Mayor is too late on excessive severance payments for senior TfL staff

Caroline Pidgeon AM, Liberal Democrat London Assembly Member, commenting on the severance payments set out in TfL’s Annual Report, and the decision of the Mayor of London to commission a review into notice periods and severance arrangements for senior staff across the GLA Group, said:

"Passengers will find these huge severance payments galling at a time when Tube reliability has been in decline and many bus services are being cut back.

"Ordering a review into future payments is no cover for the fact that these have taken place at a time when Sadiq Khan has been the head of TfL. The Mayor's actions are merely attempting to close the stable gate after the horse has bolted."
