Timid approach to green taxes by government slammed by Treasury Committee MPs

The government has failed to use taxes to stop environmental damage and has
adopted a ‘timid’ approach to green taxation, the influential Treasury Committee
has said.

‘We are very disappointed by the Government’s timid use of environmental
taxes. True, they have introduced the climate change levy, and aggregates levy,
but these are miniscule in the grand scheme of things.

‘Overall, the Government has failed to match its 1997 commitment to increase
the use of green taxes,’ said committee chairman John McFall.
