HC Deb 04 December 1989 vol 163 c84W
12. Mr. Kennedy

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what his policy is with regard to the use of tolls on the road infrastructure network; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Atkins

Tolls have been levied to finance certain costly estuarial crossings which provide exceptional benefits for users. In addition, tolls will be a means of paying for privately-financed roads.
