Role Of The Lord Mayor

Last Friday, as a former Lady Mayoress of Birmingham,  I gave evidence to the Scrutiny Committee which has been convened to look into the future role of the Lord Mayor in light of possible constitutional changes in the city (which do course include the possibility of reverting to the old Committee system should the electorate vote against an elected mayor in Birmingham).

This was followed yesterday by the annual lunch of former Civic Heads – which was hosted in the Banqueting Suite by the current Lord Mayor, Cllr Anita Ward. Many former Civic Heads are still on the Council of course, but many are not, and it is always a lovely occasion as old colleagues from all sides of the political spectrum but with one important thing in common, gather for a chat, lunch and the obligatory annual photo!
