Boris wields axe at LDA and launches 'transparency' probe
LDA chair Mary Reilly and chief executive Manny Lewis were ‘asked to step down from their roles’, and will be replaced by Harvey McGrath as interim chair and another former Westminster man, Peter Rogers, as interim chief executive.
Johnson said of the swift sackings: ‘I was elected on a very clear mandate of providing value for money for London taxpayers. It starts here with the London Development Agency.’
Harvey McGrath has served as vice chair of the new London Skills and Employment Board, while Peter Rogers has spent the last four years as chief executive of Westminster City Council.
