Did you mean feel duty?

Northern Ireland (26 Jun 2017)

Damian Green: change in the pensions triple lock before 2020. As part of this agreement, both parties have agreed there will be no change to the triple lock for the duration of this Parliament. We further agreed that there will be no change to the universal nature of the winter fuel payment. The Prime Minister said we would listen to what people said during the election campaign, and this is an...

Housing and Social Security (22 Jun 2017)

Richard Drax: ..., and even then retaking the Falklands was touch and go. We often hear people say that the UK tries to punch above her weight. Yes, we do. As a beacon of freedom, hope and democracy, we have frequently been called on to do our duty around the world, which does not come cheap. I call on the Government to spend more on defence, especially as we face uncertain times and do not want to be...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (1st Day) (21 Jun 2017)

Baroness Smith of Basildon: ...that seek to make our community safer and to prevent such criminal and terrorist atrocities as we have seen. When the Prime Minister announced as her starting point that she was prepared to tear up the Human Rights Act if it “got in the way”, she was perhaps just looking at the issue from the wrong end of the telescope. The greatest and foremost human right is the right to...

Scottish Parliament: Air Departure Tax (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3 (20 Jun 2017)

Andy Wightman: Air departure tax is a modest tax on a very lightly taxed industry. The effective tax subsidy for the UK aviation sector in 2012 was around £11.4 billion, with no tax on jet fuel, zero rating for VAT and so on. That is more than £400 per household. With fares falling, the number of flights growing and pollution increasing, there is no need to cut that tax, but we need a legislative...

Scottish Parliament: Air Departure Tax (Scotland) Bill (20 Jun 2017)

Neil Bibby: ...will be devolved to the Scottish Parliament.” That is in the Smith commission report and was agreed by all parties—it should not be in any doubt today. Power over what we call air passenger duty is coming to Scotland, but it is a power that we must use responsibly. As I have said throughout the process, Scottish Labour supports the bill in principle. We believe that the air...

Scottish Parliament: Child Poverty (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (1 Jun 2017)

Tavish Scott: ...that up wrongly and would be happy to give way on that point. If educational attainment targets were to be included in the bill, which is what I think he was hinting at, why stop there? We could include sports participation levels, fuel poverty targets—in my part of the world, fuel poverty comes down to a choice between heat and food for too many families—or targets for house...

Emissions and Vehicle Type Approval — [Steve McCabe in the Chair] (20 Apr 2017)

Daniel Zeichner: ...quality domestically? I have to say, I felt he did not set out the full detail in this Chamber yesterday. Will the strategy include investment in greener buses and public transport? Will it include a review of plug-in grants and excise duty rates for electric vehicles? Will it include measures to reduce other barriers to electric vehicle uptake? Will it include extending clean air zones to...

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Motor Vehicles: Exhaust Emissions (20 Apr 2017)

John Hayes: ...databases listing most of the cars and new vans available for sale in the UK. These databases are available online and inform buyers about the impact of the vehicle on the environment by giving fuel consumption information or identifying those that use alternative fuel types; in the car database, identifying the vehicle excise duty on individual vehicles based on their CO2 emissions; and...

Diesel Vehicle Scrappage Scheme — [Mr Christopher Chope in the Chair] (19 Apr 2017)

Daniel Zeichner: ...Commission reported in 2016 that around four fifths of road traffic nitrogen oxide levels come from diesel-powered vehicles. Decisions have been taken in the past to incentivise the ownership of diesel-fuelled private cars, which reflected the urgent need at the time to act on the threat of CO2. That worked, because that is now down more than a third since 2000. This is not just about...

Petition - Proposed Closure of Annesley DWP Office: Mining: Health and Safety (28 Mar 2017)

Hannah Bardell: ...the loss of those industries get greater investment and support to embrace an environmentally friendly and low-carbon future? It is a fact that, despite goals to become a low-carbon economy, our dependence on imported fuels is now at a level not seen since the 1970s. The UK is the only one of Europe’s five biggest energy users to be increasing its reliance on imported energy. Britain...

