Answer for T-Charge (2)

Answered By: 
The Mayor

Improving our air quality will improve the health of Londoners, which will in turn deliver economic benefits.  Not only will it reduce the burden on the National Health Service, but it will also make the capital a more attractive city for businesses to invest in and tourists to visit.

An Integrated Impact Assessment was undertaken as part of the consultation. This identified that, at the macro level, the Emissions Surcharge is not expected to cause any material financial negative impact on London's businesses.
