The Committee has written to the six ‘metro mayors’ elected in 2017 inviting them to a roundtable on the Seven Principles of Public Life and ethical standards. Since the metro mayors will be taking up newly-created public offices, it is particularly important that they show leadership in embedding the principles as a driving force during their time in office.
The metro mayors have powers for strategic decision making across city regions with responsibility for more functions than under previous legislation. Building on our past reports on how these principles apply to Police and Crime Commissioners (2015) and in local government (2017), we invite the mayors to discuss how the seven principles can become the cornerstone of their life as mayor.
The Committee hopes the mayors will accept this invitation, and plans to host all six metro mayors at a roundtable session in October.
