HC Deb 11 July 2002 vol 388 cc1111-2W
Mr. Kidney

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what changes he plans to make to his policy on road user charging for inter-urban motorway and trunk roads in response to the prospective opening of the M6 toll road in 2004. [68080]

Mr. Jamieson

There are no plans to introduce inter-urban road user charging, but we shall want to see what lessons can be learned from practical experience with charging schemes, including the national scheme for lorries announced by the Chancellor of the Exchequer in his most recent Budget.
