Executive summary

The GLA has a memorandum of understanding with the Office for National Statistics (ONS) to supply statistical support for London. In part, the statistical support takes the form of two ONS staff with specialist knowledge to work with the GLA. The arrangement seeks to improve the evidence base for economic policy making in London and was taken on by the GLA following the folding of the London Development Agency (LDA) into GLA.


The Executive Director approves:

  • Expenditure of up to £140,000 to pay for London Statistical Support from the Office for National Statistics in 2015-16.
