Questions to the Mayor of London — Outer London Transport: Outer London Transport (11 May 2021)

Questions to the Mayor of London — Future of our Police Stations and front counters: Future of our Police Stations and front counters (11 May 2021)

Sadiq Khan: The Commissioner and I have been clear since the publication of the Public Access Strategy that each borough will be served by a 24/7 front counter while the number of buildings across London are rationalised. When the Public Access Strategy was under consideration in 2016 and 2017, we were doing everything we could to mitigate the impact of the £850 million cuts the MPS had to find because...

Questions to the Mayor of London — Challenges faced in London: Challenges faced in London (11 May 2021)

Sadiq Khan: Thank you, Chair. When I was first elected Mayor in 2016, no one could have predicted the challenges we would be confronted with over the following five years. We have had the horrific fire at Grenfell Tower, a tragedy we are still contending with as we continue to fight for justice. We have had a series of cowardly terrorist attacks that shook our city, and Brexit, a bad deal that has left...

Questions to the Mayor of London — Grenfell Tower Inquiry Phase 2 and Public Safety: Grenfell Tower Inquiry Phase 2 and Public Safety (11 May 2021)

Sadiq Khan: Andrew, in your last MQTs, I would like to thank you for nine years of service as a Member of the Assembly, for assiduously raising issues that concern your residents and often giving me a hard time in the process, rightly so. I also thank you for your longstanding commitment to improving our fire service and building safety, particularly in the wake of Grenfell. The Grenfell Tower fire was a...

Questions to the Mayor of London — Children and Young People’s Play and Recreation Space: Children and Young People’s Play and Recreation Space (11 May 2021)

Sadiq Khan: Chair, if you will indulge me, before I answer the question, can I just thank Nicky for the many thoughtful and insightful contributions she has made to planning and the built environment over a career working on behalf of Londoners? Both my new London Plan and its predecessors have all been strongly influenced by Nicky’s passionate campaigning. It is also fair to say that without, Nicky,...

Questions to the Mayor of London — Wormwood Scrubs Green: Wormwood Scrubs Green (11 May 2021)

Sadiq Khan: Wormwood Scrubs is a precious public open space, a wildlife habitat and a crucial amenity for Londoners. My London Plan, signed off last month by the Government, affords the Scrubs the status of protected bush, forest and open land. Old Oak and Park Royal Development Corporation (OPDC) as the local planning authority reinforces protection in its newly submitted Local Plan, which includes a...

Questions to the Mayor of London — Cutting waste creation with your Green New Deal: Cutting waste creation with your Green New Deal (11 May 2021)

Sadiq Khan: Chair, Assembly Member Russell has been consistent on this, really chasing me on this area for the last five years, and I am grateful for that. I have been clear that our recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic must be green and inclusive. As part of that recovery there is a Green New Deal mission that aims to tackle the climate and ecological emergencies and improve air quality, doubling the...

Questions to the Mayor of London — A Mayor For All Londoners: A Mayor For All Londoners (11 May 2021)

Sadiq Khan: Thank you for your question, Jennette, and for your service to London over the past 21 years as an Assembly Member. Your campaigning on transport, on crime, on affordable housing, has been a real benefit, not just to northeast Londoners but to all Londoners. You have driven forward campaigns to end female genital mutilation in London, to address sexual harassment on public transport, to...

Questions to the Mayor of London — Next Steps for Air Quality Improvements in London: Next Steps for Air Quality Improvements in London (11 May 2021)

Sadiq Khan: Air quality is indeed an equalities issue as much as a health issue. If you are less well off or from a BAME background, you are more likely to live in areas with the worst air pollution. It is an issue of social justice as far as I am concerned. Thanks to the policies we put in place to tackle this since 2016, the number of Londoners living in areas exceeding the legal limit for nitrogen...

Questions to the Mayor of London — New Metropolitan Police Officers: New Metropolitan Police Officers (11 May 2021)

Sadiq Khan: Keeping Londoners safe is my top priority and I have invested a record amount in the MPS, putting an extra 1,300 police officers on London’s streets. I welcomed the national uplift of 20,000 officers that was announced in 2019, which should help fill the big gap left by the 21,000 officers that were cut nationally between 2010 and 2019. I have supported the Commissioner in saying that...

Questions to the Mayor of London — Transparency: Transparency (11 May 2021)

Sadiq Khan: Yes, I am confident that I have overseen the most transparent administration City Hall has ever had.

I have been asked over 22,500 Mayor’s questions and I have made over 300 commitments following exchanges with Assembly Members. I have published around 1,600 [Mayoral] Decisions. In the first...

Questions to the Mayor of London — Sprinklers as the next step to fire safety: Sprinklers as the next step to fire safety (11 May 2021)

Sadiq Khan: Chair, in your last MQTs, I would first like to thank you. Thank you, Navin, for all you have done for Londoners over the 13 years, including recently as Chair. Your campaigning for step-free access on the TfL network has helped us to make changes that will benefit all Londoners and your work on sprinklers has pushed this agenda forward. You were, Navin, the first Londoner of Indian origin...

Questions to the Mayor of London — Social Housing: Social Housing (11 May 2021)

Sadiq Khan: Chair, I would like to thank the Member for continuing to raise these important issues since his return to the Assembly last year. Building more social housing is my top housing priority because the need for more local rented housing is overwhelming. Of the total 65,878 new homes that the London Plan’s Strategic Housing Market Assessment shows are needed each year, two-thirds should be...

Questions to the Mayor of London — Scale of Covid-19 impact: Scale of Covid-19 impact (11 May 2021)

Sadiq Khan: It is heart-breaking that more than 18,000 Londoners and more than 140,000 people across the UK have now died with coronavirus. Every one of these lives lost is a tragedy and my thoughts and prayers are with their families and friends. It pains me that the coronavirus crisis has not only exposed but increased inequality in our city and across the country. I was concerned that London was not...

Questions to the Mayor of London — London’s Recovery: London’s Recovery (11 May 2021)

Sadiq Khan: The pandemic has shown us how willing Londoners are to step up, come together, and support each other.  The building strong communities mission of the London Recovery Programme is looking to build on that incredible community spirit by ensuring all Londoners have access to a community hub. The London Recovery Board has made a clear commitment that London, its communities and civil society...

Questions to the Mayor of London — Common Sense: Common Sense (10 May 2021)

Sadiq Khan: Everything I have done over the past five years has been done with Londoners’ best interests at heart. I have kept my promise to stand up for London and we have made some big changes that have improved our city in important ways. It is common sense to protect London’s environment. We have reduced toxic air pollution by a third, declared a climate emergency and protected our green spaces...

Questions to the Mayor of London — Total cost of Silvertown Road Tunnel to Londoners: Total cost of Silvertown Road Tunnel to Londoners (10 May 2021)

Sadiq Khan: Investment in the Silvertown Tunnel will bring widespread benefits to London, none of which will be realised if the contract is cancelled. Suggestions that the money being spent on this scheme could be invested elsewhere are misleading and inaccurate. The scheme is funded by private finance, which simply cannot be reallocated. Finally addressing the longstanding issues at the Blackwall Tunnel...

Questions to the Mayor of London — TfL Funding: TfL Funding (10 May 2021)

Sadiq Khan: Before I respond, I want to thank Assembly Member Dr Moore for her service. She has been a great representative for Londoners and an excellent Chair of the Transport Committee. I know she will continue her work on housing, regeneration and economic development in her role as a Councillor in Barnet, as well as her campaigning on road safety and air quality. In January [2021], TfL published...
