Havering and Redbridge AM Roger Evans has said he wants to overcome political differences to make London “the greatest city on earth” in his new role as deputy chairman of the London Assembly.

He was elected unanimously to the position today during the assembly’s annual meeting.

The Conservative member is also deputy chairman of the audit panel and sits on the police and crime and transport committees.

He said: “I look forward serving Londoners in my new role as deputy chairman and hope that I can repay the faith shown by my fellow assembly members in electing me unanimously.

“There are strong and deeply held political differences among assembly members but I know from my 13 years at City Hall that we all share the same aim - making London the greatest city on earth.”
