'Londoners are going to be inconvenienced as a direct consequence of Boris Johnson's big programme of staff cuts and his broken promise on ticket office closures.

'Boris Johnson gave a cast-iron commitment on protecting ticket office opening hours which he has spectacularly broken, hitting outer London hardest, where 90% of the stations affected are located.

'The Mayor's office wants Londoners to believe that this is about a handful of stations where less than ten tickets are sold every hour, but these account for a tiny fraction of the dozens of stations affected by the cuts.

'Boris Johnson gave a fantasy promise to negotiate a no-strike deal with the underground unions but has never once met the unions to discuss it. His policy for employee relations on the tube is a mess and his calls on the government to bail him out by banning strikes show the weakness of his administration. It is a distraction from the real issue which is the need for the Mayor to bust a gut through talks to resolve this dispute so that Londoners are not inconvenienced."
