The assembly yesterday expressed its concerns at the deadlocked discussions on the funding of London's Underground system. It reaffirmed its opposition to the break-up of the London Underground under PPP and is now calling on the government to honour its commitment to Bob Kiley to provide for unified management of the London Underground.
There is still considerable confusion surrounding the financing of the tube and irrespective of the level of funding raised by PPP, there will still be a large shortfall. This matter is not being addressed.
Speaking after the meeting, Sally Hamwee, deputy chair of the assembly, said: 'It is essential that a solution to the PPP issue is found. This is not about winning or losing arguments, but ensuring that London is kept moving.'
