HC Deb 09 February 1993 vol 218 c577W
Mr. Llwyd

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport if he will make a statement outlining his Department's position on proposals for a common EC motorway usage charge for goods vehicles.

Mr. Kenneth Carlisle

No such proposals have been made. The Transport Council has, however, been considering a draft directive which among other things sets out the conditions on which individual member states may, if they wish, levy tolls or other user charges on heavy goods vehicles for the use of their motorways. At its last meeting on 21 December the Council was unable to reach any agreement on this draft.

Forward to
