As part of Government duties, Ministers hold regular meetings with EU counterparts and other interested parties to discuss a range of issues. HM Treasury and HMRC will shortly publish proposals to reform the climate change levy to provide more certainty and support to the carbon price and encourage investment in low-carbon electricity generation. As part of this consultation, appropriate discussions will be held with EU counterparts, and other relevant parties.
