Response to Autumn statement from Ken Livingstone
As Chancellor George Osborne confirmed fares will rise by 6% in London next year, Ken Livingstone said:
"What Londoners need is a fares cut, and a commitment to hold down the fares - not George Osborne and Boris Johnson confirming yet another big fare increase.
"Today's announcement by the Tory Mayor and Tory Chancellor means rising travelcard costs and no end in sight for farepayers.
"George Osborne and Boris Johnson have shown complete ignorance of the pressures on ordinary people but I will cut fares and set a course that ensures a fairer deal for Londoners."
