Answer for Audit panel

Answered By: 
The Mayor

The members of the Forensic Audit Panel will undertake their roles without drawing a salary. Their biographies have been put on the Mayor's website. I have asked them to undertake a detailed examination of the activities, finances and internal procedures of the LDA and GLA and make recommendations on how we can strengthen accountability, and how we can improve value for money. The total cost of the audit cannot be determined at this early stage.
