The ninety minute confirmation hearing proved positive for the former leader of Hammersmith & Fulham Council, confirming his apointment as Deputy Mayor for Policing and Crime.
Chair of the Police and Crime Committee Joanne McCartney AM said: “The Committee was impressed with Stephen Greenhalgh’s honesty and openness in answering our questions today.

“We heard a number of promises today about how Stephen Greenhalgh plans to operate the Mayor’s Office for Policing and Crime in an open and transparent fashion taking account of the needs and expectations of all Londoners. The London Assembly Police and Crime Committee will play its full role in ensuring those promises are kept and that those fine words are backed up by effective action.
“As Deputy Mayor for Policing and Crime Stephen Greenhalgh has the opportunity to make a significant impact on improving the safety and security of our capital city, the committee wishes him every success in achieving that goal.”
