Steve O’Connell AM:  On that same point, it is well argued and it is unanswerable, the case for one coherent transport system under mayoral control.


Picking up on Val and James’s point, I wrote last week to Govia Thameslink Railway (GTR), in essence demanding that it considers proper compensation - and I think there is agreement around this horseshoe - and not the compensation that you can automatically get for 30 minutes late, which is the business-as-usual compensation.  We have a structural problem here.  My letter to Charles Horton [Chief Executive Officer, GTR] was demanding on behalf of my constituents in Croydon and Sutton the consideration for a discount when they come to renew their season tickets next time around.


Again, I would ask for your support for that so that proper compensation can go to all of those constituents across south London who have suffered.
