Climate Change Bill — International aviation and shipping emission projections — rejected — 28 Oct 2008 at 20:45
George Osborne MP, Tatton did not vote.
- The Secretary of State shall lay before Parliament a report including -
- annual projections of the level of emissions he expects to arise from international aviation and shipping which are the result of UK economic activity
- an explanation of the methodology used to make this emissions projection, and
- the way in which any carbon budgets have been adjusted to take account of such projections.
The purpose of the clause is to expose the seemingly special consideration which has often been granted to aviation over all other sectors of the economy. The objection to the clause was that recording shipping emissions is particularly difficult.
The Conservative Party almost entirely abstained from this vote.
