Responding to TFL plans to close every ticket office in London by 2015, Sadiq Khan Shadow London Minister said:

“The Mayor of London has today completely broken a manifesto promise to the people of London. As a result of his plans to drastically reduce the number of staff in TFL stations, Londoners will feel more anxious travelling at times when stations may be deserted. It will also mean commuters will have nowhere to turn when their oyster card is lost, stolen or broken. It will make the daily commute more difficult for everyone but more worryingly, there are serious concerns about whether there will be enough staff at London’s busy stations to respond in emergency situations. We support introducing more flexibility to the way TFL staff work, but the Mayor is using this as an excuse to cut staffing levels, which is reckless and irresponsible.”
