London Assembly MQT, May 2016

Cycling, terrorism, burkini, resignation and clean taxi questions

13 September 2016

After more than 100 days in office, the London Assembly[1] holds its first Mayor’s Question Time since summer tomorrow.

Assembly Members will ask Mayor of London Sadiq Khan questions about‎ the following topics and more:
 

  • The cycling budget in Transport for London's next business plan
  • Keeping Londoners safe from the threat of terrorism
  • Burkinis
  • Deputy Assistant Police Commissioner resignation
  • Cleaner, greener taxis ahead of the introduction of the Ultra Low Emission Zone

The Assembly questions the Mayor, in public, ten times a year at Mayor’s Question Time (MQT) meetings, as part of its role of holding him to account[2].

The Assembly acts as a check and balance on the activities of the Mayor.

The meeting will take place on Wednesday, 14 September from 10:00am in The Chamber at City Hall (The Queen’s Walk, London SE1).

Media and members of the public are invited to attend – numbers may be limited.

The meeting can also be viewed via webcast.
