Answered By: 
The Mayor

TfL has now been invoiced for the fees of Parliamentary Agents and Counsel who represented TfL before the Opposed Bill Committee which considered the Transport for London Bill. The cost to TfL is £39,294 (exclusive of VAT). The Bill is being promoted so that TfL may conduct its financial affairs and mitigate risks more efficiently and will potentially allow TfL to realise tens of millions of pounds in savings in the short to medium term.
