HC Deb 17 December 1980 vol 996 c228W
Dr. Glyn

asked the Minister of Transport (1) what consideration he has given to the taxation of the ownership of vehicles; what representations he has received on this subject; and what proportion of these have been against the proposal;

(2) if, in his examination of alternative forms of vehicle taxation, he will in view of the practical difficulties, reject the option of taxation on ownership;

(3) what steps his Department is taking to make the present system of vehicle licensing less liable to avoidance.

Mr. Norman Fowler

I shall answer these questions shortly.
