Economy and transport questions

Following a question by Mike German AM on Severn Bridge tolls, the Transport Minister Ieuan Wyn Jones confirmed that it was likely, in the latter part of 2010, motorists would be able to use credit cards on the bridge.

During the economy and transport questions on 27 January 2010, Mr German also wanted assurance from the deputy first minister that additional charges would not be made when using bank cards on the bridge.

Mr Jones said that this was not a devolved matter and was a decision for the Severn Bridge service providers.

The Conservative AM Angela Burns raised her concerns with the recent heavy snowfall across Wales.

Ms Burns was specifically concerned that some people missed out on getting paid, due to their inability to reach the work place.

Ms Burns therefore asked Mr Jones if he would consider setting up an assembly contingency group whenever the Met office issues a weather warning.

Ieuan Wyn Jones said that a UK wide contingency group, already existed, however agreed to look at the options of establishing a group in Wales.

The economy and transport minister also answered questions on convergence funding projects and transport priorities for Monmouth.
