Air Passenger Duty

Many constituents have sent me a copy of the campaign email against the current high level of this aviation tax. I am taking the matter up with the Treasury as I agree it is very high and will let correspondents see the reply. There is no need to send me more copies of the email as I am on the case.

    Best of luck John.

    Taxes almost equal to fares on some low cost airlines if you book well in advance.

    Travelling long distance, then its a short hop over the channel and go from any number of foreign airports where tax is considerably lower.

    Thus the Uk gets no tax at all.
