At last weeks MQT,l got to ask the Mayor about whether he had any budgets for the replacements public access points taking the place of the closure of Police station front counters like that in Brentford.
It was quite clear he didn’t know as the exchange above well illustrates. As he is expecting London councils like Hounslow to pick up the revenue costs of renting space for these public access points along the high street. You would think the Met would readily pick up the running costs given the residents have lost their front counters.
Not surprisingly at the end of the MQT we were so dissappointed with his responses to our numerous questions we passed a motion saying his answers were inaccurate, evasive and ill-informed.
