Question

On 4th September you announced that consultations on your proposals for a "Safer Lorry Charge" will begin in early 2014.  Two weeks later another cyclist fatality occurred in a collision with a tipper truck. It is clear that London's roads do not offer cyclists sufficient safety. Will you now agree to bring forward this consultation as a matter of urgency?
