§ Mr. Tony Banks
asked the Secretary of State for Transport if his Department has settled the invoice for £827,100 issued by the London residuary body in respect of value added tax on traffic control work undertaken by the road assessment unit.
§ Mr. Peter Bottomley
No. Traffic control work carried out by the London residuary body for the Department of Transport under the provisions of paragraph 10 of schedule 5 to the Local Government Act 1985 does not attract value added tax.
