Dartford Crossing Tolls

Volume 532: debated on Wednesday 14 September 2011

With your leave, Mr Deputy Speaker, I should like to present this petition, which is supported by almost 2,000 readers of the Dartford Messenger newspaper and by myself. It states:

The Petition of residents of Dartford and readers of the Dartford Messenger newspaper,

Declares that the Petitioners are opposed to any increase in tolls charged for the Dartford Crossing.

The Petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges the Department for Transport not to increase tolls on the Dartford Crossing and to reconsider the emergency measures to lift the barriers during severe congestion and extend the local residents discount scheme.

And the Petitioners remain, etc.
