Facebook Live Q&A

Join me on Wednesday 7th April at 7pm on Facebook as I take your questions live.

I will be joined by the Conservative London Assembly candidate for Croydon and Sutton for the upcoming London Mayoral and London Assembly elections on May 6th, Neil Garratt. 

The Mayor of London is either wholly or at least partly responsible for the following in London:

  • Arts & Culture
  • Business & Economy
  • Environment
  • Fire
  • Health
  • Housing and Land
  • Planning
  • Policing & Crime
  • Regeneration
  • Sport
  • Transport
  • Young People

The Assembly holds the Mayor and Mayoral advisers to account by publicly examining policies and programmes through committee meetings, plenary sessions, site visits and investigations.

The Mayor should respond to Assembly motions and formal recommendations.

In addition, the Assembly questions the Mayor ten times a year at Mayor’s Question Time. 

The Mayor must also consult Assembly Members before producing statutory strategies and the multi-billion pound budget for the GLA Group.  The Assembly can reject the Mayor’s strategies and amend the draft budget if a majority of two-thirds agree to do so.

If you would like to ask a question, please pop in in the box below. 

We will try to answer as many as possible, but please accept our apologies if we can't answer them all, but feel free to follow up afterwards and we will respond to you.

Please note I can only take questions from Carshalton and Wallington residents, which are relevant to the Coronavirus outbreak and response.

Don't forget to 'like' and 'follow' my Facebook page in order to watch along.

As ever, if you ever need to get in touch, please email me at elliot.colburn.mp@parliament.uk or call me on 020 7219 5862.
