Answer for Participative budgeting

Answered By: 
The Mayor

Participative budgeting normally involves giving the public control over a small amount of money at a local level.

Given that London boroughs are the principal providers of local services to Londoners and are better placed to work at a local level than the GLA, I would wish to consult them in bringing forward any participative budgeting proposals.
