TfL legal staff set for cuts in cost-saving move
Transport for London (TfL) is poised to make efficiency savings which could see a number of its legal staff made redundant. The organisation's 10-year business plan, launched last year with the aim of saving more than £2.4bn, could see members of the legal division lose their jobs.TfL's legal arm, which is led by general counsel Howard Carter, currently has 43 members of staff. In addition, TfL entities London Underground (LU) and Crossrail have separate legal divisions, numbering 66 and three staff respectively. It has been reported that the job losses across TfL as a whole are expected to reach 1,000.
