In 2008, the people of Greater Manchester decisively rejected Labour's plans for a congestion charge in a referendum.
Here in Bury, a massive 79% of people voted against the plans.
Now we hear that Labour-controlled Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM) has been making secret plans to re-introduce congestion charging by the back door - as reported by the BBC and by the Manchester Evening News.
We need to stop these plans right now.
We need to improve our public transport services, not punish local people for using their cars. Many residents rely on their cars for work, education and for visiting family, and it is wrong to punish them for doing so, especially as many do not have an alternative option.
We said no in the referendum - we meant it. Sign my petition to send a clear message that local people do not want to pay a congestion charge
