HC Deb 21 October 2002 vol 391 c82W
Mr. Peter Ainsworth

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will estimate the annual income to Exchequer funds which would arise from extending the present rate of road fuel duty on unleaded petrol to aviation fuel. [75037]

John Healey

Levying duty on aviation turbine fuel at the same duty rate as that charged on ultra low sulphur petrol (ULSP), which is 45.82 pence per litre, would have raised approximately £5.7 billion in 2001–02, assuming no reduction in demand.
