§ Mr. Rendel
To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions what plans he has to revise the current list of charges which local authorities can make. 
§ Mr. Raynsford
We are currently consulting local authority and business interests on draft Regulations allowing local authorities to recover costs for certain highway and transport services. I have placed a copy of the consultation version of the Regulations in the Library of the House. We hope to lay the Regulations before the summer recess.
