard Boris Johnson exulting in greed and inequality, or if he saw last Friday’s Evening Standard headline: “London has 2,700 bankers earning more than £1 million”....

Bill Presented: Clause 3 — Conduct of the referendum and further provisions (29 Nov 2013)

Gareth Thomas: ...least—unusual, there have been several in recent years, and a noticeably higher number under Labour Governments. Not for us the dismissive attitude to some of the British people of Conservatives like Boris Johnson—we instinctively trust the British people. Under Labour we had the 1975 European Communities membership referendum. We have had the various Scottish, Welsh and...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (27 Nov 2013)

Diane Abbott: The Prime Minister will be aware that the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, proposes to close nearly every single ticket office on the London Underground network, with more than 700 jobs being lost.

Scottish Parliament: Modernising Scotland’s Transport Infrastructure (13 Nov 2013)

Cameron Buchanan: ..., which is almost certainly a result of recent high-profile fatalities. That is why we need to think a good deal more about how we can offer a safe environment for cyclists. I was interested to note that, last week, London’s mayor Boris Johnson launched a new stretch of London’s cycle superhighway, which is fully segregated from other traffic. The cycling campaign group Spokes...

Iran and Syria: Offender Rehabilitation Bill [Lords] (11 Nov 2013)

David Burrowes: ..., which would help refer people to the right places through a single assessment. Co-design is also important and we must recognise its value. One such example can be found in London, where the Mayor, Boris Johnson, has helped pilot Project Daedalus, which focuses on the rehabilitation of young offenders through the resettlement wing at Feltham. That cohort had appalling reoffending rates...

United Kingdom and China — Motion to Take Note (7 Nov 2013)

Lord Watson of Richmond: ...same? China is in the forward planning and investment programmes of virtually every major business in the western world. Countries compete frantically to sell to China and to attract investment from China. Boris Johnson and George Osborne outdo each other—and outdid each other—as super-salesmen. Some, of course, urge us to shed all restraint and become a new generation of...

Living Wage — Question (6 Nov 2013)

Baroness Tyler of Enfield: My Lords, does the Minister agree with the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, who said only on Monday that more employers in the capital were recognising the benefits of the living wage for their workforces by specifically helping low-paid families to make ends meet, as well as promoting economic dividends for employers and boosting growth and productivity? Does the Minister share the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Air Passenger Duty (5 Nov 2013)

Nigel Evans: Manchester airport is second only to Heathrow in terms of airport capacity, but it is operating at under half capacity yet Heathrow is full. Boris Johnson talked yesterday to the CBI about getting these new routes out to China and Asia, but instead of forcing people from the north-west to fly down to London in order to fly to China, why cannot we get people to come from London up to...

Crystal Palace Park (29 Oct 2013)

Jim Dowd: ...the water towers at the original Crystal Palace at Sydenham hill. Mr Ni’s ambition may well reflect the ambitious, extravagant and visionary image of people at the height of British Victorian industrial power. I went to the launch of the scheme earlier this month, and the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, was there, playing his normal shy and retiring role, and saying he would be happy...

Scottish Parliament: Strict Liability (29 Oct 2013)

John Lamont: ...already heard, Conservatives are actually very pro cycling. The UK Government is investing more in cycling than any previous British Government did, and London, led by Conservative mayor and cycle fanatic Boris Johnson, is very much leading the way in cycling investment in the United Kingdom. By 2015, London will spend more than four times per head on cycling what is spent in Scotland. We...
