As the Mayor announced that the Greater London Authority will move away from Central London to the Royal Docks, Caroline Pidgeon said:
"While I regret today's decision by the Mayor of London to leave City Hall i understand why he felt it necessary to make this decision given the financial climate.
"I will, however, be closely monitoring the move to ensure it remains on budget and schedule, delivering the level of savings outlined by the Mayor today.
"For me safeguarding the future of London Government is important and I believe it is essential that the Mayor and London Assembly are based at the same location. The move will mark the next chapter for London's Government."
