Boris Johnson has today launched his full manifesto for a second term at City Hall.
Policies include an additional 1,000 police officers on the beat, cutting City Hall’s share of the council tax by 10% and reducing tube delays by 30 per cent by 2015.
Mr Johnson has also promised to to give Special Constables a 50 per cent rebate on the Mayor’s share of council tax.
His manifesto says this would be worth “over £600 over the lifetime of my next Mayoral term.”
In a statement Mr Johnson said: “This election comes when we have been going through the toughest times that anyone can remember.
‘The big question is therefore blindingly simple. It is about who has the best plan for the jobs and growth that will help bring prosperity to all. It is about who will deliver the investment – from central government – that will take London forward. It is about who you can trust to spend that money wisely – and who will be honest with you about where the money is coming from, and how it is spent.’
“I believe my 9 point plan is right for the future of the greatest city on earth.’
Candidates for Mayor include Jenny Jones (Green party), Ken Livingstone (Labour), Lawrence Webb (UKIP) Boris Johnson (Conservative) and Brian Paddick (Liberal Democrat). A full list of candidates can be found here.
