Have your say

Driffield MP Greg Knight has welcomed a new charge of up to £1,000 per year being imposed on foreign lorries using British roads.

The fee will raise around £20m a year for the upkeep of highways. It will also stop British lorry drivers being undercut by foreign hauliers who fill up on cheaper French diesel before coming to Britain.

Sir Greg is one of a group of MPs who has long campaigned for this change.
