Motion text

That this House notes with concern that the Government has changed the criteria for allocation of PFI credits to restrict highway authorities to one major project bid per authority; further notes that this takes no account of the large population, high car ownership and heavy road uses in Hertfordshire in comparison to some other authorities; further notes that Hertfordshire has made a bid for PFI credits for the much-needed Baldock By-Pass, a scheme to relieve the town of very damaging congestion and environmental damage, but also wishes to make a bid for PFI credits for the Central Hertfordshire Passenger Transit System; and calls on the Government to recognise the exceptional needs of Hertfordshire and to allocate PFI credits for both of these key transport schemes.
