Boris Johnson tells meeting he wants to remain Mayor
MAYOR of London Boris Johnson has said he does not want to be parachuted in to another MP's seat in order to return to the House of Commons, a Derbyshire Tory party member has claimed.
The Mayor of London was the main speaker at a Conservative Party meeting held at Morley Hayes hotel yesterday. One of the 200 party members attending was Peter Dawson, of Borrowash – who wants Mr Johnson to make a run to become Tory leader.
It has been reported that Sir Peter Tapsell, MP for Louth and Horncastle, Lincolnshire, would be willing to give up his safe seat to enable Mr Johnson to return to the Commons.
Keen to find out if this was true, Mr Dawson said he asked Mr Johnson if he would be willing to take up a seat in this way? He said Mr Johnson replied: "No. I intend to carry on as Mayor of London." His term as Mayor is due to finish in 2016.
