To ask Mr Chancellor of the Exchequer, what estimate he has made of the cost to the Exchequer of reducing (a) Band A and (b) Band B air passenger duty by 50 per cent, excluding Scotland, from 1 April 2015; and if he will make a statement.

Air Passenger Duty (APD) is kept under review as part of the normal policy management process.

I draw the Hon. Member’s attention to the disaggregated APD receipts by country which are published by HMRC at https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/disaggregation-of-hmrc-tax-receipts and the data on forecast APD receipts and the cost to exempt children published in tables 2.1 and B.3 of Autumn Statement 2014 at https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/autumn-statement-documents.
