REVIEW OF ROAD USER CHANGES. FINAL REPORT OF THE WORKING PARTY
The Working Party to review Road User Changes was established in August 1982, in recognition of the continuing dissatisfaction within the road transport industry about the level and equity of Road User Charges. It was also set up as a result of the Government's desire to fully inplement the Charges, and in the process eliminate the shortfall between the National Roads Board's income from road users and its budgeted expenditure. The Working Party comprises representatives of the following organizations--New Zealand Road Transport Association, Ministry of Works and Development (Chair), Ministry of Transport, The Treasury and Prime Minister's Department. Progress made during the course of the Working Party's deliberations resulted in some development of its original terms of reference. The original terms of reference, and subsequent directions to the Working Party, are set out as Annex A of this report. Submissions were invited from a wide range of interested parties and were accepted from fifteen organizations which are listed in Annex B to this report. In this final report, the present system and that proposed by the New Zealand Road Transport Association are compared and contrasted, and recommendations are made.
