A single extension is what we are talking about right now. The alternative that was most discussed was two separate zones. There is not much to choose between them, frankly, except at the margins. I am content to go with the proposal that is on the table at the moment. I think the Mayor has said before that he is going to be listening, and in a certain sense reserving his final view, which he should be if we are going to take consultation seriously.
