Seven councils in the West Midlands have decided to go ahead with their plans to tax office parking spaces despite opposition to the scheme, reports The Birmingham Post (p1).

The region's joint committee on transport will express its interest to the government in piloting the scheme, under which firms would pay£250 a year for each parking space.

The committee must submit its draft transport plan for the 12 months from April 2000 to the government by the end of July.

On Monday, John Prescott, the environment secretary, said such schemes would eventually be introduced across the country despite opposition.
