PM faces another revolt within ranks over tax

Brown faces yet another revolt within the Labour ranks over increased tax - this time the vehicle excise duty

Labour backbenchers have urged Chancellor Alistair Darling to re-think plans
announced in the Budget for big increases in vehicle excise duty on ‘gas
guzzling’ cars.

Vehicles bought before 2001 are exempt, but MPs worry some owners who bought
bigger cars in the past, not realising the changes were on the way, could face
increases of up to £200, according to
The
Press Association
.

More than 30 Labour backbenchers have signed a Commons motion, calling on
ministers to re-think the proposals before the new rates come into force.

Ronnie Campbell, the Labour MP who tabled the motion, warned the impact of
the increases could be similar to scrapping the 10p tax rate, he also called on
Darling to drop the planned 2p increase in fuel duty due in October.
