David Cameron was last night embroiled in a growing row over his support for a Tory commission advocating higher "green" taxes on motoring, domestic flights and home improvements.

The Quality of Life Policy Group, set up by Mr Cameron to help the fight against climate change, also proposed a tax on workplace car parking spaces, a halt to airport growth, a tax on gas-guzzling 4x4s and restrictions on car advertising. One of the most controversial ideas would require home-owners to pay to make their property greener if they increased their carbon footprint with a conservatory, extension or loft conversion.

Despite the commission recommending measures that would appear to penalise the lifestyles of traditional Tory voters, Mr Cameron embraced its findings, saying that much of it would be included in his next election manifesto.

No Telegraph.
