Following the concerning HMICFRS report into the London Fire Brigade, how will you monitor the progress of the Brigade in making the improvements requested, and when will such a system be in place?

I have regular monthly meetings with the London Fire Commissioner and the Deputy Mayor. Additionally, the Deputy Mayor has a monthly Fire and Resilience Board meeting with the Brigade’s senior officers which will receive updates and scrutinise progress against the required improvements. My Deputy Mayor is working with the Brigade on proposals for improved assurance arrangements, and will consult the Fire, Resilience and Emergency Planning Committee to ensure Assembly Members have confidence in the rigour of the assurance process.
