Lewes MP: Road tolls are inevitable
2:05pm Monday 24th September 2012 in News
A transport minister has predicted the end of road tax and the increased use of toll roads as inevitable.
Lewes MP Norman Baker reportedly told the Daily Mail that a national system of road charging for every mile travelled was inevitable.
Mr Baker is reported to have said as motorists moved to greener cars such as electric vehicles, all parties would have to respond in changing the current method of taxation.
As part of the proposals, vehicle excise duty would be abolished and fuel duties lowered.
