Caroline Pidgeon has responded to the Mayor of London's consultation on proposals to improve air quality in London.
While welcoming some of the Mayor’s proposals her submission urges the Mayor to move more quickly in introducing a new Emissions Surcharge (the so-called T-charge). Her submission also stresses the need for far higher emissions standards than those currently proposed for the T-charge. Other recommendations made by Caroline include urging TfL to directly procure a fleet of zero emission capable taxis and then leasing or selling them to taxis and drivers.
