In the very first Prime Minister's Question upon Parliament's return, Louie French MP for Old Bexley and Sidcup used the opportunity to continue the fight against ULEZ, highlighting how the regressive and unacceptable tax will now hammer millions of working people with bills of £12.50 per day, or £4,500 per year.
In his question, Louie stated:
"The Labour party used to claim that it represents working-class people, but Labour’s ultra low emission zone expansion to Greater London will now hammer millions of working people with bills of £12.50 per day, or £4,500 per year. Does the Prime Minister agree that it is unacceptable that Londoners and those in surrounding counties face this regressive and unacceptable tax, and will he do everything that he can to help working people?"
In response the Prime Minister stated:
"I agree with my hon. Friend. It is disappointing that last week the Labour leader allowed the Labour Mayor to introduce ULEZ, charging hard-working people £12.50 every time they start their car, adding to the burden of the cost of living. All I can say is that while we focus on helping hard-working families, all the Labour leader does is punish them."
