Mayor of London Ken Livingstone today said he looked forward to working with Gordon Brown to continue to deliver improvements for Londoners, after Mr Brown became Britain’s new Prime Minister.
Ken Livingstone said:
‘As Chancellor Gordon Brown played a decisive role in restarting public investment in London after decades of neglect, and London has benefited greatly from the six thousand additional police officers, the two million extra bus journeys a day, and the beginning of the reconstruction of the transport system that has resulted.
Without the investment we have seen London would not be able to sustain the huge success it is currently enjoying, and I am sure that as Prime Minister Gordon Brown will develop this further. I particularly look forward to working with Gordon Brown and his government on the key projects for London of the Olympics, more affordable housing and Crossrail”
