): Are you aware what a scandal this is, Mr Mayor, because there are five platforms standing unused and that has been the case since Eurostar transferred to St Pancras? The security and so on is costing the taxpayer £500,000 each year and, meanwhile, there are trains coming in, particularly from the Windsor direction, which, in some cases, have to stand outside Waterloo Station waiting to get into a platform, commuters are held up and, meanwhile, this Government and this Department for Transport faffs around, frankly, with this. These platforms could be available. Mr Sadiq Khan, the Rail Minister, himself is an MP in southwest London and really ought to be pushing the thing along.
Or, shall I ask you, do we have to wait, actually, for a change of government next year before anything can happen at the Eurostar platforms before 2014?
