Welcoming today's Report into London Underground by the House of Commons Transport Sub-Committee, Commissioner of Transport for London, Bob Kiley said: "I am delighted the Committee has unanimously concluded the Government should not proceed with the London Underground PPP.

"The Committee's Report highlights the PPP's many flaws:

o It is potentially unsafe;
o It creates a fragmented Underground system;
o It is hugely expensive.

"We agree with the Committee's view that the Government must commit itself to sustained, increased funding for the Underground and that it should now work with the Mayor and TfL to put alternatives to the PPP in place, which will deliver real, measurable and deliverable improvements.

"I thank Mrs Dunwoody and the Committee for their hard work on this comprehensive and considered Report."
