Plenary: Raising the Capital under the spotlight

This morning, the full London Assembly will look at the London Finance Commission’s recent report Raising the Capital, which reviewed tax and public spending arrangements for London. Chaired by preeminent London professor Tony Travers, the Commission’s findings call for greater devolution of taxation and what the GLA does with its money.

You can watch the Assembly discuss the report live from 10am here.

Following the main part of the Plenary, the Assembly will consider motions on issue such as fire safety and saving our Post Offices. I will be speaking in favour of one calling on the Mayor to lobby Government to reverse the new office-to-residential change of use policy. As a fierce opponent of this reckless policy, I hope my colleagues will joining me in asking Boris to stand up for London.
