Tom Elvidge - Uber

We're pleased to have secured this appeal to defend tens of thousands of drivers who risk losing their livelihoods because they can't pass an essay writing test. While we've always supported spoken English skills, writing an essay has nothing to do with communicating with passengers or getting them safely from A to B. We urge TfL and the Mayor not to introduce these disproportionate and discriminatory rules before the appeal is

You hear parents telling children if they don't do as they're told then they'll tell a police officer! I know it's only lighthearted but for children to be scared of seeing police, or see them as an intimidating authority figure, is the last thing we want. You can see from the photos and from the looks on the kids' faces on the day that they all had a wonderful time − they were our VIPs for the day and it was a pleasure to host

Michael O'Leary - Ryanair

If there ever was a crash on an aircraft, God forbid, a seatbelt won't save you. You don't need a seatbelt on the London Underground. You don't need a seatbelt on trains which are travelling at 120mph and if they crash you're all dead….feedback

We need to change attitudes to carrying knives and are encouraging key people in positions of influence to drive this messaging forward. It is those individuals who will have the biggest impact on getting the message out there to young people that it is not acceptable to carry a knife. The recovery of these knives shows that the message is getting out there. Not everyone wants to call police or contact us when they find a knife so these bins give people the chance to dispose of knives and get these weapons off the

Sadiq Khan

I am deeply concerned about the rise in knife crime on London's streets. Dozens of families have been bereaved – many more have seen their loved ones severely injured. We need to send a strong signal that carrying and using knives is totally and utterly unacceptable. And we need to do more to educate young people around the dangers of carrying knives if we are to cut injuries and

Alan Reid

When you look at these accounts, the bottom line is the Sovereign Grant last year equated to 65 pence per person, per annum, in the United Kingdom… That's the price of a first class stamp.

Taavet Hinrikus - TransferWise

Taavet Hinrikus - TransferWise

If it's not possible to get people to come to London, and if existing people start moving for some reason, I think the position of London is somewhat in danger. We have never thought about setting up a new headquarters. If we need to do something, and we need to do it in order to keep on serving our customers in Europe, what we would do is set up an office in Europe. That's something which we are exploring. We have a great team in London, with 150 people. There's no point in moving these people but we need to make sure we can keep on servicing our customers in mainland

Taavet Hinrikus - TransferWise

Andy Slaughter

Since the Shepherds Court fire little has been done by either the manufacturer or your department to address the safety concerns it raised. There has been no recall of the defective machines and the advice that they were safe to use if attended was only changed in February this year after the threat of legal action. Despite parliamentary debates, meetings with ministers and extensive correspondence, your department ignored requests by myself and other MPs of all parties, as well as the London fire brigade, Which? and Electrical Safety First to recall these

New cases among gay men in London have fallen for the first time. We’re turning a corner, but there’s a lot o do to bring attitudes and awareness up to date. In December 1986 my partner, Brian, fell ill. We were spending the Christmas break at our holiday home in Suffolk. Brian spent all of Christmas Day in bed, and on Boxing Day morning I could tell he wasn’t getting better. I called a doctor friend to get his opinion. He took one look at Brian and said we must take him to hospital straight

Niro Sivanathan

Regardless of the party, if people are feeling they don't have control or things are not certain, these are the types of leaders [voters] are going to prefer. The conditions were one where they felt very upset -- and then along came the candidate who had all the rhetoric and all the behavior of someone who, psychologically, they believed would be the one to get them out of this

The main takeaway is that whenever individuals feel a lack of control in their environment or their lives. If people were living in a Zip code where the poverty rate, unemployment rate and housing vacancy rate were high, they showed a greater preference for voting for

Bob Doris

There are thousands of families and individuals living in high-rise accommodation across Scotland and they are understandably looking for reassurances at this deeply worrying time. Whilst both the Scottish Government and our social housing providers have moved quickly to take action and to allay fears, it is important that our committee provides an additional layer of scrutiny both in terms of fire safety and building standards. That is precisely what we intend to

