Initialy was pro this tax as I believed (wrongly) it had a large green element to it. Where the train can beat or equal the plane it could be used to change behaviour, fund HS2 network building, and fund CO2 offsets
In reality it is revenue for the general kitty and could actually encourage anti-green behaviours eg Taking a hop to ex Euro.

MartynS – Take a gander at 2.6.4 – it relates to upgrades – if there is a possibility of upgrade (60B springs to mind) then the full ADP appears payable.
