Darling faces more tax rage over backdated vehicle excise

Darling faces more public anger over tax as his plans to backdate vehicle excise duty hit at least 2.3m people

A handful of Labour rebels have threatened to join the Tories in today’s vote
for a removal of the backdating element of the vehicle excise duty scheme to
penalise the more polluting vehicles.

The vehicle excise duty has provoked anger because it retrospectively applies
to some cars bought since 2001, the Financial Times reports.

Ronnie Campbell, one of the rebel Labour MPs, last night warned the changes
would infuriate voters if they came into force next summer as planned.

‘It will be 10p all over again,’ he said. But many of the 49 Labour MPs who
signed a motion on the issue are expected to fall into line before the vote.
