Mayoral candidates debate at packed London Labour hustings

The campaign to select Labour’s candidate for the next Mayor of London got into top gear this week with the first London Labour hustings.

All those candidates shortlisted were in attendance and spoke in front of a packed audience of Labour Party members and supporters at the Camden Centre.

The questions were on a range of big topics including tackling the housing crisis, transport questions like HS2 and how a Labour Mayor will make London cleaner and greener.

One of the best questions came from 11 year old Summer who challenged the candidates about their plans to tackle child poverty across the city.

The evening ended with all the candidates delivering their 2 minute concluding statements outlining why they think they are best person to be Labour’s candidate for Mayor.
