Government faces £30m parking bill

THE Government stands to pay out £30 million for its parking spaces if workplace parking charges are introduced, according to Tory MP James Gray. Gray, MP for North Wiltshire, estimates the Government has 100,000 spaces liable for charges. He said: 'At a charge of £3,000 each the Government stands to pay out £30 million a year which will come from the tax payers' pockets.'

Under the proposals laid out in the Government's 'Breaking the Logjam' document, local authorities will be able to set parking charges and road-user charges with no upper limit, as long as they can argue the case for imposing them with the secretary of state.
