STOP THE EXPANSION OF THE ULTRA LOW EMISSION ZONE

Labour’s Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan has confirmed plans to charge drivers of older vehicles £12.50 a day to drive within an expanded Ultra Low Emission Zone from October 2021.
This means, for example, if you live in Chingford you could be charged £12.50 to visit Whipps Cross Hospital.
Emissions are falling and this measure will make no difference to pollution in the long term. It will also penalise older people and those in low paid jobs, who cannot afford to buy new vehicles.
WE, THE UNDERSIGNED, ASK THE MAYOR OF LONDON TO REVERSE THIS DECISION.
£780million will be spent on this scheme which could go on targeted schemes with better outcomes, such as replacing the entire bus fleet, instead of on penalising the poorest and must vulnerable residents of London.
