Greater London Authority Bill

[back to previous text]

Clause 41

Transfer of power of appointment of members of Board of Governors
Question proposed, That the clause stand part of the Bill.
Yvette Cooper: I join hon. Members in thanking you for chairing the Committee, Mr. O’Hara, and for tolerating our occasional footballing fantasies and escapades at the margins of the Bill. It has been a great pleasure to serve on your Committee.
Clause 41 concerns the Museum of London, which is exactly that—a museum of our capital city—so we think it right to devolve the Government’s role in its governance and support to the directly elected Mayor of the capital. The clause will amend the Museum of London Act 1965 to enable the power to appoint governors to be cast from the Prime Minister to the Mayor, as we think is right. It will also ensure that those appointed by the Prime Minister can serve the remainder of their term.
Question put and agreed to.
Clause 41 ordered to stand part of the Bill.
Further consideration adjourned.—[Jonathan Shaw.]
Adjourned accordingly at twenty-four minutes past Ten o’clock till this day at Two o’clock.
