What is the cost of the further delays to the new Emergency Services Network for TfL, the Met Police and the Fire service in London? Will the Home Office be picking up all of these additional costs?

Transport for London (TfL)TfL has provided a revised capital forecast to the Home Office for implementing the Emergency Services Network (ESN) on the Underground against the revised national timetable for delivering ESN.  The Home Office remains responsible for funding the entire cost of delivering this work on the Underground.  TfL will not incur any costs as a result of these delays.

The Home Office will be addressing any cost issues in relation to the Met Police directly, any additional costs will be met by the Government.

The Home Office will also be addressing any cost issues in relation to the Fire Service directly. The only additional cost to the London Fire Brigade is the cost of the project team and this is being covered by grant funded from the Home Office.
