On 30 March 2016, whilst running for the office of Mayor of London, you stated that London's transport authority was far too dominated by white men.1 At that point, there were 13 white men on TfL’s board and three women. You stated that you would ensure the board better reflected the ‘diversity’ of Londoners if you became mayor. Could you please tell me what the ethnic and gender composition of TfL’s board is today?

The membership of the TfL Board is published on tfl.gov.uk. During my time as Mayor, I have appointed the most diverse Board in TfL’s history, making it far more representative of the city it serves. The TfL Board currently comprises 14 members including myself, of which eight are women and four are BAME.
