I beg to move amendment 187, in schedule 2, page 132, line 39, at end insert—

“(2A) Amend section 38 (delegation) as follows—

(a) in subsection (2) (persons to whom functions exercisable by the Mayor may be delegated) after paragraph (db) insert—

‘(de) London Fire Commissioner;’.

(3) In subsection (7) (power to exercise delegated functions where no existing power to do so) after paragraph (bb) insert—

‘(bc) London Fire Commissioner,’.

(4) After subsection (8B) (further delegation, and Mayor’s power to continue to exercise delegated functions) insert—

‘(8C) An authorisation given by the Mayor under subsection (1) above to the London Fire Commissioner in relation to a function does not prevent the Mayor from exercising the function.’”.

This amendment would delegate the GLA’s general power to do anything which it considers will further the promotion of economic development and wealth creation, social development to the improvement of the environment in Greater London to the London Fire Commissioner. This is in line with the powers delegated to MOPAC.
