Question

I regret your decision that West Ham and Canning Town should not also become Zone 2/3 stations but respect that this is your decision. Can you confirm that a passenger who in innocence purchases a zone 1 & 2 ticket to travel from Stratford to Central London will not be penalised or face a fine or prosecution if they choose to travel on the Jubilee Line to make that journey, even though they will technically be straying into zone 3.

I can confirm that customers will not be penalised for using the Jubilee in the circumstances you describe. 

Single and return tickets between Stratford and Central London can be used via the Jubilee line.

Pay as you go users will be charged only the 2-zone fare and are free to use the Jubilee Line.

Holders of Oyster Travelcard seasons for Zones 1 and 2 can use the Jubilee line and will not be charged an additional fare provided they do not alight at West Ham or Canning Town.
