MQT 21 October chamber straight on

A minute's silence for Paris at MQT

17 November 2015

This meeting took place on 18 November 2015. Read the transcript for the first section here

Tomorrow's Mayor's Question Time will begin with a minute's silence for the victims of the Paris attacks.

The London Assembly[2] has five more opportunities to question Mayor Boris Johnson before his Mayoral term ends.  Tomorrow Assembly Members will ask him about:

  • Increasing cycling in London
  • The impact of the junior doctors’ contract
  • Advertising on police patrol cars
  • The Paris Climate Change Summit

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[3].

The role of the Assembly is to act as a check and balance on the activities of the Mayor.

The meeting will take place on Wednesday, 18 November 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.

The meeting can also be viewed via webcast.
