Responding to the Government and Transport for London agreeing a short-term funding package to keep London’s transport network moving, LCCI Chief Executive, Richard Burge, said:
“London’s chamber of commerce community welcome TfL’s funding extension and the network continuing to move during these challenging months.
“We are particularly glad to see that the proposal to expand the Congestion Charge zone has been dropped.
“It’s vital now that as we look to Spring in the hope of coming out of business survival mode and instead look to economic recovery, that negotiations between all parties are non-partisan and conditions appropriate for that point in time.
“It isn’t about London being special, it’s about London being essential to the UK’s economic recovery.”
