HC Deb 25 November 1999 vol 339 c167W
Mr. Green

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions what plans he has to include aircraft emissions in the UK greenhouse gases totals; and if he will make a statement. [99243]

Mr. Meacher

[holding answer 23 November 1999]: Published UK greenhouse gas totals include emissions from domestic aviation. Emissions from international aviation are also reported with the UK greenhouse gas inventory, but are not included in the UK total in accordance with international guidelines. The allocation to countries of greenhouse gas emissions from international aviation is under consideration by the parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, in consultation with the International Civil Aviation Organisation.
