TfL needs to be open with Londoners about the Battersea tube extension delay

After Transport for London announced that the Northern Line extension to Battersea will not be open until 2021, but claimed that this would not result in a loss of revenue for TfL, Caroline Pidgeon told City AM:

"I fail to understand how the delayed opening of the Northern Line will not impact on revenue generated by TfL. There are already extensive retail and leisure facilities at Battersea Power Station, along with homes for sale. It is clear that as soon as the line is open there will be an extensive customer base.

London hospitals have no excuse for not sharing violent crime data

Caroline Pidgeon has criticised the lack of participation by St George's hospital, and the Chelsea and Westminster NHS trust, in a scheme that aims to tackle hidden violence on the street by reporting anonymised information about violent injuries.

Caroline told the Evening Standard:

"This data-sharing scheme is highly effective. For a hospital, especially in London, to opt out of the scheme is truly horrific. As the scheme does not involve any breach of personal data there really is no excuse.”
