Wales Bill — New Clause 6 — Tax on Carriage of Passengers by Air — 12 Sep 2016 at 21:00

The majority of MPs voted against devolving powers relating to air passenger duty to the Government of Wales and the Welsh Assembly.

MPs were considering the Wales Bill[1].

The proposed new clause rejected in this vote was titled: Tax on Carriage of Passengers by Air which began:

  • “(1) In Part 4A of the Government of Wales Act 2006, after Chapter 4 insert—
  • “Chapter 5
  • 116O Tax on carriage of passengers by air
  • (1) A tax charged on the carriage of passengers by air from airports in Wales is a devolved tax.
  • ...

The rejected new clause was accompanied by an explanatory note saying:

  • This new Clause would make air passenger duty a devolved tax in Wales, on the lines of section 17 of the Scotland Act 2016.
