Andy Mayer appears on talkTV

IEA Chief Operating Officer and Energy Analyst Andy Mayer has appeared on talkTV to discuss the proposed expansion of London’s Ultra-Low Emissions Zone.

Andy said:

“This is a £3,000 per year poll tax on white van man and school run mum (…) this is looking at trying to fill a hole in the finances of Transport for London (…) what it’s really about is that massive £3-4 billion per year hole that the Mayor created early in his tenure. He decided to freeze fares so that everybody else would subsidise those using public transport,”
