Answer for Legislation requiring Mayoral intervention (1)

Answered By: 
The Mayor

I sought amendments to the proposed Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive to ensure that London remained an attractive base for such funds. I am against an EU Financial Transactions Tax. In relation to State aid for public transport, I am against the development of a specific set of rules at EU level (a 'block exemption') replacing the current statutory exemption. I want to ensure that future EU legislation helps cities take measures to improve air quality. I am seeking amendments to proposed EU procurement rules on modifications of contracts during their term to provide the necessary flexibility when managing large contracts.
