Motion text

That this House notes that London commuter fares have become the most expensive in the world and are an ever increasing pressure on Londoners' household budgets while real wages are falling and bills are rising; further notes that since 2008 the cost of a single bus journey in London has increased by 56 per cent and that a zone one to six travel card is £400 a year more expensive; further notes that Transport for London has reported unbudgeted operational surpluses for the previous three years and is showing evidence of regularly under-anticipating fares income and over estimating other expenditures; and calls on the Mayor of London to use his discretion to freeze fares at RPI for 2014, easing the pressure on ordinary Londoners during the current cost of living crisis.
