Ring-fence ‘Green’ stealth taxes

Comment 2nd July 2010

 

Ring-fence all 'green taxes' so that they don't go into the treasury pot to top up government spending and must legally be spent on green and sustainable initiatives.

Why does this matter?

This would remove the cynicism that the public have for 'green taxes' which are actually stealth taxes and would help us put money into projects that would help the planet and business as we would then become innovators in green technology.

 

For example the 'green' tax on flights. That should go into research for more efficient fuels or aircraft to benefit the industry.

 

Also some tax on fuel of which is 80%+ should also be put into green projects to we can ween ourselves off oil.
