Boris’s time in
Londoners put Uxbridge & South Ruislip MP and London Mayor Boris Johnson in the spotlight as a People’s Question TIme in Hillingdon on November 26. went along
DURING a lively and passionate London Assembly People’s Question Time at the Beck Theatre, Hayes, nearly 600 attendees quizzed Mayor Boris Johnson and London Assembly members on a range of topics.
These included business, crime, energy, housing, the well being of the male population, and transport.
We even learned that Boris had once spent a night sleeping rough in the capital.
People’s Question Time, organised by the London Assembly, takes place just twice a year and provides an opportunity for Londoners to hold the Assembly and Mayor to account.
The event was chaired by Dr Onkar Sahota AM, the London Assembly Member for Ealing and Hillingdon.
The number one topic during the two hour event was housing. Boris said the solution to the affordable housing crisis lay in building more homes on the 400,000 square feet of Brownfield sites across the capital.
Addressing the number of homeless people sleeping rough he spoke of the ‘No Second Night Out’ scheme whereby staff walk the streets providing advice to the homeless about how they can secure themselves accommodation.
As the name suggests, if the advice is followed, nobody should be spending more than one night homeless.
Boris admitted that on average there are around 300 people sleeping rough
