I note the article in The Guardian on 16 October 2017, which stated: 'The Metropolitan Police are to stop investigating many lower level crimes as a result of spending cuts, a senior police officer has said. On Monday, it was reported that the UK's largest force would no longer look into many reports of crimes, including burglaries, thefts and assaults, where there was judged to be little prospect of identifying a suspect. The plan has been denounced as a "green light to thieve" but the Metropolitan police said it needed to balance the books.' However, on 9 October, I saw a Metropolitan Police Tweet which stated: 'We have 900+ specialist officers across London dedicated to investigating all hate crime.' However, I am not convinced that London's law-abiding populace would endorse the Metropolitan Police's prioritisation of hate crime over burglary, theft and assault. Will the Mayor re-examine the Met's priorities to ensure that it makes the best use of all the resources at its disposal to tackle crime?
