City Hall wants to reduce the number of London Assembly members and London borough councillors from 15 to 11.
Speaking on LBC 97.3fm this morning Boris Johnson said:
I haven't had a conversation of any such kind with George. George and I have a very, very good working relationship and indeed old, old friendship.
What we both want to do is get David Cameron re-elected. That is the project about which we are united.
Boris Johnson then ruled out any attempt to return to the Commons before 2015, and indicated he wanted to serve out his full term as mayor, which runs to 2016.
I am so sick of this subject, I think I'm going to expire sometimes. I am going to get on with my job as mayor of London.
The answer is I am sticking to my job that I was elected to do in 2012 and indeed in 2008. I'm very, very privileged to be here.
Boris Johnson has played down the prospect of a Commons comeback at the General Election, indicating that he is committed to seeing out his full term as London Mayor.
Boris Johnson dismissed reports of a clash with George Osborne over claims that the Chancellor tried to persuade him stand again as an MP in next year's election.
Mayor of London Boris Johnson has announced the creation of thousands of new apprenticeships to mark the start of National Apprenticeship Week today. The new jobs will all be within the capital's hospitality industry.
Deputy Mayor Stephen Greenhalgh has admitted that the water cannon procurement process may begin before the Home Secretary approves their use but he has insisted that no money will change hands.
A London Assembly report has found that the Metropolitan Police has failed to make a "convincing case" for buying three water cannon.
The police and crime committee says that, with no specific intelligence of disorder, it is unclear why there is a "rush" to get them.
London Mayor Boris Johnson is consulting on plans to pay up to £100,000 each for three second-hand water cannon from Germany.
The Met has said the water cannon would be "rarely seen and rarely used" and it claims to have public support for the idea.
The vehicles have been used in Northern Ireland but they are not currently authorised in mainland Britain.
The home secretary must approve their introduction in England and Wales.
Metropolitan Police Commissioner Bernard Hogan-Howe is appearing before the Assembly's Police and Crime Committee.
He's likely to face questions about his plan to introduce water cannons to mainland UK for the first time, ahead of a result of a Home Office consultation on the issue.
Mr Hogan-Howe wants to buy a second hand water cannon from Germany.
The mayor has supported the idea, but the assembly believes the Commissioner has failed to make the case for buying the device.
"I have been in public life for 30 years and all of those years have been about protecting the vulnerable, protecting women and children," Harriet Harman insisted today.
"That's why I find it so unfair and offensive that the Daily Mail should put smear and innuendo on me as if somehow I supported those people that all my public life I've been fighting against.
"I think they are wrong to be doing that and that's why I'm speaking out."
"It's actually not me that should be apologising for something that I haven't done - it's the Mail that should be apologising for their smear and innuendo," Harriet Harman said today.
