Navin Shah AM: With a large number of commuters, I too was stuck at 8.30am this morning at Harrow on the Hill Station. I have personally made representations to both of you and you both have kindly not only explained the reason for the signals failure but also apologised for the failure itself. I want to leave it at that.
What I want to move on to swiftly now is a question about the agency staff. Mr Mayor, in your manifesto pledge you stated that you would halve the £300 million cost of consultants and agency staff to £190.5 million. As of June 2018 you had cut £176 million from the agency staff budget. Has this welcome and significant reduction had an effect on TfL’s ability to deliver its services, which is critical?
