The Romford MP Andrew Rosindell tackled the Prime Minister yesterday to ask for help for outer London Boroughs such as Havering that are ignored and forgotten about by the London Mayor Sadiq Khan.
During question time Mr Rosindell told Boris that Havering, has very different needs and aspirations and that it still prides itself in being part of Essex.
Mr Rosindell said:
“Whilst we need co operation on things such as transport, will he please accept that it is time for reform the way London and the wider regions are governed and to support my campaign to support borough’s like Havering to take back control from the mayor and City Hall interference and allow Havering and all outer London boroughs the freedom to make our own decisions that meet the best need for our people.”
We are one of the biggest London boroughs, but Havering does not get the same support as the many inner London boroughs receive.
In response, the Prime Minister told Mr Rosindell:
“I can understand the feeling of frustrations by the people of Havering about the current Mayor who does not understand the need of outer London Boroughs, who has not invested in outer London boroughs the way the previous mayor did and set up the outer London fund.”
