Claire’s talk will focus on the politics of establishing a national road pricing scheme. Greener Transport Solutions has recently published a proposal for a national road pricing scheme as supplementary written evidence to the Transport Select Committee Inquiry into Zero Emissions Vehicles and Road Pricing. The key question is how we get from here to implementation, in other words, political deliverability.
