Motion text

That this House is concerned at the growing disparity between cash fares and Oyster card fares on London transport; believes this to be ill-conceived and contrary to efforts to bring new or occasional passengers onto London's tube and buses; believes this to be particularly unfair on tourists and visitors to this great city; and questions in particular the need for Mayor Livingstone to increase single cash bus fares from 60p to £2 during his time in power.

OYSTER CARD AND CASH FARES ON LONDON TRANSPORT (Amendment 1)
leave out from `House' to end and add `welcomes the spectacular success of the Oyster Card and the Freedom Pass which is one of the most efficient mass IT schemes in Europe; and believes the disparity with cash fares is insignificant to occasional users and an incentive for greater use of the Oyster Card by frequent travellers.'.
