Peter Hendy (Commissioner, Transport for London)


Thank you for that. It is intended to be a constructive question as well as asking about constructive engagement. I think I have been asked to do it so that it was not Geoff [Pope] getting at you all the way through the meeting! I am glad to hear that because that was not one of the suggestions that was agreed before, and perhaps that can be taken forward both for you, as Commissioner, and others in TfL.

There has been a reference this morning to difficulties about responses. Thank you for putting in place a liaison person. The experience seems to be that the low level short inquiries do get a quicker response but at the higher level - it was described to me as crisis situations - when major things are going on, it is very difficult for Members of the Assembly to get briefings or to get to talk to anyone who can give them substantial answers. Is that something you might take away?
