Bill increasing UK Air Passenger Duty progressing through Parliament

The Finance Bill 2008-09 (.pdf), the legislation that proposes to increase the United Kingdom's Air Passenger Duty and change to a system based on four distance-related bands (see clause 17 and Schedule 5 - the latter is on pp85-88), is progressing through Parliament.

Clause 17 comes immediately after a heading "Other environmental taxes and duties" (see previous post).

Many passengers would not have been aware of the delay notice. I feel that airlines should be compelled to list the compensation due, under the regulations, on the Delay Notice. And it should be a requirement for all airlines to be proactive in distributing Delay Notices to ALL passengers and not just those who have requested one. The Air Travel Advisory Bureau provide important advice and guidance on air travel,APD, flight status, cheap tickets and air travel deals.
