Agenda item

The Freedom of the City

(A)      To consider a circulated list of applications for the Freedom of the City.

For Decision


(B)      To report action taken in approving an application for the Freedom of the City of London under urgency procedures on behalf of the Court of Common Council, as there was insufficient time for the Court approval to be obtained in the usual way:


To Dalal Al-Duwaisan, wife to the Ambassador of Kuwait; being nominated by the Rt Hon The Lord Mayor and Chief Commoner, Simon Duckworth, Citizen and Skinner. Urgent approval was granted to Mrs Dalal Al-Duwaisan as the Ambassador of Kuwait was due to retire and return to Kuwait with Mrs Dalal Al-Duwaisan. It was anticipated that their return would be in advance of both the next meeting of the Freedom Applications Sub-Committee and the Court of Common Council meeting and it was considered desirable to expedite the approval to allow the Ceremony to occur in advance of this.
