Capital City FoundationA Policy Exchange Project
Last autumn, in a paper for Policy Exchange’s Capital City Foundation, Nick Ferrari became the first commentator to suggest that the Mayor of London use the renewal of Uber’s operating licence to make the firm behave better. Ferrari does not support last week’s remarkable decision by the London Mayoralty to remove the licence entirely. But, writing for Policy Exchange, he argues that the outcome he advocated — a new licence, under strict conditions — remains perhaps the likeliest ending of this significant Big Tech v Government struggle.
Richard Howard, Head of Policy Exchange’s Environment & Energy Unit, provides a critique of the Mayor of London’s new plan of measures to tackle air pollution in the capital.
