Answered By: 
The Mayor

The original budget for the Policing Global Cities: Gangs Summit agreed by the Deputy Mayor for Policing and Crime in December 2013 was £41,500.

The actual cost of the Summit stands at £23,721 as of 24/06/14. However, £22,500 was provided through external sponsorship secured by MOPAC so thus far the cost to the public purse has been £1,221.

We are still awaiting some costs to be confirmed and so the final figure is anticipated to be closer to £2,000.
