HC Deb 28 June 2001 vol 370 cc173-4W
Mr. Tynan

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will make a statement on the environmental impact of the recent cut in duty on low sulphur petrol and cut in ultra-low sulphur diesel. [606]

Mr. Boateng

Environmental impacts of the duty cuts for ultra-low sulphur petrol (ULSP) and ultra-low sulphur diesel (ULSD) announced in Budget 2001 are summarised in Table 6.2 of the 'Economic and Fiscal Strategy Report 2001". Further information about the promotion of low sulphur fuels through fiscal measures is to be found in the Customs and Excise paper, "Using the tax system to encourage cleaner fuels: the experience of ultra-low sulphur diesel", published in November 2000.
