Responding to the publication of Dame Margaret Hodge’s review into the Garden Bridge, John O'Connell, Chief Executive of the TaxPayers' Alliance, said:

"This utterly damning report proves what campaigners have been saying about this hugely expensive vanity project all along. There is absolutely no justification to carry on wasting taxpayers' money on this ludicrous scheme. Those who have managed to leave taxpayers out of pocket by allocating £60 million to this project must hang their heads in shame, and the Mayor must ensure that not a penny more of taxpayers' money is wasted on it."
