I maintain that these water cannon should never have been purchased, were a waste of money and I am clear that we should sell them and reinvest the money for the people of London.

MOPAC and MPS Officers are working together to ensure these are sold as soon as possible, and I look forward to updating the Assembly on this in the near future.
