Finance Bill — New Clause 2 — Report on Application of Climate Change Levy Tax To Electricity Generated from Renewable Sources — 8 Sep 2015 at 19:45
The majority of MPs voted against requiring a report on the impact of applying the Climate Change Levy tax to electricity generated from renewable sources.
MPs were considering the Finance Bill:
The text of the rejected new clause, titled: Report on the removal of the Climate Change Levy exemption stated:
- (1) No later than 6 months following the passing of this Act the Chancellor of the Exchequer shall publish a report into the effect of the removal of the Climate Change Levy exemption on renewable energy generators.
- (2) That report must include information about:
- (a) The effect that the removal of the exemption has had on existing generators
- (b) The effect that the removal of the exemption has had on projects which were in the planning process
- (c) The cumulative effect on investor confidence in renewable energy of this change in the context of wider government policy on renewable energy; and
- (d) The effect of these changes on the United Kingdom’s ability to meet its climate change targets and commitments.
