Answered By: 
The Mayor

The government must consider the safety and value for money implications of PPP on their merits. The HSE and NAO reports found the PPP's safety and value for money cases to be unproven. I hope that current negotiations between DETR and Bob Kiley's team will produce a satisfactory solution.
