Funding must be restored to LGBT+ anti-bullying projects

Caroline Pidgeon has joined with Luisa Porritt and London Liberal Democrat council and group leads in writing to the Minister for Women and Equalities over the deeply concerning news that funding for LGBT+ anti-bullying projects has been removed.

On Anti-Bullying Week, and with homophobic abuse rising in London and across the country, this decision must be reversed!

We desperately need investment in our transport infrastructure

At the London Assembly's first ever online People's Question Time, Caroline discussed how to ensure London has world-class transport infrastructure.

We desperately need investment, particularly in our public transport and walking and cycling infrastructure. The Mayor of London must also finally cancel the £2bn polluting Silvertown Road Tunnel project under the Thames.

The Stratford-St Pancras line should be part of the zone system

Caroline Pidgeon has written to the Secretary of State for Transport asking for him to consider including the Southeastern route between Stratford International and St Pancras in the Travelcard Zoning System.

This would open up new travel routes to many in East London and reduce overcrowding, both now and as we recover from COVID-19.
