Greater London Low Emission Zone Charging (Amendment) Bill: Adjourned debate on Second Reading [22 March] – Gareth Johnson. Private Members' Bills

Written Answers — Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities: Flats: Fire Prevention (27 Maw 2024)

Gareth Johnson: To ask the Secretary of State for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities, what steps his Department is taking to support leaseholders living in buildings below 11 metres in height with fire remediation costs.

Greater London Low Emission Zone Charging (Amendment) Bill (22 Maw 2024)

Gareth Johnson: The hon. Lady has been speaking for nearly half an hour, and it is obvious that she and the Labour party wish to talk out my Bill to overturn the expansion of the ULEZ scheme. Can I ask what her message is to a lady I spoke to recently in my constituency? She said that she could not visit her sister in Bexley, just a few miles away. As she was a disabled person, she could not use public...

Greater London Low Emission Zone Charging (Amendment) Bill (22 Maw 2024)

Gareth Johnson: I beg to move, That the Bill be now read a Second time. The Bill would overturn the expansion of the ULEZ scheme, simply because it is a cruel, cruel form of taxation. It is particularly cruel to the poorest in society, hitting heavily those people who have old motor vehicles that they cannot afford to upgrade, with or without a scrappage scheme. It is also very unfair on business...

Greater London Low Emission Zone Charging (Amendment) Bill (22 Maw 2024)

Gareth Johnson: That is an absolutely valid point, but I would go further. About 50% of police officers in the Metropolitan police area live outside London and commute in, and the percentage for all emergency workers is probably about the same. These are the people who Londoners rely on the most—they are vital to Londoners—but if their vehicles are not ULEZ-compliant, they are hit with £12.50 every...

Greater London Low Emission Zone Charging (Amendment) Bill (22 Maw 2024)

Gareth Johnson: I am grateful for that intervention, because it gives me an opportunity to smash the myth that the expansion of the ULEZ scheme has anything whatsoever to do with air pollution. If it was about air pollution, the Mayor of London would ban motor vehicles from going into London, but he does not want to ban them; he wants to make money out of them. If those motorists give the Mayor £12.50, they...

Greater London Low Emission Zone Charging (Amendment) Bill (22 Maw 2024)

Gareth Johnson: My hon. Friend is absolutely right, and I pay tribute to the work he has done on this issue for some time. The approach to the border tax, as he called it, highlights the fact that the Mayor of London was hellbent on bringing in a system whereby he could make money out of cars. Originally, he wanted to make money out of every car; when he was stopped from doing that, he decided to make money...

Greater London Low Emission Zone Charging (Amendment) Bill (22 Maw 2024)

Gareth Johnson: I am grateful to my hon. Friend for intervening. As the law stands at the moment, the Government do not have the power to overturn the ULEZ expansion. As a consequence, I have introduced this Bill, which would give the Government the power to overturn the expansion. I am really grateful to the Minister for his work and efforts on this issue, and for the fact that the Government now support...

Greater London Low Emission Zone Charging (Amendment) Bill (22 Maw 2024)

Gareth Johnson: I pay tribute to my right hon. Friend, who has been a real champion of this issue for her constituents in Barnet. She is absolutely right: people outside of London like to travel into London to use the dry cleaners, fish and chip shops, sweet shops and so on, but that no longer happens if their vehicle is not ULEZ compliant.

Greater London Low Emission Zone Charging (Amendment) Bill (22 Maw 2024)

Gareth Johnson: I am rather surprised that the hon. Member is standing up in support of what the Mayor of London has done with the ULEZ scheme. I think that if he looked at his inbox carefully, he would see that most of his constituents—particularly the poorest in his constituency—do not like the fact that they are having to pay £12.50 just to use their motor vehicles. I do not feel that this is...

Greater London Low Emission Zone Charging (Amendment) Bill (22 Maw 2024)

Gareth Johnson: Maybe the hon. Member has an oasis in south London, where everyone around the outside hates the ULEZ scheme but in Eltham they love it, but I would be very surprised. I gently remind him that most of the roads in Eltham are maintained by Greenwich’s Labour council, which should take its share of responsibility for the state of the roads. My hon. Friend the Member for Watford (Dean Russell)...

Greater London Low Emission Zone Charging (Amendment) Bill (22 Maw 2024)

Gareth Johnson: My hon. Friend is absolutely right. That is typical of what has happened throughout the debate about ULEZ. In July last year, the leader of the Labour party said that ULEZ expansion was a wonderful thing. Come the by-election in Uxbridge and South Ruislip, he said, “Oh no, we have got to think again over this one. I’m not quite sure if we got this one right.” Just this week, he said the...

Greater London Low Emission Zone Charging (Amendment) Bill (22 Maw 2024)

Gareth Johnson: I will not. We had a Westminster Hall debate, at which many colleagues were present. Unfortunately, not a single Labour Back Bencher turned up. It was pitiful and it highlights the Labour party’s mismanagement of the issue. We have the mayoral election coming up in May, and the Conservative candidate, Susan Hall, has pledged to overturn the ULEZ expansion on day one. The quickest and most...

Education: Topical Questions (11 Maw 2024)

Gareth Johnson: I have four grammar schools in my constituency, which provide an important and very popular element of a diverse education system. Therefore, will the Minister please commit today to continue her support of grammar schools, both now and in the future?

Written Answers — Ministry of Justice: Offences against Children: Civil Proceedings ( 7 Maw 2024)

Gareth Johnson: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, if he will make an assessment of the potential merits of (a) removing the limitation period for civil claims relating to childhood sexual abuse and (b) bringing forward legislative proposals to align the law in England and Wales with that in Scotland following the introduction of the Limitation (Child Abuse)(Scotland) Act 2017.

Leasehold and Freehold Reform Bill: New Clause 26 - LTA 1985: Crown application (27 Chw 2024)

Gareth Johnson: These management companies that the Minister alluded to have a literal monopoly over the residents they are meant to serve—in effect, they control the residents, rather than the other way round—so I welcome the amendments made in Committee to ensure that residents can change their management companies. Will he give a commitment to this House that he will ensure that those amendments stay...

Petition - Road safety and Brent Primary School ( 6 Chw 2024)

Gareth Johnson: I am pleased to present to the House a petition on behalf of the Brent Primary School, a fantastic school in my constituency. The school took part in Parliament Week last year, and when I attended, they asked me to present this petition. Mrs Rye, Miss McNally and the whole senior leadership team lead an excellent group of teachers, and an equally excellent group of pupils. The petition...

Illegal Vapes (16 Ion 2024)

Gareth Johnson: Does the hon. Lady not accept that properly and legally produced disposable vapes provide an attractive alternative for adults to stop smoking and thereby save lives? Some companies, although this is not happening a great deal, can now almost fully recycle the components of disposable e-cigarettes. Does she accept that there is a danger that we move from illicit vapes and start targeting...