Dawn Foster

Unlike the Kensington and Chelsea leader, Georgia Gould showed Camden residents that councils can have an accountable and human face. On Friday evening, outside Camden town hall, council leader Georgia Gould defended the decision to evacuate the nearby Chalcots estate due to safety concerns. Gould seemed genuinely worried, and told the BBC that Camden had been first in the queue to test its cladding, finding on Thursday that the panels fitted were “not to the standard that we had commissioned” and announcing they would be removed. At a public meeting the same night, Gould says residents raised other safety concerns she’d been unaware of: Camden council and the London fire brigade assessed the block, and the council was advised to

Frank de Boer

I am thrilled to be appointed as manager of Crystal Palace Football Club. It is a great honour to take charge of such an historic club, a club that is known around the world for its hugely proud and passionate fan base. This role is a hugely exciting opportunity for me, and I cannot wait to get started in the Premier League with the players and staff here in south London. The club can still grow further and further, because every year English clubs spend a lot of money, so it is possible to do something

Barry Turner

I would like to know just what tests these panels are failing. For any material to undergo a fire test as laid down in BS476 [which grades fire resistance] or one of the EU equivalent standards, you need a specific panel size, it needs to be mounted in a specific way. There are fire tests done on individual products, but you need to test them combined [including insulation, cavity and fire stops] to see if they meet performance criteria for the job as a whole. That is how these systems are assessed for compliance with the building

I believe we are close to concluding an appropriate agreement with the Conservative Party to support a minority government on a confidence and supply basis...progress has been slow but we continue to work through the issues. We're back in London again and my hope is that we will be able to finalise a deal between ourselves and the Conservative Party. I think that this agreement will bring the prospects of doing a deal at Stormont closer because this will have a positive impact in relation to Northern

Sadiq Khan

I think they've done the right thing, you've got to err on the side of caution. You can't play Russian roulette with people's safety. Obviously it's terribly inconvenient and a huge nuisance to these families to have to move but I think the Council has done the right thing, because what can't be accepetable is when a Council knows a building is unsafe for the Council still to allow people to occupy those

Georgia Gould

This morning council staff will conduct further door knocking to ask those who remain to leave, and issue another letter reiterating to residents who are still remaining in the Taplow, Bray, Dorney and Burnham blocks, that they must leave. By remaining in the blocks these residents risk delaying the work that is required and that we are undertaking to make these homes safe. It is not safe to remain in these blocks and our residents' safety will continue to be the council's number one

I urge the government to make sure all necessary support, including, crucially, financial support, is urgently made available to councils across the country so they can deal swiftly and effectively with the scale of the fire safety challenge.

Bob Doris

All parts of the UK must learn from the disaster at Grenfell Tower and we must do all we can to ensure no-one has to experience the loss of a loved one in such tragic circumstances. Our committee will be reviewing building safety standards in full, particularly in highly dense urban areas with many high rises. We will speak to local authorities, landlords, tenants and of course the Scottish government as part of this

Amendments to housing regulations that I first proposed in 2015 were voted down by the government. It must now support measures like them. Today the friends and families of the victims of the Grenfell Tower disaster remain in mourning and a community remains in shock. As a neighbouring MP – and previously a representative for that part of north Kensington where the devastated tower stands – I am deeply aware of how widely and intensely that shock is

John Clancy

The dreadful events in London have understandably triggered an outburst of public anger and demands that councils need to do far more to protect tenants living in high-rise

Georgia Gould

I know some residents are angry and upset, but I want to be very clear that Camden Council acted to protect them. Grenfell changed everything, and when told our blocks were unsafe to remain in, we acted. It's unbelievable. I understand that it's for our safety but they can't just ask us to evacuate with such short notice. There's no organisation and it's

Georgia Gould

The most important thing, I think, is to keep communicating with people, take a personalised approach, you know. We've got social services here working with people who need extra support. And just keep reassuring people that we are doing this because we want them to be safe and we will do everything in our power to make sure they're safely housed before we get them back into their

Grenfell house [sic] is not just an accident. Grenfell house is not just an unfortunate incident. Those hundreds of people that died is a direct consequence of Tory attitudes in social housing. The Tories think people in social housing are second-class citizens. And as we have seen from Grenfell house, they are offering them second-class standards of safety. So, a direct consequence of that. A direct consequence of outsourcing ... and a direct consequence of

