Remember: wearing a face mask is compulsory on @TfL services. COVID is still a threat. We can’t risk another deadly wave of infections this winter, which is why I’m calling on the Govt to make face masks on public transport mandatory across the country.
Time is running out to act on the twin dangers of air pollution and the climate emergency. It will take action from all of us一businesses, local and world leaders, and individuals​​一to protect our world for future generations. And we must start now.
A flexible migration system will be crucial to ensuring London’s competitiveness and ongoing success.
The Government should introduce a “Covid Recovery Visa” to help attract international workers to key roles, as well as devolving powers for London to create a regional shortage occupation list to make it easier to bring in staff in the areas where there is greatest need.
The Govt’s move to tackle the critical HGV driver shortage is welcome. It’s essential that it does all it can to ensure that all sectors—from hospitality to construction to culture—are able to hire the staff they need to get back on their feet and aid the UK's economic recovery.

London deeply cares about diversity, inclusivity and equality, and we’re taking world-leading action to tackle the climate emergency. If cities around the world act now and take bold action together, we can ensure a fairer, greener, and more prosperous future for all.…
Violence against women and girls is an epidemic. To tackle it, we must make sure misogyny becomes a hate crime and harassment of women in a public space a criminal offence. I'll continue to do everything I can to push the Government to make these…
Fantastic that London is one of the host cities for Global Citizen Live today一a worldwide festival highlighting the most critical challenges we face, including climate change, equality and COVID-19. Watch from 5:30pm BST on @BBCOne.
Today marks one year since Sergeant Matt Ratana was tragically killed while on duty. As we celebrate the life of an exemplary police officer and a shining example of the very best of London, please join me and @metpoliceuk at 11am in a minute's silence in his memory.
🔊@ACLouisaRolfee: We're working tirelessly to secure justice for Sabina's family. Please share appeals far and wide. We're determined that women should go about their lives feeling safe, we'll pursue offenders and reduce the tolerance for violence against women. #SabinaNessaad

What happened to Sabina is every parent’s nightmare and every woman’s worst fear. Her death is a tragedy and I stand with the community in Kidbrooke and Londoners across our city, united in grief and united in our determination that justice is done.
Sabina’s family, friends and colleagues have shared powerful tributes to her life. It’s clear that she was a bright, kind and caring young woman, who had a powerful impact on those around her.
The vigil for Sabina Nessa tonight is an important and emotional moment for the whole community to come together and remember Sabina’s life, and to stand in solidarity with her family and loved ones during this time of unimaginable grief.
Wearing a face covering is a requirement on all @TfL services, but we need consistency across the entire country. I’m calling on the Government to make it a national requirement to help stop the spread of COVID-19 this winter. 📺 @BBCLondonNewssG
Camden scoots in as the 10th London borough to join the capital’s rental e-scooter trial 👏 More than 165,000 trips have already been made, and under vigorous safety standards, with the trial helping to determine the role of e-scooters in our city’s green & sustainable future.
Fantastic meeting with Commissioner @McGuinnessEU and Ambassador @ValedeAlmeidaEU earlier to discuss City Hall’s work supporting EU Londoners and our shared goal of tackling the climate emergency.
This summer, Londoners experienced the devastating impact that extreme weather can have on our roads and transport network. As shown by our climate mapping in partnership with @BloombergAssoc, climate catastrophes will continue to happen if we don't do more to protect our planet.
Very good meeting with @MayorofLondon on the situation of EU citizens in London and the vital role of cities in tackling the climate challenge.

Women and girls deserve to live a life free from fear or threat of attack at the hands of men. Misogyny needs to be a hate crime. Harassing women needs to be a criminal offence. Boys need to be educated from a young age to treat women & girls with respect. We need change.

