The recent White Paper indicates the start of serious attention to the use of road-use pricing, while the hard edge of the argument is to be found in the Treasury's Comprehensive Spending Review. What has yet to be examined is the problem of equipping the nation's vehicles with the necessary devices, effective for the purpose over the whole country. This could be done by replacing the paper 'tax disc' with a standardised electronic tag - carrying stored credit-units - which could provide for road-use payments as and where they come to be introduced.
