Mayor ditches promise to plant two million trees by 2020

London Mayor Sadiq Khan tweeted on 30 Nov 2015 “I'll plant 2m trees in London in my first term as Mayor - focusing around our schools”

This week his deputy Mayor shocked GLA members by saying the pledge was dropped.

Tony Arbour, Conservative GLA member said “this is a staggering u-turn adding to the 7 promises already dropped by the Mayor.”

This is damaging to our London environment and undermines attempts to improve London’s air quality.
