It is also alleged that company car drivers receive a pounds 1.5bn subsidy. This again is wrong, as the Treasury receives many millions of pounds a year from the very significant taxation on company cars.
Looking at the Department of Transport's planned expenditure for the next three years, more money will be spent on British Rail and London Underground than on our motorways and trunk roads. Although the amount of money spent on transport is inadequate, it is not the case that we over-fund our roads at the expense of public transport.
