Report of the Director of Markets and Consumer Protection.
The Committee considered the report of the Director of Markets and Consumer Protection on the London Markets Board.
The following matters were raised:-
· The Chairman confirmed that the Corporation had contributed to the consultation on the London Markets Board and had put forward a proposed representative. Although that representative had not been appointed, wholesale markets were represented on the Board by Covent Garden Market.
· It was noted that the London Markets Board members would be invited to attend the Markets Committee dinner in March.
· The Committee were in agreement that a further bid to be represented on the Board should be made, including the scope for co-opted membership. The Director of Markets and Consumer Protection undertook to respond to this point during the non-public session.
