MP Wants Climate Change Levy Scrapped

Following the budget proposals to axe the CCL exemption for businesses committing to renewable source electricity, local MP and climate change sceptic David Davies wants the £9 billion levy, which subsidises renewables generation, scrapped altogether.  He maintains that Wales is already doing more than its share of renewables generation, exceeding targets, and that the levy puts UK businesses at a disadvantage compared with competitors.  Those with different views see the CCL exemption as a weakening of the UK Government’s resolve to counter climate change, and part of an attack on wind farms.
