I liked the format as it was short and to the point with many different opinions and aspects addressed which kept the concentration levels high. I particularly enjoyed Ian Wainwright from TFL's speech and it was nice to have a brief chat with him afterwards. I feel that, even whilst one can disagree with their plans, it is extremely important to keep dialogue with TFL as I feel they wish to help all parties' concerns. We would also like to know more about the Trailblazers apprenticeship scheme which seems another great idea. Rob Scott FIoC GLH
