Officers are drafting a response which will be sent shortly.

Written response from the Mayor received 19 September 2013

The most relevant Deputy Mayor is invited to attend LGBT stakeholder meetings when the main agenda item falls within their portfolio. For example, the Deputy Mayor for Policing and Crime presented at the October 2012 meeting, and took on board the feedback on LGBT hate crime from the meeting when finalising my Police and Crime Plan. In addition, my Deputy Mayor Munira Mirza and her Assistant Director oversee our community outreach programmes.
