Last month the assembly took the decision to streamline the way its committees operate, making them more responsive to events across the capital. Under the new arrangements, the committees will conduct comprehensive investigations and continue to promote economic development, wealth creation, social development and improve the environment.

Trevor Phillips, chair of the London assembly, said: 'Over the past two years, assembly members have successfully held the mayor to account, conducted investigations, scrutinised issues, and made recommendations that have improved the lives of Londoners. However, the new assembly structure will allow us to campaign better on issues on behalf of Londoners, and our investigative powers can now be used more effectively to keep a check on the mayor and his advisors.'
In addition, some current investigative committees established by the assembly over the last year will continue their investigations and publish a report on completion.
These committees are as follows:
Access to Primary Health Care Advisory Committee (Joint scrutiny with the mayor's office)
Flooding Investigative Committee
London Weighting Advisory Panel
The Tube Future Priorities Investigative Committee
