London Assembly Members will tomorrow question Mayor of London, Boris Johnson and Metropolitan Police Commissioner Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe about policing in the capital.
Questions will cover the following areas:
- How do you intend to use police resources more efficiently over the next three years?
- Will your budget for 2013/14 reverse the recent decline in operational capacity?
- What flexibility is there to alter the Mayor’s budget proposals following the current public consultation on the draft Police and Crime Plan?
- It is now the first anniversary of a directly elected police commissioner for London. What difference have Londoners noticed, and how have and will these new powers be exercised over policing in London?
The meeting will take place on Wednesday, 16 January from 10am in the Chamber at City Hall (The Queen’s Walk, London SE1). Media and members of the public are invited to attend. The meeting can also be viewed via webcast.
Notes for Editors:
- Full agenda papers.
- As well as investigating issues that matter to Londoners, the London Assembly acts as a check and a balance on the Mayor.
