Government sets up energy use review panel

THE Government has set up a special review panel to investigate green taxes to curb energy use by companies. The remit could include the role of vehicles in business.

Chancellor of the Exchequer Gordon Brown has asked Sir Colin Marshall, chairman of British Airways and, until July, president of the Confederation of British Industry, to head the review into 'economic instruments to improve the industrial and commercial use of energy'.

While the exact remit has yet to be announced along with the make-up of the panel the group's work will include a study of whether or not new taxes should be introduced to help curb industrial emissions.
