Tory Mayoral candidate Susan Hall: “City Hall staff should never be politicised by the Mayor’s office. I will ensure that political neutrality rules are respected under my Mayoralty.”
Tory MP Ben Bradley said that when he became the Leader of Nottinghamshire County Council, he asked staff to remove flags,and pronouns from their email signatures.
But he added: “That’s what you get with Labour leadership. Ideology over delivery. Divisive campaigns and identity prioritised above delivering services. Every time.”
A source close to Mr Khan said: “At City Hall we believe that the lives of black Londoners matter. It’s frankly shocking that Susan Hall seems to think otherwise.”
A spokesperson for the Mayor said: “The Mayor has declared City Hall a committedly anti-racist organisation. The email signature does not endorse any specific organisation but makes clear that the GLA stands against racism.”
