Dear Sir or Madam,

I am writing to you to request information under the Freedom of
Information Act 2000. In order to assist you with this request, I
am outlining my query as specifically as possible.

The Mayor of London took part in a "people's question time" meeting
in the London borough of Hillingdon at the Beck Theatre on
Wednesday 21st January 2009. Please could you confirm who was
invited to be a platform speaker at the event?

Further please could you detail the total cost of the event?
Including venue hire, event publicity, staff time, speakers
expenses and fees and any other expenditures associated with the
event.

I am interested in any information held by the Greater London
Authority regarding my request. I understand that I do not have to
specify particular files or documents and that it is the
Authority's responsiblility to provide the information I require.

I would be grateful if you could confirm in writing that you have
received this request. I look forward to your full response within
the statutory 20 working days.

Thank you in advance for your help with this request.

Yours faithfully,

Subject: Freedom of Information request - Mayor of London's People's
Question Time

The Mayor would like to thank you for your interest in his work and he is
keen to answer your query as fully as possible. As you will appreciate, he
has received a very large amount of correspondence from Londoners since
the election and it is proving quite challenging to respond as quickly as
we would like.

Please note that non Greater London Authority (GLA) related queries will
be referred to the appropriate functional body for them to reply e.g.
transport related queries will be referred to Transport for London (TfL).

However, the Mayor is committed to responding to all appropriate
correspondence and everything is being done to reply to your query as
quickly as possible.

This is an automated message and therefore does not require any response.
