Motor tax cuts could follow road pricing plans
Road pricing scheme should be revenue neutral, says Whitehall insider
Motoring taxation could be cut, despite the
plan for a nationwide road pricing scheme.
A Whitehall insider told the FT that a national road pricing scheme
could pave the way for changes to the current car tax regime, suggesting a
reduction in vehicle excise duty.
‘We’ve always said that, if we did it, it would be a revenue-neutral
exercise,’ the insider said.
