Roads: Tolls

Volume 487: debated on Wednesday 4 February 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport with reference to the answer to the hon. Member for Chipping Barnet of 24 November 2008, Official Report, column 1105W, on tolls, whether the local authorities in road pricing demonstration project areas were consulted about the decision to conduct the demonstrations in their areas. (253514)

Neither the Government nor their contractors have consulted the local authorities whose boundaries will be used as the framework for data collection within this research project, nor is there a requirement to do so. The locations for the trial activity chosen by our contractors will have no bearing on the project results.
