How will the GLA build stronger relationships with central government, particularly DLUHC and Treasury, as recommended by the Kerslake Review?

I have always been open to working constructively with the government to address the needs of Londoners and to tackle our joint priorities.

Improved GLA Group collaboration, including through the new Homes for Londoners Board sub-committee will help identify joint priorities for government engagement. A review of current touchpoints is underway and this will help to streamline engagement and make it more consistent across the GLA Group.

My Deputy Mayor for Housing and Residential Development has invited the Housing Minister for regular meetings to work through strategic issues. While a productive relationship will deliver significant benefits for London and the UK, success will also depend on the government engaging productively.
