In a new report released by The Institute For Public Policy Research, the new Mayor Sadiq Khan has issued an announcement that buckles down on all diesel cars that do not meet the legal air quality obligations. London motorists who drive through London, will from next year have to pay an additional £10, as part of Khan’s new Toxicity Charge, also known as the ‘T-Charge’.
