Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

ROAD EQUIVALENT TARIFF, which equalises the cost of taking a lorry on a ferry with the cost of running it on the road, is slowly being phased in, Scottish Office Transport Minister Malcolm Rifkind told the House of Commons Scottish Affairs Committee last Week. But it will take time to introduce the full system, he added.

The delay has been caused by the amount of research needed to estimate the RET fares for each of the routes in Scotland so as to discover the overall cost.

Mr Rifkind said that Commercial Motor's cost tables had encouraged the Scottish Office to include depreciation values in its estimate of the total RET costs.

The Scottish Development Department would favour allowing other shipping companies to use the Calmac terminals.
