Assembly meeting

Budget Monitoring Sub-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 Transport for London, the Metropolitan Police, the London Fire and Emergency Planning Authority, the London Legacy Development Corporation, and the Old Oak and Park Royal Development Corporation.
