Transport for London (TfL) is working closely with City Hall on the proposals for the low income scrappage scheme, such as the eligibility criteria, application and delivery processes. The aim is to launch the scheme later this year. This is a scheme being developing from scratch and it is right that the appropriate time is taken in designing it to ensure that the funding available is targeted at and benefits those who need it most. I have written to the Rt Hon Amber Rudd MP and the Rt Hon Michael Gove MP seeking their assistance to verify eligibility to the scheme and to provide match funding. The scheme will be ready to support low income Londoners well ahead of the expansion of the ULEZ to inner London in October 2021.
