Members of the London Assembly have
expressed their outrage at last Thursday’s bomb attacks in the capital and sent
out a strongly worded message renewing their commitment to the freedom and
diversity of London’s communities.
An urgent motion condemning the bombings
and thanking the emergency and medical services for their “magnificent response”
to the crisis and Transport for London for its success in restoring ‘close to
normal’ public transport, will be tabled at Wednesday’s full plenary meeting of
the London Assembly.
The full wording of the motion reads:
“The London Assembly wishes to record on
behalf of Londoners its outrage at the attacks on London on 7th July,
together with Londoners’ clear determination that terrorists will never succeed
in affecting our democratic way of life nor undermining Londoners’ tolerance and
how we value the diversity of London’s communities.
We extend out sincere condolences to the
families and friends of those murdered, and our sympathies and good wishes to
We express our very real thanks to the
emergency services – the Police, Ambulance Service and Fire Service – together
with the medical services for their magnificent and reassuring response, and
Transport for London for ensuring that so much of London’s transport so quickly
operated so close to normal.”
