Answered By: 
The Mayor

TfL has held discussions with the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and a number of embassies about payment of the Congestion Charge. As a result of these discussions, a number of previously non-paying embassies are now paying the Charge. We continue to have engagement with non-paying embassies about this matter and will continue to do so.
