The Mayor


Gareth Bacon AM:  Thank you, Chairman.  In contrast to my new colleague, could I encourage you not to withdraw the application?  East London is starved of river crossings and desperately needs the Silvertown Tunnel.  You are correct to point to the pollution levels around the Blackwall Tunnel.  The Silvertown Tunnel is designed to alleviate that.  Can I please encourage you not to heed the eloquent argument, but to press ahead with the plan to build Silvertown?

Sadiq Khan (Mayor of London):  Duly noted, Mr Chairman.  It is really important that while work has taken place, as you are well aware, in relation to what is happening with Silvertown there is going to be a DCO process done.  Let us wait and see what happens there.
