HC Deb 27 February 2003 vol 400 cc647-8W
Mr. Redwood

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport in cases where regional strategic guidance includes congestion taxes for a particular town or city, what requirement will be placed on the Council in that place to introduce a congestion charge. [93604]

Mr. Spellar

Decisions on whether to introduce such measures and the form they take, are a matter for individual local authorities.
