Latin American community in London

Motion detail

This Assembly notes the significant size of the Latin American community in London and especially some inner London Boroughs and believes that certain issues relating to their lack of official public recognition should be addressed.

This Assembly therefore supports the long standing request that the Greater London Authority and organisations within the Greater London Authority family follow the example of Southwark Council and allows ‘Latin American’ to be included in the ethnicity section of the authorities’ monitoring forms.

This Assembly notes that a further request of the Latin American community is for Portuguese to be included on London Underground ticket machines and urges the Mayor as chair of transport for London to ensure that this reasonable request is fully considered as part of the £20 million investment taking place in the upgrading of ticket machines.
