Statement in response to the Mayor of London's letter

, Garden Bridge Trust

Lord Mervyn Davies, Chairman of the Garden Bridge Trust, said:

"We received the Mayor's letter with great regret today. We will study the contents of the letter in detail before responding formally. The Garden Bridge Trust was set up at the request of Transport for London and the Department of Transport to deliver the project which had received public money. We have had enormous support from our funders and are very confident we can raise the remaining funds required. But sadly the Mayor of London has taken a different decision to those in place when the project started.”
