HC Deb 15 April 1964 vol 693 c72W
51. Mr. Gresham Cooke

asked the Minister of Transport whether, in connection with his future road programme, he will give an assurance that none of the new roads involved will be selected to bear a special tax in the form of a toll for payment by those using them.

Mr. Marples

No. It would be wrong to prejudge the outcome of the studies that are still proceeding.

Mr. Wingfield Digby

asked the Minister of Transport whether he has yet reached a decision on the detailed examination of charging tolls on later motorways.

Mr. Marples

No. Detailed traffic studies are still under way and it will be some time before we shall have all the information needed for a decision.
