Question

In answer to MQ 2016/4554 you stated "I expect independent confidential reporting to be incorporated as a mandatory health and safety requirement in my Mayoral guidance document for London Service Permits (LSP)" and "the guidance will be amended to reflect this requirement following the final publication of my Transport Strategy, which will be published in draft for consultation in the spring." Why does your draft Transport Strategy appear silent on the issue of confidential incident reporting for coaches or lorries?

I still expect independent confidential reporting to be incorporated as a health and safety requirement in my revised Mayoral guidance document for London Service Permits.

Following the outcomes of the current consultation on my draft Transport Strategy, I will consider including specific reference to further safety mechanisms for coaches and lorries in the final version, to be published in 2018.
