Boris Johnson will appear before the London Assembly on Wednesday for the first Mayor’s Question Time since July.
The session will start with a section of ‘priority questions’ from Assembly Members from all four City Hall parties on the August riots and policing.
AMs will then question the Mayor on other matters within his remit.
Labour AM Val Shawcross will be taking Labour’s ongoing campaign topic of annual transport fare increases into the chamber, asking the Mayor whether he is “still proposing to increase transport fares next year by RPI +2%?”
Victoria Borwick will return to an issue she first raised in March and urge the Mayor to join her and other supporters of the Royal Brompton’s campaign to retain its children’s heart surgery unit.
Unsuccessful Liberal Democrat Mayoral hopeful Mike Tuffrey will be calling on Johnson to support his Big Switch plan and convert “all London’s buses and taxis” to use electric power by 2020.
Jenny Jones, the sole challenger to Johnson in next year’s Mayoral race to sit around the Assembly table, will be asking the Mayor whether “gluing pollution to the roads twice a day is a way of avoiding European fines rather than actually solving the problem?”
The full list of questions, including those for written answer, can be downloaded here.
