Tories to tax short-haul flights
David Cameron to levy aviation tax on anyone making more than one short-haul flight a year
Tory leader David
Cameron is reported to be planning to introduce an aviation tax on
anyone taking more than one short-haul flight a year.
Experts believe that the move, an effort to establish his green credentials,
could alienate 400,000 voters who have homes abroad and make an average of three
visits a year to these properties,
the Daily Telegraph
Street responded to the policy by saying that it didn’t want to
‘make stepping on a plane a criminal offence’.
