14th June, 2007
The stream of consultations remains unabated! The AEF has responded to two of the latest – the draft climate change bill and the Conservatives’ consultation on aviation, tax and the environment.
The climate consultation ended on 11th June. The key issues and concerns were summarised in the earlier news item ‘only two weeks left for climate bill responses’. The AEF has submitted a response which outlines the scale of the problem and gives a detailed argument as to why international aviation can and should be included in the targets. See Climate Change Bill consultation response.
The Conservative Party issued a consultation ‘Greener Skies: A consultation on the environmental taxation of aviation’ in March 07. The consultation ended on 12th June. The AEF’s response supports many of the proposals, but qualifies some and provides additional points. See Greener Skies response.
