Fewer than 100 have their say on gas guzzler tax
Tuesday 2nd February 2010, 11:30AM GMT.
THE Environment Department has had fewer than 100 responses to a consultation document about taxing vehicles based on their CO2 emissions.
Environment is looking at ways to discourage car owners from buying and using vehicles that produce high levels of emissions.
Five options were included in the consultation document, but Environment is insisting there are no firm policies at the moment.
‘The department undertook this exercise from a position of complete neutrality,’ said a spokesman.
‘There were no preconceived opinions and there is no hidden revenue-raising agenda.’
The possible options outlined in the document include an extra tax on fuel of 50p a litre and a flat £2,000 first-registration charge on new cars that generate high levels of carbon dioxide.
