Oral question receiving a written response

This particular advertisement that you refer to was correctly rejected because it contains images and messages which relate to matters of public controversy and sensitivity.

I am committed to ensuring that advertising on Transport for London's estate is appropriate for all Londoners and that TfL is a responsible media owner.

I pledged to take action on inappropriate advertising, and when I became Mayor I asked TfL to set up an independent Advertising Steering Group to give guidance and advice on its Advertising Policy.
