Debate has been postponed on a motion to formally ask London's integrity commissioner to probe a city hall sex scandal that erupted last week.

Councillor Josh Morgan put forward a motion Monday asking that the commissioner investigate whether the affair between Mayor Matt Brown and former deputy mayor Maureen Cassidy broke council's code of conduct.

Members of the corporate services committee discussed the motion behind closed doors and ended up unanimously passing a motion to refer the debate to a special meeting which is set for Thursday.

In addition to looking for any violations by Brown and Cassidy, Morgan's motion requests the integrity commissioner improve the code of conduct to clear up any ambiguities.
