Procedures of the Greater London Authority
The GLA's 'Rule Book' contains the procedures which govern how the meetings of the London Assembly and its committees are conducted, together with the standards of conduct that the Mayor, Assembly Members, members of advisory bodies and staff are expected to adhere.
The Rule Book currently consists of five documents, as set out below, and is updated from time to time. The section relating to memberships of committees and exempt and protected information relates only to meetings of the London Assembly.
The Standing Orders are the rules which govern the conduct of meetings of the London Assembly and its committees. They also include the GLA's financial regulations.
The Annual Meeting of the Assembly held in May of each year agrees the structure of committees for the forthcoming year, the membership of those committees and what those committees will be responsible for. From time to time during the year the Assembly might agree changes to the memberships.
This is a statutory code which sets out how the Mayor, Deputy Mayor, London Assembly Members and co-opted members of committees and advisory Committees of the Assembly must conduct themselves when performing their functions. The code covers such matters as declaring interests and registering gifts and hospitality.
