Remembrancer's Office - Working with Parliament

Like many other organisations, the City of London Corporation regularly engages with Parliament on issues in which it has particular experience or expertise, helping MPs and Peers to debate and make decisions informed by a wide range of evidence.

Within the City Corporation, the Remembrancer's Office is responsible for leading on this engagement. One of the principal ways in which the office engages is via the submission of evidence to parliamentary select committees. In recent years, the office has submitted evidence to parliamentary committees on a wide range of topics, reflecting the breadth of work undertaken by the City Corporation.

These submissions draw on the knowledge and expertise of every part of the City Corporation and City of London Police, and have contributed to inquiries as diverse as on the Single Market, the funding of arts and heritage, housing, support for apprenticeships and psychoactive substances, to name a few.

A full list of the submissions made to parliamentary select committees from 2010 to the present can be found below, searchable by Committee and Policy Area. To see all the submissions made to a particular Committee, select the relevant committee and 'All Policies'.
