The Mayor


Mr Mayor, thank you. I am very pleased to hear your comments in answer to James and it will show well for colleagues in outer London that there is some consideration around it. I know it is not completely in your gift so I fully understand all those pieces but I would urge you to ensure that you do follow this through to make sure it does happen. I worry about - and my question to you is - what sort of signal does it send to those outer London boroughs who are footing the same bill towards policing that may feel that they are being under represented at the top table?

I understand completely. As I said to James, the membership of the Board is by no means set in stone. I think it is a very good innovation, the LCBR and it is what London needs. We need a forum where the police, councils, social services and everybody can discuss the issues like gang crime or knife crime that we all need to consider together, but the membership we can still refine.
