Stephen has welcomed three policy papers drawn up by London Assembly member Unmesh Desai.
The first and second build on Unmesh’s work as Deputy Chair of the London Assembly Police and Crime Committee. His pledges in “Policing London” highlight his work with the Mayor to tackle the forms of crime which are particularly damaging to our community. His “Victims of Crime” document is about giving everyone the confidence to report offences.
The third draws attention to the eastwards shift of London’s economic centre of gravity. The London Olympics seven years ago sealed the shift. There will be many more opportunities in East London in the future than there were in the past, largely thanks to Labour successes in national, regional and local Government. Unmesh’s paper celebrates the change, and looks at how we can make the most of it for people living in our area.
