Travel to Work Tax

This afternoon I have been down in Salford at a meeting of Conservative Councillors and Parliamentary Candidates with Theresa Villiers MP (Shadow Secretary of State for Transport) to discuss the proposed poll on the Congestion Charge or Travel to Work Tax as it is incresingly becoming referred to.
All ten boroughs from across Greater Manchester were invited and everyone had the opportunity to explain the current position in their area. The one thing that became crystal clear is that whilst the Conservatives are united in their opposition to the new tax it seems Labour are divided across Greater Manchester as to whether they support it or not. I welcome the fact that residents throughout Greater Manchester will be given the opportunity to democratically record their view.
