Greens up the ante on aviation

 

As Gordon Brown delivers this year's budget, promised to introduce a raft of green taxes, the Green Party has called on the government to put its money where its mouth is and finally acknowledge that to combat climate change we must tax the sector with the fastest growing carbon dioxide emissions rate.

 

Sian Berry, Green Party Campaigns Co-ordinator and a member of the National
Executive, says: "It seems clear that this, Brown's tenth budget, will do little to back up the government's green rhetoric with substantive measures.

"The Greens are especially concerned at news that the budget is unlikely to do anything to tackle the exponential growth of the aviation industry - the fastest growing contributor to climate change.

"The Green Party has long been ahead of the game in developing coherent and
efficient economic policies to tackle climate change, but our belief in an end to the tax-exempt status of aviation fuel, which currently amounts to a £9.2 billion subsidy for the industry in the UK, puts us light years ahead of the government, who have only recently conceded the danger posed by climate change.

"At our recent spring conference, we consolidated our strategy for curbing aviation by adopting a radical new policy requiring mandatory health warnings on airline advertising.

"As it stands, passengers are not made aware of the effect of their decision to take a cheap flight - we want to change this, whilst also ensuring the real cost of flying is reflected in the price of their ticket."
