HC Deb 19 May 2004 vol 421 c988W
Norman Baker

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what revenue he received from the Climate Change Levy in(a) 2002–03 and (b) 2003–04; and what proportion of that sum in each year was received from those companies receiving 80 per cent. discounts as part of sectoral climate change agreements. [173463]

John Healey

Table 2.1D in the ONS publication "Financial Statistics" (April 2004) shows cash receipts from the Climate Change Levy to be £829 million in 2002–03. A provisional figure for 2003–04 receipts of £831 million is also available on the ONS website.

It is not possible to determine the proportion of levy receipts the Exchequer received during 2002–03 or 2003–04 from those companies covered by negotiated climate change agreements.
