The Mayor


Richard Tracey AM:  Mr Mayor, it is well recognised that Network Rail is not really very good at co-ordinating.  That was particularly shown at Christmastime at King’s Cross.  The problems are pretty well-rooted.


I recollect that the Secretary of State [for Transport], Patrick McLoughlin, did talk about appointing a special Department for Transport director to Network Rail to make sure and to oversee their co-ordination.  Have you heard what progress is being made with that?

Boris Johnson (Mayor of London):  I cannot give you an answer about that appointment.  I will take it up on your behalf and I will see what Patrick is doing about that.
