The London House

Brussels income target for

2007/08 is £240,000. This

includes the

following partner

contributions to the

Joint Venture Agreement:


- LDA (£50,000)

- TfL (£50,000)

- London NHS (£50,000)

- LFEPA (£10,000)


Additional income of

£50,000 from the

MPA/MPS for the Joint

Venture Agreement will

also be made. In 2007/08

this will be solely met by

the MPS with a 50:50 split

in future years.


The GLA’s contribution to

the Joint Venture

Agreement will be met

from the 2007/08 London

House Brussels budget.


It should be noted that by

working in partnership with

the above- mentioned

organisations, the GLA is

able to continue to share

the costs of the Brussels

office and employ staff with

a greater range of

expertise.


The London European

Office is therefore better

placed to deliver its

business plan deliverables.





MA 3038

Agreed:

develop a programme of events

and initiatives to commemorate

and acknowledge the

bicentenary of the abolition of

the Transatlantic Slave Trade in

  5. Africa Day reception and Africa Day celebrations on Trafalgar Square


3. The allocation of £25k towards

with an extension of STAF086

the materials and design

elements supplied at a further

cost of £22k. These sums have

already been met from the

2006/2007 budget approved by

MA2737.

The £10,000 will be carried forward from the 2006/07 Cultural Campaigns Programme budget.




MA 3051

Agreed:


  1. To participate in a broad coalition of human rights, faith, anti-racist, trade unions, journalists, politicians and other organisations to defend freedom of religious and cultural expression.




  1. To support activities arising from the coalition.

29/05/07

Ken Livingstone

Redmond O’Neill

An allocation of £10,000 has been identified from within the 2007/08 Human Rights budget for work associated with this initiative. As this initiative is to be managed within the Stakeholders Team, the £10,000 will be vired to a new budget line within the 2007/08 Stakeholders Programme budget.




MA 3057

In accordance with Financial Regulation 8.6:


  1. Noted the application, in writing on 12th April 2007, to the Court of Appeal for leave to appeal the decision of the High Court of Justice in the Queen on the application of West London Waste Authority and the Mayor handed down on 4 April 2007.




  1. Noted, following the unsuccessful written application, the oral application to the Court of Appeal for leave to appeal the decision of the High Court of Justice in the Queen on the application of West London Waste Authority and the Mayor of London handed down on 4 April 2007.




  1. Agreed the action taken and authorised officers to appeal the decision should leave be granted.




  1. Noted the potential financial implications of these actions.

29/05/07

Ken Livingstone

John Duffy

Costs committed or incurred to date in respect of this legal action total £20,200. Further potential costs related to existing and proposed legal action could total some £220,400.


It is not possible to assess total costs accurately at this stage. The current estimates assess the likely financial implications of an unsuccessful action where the Authority is required to meet WLWA’s legal costs.


No specific provision exists in the Authority’s budget to meet these costs. The Legal Services budget includes £330,000 for external legal costs. Any costs will, in the first instance, be met from this budget. In addition, the Authority maintains a Legal Services reserve to cover the costs of major enquiries / legal proceedings to the extent that costs cannot be contained within the Legal Services approved budget.


The results of the legal proceedings and the financial implications, together with funding proposals, will be subject of further reports, as part of the Authority’s decision-making process.





MA 3059

From the 2007/08 Carnival London budget.


Agreed:


1. Funding of up to £135k is made

available to London Notting Hill

Carnival Ltd (LNHCL) as a

contribution towards the costs

of its 2007 stewarding operation

at the Notting Hill Carnival on

Sunday 26 and Monday 27

August 2007.


2. Funding of up to £15k is made available for the Authority to procure the services of a suitably qualified and experienced consultant or company that will be appointed to evaluate this year’s stewarding operation and provide recommendations for improvement and/or development where necessary and/or appropriate.
