Answered By: 
The Mayor

I invited a variety of speakers as I was committed to a debate that explored the issues for London's communities across the range of opinions. In particular, care was taken to ensure London's diverse communities were represented at the event. An evening session entitled, `Multicultural London ' does it work?' enabled those members of the Jewish community observing the Sabbath to attend.
