Question

Following the Metropolitan Police Services' very successful knife amnesty, which saw over 10,000 weapons removed from the streets, would the Mayor join me in congratulating the MPS on the steps it has taken to link this excellent crime prevention work with the capital's wider environmental agenda by working with the construction industry to recycle the knives, thus taking them off the streets forever
