§ Mr. Pardoe
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what was the total sum paid by motorists in motoring taxation in the latest year for which figures are available in the United Kingdom, the United States of America, France and Germany, what it was as a percentage of each country's gross national product; and how much and what percentage of it was spent on the roads, from figures available to him from international sources.
§ Mr. Taverne
I regret this information is not available. Neither the United Nations nor the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development collects separate figures for motoring taxation or for expenditure on roads.
