Question

Do you think that another lesson from this might be that part of the budget for what was obviously an expensive campaign in consulting on the transport strategy - and some might say was a showy one - could better be spent on working out how to reach the hard-to-reach groups; and that we need to put effort into ensuring that consultation does involve those that we all want to involve?

No one could disagree with those sentiments at all. When the organisation is fully staffed up, we have to ensure that an officer is responsible at all times for ensuring that all Londoners are able to get access to what we produce in the form that they require. Perhaps I will discuss with the appropriate Members of the Assembly how to carry this forward.
