Brown Set To Back Worldwide Air Fuel Tax
Sunday, 06:00 March 12, 2000
Chancellor Gordon Brown is set to back European Union calls for a tax on aircraft fuel - but only if the levy applies across the world. European Commission proposals to be discussed in Brussels on Monday would give EU governments the option to apply an energy tax on air travel for the first time.
The move would reverse a current EU Directive which exempts commercial aviation fuel from taxation.
