Question

Following on from Roger's point about sub-contractors, yesterday a Southwark inquest jury returned a verdict of unlawful killing. It was reported that the employee was only three days into the job and he'd had 1½ days training and was working for sub-contractors Balfour Beatty Rail Maintenance Ltd. Can you tell us whether TfL will have any mechanism for forcing the Infracos under PPP to train the staff of their sub-contractors properly?
