Answered By: 
The Mayor

I have not discussed the idea of replacing the Fourth Plinth Programme with its Commissioning Group because I have no plans to.

The Fourth Plinth has been an important site for innovative public art commissions since 1999 and more artworks are set to appear on it in the future. The unique triumph of the plinth programme is that it is a platform for changing commissions, not a permanent tribute, making it a must-see cultural attraction for London, which underpins the capital's status as a great world city for art.
