Sir: At last, road tax banding according to engine size, but why stop at one band? Surely at least four bands would be more appropriate, with a sharp rise for those who like to feel four litres or more under their bonnets.

I would also recommend to the Chancellor a special high-rate selfishness band for those four-wheel-drive owners registered to city addresses. Their cars not only emit their exhaust fumes at a height which is more readily breathed in by pedestrians, but also obscure the vision of all those car drivers who are stuck behind them.
