Members of the London Assembly have voted to “summon” London mayor Ken Livingstone and Bob Kiley to answer questions about Mr Kiley’s consultancy contract with Transport for London.
The vote, which was supported by 15 members of the Assembly, follows an Evening Standard report last month in which Bob Kiley was quoted as saying he did “very little” in his capacity as consultant to TfL.
The motion was tabled by Conservative AM Angie Bray and seconded by her colleague Roger Evans.
Ms Bray said Mr Kiley is “one of the highest paid public servants in the country and Londoners deserve to know the contents of his contract” she added, “rhis is not about Kiley’s personal problems, but rather about the comments regarding what he does or does not do for his money.”
A spokesman for Mr Livingstone told MayorWatch: “Bob Kiley, is one of the world’s leading transport experts. He was worth every penny of his salary as Commissioner of Transport for London, and helped build one of the best leadership teams in the world.”
“The Mayor is happy to answer questions from the London Assembly on this.”
