The Government announced, on
A number of broad proposals on the future powers and responsibilities of the Mayor of London and the Greater London Authority (GLA) were put forward in the public consultation carried out by the Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) between November 2005 and February 2006. These included an option where the current structure for waste management would remain the same. Consultees were also asked whether there were any additional powers that could be given to the GLA that would enable the current structure to work better.
A summary of consultation responses is available from the DCLG's website at http://www.communities. gov.uk/index.asp?id=1501733.
