Question

: I was disturbed to learn that, since the transport strategy was released, there have been other problems about People's question Time or advertising of posts on the GLA. For People's Question Time, people asked for information to be sent to them by email rather than by post, because they can collect it more easily if they are partially sighted. Why can we not send out information by email, and what other methods are we using to contact people, in addition to the traditional post?

I would have to look in to what is happening. I would just remind Members that we are still only 70% staffed up. We are coming up to the first anniversary of out election, and we will pass it with about 20% of staff places unfilled. There are bound to be problems. This may not be related, it may not be one of them, but there are still problems with an organisation which, this far down the line, is not fully staffed up.
