against the high court ruling on the implementation of the public private
partnership*, shadow secretary of state for transport, local government and
the regions, Archie Norman, said:
'Just because the government legally has the final say over the future of
the Tube, this does not mean that opposition to the PPP is at an end.
'Only Gordon Brown believes that proceeding with PPP would be in the best
interests of Londoners.
'The scheme does not guarantee swift and essential modernisation of stations
and trains. With a poorer service forecast for passengers, people need look
no further than the greedy Treasury for someone to blame.'
