Air Passenger Duty

Volume 485: debated on Thursday 11 December 2008

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what representations he has received from US authorities on the proposed changes to air passenger duty; what the content of each such representation was; what response his Department made in each case; and if he will make a statement. (242596)

The Chancellor announced at the 2008 pre-Budget report that air passenger duty would be reformed from a two-distance band regime to a four-distance band regime. The Chancellor has not received any representations from the US authorities on these changes.

The US Government responded to the Government's consultation on proposals for a per plane tax. The summary of consultation responses was published alongside the pre-Budget report.
