Following our discussion at last month's MQT meeting, I welcome your pledge to lobby the Government to introduce legislation requiring all public sector buildings to have a Public Access Defibrillator installed in them. When will you do this?

Answered By: 
The Mayor

As part of the wider London health and care devolution I am working with government departments to devolve powers and resources to London. This will enable London to have the autonomy to implement schemes such as yours in the capital.

This will form part of a wider dialogue the GLA is progressing with central government and its agencies about further devolution of the powers and resources needed to enable London to determine this for itself.
