Answered By: 
The Mayor

I am pleased that Assembly members are acknowledging the improvements in the website. There will be further developments of the site, to make it even more interactive and easy to use. I am proposing closer integration of the GLA's public affairs functions as suggested in your committee's report. I intend to ask the GLA and the functional bodies to review how they brand their services in order to increase the awareness of Londoners of the activities of the GLA Group.I am reviewing the effectiveness of different means of communication in order to increase awareness of the activities of the GLA Group. .
