Question for Department for Transport

UIN 199783, tabled on 9 June 2014

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, how much was raised through the implementation of the UK HGV Road User Levy Act 2013 in Northern Ireland in April 2014.

Answered on

12 June 2014

The HGV Road User Levy applies to the UK.  Once a levy is purchased for a foreign registered HGV, it is not possible to assign the levy to the specific country (England, Wales, Scotland or Northern Ireland) which the vehicle visits.  By the end of April 2014, levy receipts from foreign HGVs visiting the UK were £7.2 million.  Cumulative levy receipts from foreign HGVs at the end of May were £10.5 million.
