Car Tax should reflect environmental damage
Commenting on the Sustainable Development Commission's recommendation for a higher rate of Vehicle Excise Duty for the most polluting cars, Liberal Democrat Shadow Environment Secretary, Norman Baker MP said:
"I welcome the fiscal changes suggested by the SDC and in particular the greater flexibility in banding gas guzzlers.
"The price of running a car should reflect the environmental damage it does. Gas guzzlers, such as many models of 4x4s, should pay more and cleaner cars should pay less."
