Thank you, Chair. Good afternoon, Commissioner. Good afternoon, Mayor.
Commissioner, can I just talk to you about police response times? I can see from the tables which MOPAC has provided to us that the emergency response times of the police across London for the past two years have slipped in the wrong direction, particularly for Category S, which is the ‘respond in one hour’, and Category E, which is the ‘respond to within 48 hours’. Second and third priority response times have gotten worse. I notice this particularly because it has affected my own borough; Southwark have lost 5% of their Category E response time and I think London wide it has slipped from 93% to 76%. There are some big slippages on this. Why do you think this is happening and is there anything you can do to remedy this?
