Questions to the Mayor of London — The Grenfell tower fire: The Grenfell tower fire (24 Jan 2020)

Sadiq Khan: The Grenfell Tower fire was an appalling tragedy and Londoners will always remember the 72 people who lost their lives in a fire that should never have happened. We owe it to the people who died, their loved ones and those who survived to ensure that no fire like that ever happens again. This week we have seen the results of Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary and Fire & Rescue...

Questions to the Mayor of London — The Grenfell tower fire: The Grenfell tower fire (24 Jan 2020)

Sadiq Khan: Thank you for your question and what you said. In my view, I think phase 2 of the inquiry should have happened before phase 1. What led to this building becoming what it did, becoming so dangerous, so that you had combustible cladding and combustible insulation? That is the real concern that you alluded to around the country as well. The Government has chosen to do it the way it did, which is...

Questions to the Mayor of London — The Grenfell tower fire: The Grenfell tower fire (24 Jan 2020)

Sadiq Khan: Can I disaggregate two parts of my answer? One is that our firefighters are amazing. No firefighter went to Grenfell without wanting to save lives. They are so brave, they work remarkably hard and they are a credit to the brigade. We should really applaud firefighters in our city. They are men and women doing a great job. There is a separate issue about structures, organisations, management...

Questions to the Mayor of London — Young Londoners: Young Londoners (24 Jan 2020)

Sadiq Khan: Young people must be involved in decisions that shape the capital. One way is through my Peer Outreach Workers. They are a team of 30 young people who represent the diverse life experiences of young Londoners. Their work helps shape my policies, strategies and services, from culture, health and violence reduction to regeneration, the environment and transport. They represent us, reaching into...

Questions to the Mayor of London — Young Londoners: Young Londoners (24 Jan 2020)

Sadiq Khan: Thank you for the question. A number of things just on Brexit. Talk London is the city’s online community and we are getting more young people involved in the community. That means marketing it to young people. I know some people do not like us advertising our services to young people, but we are doing it. We have also opened up City Hall for the day. I know you were there. Many young...

Questions to the Mayor of London — Young Londoners: Young Londoners (24 Jan 2020)

Sadiq Khan: Young people really care. They are interested. They like politics. Not party politics, but they like politics. They are interested in political issues. I think we do a disservice by not making it easier for them to get involved and empowering young people. I want to turn young people into not just citizens but active citizens going forward. The alternative is people not just being apathetic...

Questions to the Mayor of London — Hammersmith Bridge and Cycleway 9: Hammersmith Bridge and Cycleway 9 (24 Jan 2020)

Sadiq Khan: Thank you, Chair. Enabling works for the new cycle lane between Brentford and Olympia started at Kew Bridge last week. The main works are due to start on Monday. There is strong support for this new route; 59% of people who responded to the consultation supported the plans. Any further delay is another day on which people face unnecessary road danger. This new safer cycling route will enable...

Questions to the Mayor of London — Hammersmith Bridge and Cycleway 9: Hammersmith Bridge and Cycleway 9 (24 Jan 2020)

Sadiq Khan: There are two short points I would make in starting to respond to that question. In the last three years alone, along the area we are talking about where the cycleway will go, there have been 155 pedestrian and cyclist casualties. Two people have lost their lives and 20 more people have suffered serious injuries. I have met bereaved families who have suffered road traffic accidents and also...

Questions to the Mayor of London — Fuel Poverty: Fuel Poverty (24 Jan 2020)

Sadiq Khan: Thank you, Chair. 398,000 London households are fuel-poor, the highest level since records began. It is inexcusable that over 3,100 excess winter deaths occur annually in London. Through my Fuel Poverty Action Plan we are tackling fuel poverty on three fronts: improving energy efficiency, maximising incomes and delivering fairer energy bills. Firstly, my Warmer Homes programme improved the...

Questions to the Mayor of London — Fuel Poverty: Fuel Poverty (24 Jan 2020)

Sadiq Khan: We were due to launch London Power in the last few weeks but purdah got in the way and the advice from the officers was not to. We hope to launch it in the New Year. I will be criticised from some Members of the Assembly but we will have a marketing campaign. We are damned if we do and damned if we do not. If we do not market it, I am criticised for people not being aware of it. If we do...

Questions to the Mayor of London — Fuel Poverty: Fuel Poverty (24 Jan 2020)

Sadiq Khan: We have to be honest. We cannot fill the massive hole left by lack of Government support. That is one of my frustrations around the climate emergency as well. There is only so much we can do without national Government support. We are giving record sums from City Hall. City Hall has never done the stuff we are doing. We are helping record numbers through Energy for Londoners and we are making...

Questions to the Mayor of London — Passenger safety in London: Passenger safety in London (24 Jan 2020)

Sadiq Khan: Thank you for your question. The safety and security of Londoners is always my number one priority. As the independent regulator and licensing authority for private hire vehicles (PHVs) in London, I am pleased that TfL is prepared to take difficult and sometimes controversial decisions to protect the travelling public. This was demonstrated very clearly in the way that TfL has handled the two...

Questions to the Mayor of London — Passenger safety in London: Passenger safety in London (24 Jan 2020)

Sadiq Khan: The new system will begin in February 2020.

Questions to the Mayor of London — Passenger safety in London: Passenger safety in London (24 Jan 2020)

Sadiq Khan: Let us deal with a number of those issues. Firstly, it is worth putting on record that this came to our attention because of the fantastic work done by Unite, the trade union, a good example of a trade union making recommendations that improve public safety. It is not simply their workers who benefit but the public benefits as well. There is both a consumer interest and a producer interest....

Questions to the Mayor of London — Passenger safety in London: Passenger safety in London (24 Jan 2020)

Sadiq Khan: The issue is not knowing if there is a problem. We know there is a problem. The issue is what the solution would be. We do not have the same levers with operators in the private hire sector as we have with trams, which were also an issue, and buses and the Tubes and the trains. There is a whole issue around regulation of PHVs and that is one of the issues that I am hoping the Government will...

Questions to the Mayor of London — Passenger safety in London: Passenger safety in London (24 Jan 2020)

Sadiq Khan: Because they have more powers –

Questions to the Mayor of London — Passenger safety in London: Passenger safety in London (24 Jan 2020)

Sadiq Khan: Either deliberately or unintentionally, the Assembly Member is not understanding the problems in relation to regulation of PHVs which are not there in relation to buses.

Questions to the Mayor of London — Crime on the Tube and Buses: Crime on the Tube and Buses (24 Jan 2020)

Sadiq Khan: Can I thank the Assembly Member for his really important question? Our transport networks in London are safe. However, one crime is always one too many and we take this issue incredibly seriously. Every day, 11 million passengers travel on TfL’s public transport services. For every 1 million passenger journeys, there are ten reported crimes. By comparison, if we look at Britain’s...

Questions to the Mayor of London — Crime on the Tube and Buses: Crime on the Tube and Buses (24 Jan 2020)

Sadiq Khan: As I have explained in my answer, crime is going up generally on the public transport estate across the country, as indeed it is on the streets. One of the reasons is because criminals are targeting the public transport estate across the country. You have seen, for 1 million journeys, it has more than doubled across the country. In London, we should be hopeful because, since June [2019] when...
