Motorists and holidaymakers face 'green tax' rise of £800
"The Energy Secretary backed plans to increase environmental levies by £15 billion to free hundreds of thousands of people from income tax.
"He is already drawing up proposals for the proportion of government revenue raised by environmental taxes to jump from 7.7 per cent to 10 per cent within five years, from £35 billion annually to around £50 billion.
"The increase is equivalent to an extra £800 from every taxpayer.
"At present, most of the money from green taxes - around £26 billion - comes through fuel duty."
