The majority of MPs voted not to require a report on the impact of the Climate Change Levy in reducing carbon emissions.
The Climate Change Levy (CCL) is a tax on energy delivered to non-domestic users in the United Kingdom. Its aim is to provide an incentive to increase energy efficiency and to reduce carbon emissions.
MPs were considering the Finance Bill.
The amendment rejected in this vote was:
- Amendment 183, page 189, line 13, at end add—
- ‘(3) The Chancellor of the Exchequer shall conduct a review of the impact of the Climate Change Levy in reducing carbon emissions within 12 months of the passing of this Act.
- (4) The report shall have particular reference to—
- (a) the removal of the exemption for electricity generated from renewable sources;
- (b) the abolition of the Carbon Reduction Commitment; and
- (c) reporting requirements by companies and public sector bodies for energy usage and carbon emissions.”
Had it not been rejected this amendment would have added the above sub-clauses to Clause 135 of the Bill.
