      From The Observer, April 17 2005
      "The CBI is demanding £300bn of public and private investment in the next 10
      years on transport. Under Labour plans, the combined figure is £240bn.
      Closing the gap will inevitably involve a wider and more flexible version of
      the road pricing scheme (the congestion charge) currently used successfully
      in London. This, plus innovative fiscal mechanisms to capture the increased
      land value yielded by major transport infrastructure, needs to be deployed,
      says the CBI."

      Dinos Kyrou, one of our members cannot seem to find any direct confirmation
      of this from the CBI's website.

      Was there a press release or did this just come from a non-attributable
      source?
