Private Members' Bill to overturn the ULEZ expansion

Dartford borders the London Borough of Bexley, and I have been a vocal opponent of the Labour Mayor charging residents £12.50 a day as part of the ULEZ expansion.

I was recently selected as 13th in the Private Members' Bill ballot and I announced that my Bill is to overturn the ULEZ expansion in London which came into force in August 2023.  

I presented The Greater London Low Emission Zone Charging (Amendment) Bill to Parliament on 6th December 2023 and the second reading will take place on 22nd March 2024.
