AIR POLLUTION AND RED DIESEL

That this House welcomes the Chancellor of the Exchequer's review of red diesel usage announced in the Spring Budget 2017 statement; expresses concern at the amount of air pollution caused by diesel-powered transport refrigeration units; notes that those units can emit up to six times as much nitrogen oxide and almost 30 times as much particulate matter as a Euro 6 truck engine; further notes that those units are often run on red diesel, which is subsidised by HM Treasury; believes that subsidising red diesel inhibits the Government's plans to support the development and take-up of cleaner technologies; notes that if the UK's 84,000 transport refrigeration units became zero emission it would equate to taking 4 million Euro 6 diesel cars off the UK's roads; and therefore urges the Government to act and end red diesel subsidies for transport refrigeration units.
