My Lords, I am sure that the newly elected mayor will be very well aware of his responsibility for ensuring that the money that we have set aside for the next 10 years is well spent and spent on the continuation of the refurbishment programme. I pay particular tribute to the Transport Commissioner for London, Peter Hendy. He has done a fantastic job, as has Tim O'Toole. They are to be congratulated on ensuring that the refurbishment programme is very much on track.
