Answered By: 
The Mayor

It is anticipated that the increased flexibility TfL will have to manage its financial affairs and operations as a result of the bill has the potential to save TfL tens of millions of pounds in the short to medium term.

TfL is yet to be invoiced for all of the legal fees associated with the Opposed Bill Committee.
