How much funding have you provided for cleaning up graffiti across London since you became Mayor? Please give a breakdown by borough.

Responsibility for street cleansing, including graffiti, lies with the 32 London boroughs and the City of London. The enforcement powers and control measures to tackle litter and refuse are given to local authorities under the Environment Protection Act. Therefore, I do not provide funding directly for graffiti. Councils may assign a proportion of any funding they receive for street cleansing to graffiti removal, but this decision is taken at a borough level and information on the cost of removal will be held by the individual boroughs.  Please see my response to Mayor’s Question 2022/4304 for further information.
