I have heard from a number of constituents about the importance of Uxbridge police station. As a local resident myself, I know how vital it is that police continue to have a presence in Hillingdon, reassuring constituents that they are being kept safe. The police station only remains open thanks to the excellent work of local councillors who have fought Sadiq Khan’s plans to close it.
After a period of sustained investment by the Government, it is a tragedy that the mayor continues his campaign to shut the police station. I am grateful for the work of Hillingdon council who continue to fight the decision, but today I had the opportunity to ask the Prime Minister about his position on the matter.
I was delighted to learn that the Prime Minister is supportive of this campaign, among other campaigns that we are leading locally. Whether it is the police station, construction of Hillingdon Hospital or opposition to Sadiq Khan’s ULEZ expansion, Hillingdon councillors continue to fight for local residents.
