Answer for Appointment of Chief Digital Officer

Answered By: 
The Mayor

I am committed to fulfilling my manifesto commitment to appoint London's first Chief Digital Officer (CDO).

London's CDO will lead on vital work which will help London, and Londoners, adapt to and take advantage of new digital technologies, and it is vital that we find the right individual for this role.

I have not yet set a specific date for the appointment of a CDO.
