David Cameron intervenes in Australia to make the case for policies that are hurting manufacturing industry here

August 01, 2011 10:05 AM

At ConservativeHome I've written an article following on from reports over the weekend that David Cameron is intervening in Australia to support proposals for a new carbon tax.  Just last week the Government admitted that bills for large energy intensive companies are set to rise by over fifty per cent, and industry expects those rises could be even sharper.  That will mean lost jobs and emissions exported to other countries instead of cut.  We need to reform policy here not encourage other countries to make the same mistakes.  You can read the article here with more detail on the issue and why you can't rely on Government energy price projections.At ConservativeHome I've written an article following on from reports over the weekend that David Cameron is intervening in Australia to support proposals for a new carbon tax.  Just last week the Government admitted that bills for large energy intensive companies are set to rise by over fifty per cent, and industry expects those rises could be even sharper.  That will mean lost jobs and emissions exported to other countries instead of cut.  We need to reform policy here not encourage other countries to make the same mistakes.  You can read the article here with more detail on the issue and why you can't rely on Government energy price projections.
