Siân Berry: What mapping will the Violence Reduction Unit be doing to study mental health in London?
Siân Berry: Following the Violence Reduction Unit Partnership Reference Group meeting on 26 November 2018, what are the Violence Reduction Unit’s main objectives?
Siân Berry: What is the total number of witness intimidation incidents recorded by the Metropolitan Police Service in each year since 2013?
Siân Berry: Thank you for your response to the London Assembly motion passed on 7 June 2018 about cat deaths on the road. The campaigners from Cats Matter have received new data which shows there is still an inconsistent approach being taken by councils across London when dealing with cat deaths on the road. Given the unanimous cross-party support on this issue, could you raise this with London's...
Siân Berry: Have you considered helping to rebuild public confidence in stop and search by having a policy similar to that adopted in 2015 by Northamptonshire police, where any officer found to have misused stop and search powers, even once, is prohibited from using this tactic?
Siân Berry: How many complaints has the Metropolitan Police Service received in each year since 2013 about incidents where a member of the public has been stopped and searched when a PACE section 60 order is in place? Could you provide a breakdown per month for each year?
Siân Berry: Could you provide details of the information the Metropolitan Police Service has given to schools and youth and community organisations to inform young people of their rights when being stopped and search under PACE section 60?
Siân Berry: Could you provide a list of all dates and times, since 15 May 2018, during which a section 60 PACE order issued by the Metropolitan Police Service covered the area of a whole borough? Could you also provide the borough name in each case?
Siân Berry: How many times has a section 60 PACE order been issued by the Metropolitan Police Service in each London Borough? Could you provide the data for each month from April 2017 to date?
Siân Berry: How are you monitoring whether the number of Londoners being allocated a home ahead of overseas buyers is going up, thanks to your ‘first dibs’ approach?
Siân Berry: Thank you, Mr Mayor. It is disappointing that you do not have data on the sales so far to show us today. As I understand it, the key difference between this and the previous Mayor’s [Boris Johnson] ineffective ‘Concordat’ policy with developers is that your agreement limits actual sales to Londoners for one month and then to UK residents for a further three months, while the previous...
Siân Berry: Yes, sorry to interrupt, but I am looking at the press release that was put out when you launched the agreement. You called it ‘landmark’ and you said that this was the first time you had got promises about sales rather than just marketing, and so it is that, yes?
Siân Berry: Yes. That is what I said at the beginning. I want to ask about the website particularly because, obviously, that was part of the policy announcement and the website is up and running now. I have been monitoring it. I am on it now. The ‘first dibs’ part of your website says, “Go here and search”, but there is no choice of searching for ‘first dibs’ homes. The adverts for private...
Siân Berry: It does not say that only Londoners or UK residents can buy them. There is no restriction.
Siân Berry: It is only the registered user that can use it?
Siân Berry: Great. Last night I looked and there were no homes when I looked for private sale homes under £350,000. Today there are three adverts that seem to have gone up this morning. That does not seem very many. Can we get a week-by-week breakdown of what has been advertised on the site so far?
Siân Berry: Yes, but there are very few homes at that price. That is the point. That is why I am asking for the week-by-week breakdown. I want to see what is actually going up there.
Siân Berry: Yes, but the thing is I am just trying to keep track of this ‘first dibs’ policy. It was an absolute mantra of yours in the 2016 election. Every time housing came up, you were there saying, “First dibs for Londoners, golden bricks”. We do need to be able to get the monitoring of this as soon as possible. Your review will be out before the next election so that we can hold you to account?
Siân Berry: Yes or no, ideally, because my colleague is ââ
Siân Berry: I just want to know if your review will be out before the next election.
