Today my first budget was passed by the London Assembly. This budget lays out my plans to ensure that all Londoners get the opportunities that our city gave to me - and to deliver on my promise to be a Mayor for all Londoners. It also includes additional funding to maintain police numbers this year. My first priority is keeping Londoners safe and that means keeping police officer numbers as...

Rough sleeping has been a growing problem in London in recent years, and I’m doing all I can to reduce the numbers of people sleeping on London’s streets. Here are six ways we are helping the capital’s rough sleepers (and ways that you can help too):

Every year in Britain 40,000 people die early as a result of air pollution, and research from London demonstrates the resulting health effects disproportionately impact the most deprived communities.

Letter to the Prime...

Read First Minister Nicola Sturgeon's comment on the Article 50 court case in full here.
Earlier this evening I gave a keynote speech in Davos as part of the World Economic Forum on the challenges Brexit poses to Britain and Europe – and why we must avoid a ‘hard Brexit’ that would damage both Britain and Europe.

When the British people voted in the referendum last June, they did not simply vote to withdraw from the European Union; they voted to change the way our country works – and the people for whom it works – forever. It was a quiet revolution by those who feel the system has been stacked against them for too long – and an instruction to this Government to seize the opportunity of building a...

On Tuesday the Scottish Government will become the first administration across the UK to publish serious proposals on how to respond to the Brexit vote.

This is an important moment for Scotland – as the disastrous economic consequences of Brexit become ever clearer, it is vital that we find a way to protect Scotland’s interests.

Earlier today I spoke at Bloomberg’s UK investment summit about my commitment to being the most pro-business mayor London has ever had - a promise I’m determined to deliver on.

This means using my position not only to help attract inward investment and to act as a voice for our city at home and abroad, but to prioritise key infrastructure, actively support growth in our most important...

Today the Chancellor delivered the Autumn Statement where he set out the Government’s latest spending plans. Since I was elected as Mayor I’ve been working hard to ensure that London gets the best possible deal from this Autumn Statement, including meeting with the Chancellor and other government ministers to lobby for more powers over housing, business growth, skills, employment and...
