Caroline Pidgeon, Liberal Democrat London Assembly Member, has criticised the "utter folly" of the Garden Bridge project and called on the Charity Commission to investigate.
Commenting on the publication today by TfL of the costs incurred by the project, Caroline said:
“The Mayor and TfL should not be boasting about being transparent in publishing this information.
“What has been published today should have been in the public domain many months ago. It clearly has only been released today due to the London Assembly using its legal powers to summons documents from TfL.
Commenting further on the details of the expenditure:
“The details of wasted money spent on the Garden Bridge project is the final confirmation of the utter folly of the project.
“The Garden Bridge have squandered public money in a way no responsible charity should have behaved.
“No charity needs to spend £160,000 on a website or over £400,000 on a gala dinner.
“Having recklessly spent so much public money it is now time that the Charity Commission fully investigated their actions.”
