The Government’s desperate attempts to prevent their air quality plan being published before the election shows that they have not woken up to the scale of the air quality crisis. By dragging their feet and then filleting the plan of any meaningful proposals, they have put politics ahead of people’s health.

The new Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, is consulting on a new policing plan for London. The document - A Safer City For All Londoners - sets out his priorities. These include:

  • Keeping children and young people safe
  • Tackling violence against women and girls
  • Standing together against hatred and intolerance
  • A better criminal justice service
  • A better police service

Unlike the one size fits all, London-wide targets imposed by Boris, the new plan allows for priorities to be set at a local level. By working closely with local people and community organisations we can achieve more for our residents at a time when all our services face significant budget cuts. 

The focus on youth violence is welcome. We are working hard with a range of local community groups to tackle the rise in knife crime in our borough and we welcome the intention to develop a Knife Crime Strategy. We also support the approach to tackling violence against women and girls which reflects the high priority we have given the issue in Lambeth. 

We think that this is the right plan for London and will help make our city safer and our policing fairer.

Lambeth's response to the consultation was co-signed by the borough's 3 MPs, Assembly Member and key local stakeholders. You can read it below.
