Thank you, Chair. Can I say how grateful I am to Assembly Member Shawcross for raising the issues of outer London and the residents of outer London? I live in outer London. I represent outer London. Indeed, I travel in from outer London on a daily basis. I am pleased that after 12 years the Labour Party is actually interested in outer London. Perhaps they will come and visit us. They certainly did not for the first eight years.
But, Mr Mayor, my residents have gone through pain as the Metropolitan line has been upgraded and indeed at weekends as the Jubilee line has had investment made into it. Can you assure us, now that we have a superb and improving system with the new trains and air conditioning as well, that you will take no decision that will endanger the continued investment in the Tube line? Would you please indicate any type of decision that you will certainly avoid which would impact upon investment in the Tube to bring it up to the 21st century?
