London’s Conservative Mayor, Boris Johnson, is set to slash local police across the capital, according to new figures that I have obtained.
London’s Conservatives wants to cut the Metropolitan Police budget by a massive £48 million.
Despite City Hall claims this would not affect frontline officers, the minutes of official meetings show Police Safer Neighbourhood Teams could lose at least 100 officers. Deputy Met Commissioner, Tim Godwin, has refused to rule out more cuts.
[img_assist|nid=114|title=|desc=Cllrs Rolson Davis and Vicki Harris join me by the Tolworth Roundabout|link=none|align=right|width=270|height=181]The Department for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) recently closed its air quality monitoring site in Tolworth by the A3.
Air quality by the A3 has been poor for some time, so it is a nonsense for the Government to shut this monitoring site down.
Poor air quality hits people's health, especially young children and the elderly, and diseases like asthma cost the NHS billions.
With new stricter legal limits on air pollution in force from this June, we need to make sure they are enforced, and that means we need these measurements to check.
