Sadiq’s Deputy Mayors Must Work Together to Tackle London’s Challenges

Responding to news that Sadiq Khan has appointed his Deputy Mayors, Ben Rogers, Director of Centre for London said:

 “Sadiq Khan has made an impressive start to his mayoralty, taking his time to appoint his top team and appointing 4 Deputy Mayors (3 of them women) who know their way around London government.

“Now Sadiq must lead his team to deliver on his manifesto promises and address London’s growing challenges.

The new appointees will be eager to get to work but they must be deliberative and be strategic. London’s problems – housing, transport, economic development, social inclusion, sustainability – are all closely connected and need joined up working at every level of London government.”
