Unmesh Desai AM: Mr Mayor, at this moment in time we in the Labour Group remain sceptical about the way plans for borough mergers are progressing. Evidence from the pilots - certainly the ones in Havering, Barking and Dagenham, and Redbridge - suggests that things are not well. I know that the Leader of Barking and Dagenham has been in correspondence with you. Target response times have been met only 52% of the time in Barking and Dagenham. Clearly, this is not acceptable and I think you acknowledge that. You have said in the past - and I quote - “We will not proceed with Basic Command Units if problems identified have not been addressed”. Is this still the case and are mergers off the agenda for the time being?
