David Lammy, Member of Parliament for Tottenham and a 2016 Labour London Mayoral candidate, outlined his vision for London’s future in a speech at the LSE on 24 March.
Discussing the opportunities and challenges that exist in London as a globally significant city which remains unequal and divided, Mr Lammy MP set out plans for how to ensure all Londoners benefit from the capital’s energy and dynamism.
