LCCI respond to TfL long-term funding deal delay

Tuesday 22 February 2022

Richard Burge, Chief Executive of London Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI), said:

“The ongoing dispute between the Government and Transport for London (TfL) is nothing short of negligence. London relies on its public transport network like no other city in the UK, yet our preeminent global city has become a political football in order to hold London hostage. This is tantamount to a punishment beating for our capital city; no other country requires its major city to fund its transport system to the extent we are required to in London, nor do they inflict high fare burdens on businesses and leisure visitors. For commuters, fares have become a tax on an already taxed income. Our government’s conduct has been disgraceful and London deserves better.”
