My Lords, we made an announcement towards the end of last year. The Prime Minister himself made it very clear that we are not only committed to Crossrail but that we have committed the money for Crossrail. We agreed a package with the London mayor and the City that we will deliver Crossrail. Crossrail is an extremely exciting and important project. I would not want to see anyone get in the way of ensuring that that project works properly.
