Green Party candidate for Mayor of London Jenny Jones has launched her full manifesto for the next term at City Hall.
Jones was joined for the launch by the party’s London Assembly candidates including Darren Johnson and Noel Lynch.
The party is hoping to increase the number of seats it currently holds on the Assembly.
Pledges include putting more officers on the beat and “stopping the cuts to back office staff”, creating a Fair Pay Mark for companies who reduce pay inequality and ensuring public transport is always cheaper than driving and cleaning up London’s polluted air.
Previously announced policies include measures to increase accessibility of public transport and the replacement of the congestion charge with a new road pricing scheme.
Jones told journalists: “London needs a strong Green voice. We must cut our carbon emissions and be more responsible global citizens. We must protect green spaces, create jobs and look for creative solutions to the massive shortage of affordable housing.
“By voting to elect more Green Assembly Members under the proportional system, Londoners can really make the difference this year.”
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.
