HC Deb 20 March 1990 vol 169 c540W
Mr. Adley

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport which European countries have implemented a policy of charging tolls for use of public roads.

Mr. Atkins

[holding answer 19 March 1990]: European countries which have recently constructed toll-financed roads, bridges or tunnels, or are planning to do so, include Austria, France, Irish Republic, Italy, Norway, Portugal, Spain and the United Kingdom. In Switzerland, access to the motorway network requires a supplementary licence (vignette), which may be regarded as a form of toll.
