Jennette Arnold OBE AM (Chair): Thank you for much in that update, Mr Mayor. I am just going to see if there are any responses from Members who put in a matter for you and I will then go on to picking up the announcement of the retirement of the Fire Commissioner.
Mr Mayor, can I just come back to you about my update? I want to thank you for meeting the elected councillors yesterday from a group of about 10 schools representing 4,200 children. They had done some work in preparation to coming here to City Hall to see us. They did a word cloud and the biggest space taken out by that word cloud was about crime, feeling unsafe and wanting to be able to walk on their streets.
Will you really hear what I am saying and will you look to see if there is any more that you can do about reassurance, particularly in those areas where we have seen such a lot of crisis at the moment? There is no reply. I just wanted to forward that on to you because we sometimes miss the need to do more about reassuring our residents and reminding them that London is a safe city, their city, and they really cannot give up the streets to criminals. I hope you have taken that on board.
Can I call Caroline Russell AM? Do you want to come back to anything you have just heard?
Caroline Russell AM: No.
Jennette Arnold OBE AM (Chair): No, you do not. I know Assembly Member Devenish does.
Tony Devenish AM: Thank you, Chair. Good morning, Mr Mayor. On Hammersmith Bridge, I appreciate there is lots of work going on, but for two and a half months it has been shut. You have basically said this morning that it will be four months before we have a way forward. This is a really key bridge. Can we try to bring that date forward so that we will be able to know what needs to be done? This is the number-one issue for my residents.
