Earlier today I attended a Merseytravel Committee which had a report about Mersey tunnel tolls. The report was for information and it appeared that the Chairman of the committee was reluctant to allow any discussion as it will be the budget meeting of the Authority on 9th February that will determine what the payable tolls will be. However I used the opportunity to move an amendment asking the Directors to investigate the possibility of reducing tolls further, sadly all the Labour Members on the Authority including the Wirral Labour Councillors voted against my amendment! An opportunity losT
While I was at the meeting Merseytravel tweeted that tolls would not rise. I thought Councillors made the decisions, not Media Officers?
