Answered By: 
The Mayor

I take my obligations to make London as accessible as possible very seriously, and I ensure that dialogue is maintained with disabled Londoners on important strategic issues. There are too many measures to detail in my answer, so I invite you to review my strategies for London including my Transport Strategy, which outlines my commitment to providing a more accessible transport system, Housing Strategy, which seeks to enhance disabled peoples housing choices and meet their needs, London Plan, which seeks to minimise the barriers experienced by disabled people in the built environment, and my Hate Crime Reduction Strategy, which outlines my vision of making London one of the safest global cities in the world.
