UKIP candidate Frank Maloney has launched his campaign manifesto with specific pledges on crime, youth involvement and policies for the disabled.
On crime Mr Maloney announced a target of 40,000 police officers for the capital claiming "this number of officers will give London the police coverage it needs. It will allow for more officers to patrol the streets of our capital showing a significant police presence to deter crime. Officers will be able to adequately police all parts of London not just the centre."
He also pledged to axe the capital’s 1500 Community Support Officers claiming they "are a poor substitute to proper police officers" with "no powers". Maloney says the estimated savings of £30 million would help pay for his increase in Police numbers.
On youth matters Maloney said he would end the sale of school playing fields and would "allow school playing fields to be open to children out of school hours so they have somewhere free and familiar where they can continue to play sport".
Mr Maloney also made a number of pledges to address the needs of disabled Londoners. These include fitting lifts in every main London Underground Station, more paving for blind people at road junctions and other important places and a promise to "ensure disabled children have more sporting provision".
