Question

What discussions have you had with City of London on their proposals to have enhanced security? I understand a new scheme will be subject to a consultation but, if approved, the measures would be fully implemented by 2022. Do you support this?

A range of measures to improve security right across London were considered and recommended by Lord Harris in his review of London's Preparedness to Respond to a Major Terrorist Attack, which I commissioned last year. This work included briefing directly provided by the City of London Police, which is reflected in his review.

MOPAC will monitor the City of London Police plans with interest to ensure that any lessons that can be learnt from this process are.
