Unfair Caribbean Passenger Tax

To: Alistair Darling, Chancellor of the Exchequer

We the undersigned call on the Government to rethink their plans on air passenger duty which will penalise families travelling to the Caribbean. We think it is wrong for flights to the Caribbean to carry a higher tax than flights to the West Coast of America, which is further away. We call on the Government to tax flights based on how much carbon the plane emits not on zones based on the location of a country's capital city. We call on the Government to abolish the air passenger tax and replace it with an aviation duty on each plane, based on the actual distance travelled, which is fairer and better for the environment.

Thank you for your interest but we are no longer accepting signatures for this petition.

    If you are a resident of the Brent Central constituency and are writing to discuss any issue that Parliament or government is responsible for, you must provide your home address as MPs are generally only permitted to act on behalf of constituents.

    If you are not a constituent, you do not need to provide your address, but the matters we can deal with are more limited and you may wish to contact your local MP in the first instance.
