More tax on way

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Your -

RE: Let­ter: Elec­tric car charg­ing points idea is too good to be true, April 28.

Gov­ern­ment fi­nances sim­ply can’t do with­out the mega-tax on tax (VAT on duty) levied on petrol and diesel. So folks with elec­tric cars recharged from so­lar cells on the roof isn’t ac­cept­able. I ex­pect within 10 years, it’ll be an MOT re­quire­ment to have a “black box” and mo­torists will be taxed per mile, re­gard­less of how the car is pow­ered.
