Paul Clark, road safety minister

Graham Stringer, Labour MP for Blackley, Manchester, has asked transport minister Paul Clark what the progress is of the Galileo satellite navigation system which could be used to introduce a road charging system.

Clark said the European Commission envisages the deployment of the Galileo satellite constellation and the establishment of the ground-based infrastructure to run until 2013 and for initial operations to commence in that time frame.

Operational capability will be confirmed once full testing has taken place. This is expected to take place during 2014.
