Night tube delay should give 'breathing space' for negotiation - Len Duvall AM

Commenting on reports that the introduction of the night tube may be delayed, Leader of the London Assembly Labour Group Len Duvall AM said:

“By speculatively announcing a start date without any consultation with the people expected to run the service Boris Johnson’s gung-ho approach has led to disputes, disruption and now delay.

“It’s been clear for a long time that the problems facing the night tube would not be easily overcome so in a sense a delay isn’t a major surprise. I hope this delay will provide the breathing space necessary for unions and management to sit down and negotiate a resolution to this dispute without the need for further disruption to passengers. 

“From the outset Boris Johnson has treated the night tube as more of a publicity stunt despite it being a deeply complex project.”
