Answer for Port of London Authority

Answered By: 
The Mayor

I have had several very constructive discussions with the Port of London Authority's Chair and Chief Executive over the years and I am pleased to say that I have confidence in the PLA activities in London. We now work in a very constructive partnership promoting the increased use of the Thames in London. The PLA are actively supporting my policies, for example in assisting in the search for additional boatyard capacity in London.
