Last night, Cardiff Labour refused to support a motion calling on them to rule out a congestion charge for the capital. 

Instead of backing a Conservative motion calling on the Council to rule out such a charge, Cardiff Labour amended the motion. 

Nowhere in their amendment did Cardiff Labour rule out introducing a congestion charge for the city. 

The Labour Cabinet Member for Transport also said, when closing the debate, that he would not rule such a move out. 

Commenting, Andrew RT Davies said: 

“A congestion charge for Cardiff would be a penny pinching tax on the city which would punish hard working residents and Cardiff businesses. 

“High streets across Wales are struggling, and they need a friend. 

“Unfortunately, Cardiff Labour have proven themselves unwilling to be that friend.”
