Sadiq Khan has received the first formal summons for a sitting Mayor by the London Assembly Police and Crime Committee. He is required to answer questions about the Winsor report, which was commissioned to comment on the circumstances around Dame Cressida Dick's departure.
The committee voted to summons Sadiq Khan to attend the committee meeting on 16 November 2022 at 10am. The motion used the London Assembly Police and Crime Committee's unique power to summons the Mayor and means that Sadiq Khan is legally required to attend.
The Winsor report highlighted significant concerns regarding the Mayor's behaviour towards Dame Cressida Dick during the time leading up to her resignation. The Police and Crime Committee, in passing this motion, have compelled Sadiq Khan to be held to account for his behaviour.
