Dan, thank you. That's all from us. Now,

Good evening. A law has come into effect which

Critics say more needs to bd done to help British haulage companies

compete against foreign firls. Crispin Rolfe joins us now from a

:00:27.:00:29.

truck stop in Immingham. Crhspin, why has this law been introduced?

:00:30.:00:38.

This is all about the Government trying to level things up for all of

:00:39.:00:43.

these truck operators. Whether they are oversees all British run. The

:00:44.:00:48.

British ones are paying for the upkeep of the British roads. The

:00:49.:00:53.

overseas ones have not been doing so. But there is now a levy to even

:00:54.:01:00.

things up. Your operator should have paid a road user levy.

Enforcing new regulations designed Enforcing new regulations designed

to help UK hauliers. This was one of many foreign lorries stopped near

:01:07.:01:09.

Immingham on the day new ch`rges came in for overseas drivers using

:01:10.:01:16.

British roads. The new levy is paid by British and Foreign lorrx

:01:17.:01:19.

drivers. It costs ?10 a day up to a maximum of a ?1,000 each ye`r.

:01:20.:01:23.

However, British drivers will be able to claim their money b`ck

:01:24.:01:32.

through a reduced road tax. I think it will level the playing field

:01:33.:01:35.

between foreign lorries that come to the country and not contributing

:01:44.:01:44.

earlier than what was thought possible. Among those caught today

:01:45.:01:48.

were British drivers working for foreign companies. In this case, the

:01:49.:01:51.

Dutch firm had paid too little for the size of the lorry. We knew it

:01:52.:01:56.

was coming, but it was only because we spoke to other drivers that I

:01:57.:01:59.

knew that had started today. They've now been forced to return to the

:02:00.:02:03.

Netherlands with a ?300 find. But one Hull haulier says the levy

:02:04.:02:04.

one Hull haulier says the ldvy doesn't go far enough, pointing out

:02:05.:02:07.

many foreign drivers save hundreds of pounds by filling up with cheaper

:02:08.:02:09.

diesel on the continent. Whdn you diesel on the continent. Whdn you

:02:10.:02:16.

are looking at ?200 per week difference in diesel cost, I

are looking at ?200 per week difference in diesel cost, H don't

:02:19.:02:21.

think ?10 per day is really going to stop these guys wanting to come

:02:22.:02:24.

over. And there were similar feelings from drivers at thhs

:02:25.:02:27.

Lincolnshire truck stop. We've got to pay all the car tax, road tax,

:02:28.:02:31.

over there you have to pay `nd when over there you have to pay and when

:02:32.:02:33.

you are here you have to pax. over there you have to pay `nd when

:02:34.:02:35.

you are here you have to pay. They you are here you have to pax. They

are trying to shut the stable door. It is small fry in terms of revenue,

:02:41.:02:42.

but I think it is the principle It is small fry in terms of revenue,

:02:43.:02:44.

but I think it is the princhple that but I think it is the principle that

:02:45.:02:44.

applies. It is the principld that applies. It is the principld that

:02:45.:02:48.

the Government is willing to adopt this system and can consider it in

:02:49.:02:52.

the future when it is looking at the tariffs it is charging. Whatever the

:02:53.:02:55.

view of this new levy, strict enforcement will continue ndar

:02:56.:02:56.

view of this new levy, strict enforcement will continue near our

:02:57.:02:56.

enforcement will continue ndar our ports with the Government hopeful

:02:57.:02:59.

that it will level the playhng field for British hauliers.

:03:00.:03:03.

This does seem to be a point of principle, rather than raishng extra

:03:04.:03:06.

principle, rather than raising extra money for the Treasury, mainly

:03:07.:03:11.

because despite overseas lorries making 100,000 trips over hdre, 1.5

:03:12.:03:13.

making 100,000 trips over here, 1.5 million journeys once they get here,

:03:14.:03:17.

they still have to raise an awful lot of money to touch the sides of a

:03:18.:03:19.

lot of money to touch the shdes of a ?10 billion that the Government

:03:20.:03:21.

needs by 2020 in order to rdpair the needs by 2020 in order to repair the
