Scots Tories blast traffic plans

CONSERVATIVE members of the Scottish Parliament have blasted plans for congestion charging in Scottish cities. In a debate on the Transport (Scotland) Bill, Scottish Conservative group leader David McLetchie said: 'Such a charge is not necessary and will not achieve its aim of reducing traffic congestion. The charge is a toll tax, designed to raise revenue for the council.'

But Scottish roads minister Sarah Boyack said: 'It is recognised that we must give local authorities the opportunity to consider how to tackle congestion and how to generate funds for long-term investment, which will improve public transport choices.'
