Petition on Air Passenger Duty

I have commented on the tax system on civil aviation before. The current system of taxing airline passengers is inappropriate. There is no penalty for operating old, more polluting aircraft, air transport of cargo and business jets are not taxed through this system, and airlines are penalised for carrying passengers at a higher load factor.

If you are prepared to sign an e-petition to ask the government to reform this system, there is one available here.
