Answered By: 
The Mayor

I have been working with the Ministry of Defence (MoD) to sell these water cannon and my Office for Policing and Crime are in the process of formulating next steps.

By selling the water cannon, we will save Londoners almost £175,000 over the next eight years and the savings and any proceeds will be channelled back into communities and youth projects to tackle crime.
