LPG conversion for London Cabs

Meeting:

Mayor's Question Time

Date:

Question 2016/3860

Main question

Leonie Cooper

Measures such as the Emission Surcharge demonstrate your ambition to get the most polluting vehicles off London's roads as soon as possible. Converting old diesel cabs to LPG could also help to deliver significant emissions. Will the Mayor consider a loan scheme or fund to help cabbies convert the most polluting vehicles to LPG, which would help to clean up London's air in the short term and could pay itself back through significant fuel cost savings?

Officers are drafting a response which will be sent shortly.
