Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Road Transport Emissions (19 Oct 2017)

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Road Transport Emissions (19 Oct 2017)

Jesse Norman: I can only admire the hon. Lady’s ingenuity in crowbarring a point about Virgin rail into a question about road transport emissions. Obviously the rail Minister, my hon.

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Strategic Road Network: Congestion (19 Oct 2017)

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Strategic Road Network: Congestion (19 Oct 2017)

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Bridge Tolls (19 Oct 2017)

Jesse Norman: It is Government policy that those who benefit from the significant improvements that estuarial crossings bring should help to pay for them. Successive Governments have taken the view that tolls are justified when private finance enables key road infrastructure such as significant river crossings to proceed and to be maintained.

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Bridge Tolls (19 Oct 2017)

Jesse Norman: I am not aware of having rejected any previous invitation. I would be delighted to meet the hon. Gentleman and his constituents. The Government’s position is very clear. We intend that the tolls will go when the bridge has been paid for. Unfortunately, when crossings are being tolled, there has to be equality, because otherwise the untolled bridge ends up being loaded up to the point...
