Today I joined colleagues in opposing the Mayor’s proposed border tax. Those who live near the border of Greater London will now face the prospect of a £31 charge to travel across the border. This will be detrimental to our community and local businesses, and it is unfair to all those who work in and use our local shops, schools and healthcare services.
The Mayor will shortly enter into negotiations with the Department for Transport on a fresh bailout package for TfL. However, it is unacceptable that he should enter these negotiations while trying to make the threat of these extreme measures.
You can read the letter that I co-signed with my London colleagues below.
