Motion: Heavy Goods Vehicle Levy
That this Assembly expresses concern at the implications of the Heavy Goods Vehicle Levy being introduced by the Department for Transport; notes with concern the deeply negative impact that this levy would have on hauliers based in border areas and on island-wide trade, which generates £2.3 billion for the island, with the larger return to the local economy; further notes that the additional levy would increase costs to local consumers; and calls on the Executive to exert maximum influence on the British government to ensure that the local road system is exempt from this levy.
