Question

Further to your answer to MQ2016/1887 - in which you stated that it was not appropriate to discuss the merits of a potential planning application - do you accept that lobbying is a normal and perfectly proper part of the political process, and that those affected by a planning decision will quite rightly seek to influence it through an approach to their elected Mayor?
