Transport Minister Dr Stephen Ladyman refused to rule out bikes could be made to pay in future congestion charging schemes.  

In response to a question, Ladyman said: “Exemptions in any local schemes that may get proposed will be for the local proposers to put forward but the London Congestion Charge includes a motorbike exemption so I have no doubt that areas that follow them will take similar exemptions very seriously.”
