News from Len Duvall OBE: Questions over Mayor’s ability to deliver on Education Inquiry
Len Duvall, leader of the Labour group on the London Assembly, today questioned the Mayor of London’s ability to deliver on the recommendations from his Education Inquiry which reported this morning. Mr Duvall welcomed any proposals that will increase the aspiration and educational outcomes for London’s school children, but questioned the Mayor’s ability to deliver and the lack of any identified budget.
Leader of the Labour group on the London Assembly, Len Duvall said:
"We welcome any proposals that will increase the aspiration and educational outcomes for London’s school children. However, the Mayor’s proposals say very little about how they will be delivered or how they will be paid for. At a time of deep spending cuts I fear that yet again Boris is over-promising and will under-deliver.
"Any help that can be given to schools is welcome. However he does not get on top of the detail and has repeatedly demonstrated that he is poor on actual delivery. As we saw at Mayor’s Question Time on Wednesday he had no idea about what is going on at the Metropolitan Police or the London Fire Brigade, organisations that he is directly responsible for and has been in charge of for over four years now."
Len Duvall is the Labour London Assembly Member for Greenwich and Lewisham and is Leader of the Labour group on the Assembly.
