Answered By: 
The Mayor

Boris Johnson (Mayor of London): I just saw the figures. About 1 million or something like that. I think the total we were expecting during a year was 2 million and I think John [Biggs] even promised to vote for me if we built that. Did he keep that promise? Maybe he did.

Darren Johnson (Chair): He didn't even vote for me and it was my idea!

Boris Johnson (Mayor of London): Do we think he even voted Labour? I doubt it.

Darren Johnson (Chair): Assembly Member O'Connell.
