Lorries: Tolls

Volume 474: debated on Wednesday 2 April 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what recent consideration has been given to the possibility of introducing a vignette to charge lorries for road use; and if she will make a statement. (195828)

As announced in Budget 2008, the Government will not be progressing a vignette scheme at this stage. This decision was informed by the freight data feasibility study which found that all options considered, including a vignette, offered limited safety, congestion and environmental benefits. The conclusions of the study will be published shortly.
