Opposition Day — Northern Ireland — Abolition of Air Passenger Duty — 23 Oct 2013 at 18:49

The majority of MPs voted in favour of air passenger duty and against its abolition.

The motion rejected in this vote was:

  • That this House
  • recognises that the UK has the highest rate of air passenger duty (APD) in the world;
  • believes that this is detrimental to attracting inward investment, encouraging exports, drawing more tourists to the UK and helping ordinary families to benefit from aviation;
  • notes research carried out by PricewaterhouseCoopers and others stating that abolishing APD would not only pay for itself but would be a permanent economic boost to the UK economy and create tens of thousands of jobs;
  • further believes that the abolition of this tax would be of benefit to all regions of the UK;
  • further notes that it is the intention of the Prime Minister to review green taxes; and
  • calls on the Government, as part of that review, to give high priority to the abolition of air passenger duty.
