Andrew Boff AM:  Mr Mayor, effectively, you have answered many of the questions.  I use the opportunity of Caroline Pidgeon’s [Caroline Pidgeon MBE AM] question earlier to raise with you my concerns.  They are not about CS1, not about Quietways and not about Mini‑Hollands.  My concerns are the standards of consultation and that TfL seems to have a ‘not invented here’ attitude to any suggestions for amendments to the plans.

Boris Johnson MP (Mayor of London):  Yes.

Andrew Boff AM:  I ask you to take that away and to take ‑‑

Boris Johnson MP (Mayor of London):  I do.  No, I take that very seriously and I hope that I gave a satisfactory answer earlier on that.  Your points were well made.

Andrew Boff AM:  Thank you, Mr Mayor.  Thank you, Chair.

Jennette Arnold OBE AM (Chair):  OK.  Thank you very much.

Boris Johnson MP (Mayor of London):  Thank you.
