  3. Khan confident of Night Tube return despite strike threat

    Sadiq Khan

    The mayor of London has said he is "confident" planned driver strikes on the Night Tube will not delay the return of the service.

    Night services on the Victoria and Central lines are set to return at the end of the month for the first time since being suspended in March 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

    The Rail, Maritime and Transport union (RMT) has planned a series of 24-hour walkouts.

    It argues current plans to run the service would wreck the work-life balance of its members.

    Speaking at City Hall earlier, Sadiq Khan said he is “confident that this dispute will not delay the reopening of the Night Tube”, though he admitted, “unfortunately, it may have an impact on service levels”.

    He said reintroducing the service from 29 November is "the right thing to do".

    Overnight Tube services will boost "London’s economic recovery" and "ensure Londoner’s have the best possible range of safe late-night travel options".

    Transport for London (TfL) bosses have been meeting with the RMT union through the Advisory, Conciliation and Arbitration Service (Acas).

  4. Khan: 'I tried working constructively with government'

    Sadiq Khan

    The Mayor of London has defended his announcement that transport services may be axed due to a £1.9bn funding gap.

    Sadiq Khan claims bus services could be cut by a fifth and Tube services by almost 10% without government money.

    Speaking during Mayor's Question Time, Mr Khan said he had kept quiet since TfL announced it needed £1.7bn in extra emergency funding in October.

    This is because “City Hall and TfL have sort to work constructively behind the scenes with the government to negotiate a long term settlement that would benefit London and the whole of our country,” he said.

    “We’d hoped for an announcement about additional funding in the Treasury’s recent spending review but nothing materialised.

    “With no apparent movement from ministers and time fast running out before TfL's temporary funding deal comes to an end on the 11 December, I feel it is my duty as mayor to start sounding the alarm.”

    The government has paid nearly £4bn in bailouts to keep TfL services running during the coronavirus pandemic.

  6. Tourism campaign brings in '£70m to London economy'

    Tourism in London

    The mayor of London's Let’s Do London campaign has brought in an estimated £70m to London’s economy over the summer, City Hall figures suggest.

    The £6m campaign was seen by 280,000 tourists who ended up taking a trip to London, according to polling carried out for the mayor.

    Described at its launch as the “biggest domestic tourism campaign” London has ever seen, the City Hall initiative was designed to attract visitors back to London.

    Speaking at City Hall on Wednesday, Allen Simpson, acting chief executive of London’s investment, trade and promotional agency London and Partners, said the scheme "had a roughly £70m impact on the tourism sector in terms of increased spend".

    Mr Simpson said: “The Let’s Do London campaign has, I think, been very necessary and very effective."

    Polling had identified how many people were aware of the Let’s Do London campaign ahead of their visits to the capital, Mr Simpson said.

    The £70m was calculated by multiplying the number of people who said they visited London because of the campaign by the average length of stay – 2.3 days – and the average daily spend – £107.

    Further events under the Let’s Do London campaign are planned over the remainder of the autumn and winter months, including lights displays and festive themed fun.
