Question

I think through the Bureau of Leaders that there are conversations to commemorate and mark the loss of members from the London County Council (LCC) and other associated bodies and I think that is wholly appropriate.  I know that the boroughs out there are also marking it with appropriate events.  I was pleased to learn that the GLA particularly will take part in that and you, Mr Mayor.  Therefore, you are saying that you indeed will lead our contingents in commemoration yourself as, in essence, the political leader of the town?

Answer for 1914 Campaign (Supplementary) [1]

Yes, that is right.  You will be aware that there were about 1,063 staff and three Members of the London County Council who died on active service in the First World War and obviously we will be particularly commemorating them.
