London Assembly Member candidate calls for a "stop" to Khan's proposed Outer London road tax charges
Conservative London Assembly Member candidate, Peter Fortune, is calling on members of the public to put a stop to the Mayor of London Sadiq Khan's ‘Outer London’ road tax proposals, which will charge drivers up to £5.50 a day to enter Bexley and Bromley from outside the capital.
In a public statement, Fortune said: “Every day, people from Dartford, Sevenoaks, Surrey and Kent, drive into Bexley and Bromley. They're our friends and family. They work in our hospitals and schools. And they shop in our high streets and support our local businesses.
“Sadiq Khan's proposed daily boundary charge would penalise people driving into Greater London. It would hammer our friends and family, public services, and small businesses.
“We can't let Sadiq Khan get away with his Outer London tax. Sign the petition. Share it with a friend. Stop Sadiq Khan's new tax.”
Peter Fortune is currently standing to be the next Conservative London Assembly Member for Bexley and Bromley.
He added: “If you elect me on the 6 May 2021, I will be a strong voice for you in the London Assembly. And I will fight to get Bexley and Bromley a better deal from City Hall.“
