Question

The Commissioner told the Assembly on June 3rd 2015 that weapon sweep information is held at Borough level.  I sent an FOI to the boroughs asking for their weapons sweep information and was told it was too difficult to collate.  If this is being used as a tool to combat knife and gun crime across London shouldn't better records be kept to monitor if it is successful? Will you instruct the Met to keep full records?
