Air Pollution And Red Diesel

EDM number 295 in 2017-19, proposed by Tom Brake on 11/09/2017.
Categorised under the topics of Energy, Oil, petrol and natural gas, Pollution and Taxation.

That this House notes the Government's plans to tackle Britain's air pollution crisis and improve air quality; further notes that reduced duty red diesel for certain uses costs HM Treasury £2.4 billion annually; believes that subsidising red diesel also inhibits the Government's plans to support the take-up of cleaner technologies and tackle air pollution effectively; notes that clean and affordable alternative fuels are available for some uses of red diesel, such as in transport refrigeration units; notes that if the UK's 84,000 transport refrigeration units became zero emission it would equate to taking 4 million Euro 6 diesel cars off the UK's roads; welcomes HM Treasury's red diesel consultation that was announced in the Spring Budget 2017 and closed in in June 2017; and calls on the Government to act and end red diesel subsidies for transport refrigeration units.

This motion has been signed by a total of 18 MPs.
