Government Electrifies Cabbies’ Green Revolution

Today has been a victory for campaigners for common sense. The Government has bowed to demands to remove a 'luxury car tax' from the new zero emission taxi. The Government will bring forward the exemption of the new electric taxi from Vehicle Excise Duty from April 2019 to next month.

This is a measure that will help save cabbies who buy the new vehicle £1,550 - helping the trade do its bit in reducing air pollution. Londoners will be seeing more cleaner, greener cabs on the streets of London and I support this step in the right direction by the Government. I hope this great result shows that the taxi trade has a strong voice here in Parliament that is delivering results. 

Watch me discuss this important victory here.
