Budget and Performance Committee

The Mayor oversees a total budget of £17 billion.

Two London Assembly Budget Committees consider if this money is put to good use: the main Budget and Performance Committee, which is supported by a specialist Budget Monitoring Sub-Committee. These two Committees scrutinise budget and performance in a wide variety of areas across GLA and its functional bodies including:

 

Current investigations

The  committee is investigating the finances of Transport for London (TfL) and the implications of its budget deficit and fall in passenger numbers. This also forms part of its work scrutinising the Mayor's draft budget for 2019/20 in a series of meetings. 

These include:

  • The Metropolitan Police and London Fire Brigade - watch the webcast
  • The London Legacy Development Corporation and the Old Oak and Park Royal Development Corporations - watch the webcast
