Legality of UK Air Passenger Duty increase questioned

No wonder I could not find the legal basis for the 1 February 2007 increase when I search the web earlier this week for the relevant UK legislation or a bill before the UK Parliament. The law change has yet to be made.

The Federation of Tour Operators (FTO) is reported in the Telegraph to be set to take legal action and the Conservatives are also questioning its legality. The BBC reported on the UK Government's response.
