Lambeth Labour candidates were out at schools across Lambeth this morning (20th April), speaking to local parents about our campaign against Tory cuts to local schools and about our commitment to tacking action to clean up Lambeth's air.
Many parents are deeply worried about the Conservative cuts that are threatening the success of our local schools. Each Lambeth primary and secondary school faces cuts of £400 per pupil.
Lambeth Conservatives back these cuts and criticised parents campaigning against them.
Only Labour will stand up for Lambeth schools and for our public services. Sign our petition and find out more: bit.ly/lambethsos
Under Labour, Lambeth has led the way on tackling air pollution. We successfully lobbied for a ‘clean bus corridor’ through Brixton and Streatham, which could cut emissions by an estimated 84%.
If re-elected on 3rd May we will:
- Provide funding for clean air green screens at every school on a main road
- Plant 1,000 more trees
- Double the number of cycle hangar spaces
- Campaign for the Mayor’s new low emission zone to include the entire borough
