Jennette Arnold AM responds to Boris Johnson's potential 90% cuts to youth and education projects

Responding to reports in the Guardian today that leaked documents show Boris Johnson is considering cuts of 90% to GLA youth and education projects London Assembly Labour Group Education Spokesperson, Jennette Arnold AM said:

"The fact that Boris Johnson would even consider cuts of 90% to schemes designed to help some of London's most vulnerable young people tells you everything you need to know about his cavalier and uncaring approach to governing.

"Projects to increase apprenticeships and support for people to stay on at school may seem like optional extras to Boris Johnson but for many young people they make a world of difference, helping them to get on in an increasingly competitive jobs market.

"Boris Johnson may be focused on his next job in Parliament but he has a duty to responsibly see out his term working for all Londoners. These cuts however suggest more a policy of scorched earth, drastically cutting funding to important projects and leaving his successor to pick up the pieces."
