The Tories have poured cold water on the idea of new increased environmental
taxes should they come to power.
Zac Goldsmith, deputy chairman of the party’s commission on the environment
and editor of The Ecologist magazine, was reported in The Times at the weekend
saying that tax increases would not necessarily be a good idea.
‘Most environmentalists would come out with a huge increase in taxes’ as a
solution to green problems, he said. ‘I don’t agree. The Conservative Party
doesn’t like forcing people to do anything and I don’t think we have to – most
of the obstacles are from bad governance,’ he said.
