THE Labour Mayor of Hackney, Philip Glanville, has hit out at Boris Johnson’s Conservative government for demanding that TfL must raise fares above inflation and widen the cost and scope of the congestion charge as part of its funding package to keep the transport operator running.

Mayor Glanville said it was ‘deeply unfair’ for the Tory Government to seek to balance TfL’s books on the backs of London’s commuters after a 90 per cent fall in fares revenue during the coronavirus crisis saw London’s transport operator need Government financial support.
