Local Authorities: London Snowfall

Volume 708: debated on Monday 23 February 2009


Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government whether they will hold an inquiry into the response of local authorities in London to snowfall on 1 February. [HL1278]

It is for the Mayor of London to review the performance of Transport for London during the recent snowfall and to look at its relationship with London's boroughs over their response to clearing the road network of snow. Beyond this the London Regional Resilience Forum, on which the Mayor is the deputy chair, will be considering the extent to which lessons can be learnt from the response to the recent snow in London.
