Motion text

That this House, believing that it is wrong to make people pay more tax to save fuel than to use it and believing that actions to improve efficiency exceptionally combine social, economic, environmental and job recreation benefits, welcomes the Paymaster General's statement that he takes energy efficiency seriously, and his commitment that Government will work to improve the way in which energy is used in Britain and will find out before the next Budget what needs to be done to impove energy efficiency in the United Kingdom; urges once again a reduction from 17.5 per cent. to 8 per cent. in the value added tax rate on all energy saving materials, a rate equal to the 8 per cent. value added tax on domestic fuel, thereby restoring a level tax field to energy and environmental policies; urges increased funding for the home energy efficiency scheme to restore the 31 per cent. reduction announced last November and to maintain the full value of that scheme for all elderly people into the future; and furthermore urges the Government to seek out other innovative ways to encourage energy efficiency and to support the efforts of others to implement energy efficiency schemes.
