Green light for Lord Rogers' new GLA consultancy post

  • Comment

Lord Rogers' position as a £130,000-a-year consultant to the Greater London Authority looked sealed last week when assembly members dropped the bulk of their objections to his appointment.

Labour members, who had originally opposed the inclusion of fees for the Labour peer in Ken Livingtsone's budget, gave the green light for Lord Rogers to start work on the capital's spatial development strategy. Assembly members had raised objections that Lord Rogers would be both a paid consultant and, in a separate capacity, a mayoral advisor. There were also fears his role could lead to conflicts of interest. Even after the ratification of the budget, Labour member Len Duvall submitted an emergency motion to demand greater transparency about the role. Despite this motion, Lord Rogers is expected to start work soon.
