Mr Mayor, I was not going to intervene but I do want to go back to an earlier point made by Assembly Member Caroline Pidgeon [MBE]. It is not about being in favour - or it should not be about being in favour - of one set of designs or the other. You may have misunderstood. It is about the processes. We have been here before. When an Assembly Member raises a question about the process, we need to clear the air. What has happened in terms of questions, in my understanding, that have been asked of TfL is that it has not managed to clear the air. It is about the process. These processes were changed because of the process followed on the Garden Bridge, which were wrong before. This is déjà vu with some of the comments that Assembly Member Bacon was raising. The issue is you can have a meeting with your Deputy Mayor for Transport [Heidi Alexander] but we need a very clear and comprehensive report that nothing untoward has happened in the processes. The reason I say that is that TfL has form. I am not suggesting you are involved in that. We have officials giving you advice; we had the same officials giving advice to your previous Mayor [The Rt Hon Boris Johnson MP], etc, and telling us the processes were right, and the processes were not right and they have been found out not to be right. There is a trust and confidence in TfL over its procurement practices that need to be cleared. If it cannot answer in a clear manner in terms of outside this forum, there has to be some questions.
You have rightly offered a meeting with Heidi Alexander [Deputy Mayor for Transport], but I do not want you, as a Labour Mayor, to be tainted with the processes followed by officials who quite frankly either have learnt the lessons or not learnt the lessons. You need to have some decisive action of clearing the air and making sure that we are clear we are following the rules. At the moment that is not clear from the information I have seen. You may have seen something different to us but that is what this Assembly should be looking for.
