John McDonnell MP Blocked Boris Johnson’s TFL Bill

John McDonnell last night blocked Boris Johnson’s TFL Bill which John described as a “speculators’ bonanza.” The Bill aimed to give the Mayor wide-ranging powers to enter into deals with developers and speculators to develop TFLs’ sites.

In the debate John expressed his strong concerns that this would mean huge risks for Londoners if these deals went ‘pear shaped’ and could result in the loss of a large number of sites which could be needed in the future for extending and improving London’s transport network.
