Speaker information

Lord Adonis
Jules Pipe (Mayor of Hackney)

With 11 more cities holding referenda on the introduction of elected mayors on 3 May, the debate continues on the relative merits of the mayoral system over the "leader and cabinet" model of local government. Former Director of the Institute for Government Lord Adonis will discuss the findings of his elected mayors city tour in 2011. Mayor of Hackney Jules Pipe will provide insight into his experience as one of a handful of directly elected mayors in the country. Jules Pipe was also elected Chair of London Councils in June 2010 and continues to occupy that role.
