Londoners invited to contribute to London Assembly transport committee scrutiny of Mayor's cycling policies

London Cycling Campaign staff have been invited to speak before the London Assembly transport committee's scrutiny on the Mayor's cycling policy.

Committee chair Caroline Pidgeon (see video above) is also inviting the public to say what they think about conditions for cycling in the capital, with an invitation to two public meetings at City Hall: on 12 July and 11 September 2012.

The scrutiny is part of the regular workings of the London Assembly, which oversees the work of the Mayor but has no powers to dictate policy.

The Assembly does have the power to question senior civil servants, and it's a measure of the high profile of cycling in London at the present time that the committee has chosen to devote considerable resources to scrutinising cycling policy.
