Andrew Boff on the migrant crisis: "People are dying... now is when we need the response"

London Assembly Member Andrew Boff says London must act now in light of the migrant crisis.

This comes as Zac Goldsmith, another Conservative mayoral hopeful, said "everying has changed today" since the photo of a young boy lying face down on the beach sparked international outcry about the human cost of this conflict.

The hustings debate was chaired by the Evening Standard’s Editor, Sarah Sands, held at the Royal Geographical Society in Kensington. 

 The London Mayoral candidates that took part were; Zac Goldsmith the Conservative MP for Richmond Park, Stephen Greenhalgh the Deputy Mayor for Policing and Crime, Syed Kamall the Conservative member of the European Parliament for London, and Andrew Boff, a London Assembly Member.
