The Secretary of State confirmed in a letter to the Mayor of London on 1 June 2021, that any proposal to transfer Vehicle Excise Duty from the Exchequer to TfL is, in effect, a permanent Government Grant.

The Government has provided over £4 billion of financial support to Transport for London since the start of the pandemic. These deals are proof of our commitment to moving TfL onto a more financially sustainable footing, with a target date for achieving financial sustainability of April 2023.
