Green Taxation v Green Funding

Instead of being given an appointment with Chairman John McFall MP, I was invited to submit a ‘Supplementary Memo’ which I finally sent on May 10th.

Edited by a committee of four, including our lawyer, it is 4 pages long and contains 33 paragraphs. Committee documents require paragraphs to be numbered for ease of reference.

The gist is that ‘green taxation’ as a stick is not as good as ‘green funding’ as a carrot.

And that the ethical dimensions that Sir Nicholas Stern has referred to require long term thinking.
