Mayor Jules Pipe, Chair of London Councils, speaking on the election of the new Mayor of London, says:
“On behalf of London’s boroughs I would like to congratulate Sadiq Khan on his election as Mayor of this great city.”
“We look forward to working with Sadiq to secure for London government the greater influence over local public services that we need to underpin and sustain our capital and its future. Together, we are vital players in creating the conditions to manage London’s growth, boost housing supply, help get people into sustained employment and drive the health and security of London’s communities”
“The scale of the public financing challenge we all face over the next four years and beyond makes our work with the new Mayor to integrate public service ever more critical”.
“We look forward to getting on with that job”.
