Returning to the question, it seems to me that there are actually two questions within this. One is about the precept and the budget, and the other one is about whether extending the Congestion Charge should be a priority.
Taking the first, we are going to have a lengthy budget debate in the next month or so, and we do not need to go through that in detail now. But I think we should be clear, and I am seeking your confirmation or refutation of this, if you like, that a question that suggests whether or not the Congestion Charge is extended in west London is fundamental to the scale of precept in London is just mistaken. The precept is all about policing and police budgets.
The second part of that is that the funding of the Congestion Charge is far more dependent on the transport spending review outcome than it is on the budget debate. I think it is worth shooting that fox now, and being clear that the budget debate is fundamentally about policing in London.
