Tolls: Lancashire

Volume 458: debated on Tuesday 13 March 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport whether he plans to introduce a pilot scheme for road charging in Lancashire; and if he will make a statement. (125240)

It would be for Lancashire to decide whether to put forward proposals for a local road pricing pilot scheme. 10 areas have been awarded pump-priming funding to support the development of Transport Innovation Fund packages that address local congestion problems by combining demand management, including road pricing, with better public transport. Lancashire is not one of these areas.
