Mayor of London Ken Livingstone will face Assembly Members today at the regular Mayor’s Question Time session.
Assembly Members give advance notice of their questions which are then asked in a predetermined order.
Among the questions listed for today Conservative AM Bob Blackman will ask whether the Mayor backs “the possible use of public funds to support investment in West End Theatres, if venues came forward on a case by case basis with an acceptable business plan to provide matching funding.”
Mr Livingstone will also be questioned on the impact of rising oil prices on London’s economic and social development by Green Party AM Jenny Jones and on the rise in alcohol-related crime in London by LibDem AM Lord Tope.
One London’s Peter Hulme Cross will ask the Mayor how he intends to dispose of the spoil generated by the tunnelling for Crossrail which, if sent to landfil, would cost £250 per tonne under European Union legislation.
Questions which aren’t asked during the meeting are given a written response.
The meeting will take place at 10am on Wednesday, 12 December 2007 in the Chamber at City Hall, The Queen’s Walk, London SE1 2AA.
It will also be webcast live at: www.london.gov.uk
