This is not a London Borough committee structure. It will exist to resolve problems. There will be a personal assistant for each minister only. The Mayor will control personnel allocation, as policy will be carried out by small (4-5 person) task forces, to prevent departmentalitis obstructing the carrying out of policy. These small groups will largely exist to promote, help & assist the Boroughs in carry forward the objectives of the Mayor & Assembly.
