I am committed to supporting and protecting London's exhibition spaces which benefit Londoners, visitors and businesses. 

My new draft London Plan will include policies for the Central Activities Zone and town centres which support the development of business and leisure uses.  The draft Visitor Infrastructure policy is aimed at strengthening London's visitor economy which includes uses such as exhibition space.
