Pay-per-mile scheme considered for non-British lorries

A pay per mile scheme is being considered for non-British lorries using UK roads according to news reports. 

One justification for such a charge is that lorries arrive in the UK from the continent filled with lower-duty fuel and at present, they make no direct contribution to the cost of maintaining the UK road network.

Long term, the revenue following into the UK exchequer from fuel duty is likely to drop sharply in part because of step improvements in fuel efficiency, the expansion of electric vehicles and also forecasts that car ownership may decline.
