1.2     To appoint a Member to the Heathrow Airport Consultative Committee (for the period until
        the first meeting of the Assembly following the next ordinary GLA elections).

1.3     To consider whether to request that Assembly Members appointed (by the Assembly) to
        serve on outside bodies report to the Assembly on an annual basis in respect of their work on
        those outside bodies.


2.      Background

2.1     Commission for Racial Equality London Board

        The London Assembly made the following appointments at its meeting on 18 June 2004 to
        the Commission for Racial Equality London Board (for the period until the first Assembly
        meeting after date of the next ordinary GLA elections):
        •    Lynne Featherstone (AM)
        •    Joanne McCartney (AM)
        •    Andrew Pelling (AM)

2.2     Following Lynne Featherstone’s election as a Member of Parliament for Hornsey and Wood
        Green on 5 May 2005 and subsequent resignation from the Assembly on 1 June 2005, the
        Commission for Racial Equality (CRE) London Board has asked the Assembly to appoint
        another Assembly Member in her place.

        Heathrow Airport Consultative Committee

2.3     In the first Assembly term, Richard Barnes (as constituency Member) acted as the London
        Assembly representative on the Heathrow Airport Consultative Committee (with former
        Member Diana Johnson acting as substitute). The Consultative Committee has requested
        that the Assembly formally appoint a Member to that body for its second term. The British
        Airports Authority (BAA), with which the Consultative Committee works, has agreed (as it is
        required to do) to the (re)appointment of an Assembly Member to that body.

2.5    These appointments were made from the date of appointment until the Assembly
       meeting held after the next ordinary GLA elections (2008).

2.6    In order to keep the Assembly informed of the work of these outside bodies, it is
       suggested (in recommendation 1.3 above) that Members appointed (by the Assembly)
