Motion text

That this House believes that the UK’s air passenger duty (APD), the highest air passenger duty in the world, is acting as a deterrent to both inward investment and inbound tourism; is concerned about the impact of APD on UK businesses wishing to export to emerging markets; notes the compelling analysis undertaken by PricewaterhouseCoopers about the economic impacts of APD; further believes changes in APD policy could contribute positively to the UK’s economic growth; and calls on HM Treasury to commission a comprehensive study into the full economic effects of aviation tax in the UK, including its impact on employment.
