HC Deb 06 February 1984 vol 53 c441W
2. Mr. Parris

asked the Secretary of State for Transport if he has yet formed conclusions arising from the consultative paper more closely aligning vehicle excise duty for heavy goods with their true track costs.

Mr. Ridley

As I recently indicated to my hon. Friend the Member for Newport, West (Mr. Robinson), I expect to announce my conclusions on track costs shortly, but it will be for my right hon. Friend the Chancellor to decide on vehicle excise duty rates in the Budget.