World leaders must ‘walk the walk’ at COP26 to prevent climate disaster, London mayor says
Retweeted by Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan
I’m urging the UK Government—and governments around the world—to match London’s ambition to avert a climate catastrophe. Our city can’t do this alone. We need backing at @COP26 in 38 day's time, and bold action delivered nationally and internationally.
Mayor calls for Universal Credit and Working Tax credits uplift to be extended -…
Retweeted by Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan
Ending the Universal Credit and Working Tax Credits uplift is a disaster for London’s poorest families. New research confirms that it would put 130,000 more Londoners into poverty, hitting the most disadvantaged groups most. With fuel bills rising too, the Govt must reconsider.
The Government has a chance to keep 70,000 children out of poverty, and that’s just in London. It must take it.
The @metpoliceuk need help identifying this man in connection with the murder of Sabina Nessa.👇🏾 Please…Tm
I welcome the #KerslakeCommission report findings and will continue to do everything in my power to help end rough sleeping in our city. The pioneering ‘Everyone In’ approach adopted during the pandemic, saved hundreds of lives and is a roadmap for the Govt to now follow.…
No child should grow up in our city breathing toxic air. That's why we’re taking action now by expanding the world’s first Ultra Low Emission Zone—aiming to reduce deadly pollution while also reducing carbon emissions. 📺@BBCLondonNewssI
The fmr Housing Secretary said no one should lose their home because of Covid, yet families across the country are being evicted due to rent arrears caused by loss of income during the pandemic. Ministers must do far, far more to help people with debt.…

Without radical climate action, London could see rising temperatures, flooding, and unhealthy levels of air pollution. To kickstart action, we’re working with @MayorofLondon to launch #LiveBreatheLDN, a campaign to preserve the city’s sustainable future:

Today marks the 2000th day of Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe’s wrongful imprisonment in Iran. As always, London stands in solidarity with her & her family, and I urge the Government to do all it can to help her return home—along with all British prisoners being wrongly held in Iran.

The climate crisis and air pollution are the biggest threats our world faces. We all know the action we need to take. It’s not enough to talk the talk anymore. We must walk the walk.

It was a huge privilege to join @MayorofLondon today on @cleanairfund’s 2nd birthday, visiting @Prior_Weston and having the opportunity to introduce @SadiqKhan’s important speech urging climate action before we sleepwalk into climate catastrophe 🌍…AE

Time is running out on the climate emergency. Speaking to activists, media and partners, today I launched a city-wide campaign to inspire all Londoners–individuals, businesses and communities–to take action to tackle the most urgent issue facing our planet.
I’ve committed to making London a zero-carbon city by 2030, and we’re delivering a climate action plan compatible with the highest ambition of the Paris Agreement. I also want London to be a zero-pollution city so that no child has to grow up in our city breathing toxic air.
NEW: This map shows London’s exposure and vulnerability to climate risks such as flooding and overheating. We either take bold action now or face the consequences, with catastrophic impacts on our environment, our air, and the climate.
This is my warning to the Government: If you want to achieve your own net zero target, you must devolve powers and long-term funds to London and other regions who will be delivering the action on the ground.…
In London you're free to be who you want to be, and love who you want to love. That includes bisexual Londoners, who often face unique discrimination and stigma. On #BiVisibilityDay & every day, let's celebrate Bi identities in all their diversity.
When I first became Mayor, @Prior_Weston was one of London’s schools with the worst polluted air. With support from City Hall, this is no longer the case. Thanks to the ULEZ, we’ve already halved air pollution in central London. I’ll keep fighting to make our air safer.
Lovely to see the art installation ⁦@Prior_Weston⁩ with ⁦@SadiqKhan⁩ ⁦@sabrodrigues61⁩ highlighting in we have a choice: clean air and clean energy or pollution and ill health. Tackling the #climateemergency helps us all.

London, and the world, is at a crossroads. We either take the path of inaction, and sleepwalk into a climate catastrophe. Or we take the path of immediate, impactful change, and create a greener, healthier planet fit for future generations. We must choose the second path.
London already faces the consequences of air pollution and the climate crisis—including soaring temperatures and flash flooding. Speaking to @BloombergTV I laid out the catastrophic disasters that lie ahead for our city & country unless we take bold action now to change course.
My thoughts and prayers are with Sabina Nessa’s family, friends and the whole community who are devastated by her death. Women and girls in London deserve to feel safe at all times, in every part of our city and as Mayor, I remain committed to making our city safer for them.
We are already seeing the catastrophic impacts of air pollution and climate change in our capital and our country. That’s why I’m calling on the Government, businesses, communities and individual Londoners to join me in doing what they can to tackle these urgent crises. @GMB
