To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, if he will make it his policy to reduce fuel duty and vehicle excise duty income streams and replace that income with revenue from inter-urban road pricing in a manner that is revenue neutral for the average motorist.
The Government is committed to achieving net-zero carbon emissions by 2050 and the transition towards electric vehicles and the phase out of new petrol and diesel cars and vans will make a vital contribution to this.
As we move forward with this transition, we will need to ensure that revenue from motoring taxes keeps pace with this change, so that we can continue to fund the first-class public services and infrastructure that people and families across the UK expect.
The Government has not set out that it will introduce road pricing. Any changes to the tax system will be considered by the Chancellor and any further steps will be announced in due course.
