Zero emission vehicles and road pricing

Inquiry

This inquiry will consider the implications of accelerating the shift to zero emission vehicles and the potential for introducing road pricing, or pay-as-you-drive, schemes.

The Transport Committee was one of the six commissioning committees behind the first UK-wide Climate Assembly, which published its report in September 2020. The Assembly put the emphasis on moving to electric vehicles and improving public transport rather than large reductions in car use. It also called for solutions which are accessible and affordable to all sections of society.

Following the first session we split the inquiry into two parts. Our further oral evidence sessions on road pricing are available here.
