Mayor’s questions late answers

Human Rights Act

Question No: 2015/2759

Andrew Dismore

Do you consider the Human Rights Act and the European Convention on Human Rights provide important safeguards to Londoners in their dealings with state bodies including the GLA family?

Written response from the Mayor

There are some important safeguards in both of these documents, which, if we were to replace them with a new British Bill of Rights, would need to be maintained.

Taxi Drivers

Question No: 2015/3543

Andrew Dismore

Do you regret calling taxi drivers ‘luddites’?

Written response from the Mayor

This was not aimed specifically at taxi drivers.
