§ Mr. Ridley
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government if he will seek to amend the Highways Act. 1959, so that railway undertakers cease to be exempt from road charges.
§ Mr. Skeffington
Railway undertakers are never exempted from road charges under the 1875 code and are exempted under the 1892 code only where their property derives no benefit from the street works. I see no reason to withdraw this exemption.
