Sir: Ken Livingstone's blueprint to end the transport misery in London makes several positive suggestions but is silent on the cost of car parking at commuter stations.

At Watford Junction, the cost of parking for a day has recently risen from pounds 3 to pounds 3.50. This adds significantly to the cost of commuting by rail and the suggested congestion tax might have to be pitched well above pounds 5 per day before it would act as a real deterrent to motorists driving into central London. The cost of parking at commuter stations needs to be considered as part of the overall equation.
