Grant Shapps is planning to slap a Tory Transport Tax on all households in Richmond Borough to balance TfL's books. However, he is not asking commuters from outside London to pay their fair share.
This is another disastrous policy from Mr Shapps which, in addition to his plans to extend the congestion charge to the South Circular and to scrap free travel for Under 18s, will hit local residents hard in the pocket when they're already reeling from the financial impact of Covid19.
Twickenham and Richmond Liberal Democrats are united in their opposition to Grant Shapps' Tory Transport Tax.
Please sign our petition against the Tory Transport Tax and make your voice heard.
We, the undersigned, call on the government to scrap their plans to slap a Tory Transport Tax on all households in Richmond Borough to balance TfL's books.
