Policing and homes on Tory mayoral candidate Susan Hall’s agenda

THE Tory candidate for mayor of London Susan Hall said policing and homes will be her main agenda as she prepares to take on Labour mayor Sadiq Khan at the election in May 2024.
She told Conservative activists at the Battle of Britain Bunker, in Uxbridge, “We have to show we share the values of everyday Londoners. Working hard to provide for your family, being honest about who you are and what you believe, acting selflessly in the interests of others.”
She added, “Londoners deserve a lot better than they’ve got at the moment. Sadiq Khan has been in charge now for seven years. He has let Londoners down very, very badly.”
Hall said her “passion is policing”. She has pledged to invest £200 million in the Met Police “to tackle the scourge of knives, modernise the police to use the latest artificial intelligence and facial recognition technology, and work to dismantle the gangs and organised crime networks that ruin so many lives”.
She added she will on “day one” scrap Khan’s “disastrous” plan to expand the ultra low emission zone (Ulez), meaning that outer London would not be covered by it.
Hall has also pledged to “build a lot more homes in the right places”. She said she would move away from high-rise tower blocks to “high density, low rise” family homes, promising residents their “own front door and patch of garden, even if it is just a postage stamp”.
