Following the Government's announcement that the Local and Mayoral Elections will be delayed, Lib Dem Mayoral Candidate Siobhan Benita has issued the following statement:
"These are unprecedented times which require unprecedented action. Nobody would have wished the postponement of these elections in these circumstances.
"I respect the Government's decision to delay and I will continue to follow the expert advice as the situation progresses.
"I have already offered my personal and party support to Sadiq over the coming months. Supporting the most vulnerable during this period is crucial and I would encourage Londoners that are able to help to look out for their friends, family and neighbours at this time."
