Caroline Pidgeon has written to the Secretary of State for Transport and the Minister for London, stressing the importance and urgency of finding a sustainable long-term financial solution for Transport for London.
"It is time TfL was no longer treated like a political football.
"TEL should be allowed to maintain a full range of services and properly plan ahead. This is vital for Londoners, the capital's economy and the country.
"Refusing to publish a taxpayer funded report into TEL's finances or consider a long-term finance settlement is wrong. Asking Government to treat TfL with the same respect as the train operating companies is not much to ask for."
"Treating TfL in an open and fair way is not only important for London, but the whole country and its economy."
