holding answer 9 March 2007

The Government called for a national debate on road pricing in 2005 and this is now happening.

While no decision has been taken on whether in the future to establish a national scheme of road pricing, the Government are working with interested local authorities who are exploring the scope for developing local schemes as part of a wider package of transport measures, to tackle local congestion.

It is only in the light of the development of such schemes that any decision about national road pricing could be considered.
