Written answers (Question to Transport)

I have no plans to introduce a levy on heavy goods vehicles.

For the Deputy's information consideration is being given to the introduction of a pay as you go motor tax regime for HGVs. I draw his attention to my response to Parliamentary Question 964 of May 27th.
