Question

Now what I meant, Chairman, what I think concerns Londoners, is there are three crimes growing through the roof and the leaders of the Labour group here and Liberal group sit on the MPA in significant positions, and seems to have done very little to address those real issues. And that's what Londoners are concerned about, not your relationship in terms of that, and you've clearly spelt out time and time again, and today again that you didn't discuss with Lord Tope anything to do with that initiative, you didn't discuss the RAF the initiative in detail. That's what you said.

No, I didn't say that today, you quoted that today, and that's an accurate statement of what I said on the previous occasion. What I said today is that I have not discussed the quality of this particular paper, which has only recently been received for a meeting tomorrow. So I haven't, as it happened, bumped into Graham in relation to that. I think and he has nodded to me that he shares my view that this is a flimsy paper. Now that is not suggesting that we have inadequate consultations on matters concerning the overall budget of the Authority, or indeed on the direction of some of these issues.
