Answered By: 
The Mayor

It is the responsibility of London boroughs to ensure that their environmental health responsibilities are carried out effectively.

I successfully lobbied central government to provide additional funding to those boroughs who are worst affected by criminal landlords and beds in sheds. I am also working with London local authorities to share information about ways to successfully fund and carry out PRS enforcement.
