I have asked TfL to undertake a review of discounts and exemptions to the Congestion Charge. This includes a review of the discount given to vehicles which use alternative fuels and whether there is now a better way to apply a discount for 'greener' vehicles while at the same time ensuring that the primary purpose of reducing congestion and traffic levels in central London is maintained.

TfL will report to me in December on the findings and until that time I do not want to speculate about any potential changes. Any proposed changes to discounts and exemptions would be subject to public consultation.
