FOR INDEPENDENCE FOR THE UNION
Aircraft Passenger Duty

Speaking in August 2013, Garry Clark, head of policy and public affairs at the Scottish Chambers of Commerce, said[1]:"APD is a not just a barrier to inbound tourism. it's also a barrier to inbound investment and global connectivity." In May this year, Gordon Dewar, chief executive of Edinburgh Airport , said airlines were questioning the viability of basing planes in Scotland because of the high level of APD imposed by Westminster. The Calman Commission recommended that APD should be devolved to the Scottish Parliament[2] but no provision for this has been included in devolution legislation thus far.
