Answered By: 
The Mayor

The London TravelWatch Board consists of a Chair and 12 other members. The Board should independently represent the interests of travellers in and around London and not be dominated by a particular interest group. However, the membership of the London TravelWatch Board and the process for agreeing appointments is a matter for the Assembly.
