Boris Johnson faces London Assembly on Wednesday for the final Mayor’s Question Time before September.
The Mayor is set to be questioned by Green Party AM Darren Johnson on his efforts to secure £230m for electric vehicle incentives which could be under threat from Government cuts.
He’s also due to face cross-party calls from LibDem AM Caroline Pidgeon and Labour’s Val Shawcross on plans to cut opening times of 245 ticket offices.
The AMs have tabled a motion calling for the Mayor to “review this decision and re-affirm reasonable and safe staffing levels right across the London Underground network to ensure passengers continue to receive excellent service from London Underground.”
The motion has won the support of RMT General Secretary Bob Crow who said the union “welcomes the cross-party support for the campaign to stop the axing of station staff and ticket offices which we have repeatedly warned will turn the tube into a mugger’s paradise as well as having a corrosive effect on the quality of passenger service.”
Also on transport, Richard Barnbrook has a question for the Mayor on the lifespan of vessels providing the Woolwich Ferry service and wants to know “how advanced are measures to upgrade them?”
Tory AM Andrew Boff – seldom known to ask the Mayor helpful questions – wants to know why the Olympic Stadium is costing “£533 million to construct…when the Commonwealth Stadium in Manchester only cost £110 million?”
