Answered By:

TfL is continuing to discuss funding of the East London Line extension to Clapham Junction with the DfT. I met the Secretary of State for Transport, Ruth Kelly, to discuss funding for the project and set out in detail the benefits of delivering this project by December 2011, I am hopeful that a positive conclusion to the negotiations can be reached soon.
