Red Diesel

7.50 "The UK has a number of exemptions from the Energy Products Directive that enable
duty to be charged at a reduced rate on oils where they are put to certain uses. These
exemptions are due to expire at the end of 2006. While more information will be required to
inform the case the UK makes to the European Commission, the Government is minded to
apply for an extension of the derogations for fuel used in private air and pleasure craft
navigation, liquified petroleum gas (LPG) and natural gas (NG) used as motor fuel, and
waste oils reused as fuel.The Government will issue an initial regulatory impact assessment
on the effects of ending the derogation for private pleasure craft early next year. This
document will then be used as the basis for further information gathering and "

Not yet! but i'm 'hopeful' now, as i expected the government to make a less positive statement than this.

If it goes through that we keep it, it looks like I'll be poluting the planet at bit longer, whining about the weight, noise, and limited power, and making myself feel better about all of the above by taking the piss out everyone elses costs of running!

BMF

The British Marine Federation (BMF) was delighted earlier this week as it welcomed the Government's statement that it is minded to apply to renew the derogation for private pleasure craft to use red diesel. The BMF and the Royal Yachting Association (RYA) have taken a lead working with the Inland Waterways Association (IWA) and the Federation of Petroleum Suppliers, in a lengthy and coordinated campaign, 'Seeing Red', lobbying the UK Government for the last 18 months.

The prospect of the cost of marine diesel tripling at the end of next year is a real concern for the industry and boat users and therefore Monday's announcement is tremendous news.

Many BMF members have contributed to this campaign in different ways and the Federation would like to thank everyone for their efforts so far.

On hearing the announcement Howard Pridding, Executive Director of the BMF said: "It is great news for users and for the marine industry that the Government has decided that it is minded to apply to keep the derogation that allows private pleasure craft to use red diesel. The Government has listened carefully to all who have campaigned to keep the derogation over the last eighteen months and has realised the potential damage to participation and to the marine industry if the derogation were to lapse."

Neil Northmore, Government Relations Adviser at the RYA added: "The RYA and BMF warmly welcome the Government's statement but we are conscious that this battle is not over yet. The next step is to persuade the EU Commission to accept the UK's application to renew the derogation and that is a significant challenge. We will continue to work together with the UK Government to put forward the strongest possible case to win the argument in Europe."

Well Guess I'm just a Cynical old sod but "minded to apply" aint "We are going too".
Seems more political speak for I dont want to answer that and commit ourselves.

I can just see this being one thing that gets lost in the buget reforms for the EU. Something that we trade away for another reduced subsidy on fekken Camembert or Renaults.
We have very few perks left & this one we should hang on to!!!!
