Headline

Garden Bridge risks were ‘downplayed’ to please Boris Johnson

Comment

While there is nothing new or revelationary in this report, it is worth reading for those who have followed this whole debacle for how it concentrates on that key period of Johnson's directive to soften the payment requirements and the consequential decision by Trustees to sign a huge contract, which has still not been made public. This also reads as a final line on the matter by the Assembly, and is a clear call for Meg Hillier and the Parliamentary Accounts Commission to pick up the baton and use all the documentation that has come from City Hall and elsewhere to use their stronger powers of summons and scrutiny to fully investigate and hold to account.
