ABSTRACT
This article reports that Paul Boateng, financial secretary to the treasury of Great Britain, has announced further details about the government's plans to modernise the taxation of the haulage industry. He said, during a meeting with representatives from the haulage industry and environmental, motoring and business organizations, that the government is committed to ensuring that hauliers from overseas pay their fair share for using roads in Great Britain. The government has decided to introduce a new road-user charge that will be related to the distance travelled on roads and will apply to truck operators using rods regardless of their nationality. The government is also planning to ensure that the haulage industry players of the country will not pay any more as a result of this charge by introducing offsetting tax reductions when the charge is introduced. The government aims to introduce this new charge in 2005 or 2006.
