HC Deb 06 March 1998 vol 307 c779W
Mr. Vaz

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions if he will make a statement on the Government's policy regarding toll roads. [31667]

Ms Glenda Jackson

The Government are currently reviewing all aspects of transport policy as part of their commitment towards developing an integrated transport policy. One issue being addressed is whether to make greater use of the price mechanism, for instance through road user charging, to influence travel choice. The forthcoming Transport White Paper will set out our conclusions on this issue in the context of our overall objectives towards a sustainable transport system.
