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...

Bill Presented — Pedicabs Bill: Crime and Security Bill (18 Jan 2010)

Tony McNulty: ...side has got them right yet. There needs to be much more accountability at local level, and we have not got there yet. Police commissioners are a daft idea-that is not the way to do it-and if Boris Johnson is the answer, it must have been a silly question. The only new moneys that the Metropolitan police will get over the next two years will be the 2.7 per cent. increase from this...

Live Music Bill [HL]: Second Reading (15 Jan 2010)

Lord Clement-Jones: .... That was very laudable, but it had no licence: the performances were illegal. The provision of 30 pianos in London streets last June and July under the Play Me, I'm Yours scheme, backed by the mayor, Boris Johnson, was caught by the Licensing Act as provision of an "entertainment facility"; so even if no music is played they can still get you. Without a licence obtained from the local...

Local Newspapers — [Mrs. Janet Dean in the Chair] (13 Jan 2010)

Andrew Slaughter: ...the House will have heard, my opponent, a prospective parliamentary candidate, gets half a page to himself. However, I agree with the hon. Member for Wantage (Mr. Vaizey). I would like to praise Boris Johnson for cancelling The Londoner, but I do not need to because he is on the front of the Hammersmith and Fulham News, with a number of other Tory politicians appearing inside.

Immigration Control — [Mr. John Cummings in the Chair] (6 Jan 2010)

Tom Brake: that those immigrants have taken. Before I conclude, I will touch briefly on the issue of amnesty. There is clearly a split within the Conservative party on that issue. Research conducted by Boris Johnson identified that there were about 750,000 irregular migrants in London. It is our view that under certain strictly controlled circumstances, as outlined by my hon. Friend, there is a...

Consolidated Fund Bill: Regional Select Committee (London) (14 Dec 2009)

David Burrowes: My hon. Friend talks about the election, and obviously Boris Johnson was elected as Mayor for London. Is not the concern that the genie of devolved government has got out of the bottle and that that genie is now blue, in the form of Boris Johnson? The problem is that the Government want to put that genie back in the bottle, but they cannot do that and so we have a costly, expensive,...

Bill Presented — Personal Care At Home Bill: Home Office and Work and Pensions (25 Nov 2009)

Alan Johnson: ...hon. Gentleman simply broke cover by forgetting in the heat of the moment what he was supposed to be doing? Let me remind the House of the response of the Conservative leader-in-waiting, my cousin Boris, to this broken Britain mantra. He said: "Someone the other day"- he was referring here to the hon. Member for Epsom and Ewell- "compared London with Baltimore; absolute nonsense." He also...

Queen's Speech — Debate (4th Day) (24 Nov 2009)

Lord Birt: a rounding error in the budgets of other major spending departments. We desperately need a system of universal road pricing, as the noble Lord, Lord Bradshaw, suggested. Perhaps the Minister and Boris Johnson, those unlikely twins, could be joined at the hip on this issue, too. However, we also need investment in a new fit-for-purpose strategic road network linking our major centres of...

Climate Change (5 Nov 2009)

Andrew Slaughter: ...whereas we had one Opposition Front Bencher saying only a couple of months ago that the plans for a third runway would be revisited if a Conservative Government were elected. At the same time, we had Boris Johnson initially saying that Heathrow would be closed and a new airport built in the Thames estuary, whereas he now says that that new airport will be in addition to a two-runway...

Scottish Parliament: Alcohol (Minimum Pricing) (5 Nov 2009)

Shirley-Anne Somerville: ...officer, Dr Harry Burns, who called tackling the price of alcohol "a no-brainer". Indeed, the policy of minimum pricing is supported by all four CMOs in the UK. Even some Tories have seen the light, from Boris Johnson—it is not often that I quote him in a speech—to Councillor Jim Millar, chairman of the Angus licensing board, who recently said: "I was amazed at how much alcohol...

Lord Berkeley: To ask Her Majesty's Government what new measures to improve air quality in Greater London have been agreed between the Government and the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, in 2009; by how much each new measure agreed is expected to improve air quality; and in which year it is expected to do so.

Written Answers — House of Lords: Air Quality (28 Oct 2009)

Written Ministerial Statements — House of Lords: Transport: Prison Vans (23 Oct 2009)

Lord Bach: ...' understanding was that in January 2009, Transport for London (TfL) had agreed with our prisoner escort contractor, that seven-cell vehicles had approval to use bus lanes. Since then Mayor Boris Johnson (on behalf TfL) has written to explain that this agreement is no longer correct. TfL has reconsidered the matter and now advise that seven-cell prison vans do not have permission to use...

Public Bill Committee: Child Poverty Bill (22 Oct 2009) picked up from where we took matters in the 1990s and updated them for London citizens. I hope that London Citizens and the Greater London assembly—the living wage for London is backed by Boris Johnson—will now pick up from the Joseph Rowntree Foundation.

Scottish Parliament: Living Wage (17 Sep 2009)

John Wilson: ...will solve poverty without a change in the incomes of those who are in or out of employment. The debate about the living wage moved forward in people's minds on 22 May when the mayor of London, Boris Johnson, announced that he was increasing the London living wage by 15p to £7.60 an hour. Since 2005, some 29 organisations across London, including Barclays Bank and the Greater London...

Royal Assent (21 Jul 2009)

Andrew Slaughter: ...were dodged and answers to questions were evaded-there was nothing in writing at the time. Plans were held up because of the continued presence of Ken Livingstone as Mayor of London, but when Boris Johnson was elected last year, the council moved swiftly ahead, first by dropping all plans for new affordable housing, by accelerating small-scale demolitions, by designated sales and by...
