It should be noted that the Mayor actually said something nice about a Liberal Democrat-run Council, I thought the theme for this morning was attacking the Liberal Democrats from all sides, I am glad others have joined in, entertaining if not particularly enlightening. If it is underground photovoltaics panels we are obviously after the Womble vote. I will check into the details, but I am sure it is not as you presented it.
The serious point that I want to ask the Mayor about is whether he agrees that we should be using the opportunity of the Thames Gateway developments to explore new standards of construction, new methods of construction and indeed not just trying to have the roll-out of the financial business services sector, important though that is, but to look at the development of opportunities in the Thames Gateway to develop these sorts of green industries. Would he agree with that and if he does, does he share my concerns that the Government consultation paper on the Urban Development Corporation (UDC), which they have just launched this week, seems to carve out a huge area that the UDC would take over and that will lead to a fragmentation of regeneration direction in this area?
