Question

Now that the Garden Bridge Trust has decided to wind down, will you call for a formal public inquiry to investigate the concerns raised in the Margaret Hodge report regarding the procurement, management of the Trust and actions of your predecessor. I am most concerned that blurred lines of responsibility and the selective amnesia of those involved are letting the guilty parties off the hook.

Dame Margaret's inquiry was a wide ranging independent review which is publicly available. I do not believe it necessary for another inquiry that will not tell us anything new.

I am ensuring that TfL and the wider GLA family take action on the lessons from Dame Margaret's report and TfL has already published its response which sets out a range of management actions they are taking.
