Today’s resignation of Mayoral advisor Ian Clement won’t prevent an investigation into the misuse of his card, a senior London Assembly Member has said.
Jennette Arnold AM, Chair of the London Assembly Business Management and Administration Committee (BMAC) says the departure of Johnson’s aide “cannot be considered an end to the matter”.
“Serious questions remain about how long the misuse of the card continued, apparently undetected, and the type of expenditure that was charged to the GLA without being repaid. These issues will be pursued by Assembly Members at Wednesday’s meeting of BMAC, where we will question the Mayor’s Chief of Staff Sir Simon Milton and GLA Executive Director of Resources Martin Clarke.”
The committee will meet at 10am on Wednesday, 24 June at City Hall.
