A great start to the London election campaign

Caroline joined Southwark Lib Dems in Bermondsey, talking to voters and delivering Luisa Porritt and the London Liberal Democrats' message for this election: Let's Take London Forward!

An investigation is needed into Pride bullying and racism allegations

Caroline has written to the Mayor of London expressing her serious concern over bullying and racism allegations at Pride in London.

Caroline said:

Pride is an essential cultural celebration for LGBTQ+ Londoners, promoting tolerance, equality & pushing for more progress.

An investigation must take place into what's been going on.

Questions have to be asked as to why so many crimes go completely uninvestigated

Liberal Democrat London Assembly Member Caroline Pidgeon has uncovered the disappointing fact that nearly 250,000 crimes reported to the Metropolitan Police last year were abandoned within 24 hours, without being investigated at all.

Caroline has written to Met Commissioner Dame Cressida Dick to ask for an explanation for the stark difference between the figures for 2020 compared to 2019.

Caroline said:

End the delay in publishing police station plans

Caroline Pidgeon has written to the Deputy Mayor for Policing and Crime, asking when she will publish the police estate plan, including important information on the future of vital police stations and front counters across London.

Police front counters have been massively reduced under this Mayor and the previous Mayor. Londoners need certainty on their remaining stations and front counters, especially given a continued fall in confidence in the police in London.

There must be no further delays in publishing this information.
