The Camden New Journal is reporting Camden is "a shoo- in" and "red hot favourite" to be named London Borough of Culture. Is this yet another case of the Mayor being Mayor for all Londoners so long as they vote Labour?

Can the Mayor confirm that the Met's Arts & Antiques Unit will continue to be a fully functional unit throughout his mayoralty? Will he pledge to maintain and not reduce its funding?

Will the Mayor confirm that, once the Grenfell police investigation concludes, the team members seconded from the Met's Arts & Antiques Unit will all return to tackle crime in this multi- billion pound global industry?

Is it correct that the closure of Scotland Yard's art squad is temporary; if so when will it be reinstated; and if not how will we be able to combat the often complex smugglers and dealers in looted and stolen artefacts, especially from Syria, Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan  and other parts of the middle east?

Further to Question No: 2017/3292:

How will you make a more diverse night time offering attractive if you don't find a way of dealing with the anti-social behaviour and crime that come from the alcohol led nature of the current night time economy post 23:00?

Your response being:

'Officers are drafting a response which will be send shortly.'

Will you now provide a substantive reply?

Further to Question No: 2017/3291:

Do you disagree with Westminster Council's view, that there is a distinction between an evening economy, which is about culture, entertainment and food, and the night time economy, which is more about alcohol and clubbing?

Your response being:

'Officers are drafting a response which will be sent shortly.'

Will you now provide a substantive reply?

Further to Question No: 2017/3289:

50,000 people visit Camden Town each Friday and Saturday evening. This is equivalent to the crowd at a Premier League football match. Camden Town have a dedicated Police team of 6 officers on duty as well as the usual SNT team.

Do you consider residents who live in areas that are subject to considerable night time economy activity to be adequately protected from the negative impacts?

Thank you for your answer to MQ 2017/2996. Further to that, is it possible for you to provide me with a breakdown by borough for each year since 2013 of the percentage of people who:

       Used a public library service in the past 12 months

       Visited a museum or gallery in the past 12 months

       Attended an arts event or participated in an arts activity at least three times in the past 12 months?
