Answer for Renaming the Hammersmith and City Line

Answered By: 
The Mayor

The proposed rebranding of an entire line would involve updating every map and all announcements on every affected train and station on the network. Any associated cost is therefore extensive.

As I have stated previously, the naming of the Hammersmith & City line is entirely appropriate, therefore there is no benefit to be gained that would justify such an extensive undertaking.
