The Government will give incentives to introduce automated cars on UK roads.
Chancellor Philip Hammond yesterday said he will experience one of the so-called driverless cars today during a Midlands visit.
The UK should be a leading country in the future of automotive technology and related science and it has projected 2021 as the date when self-driving cars will be introduced.
It is expected he will begin changing the legal requirements when he outlines his Budget on Wednesday and announces a spending programme to develop the technology and support for a nationwide ev-charging network.
He is expected to propose £400 Million for the ev-network and £100 million to incentivise buying electric cars.
Estimates put the value of the technology at £28 Billion by 2035 supporting 27,000 jobs.
There are concerns about where the money will come from and if it will result in higher penalties for internal combustion engines and duties on petrol and diesel.
