Roads: Tolls

Volume 470: debated on Friday 25 January 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what recent discussions she has had with (a) the Prime Minister and (b) the Chancellor of the Exchequer on the national roll-out of road pricing. (181975)

My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State speaks regularly to both the Prime Minister and the Chancellor about transport issues across the range of her responsibilities.

We continue to take forward work on road pricing, notably supporting local authorities in the development of local pricing schemes, and working with industry to explore how more advanced technologies might support schemes on a wider scale in due course. No decisions have been taken on national road pricing.
