Brian Whittle should recognise that the money that is raised from low-emission zone fines is for the purpose of local transport provision.

Therefore, if the authority makes active travel a specific provision when it sets up the low-emission zone, the money is committed for that purpose. That is how the schemes have been designed and the legislation ensures that the provision is applied, if it is one of the objectives that a local authority sets.
