Fact Check: Polling Shows a Strong Majority of Londoners oppose the expansion of the ULEZ

The claim:

“Plurality of Londoners Support Expanding London’s Ultra Low Emissions Zone (ULEZ)”


The polling asks questions in a couple of different ways, but when Londoners were straightforwardly asked their “preferred course of action for London’s ULEZ” just 32% favoured the ULEZ being “expanded to include the entirety of London”. In comparison 37% supported the ULEZ being “kept to its current inner London boundaries” and 22% favoured the ULEZ being “scrapped entirely”.

Contrary to the headline claim, less than a third of Londoners polled favoured ULEZ expansion and a strong majority opposed the expansion of the ULEZ.
