Commenting on the decision by Ken Livingstone and Bob Kiley not to appeal

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.'
