Read our response to the Mayor’s ‘polluter pays’ diesel emissions charge announcement for London https://t.co/Frsjg9sn5E

Bridget Fox, Sustainable Transport Campaigner, Campaign for Better Transport said: "This is a welcome step from the Mayor of London. For too long, London has suffered from lethal and illegal levels of air pollution, most of it from motor vehicles. We have passed the time for debate and urgently need action. The t-charge is a sensible step, based on the polluter pays principle, and good news for the health of everyone who visits, works and lives in London. “It is also vital this initiative is backed up with more investment in better public transport, walking and cycling routes to give people a real alternative to using their car.” Ends For further information please contact Richard Watkins, Press Officer, at Campaign for Better Transport on 020 7566 6494 / 07984 773468 richard.watkins@bettertransport.org.uk Notes to editors Read more about the Mayor’s t-charge proposal here...
