Susan Hall: Tory London Mayor candidate hits out at false promises as she makes £200m police funding pledge

Tory London Mayor candidate Susan Hall has hit out at those in power making “false promises” as she announced a £200m police funding pledge.

Ms Hall appeared on LBC radio on Monday (22 January) and told presenter Nick Ferrari it was “wrong to make promises on the radio without knowing how to fund them”, before vowing to deliver more police officers.

Ms Hall said: “I won’t make promises on the radio unless I know they are funded.

“You get so many different people on the radio promising everything. You should not promise anything unless you know where the money is coming from.”