Glynton Evans

To a certain extent, we are hoisted by the petard of what happened here in 1666, the Great Fire of London, and we look at fire as a horizontal problem, with a fire in one building affecting the exterior of another building. The problem with cladding is that it will, if it is able, spread fire, and it will spread it

Using a phone allows us to become closer to the experience of shopping. The flexibility makes it easier to engage with these retailers, and the trust we have in them improves. Particularly in London, there has been a great impact on travelling now you can pay with your mobile phone. That really started engaging us to use our phone as our wallet. Apple Pay has been very important. We have seen that people have been distrustful of banking since the financial crisis and my research has indicated that technology is more

The white van that collided with worshippers this week crashed in a road once known as the ‘worst’ in north London. Whadcoat Street, which hardly merits the latter word, is a strange little appendage to one of the busiest highways in north London. A cul-de-sac that strikes north from Seven Sisters Road roughly opposite the old Astoria cinema, later the Rainbow, where Jimi Hendrix burned his first guitar, it can’t be more than 50 metres long. All this week, flowers and messages of love and solidarity have decorated one short side of it, because it was here that Makram Ali died and 11 other people were injured, two seriously, after a white van mounted the Seven Sisters Road pavement soon after midnight on Monday, ploughing into a group of worshippers who were returning from Ramadan prayers before it made a sharp left turn into the side

We realise that this is hugely distressing for everyone affected and we will be doing all we can, alongside the London Fire Brigade and other authorities, to support our residents at this difficult time.

Preliminary tests on the insulation samples collected from Grenfell Tower showed that they combusted soon after the test started. The initial tests on the cladding tiles also failed the safety tests.

They are testing the cladding on the building and they expect to make the results of this public, I think in the next 48 hours. What we need to ensure is that when the fire services, when the police have done their investigation, that any action that is necessary immediately as a result of the identification of the cause of the fire and the reasons why the fire took such hold - which is the issue that is of particular concern - then any action that is necessary is taken and it will be

Tube staff and the millions of passengers who use the underground regularly deserve to breathe the cleanest air possible. TfL's new underground air quality programme will help ensure dust and particles are kept to an absolute minimum.

This data offers hope but also a new and urgent challenge. This model needs to be sustained, built on, and replicated elsewhere across the country.

I'm more concerned now with them making sure the cladding will not result in another Grenfell. Grenfell was so heartbreaking. I'm a parent, I can imagine what it's like to be trapped with children in your

Bob O'Toole

There are about 20 to 30 council staff here at the moment on the estate [they are going] to all parts of the estate to inform residents. A lot of people are worried, because they all thought it was all safe. A lot of the residents are calling for thorough sprinkler systems to be put in, and fire alarms. We have no fire

Harriet Harman

As we move forwards, we must recognise that for too long in this country, under governments of both colours, we simply haven't given enough attention to social housing. And this itself is a symptom of a more fundamental issue. It shouldn't take a disaster of this kind for us to remember that there are people in Britain today living lives that are so far removed from those that many here in Westminster

Harriet Harman

So, long after the TV cameras have gone and the world has moved on, let the legacy of this awful tragedy be that we resolve never to forget these people and instead gear our policies and our thinking towards making their lives better and bringing them into the political

Harriet Harman

She said that it was an unimaginable tragedy and that those deaths should not have happened. They would not have happened if the government had acted on the Lakanal coroner's inquest rulings. In this tower, just a few miles from the Houses of Parliament in the heart of our great city, people live a fundamentally different life, do not feel the state works for them and are therefore mistrustful of

Theresa May

We can test over 100 buildings a day, and the results come within hours. I urge any landlord who owns a building of this kind to send samples for testing as soon as possible. Any results will be communicated immediately to local authorities and local fire services. We cannot and will not ask people to live in unsafe

Jeremy Corbyn

At least 79 people are dead. It is both a tragedy and an outrage because every single one of those deaths could and should have been avoided. From Hillsborough, to the child sex abuse scandal, to Grenfell Tower - the pattern is consistent: working-class people's voices are ignored, their concerns dismissed by those in power. The Grenfell Tower residents and North Kensington community deserve answers and thousands and thousands of people living in tower blocks around the country need very urgent

Simon Munk

It's not just 'if you build it, they will come'; it's 'this is where to build it. That 'no one cycles in my area' conversation is pretty much

