Councils still waiting for post-riot funding
London councils are still waiting for post-riots regeneration funding promised to them by City Hall, BBC London research has found.
After disturbances in Tottenham last summer spread throughout the capital, London Mayor Boris Johnson and Communities Secretary Eric Pickles promised £70m from the Mayor’s Regeneration Fund to a number of authorities in the capital.
However, the investigation has discovered that funding has yet to be given to councils.
When are the rioters going to hand it over, or carry out the work free gratis, to the taxpayer? There were hundreds caught & convicted, let them sort it out. They did it! Why should the innocent, hard working, taxpayer pay for these thugs misdeeds?J Smith, Added: Wednesday, 8 August 2012 07:22 PM
