As part of the most recent TfL funding agreement with Government, the model for TTLP - TfL’s subsidiary which is primarily responsible for housing delivery - is changing and Lord Kerslake concludes this may undermine your ability to direct or influence TfL housing delivery functions, including mandating collaboration across the GLA Group. Why is this? Is this issue being addressed in future funding negotiations?

With regards to future funding, the government has extended funding support for TfL until 24 June 2022. We have no certainty of what will happen after that. As I have said before, without adequate funding TfL will have to move to a managed decline scenario, meaning severe cuts to services and capital investment. The pandemic is the only reason TfL is facing a financial crisis.
