HMG has just published the result of the consultation on the removal of the tax rebate on red diesel, announced in the 2020 Budget.

The implications for private pleasure craft can be found in Chapter 4. The most relevant points are:

4.6 Following consultation, the government has decided to maintain the entitlement to use red diesel beyond April 2022 for all commercial boat operating industries, including but not limited to the fishing and inland water freight industries.

4.7 The government has therefore decided not to change the treatment of private pleasure craft in Great Britain, where they will continue to be able to use red diesel and pay their fuel supplier the difference between the red diesel rate and the white diesel rate on the proportion they intend to use for propulsion.

Because of the terms of the Northern Ireland Protocol of the Withdrawal Agreement this will not apply to Northern Ireland, where white diesel will have to be used, to bring alignment with the Republic of Ireland.

Good news, then, for boaters and the boatyards, who will not have to change any tanks. Looking at the long list of respondents to the consultation, notable organisations responded, not just boating clubs but others such as:

Angling Trust
British Marine
Inland Waterways Association
National Association of Boat Owners
Royal Norfolk & Suffolk Yacht Club
Royal Yachting Association

One was conspicuous by its absence,

"..for the avoidance of any doubt, the broads are not legally a national park and do not come under the national park legislation, and nor will they."

A very sensible move by the government going to save marina’s a lot of expense as well as us boaters I hope the Belgians and the Dutch accept it