Simon Munk

It really does demonstrate in a strong, data-led way if you spend money, people will cycle. That changes the tone and the tenor of the conversation quite

Rachel Aldred

It's great to see Transport for London basing their strategic cycle planning on cycling potential analysis. We need to be looking at trips that aren't currently cycled, but could be, and building infrastructure and services to give people the choice of cycling those trips. That's what a cycling potential analysis

While historically mobility, talent management, and rewards have been managed independently of one another, organisations are now using a more holistic approach to enhance their mobility strategies. Compensation is important to be competitive and must be determined appropriately based on the cost of living, currency, and

Rita Ora

My team at the time thought it wasn't a good idea and it would be a waste of time. I thought differently because my online presence grew really dramatically ... And so the team ... they're like, Well we're not helping you, we can't do it. We're not going to put money into it.' I said, Well fine! I'll put my own money into it.' And so I

I think hosting is one of the funnest things I've done so far ... I love talking and you really kind of communicate with the viewers at home, which is my fav. ('Boy Band' is) a good gig 'cause I don't have to be the one to deliver the bad

And I phoned up Iggy (Azalea) ... she came on the road. It was so, like, small tour bus. I think we, at one point, shared one microphone. ...And you know what, every single show was sold

Farhad Ahmad

The situation in the country, there is so much more division. You see a change in the tide. The three attacks, Westminster, Manchester, London Bridge, and then this happened here as well. It seems it might be turning into a vicious cycle of revenge attacks. So we have that in the back of our minds. If this person targeted Muslims thinking there is some problem with the teachings of Islam, then it means that there are people who think that on a larger scale as well. So they need to be reached out to, otherwise the divide is going to get bigger and bigger and

This is an absolute disgrace. The original affordable provision was bad enough as it was. The system is broken, and the viability model is not fit for

George Salmon - Hargreaves Lansdown

Opening up the possibility of engaging in share buybacks allowed it to take advantage of what the group must have seen as a depressed share price. Engaging in more buybacks would be an indicator of continued bullishness, and should thus be a positive sign for

Rob Perrins

Beyond 2021 it's more uncertain. We're a long-term complex business, and our work today affects profitability 2021-24. The current results reflect the work we did in 2011-12 when we bought land and got the planning

Anthony Codling - Jefferies

Not only has it delivered profits today ahead of the market's expectations, but it has also reiterated profit guidance for the five years ending April 2021. A bold move given the current climate, but in our view it is a brave or perhaps foolhardy person who bets against Berkeley

Rob Perrins

We are worried further out because of the macro risks, uncertainty and operational risks such as in the sales market, which we have highlighted before. The market is not functioning for us as well as it should be due to stamp

Daniel Day-Lewis will no longer be working as an actor. He is immensely grateful to all of his collaborators and audiences over the many years. This is a private decision and neither he nor his representatives will make any further comment on this

John McDonnell

They haven't got an overall majority. So, yes, they have got the right to bring forward their own programme, but I don't believe, actually, that they are legitimate in the sense that they have got a mandate that they asked for. We are now in a situation where I don't think they have got the right to govern. However, they are now bringing forward their programme. We'll seek to amend it. I think there is such disarray now, in the interest of the country, they should stand down and give Labour the opportunity of forming a minority

Ali Habib

There has been an outpouring of sympathy for all for the recent terror attacks but hardly a whisper on this attack. People are both scared and angry. Parents are scared to send their children to evening prayers. I don't think people understand how much these attacks affect all of

Alan Crawley

It's all very well in theory, but we need to read the small print. Putting a group of traumatized people who have lost loved ones and all their possessions in the corner of a shiny new building, isn't going to solve the problem in itself. The government should answer the resident's questions first before making these vague

Rita Ora

It's an amazing thing that we're doing because it's a very touchy subject for me because that's my neighborhood ... you know, I played in that block and my friends who grew up in that block who still lived in that block that we still can't find – it's a tragedy. It was hard for me to even sing

The residents of Grenfell Tower have been through some of the most harrowing and traumatic experiences imaginable and it is our duty to support them. Our priority is to get everyone who has lost their home permanently rehoused locally as soon as possible, so that they can begin to rebuild their lives. The government will continue to do everything we can as fast as we can to support those affected by this terrible
