Darren Johnson AM, who was chair of the Assembly during the 2013/14 year, said: “The Annual Report is a great opportunity to tell Londoners what work we have been doing on your behalf over the last year.
“From our regular question and answer sessions with Boris and other senior figures in London government, to investigating a raft of important London issues, to dealing with thousands of Londoners’ concerns, Assembly Members have been your voice at City Hall.
“The Mayor has to answer to Londoners at the ballot box every four years. The job of the London Assembly is to ensure that the Mayor is held accountable every day.”
