To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what plans his Department has for introducing toll charging on the M62 motorway. (98066)

The Government have no plans to introduce charging on the M62. In line with their manifesto commitment, the Government are exploring the scope for developing a national system of road pricing. We are also working with local authorities as they develop local schemes which will tackle an existing or emerging congestion problem.
