Answered By: 
The Mayor

I am committed to running a transparent administration and I encourage London & Partners to improve its accountability to Londoners.

London & Partners is a company limited by guarantee and as such files its annual accounts at companies house which give a breakdown of its overall expenditure. London & Partners Chief Executive and Chief Operating Officer give annual public evidence to the London Assembly and report to me via my Economic and Business Policy Unit on a quarterly basis on how it spends its grant as part of its regular performance review.
