Lynne Featherstone completes her reply

Another thank you to Lynne, Haringey councillor and Chair of the
London Assembly Transport Policy Committee, who made a very large comment in this blog in request for information about what was going to happen to safety standards on the tube following two derailments in 48 hours. She also gave her view on what was going on in the emergency talks she was part of two weeks ago (see
this post).

Lynne's full addition to her earlier reply is here

It's interesting to note her own opinion which forms part of her response:

"My own personal view is that the Government should be legally liable as it was responsible for signing off a contract which was inadequate in terms of maintenance standards, inspections and supply of information."

Once again a big, big thank you to everyone who asked questions and contributed to the debate and posted links to it on their own websites and blogs. It really has shown that with a bit of noise we can get politicians and people in power to listen.
