Answer for Chairing the MPA

Answered By: 
The Mayor

I was elected on a mandate to make London safer and it remains my top priority. That was why, at the first opportunity, I made myself chairman of the Metropolitan Police Authority. I spend as much time as is necessary chairing the MPA to make ensure the Metropolitan Police is democratically accountable to Londoners and continues to work to make London a safer place, but I never stop thinking about how to reduce crime.
