Questions on matters relating to the work of the Committee


River Pollution

A Member asked what actions were being taken by the City of London in light of the pollution to the river, as due to COVID-19, there had been an increase of PPE including masks, gloves and wet wipes being thrown into the river.


Officers advised the Committee that London Councils were working to address this and that the City of London was working collaboratively with them on this matter. Members were informed that the City of London had asked London Councils to lobby TfL to provide information to commuters and increase awareness via their public announcement systems.
