Answered By: 
The Mayor

The Deputy Mayor for Environment and his team hosted a workshop with London's solar industry and I am fully aware of its representations to the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change.  I am also making representations expressing my concerns as to the potential impact of these changes to the Secretary of State.
