Answered By: 
The Mayor

Yes I have approached the boroughs to discuss my MDC proposals. The consultation on the MDC ended in late September. I received over 300 responses including detailed comments from the three borough leaders. My officers are reviewing through these comments in detail and will meet with the boroughs to get a better understanding of the issues and to determine how best to address any concerns. I remain committed to ensuring there is sufficient local accountability and appropriate transitional arrangements and discussions are ongoing.
