Thank you for your answer to question 2013/3425. Having achieved those changes, are you now happy with European public procurement regulations or is there further "streamlining" and "paring back" that you would like to see?

Answer for European regulations

Answered By: 
The Mayor

I am in principle always in favour of streamlining and paring back regulation. However, in the case of EU public procurement regulations, they have just been revised, so there is no immediate opportunity to influence them. Once they have been implemented, there will no doubt be a review and consultation at UK and/or EU level and we will seek to feed into this as appropriate at that time.
