TaxPayers’ Alliance responds to £1 billion TfL bailout

For immediate release


Responding to the £1 billion Transport for London emergency funding deal, John O’Connell, chief executive of the TaxPayers' Alliance, said:

“Even before covid, TfL’s finances were already going down the tubes.

“While some support on lost fares is understandable, this means yet another billion pound bailout for an organisation which wastes huge amounts of money.

“London's transport bosses need to start delivering real savings so they never again throw taxpayers under the bus.”
