Mayor of London announces cuts to police and transport

The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, has today outlined potential cuts of almost £110m in policing and £290 million in transport. Barnet is already short-changed by the way the Mayor allocates police budgets in London, and this will only make things worse.

This is at a time when the Mayor has presided over mismanagement of the Transport for London budget and increased his PR budget by 26%. 

His priorities are wrong and ordinary Londoners should not be made to suffer. The Mayor should be cutting press officers not police officers. 

I will be writing to Mayor Khan to ensure he is aware of my views.
