Car tax recommended by green group

Environment group calls for more green taxes

A £3,300 new-car levy has been put forward by a government backed think tank,
which wants to see double the amount of green tax revenue.

The Green Fiscal Commission has put forward the car tax as part of a £150
billion package which includes a tripling of the fuel duty over the next ten
years,
The
Daily Telegraph reports
.

The commission wants to double the number of green tax revenue, from the
present 7%.

One author of the report, Paul Elkins, a professor at University College
London said there needed to be a change of mindset.

“We’ve had it as a given that energy is cheap, so we have been wasteful. This
has to change and the only way to do that is to make the polluters pay,” she
said.
