The Government supports the G20’s initiative to reform inefficient fossil fuel subsidies and has offered to be a peer reviewer. However we do not believe the UK is a suitable candidate for peer review under this process as we have no fossil fuel subsidies according to the definition adopted by the UK and other EU members of the G20.
