HC Deb 05 July 1978 vol 953 c204W
71. Mr. John H. Osborn

asked the Secretary of State for Transport whether it is his policy to continue with the present system of road vehicle registration; and what consideration he has given to abolishing the present system of vehicle road fund licences.

Mr.William Rodgers

A system of vehicle registration will continue to be required. The replacement of vehicle excise duty by other forms of taxation has been considered on a number of occasions.
