Greenwich and Lewisham’s current Labour Party assembly member Len Duvall spoke to EastLondonLines about his campaign.
• Transport – reduce “unnecessary” fare increases
• Increase police numbers; serious youth violence is on the rise, which needs to be challenged
• Infrastructure projects – upgrade river-crossings to improve access between North and South London
• Environment – clean air, advice to help people reduce their fuel bills and recycle, new recycling policies
• Housing – decent landlords and fairer rents; more houses for rent
Duvall spoke about the Occupy movement and the recent occupation of a number of buildings by Lewisham People Before Profit.
The Labour candidate also told us why he should return for a fourth term as Assembly member for Greenwich and Lewisham.
A councillor for Greenwich from 1990 to 2001, Duvall has retained his seat in the assembly since he was first elected in 2000.