Personal Independence Payments: Regulations: Family Justice (28 Mar 2017)

Suella Fernandes: ...originally offered by Sally. Sadly, this is not a fictional story. It is one of the many sad cases of high-conflict divorces. Family breakdown is painful for all involved, and it is the state’s duty to support those going through this difficult experience. However, as in the case of David and Sally, not only have those two extra nights per month been financially and emotionally...

Bus Services Bill [Lords]: National strategy (27 Mar 2017)

Andrew Jones: ...nightmare to change the system. Having said that, we are considering how to reform the BSOG operation. The grant pays a flat 34.57p a litre in subsidy, which is why it used to be called the fuel duty rebate. We are considering how to incentivise better practice, rather than just rewarding bus operators for using fuel, which is not good practice.

Public Bill Committee: Vehicle Technology and Aviation Bill: Air pollution and vehicle technology (23 Mar 2017)

John Hayes: ...was out of the House yesterday. Before we adjourned on Tuesday, several hon. Members raised the issue of liquid petroleum gas. The Government are already taking a number of steps to support gaseous fuels through the renewable transport fuel obligation, the low-emission bus scheme, the low-emission freight and logistics trial and the clean bus technology fund to name a few. Projects funded...

Public Bill Committee: Vehicle Technology and Aviation Bill: Air pollution and vehicle technology (21 Mar 2017)

Andrew Selous: ...less carbon and only 5% of Euro 6 nitrogen oxide emissions. There are two actions that the Government could take to expand the use of LPG as an interim measure to deal with air quality issues. The first is on the fuel duty escalator, and the second is to have conversations with some of the major vehicle manufacturers and van manufacturers such as Ford and General Motors, which already...

Intellectual Property (Unjustified Threats) Bill [Lords]: Fuel Poverty (21 Mar 2017)

Ian Blackford: ...treated fairly. There should be equity and fairness, but they do not exist in the UK today. The highlands and islands of Scotland experience the harshest climatic conditions in the UK and record levels of fuel poverty. There is far greater, area-wide dependence on the use of electricity for heating as well as lighting, but the standard unit price charged is 2p per kilowatt-hour more than...

Digital Economy Bill - Report (2nd Day) (Continued) (20 Mar 2017)

Lord Collins of Highbury: important area where the public good can be served not by sharing confidential information but by ensuring the availability of information that will serve a specific purpose in relation to fuel poverty. We on these Benches are very sympathetic on that point. In Committee we tabled amendments on the common-law duty of confidentiality, and the noble and learned Lord responded to those...

Public Bill Committee: Vehicle Technology and Aviation Bill: Large fuel retailers etc: provision of public charging points (16 Mar 2017)

John Hayes: Edmund Burke said, “Early and provident fear is the mother of safety.” Although I would not describe any of the comments as indicative of fear, it is certainly true that what I might describe as dutiful doubt and honest hesitation can be a helpful thing to Government when we are trying to navigate as yet uncharted waters, as one is bound to do in respect of this kind of...

Public Bill Committee: Bus Services Bill: National strategy (16 Mar 2017)

Daniel Zeichner: ...transport should not be available through the bus pass scheme. On top of that complexity, we have the bus service operators grant—BSOG, to those of us who take part in the discussions—which was introduced back in 1965 as the fuel duty rebate. It is a rebate paid directly to operators and dates from a time when it was mainly an accounting transaction within the public sector. Of...

Class 4 National Insurance Contributions - Statement (15 Mar 2017)

Lord Marlesford: ...Labour’s neck for a very long while. As for filling the gap, did my noble friend notice the suggestion that I made yesterday that one of the easiest things to do is to reverse the freeze on road fuel duty, which would do less than make up for inflation? An increase of 10p a litre would produce £4.6 billion of revenue this year, next year and every year.

Written Answers — HM Treasury: Excise Duties: Fuels (15 Mar 2017)

Byron Davies: To ask Mr Chancellor of the Exchequer, how much revenue the Exchequer has received in each year from 2009-10 from the taxation of Avgas.
