AIR PASSENGER DUTY

That this House believes that the UK's air passenger duty, the highest air passenger tax in the world, is acting as a deterrent to both inward investment and inbound tourism; is concerned about its financial impact on ordinary families and their ability to fly; notes the impact on businesses wishing to export to emerging markets; and calls on HM Treasury to commission a comprehensive study into the full economic effects of aviation tax in the UK, including its impact on employment, reporting in advance of the 2013 Budget.

Amendment 174A1 - AIR PASSENGER DUTY

leave out from `believes' to end and add `recognises the need for internationally competitive aviation taxation, minimising the financial impact of taxes on the travelling public and providing effective disincentives for pollution; welcomes recent research by the Institute for Fiscal Studies, which recommends switching to a per-plane duty; further recognises that a per-plane duty would incentivise airlines to operate their aircraft at greater capacity, thereby reducing carbon emissions and the tax burden on individual passengers; and calls on HM Treasury to increase efforts to reach international agreement to allow the use of a per-plane duty and to ensure that the aviation industry makes a greater contribution towards meeting the costs of its environmental impact.'.
