They are, but not in the way you would like. While looking on their website yesterday I noticed a consultation paper in which they were propsing to tier the approved mileage rates against CO2 emissions and mileage.

So a higher emission car would get a starting rate of 25p per mile and low emissions one something like 55p.

Barking mad, because that's exactly the reverse of the intention of the approved mileage rates.

First they f*ck up company cars, now they are trying to f*ck it up for those of us who have opted out.
The reasons for staying in the UK are rapidly running out, and the reasons for skipping the UK are growing on a daily basis.
Mind you, the numbers leaving the UK will never get anywhere near the ever increasing number of those arriving!

Never argue with an idiot on the internet. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.
